Spring sunshine casts its shadows across the upper atrium of the refurbished rotunda buildings at the spa at Kalithea on the eastern coast of the island of Rhodes, Greece.
The springs of Kalithea have been known since ancient times, they rise in the eastern and central part of the island. These legendary spa waters attract people and their families all year with many hoping to be cured of aliments by the waters that spring from the rocks surrounding the bay of Kalithea. The construction of the facilities began at the end of December 1928, by the Italian architect Pietro Lombardi they are currently being re-furbished and brought back to their former glory.

This is a real cracker!
I love how you have captured the curves and their associated shadows.
The shot is bathed in the most glorious light so the contrasts become an integral part of the photograph.
Have a lovely Sunday,

just love this wide-angle perspective here!The way you composed the image and so excellently put the accent on the roof construction really appeals to me.What I like more about your picture is so pleasant shadow play we can observe here-it harmonizes well with these bright,vivid colors.
Have a nice sunday

Fantastica! Con il tuo grandangolo fai spesso delle foto incredibilmente belle. Questa fa parte di questa serie e mi complimento per l'ottima composizionealla quale unisci un sapiente gioco di luci e di ombre che disegnano motivi grafici che si intracciano con i colori dell'architettura e del cielo.
Ciao e buona domenica

A well seen picture and a perfect capture. Strong and attractive colours and the details in the building add a very good pattern. The red little part of the roof makes an eye-catching statement.

Great shot. Love the lines, shadows and shapes that make this so visually intriguing.

Just as the title says... wonderful curves and shadows! This image is all about lines brilliantly used to make a superb shot. Great colours and graphic composition.

Hello Brian - I have been away for a few days and have missed so many good uploads from you. This one really stands out, the radiating roof struts and their shadows make for a dynamic subject and complemented by the curving lines of the floor provide the shot with a strong feeling of movement. My eyes constantly scan the image and take in the superb architectural details. Superb. Warm regards rosemary

You managed to play with the curves and the lines, especially the shadows lines. It is very well done, with an excellent exposure management.

Whoa, if this doesn't get your attention I don't know what will?!! What a fantastic display of shape, design, light and shadow...and the wide angle adds another dimension that makes this a stunning shot! Almost feels like you're trapped in a big spider web, but one that you enjoy being a part of. :) The circular effect is what I find the most striking, this perspective is a real winner! Thanks for sharing this neat look from inside the courtyard.
All the best,
