I tried a low shooting angle to include these colourful red geraniums in a shot of Megísti also known as Kastellorizo, on the island of the same name with a population of around 500 people. Meis is the Turkish name for the island and it lies just a couple of kilometres off the coast of Turkey near Kas. A mosque sans loudspeakers can be seen in the bg harbour entrance.

A pretty and well conceived composition. Superb control over depth of field complemented by excellent light and colours.

Good evening Chris,
Striking colors undr bright daylight, well collected scene. The DOF is outstanding, no focus differentials between the plant-pots and the distant waterfront houses across the bay.

Hello Chris - I like y0ur idea here and I think the result is good. The red geranium contrasts attractively with the blue sky and I am struck by the way the flower and its pot echo the colour of the dome and roof tiles in the houses along the shoreline.
The light and wide expanses of blue give the image a nice airy look which appeals to me.

Superb luminosity and colours and also a real nice looking place! You composed the image well with the flower pot as an eye catcher!

You had a good idea to use the flower pot to frame the scene. The distance between the flower pot and the buildings is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details, the colors of the flowers and of the buildings. The good luminosity is enhancu=ing the beauty of the colors. Have a nice day.

Très joli photo avec le pot de géraniums en premier plan et une grande netteté sur le village coloré dans le fond. Pas de doute nous sommes bien en Grèce!

Le climat chaud n'est peut-être pas très favorable pour les géraniums mais ce premier plan est quand même le bienvenu dans ta composition. Jolie mise en image de ce village typique.

Bonjour, cher Chris,
Charmante invitation à découvrir ce petit village accroché à la colline.
Joli choix de cadrage également.
Les couleurs et les détails ressortent magnifiquement.

The geraniums are a little bit passed, but the pot is perfect for my garden, two month ago is everything stole out of my garden!
Excellent panorama view about these area.
Lovely composition, nice presentation.
Sharpness and clarity are perfect.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice weekend,

A beautifully composed shot, very sharp, great detail, good depth, very sharp colours.

I didn't know that there was a Greek island that close to Kaş. Is there a boat connection between the island and the mainland?
The houses look very beautiful, a bit like the houses on Symi, I think. Here we also see a mosque with a beautiful red dome.
A picture with excellent depth. Nice inclusion of the flowerpot with geraniums. The plant apparently can not stand the hot Mediterranean climate.
Best regards, Paul

Beautiful shot, like a post card, the inclusion of the geranium in the pot really adds depth to the image and enhances the composition. The warm light give a feeling of relaxing and summery mood.
