My wife and our friends were to be tired out after the to climb up. When I taken Machu Piccu ruins, they were lie down on to the grassy that I thought empty point my frame. And that moment, the sunlight come on the scene straight to ruins and womens... Exellent light. I can taken a few photos. Later the sun escape the scene.

Its looking damn good. A nice POV. One can have a glance of whole of the ruins and at the same time can see womens. Really its nicely taken shot.

I like the perspective of your image and the way that my view is going from the people to the ruins and to the cloudy sky.

I like your shot. Great sharpness and colors, a different point of view of this famous place. Also a touch of humour.

Hello Mustafa. A wonderful photo you have here. You are right, the sunlight at that moment made this an excellent moment to take the shot, leaving the side of the peak in the cloud's shadow. Great composition with wide angle lens, with the ladies arranged diagonally across the foreground, their legs pointing to the rocky peak. Great colours. Just a very fine shot.

Great picture! I love the contrasting colors and use of light. A frsh take on a well-known sight.

Great POV Mustafa! Something tells me though that a change in White Balance would have made the skin tone of the ladies less pale. The colors of the clothes against the natural setting makes the picture very very eyecatching! Great shot! Im sure you had fun there...

Great shot Mustafa. Love your angle and POV, creating a very "deep" image as well as a very well composed one. Composition is excellent, and for Machu Picchu, very original. Colors are equally as good, with the women's bright clothes contrasting nicely against the vibrant green grass.
This one goes right into my "Simply Great Angles" theme just for your POV. Great thinking with this shot. A very original take on the Inca city in the clouds.
Wouldn't change a thing.

It's a perfect POV … I saw so many posts of this " chewed" place and the way you build your composition with those three colorful hobos in the foreground is what makes the different here

I like your use of the wide angle to give the overall impact to this image which is helped by the wonderfully colourful sky and the orange sweater.

The colours are a bit oversaturated, but the composition is undoubtedly perfect!

I like how you play with the wide-angle here.
Really nice picture of this famous site.
I like the vivid colors contrast.

This reminds me of a magazine's vacation advertisement. The ladies clothing is so colorful and vibrant as well as the great greens from the ruins. Is Machu Piccu always cloudy? I've never seen a clear sky photo from there. Fabulous photograph. I'm adding it as a favorite.
EMA (313) 2007-10-31 10:50
Wow, incredible view. I love the angle on this picture. You captured the mood very well!

C'est une vue originale du macchupiccu comme on n'a pas l'habitude d'en voir

livermore (1631) 2012-11-18 2:21
C'est une très belle image, j'aime beaucoup.
La prise de vue dans la perspective, la position allongée des femmes et leurs tenues qui ressortent parfaitement sur le vert. Le vert du paysage dynamique et contrasté.

Very beautiful scene and somehow brings me good mood. Contribute to it give clearness and cheerful colors.
I wish that I'm lying there and enjoy the view.
