I like the perspective, Nezih but a slight crop from the top would remove the modern strip light and wiring. The colour v2 is very grainy but this grain adds so well to the 'feel' of the mono v1.

I much prefer V1, Nezih. Once again the suitability for the subject of the monochrome injects a timeless feel to the atmosphere - except for the point that Dave makes above regarding the strip light.

I like both, the colour in V2 is quiet and subdued. But V1 throws the background further back, concentrates on the man. Good composition/crop, a tall L-shape.

Subject matter is better suited for mono. Agree about the crop. Peter.

Thank you! I thought it was the Koran, but could be a prayer book of some sort, I cannot read arabic script.

A very well observed, composed, exposed and captured image with a wonderful calming aura about it. The monochrome working especially well Nezih.

A super set of variants, Nezih, v1 for me, and the grittiness of the processing works well.
Nice one.

You have captured this serene gentleman in contemplation so well. I love the crop of him at the side of the frame. For me, it works beautifully in mono. Smile
