    Hi Daniel

    Good sharpness and perspective with the neatly stacked stones guiding the eye towards the bg Acropolis. The tourists animate the scene and provide scale. Tfs!

    Well framed and composed placing the arch on the vertical 1/3 axis point. Good sharpness and the red bushes by the portal add symmetry and warm cold colour contrasts with the blue sky. Tfs!

    Hi Murat,

    Sad reflection on the stupidity of Erdogan. Good use of desaturation to emphasise the colour and height of the golden Virgin Mary fresco. Europe also went through an iconoclastic stage in the 14th century. Many priceless statues and works of art were destroyed. Even the Byzantines practised Iconoclasm in the 8th & 9th centuries. Fortunately they moved on and became more tolerant. Tfs!

    Punchy light contrasts with perfect sharpness and nice warm cold color contrast. The footprints in the sand ad lead in lines. Looks like few bikes and even a 4wd were there before you. Tfs!

    Hello Gert

    One that popped up in your gallery. Even though I didn't live right in Istanbul, I still visited it as often as possible during weekends and time off, and eventually got to see almost everything of note, except for the basilica cistern. Truly one of the world's great cities. Tfs!
