The clock-tower of Amasya (amasya) was built by the governor Ziya Pasha in 1865.

Thank you all folks for the appreciation of my "Beautiful Como".

A wonderful clock tower so well maintained after 148 years!
Although the natural colours are lovely, I do like the mono convertion also.

Seems like a small western world clock building on an India design column. Makes one stop and wonder. All three images are VERY worthy. TG

V1 is my favorite, Monsieur Nezih! I must be honest, those mountains in the background caught my eye immediately. They are absolutely wonderful! Those colors and the texture on the top portion...Is that granite?? I loved them!

Stone, brick and wood, with the brick dominating. The central section harks back to imperial antiquity, I think; in any case the tower is an usual blend of styles in a dramatic setting. I bet it was meant with true 1860s psychology as a watch-tower too!
Very well taken studies, Nezih; I have a particular liking for the perspective in V3.

Bill

I go for V3, traffic cones and all (Wink ). It's the bigger picture, the perspective makes the mountains and sky more important.

v3 has a good perspective and lead in but the tower is just part of the scene. The perspective of v1 makes the tower so much more impressive but still retains the imposing mountain backdrop.
