Wow!! Hi Hamid! It really looks like an explosion in the water especially in a thumbnail view!! Very nice rock..sorry..salt-formation! It is really an interesting place! TfS

Just seeing the concentration of salt in the rock... I'm not surprised there is no fish here.. Even when i eat one, there is not the same quantlty of salt :o)

That rock is fascinating by his shape. From the thumbnail i believe it was some small explosion on water like we can see during military practice. The white part help to believe it of course!
Good catch!

Very interesting subject to shoot. Nature never ceases to amaze me with it's beautiful colors and forms.

Two things I would do here:

Fix the horizon tilt.
Boost the colors, especially in the rock thing

Yes, I agree. The horizon line is off and could be 1/3 more in the top of the frame.
Great photo though...
A violent landscape.

Magnificenttt and informative thank you for sharing

This was the first photo I have seen in a while that fooled me as to what it was. I thought it was an underwater explosion. I was very surprised when I opened the thumbnail for a closer view. Very interesting body of water. There is a place similar in the US called the Great Salt lake in Utah. There are no rock islands like this though. TFS

Great capture Hamid, I thought it was an explosion in the water too looking at the thumbnail. Nice composition and detail. TFS


Wow, when I first looked at it in thumbnail form, I though it was some kind of explosion. Colors are very nice and the white color contrasts very well with the blues.

What a great lovely structure inside that lake. I love your image with that reflection. The horizon little bit tilted to the right, some epsilon!

Wow factor - excellent. Compositiuon is also strong and the lighting good. Well done

This is an excellent shot. I first thought its an explosion under water.Good angle.Very nice- Vikram

Absolutly amazing, crisp, clear, nice DOF, sharp focus. wonderful colors.

Hi Hamid,

Nice one. I like the simple composition of this interesting object. It does looks a bit pale as there are no dark tones in the image. Did a workshop to correct this, What do you think of it?


Very interesting rock, but put too centrally in a photo. I did workshop, I hope that my look will appeal to you.(translator)

İnteresting picture but good :)


Thank you for sharing.

This is most beautiful than atom bomb. Great picture Hamit. Selamlar from istanbul.


very good view and very nice composition.
Thanks for sharing.

When I saw the thumbnail in this one, it looked like a Mushroom cloud. Simple compositions with a strong subject seem to be your strength. Nice clear light on this one too.

Nice shot taken with good details. In the thumbnail, it looks like an underwater explosion........

Thanks for sharing.

Hello Hamid!
Nice photo, the skyline could be more right but photo are very good!
Well Done!


What a great observation.
From the thumbnail it looks like an explosion from a detonated bomb underneath the surface.

I would just level it a bit.

Lovely colours.
