This month's challenge has made us all DOF conscious - You have done well here - No 1 is stunning, and would have been so even without HDR, but is especially dimensional with it. Thanks for the tour.

I have to weigh in on these great shots too Bahadir. Your composition was excellent, especially on the first one (my favorite) and you did a great job with the HDR, very subtle and realistic.

What a fantastic place to photograph. I don't know anything about the HDR stuff yet, but I like this series. TFS!

Thanks a lot for your insightful comment. Actually I first thought of sending #1 in this month's challenge regarding the subject : ) The closeness of the capital in the composition had me select a smaller aperture than I usually do, for an extended DOF.

Thank you for your kind words of appreciation, Simon. I'm so happy to have some very skillful friends from Oz thanks to Steve's, oh, not all are Pentaxian though

Thank you Tim! It's all about appreciation of the subject I'd even say. Oh, I remember my father taking the family to such ancient sites letting me play there for hours as I do now : ) Ah, some painstaking time at PS after the tonemapping is also included in the game!

Happy to read your kind feedback! Oh, when you feel obliged to shoot bravely against the sun contrary to the common advice, as I did just a year and half ago, you'll be more motivated for the plunge into hdr : )
