Interesting capture of those strange succulents.
Good pov and layout. Specially the shadows of the foremost plants creates an interesting effect.
Who knows maybe they have inspired the architects of the European Gothic aera ??
TFS and have a nice weekend

Well, your debut on TE was from the Maldives, i am amazed to see even Furachan here :)))
Good bye Maldives is a sad title, i now remember my feelings upon leaving that paradise, so bad to come back...
I like the overexposure on the sea, and the silhouettes in the boat. And generally speaking, what a great improvement in your photos. TE is a great school indeed for the ones who can improve.

Oh, i haven't seen such a photo from Thailand, always some temples, locals or food. You did it again, sharing something different. The grass looks awesome, silhouetted. Is that a dog up there inside the crowd? :))
ps: "go there if you can", are you talking to me? :)))

Another wonderful stroll memory lane, with this 58-year Pontiac! In the land where automobiles never seem to die, but simply get resurrected again until they reach immortality. I remember these care from my childhood. It is remarkable that not only the colors are in remarkable shape, even the chrome has not rusted. You've captured the car from the best vantage point possible, showing the grill, the side and the top.

It is interesting and fun to discover your gallery, which is great and quite underrated, imho.
I like your ideas and your cool pp techniques, and this one, par example, is a good one to show your creativity in looking at things.

Shooting peacocks is a matter of luck and patience, especialy if the tail is not opened like this, you have to stimulate the bird to Show you his merits :)
Great tight crop, i'd even try to find and angle which would eliminate the top right corner without feathers.

Old lady o kadar old mudur bilemedim ama heykellerden genç olduğu kesin. Yine de foto arkeoloji müzesine gitme isteği uyandırmadı. Son zamanlara orda yatıp kalktığımdan olabilir belki :P
Urla'da rakı balıklar, TE başında votkalar... Son zamanlarda iyice Sue Ellen'a bağladın :P

So this is the photo you mentioned to me yesterday.
Well yes, the photos are truly close relatives, both countrywise and conceptually. A small crop from a larger photo might have reduced the shapness a bit, but the story is quite interesting by itself and makes your photo worth appreciating. You may add some borders to the top and bottom to give a cinematic attire.
