Thumbs up in search of kaba in pictures

i'd been looking for some high resolution professional quality pictures of the kaba and have come up short. so i recently typed in the word in the search box of the photographers site i personally belong to. salih guler, a turkish photographers gallery came up. no kaba here but some of his work is so good that i just had to share it! anyone who enjoys beautiful pictures shall enjoy this -

Many Thanks Puck for sharing such wonderful pictures. Some of the works are simply brilliant.

Do you give permissions to download pictures to PC?

hi miraz,
they are not mine! i can only dream of taking such wonderful pictures one day. as for downloading them, i am sure the photographer would not mind your downloading them for personal pleasure. it's not that you are depriving him of anything.

if i took these, i'd be honored if someone wanted to download my works.

i know the thread title mentions Kaaba and i don't want to sound irreverent.. but the picture of the monkey really appealed to me!

Almost every section has some wonderful works. The fine touches are unique in some pictures. I liked the works in the monochrome system, they are one of the best works I have seen in black and white. Although I haven't seen many works before.

Correct me if I am wrong, I think you are a moderator of the photo.net forum and that's why I asked about the permission.

i am not a moderator in photo.net i am afraid. i am an ocassional moderator on another site but that caters for amateur club photographers within uk. photonet is on a different league!

if you are really intent upon getting his permission, let me know i shall find out his email or other contact details for you.

Murad brother, photography is a form of art. Look at those pictures and their fine tuning not the subject in a crude way, I am sure you will find them interesting.

And about the muslim name, many people are not practicing muslims and they find it OK to create similar form of arts.

Thanks Puck for your clarification. I am seriously thinking about downloading some of the pictures and might be framing one or two.

If it's a standard practice that anyone can download them and use for non-commercial purpose, I don't want to give you the pain to find his e-mail address.

And I really appreciate your generous gesture.

hey murad,
he is turkish and based on the name i would assume that he is perhaps culturally muslim. i had a look at his gallery again and found exactly what you were referring to. however, i'd personally say that these are very dreamy representations of the body. apart from one picture in that selection, i find all the rest to be tasteful and flattering.
i am sorry if any of these shocked you. however, i really hadn't noticed them in a shocking light before you mentioned it, and even after close inspection, they don't appear nasty to my eyes. like miraz, i find the monochromes to be rather brilliant and focused on them mainly.

this guy appears to be a semi-pro to me. perhaps he is even a pro by now since the camera used is a nikon d2x. i noticed a ukranian photo magazine editors comment on his portfolio. the standard practice is for magazines to pay for published pictures. so i am assuming that salih is still a semi-pro. with that in mind, i would assume that downloading for non-commercial use is fine.

please do note that he would only put up a low resolution image on a gallery like this. the backup high resolution images would be on his computer somewhere. if you wanted a really good quality print, you will need them and perhaps his permission. so again, going by what you said, i think it should be quite alright to save them for personal pleasure.

i am not on his league and dare say that i have the talent to emulate him ever! i've only ever sold two pictures but they were framed and displayed at a local cafe. for the few online galleries i maintain, if anyone liked any of my pictures and wanted to download them, i'd feel honoured and would perhaps even send them a free professional print at my own cost!

my offer stands though if you did want his details!
take care
puck

Thanks puck. I will try to make couple of prints and frame them. If I find the resolution is not good enough to appreciate the fine work, I will defnitely come back to you for the contact details.

I have found some of your pictures quite interesting. I am a monochrome fan. In my eyes the best picture in your portfolio is the following one.

thanks for liking it. that is infact one of the two pictures that i have sold to a local assembly member!

i get a slight discount if ordering bulk prints from a pro printing firm in scotland. next batch shall get done in december and since you liked it so much, i shall be happy to send you one as a gift.

i exclusively shoot black and white and for that matter with very old (in most cases older than me) equipment. the negetives get developed by a friend of mine although they are not turned into prints. i then scan the negetives at home. those that appear a little better than the rest get scanned professionally or developed into prints. it's be fair to say that on average i get one frame out of 24 or 36 that are worth keeping! there are around 30 rolls to scan as i speak..

Puck, I am really touched by your offer.

I don't know how much is the true cost (considering the level of passion and hard work associated with it), but I will be happy to pay for a good piece of work if I can afford that.

I am not sure whether it will serve your purpose. Here's a link containing the landmark images around the world.

It has couple of images of holy Kaaba.
