Hello Bahadir, really lovely shots, I hope you don't mind but i have tweaked you pic #2 by altering the brightness/ contrast + colour balance, i also removed the strange blue sphere shape at the base of the 3rd tree from the right??. Loooks like a really tranqual place for a walk (if a little warm for us "blue"Brits):lol:. Keep up thegood work. Graham

No, not at all, Graham.I always consider editing a way of taking pleasure from the image, which is a means of complimenting the shooter :-)I do appreciate your effort and time you spared. One can feelyour boost! Still, hope you don't mind me verbally editing your edit a little..In the first place, the increased brightness caused the almost white skytend to appear overexposed partially devouring some of the fine details of the branches networking againist the sky. Secondly, the lightbeamsalso seem tobe deprived oftheir penetrating role a little if not remarkably. However I liked your edit. Ah especially your removing the blue sphare, possibly the coat of our ladyfriend, is a sign ofappreciable observation skill.Thank you Graham!

Beautiful captures as always, Bahadir!! Thank you for showing more beauty of your area. I never imagined Turkey to have such lush greens. The shot of the sunrays is just awesome....truly breathtaking! Thanks again for expanding my view of this wonderful planet of ours!

Ron

I love the third shot Bahadir. I am very fond of dark foregrounds and lighter backgrounds - the silhouette effect is one of my favorites. And I must say I prefer your original #2, for the reasons you gave. The sunbeams weren't as dramatic in the edit. But an interesting concept from Graham.

I too am amazed at the greenery in your mountains. The movie scenery of Turkey is always brown and stark - when will I learn not to trust Hollywood for anything, even truthful renditions of locations! Nice to have a beautiful gulf on one side of you and those mountains on the other!

Somehow, I knew you'd like it before even posting it! I think I'm starting tounderstand your taste putin the following statement,as well as inyour shots so far

On the other hand I am surprised to hear you hada similarimpression with Ron about Anatolia beingbrown and stark. Turkey which has a widerange of climate and geography,performs 75% of world's hazelnut production and thus places first in the world, after all. Thebiggest hazelnut producer in the US is the state of Oregon which gives an idea about the climateand hazelnut relation

My lack of knowledge knows no bounds; fortunately my love of learning is boundless as well. This is such a delightful way to learn about so much: photograhy, geography, humanity, and on and on.....

PS When I looked up Anatolia on Google maps, it took me to Germany.... Oh dear. Guess I'll have to go back to the old fashioned printed word.

Bahadir, these are really nice indeed especially the second one, but I'm just repeating what other people have already said, so I'll shut up now :-)

John.
