About the Image(s)

I have taken this photo in Antalya/Turkey. This is the most famous beach there which is called Konyaalty. The weather was great and people were enjoying their time the most, especially the couple on the seats who decided to have their meal in this beautiful place.
the settings were: 1/60sec. f/8 18mm , ISO: 200

Hassan, very peaceful mood image still in cold weather given by the fact that everybody is well dressed and with jackets. It is late afternoon by the long shadows. Obviously the sitting woman became aware of you and is looking your way. Nobody is wearing a bathing suit. It must be difficult to walk barefoot on this beach due to the nature of the ground. There is no sand but just gravel/shells/little stones. The couple in the foreground is the main subject, and the people in the background complement the image and give dimension to the image. The haze in the background gives some mystery to it. I added some light to the shadows and now there is more detail on the lady's face, and I made the horizon line straight.   Posted: 06/08/2021 08:39:09

Hassan, I think this is image has a serene mood about it which tells a nice story. You did a nice job of combining the story with the pastel colors and long shadows. I personally favor concentrating, as much as possible, the subject so I would prefer cropping the L side and foreground somewhat eliminating some nonde area and further emphasizing the couple, beach people and closer mountains.   Posted: 06/13/2021 14:30:28

As Les commented, there is a mood presented with the mountains and cloudy background. Relaxing for sure. The story I see is people are attracted to the beach no matter the weather and temps. While keeping the background I think the image would have benefitted by stepping up for a closer view of the couple.   Posted: 06/15/2021 07:34:34

Hassan.... good side lighting which is further emphasized by the long shadows. I like the depth of the composition with a foreground subject, middle layer of beach and background layer of the ragged mountains and the clouds. Nice color palette with harmonizing blues and greys. The woman's red hair adds an unexpected touch of color and draws attention to the subject who is camera aware. Good story and capture.   Posted: 06/16/2021 10:56:26

What a beautiful light in the mountains in the background. But you have chosen to take the people who enjoy the beautiful weather as your subject. Both options are possible. Isaac's editing makes the sunlight even better.   Posted: 06/21/2021 12:26:36

I like how your made your main focus the couple eating by themselves in such a magnificent setting. My eyes were drawn in by how you composed the photo with the couple off to the right along with the long shadows that cut diagonally through the beach almost like an arrow pointing the way. It looks like a place that I would like to visit! Isaac's edits make the image even better. B   Posted: 06/21/2021 19:42:30
