    Merhaba Murat Bey,

    "Oldies are goldies," as Sabyasachi (a Trekkie from years back) used to describe the photos from his archives. The old ferry with the vertical prow makes a good focal point, balancing the second focal point of the raft/dock jutting out from the left. It's fund to see the dated ferries, just as it with the old ferries that used to crisscross the waters of the Bosphorus.

    Warm regards from a very warm Sidney, AU.

    Warm regards,

    Bulent

    Hello Chris,

    The woman in red does create an eye-catching chop mark. An appropriate title for the well composed shot from last October when we were next door to you in Greece. Like Mesut, on my father's side, my roots are partly from Albania. My father was born in Ohrid in 1910, when the area was part of the Ottoman Empire. Now we are in the land of your roots — in Sydney — waiting for a flight to Brisbane.

    Warm regards,

    Bulent

    Hi Krzysztof
    you know i'm going to love this one.
    perhaps your best lighting/exposure/clarity shot yet of this majestic Castle.
    interesting to see the sprinkling of homes in the low bg too.
    lovely blues to compliment the greens
    nice shot
    cheers

    Hi Roland
    so this is the famous island of Mykonos right?
    I hear this is the party island? lots of nightclubs and drinking going on with the young crowd.

    if so, than this is certainly a different take on the subject material :)

    looks quite casual and relaxed.
    on a side note, its interesting for me as a Canadian to see all the smoking ash trays on the tables - that would be hard to find here in Canada!

    rustic scene with the windmills in the bg too, i like this one
    cheers

    Hi Mesut
    looks like the perfect kind of day for taking out the old sailboat :)
    looks windy, but thats what they want.
    I'd feel much more comfortable on the ground/land.
    nice to have the mountains in the bg and the clouds to cap it all off. Enjoy your day

    Hi Ann
    I think next time you need to add more color and spice to your photo, not enough in this one haha :)

    your story reminds me of a story i heard from a friend of mine. She was traveling through Ireland, and visited a pub which was over 100 years old, not sure how old exactly....but anyways...because of it being constructed so long ago, most people back then were much shorter in height.
    So the door was VERY short compared to our doors today...interesting right?

    maybe not your most PRETTY photograph but it certainly sparkles and shines. Where are my sunglasses!
    cheers

    Hi Gildas
    we don't often get to see alot of browns, pure browns like this on our photos. this is a nice compliment with the blues and whites, they work well together i think.
    smart placement of the horizon line as well, don't place it at the half way mark :) looks best up where you placed it.
    cheers

    Hi Ra
    you know how much i often say that we as photographers need to look UP more often....this is exactly why!
    look at the photo you captured, its brilliant.
    I also like that the you took it in the vertical but presented it sideways, very clever final result.
    moody, textural, fun composition, looks great.

    Hi Noel
    now there's a friendly face!
    Hard to pass up on this gal.
    for obvious reasons the lady's dress/attire suits the bill perfectly. I wonder how differently she looks in her day to day outfits compared to this.
    always enjoy these shots of yours.
    colourful and full of culture

    Hi Chris
    ah yes, my lady in red! photos will always look better with a lady in a red dress :) Would you agree?

    and the red dress contrasts smartly with the vivid blue sky line, and the pastel browns/beiges.
    luminous and very warm

    Hi Luciano
    I've never heard of this town/city before, as i'm looking at it in the bg there seems to be alot of charming architecture to be photographed - get to it my friend! haha

    you couldn't have asked for a better set of clouds, they add so much depth and interest.
    bright light, warm tones, photogenic scenery.
    have a nice day
