A simple daily life image, captured on the long and wide beach of Palaio Faliro (southern Attica) from the promenade. It was a stormy afternoon, idle for the two guys entertaining themselves on the beach, taking portrait pictures of each other with the sunset and the seascape as backdrop. As for me, that was my last afternoon in Athens with very limited time to take some photos under the menacing sky.
Thank you for visiting

This may seem like a simple composition but I find it very refined and attractive. The two young men create an interest in what is going on at the almost deserted beach and the red shirt matches the life-guards tower perfectly. The setting sun, and maybe approaching bad weather, has created very warm and slightly subdued colours wrapping the entire view in a golden hue. I appreciate the yacht way back at the horizon.

for me it´s a masterpiece!
Creative,excellently thought-out and executed.
It has this kind of unique,relaxing mood I really like in photos and also technically the image is flawless.Here I have to mention the color scheme of the image with so strong contrasting colors.And definitely the grey sky was here an advantage.
Have a nice evening

Simple moment, yet excelent clear view over the beach.
The red skeleton of the life-guard hut and the two guys on the waterfront, gave extra interest on the scene: assuming they were not aware of your camera around.
White sailboat on far left, stand-out good contrast.
Good night from Israel.

Interesantan tekst o mestu i trenutku, lep pogled ...
Dobar trenutak snimka i kontrast, lepo pokazana plaza, platforma za spasioca i trenutak posetiocima, lepe boje.
Lepo mesto za druzenje i setnju.
Prijatno vece i lepa noc, sve najbolje u novoj nedelji koja je pocela, srecno.
An interesting article on the place and time, nice view ...
Good time recording and contrast nicely demonstrated plaza, a platform for a savior and a second visitor, beautiful colors.
Nice place to socialize and walk.
Have a nice evening and night, all the best in the new week that started, good luck.

Once again, you've managed to extract the most out of a simple scene. What I first found fascinating was the scale and contrast of structures between the foreground stand and the distant, background sailboat...big and small, near and far...with an added bonus of color contrast. Interesting compositional element as well, having the top of the stand lined up with the horizon. Normally that doesn't work too well, but in this case it makes for nice distinction between the sky and sea, and well...the stand. :)
Then you throw in these two having fun taking pictures of each other, incorporating that human aspect, and you have yourself a very nice, candid outcome. The sky may have been heavy, but there's a hint of sun projecting from the right side of the frame, putting the finishing touch on a delightfully minimal image. Enjoy the day ahead. Take good care.

Toujours intéressant d'observer les autres photographes à l'oeuvre, surtout lorsque l'on a notre caméra avec nous. J'aime le beau lien entre le rouge du poste d'observation et le rouge du chandail.

Wonderful composition with great visual appeal. The contrast between the vivid red of the rig in the FG and the man's shirt and the cool colours of the sea is very appealing and you managed the difficult light with great expertise. Definitely qualifies as a DL as well as a Nature shot. The inclusion of the yacht in the distance completes the picture.
Thanks for sharing and have a lovely day.

yassou Ourania mou, ti kaneis?
A truly creative composition, well done with the horizon placed high, the red eye catching structure at the right and the two people to balance and march wiith color contrast
Like the presence of the small boats very far away
Have a good week ahead
