Very beautiful and magnanimous picture of great IRI. Just wonderful and so classic, serene and peaceful.
I don't profess to know much if anything about the culture of Iran or its people, but just looking at the photo from a photographers point of view, I think that it is an excellent photo and especially in B&W ... has just emphasized the starkness of the land in this particular photo. The cloud formation and the ruins including the figure who ever it might be makes for a good composition. But thats just my 2 cents worth of info.
Why did you have to show the Hizbolli veiled woman who represents a small fraction of Iranian women? Nice picture except the witch in black ruined the picture.
Cielo y tierra, con la mano del hombre, se juntan para ofrecernos una imagen llena de misterio. Felicidades al fotógrafo por esta maravillosa foto y enseñarnos un poco de este bello país.
An outstanding black/and white photograph. The caped figure seems almost 3D in its effect. The old ruined castle just stands out clearly against the beautiful sky. The top story, In the middle of the frame, shows a spot of light through a hole or a small window. Altogether an eye catching picture. j.e.s.
certainly a sensation of timelessness, and desolation - strong shot captured there, where b+w emphasises once again
La Convicción Es La Verdad Del Sueño. Hace Suya La Realidad Del Soñador. Bajo La Firmeza En La Espera. Por Historia De Verdades Ocultas. Qué Abundancia De Belleza... Exitos!
Magnificent photography. Superb performance picture. Black and white, on photography tell the story of the same. Not even need to add anything more. Only even magnificent.
It would be unusual for these ruins to be not haunted by antique fantoms._ Silence is a gateway into the thoughts of anonymous._ The sleep and the dream is absolutely necesary , so is the human brain - need comtinuity..
Bahareh Mohamadian — 'Zavareh' Photo of the Day. A quiet, reflective photograph. There is not much color in the scene, apart from sky; the monochrome contrast accentuated by filtering. The woman's expression is also muted, and modest. An asymmetrical composition, the fleeting darkness at left is balanced by the background ruin and sky. —GaryConn
@muntasir abdo zaroug she :D Bahareh is a girl name
Because it is part of the culture nevertheless and calling her a witch shows your hatred towards something that's part of the culture. Nothing wrong with this picture.
@Garrick Meyers Thank you so much .. no . its not HDR
@Armin NasirianIt is NOT A part of our culture. It is a part of a small minority of Hizbollis that have hijacked Iran. This is an ancient ruin - a PRE-ISLAMIC site. This is part of our culture. Our New Years (Nowruz) is part of our culture. These Hizbolli witches are NOT a part of Iranian culture. They are a part of the small minority of terrorists that have ruined and destroyed Iran.
@Sassan Darian You're just disgusting.
@Sassan Darian @Armin Nasirian Wow...I'm not saying I disagree with you in the sense that there is a foundational culture that existed pre-Islamic times that constituted what many would describe as Iran's riches, but calling a woman who you don't know a witch (regardless if she is Islamic or not) is just disrespectful.
