A glimpse of Syntagma Square in the centre of Athens. The yellow building in the background is the Greek Parliament and the luminous boat is the traditional greek christmas decoration.
The people are watching a concert by two wonderful pianists and tenors who enchanted all the passers by, enticing them to stop and listen. The concert was organized by the City of Athens on a big stage at the lower end of the square.
Thank you for visiting, a happy new year with love, health and joy to all!

This must have been a wonderful concert to have seen and listened to and you have captured this moment very well, the groups of people obviously intent on watching and listening to something which is enticingly out of the frame and off to the right!
You must certainly have a very steady hand to be able to take so sharp a picture at 1/10 second! The light was obviously artificial and quite poor but your exposure is perfect and the details and sharpness excellent. An excellent candid street shot!
Have a Wonderful New Year,

Hi dear Ourania
Ya almost sama sa in Japan. New year eve atmosphere is so well presented and can be shared quite enough. The best exposure can make finest image at all.
All the best and have a good last day of 2013! Takero

I hope you're enjoying your expedition to the mainland. This is a lovely night photograph. Congratulations on your steady hands. I had heard (read, actually) about the Christmas boats. It was either you or Danos who mentioned it. I was curious about them, thanks for showing a glimpse.

A Happy new year to you too, and to Greece. This is a fine way of ending 2013, with a photo of quiet enjoyment, a time to temporarily forget the problems and hope for a better future. The Christmas decorations help to keep the spirits up. You managed the artificial evening light with perfect sharpness and natural colours.
See you again soon,

Una scena festiva ben catturata. Splendidi decorazioni nella piazza, buona scelta il taglio verticale. Bravo!
Un caro saluto,

You're capturing well this scene by a good angle and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the many citizens who are watching and enjoying the City concert in square of Athens. It's a good situation with the parliament and the luminous light in Christmas decoration. It's a warm scenery in daily life and blue hour. And, the shadow projected to the square draws out an additional good effect.
