Wow Bahadir! these photos certainly DO have lots of "wow" factor....

You've captured them brilliantly, both portraying special qualities of the sun, light, reflections, water, rocks, and overall landscape.

A personal preference, the second photo is my favourite of the two (but both deserve to have a wallbuilt just to hang these photos on them!!) The natural "frame" of rocks on both sides of the photo and the more subtle setting sun just really do it for me.

The reflections on the rocks (as others have also written) is supberb, and I really think you've done a great job with the post processing (and I appreciate it could have been quite an arduous task!)

So well done and thanks for sharing these scenes... only 20 miles from you home. You're a fortunate man! And a generous one to share your special captures with us too!

All the best

Paul

Bob, since your feedfacks are so pleasing I think I should learn to look around with a fresh eye so as not to miss any of them!

Ross, you hit the nail on the head! Ever since I was eight or ten mixing the pigments and poppy seed oil to help my uncle prepare oil paints, the dream of performing as a painter has survived in my soul

...........................................

Drewaz, to be honest, my take would be number 2 also!
Thank you for your valuable consideration.

Andrew, reading through your lines, once again, I feel priviledged to have sensitive and tasteful spirits around me...Btw, I'd like to see some photos of your friend you mentioned. I should also thank you for your kind advice which I will always remember!!

.................................................. ..

Razor, thank you for your sweet massage


.................................................. .

Paul, I'd like you to know that I say 'Wow!' seeing your replies!
You say ''A personal preference, the second photo is my favourite of the two''. I gather that, like Drewaz (and myself!!),you favour the second one regarding the image..Still I must mention that shooting the first one, if memory serves, was far more entertaining!
You say'' ... You're a fortunate man! And a generous one to share your special captures with us too!''
Well, especially considering the presence of my friends here in this site I must be a fortunate man, indeed. The rest is simply inevitable

Excellent my friend, cannot fault them even if one wanted to, very tricky lighting but you have done a great job.

Bahadir,

Beautiful use of the natural surroundings to frame the sunset. Love the layers that you provide, the waves in the foreground, the rocks and of course the mountains in the background.

This shot brings to mindlines from an old song,

"Far away places with strange-sounding names
Far away over the sea
Those far away places with the strange-sounding names
Are callin', callin' me"

One day I'll answer the call.

Aloha

Selvin, it's so nice to receive your encouraging feedback once again.

How lovely lyrics...

And I remember a book by Richard Bach: There is no Such Place as Far Away!

You are anxiously expected

Not much to say that hasn't been said already, but I really like that first one especially!

John.
