Karlovasi waterfront on Samos Island in the far eastern Aegean just off the coast of Turkey. This was my last view of this idyllic island taken from the top of the 5 level ocean liner to Mykonos. I spent most of my time at Pythagorio on the south east coast. Karlovasi is on the north west coast.

I like the way the composition is divided, the sky, the mountains and the town. The point of view is showing the détails, the colours of boats, of the buildings and of the mountains. The good luminosity is enhancing the colours. Have a nice ay.

Good morning, Chris,
Your photo brings me back to the Greek islands again. Perfect quality, very nice view. As you say just an idyllic island.
Have a great day ahead!

Belle prise de vue de ce village au pied de la colline et des maisons construites sur les hauteurs. J'aime beaucoup la couleur orangée des toits et cette lumière qui éclaire les maisons. Bien fait.

This is really the first photo I've seen of Samos from Samos. It's an excellent touristic photo. I've stood on the Turkish Mainland many times (especially around Miletus) and gazed on Samos. For me both of these ancient sites have deep significance. Miletus was the city of Thales, often cited as the first scientist. "There exist natural laws, and we do not have look to the whims and vagaries of the gods to explain physical phenomena!" He headed an academy there, and two of his students (who later became faculty members) were Anaximander and Anaximenes. A little later, Pythagoras of Samos received his education there. And three centuries later still, Aristarchus came from Samos, and reasoned out the spherical shape of the earth.

You spent most of the time ... you rather travelled like wind, as I remember. Beautiful view of the small marina, I like most here the houses on the hill. Excellent composition.

brought back some memories this one, loved Samos and this shot typifies its magic and beauty superbly. Glorious Greek light and stunning detail make this view captivating. OO! could do with some of that warm sun right now.

when I looked at the name of the place I thought it sounded Czech :-) I was surprised it was taken in Greece, but then the scenery is unmistakeable. Beautiful port with colorful houses and some white boats in the harbour - so typical for this country and so lovely every time I see it :-) The image gains loads of beauty from the hills in the background and tiny buildings scattered about it.
Very nice light and well managed. Great colors and sharpness.
Well done! TFS

Great shot from a good POV. We also spent our time in Pythagorio, but this looks a great place to visit.

Lovely taken out of the height with a wonderful sight about these marina.
Also the high mountain top in background cares for a nice picture.
Very well composition, light and colours are excellent taken.
Nice done, TFS.
Have a nice day,

Hi Chris, je vois que vous êtes revenu quand moi je partait une semaine en Autriche...
Une très jolie vue de Samos avec le village au pieds de la colline, de belles couleurs agréable a regarder

Un bel endroit de Grèce que je ne connaissais pas.Un point de vue parfait, comme si tu étais sur le pont d'un bateau de croisière. Une lumière spectaculaire qui fait bien ressortir les détails.

Good evening Chris,
The view of the mountain's top white church is stunning.
Prominently on a prevailing point over the beautiful bay and town houses.
Superb shot on a clear daty, well rendered the DOF and the green color (forest) contrast to white (houses) and blue sea.

My first impression is your fine composition, the quayside emerging from the bottom r/h corner and travelling across the frame to about 1/3 the way up the opposing side. It ensures that viewers travel this length, absorbing the details of quayside and waterside, as they progress. It is a delightful scene, lots to find in the f/g, with churches and dwellings to tempt us in the b/g.
My warm regards,

hello Chris - The little town has such charm and a beautiful location nestled under the hills and next to the ocean. Your vantage point shows it off to perfection, the bright light and attractive colours and contrasts are so finely presented in this crisp and clean image. It makes me want to pack my bags and fly away! Warm regards Rosemary

very nice the panoramic view of Karlovasi from the ship i think.Excellent the light and the colour management with the green hill to dominating on the backdrop of the scene.

A beautiful sight of this charming Greek harbour taken from a good POV. I like the way some of the houses were built to follow the curve of the hill. The colourful buildings, the sharpness and brightness of the shot make it a very attractive photograph. Lovely composition.

Hola Chris ( not merhaba )
Thia capture is a true lesson of composition, a good one taken from a high pangle, it lets admire sea, ships, houses and mountainsat the very back
Lot of detail to watch, being my prefered the tiny mosque or church on top of the hill
Well done, you deserved 50 points!!
PaulVDV (23021) 2014-02-19 11:29
I thought you had found another hill for this excellent high POV but it was the upper level of a ship.
The church on top of the forested hill looks a wonderful aim for a hike.
I like the luminosity and the beautiful colours very much.
Best regards, Paul

I don't think there's any part of Greece that's not beautiful! And there's so much history in this country. Lovely seaside village and I wouldn't mind living on top of the hill, I can just imagine the view from there. Good lighting and sharp details. Well done, tfs.
