Hello Noel. What an amazing ambiance and a spectacular sunset (or sunrise?) It's like a fire is getting closer, behind those hills. This is a dramatic scene and a poetic moment. Impeccable light management and colour balance. Wonderful result, made of a dream world. Best Regards. Chris

Hi dear Noel. This is certainly an image to capture the attention of the beholder. In my opinion, you have created the perfect frame, with this inspiring sculpture at the front of the image, hiding part of the background and taking most of the attention. This looks as a unique and enchanting environment and you are so lucky to be able to visit it as often as you like. I love the colours and the contrast. The blue colour of the sky looks like the one in my country. Great shot. Tfs and take care. Best Regards Chris.

Hello dear Noel. I really like your photo from all aspects. Great POV, contrast and colour balance. The huge € symbol provides a great impact to this image. Concerning Euro, I have controversial feelings, thinking of the current financial situation in my country. I rather hate it, but...... I don't really know. It takes a long discussion to decide. I hope the vision of E.U. to be realized someday. I wish you all the best. Keep in touch. Chris.

Hello dear Noel. This is a very impressive, majestic and imposing complex of buildings, (but also a little creepy to be honest), with such a great past. I love the POV and the light management. This is a site and an architectural composition quite unfamiliar for my country. (Here the buildings are of very different aesthetics - and that's making your photo ever more enchanting to my eyes). Great work. P.S. Thank you very much for all your kind critiques and the time you have spent beholding my photos. You live in a country with such a different ambiance from my country, making it really tempting for me to visit (but for now it's almost impossible). Thank you again for supporting my work. Keep in touch. Best Regards from Greece, West Peloponnese. Chris

Hello dear friend. I am touched by your comments on Greek people and I love you photo. I don't know if you are familiar with the meaning of the word written on this wall, so, I will translate it. This word (written in greek - with latin "s" at the end) means "chaos". I think this is a word universally known and certainly most appropriate to describe the current situation in my country. Take care and best regards from Greece.[+]

Hello dear John. I am glad that you have posted this beautiful image. It certainly worth the effort. This a lovely view of this magnificent mansion. Your point of view is just perfect, accentuating the superb aesthetics of the building. With that closer look, is seems even more enchanting. I also love the beautiful bridge leading to the castle and the small pond, they look very picturesque. You give great detail in your photo, with great colours, also. Splendid work. P.S. I want to thank you for your beautiful comments on my images. Concerning your last comment, I want to tell you that what you see in the sea is not the snow, it is just the sunlight reflecting on the water. Take care and keep posting great photos. Best Regards from Greece Christos.

Hello dear Benny. I like your photo and your theme very much. I am Greek and I am touched by your words. I am very glad to know that you have this positive opinion about the people of my country. I hope to be many European citizens to share the shame opinion with you. I put all the blame to politicians and all former governments about the current situation in my country. There is corruption in politicians that have a real talent in manipulating a part of the people (mostly those of low education). I agree with you, last week's elections have brought a bit of hope. I hope for the best for my country and all Europe. Thank you for sharing your photo and your thoughts. Take care and have positive thinking. We all need it these days. Best Regards from Greece. Christos.[+]

Hello dear John. This is a great building with great history. I like very much the architectural lines and the external colours and decorations of walls. Your POV is giving an impressive perspective to the castle, along with the reflection on the wet pavement. Lovely colours and shades. Well done. Best Regards. Christos. p.s. I would also like to see a closer photo of the building, with more details of the external walls.[+]

Καλησπέρα Ουρανία. Πολύ ωραία εικόνα του Παρθενώνα. Το σημείο λήψης δίνει ιδιαίτερη προοπτική και τονίζει άψογα την αρχιτεκτονική αρτιότητα και το μεγαλείο ενός από τα σημαντικότερα μνημεία της ανθρωπότητας. Τα σχόλιά σου συμπληρώνουν άψογα την φωτογραφία σου και μας βάζουν όλους σε σκέψεις για το μέλλον των σύγχρονων κοινωνιών - λαών και εθνοτήτων. Είναι αλήθεια ότι εγώ είμαι πεσιμιστής σχετικά με το μέλλον μετά από ότι έχει συμβεί το 2014 και τώρα στο Παρίσι. Ποιά είναι η εξέλιξη του ανθρώπου σε πνευματικό επίπεδο και ποιές είναι σήμερα οι αρχές της ανθρώπινης ύπαρξης, 2500 χρόνια μετά από την εποχή του Παρθενώνα...;;;(ρητορικό ερώτημα) Να είσαι καλά και περιμένω και άλλες εικόνες από την Αθήνα. Καλό βράδυ. Χρήστος

Καλησπέρα Κωνσταντίνε. Μου αρέσει πολύ το σημερινό σου θέμα. Θεωρώ τους "street artists" πραγματικά ταλαντούχους καλλιτέχνες. Εδώ το άσχημο αυτό κουτί μεταμορφώθηκε μοναδικά με αυτή την όμορφη εικαστική παρέμβαση. Η εικόνα φαντάζει ακόμα πιο ελκυστική στο χιονισμένο τοπίο. Πολύ σωστό σημείο λήψης και όμορφα χρώματα. Καλό βράδυ και να είσαι καλά. Χρήστος.
