Taken thıs afternoon at the wonderful palace of Ishak Pasha near the tozn of Dougbeyazıt ın Eastern Turkey. The palace ıs a wonderful mıxture of varıous archıtectural styles. The area has a strong mılıtary presence due to the closeness of the Iranıan and Armenıan borders.
It seems that a whole regıment was tourıng the palace whıle I was there whıch provıded some ınterestıng photo ops.
Sorry about the qualıty I have uploaded thıs to the hotel's computer and resızed ıt as best I could based usıng the turkısh language basıc wındows software avaılable.

bonsoir Daniel; une façon originale de présenter ce bâtiment, j'aime beaucoup le tilt qui permet d'inclure les deux militaires. bonne composition

Huhmm... seems like a hip shot, which I don't blame you for
in these circumstances, Daniel. Turkish authorities
can be nasty, I think, when it comes to pointing cameras to soldiers or anything military, no?
Of course, the shot is not the sharpest, but given the
fact that you couldn't have edited it better, it looks quite alright.

good shot, with original POV, almost like a sneak peek of the situation. I don't know if the software is to blame but the image looks a little flat. However it has nice colours and light

there is your tilt, and there is your good interaction with the people again... even with the soldiers!...
glad to see that you are safe and happy out there... knowing you was great indeed my friend, had a wonderful weekend with you guys, hope to do the same very soon... take care... (of him too...)

what a TE addiction this is!
trying to communicate even in the hotels of dogubeyazit...
but it is very kind of you to do this like that, it is like a soldier sending postcards to his mama in order to report that he is sound and safe. now that we know you are sound and safe (and not kidnapped yet), i can congratulate you for this daring journey.
the photo has this dynamic tilt, yes a bit blurred but who cares. i had not seen this place from so close, so it is a quite original one for me. of course the soldiers are interesting figures over there.

Hey where did you find a computer and internet connection??? I didn't notice you were a TE addict! Well actually it is nice to see photos from you, so that we can assure ourselves that you are OK and not kidnapped yet :)
Your tilt approach took my attention when you were in Istanbul, you usually hold the camera quite tilted. If this photo is the result then keep doing it this way and please keep sharing from your Eastern Turkey trip..

Imagen muy buena con POV girado, la sensacion de ambiente revuelto producido por los militares y esa iglesia medio arabe, producen una imagen con tono belico.
me gusta el trabajo

Je compatis le problème que tu as subit pour publier cette image.
En effet la compression est forte et l'image est à 61 KO.
Cadrage original, mais je me suis permis un WS pour essayer d'affiner.

indeed, the quality is not that good (I guess a repost would help when you get home). I like the idea, almost a "hidden camera" shot from a journalist in hostile territory ;-). Looks like a great place. TFS
