Bahadir,

A very interesting set of landscape / history-scape photos! Wow, the natural circle of rocks / formation of the land in the first photo seems to just speak of a "holy meeting place"... and you've captured it well. Either a group of druids (ala "Asterix and Obelix" style / setting), OR as MsPuck said... monks in their robes! I've just noticed the tourists (?) at the bottom of the photo though...

The 2nd photo... you've done that well. A huge dynamic range/ contrast between the outdoor (sun-bathed scene) and the inside (darker walls, etc). I'm curious Did you use a bit of post processing (e.g. shadows/ highlights) OR fill flash to help?In any case you've done well in presenting this to us, and I also love seeing the carvings subtly visible too!

Thanks for sharing, as always, in photos and words!

Paul

...which offered a big comprimise between the inside and outdoor at the time of shooting, which later endedin toiling a little at PS to save what I actually saw outsideTherse camerashardlymatch with the perfection of human eye when dynamic range is also concerned!

Another nice photo bahadir its like a photo taken from the moon, do me a favour try it in B/W see what you think, the second photo is nice but the light coming through is a little over exposed.

Sir Alex! That's surely a tasteful suggestion I hear from you again:

As a matter of fact I also thought of it as I wasposting this image. Now, encouraged by yourself, I don't see why I shouldn't! I also appliedsome yellow photo filter. Well, looking at the final image,the least I can say is that, I do not repent:G

Pleaselet meknow your opinion

Excellent bahadir, B/W works on a lot of shots, some people are a little reluctant to try it, the only think I would have done in your B/W is dodge & burn on the clouds to fetch them out a little more.

Ah, joke aside,when I think ofthe landscape works by Ansel Adams, I should say, there's much truthin this saying from you as ever!
