Two fantastic shots for sure, but I personally like the workshop image best. Great work my friend displaying these wonderful salamanders for us to see.

Bayram hocam hepsi de güzel. Ama sanki bu hepsinden daha güzel:)
Emeğinize sağlık. Saygılarımla.
Dear Prof Bayram, I just went through your revised profile and was deeply distressed to know that you underwent an intense sense of frustration and despair through some unfortunate events/reactions occuring on TN. It just so happened that in the past one year, I could not remain active here due to my taxing job responsibilities and was thus unaware of these developments.
However, I must admit that I do agree with some of your observations on the current scenario on TN. The essence of this site that emerged strongly in the initial years of its existence has, without any doubt, disappeared almost completely now.
Nevertheless, it is my strong conviction that serious-minded nature lovers will remain impervious to negative influences creeping into TN. I am happy that after a rather impulsive reaction of scrapping your great work from the site (forgive me for my frankness) you have resumed to post your pictures again.
Your specialization in reptiles becomes more than manifest in this picture of two Anatolian lizards basking in the sun.
Keep the positive spirit up, my friend. Life must go on.

Tu nous offres toujours des prises de vue très originales.
Ces Salamandres originaires de Turquie sont de beaux spécimen
Merci et bravo pour cette découverte
I agree fully with Ram about the disappointment, TrekNature losing all your valuable contributions. All this happened while I was ill - and I am amazed.
Living in an arid area, I never see Salamanders and did a bit of reading... and found it very interesting, that
many salamanders are blind (living in caves); the Hellbender (North America) hides the eggs under a stone and defends them agains intruder as well as against his own family; Tiger Salamanders trick a female - who is busy picking up a spermpackage from her chosen suitor - by quickly positioning his own sperm package on top...
Your picture is fascinating, showing the protruding (frog-like) eyes of the Ladies. Is there a theory, why their and the frogs'eyes are sticking out (or do they all have a thyroid problem?)
I also notice on the right front leg of the animal on the left, that it has some sort of warts or is it a parasite?
I do prefer the Workshop image - do not know enough about settings:-) - but because it shows the facial expression. But both photos are excellent from the technical point of view like ALL YOUR WORK.
Thanks for continuing to educate us amateurs.
Have a nice evening
PS: My Hard Disk needed reformatting, and I lost my Turkish lessons.

Ciao BBB. Special light and colours in a great compo which would have been better with an uniform BG. (Only my opinion). But you could not choose MF!
Emeğine sağlık hocam, tür süper. Bunları pek bilmiyorum bilirsin, ama şu var belli ki fark etmek ve fotoğraflamak zordur. Ellerine sağlık, sevgiler selamlar..

very interesting shot, i have never seen salamanders like this, and you have taken them with very sharp details and nice pose, i like also the natural environment with green moss, beautiful lighting and great color tones
Have a good night

Ben bunları görsem kertenkele derdim. Ama sen kurbağa olduklarını söylüyorsun. Çok ilginç. Daha öğrenecek çok şey var senden. Ellerine sağlık.

Nice POV and a pleasant composition.The little salamanders have formed a soft yet clear ontrast to the greenish tones of the ground.
