epey bir ayrı kaldınız siteden; özletmiştiniz. döndüğünüze çok sevindim. sanal alemde de olsa sizinle görüşmekten pek mutluyum. hele böyle ustaca çekilmiş yakın plan fotoğraflarınızı izlemek ve onlardan bir şeyler öğrenmek daha da bir güzel. yeşilimsi tonlardaki bu güzel deniz kabuğunu, keskin detaylar, usta ışık kullanımı ile sunmuşsunuz. Alıştığımız siyah geri plan burada da çok güzel olmuş. elinize sağlık. arayı fazla uzatmayın dileğiyle; saygı ve selamlarımla iyi geceler dilerim hocam.
Eskiden sadece denizkabuğu derdik, sayenizde bir İzmirli olarak güzel şeyler öğreneceğim. Merak ettim, koleksiyonunuz mu var, yoksa gördükçe mi çekiyorsunuz?
Elinize sağlık Mehmet bey, selamlar, saygılar

I've missed you! It's so good to see another of your beautiful shells. The shape, colors, swirls and patterns of this are lovely. Exquisite details and wonderful colors - I love the shades of green. The black background shows it off perfectly.
Dear Mr. Mehmet! is a pleasure to see again one of your shells captured perfetly! This time a esmerald and enigmatig jewel of nature. Your works is really impressive, great light, delicate forms and colors really worthy of applause. But now that I realize you are doing this with a "Sanyo Xacti" ... is a video camera, eh? This really is awesome! congratulations, as always, is an excellent job. TFS, regards, Jesús

It is a pleasure to see your unique subjects once again, Mehmet.
Hope you have completed the work that kept you away to your best satisfaction. So welcome back!
This beautiful Shell is aptly named. As usual with your great dexterity in handling your subjects, you have created a marvellous image of this beauty from the deeps.
Without least exaggeration, all the nuances of colours and details are beautifully captured here.
Keep posting and all the best.

Ciao Mehemet. Refined elegant shot with good detaisl and amazing tone's contrast. Superb colours against the black BG.
Welcome back! I hope the work on your cottage has not caused too much physical strain!
This is a fine portrait, up to your usual high standard, of this little Top Shell, the POV showing the pattern of green an white in a fine way. Green seems to be an unusual colour in molluscs, or is it because emeralds are rare in Ottoman turbans? :))
Thanks and have a good weekend,

It is great to see a posting from you. Wonderful detail captured on the patterns and colours of this beautiful shell. It has a moodiness that surrounds it, why I do not know, but that is what I see, maybe it is the darker than usual colours of the shell. I am used to the pink, pearl and lighter colours on your subjects, but it does not take away any of your subject's beauty. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

Mehmet bey merhaba,
Diğer kabuklardan ayrılan renk özelliğiyle de nefis bir fotoğraf olmuş, bu tür fotoğraflarda sanırım siyah fon çok iyi bir tercih.
Tebrikler hocam, sevgilerimle..

What a nice hobby you have Mehmet! I have the same desire to the shells from my childhood but unfortunately i don't have a chance to find so much different types from The Black sea shores! This Ottoman turban looked shell is great to find with that beautiful emerald toned colors and amazing shapes, and indeed look a like a jewel encrusted Ottoman turban on an Ottoman sultan! i always dreamed to live a coast of an ocean to find these beautiful shells. What do you think about the Turkish sea shores to find a vast selection of the shells? and the point that i am curious about is why don't you take photos of these beauties from the spot where did you find them on that gold sandy shores!

a fantastic macro shot of the Emerald Top-shell, outstanding sharpness and mavellous colours, another masterpiece from you, very well done.
Thanks for welcome to TN.
This photo as, are the rest of your photos, is superb - you do have a bit of an interest in shells (I suspect a professional one?). Great lighting colour and presentation.

It is a greenish turquoise colour which certainly makes it stand out well against your usual backdrop. An educator uses similar backdrops so as not to confuse students. Good notion.

Stunning colours for a snail. Love your presentation (the visual and the note), as I really like your entire shell photo collection.
Few days ago my granddaughter (6 years old) and me have watched your gallery. We have seen all your shots. She (as well as me) was amazed. This one is also exceptional. Colouration, shapes, texture are reflected outstandingly. POV, composition, illumination are perfect. Bravo and thanks for your work. Happy New Year and all the best to you and your family.

The macro point of view is showing with precision the details and colors of the emerald-top-shell. The black background id putiing in evidence the shell. The surrounding light is enhancing the colors. have a nice day.
