Bonjour, chère Gosia,
Nous plongeons avec délices sur la ville. Nous dominons et découvrons le style architectural si particulier.
Un cadrage très réussi.

Good Morning Gosia,
We are neighbours this morning.
I have only ever seen Athens from an aeroplane so this, for me, is wonderful. The roadway seems to cut deeply into the city as it guides us so effectively from the f/g to the very heart of Athens.
You have achieved a fine dof which gives a very natural flow.
The capture of some miniscule cars helps to define the sense of scale.
Have a lovely Sunday,

Hi! A photo of Athens that shows some urban & architectural details that we are not used to see and that is very interesting and attractive, inviting us for some exploration! Cheers, Neyvan

Bravo et amitié

condivido perfettamente quanto scrivi nelle note.
La città, come mostra chiaramente la tua foto sembra non avere mai fine e riempe completamente lo spazio per decine di chilometri quadrati riempiendo di colore e di piccoli tasselli colorati il fotogramma.
Peccato però che alla bellezza impareggiabile delle rovine dell'antichità non corrisponda altrettanta bellezza nell'aspetto cittadino che appare alquanto anonimo.
Un caro saluto.
Ciao e buona domenica

I absolutely love this well framed and compact view of Athens. We always complain about the aspect and the current situation of the city is often worrying but your picture makes my heart beat and confirms that Athens is the most beautiful ugly city in the world:) You've achieved excellent definition from a distant point of view, details, colours and shadows are marvellous. The light has retained its distinct quality throughout the vast cityscape. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great day,

A fascinating view over the city with row upon row of buildings stretching as far as the eye can see. The street nicely placed draws the viewer inexorably into the scene. So much to see and all in superb detail.

Une très belle vue sur la ville d'Athènes.
La densité des constructions est impressionnante.
federico (2523) 2014-02-02 3:09
hi gosia ,nice shot here, I like the use of zoom that gives a nice effect in this urban landscape, also the light is good quite warm
macjake (57062) 2014-02-02 4:32
now thats a view!
was this taken during the sunset, in the early evening?
fun to see the 1 long narrow strip of street in the middle with the large trees.
Athens sure looks big!!!
cool to see the architecture too, most of it looks outdted, but still fun to see.

Hello Gosia ,
Une vue impressionnante de la ville , avec cette avenue qui semble la couper comme un profond canyon .
Apurba20 (984) 2014-02-02 4:39
This is impressive, given the detailing.
The myriad shapes, the colors..are outstanding.
And there is a road which goes through.
jhm (139944) 2014-02-02 5:13
We get a wonderful view about Athens as big city.
Your picture is technical excellent taken.
You create depth and perspective through your excellent choice of your angle with the street in centre of the picture.
Colours and composition are pleasant to look at.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice Sunday,

Un point de vue remarquable sur la ville. Étonnant de constater la hauteur des immeubles. Il n'y a pas de gratte ciel ou si peux. Les rues semblent aussi bien étroites.Les détails sont d'une grande netteté.
Noel_Byrne (24840) 2014-02-02 7:06
You are right, the city seems endless! Now that's the definition of urban. A beautiful and unique view of this ancient city and that main street is a brilliant line leading through it. An amazing array of colors through the frame too.
Thanks as always
saxo042 (37578) 2014-02-02 7:19
This is indeed like a very well composed and colour coordinated painting, like a study in cubism. The dark band of the street across the picture is also good in the composition. Well seen!
Kamilutka (8095) 2014-02-02 8:15
super obrany punkt widzenia zagwarantowal tutaj bardzo dobra panorama. Swietny DOF i ostrosc na kazdym szczegole pozwala docenic walory tego widoku. Dobrze umijescowiona aleja przecinajaca "morze" budynkow dodaje glebi i urozmaica kompozycje.
Bardzo ladne cieple swiatlo i kolory.

Zdjęcie robi wrażenie, bo to mrowisko ludzkie jest fantastyczne, doskonała głębia i bardzo dobre światło, pięknie zrobione
ricardomattos (4574) 2014-02-02 8:51
Fantastic view of Athens. I like so much how the DOF worked here. Lovely colors and lightining too.
sabermonajati (9577) 2014-02-02 9:58
amazing view from city you captured.
williewhistler (14603) 2014-02-02 11:18
such a fascinating view of the city,the series of buildings in row after row produce a very attractive shot with a fine perspective.
Best regards Les.
carlo62 (33721) 2014-02-02 13:46
il viale cittadino forma una bella diagonale che si inoltra tra l'infinito susseguirsi di palazzi e case, una bella prospettiva, da un ottimo pov, un grande panorama.
jcpix (13686) 2014-02-02 13:47
My oh my, this really gives us an idea of how densely packed Athens is...there doesn't appear to be any room to move!? :) A super perspective on the urban landscape, the compressed visual makes for instant impact. I really like how you've framed this too, utilizing the large avenue as a vein through the city, breaking up what would otherwise be one large, never-ending frame of concrete. So much to scan over, as you've filled the entire frame with detail...if I had the time, I'd look into each and every window and rooftop. A place I must absolutely visit one day. Enjoy the new week ahead. Take good care.
Alco (6974) 2014-02-02 22:27
Very nice point of view over that beautiful city.Superb lighting to show the details of the buildings.Great DOF and sharpness.Very well done.
Have a nice day.
jjcordier (76848) 2014-02-02 22:41
Très bon point de vue sur Athènes et son habitat très dense qui semble coupé en deux par cette grande artère rectiligne.
abmdsudi (43714) 2014-02-02 22:44
A dynamic compo of the city skyline with strong diagonal touch as though dividing the highly compact city in equal portion. The brilliant low warm light, shadow and colours make lot of diff at the same time enhances the depth with an appealing clarity and contrast. You achieved a satisfying result with your usual seamless work. Great capture, Well done, TFS
marina7 (8055) 2014-02-03 12:00
amazing point of view and unbelievable density! I guess Athens can compete with Tokyo in this respect:) And it's almost monochrome..great sight indeed. Beautiful job.
batalay (35721) 2014-02-03 23:48
I think I recognize the particular angle from the Acropolis. You are right, it is a beautiful city, an eternal city.
CLODO (30597) 2014-02-04 0:18
Amazing citscape where the houses seem glued together, excetp in this avenue in perspective. Some new buildings (higher, with glass and iron) are built within the old houses of this area.
amaryllis (35075) 2014-02-04 5:29
une vue en plongée sur cette capitale de la Grèce et ton cadrage nous permet de bien voir cette agglomération importante, les habitations, les avenues et tu as bénéficié d'une belle lumière et comme tu le dis, on a du mal à penser qu'en arrière plan cela peut s'arrêter!
jemaflor (85374) 2014-02-04 11:16
Good pov on the town, interesting effect with this line through the buildings, well seen and framed, good visual impact.
krzychu30 (15498) 2014-02-04 23:24
zgadzam sie z toba t 100%-widok jest wspanialy i zapiera dech w piersiach.
Mi sie dodatkowo podoba fakt,ze zdecydowalas sie na zblizenie i przedstawilas nam troszke mniejszy "wycinek" tej betonowej dzungli.
PS.mnie Ateny zachwycily najbardziej noca podczas ladowania.
fabbs99 (16433) 2014-02-05 11:43
Brilliant shot of the city of Athens and the cute colorful houses. Very nice perspective and good framing with nice colors and an excellent overall quality .TFS.
chrislo (4155) 2014-02-05 12:58
Amazing birdview of this huge, sprawling city. I'm so struck by the large scale of this city, it's just crazy how densely populated it is. Your well chosen viewpoint shows it off to perfection, and I like how the frame is divided by the wide tree-lined street. The level of detail is really great, and it would take some time to look at the picture in its entirety. Nicely done, Gosia. I like the subject and composition a lot. Well done.
Oceania (4982) 2014-02-06 6:47
It's a magical aerial view of city of Athens. Yes, the Acropolis is the best place to take the stunning view. I've been there. Your beautiful picture let me recall the wonderful time there.
mesutilgim (85296) 2014-02-09 4:35
Very nice birdseye view of Athens taken from Acropolis.
Good layout and a perfect evidence of the rapid but unfortunately unplanned growth of the city.
TFS and have a nice weekend
Graal (97765) 2014-02-14 1:23
fajnie wygladaja Ateny widziane z Akropolu. Kiedys tam bylem. Inny fajny POV to Likavitos. Nie robilem zdjec tylko filmowalem, trudno.
Milego WE zycze.
kato (11630) 2014-02-27 1:37
You're capturing well this cityscape by a good angle and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the Great Athens which consists of dense/tasteful buildings. The main street extended straightly separated the city and city is compartmented well. And, it's also impressive in greenery in the distance.
adores (37505) 2014-03-01 2:50
From this point of view we can really understand hou big it is. A very good pov indeed and an incredible view. Good to see they have some trees on the streets.
Well captured, with good light!
chrisg76 (632) 2014-03-01 12:28
Just an amazing shot of Athens, showing the vastness of the city!
Great colours and details!
I have lived most of my life in Athens and I find the city irresistible, having great memories of it.
I completely agree with you, the city is absolutely unique and wonderful!
Your photo conveys this impression very well!
Hope to return there in the future.
