|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|Landscapes of my Turkey trip:|
Of course you have seen on TN World Heritage Site Pamukkale (see "Map") before, its travertine terraces of carbonate minerals left by the flowing water saturated with them. With this picture I wanted to brag a little and show you what kind of weather I had to endure during my bicycle periple :-( On the horizon you notice ruins of Hierapolis, a Roman health resort for the rich. Romans were irresistibly attracted to hot springs.
The geological phenomenon is rare. Some constant seeping of hot and Carbon dioxide rich water through limestone deposits is the basis of it. The colors are due to cyanobacteria or monocellular algae, the sun bleaches the dry surface.

Very interesting Landscape, TFS!

Very attractive POV and scene at whole. Especially I like contrast between main subject and sky. Excellent composition and use of lights and darks. Sharpness across the frame is also impressive. Best wishes and TFS.

Dieses Bild gefällt mir sehr,da Du eine gar ungewöhnliche Perpektive gewählt hast. Die hellen Farben sind sehr gut gemeistert. Fast unreal, wie von einbem symbolistische Künstler gemalt. Der Hintergrund erinnert mich an Werke aus der Boecklin-Zeit.
Gehört natürlich zu meinen Favoriten
How strange that only three people gave a critique on this wonderful photo. You don't get to see this kind of lanscape often. It looks similar to the travertine terraces you'll find in Yellowstone park.
I like the contrast of the bright white travertine with the very dark ominous sky and I like the interesting texture in the FG. As for a composition, it would have been nice if you used this water way more and had it run farther up the photo. Also when you do decided to make the sky darker, be sure to really zoom in along the edges. There is an obvious mark left around the trees.
