The beach is one of the three sandy ones accessible from the village Kalamitsi. Very often locals do not even know the real name for this place and call it the same as the village. The very first part of the beach is really impressive with massive stones half dipped in the sea, but if someone with a little bit more curiosity and stronger shoes goes over small hill will be surprised at the sight of big and pleasant beach, very often empty even in the season.
I do not have to add that now the chances of meeting anybody there are very remote. So could stroll there for hours, waiting for the right light totally undisturbed.

The fairly long exposure time has given the frothy water the look of cream just about to cover the nicely polished large pebbles for a few seconds. To watch the waves rolling in and rolling out can be an almost hypnotic experience. It's a very nice shoreline you have captured and you have cropped the photo in a most suitable way. There isn't a great variety of colours, but those few are very pleasant and the light is great.

beautiful shot, i like the low p.o.v. you have chosen. great colors.

bello il taglio verticale che aggiunge profondità a questa bella foto.
Splendida messa a fuoco e ottima scelta dei tempi, il movimento dell'acqua manca solo del rumore.
Molto piacevole la luce che crea una bella atmosfera.
Sembra che tu sia un amante delle luci calde, ogni tua foto ha questa caratteristica.

Congratulations for this superb framing with good light. The result is huge!
PaulVDV (17333) 2013-11-03 12:19
A very good perspective.
I like the contrast between the pin sharp pebbles on the foreground and the foam of the waves beside them.
Best regards, Paul

znakomita fotografia. Ta plaza jest bardzo piekna ale w dodatku uchwycilas ja we wspanialym cieplym swietle. Interesujacy pionowy format swietnie okazal sie bardzo skuteczny tutaj. Dlugi czas ekspozycji sprawil ze lekko rozmyte spienione fale ciekawie kontrastuja z wyraznymi kamieniami. Bardzo ciekawe skaly nieco dalej. Sliczne miejsce i doskonala prezentacja!

Hi dear Kamlia
Great 1/30 shutter speed setting makes very wonderful image for blurred waves. Great panfocus vertical format usage is also so fantastic to see. The best seaside post card at all!
All the best and have a good new week! TAKERO

When i see the kind of picture you can take a 1rst november and when i see mine.... i would like to live in Greece ;)
Great DOF and nice motion on the water

zdjecie ma zdecydowanie to "cos"!I nie chodzi mi tu tylko o oczywiste piekno tego miejsca.
Przede wszystkim podoba mi sie twoj kadr i dobrana ekspozycja znakomicie uchwycajaca ruch wody.To w polaczeniu z delikatnym swiatlem oraz kolorami tworzy wyjatkowy nastroj sceny.
timecapturer (37200) 2013-11-04 2:25
enticing and serene beach shot this. Love the contrast of sharp beach detail and movement of the tide. The light is delicious and the atmosphere one of splendid isolation and peace. Love it!
Have a good week - Brian.

A beautiful composition on this, and I really like your frame too. Those stones in the foreground are so round and smooth, not like the sharp ones I am more used to walking on at beaches. the effect of the water is beautiful too, this is an effect I hope to someday achieve myself, but love to enjoy yours!
Thanks as always
dkmurphys (42597) 2013-11-04 5:12
Very attractive beach composition. I like the foreground rocks and the way you've composed this scene. Well done.
Oceania (3245) 2013-11-04 6:58
I really like you set the shutter speed to relatively slow. It made water soft against the rocky pebble beach. The vertical format is very nice as well. It's a very enjoyable picture.
HimalAnda (6950) 2013-11-04 9:13
The composition is excellent, with a great depth of field. The vertical format is a very good choice.
The light is nice over this beautiful beach.

Hi Kamila,magnificent and original capture from this greek beach,i like a lot the silk effect create by the water in this long time of exposure,beautiful perspective,details and colors too!Have a nice day and thanks,Luciano
ourania (18738) 2013-11-04 14:27
a wonderful presentation of this lovely beach, you've rendered your description as thorough, vivid and pleasant as possible. I like very much how our impression starts with the little pebbles in the foreground and ends with the massive golden rocks in the distance. The motion of the sea is really effective, the textures have retained all their naturalness. You've captured a very fine light that has given an agreeable brightness to the warm tones. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great day,

quelle plage et image superbe vue ce petit caillux rond et le rendu sur l'eau sueprbe iamge et compo le mouvement de la vague et la roche en fond sueprbe.
Bravo et amitié
Cricri (92267) 2013-11-06 5:16
Une belle lumière chez toi, ici il pleut!! j'aime la composition et le format, ce mélange de pierres, de sable, de rochers, qui lui donne un coté sauvage attirant en plus de l'eau turquoise de l'eau, bien pris les vagues en avant plan, magnifique
Romano46 (11607) 2013-11-06 10:48
una foto ben pensata ed ancor meglio realizzata.
Il bel taglio verticale ti ha permesso di fare una composizione molto gradevole che evidenzia in maniera eccellente sia la roccia che si immerge nell'acqua che l'acciottolato bagnato dall'onda, lasciando a quest'ultima il bel compito di tracciare un efficace disegno con la sua spuma.
Ottima la nitidezza. molto bella lal luce e splendidi i colori.
La tua splendida Grecia colpisce ancora una volta!
Ciao e buona serata

Hi Kamila, Bonjour,
Beautiful seascape well presented and composed,
Nice point of view and details,
good tone of colors and light,
dta (56784) 2013-11-07 6:48
Hello KAmila ,
This is your 100th post on TE , and a beautiful one . I like especially the details in the pebbles and the effect of the exposure in the waves .
eldancer1 (20850) 2013-11-07 14:29
I like the effect of the slow speed on the wave especially in the foreground, very creative and original. The vertical worked well with the composition. Good lighting and nice details. Well done, tfs.
photoray (6700) 2013-11-08 7:13
Your vertical view accentuates the power of the ocean with slow moving wave action grinding the rocks into rounded pebbles, and larger formations jutting into the sea.
I could certainly stroll here, beachcomb, relax and soak in the Greek mystic.
jemaflor (74128) 2013-11-08 9:14
Nice depth effect, I like this landscape and the Fg with stones and foam, well taken and presented.
ChrisJ (91292) 2013-11-08 14:23
Love this although I worry for your camera. I tried a similar shot in the Philippines and had to keep one eye on incoming waves and another on the viewfinder! Fantastic motion blur of the wave and the low shooting angle is amazing. Goo sharpness and nice warm vs cold color contrasts. Tfs!
abmdsudi (32529) 2013-11-08 20:06
This is so wonderful slow shutter shot, the composition, textured beach and blue water movement, a strong image splendid in its natural colours and great emphasis on the power of the waves without losing any interests in the setting. I must commend the low warm light and shadows registered, is indeed wonderful adding the extra depth to the overall shot. Great photo, Lovely! tfs.
adramad (30989) 2013-11-09 11:44
Sensational this beautiful composition vertically, allowing us to see a large area of this lovely beach and the coast, magnificent effect of these rounded stones in the foreground, I also like the moment captured, with the wave breaking on the sand, the bottom with those big rocks is wonderful.
Lovely colorful in these tones so natural.
Very good brightness and sharpness is also excellent.
Very well done. I love it.
All the best.
josepmarin (56517) 2013-11-13 2:55
this is your 100 photo published here. Congratulations!
You have looked for an efficient point of view, giving a great depth to the image of the beach, with a fantastic sharpness, and in consequence, we can see clearly all the details and textures of the pebbles in foreground. The foam of the small waves on the beach is very pleasant at sight.
A wonderful work.
Herquin (7057) 2013-11-16 11:38
j'aime ce style de photo de bord de mer , il ne manque plus que l'odeur de l'iode pour complèter cette image idyllique .
Bonne soirée .
