Incredible shot of the arch Volkan.I recently tried taking a night shot of the arch, but nothing turned out like this. Keep up the good work! Jesse

Volkan Yuksel on September 4, 2008

Thank you much Jesse, it was really very remarkable to see the Arch in such beautiful evening. I noticed that I have some shots that look better to me than this. Eventually I am planning to share them as well. Best wishes from raining Chicago ;) Volkan

gerçekten çok çok güzel. dayanamadım oy verdim ve favorilerim arasına ilave ettim...

umarım Türkiyeye döndüğünüzdede güzel ülkemizin harika fotolarını çekmeye devam edersiniz. herşeyden önce bu ülke tanıtımı turizmi için önemli diye düşünüyorum. (???)

........ My (new) CoNtEsT ........

Greetings from Turkiye...


Volkan Yuksel on September 9, 2008

Serkan Ustadim, cok tesekkurler ilgine. Aslinda bu fotografta anitin 192 metrelik yuksekligi, agaclarin on plana yakin olmalari nedeniyle yeterince belli olmuyor. O yuzden baska bir fotograf daha yuklemeyi dusunuyorum. Esasen bu fotograftan once yukledigim Ay ve ondan onceki tarihi eser ile nispeten ilginc bir siralama olusturdugumu dusunuyorum ;)

Kismet olursa yilbasina dogru Tekrar Turkiye'mizden fotograf cekme sansim olacak. Chicagodan bol selamlar. Volkan

Oh wow, Volkan, not1word sent me here, and I'm glad he did, this is extravagantly extraordinarily, ...... marvelous! Words don't describe it, acually! Very best wishes to you!


not1word on October 16, 2008

This is an absolutely great shot. Well done!

Volkan Yuksel on October 17, 2008

Dear Sue Allen, than you very much. As Alway I am delighted to see your kind messages :) Also thanks to not1word for bringing this photo to your attention and for his/her comments.

To me this photo has another significance. This photo is the last one of my Arch series pictures. In case if you're interested here is the first Arch photo, the second that I think inspired people for making arches and again the one in this page is the third of the series ;)

Finally, here is the Panoramic view from the top of the Arch. Best wishes, Volkan

Volkan Yuksel on October 30, 2008

Thank you much Tony. Again because of your message I noticed another violation. This and this are my photos which were posted by one of the user above. Best wishes, Volkan

Hello Reigner, like I already mentioned in several occasions, nearby trees in this photo are misleading our perception about the size of this humongous monument. I hope you can experience it in person someday. BTW, congratulations on your winning photography and best wishes to Germany. Volkan

Great photo. The golden color makes this picture of the Arch unique. Was this done for effect, or is this the way it just came out from the night shot? Greetings from Denver, Colorado, but I lived in St. Louis for almost 40 years.

Volkan Yuksel on June 5, 2009

Dear Ryandenver, thanks for your message. Yes this is the natural reflection of the surrounding city light which are mostly high pressure sodium type. If you're interested, I just added new pictures from the area you can reach them using the Gateway Arch tag. Best wishes from Chicago, Volkan
