About half an hour before the end of the day,i visited Agios Nikolaos,a coastal town of East Creta,during the hour where the owners of the restaurants spread their tables on the waterfront waiting their customers...
Agios Nikolaos (or Aghios Nikolaos, Greek: Άγιος Νικόλαος) is a coastal town on the Greek island of Crete, lying east of the island's capital Heraklion, north of the town of Ierapetra and west of the town of Sitia. In the year 2000, the Municipality of Agios Nikolaos, which takes in part of the surrounding villages, claimed around 19,000 inhabitants. The town is the capital of the nomos (province) of Lasithi, and sits partially upon the ruins of the ancient city of Lato pros Kamara.

tavoli che aspettano sul far della sera di essere occupati.
Bello l'effetto della luce e l'ampio POV sul porticciolo,
sacimar (25971) 2011-05-10 10:21
this is a good place to have dinner, good perspective and angle, the light and tones of this part of the day are beautiful, well done,
Budapestman (82620) 2011-05-10 11:52
a beautiful sunset atmosphere with very nice composition and soft lights, superb details and POV, Tfs! Have a nice evening! Kellemes estét kívánok!
scroller (3407) 2011-05-10 12:01
Your photo looks a bit "before the tourist season". Nobody sitting having a dinner or cup of tea. Or maybe the guest are sitting on the back wall waiting for the restaurant to open?
pajaran (45627) 2011-05-10 12:37
Lepo mesto u luci sa pustim stolovima, lepa fotografija.
Dobar trenutak snimka sa pogledom na mesto u trenutku zalaska sunca, dobra kompozicija.
Dobar rad i prikaz mesta ostrim snimkom i dobrim tekstom, moje cestitke.
Prijatno vece i mirna noc sa lepim vremenom.
Nice place in the port to release tables, beautiful photos.
A good time recording with a view to a place at the time of sunset, a good composition.
Good work and display spaces sharp text and good, my congratulations.
Pleasant evening and quiet night with the beautiful weather.
All the best.

Γειά σου Δάνο!
Μία θεαματική στιγμή! Καί με ιδιαιτερότητα στο πλάνο και την προοπτική! Εντυπωσιακό το πρώτο πλάνο!
(Θα έκοβα λίγο το αριστερό γλαστράκι και λίγο από δεξιά το πατίνι!)Αλλά αυτό δε με χαλάει την όλη καλή εντύπωση
paura (47166) 2011-05-10 14:46
Que beleza de grande angular. Em cada pequeno detalhe uma grande fotografia.
raszid62 (18583) 2011-05-10 15:27
Δείπνο σε αυτό σε όμορφη τοποθεσία εστιατόριο, πρέπει να είναι μια πραγματική απόλαυση. Εξαιρετικό οδόστρωμα της γκρίζα πέτρα. Εκπληκτικό και όμορφη χρυσή ουρανό. Υπέροχα χρώματα και ευκρίνεια.
dip (22932) 2011-05-10 15:53
Γειά σου Δάνο,
ωραία φωτό απ' τον Άγιο Νικόλαο με τα τραπεζάκια στο πρώτο πλάνο σαν να σε προσκαλούν να πάρεις θέση,
καλή επιλογή POV και καλή οξύτητα,
Sonata11 (32261) 2011-05-10 17:22
an excellent composition and framework. Fantastic POV. The scene in this picture is very beautiful with great management of light , colors, sharpness, contras. Absolutely excellent job!
All the best,
pierrefonds (53370) 2011-05-10 17:38
The buildings and the restaurant tables are framing well the lagoon. The point bof view is showing the details and colors of the restaurant tables and of the buildings. The early evening light is making the colors to stand out. Have a nice day.
geoant68 (2751) 2011-05-10 22:47
Δάνο γεια σου,
το πανοραμικό σκηνικό είναι υπέροχο με την λιμνοθάλασσα να εκτείνεται μπροστά από τα τραπέζια.Μια ολόκρηρη σκηνή που συμπληρώνεται με τα παιδιά που παίζουν δίπλα με το πατίνι τους.Το τέλος της ημέρας πλησιάζει με τα σύννεφα να έχουν πάρει αυτό το υπέροχο χρώμα του δειλινού.
Graal (94194) 2011-05-10 23:48
pleasant view and place. Nice presentation of Agios Nikolaos. Photo well done. I like it.
Have a nice day.
ikeharel (48491) 2011-05-11 1:32
Beautiful Agios Nikolaos from a known POV, Danos.
(I have a similar pic./ but not good Q)
The afternoon light is giving a unique texture and calm ambiance to image, as the place doe's - so I remember.
RhodieIke (11108) 2011-05-11 1:41
Hi Danos, Great photo, super place to eat,love your angle, Cheers Iain.
dkmurphys (44761) 2011-05-11 1:47
Incredible atmosphere a good mood moment to catch. The place is very picturesque. Well seen, have a great day.
rodgerg (55767) 2011-05-11 2:52
I visited Agios Nikolaos in ... 1975! Excellent shot with beautiful contrast and especillay a very graphic FG with the table and the chairs which give too a greta depht.
jhm (132000) 2011-05-11 3:16
Pleasant place for a break and perhaps take a good glass wine along the edge of the water.
We get a specially sky with these clouds.
Also these picture here is nice for look at through the nice construction of the city in background.
Excellent composition, nice presentation.
mvdisco (17506) 2011-05-11 4:38
Beautiful presentation of this lovely place,
Excellent wide angle point of view and details,
nice place for relax and take a dinner,
Very well done.
josepmarin (57281) 2011-05-11 4:47
these tables in the waterfront are a real invitation to sit down there and enjoy the sights while we have a dinner and the city is illuminated at dusk.
A good management of the weak light, and a good result in the quality of the image and of the colors, with which you have reached one composition very attractive.
A splendid work, my friend.
siamesa (27701) 2011-05-11 5:15
Bom dia Danos
This place is charming. Perfect to meet friends in the end of afternoon. Belíssima.
peppe59 (14551) 2011-05-11 8:30
very beautiful image and the management of light and color, great clarity, perfect POV.
adramad (33662) 2011-05-11 10:42
You captured a beautiful picture with a light ideal for late afternoon, this ideal situation, the restaurant next to the harbor, beautiful sky with the clouds pink.
Good Housekeeping bright with good contrast and color.
Have a nice afternoon.
Cricri (97215) 2011-05-11 11:14
Très jolie présentation, c'est un plaisir de prendre son dîner a une de ces tables près du port, sous la douceur de la lumière, beau moment choisi et très jolie présentation
ciakgiak (30403) 2011-05-11 13:50
Ciao di nuovo Danos,
riesci a scovare posticini di grande charme, dove sarà molto piacevole spendere momenti romantici o particolarmente piacevoli.
Molto bella la luce e la composizione.
Un caro abbraccio
Fis2 (79890) 2011-05-11 13:55
Very impressive picture.
vasilpro (40687) 2011-05-11 15:09
Γεια σου Δάνο,
Εξαιρετική σύνθεση από τον Άγιο Νικόλαο με υπέροχα χρώματα και πολύ όμορφη ατμόσφαιρα, τα άδεια τραπεζάκια μας προσκαλούν για ένα γεύμα σε ένα πολύ ευχάριστο περιβάλλον.
Σε χαιρετώ, Βασίλης.
fabianoleite (9292) 2011-05-11 16:31
The tables arranged there are a great subject, well framed by the details of the floor and with great colors and lights. Congratulations!
SnapRJW (27198) 2011-05-11 22:16
Hello Danos - A nicely framed shot with good light management under the soft light. I like the way the tables and chairs pop out from the BG adding some bright colourful detail to the image. Best regards Rosemary
Glint (5993) 2011-05-12 0:52
you have chosen a good pov to give a nicely composed composition. Unfortunately I find the plant pot in the bottom left corner a little distracting and wished that you had been able to crop it out. However, this is an inviting view and I would love to be sitting at that table right now.
I stayed for a week at Aghios Nikolaos just before Greek Easter a few years ago and really enjoyed it.
kato (11148) 2011-05-12 3:04
You're capturing well this place by a good composition, excellent tone and visual effect, it is impressive to catch some seat tables of restaurant, creek that boat in the other side lines and the buildings by an effective space. And, it draws out a good effct for the whole that there is wide ground space at right side as well as thick clouds in the sky at dusk, I think.
Vague (307) 2011-05-12 5:42
What I really admire in this photo is the fact that a very simple and everyday-life scene is transformed into an intriguing and pleasant-to-the eye picture. The angle is very good and the time of day/light/colours of the sky make the overall effect more dramatic. Congratulations!
Urs (14082) 2011-05-12 6:12
Sorry for being absent for more then two months but the workload was to big and the deadlines to short. Next week another job begins, but I still think I will be able to visit regularly TE.
This is a rather dramatic sunset coloring everything in a pinkish hue. The scenery reminds me of an amphitheater. you really selected the best spot possible. Warm color hues with high sharpness, well done.
sacavem (18608) 2011-05-12 6:32
End of day this place must be very nice for dinner. But with this economic crisis "yet" there is money for the restaurant?
I like the POV that conveys a great depth, good management of light.
s_lush (16130) 2011-05-12 8:56
The light of the setting sun makes this scene being simply marvelous in your picture. The row of multicolored buildings looks highly impressive between the interesting foreground and the wonderfully clouded sky. A very good moment of capturing, well-balanced composition, beautiful colors, excellently reproduced atmosphere of the end of the day, and perfect quality of the image, despite the obvious lack of direct sunlight!
fritzi007 (902) 2011-05-12 11:17
Unusual perspective, but a good photo, nice colors and good comment!
Wish you a nice weekend
baddori (19153) 2011-05-12 11:36
Su TE queste foto portano bene ...qualche cosa di nuovo che sfugge alle regole ed alle geometrie :
Movimento e colore ...
anokutan (15097) 2011-05-12 12:33
Nice place in the port to release tables, beautiful photos.A good time recording with a view to a place at the time of sunset, a good composition.
paololg (31448) 2011-05-12 14:04
Ciao dear Danos,
the difficult conditions of light do not have prevented you to capture an image very pleasant, full of details well defined. The stone floor create an interesting pattern that contrasts with tables and chairs. Excellent depth, congratulations for this excellent work!
Ciao, have a nice Friday!
Robert1969 (6758) 2011-05-12 23:03
The waiting customers and the empty stairs and tables gives a funny effect...Great timing and moment.
The point of view, the composition, the POV and light are also great.
AiresSantos (56155) 2011-05-12 23:09
What a pleasant place !
Despite the low light, you got fine colors
Well framed and done
have a nice day
Giorgio (11279) 2011-05-12 23:15
- Unbelievable light under this very amazing sky Danos, excellent idea for these boats in background and tables in foreground anyway a pretty place with relief effect for a beautiful picture with nice technical quality, well done!
nilotpal_patra (1684) 2011-05-13 3:55
Namaskar Danos Kounenis,
It is realy, realy a Wonderful Picture. Nice Frame. Nice colour, contrast and sharpness. Nice POV. TFS.
Bluejeans (64247) 2011-05-13 5:44
Ola Danos ,
Bonita composição com esta zona de restaurantes junto desta lagoa , um belo lugar para um jantar romântico , bons detalhes e cores, parabéns!!
Um abraço Gonçalo
subhendu_bagchi (24449) 2011-05-13 6:46
an interesting composition of this beautiful place. Like your presentation it with those tables and chairs at FG. The colour of the sky is superb and you managed the light very well. A great composition indeed. Tfs.
jaywalker (16095) 2011-05-13 10:02
Hi Danos, A nice view of this lagoon & a lovely addition with the cafe tables dotted in the foreground, the last sprays of light allow for a beautiful atmosphere, TFS, kind regards Wilson.
Kielia (22361) 2011-05-13 10:04
this impression is fantastic. The colors are very beautiful and the management of the light is excellent. But what I like most is the moody sky. And one can even smell the fresh air. A great capture!
nikkitta (11230) 2011-05-14 14:21
Time to diner is this great place, must be delicious, before an Ouzo of course?
I saw you use special lences to created this beautiful capture
Greetings and have a good Sunday
JCG (35129) 2011-05-15 1:28
At the bottom of the image, customers who expect the official opening of the restaurant !!! I understand their enthusiasm because the harbor view is superb. I really like the effect of wide angle here which gives a relief effect and a significant depth. The lights provide an interesting atmosphere. Thank you for making us discover these magical places Danos.
With all my friendships and a great Sunday
alin-m (3716) 2011-05-17 7:00
I love to stay at this kind of terrace,with air smelling at sea.
Nice image,very pleasant for my eyes.
skippy007 (12510) 2011-05-18 17:51
Hello Danos, Nice romantic location, the light is super for this motive, I imagine later at night these tables will be full of people. Nice capture.
Angshu (53990) 2011-05-18 22:12
Good use of the wide lens here...like the impression on the floor stones. Light was low & mellow, yet the atmosphere painted here is very nice. lead-in has been well created & so is the framing!
clic (13270) 2011-05-26 13:24
What an inviting setup in dim light to offer libations
to Aphrodite, the goddess of love and beauty!
Quite a sympathic cozy veranda with a view on twilight!
magalik (6101) 2011-05-27 11:29
Kalispera Danos !
It's more easy for me to look at your shots now ! ;)
I don't drool over any more your shots now ! ;)
This place reminds me a little Mykonos with these tables and chairs so characteristic of Greece. I dreamed to have a meal at one of them and now it's done ! I miss much souvlaki and Nescafé frappé ! ;)
A nice composition with an attractive foreground and a background which makes us contemplative. It gives me the desire to go back in holidays ! ;)
PS : I will send you an email this WE, I have a question for you.
Have a good evening you and Mina.
nobuikehonda (3848) 2011-06-19 12:50
You have chosen a very god POV, In the foreground empty table and chairs. It will soon be a dinner time. A beautiful sky in the background and a small Port in between. Overall pinkish color is lovely. A very skillful use of a wide angle lens. The atmosphere of the calm moment is well captured.
Very best regards,
sydb (579) 2011-07-28 12:35
superbe compo et toujours des paysages agréables ont regardé avec des couleurs magnifiques et des contraste superbes la luminosite et les jeux de lumier son doux au regarde bravo
frunchy (1517) 2011-09-29 10:24
i like the POV of this one very much and also the fact that it is wide angle. The slight distortion of the table in the front and the size relation of the front objects and the back objects is what makes Wide angle so special.
Good management of the light situation, not so easy to make a good shot in this light but you made it!
TFS, best regards, F.
maria-v1981 (10420) 2012-08-12 5:03
Αυτές είναι οι χαρές της ζωής υπέροχα μέρει, ουζάκι και νόστιμοι μεζέδες. Τα τραπίεζα αυξάνουν το βάθος της εικόνας και οδηγούν το βλέμμα στο λιμανάκι. Ζεστά χρώματα του δειλινού και πανέμορφες λεπτομέρειες.
Να έχεις ένα καλό απόγευμα,
elenimavrandoni (12085) 2013-04-12 13:01
Δάνο, έγραψες πάλι με τήν ιδιαίτερη οπτική γωνία σου! Μα τι χρώματα, τι ομορφιά σε μια τόσο απλή φωτογραφία!μου αρέσει πολύ η φωτογραφία σου!
Miguel82 (17325) 2013-08-10 5:16
Good pov Danos, these tables are waiting for customers
