I like the small details of the street in this old town.
Metsovo is a town in Epirus on the mountains of Pindus in northern Greece, between Ioannina to the north and Meteora to the south. The largest centre of Vlach life in Greece.
In 15th century Metsovo came under the Ottoman rule and became part of the Sanjak of Ioannina. Throughout the late period of Ottoman rule (18th century-1913) the Greek and Aromanian population of the region (northern pindus) suffered from Albanian raiders. Also, in one occasion in the local Greek revolt of 1854 the town was plundered Ottoman troops, and the men of Theodoros Grivas, former general of the Greek military, during their struggle for control of the town. During the First Balkan War, Metsovo was burnt by bands. During the Second World War Metsovo was the capital of a puppet state, established by the Axis forces, known as the Principality of the Pindus.

A very interesting composition that suits the vertical format. Lots to see and linger over. I like the light and colours. Sharpness seems OK to me.

The steps in the immediate foreground are really inviting me into the scene, and how cool to look rot down the street and over the roofs and into the distant mountains. The lighting you captured here is very beautiful.

J'aime beaucoup le format allongé de l'image. On semble suivre au loin la ligne électrique qui serpente entre les maisons pour aller très loin dans l'image.

Interesting view of Metsovo, red tile roof tops, chimneys, and the dense forested slopes background.
Would be enjoyable to stroll here, and witness the history and meet people.
Thanks for sharing,

A good perspective on the rooftops and turning the street corner, gorgeous background covered mountains, quite woody.
Very good color, which gives much strength to the image.
Great management of brightness and sharpness.
Have a good weekend.
All the best.
