Cok guzel bir portre, tebrik ederim. Puanlari gorunce ayrica gurur duydum. 7/7!
very nice portrait Such a story teller portrait...very nice set-up and composing...baogiang
Mehmet I'm glad to see you are adding more portraits to your portfolio you have a great eye for it, and this is an excellent choice. I love the colors of the costume and the texture of the wood in his hand and the very simple chair. Most of all i love his expression of pride mixed with humility. Great portrait Mehmet
This is a wonderful portrait but does appear somewhat overexposed on my monitor (23" Cinema Display). I also viewed it on one of our PCs (also an LCD monitor) and it is still a bit overexposed. Minor adjustments in PS would fix this and make the colors stand out even more. Otherwise, a magnificent photo of a hero. Kat
a GREAT shot of a GREAT Hero, very fine composition, good lighting and a balanced exposure...congrats Mehmet rabinder
Excellent portrait,mehmet.His eyes and body language show his mettle.
Mehmet, I'm very sorry if the info I gave you regarding the possible overexposure was incorrect. I checked again on one of our PC laptops with an LCD monitor and again on my Apple Cinema Display and also a Dell PC (desktop) with an LCD monitor, all of which have been recently calibrated. I was trying to give helpful feedback, not to in any way criticize your wonderful portrait, and I apologize if my intentions were misunderstood. I will be more cautious before I give technical input which I am not qualified to give. Kathy
What an angle, you got the light just right to focus on him. Great job.

This is a wonderful tribute. How did you happen upon such a great opportunity?
In a perfect world where we would be interested in more sincere and constructive inputs, I would have to agree with Cathy Brown on this image being slightly over exposed. It is evident in the skin tones and the garment colors. But the fact is that I'm not sure if it could have been captured much better than already had been. I think it's just the nature of the lighting here probably with no softener, modifier or difusers. We try to do best under circumstances and hope that the opportunity will present itself better next time. Turky is no short of local and national heros and thank you for bringing them to us. Regards.
Wonderful Great shot of a fierce warrior. You can see his heart of a lion through his eyes. Nice colors and composition. May he never have to see war again... Peace, Tony
Fantastic portrait mehmet!!!!!

Mahalli kiyafetler icerisinde cok guzel bir portre, tebrikler...
Looks like a stern heroic general. The aura of light falling on him is a good emphasize on his personality. A very good portrait, Mehmet.

really excellent work, incredible colours
Hero Superb portrait!
Technically, as indicated by 2 other comments, there is just a tad amount of clippping. If highlights were brought down to approx 250 then the technical aspect of your great hero's photo would be right on.
great, i like colors and his expression
Happy New Year and all the best for you and your family.
Thant you for your comment...That is a rosary ...regards.
Mehmet, fantastic use of light with a fabulous presentation. What is the red thing in his hand? Warm regards.
... What more can I say?... Simply perfect...
Hero This Hero fought for Turkish independence war in the west side of Anatolia.We call them (EFE).He wears his traditional uniform on the celebration of the independence day.This is honor for him. Also we are proud of them.
