I spent last week 5 days in the most North-Eastern point of Anatolia; in Borçka which borders to Georgia.
You'll see here different portraits of people living there. The second series will contain of landscapes which is not far different for Alpine scenes of Switzerland and the last group will show you different architectorial details of the area.
This first one shows a dancer from Georgia which took part within a dancers group from there, who performed their art within a local festival.
Geçen hafta beş gün boyunca ülkemizin en Kuzey-Doğu ucunda; Gürcistanla hemsınır Borçka ve yöresindeydim.
Bu dizinin ilk bölümünde bu bölgede yaşayan insan portreleri göreceksiniz. Dizinin ikinci bölümünde ise, İsviçre Alp'lerinden hiç de farkı olmayan manzaralar göreceksiniz.
Bu ilk karede, Macahel Bal Festivali için Gürcistan'dan gelmiş bir dansçı grubun bayan üyesini görüyorsunuz.

bellissimo ritratto, lo sguardo è molto intenso e il viso è racchiuso in due colori dominanti, il nero e il rosso, che attirano l'attenzione.
Bel colpo, una espressione naturale di ottima fattura.

Very beautiful portrait with a natural beauty!
I like the composition, colours and moment.
She has so beautiful hair too.

Hello dear Mesut,
this portrait is absolutely fascinating, what a tremendous side glance! Trying to decipher this expression is vain but exciting. The details of the costume are very attractive and complement this interesting face effectively. The colours are great and the reds stand out superbly. The tight vertical frame was an excellent choice enhancing focus and intensity. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great day,

This is a stunning portrait with fabulous detail and sharpness, the girl beautifully portrayed against a nicely out of focus background. The bright red of her dress and her lipstick contrast perfectly with her dark eyes, hair and other clothing.
Your composition is excellent, I love the sideways glance, the light and colours are superb and the details and sharpness exquisite.

Very nice portrait, I like this lovely face with strong character. This part of Turkey is Anatolia too, right?
I've thought about the South coast only.
daddo (23106) 2014-08-18 5:28
Merhaba Mesut. The young woman has a strong presence due to her finely formed features and her captivating glance. The red lipstick echo the red parts of the costume. Pity that the plaits are not her own, but then who wears such long hair these days?Initially I thought she was Turkish due to the prominent cheekbones, but she is Georgian as you say. God knows what she is thinking! Selam. Klaudio.

a very fine portrait of the dancer,with such dark eyes and red lips she makes a most attractive subject.Irresistible.
Best regards Les.
holmertz (38697) 2014-08-18 7:18
A Georgian face is not quite Turkish :-), and neither does this look like an ordinary dress seen everyday, but it is still a beautiful face and an attractive composition of bright red and black. I am unsure if she is posing for you but looking aside, or if you managed to capture this fine shot in the crowd without her knowledge,

Çok net bir kare. Renkler çok hoş. Çektiğiniz kişi de profesyonel manken gibi. Teşekkürler...

that's a beautiful face from Northern Turkey.
Excellent portrait in fine colors and good textures,
willperrett (6426) 2014-08-18 10:01
She may have been performing, but you still had to trip the shutter at the precise moment to catch this fleeting but challenging expression. Super job!
PiotrF (5936) 2014-08-18 12:15
A very beautiful portrait of lovely girl,fine colours and details.
very well captured in this interesting picture
Fis2 (83230) 2014-08-18 12:41
Beautiful woman, curious face.
Good frame and super colors.
Royaldevon (27611) 2014-08-18 12:58
This is a splendid portrait where the facial details are sharp but, more than that, you have given her character. She is a very alert and confident lady, unafraid of watching, assessing, with just a twinkle in her eye!
Your shallow dof captures her face and costume clearly, whilst the b/g is perfectly unobtrusive.
My warm regards,
jadesgran (5184) 2014-08-18 13:06
This portrait of a beautiful lady is very striking.
The red of her lipstick matches the red on her outfit.I like the tight crop and the format.
boa (5881) 2014-08-18 13:12
it must have been a very interesting visit in this region. A beautiful portrait of this beautiful woman! An excellent composition and a small glimpse of her traditional clothing. Tfs!
Have a nice evening/

Great portrait, Mesut. Bright colors and amazing details. This is the face of a people.
jjcordier (74564) 2014-08-18 23:30
Beau portrait, en rouge et noir, de cette femme au regard fier et décidé.
jhm (136728) 2014-08-19 4:27
I choose these picture with the lady face, maybe is your last picture also very nice but this is my prefer.
The red lips and the eyes are very nice photographed.
Very well composition, nice presentation.
Nice done, TFS.

Hello Mesut - This is a very good example of how colour can play a primary role in photography. Your portrait has a good tight crop and the woman's eyes are quite wonderful; we immediately begin to wonder what she is looking at with her sidelong glance. As to the colours, the palette of blacks and neutrals contrasted by the rich red lips and dress is superb. The only thing I may change slightly is the blue... perhaps it could be softened. Other wise this is really lovely.

Güzel bir kız, güzel de bir bakış:)
Karadeniz portreleriniz çok başarılı, tebrikler!

It's a very nice portrait of an Turkey woman, I guess. Her facial expression looks very serious. You captured it very well.
