Kalymnos Town or Pothia is the capital of the Greek island of Kalymnos. Nearly 90% of all inhabitants of Kalymnos live here. The yellow walled town hall (Prefecture Building) is probably the most distinctive building in the harbour.
The harbour is considered to be one of the most important in Greece and has a population of about 1500 residents. Between the neoclassic buildings, you cannot help but notice the distinguished town hall; this was built between 1930-1935 by the Italians to a Venetian theme.

Hello Brian - I like the inclusion of the BG here, one gains a great feel for the way the town is squashed in between the craggy hills and the sea. The town hall makes a super FP with the boats and water ranged before it and your POV lets us see the progression of houses rising up behind. As always, well composed and very attractive colour. Have a pleasant weekend. Rosemary

composizione da manuale con la barca in primo piano decentrata in modo da lasciare tutto il palcoscenico all'edificio giallo-ocra di cui si possono apprezzare molto bene i dettagli architettonici grazie ad uno sharp eccellente.

la città appare sotto una luce perfetta in una ampia panoramica dal mare.
Ottima la definizione con una bella colorazione del mare data dai riflessi,

I would never have guessed in a million years that this building was in Greece!
guess we're so used to seeing white buildings!
I really like the bg with the mountain scape.
another thing that i realize by paying close attention to the architecture is that most of the buildings have a flat rooftop...that NEVER happens here in Canada.
excellent water reflections too, and pin sharpness.

Nice seaside shot, neatly divided into thirds - water, town, hills. Great color bursting into the shot from the town itself - the reds in particular are glowing in the sun here. I like the boat as a foreground element - wonderful arrangement!

Technically first class photo with fantastic sharpness and light, excellent colors. I expected the typical Greek colors: white and blue, and here a surprise - an yellow town hall

What a superb image of this lovely place. The play of intensive colors is fantastic! Very well seen and presented from this selected POV. Thanks for sharing!

Laricostruzione total construction in the Dodecanese by the Italians (the Castle beautiful and great for the Knights of Malta in Rhodes) renovated caroprezzo still wonderful.
1912 Italian expelling the Ottomans from Rhodes and the British from Crete and Cyprus.
Excellent image of rare perfection and clarity and note relating to historical reality.

Hello dear Brian
Oooh la la. This is so pretty, so picturesque and beautifully realised. Your Greek shots are usually taken from up high, so this "sea level" shot is both unique and beautiful. The light quality and chromatic rendering are sensational and the photo style reminds me alot of Eric (Loook) and Denis (DTA's) work. And I mean that as a sincere compliment.
Thanks for sharing and I wish you a beautiful Sunday

Très belle photo de cette très jolie ville grecque "coincée" entre la montagne et la mer. La lumière, la beauté des couleurs, le cadrage et la qualité de l'image sont remarquables.

A wonderful composition with a splendid harbor POV, highlighting the remarkable building of the prefecture, the light with the warm colors of the evening is a delight and gives a lovely warmth to the image of the village and the brightness of the sea.
A beautiful photo, with the usual quality in your work.
Good start to the week.

Very beautiful, interesting and attractive picture! So many details to be seen and enjoyed: all those boats of all kinds, all those differente architectural details, the bare-looking nature in the background... everything truly pleases me!
TFS - congrats,
Have a great week,

And back to your beloved Greek islands!
A gorgeously colourful photograph of this lovely building taken in the most delicious low-angle warm light, the yellow, red and golden colours of the building making a fine backdrop to the colourful boats and also casting fine reflections on the water.
Lovely vibrant colours, perfect exposure and, as always, stunning details and sharpness.

You had perfect light here and managed a good composition with these boats in the fg and the vegetation less rocky bg.
an excellent exposure with fine details to view at the town.
