Yes, yes, yes!!! I fully agree with your plans Sebnem! And I hope you, Ekrem and Cem will find time to post to TN from time to time! Very good start in New Year! You know - in Poland we've got superstition that what one did in New Years Day will do all year long :-) So you MUST take new pictures all year ;-) Thank you for this post my friend!!!

Hello Sebnem,
Looks like you had a pleasant start into 2006!
Nice textures of clouds and many birds waiting for you to put them on the internet.
Looking forward to seeing them.

Hello Sebnem, lovely colours and I really like the birds flying into the scene. It's a great view my only critisism would be to straighten up the horizon. Apart from that minor nit, it's lovely.

Hi Sebnam,
My favorite type of photo! Seascapes at sunrise or sunset! I am guessing this is a sunset. Beautiful warm colors in the sky.
Hoping you post many pics in 2006.

Wonderful sunset with birds inflight Sebnem. Well composed with great color. I like the suns reflection running through the sea up onto the shoreline. Well done!
Thank You.

Just beautiful! So detailed, nice colors! I really love the birds, especially the big ones.....

Hello Şebnem!
Very nice seascape.POV,warm colors and composition are wonderful.Thanks for posting.

Nice composition good warm colours, but it would have been much better to rotate it 2 degrees left to get the sea straight.
Well done

Hi Sebnem!
I like sky's photos very much (have some at TE). The rocks, the birds with the orange sky is a wonderful composition. Note very good too.

Very beautiful! Excellent moment and colors captured, Sebnem...

What a wonderful burst of energy, life and hope for the new year, Sebnem.

Details, colors, lighting, and POV are excellent in this lovely composition.

Hi Sebnem!

Nice to see new picture from you. Nice sunset picture. Focus and exposure are good. My only comment is your horizon. It's not leveled. I am surprise from an engineer ;o).
But the warm feeling of the seascape is there. Good work and TFS.

Sebnem bonjour, splendide coucher de soleil parfaitement mis en valeur avec le vol de ces mouettes à l'horizon. Tableau trés vivant, bravo, Didier.

Hi Sebnem
A lovely scene, rich colours, and the the birds add interst and life to the landscape.
Just watch the horizon - water sould always be level - easy to tilt and correct in PS.
I have shot >2000 pictures already with the D200, some I think is quite nice. I will post one, as soon as I have worked thru my "debt" in comments here.

Hello Sebnem, indeed a lovely warm sunset with the added bonus of silhouette birds in-flight. This is very good work, keep them coming.

Beautiful evening sunset. I know it seems a little late but I hope that you have a Happy New Year. :)
