Terrific shot, Nezih. The enigmatic figure really makes it.
Best wishes,

Andrew

A very thoughtful image. The gravestones look very ancient, no-one can read their inscriptions now. I remember a very early, marble Byzantine memorial built into the church wall, by the doorway. I like the tone and texture here. The vignetting adds gravitas.

Best wishes,

Caught the mood so well like the way you have framed it with the branches either side and used the foreground so well.
Well thought out and sympathically captured the scene
All the best

Nice composition, good conversion. I also like the square crop.
