    Hi Greg, Wonderful shot, with just a glimpse of a person in the misty BG. Well controlled exposure, shooting into the light, whilst retaining detail on the tree trucks. Cheers, steve

    Hi Bert, A simple composition which works well. I'm surprised that the exposure was 30 seconds at 1.4. Must have been a very dark scene! cheers, Steve

    Hi Gert, I remember Mardin more for the monastery on its outskirts but this shot shows some really interesting buildings, for those not deterred by a bit of dirt. Another good scan from your archives. cheers, Steve

    Hi Abmdsudi,

    I'm a fan of ultra wide angle shots and you've used that lens to good effect here. Waiting for the man was a good idea, even better that he was pushing a bike. cheers, Steve

    Hi Chris,

    looks like a fine location for bathers and turtles alike, and hopefully will remain so. Very nice shot. Like Bev, my inclination would have been to move to the right so the truck didn't split the umbrellas and would frame the whole scene, although perhaps that wasn't possible. cheers, steve

    Hi Ian, that is a tree! From the thumbnail I had no idea it was so large - good idea to include some people for scale. cheers, Steve

    Hi Gert, nice to hear from you, on my monkey photo. Great to see that there are still gems emerging from your archives. You may have been a young photographer, but getting the men to face the town rather than the camera produced a much more natural and interesting image. As one who has struggled scanning old film images I can sympathise, although it looks to me that you made some good choices in the process. Cheers, Steve

    Hi Malgo, dramatic and impressive structures indeed, and inclusion of the people give a sense of the scale. One is left to contemplate the human effort to construct them. cheers, Steve

    Hi Andrew, and the wait was worthwhile. Exceptional composition, with the stacks in the BG and people for perspective and a bit of colour in the otherwise monochrome image. Cheers, Steve

    Hi Abmdsudi, interesting compositional choices make this image work. The main element, the face, relegated to small part of the image, but nevertheless drawing the viewers attention. nice work. cheers, Steve
