Inside the gorge of Portitsa.
In the depth you see the stone bridge Venetikos River passes through. Seems to be the guard of the pillars.
The view outside the gorge.

Εξαιρετική με την τοξοτή γέφυρα στο βάθος, πολύ καλή σύνθεση και απόδοση.

Πολυ καλή σύνθεση με υπέροχα χρώματα. Πόυ αρέσει που έχεις περιλάβει μεσα στην εικόνα και τα βράχια δίνουν βαθος στο τοπιο.

A wonderful look on the bridge, with these dark waters between these steep cliffs, which drive the eye into light.

Very beautiful capture, a lovely picturesque place. I like the way that water reflects the strong sunlight, like a path to the paradise.
Well done, enjoy a fine day.

We get almost a fairy tale image with the opening between the big rocks.
Lovely through the bridge in background.
Yet a difficult image through the strong backlight .
Lovely composition, splendid quality of picture.
very well done, TFS.

very attractive composition. The white light is something what I always try to avoid, but you did a great job here in spite of having this difficult light conditions. The processing made these rocky walls so luminous and feeling almost three dimensional.
Fantastic geometry is the strongest part of the composition with the white stripe cutting through the very center.
Very well captured, congratulations,

Awesome contrast and light.
The water and the rock walls make it very unusual and kind.

Perfect POV. The cold and black/gray foreground has a good contrast to the warm cliffs in the background. Fantastic mirror effect and the few graan plants on the rock is roundin up the overal impression. The stone bridge in the back leaves the impression that the scene is from a fery tale. Although that the photo is much compressed, the sharpness and details of the rocks is awsome.
Best regards, Alfie

Athanasions Hello, this is one of the most beautiful picture of a river in a canyon that we have ever seen.
And 'an unusual image of Greece, at least for me.
That bridge in the background is spectacular!
Excellent exposure of the shaded part of the scene and sharpness.
