another fantastic shell in your
incomparable and unique gallery
thanks and greeting sERGIO
Hello Mr. Mehmet,
In early 2009, when I started in TN, a collection that most caught my attention was the pictures of their shells. Today I can say it is a pleasure continue viewing your photographic works.
As always, this has been masterfully photographed, conveying perfectly the structure of the shell, great lines, and providing excellent depth to the beholder.
I must say that your photos are too much of your personal touch.
Greetings, thanks for posting.
Once again, you present a very attractive shell, Mehmet.
It is so sleek looking and so very finely shaped work of art crafted by Mother Nature.
However, the credit goes to you for catching this specimen with the acumen of a professional nature photographer and highlighting its beauty through your tremendously rich sense of aesthetics.
It is worth its while to wait for your shell pictures, so thank you very much for enriching us by sharing this wonderful image.

Hello friend Mehmet,
You are the master of the shhells.
Another very good one.
A fine portrait of this beautiful large shell presented with your usual high standard to show all the features from the ventral POV. I wouldn't have noticed the restoration at the tip if it had not been for your excellent note.
Thanks and have a good week,

Mehmet hocam merhabalar...
Yine harika bir kare. ellerinize sağlık
We have been away for 3 weeks and I missed out on some lovely images which is a pity, but this beautifully shaped shell caught my eye upon browsing through the gallery, it is really a striking and the blend of colours and markings displays lovely. I just love the curls at the upper part of the shell as it catches the eye immediately. Like all your previous postings, this one is done with pride and preciseness and I apppreciate you for that. Thanks for sharing and best regards.
I'll be posting some great images of our Kruger National Park vacation soon.

Ciao Mehmet. Another fascinating macro with amazing light and colours. Exciting BG as usual.
A very nice view of this beautiful shell showing great sharpness and beautiful colours. It would be a treat to see this live with the eye erect and in a jumping motion!
TFS and best wishes, Ulla

Mehmet bey selamlar,
Güzel bir sanat eseri ...
Başarılı bir pozlama ve nefis güzellikte bir fotograf.
Keskin detaylar ve renkler çok güzel yansıtılmış.
A lovely photograph showing this beautiful shell!
Pattern, colours are so well reproduced, good texture too...
I have photographed a few shells myself so I know it is quite difficult to get results like this!

Interesantes colores y un evidente estilo "matatur" jeje.
Algo de desenfoque en algunas zonas.
Bonito trabajo. Saludos Mehmet: Josep Ignasi.
Sorry, this visit is much too long overdue. I've been enjoying your absolute fabulous
shell collection since it started, but for some crazy reason I just never did what I had
to or wanted to do and that is to express my appreciation. However, finally I am here.
You can rightfully claim the title as the #1 shell specialist photographer here on the
TrekNature site. Thus far every single image of the 77 photos in your portfolio are
shells and each one tries to be better looking and more attractive than the other.
Looking through your portfolio I realised that you have perfected your technique and
probably one cannot call it an art anymore, but a science. Faultless lighting control,
precise DOF to capture every bit of detail, excellent colour rendition, wonderful and
mindful compositions, are all trademarks of your immaculate modus operandi. Your
contributions have made this site so much the richer in content and the value of your
notes is priceless. Great stuff MF.
Well done and TFS.
PS. My apologies. I made the crucial error of re-editing my critique after my last smiley
was used. Not thinking or remembering about the smiley eating monster I quickly
rectified a spelling mistake and the moment I saved it the system ate my smiley.
Now I cannot even edit it tomorrow and add a smiley anymore. It really sucks big time.
