Hi Bahadir

A great photo, of people obviously enjoying a special reunion!

Looks like everyone is very glad... there are many natural smiles and laughs suggested in the photo.

Who took the photo? (or was it by timer?)

You look very happy (and I must add, perhaps even wiser in appearance than your profile photo). Ahhh... times adds maturity even to the mature?

Good to see a photo of your wife amongst them too.

The photo seems slightly tilted .... noticeable both in the people as well as the building lines. But it's still a great photo.

Best wishes

Paul

Hi Bahadir

Here is a quick 2 minute edit (rotate, crop and slight colour / saturation adjustment).

Hope you like my take on it.

Paul

Dear Paul (pj'74), thank you so much for your kind interest and compliments : )I liked your edit, whichseems to have corrected the tilt andfilledwith the frame morewith subjects. It may not sound very sane(!!) but I posted this picture after2:30a.m when we arrived home:?Yea, it was great to see the crew after 22 years!!Btw, my avatar isa heavy crop taken aboutfour years ago in another reunion (that of mountaineers) :-)Ahhh...you know, the more one speaks of reunions the more.... ;)But, you're kind enough to put it 'wiser' rather than 'older' :-)One thingI'd like to convey you is that; it was interesting to see one of my best friends at high school there who is now a doctor and also leads a hard rock band (he was always very much into musicas well asbeing a great person to talk to!), lookedlike you,about which Icould not help butmentioned the resemblanceto him also!!Ah,I should have taken a photo of him (Alp) exclusively for evidence!

As for the picture itsef, having checked the settings (I wrote above) and the pop up flash!! I gavethe camerato an old friend's (on my left)hubby : ) I preferred the shutter priority to eliminateany sort of blurriness.

Cheers!
