Merhaba Selen Hanim,
It is not often we have the pleasure of seeing a lanscape picture with four parts nearly all in full focus! The close FG thistle flowers, the lake, the Taurus Mts. and the sky, all set in a fine composition that give the image a great perspective.
Thanks and best wishes,

Hello Selene,
Nice to see a picture from you again. A landscape which you have taken from a beautiful point of view including the thistles in the foreground. How beautiful this lake and the Taurus mountains over which the deep-blue sky shaws its beautiful clouds. A sunny shot!
Thanks and kind regards

Hi Selen . Nice to see you posting again. This picture has a 3D style to it. The clouds looks like smoke coming from the mountains. Fine detail and amazing colours. Well done and keep on posting.

Selen hanım selamlar,
Başarılı bir manzara kompozisyon ...
Doygun renkler ve netliği ile fantastik görünüyor.
Gökyüzü bulutları, zemine düşen gölgeleri ile ayrı bir güzellik katmışlar.
Emeğinize sağlık,

Merhaba Selen!
Very nice landscape picture. Wide, panoramic view and beautiful colours, but I think that these plants in the 1st plan are not necessary (only my opinion :>).
Greetings from Lodz,

Good to see you posting again and this is a wonderful view of the Taurus mountains. I like your low POV and the interesting cloud formations above the mountains. Excellent sharpness, lovely colours and a very fine composition.

Watching your photos from Turkey makes me more and more eager to travel across this country. So far I reached only the European part...

I love the composition of the photo with these thistles in foreground, thay add a lot of to this otherwise static composition. Nice colours and perfect sharpness!
Best greetings and TFS!

Ellrinize sağlık...

Hallo Selen
What a wonderful scenery with wide open spaces!. Very pleasant image with warm and rich colours, and indeed a peaceful and serene view. This is indeed a large piece of terrain, as far as one can look with the eye. The blue sky with lovely white clouds peeping at the top of the mountain is beautiful. Thanks for sharing.
Kind regards

Hi Selen,
breatthaking view of snow covered Taurus mountains very sharp in cristal clear air behind the calm waters. Carefully composed landscape in a classical way, delivering a very beautiful, eye catching image of quintessental summertime beauty.
Thank you! With best regards,

Excellent clarity & colors Selen..
Just beautiful! :)

Hello Selen! Nice lake, very nice landscape. Dangerous thistle. Good colours. Very good POV and composition. Superb shot. Good luck!

I love how the clouds seem to just float out of the mountain, like there a giant behind the mountain smoking something :)
Beautiful colors, good light, love the wide open space with peaceful atmosphere. I like the foreground flowers, though I think it would look nice without it for a cleaner composition and without anything blocking the view of the mountain and lake.
