Hi Suzy,
A nice original creation of this highly PP work.
A real work of art created from a sihouette of a tree with a sunset cast at the BG and a lantern.
A good and an eye-catching presentation!
Well done.

Hello Suzy,
Excellent POV good colours great reflections on the water all round good shot.


Good morning Suzy,
A superb artwork. Selahattin will be mighty pleased. Quite impressive pp work. I have not tried creating reflection via pp, and this certainly inspired me to experiment. A soothing image with intensely attratictive colors. Well done and regards my dear.

Hi Suzy,
It's great to see your shots again here! You presented us a fine artwork again, perfect idea to duplicate the silhouette of the tree and highlighting the reflections as well. Proper framing, moody composition. TFS!
Best wishes,

Good work,Suzy.Beautiful colours . The silhouette of the tree looks slightly unnatural,cos of the symmetry.And another mild distraction is the placement of one of the hurricane lanterns ,in the bottom left side. It looks as if a portion of the lamppost itself broke apart, but somehow its still held together !. Except for this minor "glitch", this is a beautiful work. Keep posting more :)

Have a NiceDay :)

ciao lebanon girl!
A special lebanon effect and good work!
I must admit you have a good fantasy!
Well made work and good in refelction
well worked and colours captured

Hi Suzy...
Beautiful work with nice colors, composition...

Hi Suzy,

Nice gift for your friend. nice art done .the output result is a great one. nice sunset photo and I liked the placement of the larntern. thanks for sharing.


Hey my dear lebanon lady,

ehehehe I must correct someone's critique...you don't have good fantasy, you have AMAZING fantasy. I should know it by now ;) Anyway, good too see your work again. It's pretty boring around here without your 'Suzy style' images, my dear. ;) And believe me, I like your style.

OK...time to go down to business. I see you decided to experiment with mirror effect this time. Good...I like the idea and I like the result. It gives this sense of illusion - what is reality and what is not?...lovely colours of the sunset and wonderful silhouettes of the tree. Good idea to include that lamp in the composition.

Have a great day and see ya later! You know...hard to get rid off ;);););)

hi Suzy nice work with moody colors ...
bravo ... regards Harout.

Hi Suzy,
Great capture with nice warm colors. I like the silhouetted tree and lamp post. The PP work is very good. I love the reflections here. A wonderful tribute to a talented artist.
Nice work.

What a symbolic post for dedication to such a wonderful person.No doubt Selahttin is an icon here at TL.he is a source of energy and guidence for begginers and new comer.A generous person who is always forthcoming in his critiques,workshops and comments.A person with an individual and unique style in photography and frankly I call it Tanburi school of thought in composition and presentation.No doubt he desrve that we refer this style with his name and association.Your choice of subjects are wonderful a tree which is a shelter for the people an icon for students,the lights and reflections all have verry well chosen to summerise the personality through the eyes of an artist and photographer.I congratulate you for such a wonderful post dedicated to a person of this stature.This post will remain with me as one of my fav and keep reminding me the way a great artist praise another great artist.TFS

Hello Suzy

Wonderful PP work. This image looks very much like fantasy. I am waiting for a ferry to fly around the tree. Excellent work.

Hi Suzy,
Stunning colours and imaginative PP work, beautiful thought provoking piece in both words and picture. TFS

Hi Suzy,

A very original work dedicated to our friend, Selahattin, the lucky person!
Impressive reflection of the solo tree and the sillhouette effect brings great charm to this picture. A very eye-catching work. the sharpness and the POV is simply ideal. To keep the lantern on the side was a cvery good decision. Everything seems to be on the right place. Wonderfully composed!

Again, cheers for Selahattin!

Very nice Suzy, the reflections look awesome. It's been nicely enhanced by your excellent PP work too. Such an array of tones and colours, and the tree seems to make a perfect silhouette. Well done with this one, impressive job.


Great Suzy,
I can't believe my eyes... incredible...
Fantastic shot. I read all critics and shared Stasa's opinions.... really you have amazing fantasies
Creative, artistic and breathtaking. I loved double mirror effect,asymmetric cloning and color transitions...

dear Suzy,
in this illusionary space, maybe I lose my way,
and endlessly I walk about on the ground, in the air and in the water...
then the time melts in silhouettes,
and the space also melts in lights,
only bear sensation and imagination are still floating in this timeless and spaceless air.
thank you,

hi dear suzy

Bonjour Suzy
"Croissez et multipliez", c'est ce que dit la Bible...Cette symétrie verticale puis horizontale, doublée, triplée, multipliée en ombres plus ou mois denses, mêle aux couleurs incandescentes des dégradés de gris qui s'égrènent comme des arpèges.Mais l'écho-reflet du lampadaire se brise dans l'eau, comme si cette LUMIERE-là avait vascillé.N'était-ce pas le signal prémonitoire d'un rêve déjà brisé lui aussi ?
All the Best for you,dear Suzy

hu suzy! great composition and nice pp work! nice silhouette and gradient colors
thanks for sharing
