ENG:Eretria was a polis in Ancient Greece, located on the western coast of the island of Euboea, south of Chalcis, facing the coast of Attica across the narrow Euboean Gulf. Eretria was an important Greek polis in the 6th/5th century BC. However, it lost its importance in antiquity. Excavations of the ancient city began in the 1890s and have been conducted since 1964 by the Greek Archaeological Service and the Swiss School of Archaeology in Greece.Today, there is a modern Greek town of the same name on the ancient site.The modern town of Eretria was established in 1824, after Greek independence, and is now a popular beachside resort. The historic and archaeological finds from Eretria and Lefkandi are displayed in the Eretria Museum, established by the Swiss School of Archaeology in Greece.The town can be reached from Skala Oropou, Attica by ferryboat or via Halkida by road. It's an important station on the way to the south of the island. It has many taverns and a long beach promenade. The archaeological excavations are located on the northern edge of the modern town.The municipality Eretria was formed at the 2011 local government reform by the merger of the following 2 former municipalities, that became municipal units:Amarynthos,Eretria

The photograp is sharp and bright.
The colours are amply saturated and the waters in the foreground which is in perfect focus, shows excellent depth.
The boat / trawler with the nets and the coloured containers used as buoys has been vividly captured.
Perhaps I would have prefered not to have the corners darkened (vignetting), but thats only a personal openion.
Thanks for sharing this photograph, Chris.

J'aime bien la texture de cette image. Le cadrage est classique mais efficace et les couleurs ressortent bien.

A nice boat, well presented with an interesting tone of the colours and good contrasts. I think maybe that the cropping is rather tight. The boat looks a bit locked inside the frame.

Kalispera dear Chris
A beautiful, colourful and characteristic old boat that Greece is famous for. You managed the light superbly, with the white tones of the boat cleverly brightened. The silvery light on the water is another beautiful element. Thanks for sharing, have a lovely day.

Le vignetage dans ce ciel donne du caractère à cette réalisation.les couleurs de ce bateau créent le bon contraste et j'aime beaucoup les reflets du premier plan.

Γεια σου Chris του
Τα συστατικά αυτής της εικόνας συνδυάζονται πολύ καλά μαζί. Η έκθεση και το βάθος είναι άριστες. Υπάρχουν καλά ο φίλος μου.

This is a typical fishing boat around here with its identical design and tradition. Good that the subject matter is so well treated in sharp focus with some nice vivid colors to add the general beauty. Above all I like the contrast to dark water making it stands out in stark contrast. This is fine close up work full of local flavour. Congrats, TFS

Ο Γρηγόρης είναι μια παραδοσιακή ελληνική βάρκα. Πάντα είναι ευπρόσδεκτη μια τέτοια εικόνα γιατί παρουσιάζει την ελληνική παράδοση μας. Πολύ όμορφα χρώματα.
Καλό απόγευμα και καλή βδομάδα,

Geia sou Chris
Nice vignette work that concentrates attention on vintage boat for a better view on basic fishing tackle used by hearty people as means of earning money.
Nice details captured despite a "sulky" sky!

Another nice seafaring image of a fishing boat - the colours & clarity are really nice.
I always find your notes very interesting.
I like the dark ripples in the water & the wonderful band of light behind the boat.
A really pleasant image... well done Chris.

Employing all picture space well, shoing a fishing boat afloat and anchored, in vivid colors, and good contrast.
The water in front of the boat has good light upon, and fine texture's.
Have a nice weekend,
macjake (58956) 2013-01-17 4:30
there are 3 things i really like about this photo.
First, seeing the blackness of the water is really cool, the boat itself is a wonderful subject, and how the corners of the frame are darkened at the top, very nice effect.

Hi Chris !!
The fishing boat is nice, small but adequate for the region.The water in front looks sensational, a bit choppy, adding character.
Colours are very natural with sharp details.
have a nice week end.

Nice little boat at a nice little quay. It looks as though the color balance were altered. Overall, it is a very pleasant photo, TFS.
PS - Thank you for your mention of the events in Taksim. I was oblivious until I read your critique and have been glued to the internet ever since.
