Old, new, ruined, under construction... The "urban" side of Leros with houses very close if not attached to each other, families sharing daily life and children growing up together. Some houses open only in the summer, though, family homes of people who live away now or summer houses of foreign friends of the island. It's hard to tell where a neighbourhood ends and where the next one begins. Here we see parts of Christos and Pandeli.
Thank you for visiting

Nice close up to the buildings. I like the simple but attractive architecture. Well taken.

buildings, buildings, buildings... You framed it superbly with a lot of buildings... Interesting idea, nicely executed. With f/10 you achieved a nice depth. The colours are eye catchini. Light is perfect and sharpness is superb. A nice shot indeed. Tfs.

your composition shows excellently not only the beauty of Leros architecture,but also its unique and picturesque location on the slopes.Buildings in different styles and in different shapes,but one have they in common-all are very picturesque!
Nicely composed and close-up urban scene.
Have a nice day

There is a single red roof-top hut in this picture, all houses kept the same style and colors when built.
A fine view of the houses, balconies and roof-tops verandas. Maybe, to my humble opinion, a wider scope would show more of the bulit area on the island.
anyway, nice idea for subject.

interesting the fragment of city. Good shot from fine POV.Fine vertical format and composition. Houses on hill like on stairs. Nice architecture and calm autumnal mood.
Have a nice day.

Great close-up on this interesting mix of buildings. I like the absence of the sky, which makes for an effective and harmonious colour palette. Excellent clarity.

Hi dear Ourania, how are you?
I am just back from 1 week trip. Sorry for my late reply. Another tasteful and fantatsic image of nice cropping. I like this meaningful color touch by getting soft sunlight so much. Another attractive Greece image!
Thanks a lot for your sharing and have a good day! Takero

I like the graphical shapes and compressed perspective of this shot along with the contrasting colours. Together it has an underlying mosaic like aspect.

Interesting and attractive picture specially for its vertical format, chosen pov, composition and management of light!
TFS - congrats,

Two neighbourhoods but almost the same houses and facades.
Panoramic view with depth and perspective.
Sharpness and clarity make these picture very attractive
Very well composition, TFS.
Have a nice weekend,

J'aime beaucoup ce plan très serré sur la ville. Il semble aplatir l'image et lui donne un beau petit côté graphique des plus intéressants. La lumière qui fait resplendir les couleurs est des plus belles.

This combination of white and mustard colored buildings is really beautiful, and something once again new to my eyes! I have to say, I love the idea of the close connection of communities, way too many people in Ireland live miles from the neighbors and children never have a chance to make friends around their homes. I imagine the sense of community here would be extremely strong. Wonderful idea to fill the whole frame with these cool buildings.
Have a great weekend.

Hello Ourania - I love the way these houses seem to be piled one atop the other. The colourful facades harmonise and although all seem to have flat roofs and a similar boxy shape they each have touches of individuality. A super composition, although we cannot 'see' the actual context your shot conveys the steep rise in the land very well. Have a great weekend. Rosemary

I suppose like any other photographer you take lots of pictures you wouldn't dream of showing in public, but I almost get the impression that wherever you point your camera you manage to find a good composition. Here you have found colours that are well matching, you have chosen a vertical frame that suits the way the buildings are climbing up the hill, you have cropped the picture quite tightly to leave possibly distracting details outside. These are basic things, really, but not everyone can do it.
Kind regards, and enjoy your weekend.

A beautiful crop using tele lenses. I like the light and specific architecture. Good result!
mesutilgim (73080) 2013-08-23 12:36
Hello dear Ourania,
The architecture is quite similar to those in Symi.
Very nice capture with perfect layout.
TFS and have a nice weekend
frunchy (1517) 2013-08-23 13:04
very good use of Long focal length, it puts all These buildings so Close together. The Colors look natural.
IMO it could use a Little sharpness.
TFS, best regards, F.

Πολύ όμορφη η λήψη σου.Τα κιτρινα και άσπρα σπίτια μου θυμίζουν τα γαλανόλευκα που συνάντησα στην όμορφη Μήλο.Πολύ καλό το θέμα που διάλεξες και πολύ καλός φωτισμός.Συγχαρητήρια.

The colored rectangles in the thumbnail give the illusion of an abstract work of art. The full size reveals that it is not abstract, but it is still art!
abmdsudi (32577) 2013-08-23 20:30
This unique traditional dwellings look so compact and compressed perspective seemingly very tight place without breathing space yet not losing any of the detail highlights. Impressive old town image with clusters of houses filling the tight frame and it seems that every inch is occupied not wasted but certainly conveys that special charm and uniqueness with brownish being the dominant trademark traditional color so well preserved. A quite astonishing shot with its almost identical tones, amounts of extensive details you have put in all are blended in together harmoniously creating such a beautiful effect that appeal to the eyes. It's beautifully taken, Well done.

Although the framing seems perhaps too tight, it exalts the interaction of the shapes and perspectives of the architecture and makes a very fine composition with the uniform buildings. There's wonderful sense of depth and very good lighting. The play of light and harmonious color tones is very delightful to watch. Well done. Wish you a very nice weekend. Greetings, Miro

forme geometriche e colori, un bel mix pieno di particolari, come i due tappeti stesi con gli stessi colori delle case.
fabbs99 (11252) 2013-08-24 22:42
This is a splendi shot with excellent sharpness.Well done .

Ciao Ourania, gran bel taglio stretto sulle deliziose casem, otima nitidezza, splendida luce e magnifici colori, brava, ciao Silvio
PaulVDV (17359) 2013-08-25 3:04
Only a thin line formed by the trees divides both neighbourhoods but the houses have similar colours and shapes.
A remarkable cube shape.
You looked for a good POV to show us all these houses with their front facade.
I guess they're all built facing the sea.
Best regards, Paul
Miguel82 (14536) 2013-08-26 4:26
I like the view of that type of architecture Ourania,
Yellow and white colors and roofs with terraces adaptated to high temperatures during summer season
Clear shot with good pov
jemaflor (74166) 2013-08-26 9:07
Good pov on these houses, nice light and colors contrast, well presented, tfs.
gervaso (9247) 2013-08-26 9:36
Unless there is a problematic neighbour there, it must be good living like that, althougn there is not much privacy! The framing is excellent to show the neighbourhood, and the colors always in the same pattern make it a beautiful district. Very good job!
nikkitta (9053) 2013-08-27 14:06
How very creative to compose and crop the capture showing a wide range of buildings in a mix of white and yellow colors
Windows always green
The white ones must be the new ones, I suppose
There are also balconies
Interesting to watch, well done, congrats
You call me always that way

Hello Ourania, i like the rythem of lines and an interesting note,
