I would also got to see this castle if I were in Mahmutlar. Impressive , big castle just on the shore. good timing with this splash of water. Nice boulders with lichens. Is it possible to see it inside? The views from the towers could be nice.
I looked in Google where it is and now I remember. When I was in Alanya many years ago, I planned to rent a car and go for a trip to Anamur (I met the driver :)). But just the day before there was a small earthquake on Cyprus (some people noticed it, I was sleeping on the beach) and the day afterit was raining heavily, so we didn't go. What a pity! I was a bit afraid to go also because they told there were snakes around.

I think,so much to the subject what's your favourite color?:)
This is really perfectly framed scene!Both the soldier being on watch as well as the photographer make the scene complete and provide so important sense of scale for the monumental architecture.
Looking at your pictures from Russia,I think you could fill many memory cards of your camera:)To be honest I didnīt realize Moscow is such a picturesque city.
Have a good Sunday

There is a lot going on on your photos. Interesting white Shiva Temple but fascinating view of the houses and activity around it. Excellent picture, I can look at it long time.

Ciao Silvio, You show us usually the charming corners of your city, but now we see the whole area. Stunning panorama, with so many details to see. The big castle on the hill, the old bridge, the towers, the dome. Probably we saw them on your photos earlier. Gorgeous shot.

t is quite different if you look at the place that you know and the place unknown. I know this one and I can fully appreciate your composition. It is fantastic! I am jealous that I haven't made it. I like this distant view with the Tomb rather small and dominated by the big wall in two colours. The soldier is of course there all the time but you caught also the photographer. Perfect cut and here we do not see any sky, it is not important.
Maybe later I will show my version, but it is not so attractive, better not to compare. But something related in the strange way WILL BE today.
Have a wonderful day. In Warsaw it is close to zero.

Hello Laurent - I love watching life on Tonle Sap and your shot shows one small aspect of it brilliantly. You have composed this really strongly and from a good lowish vantage point. The taxi seems to glide through the waters quietly with the woman looking directly into your lens. Attractive warm light and a harmonious palette of colours too.
A lovely shot.

Hello Giorgio - I do like this. The repeating patterns formed by the trees and the wonderful variety of harmoniously tinted foliage make this a winner for me. I very much like the way the landscape is stripped of depth and volume and has become two dimensional.

Hello Noel - This sculpture appeals to me and I have been sat looking at it and thinking up various narratives to explain what I see. You have captured some very good variations of texture and colours on the surface of the work which can be clearly seen on the larger version.
I have the impression that you have softened the background in PP. Small tell tale signs like the area immediately beneath the curve of the wolf's head (which is crisp) and the soft fuzzy edges in places around the sculpture spoil the shot a little. I appreciate what you have done but maybe a little too obvious to work for me.
None-the-less an interesting post and a lovely sculpture
PS. I hope that you had a brilliant birthday

A charming fishing village and the house very close by the sea! I think you have achieved what you set out to do certainly gives it some atmosphere, a place with tremendous photo opportunities. Super composition, the colours on a brilliant sunny day just jump out at you when blue and white definitely collaborate as strong contrast. Excellent capture, Congrats.

Hello Mesut - One outstanding features of this composition is the way the net drapes down forming a fabulous back cloth for the fishermen. It helps to isolate the men from the rest of the port and focuses attention on what they are doing. I like that. The bright yellow floats lead us into the scene very well. You've come up with a super composition and interesting DL scene.
abmdsudi (41284) 2014-10-25 22:23
Creative and imaginative work well handled. The composition you have chosen works extremely well that you've caught the plane brilliantly, it's lovely and sharp with more room in front of the plane beautifully in focus and matching the general light value of the bg. A well conceived, planned and executed image, very nice work., Congrats.

A picturesque harbour scene and wonderful splash of sunshine colour nicely captured with lovely foreground interest with position of the boats as if guiding our vision into the backdrop interest and whole picture. Fab shooting low point, lovely the way you have fitted the attractive elements into the frame & so much detail to enjoy particularly I love the fresh blue tones creating superb overall contrast. Excellent lens work as usual and tfs.

The red punchy color just jumps out at thumbnail stinging the eyes real deep inside! A fabulous shot in a state of calmness that you have obviously caught so expertly and so much more to look around. Full marks for exposure, colours and contrast, indeed delightful and a photographer's paradise there brilliantly captured. Remarkable shot, Congrats, TFS.

A close up abstract artwork with messages which says much for us to decipher! and your notes explain what's going on there. It looks like you have some bold vibrant colors on the wall there - credit to your great eyes as this keeps grabbing attention with its strong highlights. It's delightful, life-enhancing and great too that you've managed to show so much in one image. It's an excellent everyday scene and your awareness so well realised and shot. Great work! Congrats
abmdsudi (41284) 2014-10-25 21:08
Good framing works with this pic as the boat dominates lending a great impact with other interest to complement the whole shot. The gorgeous warm light, colours and exposure are very uplifting and catchy.
Superb capture, Congrats. TFS
