Looking at the rising full moon from Alinda.
This is the first picture I took that evening with my camera resting on the low stone wall separating the beach from the road.
Last year I posted another picture taken a little later that evening and from another point of view, to the left (the beach and the wall are very long:) I'm posting that picture again in the workshop because I've now managed to render it in much better quality thanks to the new upload limits and -once again- to Valter's (bayno's) help who suggested the means of reducing noise.
Thank you for visiting

Ciao Ourania,non è mai facile catturare la luna su un paesaggio senza bruciarla,hai fatto un capolavoro di esposizione senza perdere il dettaglio sul resto,il mare sembra un tappeto blu morbido morbido,grande atmosfera e colori....buona giornata! Luciano

Marvelous evening shot with the rising moon. Hidden in your archives for a year...
fine blue tone on blue hour, good clear view and DOF till far as the other side of the bay. Noise reduction well done, my friend, cheers.

An image full of atmosphere. I like the composition which makes for a pleasing juxtaposition between the boat and the moon. Perfectly exposed and with good colours and sharpness.

Both pictures are very pleasant and a lot better that you previous picture.
Technical perfect made, the blue sea and the white moon are excellent contrast against each other.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice day,

What a beautiful night picture on Alinda bay, the moon gives some light, I like the blue-night color of the sea
A superb composition
Have a nice day

The matching colour contrast of blue and white work best here in pretty night shot and the full moon lit boosts the overall impact too. It's well taken shot with good definition and speck of red in the fg makes this image pop even more with lots of positives to enjoy. This is something special, in particular I love the balance exposure that you managed so well, and thanks to your sturdy hand held shot as all appear to be so sharp. Such a special romantic moment captured marvelously, Congrats

such tranquility with the curving skyline with the boat and new risen moon balancing each other in a sea of blue,ah,just lovely.

it´s like we emerged in blue paradise!I love these different blue tones,which make the scene so captivating.With no people in the frame and the Moon in the distance you were able to create really unique,tranquill mood of the scene.
It has something dreamy in itself!
Have a nice day

Une belle réussite car la lumière de l'heure bleue est sur le point de se noircir définitivement. La blancheur de l'embarcation aide à bien la voir. La lune est superbe à l'arrière plan.

Excellent sea scape. I like the outstanding blue tones and the superb blue-white color contrast. Well done. Greetings, Miro

Hi Ourania ,
What a beautiful scene with the moon just beginning to rise over the island and the sea. Nice rich saturated colours and an excellent composition making up this superb shot.

Avec la lune en fond quelle vue et iamge sueprbe et ce découpage de falaises et le bleu avec ce bâteau quelle iamge et cpatage sueprbe.
Bravo et amitié

A well balanced composition where the moon and the boat act as balance to each other. The twin peaks of the hills are also a good part of the picture. The red parts of the boat are very important too, cover them and notice what effect they have in the picture. Very dark blue clours are beautiful, but they really need sonething to provide an accent.
yquem46 (35290) 2013-08-21 7:54
Strong colors and contrast, the moon as a bonus !
have a nice evening, best regards
holmertz (31226) 2013-08-21 8:45
Here's another brilliant composition from your camera. The blue hour colours are magnificent and the composition is very well balanced. There is a diagonal going from the red and white boats through the two red buoys and up to the almost perfect full moon. Despite the relative darkness the white buildíngs lining the two hills shine like lamps.

un'Isola di Leros dai colori magiciche incanta per la sua bellezza!
Un ottimo scatto molto ben curato nella composizione e nel colore, notevole anche per la nitidezza che valorizza il bel soggetto.
Ciao e buona serata

Hello dear Ourania,
Amazing blue houre capture from Leros. The rising fullmoon adds avery special note to your compo.
TFS and have a good evening
carlo62 (19333) 2013-08-21 14:50
ci sono sempre molti modi per fotografare lo stesso luogo, tu ci hai offerto varie visioni di Leros e questa è un'ulteriore prova delle tue qualità di fotografa e della bellezza di questo posto.

Hi dear Ourania
Wow again so fantastic image of great panfocus shot. So moody and nostalgic shot, you well captured the light twilight atmosphere. Small full moon and unity of deep blue are so artstic to see.
Thanks for you sharing. I will go back to home tonight, Takero

I like both of these photos, the main entry and the one in the workshop. I have a slight preference for the one in the workshop, though. I think the reasons are 1) it's closer up, 2) since it was later, more lights had turned on 3) although it was later, it looks sharper.
At any rate, both are nice and I am glad you included the one in the workshop.

All the best,

Γειά σου Ουρανία,
η μπλε ώρα σε όλο της το μεγαλείο!
πολύ όμορφη φωτό με το σκάφος στο πρώτο πλάνο να σπάει κάπως την μονοτονία του μπλε,πολύ καλός και ο φωτισμός επίσης,
Noel_Byrne (13234) 2013-08-22 6:57
The sea looks like deep blue silk here, beautiful! The touch of light from the moon, perfectly placed in the frame is really wonderful too, and the boat is composed in the shot really well. I can almost hear the music drift across the sea...
thanks as always

Ciao Ourania, hai gestito benissimo la poca luce che era rimasta creando un mood romantico dalle favolose tonalità cobalto, la luna poi è una chicca e perfettamente definita nei suoi contorni...ottima l'inquadratura...buona serata,
fabbs99 (11030) 2013-08-22 21:56
Really a avery romantic place to be in with the full moon in the BG ,a cute little boat in blue sea waters and houses looking like specks between the hills.Very well done.TFS.
Didi (51263) 2013-08-23 8:51
Très bon contrôle de l'exposition à l'heure bleue, je note une intéressante profondeur d'image par l'avant-plan
La lune était la bienvenue ici
eldancer1 (20728) 2013-09-04 7:54
This scene look so tranquil and beautiful with the full moon rising over the horizon, and with a promise of a beautiful evening. You captured the mood very well and I love the colors. Very well done, tfs.
