almost two years ago I've visited Greece and Thessaloniki first time, but I am still loving these days. I'd like to show you some modern blocks of this old city. As you see this part of Thessaloniki does not have some historic buildings, towers and castles.
When I have see such compression of a daily life space I think about a claustrophobia, so I do like more fresh and open air and areas.

Zdravo Serghei. Maybe the city should be called Claustrophobia, since the word is Greek anyway.Incredible density. I often wonder when I see such urban beehives, where does the human waste go if it is a matter of septic tanks. Brilliant light and exceptional details. Regards. Klaudio.

Fascinating view over this part of the city where the buildings seem to be packed together like sardines in a can! I like the framing offered by the red roofs in the foreground in contrast to the predominant white tones in the rest of the scene. An image ideally exposed and exhibiting superb detail.

Well, they surely don't have any space to waste! Spectacular panorama, a very artistic effect here. Well taken.

The foreground part with the red roofs and the trees seems quite attractive but more in the distance there is only stone.
Great view over teh city.

Geia sou Serghei,
nice title for the tight frame of the photo with the lot of houses to looks so stranglehold each to other.The red tiles on the foreground add colour in the scene.
Have a good WE,Danos

Very nicely shoot the modern civilization, dark red colored roof in foreground of the image made a good contrast with background, an well position you took it. Very well sharped and good contrast image.
warm regards and have a nice weekend,

This is indeed a claustrophic shot, and I wild probably go mad if I lived in a place as tightly knit as this. Just like you, I too like open spaces, certainly for a place to live anyway. I love to visit big cities, but am always pleased to go home to green fields :) excellent shot to capture the feeling of this huge urban area.
Thanks as always

Wonderful capture of this urban jungle.
The picture has something frightening and is charming at the same time. Especially the red roofs on the foreground make the image more pleasing.
Excellent clarity and sharpness.
Best regards, Paul

Hello Serghei, this could not have any other title!
An unbelievable sight with the buildings packed so closely together.
Very good depth of field.
photoray (13981) 2014-08-29 14:44
Your scene of modern Thessaloniki reminds me of a giant detailed jigsaw puzzle, buildings in all angles, densely crowded together and dominantly whites.

Excellent view of the city roofs. I like the density and compression roofs. Very good composition. Exposure clarity and well performed. Thanks for sharing this nice picture

PS. I read this report about the TV Show on FB. Well written, amusing :)
Sergiom (79557) 2014-08-30 6:19
C'est ce que l'on peut appeler de la très forte densité.On dirait les maisons collées les unes sur les autres dans un magma de formes en fusion.
holmertz (52656) 2014-08-30 7:14
A city without parks and open spaces would be a horrible place to live in, or just to visit, but the compression you have made here is nothing but fascinating. I know there are many streets between these houses, I just can't see them. What I find most appealing is how you have a mainly red foreground and the rest of the view being almost totally white, except for a blue strip at the top. It's very nicely composed.
alvaraalto (13066) 2014-08-30 9:40
I like the view of cities from above. Here the fascinating monotony of the with facades and the contrast with the red roofs in front.
ourania (45366) 2014-08-31 8:33
I haven't been to Thessaloniki yet, although I have good friends there. I know that people who come from Thessaloniki or have lived there even briefly adore her. They may complain for certain problems but always think about her with affection. You are presenting a very original and intriguing view. A superb composition of great sharpness, it presents the city as a fascinating, vibrant mosaic. The sense of claustrophobia is conveyed very effectively also by the way you nearly filled the frame. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great evening,

This city definitely looks crowded, but that's not unusual for me. :-) I like how all the red roofs are in the foreground, and then everything else is white. It looks like a mostly flat place, without any tall buildings. I hope all is well on your end. Is Jason in your town yet?
Graal (102858) 2014-09-01 6:15
very nice postcard from Thessaloniki. Good high POV you had. Fine composition with red roofs on FG. Photo I like.
Have a nice day.
macjake (67748) 2014-09-01 11:11
haha...i posted a similar photo from Sienna Italy!
this one is fantastic indeed. love these types of views.
you said it perfectly when you commented about the compression, looks great doesn't it.
I also like looking around the scene, investigating the homes, there's alot to see.

Hello dear friend
you are right one shot is one thousand words
a shot that brings a message
jmdias (64384) 2014-10-14 2:22
interesting contrast between the white and red. really the place looks like a giant mess or remaining of a giant shipwreck.
