A view into the bay of Blefoutis, northern Leros. This picture, too, was taken on the day with the funny lighting and while this side is in the shade of a passing cloud, the opposite shore lies in the sunshine. The exit of the bay is to the right and the main beach just across this vantage point, framed by the two first sailboats.
This is my first upload in 1200p.
Thank you for visiting, a lovely Sunday to all

Beautiful bay area scenery, with blue tones variable with light upon.
The scattered houses on the hills, can tell about the way people live there, with private area for each.
The two youngsters in orange matching blouses, contrast and scale against the vast landscape.
Fine shot, well applied.

A fine expansive view across the bay. I like the presence of the two men in red tops; they offer some contrasting splashes of colour and give depth to the scene. A pleasantly lit image with good colours and sharpness.

The larger size really allows us to examine the small details more closely. In this case there is a lot to see on the far side of the bay that could go unnoticed at 800 pixels. As for the foreground you composed it well with the two brightly dressed boys as the obvious focus of attention. I guess they were the main reason for you to take this picture, even though the view as such is very fine on its own. Bright clothes really make a difference.

1200x900 or 1200x833 give wonderful pictures, more details than the small pictures or formerly.
We get a wonderful image with a lot colours
Wonderful picture taken out of a wonderful angle.
Very well composition and nice panoramic view about these area.
Excellent done, TFS.
Have a nice weekend,

I like how you captured the small bay with nice blue sea water from excellent high angle viewpoint. The blue-brown color contrast is also very good and the light excellent. Nice to see the two men in front, adding nice life to the scene. Well done. Wish you a very nice Sunday. Greetings Miro

J'aime beaucoup cette photo car elle raconte une histoire. Les deux jeunes hommes qui regardent le paysage en ont long à se raconter. Au loin les voiliers sont beaux ainsi que les maisons sur la colline.

Joli point de vue dominant malgré le ciel légèrement voilé
La présence humaine donne un intéressant point d'intéret sur la composition
PS pourquoi pas de photo de toi sur FB ? :)
carlo62 (19455) 2013-08-25 8:39
il luogo è senza dubbio molto bello e la tua composizione è di ottima fattura, i due punti rossi sono un'incredibile attrattiva e spiccano nel paesaggio circostante.

I know what you mean by funny light, and I have to say, it's a type of light I love. When the clouds are acting like this, the scene seems to change by the second creating so many variations for the photographer. Your choice here is beautiful, with the foreground in shade and the distance well lit, it makes a very fine lighting across the entire scene. Another beautiful part of your country, one of those images that makes me wish I was standing there in person. Thanks as always for sharing, have a great week ahead.
All the best

Ουρανία, οι γυμνοί λόφοι και μετά το πράσινο χαμηλά και η επέκταση στο γαλάζιο νερό ειναι μια πολύ όμορφη αντίθεση τοσο φυσική οσο και χρωματική. Ηρεμη και χαλαρή καλοκαιρινή εικόνα πού πάντα θυμίζει το όμορφη νησί σου αλλά και τήν Ελλάδα μας!
σ' ευχαριστω για τα καλά σου λόγια!

Interesting composition where you manage to show at the back the landscape with sun while on this side, FG, is darker
You add color with the boys wearing orange t shirts
Like the colors of the sea in quite different layers
Have a great week ahead
All the best

A very cute little bay, this reminds me of how Bitez (near Bodrum) was in the early 70s. Good framing, pretty scene. The red T-shirts add nice spots of red on top of the bay.
fabbs99 (11148) 2013-08-25 20:16
Excellent view of the bay surrounded by hills with scanty vegetation.The presence of the two young boys adds to the charm of the scene.Very well done.TFS.
abmdsudi (32509) 2013-08-25 21:47
Specks of red in the foreground add perspective into the compo as good lead into the sweeping view over the bay into the far background in a rather almost flat diffuse lighting. A decent record but you had to work with what was there when conditions are against you. it's a factual image and It records the appearance and all the clichés that actually make an interesting image, one that draws the eye in and invites it to explore. Congrats.

Ουρανία γεια σου,
όμορφη παρουσίαση από τον ήρεμο και γαλήνιο κόλπο του Μπλεφούτη με τους δύο νεαρούς που φορούν τα πολύχρωμα φανελακια τους,να δημιουργούν ένα εξαιρετικό κοντραστ στο όλο σκηνικό.Εαν επεξεργασόσουν τα χρώματα στο βάθος του λόφου,όπως στο μπροστινό μέρος της φωτογραφίας,το αποτέλεσμα θα ήταν κατά την γνώμη πολύ πιό εντυπωσιακό.

Hi Ourania. Great environment for boys (and girls if the boys allow them to join) to have an adventure.So much room to roam, explore- all in the fresh, clean air. Lovely vista and attractive colours. The orange of the boys gives a nice accent to the foreground. Best regards. Klaudio.

Hi Ourania ,
What a joy it is to look at these beautiful photographs from Leros where the scenery is just stunning. A beautiful landscape shot looking towards the opposite shoreline with the green trees and magnificent mountains in the background. Lovely composition.
