Photographer's Note

I know some folks are real sticklers for perspective but in this wide angled view I thought it more important to have the couple walking down the street hand in hand in a perpendicular state. I was less concerned with the leaning columns at left. The bg arch above the couple acts as a nice frame. And the man is wearing red! It's not often tourists enhance a shot as they are often wandering around like Brown's cows, but here I think it worked well. The ancient city is 15 km east of Antalya and dates from 1209 BC. It is Greek, Roman & Byzantine in nature. Alexander the Great was here in 333 BC, & St Paul in 46 AD. More info here:
