The Blue Star 2 is leaving the little port of Ayia Marina after a rare stop. It only comes here a couple of times a year, when strong west winds obstruct its arrival at the port of Lakki. It's even rarer to see it in Ayia Marina in the afternoon as the ferry that connects Leros with Pireaus and other islands of the Dodecanese usually arrives in the evening or the early hours.
Leaving the bay of Ayia Marina, it's going to turn to the right heading to Kos and then Rhodes.
Thank you for visiting

from this low POV the ferry looks really impressive!I like your composition(and not only the ferry),but also FG with the part of the pier and the sea(great colors of it and structures made by the leaving ferry).
The graphics of the image appeals to me much!(for me looks like it would be HDR)
Nicely composed and executed shot!
Have a nice day

The ferry set out to sea, on her voyage between the islands: An impressive dynamic photo. People on deck gave scale to it's mighty size and height.
Seawater in blue was turbolent by the wakes of it's underwater propellers.
Fine shot, good clarity and light on a winter day.

Ferries are yet always a very interesting transport means.
I use very regular these ferries but a lot smaller here in Ghent.
Sharpness and clarity be superb.
Excellent composition, nice presentation.
Very well done, TFS.

A shot with great depth depicting a carrier pulling away from the adjacent berth and superbly split by some wonderful looking clouds and blue water. Great picture of what must be such a skilled task, manoeuvring a ship of that dimension. The bit of warm light filtering thru' is sublime with lovely soft shadows and colour palette. A well done shot, Congrats

Very good low POV, making the boat more imposing! And the texture of the water surface is excellent! Beautiful job!

una bella foto ricca di dinamismo e di bei colori, il tutto inserito in una bella cornice che mette in particolare il soggetto, inserendolo in un contesto di grande fascino.
Una ottima realizzazione, per la quale ti faccio i miei complimenti
Ciao e buona giornata

Ta photo montre très bien l'ambiance des départs . Pour les traversiers grecs , c'est chose commune et journalière mais il y a toujours un petit moment de pincement au coeur de voir partir ces mastodontes pleins de gens. Le cadrage est excellent.

nicely captured shot. Interesting POV. Like the mood of departuring... Low angle emphasise the boat's presence. A nicely composed shot. Tfs.

You really captured the sense of the sheer size of this boat, it looks huge! I am not sure if it’s the lower viewpoint, but it’s a great effect. A vey nice way to show the island connections as we look across the sea to its next port of call. And I thought Blue Star Ferries were only in Hong Kong
All the best

These large ferries are not really beautiful, but they are quite impressive, especially when seen from this kind of perspective where it looks like squeezed into a fairly narrow bay. Even in this relatively sheltered bay there is a clear indication of a rough sea, which I suppose explains the drastic change of schedule. You have, once again, taken a photo with perfect colours and a very balanced compositin.
Miguel82 (14464) 2013-08-29 11:06
Nice view of that big ferry, I can see that you didn't take it! The sea color is magnificent and the hill in the bg as well, Greece has so many islands, so ferries should be natural to see for you, an informative shot I appreciate with an excellent pov
fabbs99 (11126) 2013-08-29 11:20
This is a massive vessel and looks like another Titanic.Very nice perspective and good framing, nice colors and depth, excellent overall quality in this shot.Keep sharing.

I like your picture with this huge boat as main subject. The light is superb. Splendid color of the water.

Hello dear Ourania,
Nice capture of this departing Ferry. I've seen them often in Symi and in Rhodes.
Dark cloudy summer sky creates a perfect background.
TFS and best regards

Ciao Ourania, bella col grande traghetto che lascia Leros e la gente che gurda con mostalgia la magnifica isola che si allontana, magnifico il movimento delle onde, splendida luce e bei colori naturali, brava, ciao Silvio

Ουρανία καλησπέρα, μου αρέσει το όνομα τους και μου αρέσει να τα βλέπω να πηγαινοέρχονται στις Κυκλάδες μας..εγω είχα πάει στην Μήλο και ήταν υπέροχα στο κατάστρωμα..μου αρέσει πολύ η φωτογραφία σου πού τήν πήρες απο χαμηλά και δείχνει μια πολύ όμορφη αντίθεση με το νερο και τον ουρανό!
η δουλειά σου είναι αξιόλογη και πολύ καλαίσθητη και σε συγχαίρω!

What a lovely and also worrisome sight! Lovely because the dark-blue and white vessel looks so nice on the blue waters of the Aegean. It is worrisome because the vessel looks too huge to make the turn. I am sure, if it comes here on a quasi-regular basis, it should be fine. A very handsome vessel in a lovely corner of the world, TFS!

leaving the harbor on a ferry is always very interesting and exciting. You have captured the situation very well. I like the composition very much with the coast in the background. And the colors are really very beautiful. My compliments!
SnapRJW (23656) 2013-08-30 7:33
Hello Ourania - This is a well considered composition. Your vantage point has provided the shot with wonderful textures in the FG and the movement on the sea is superb. The ferry looks huge and quite stately as it leaves port carrying its passengers. I love moving between islands by ferry, it's such an exciting way to travel. Beautiful shot. Warm regards Rosemary
saxo042 (33926) 2013-08-30 8:01
You are apparently standing very close to the sea surface. The upward look enhances the size of this ship and makes it even more impressive. The rough water surface is well captured, with perfect sharpness.
Robert1969 (6650) 2013-09-02 22:14
Nice rough surrounding. Point of view and
the composition are great: the picture has
a lots of depth. Light managament is also
great. A nice extra is the sky: that fits
macjake (45588) 2013-09-07 3:05
I remember seeing this photo a few days ago but i must have forgotten to give you credits for it.
this is a very powerful image.
I really like seeing the water because it looks so deep even at the edge in the lower fg.
and of course the ship has a powerful presence too.
very cool shot!
adores (30831) 2013-09-09 18:00
Your low pov so close to the water makes it more impressive. I like the movement of the water and the ferry seems so huge. A good shot, with good composition, sharpness and atmosphere. It's a good shot!

wow! Davvero ottima, inquadratura dal basso che esalta la maestosità di questo gigante del mare… davvero bella!
