A neoclassical building of the beginning of the 20th century in Ayia Marina. It's been a family home, a summer house (originally and currently), has hosted services of the Municipality and even became headquarters of the German military command after the Battle of Leros was lost (1943).

A house with some history, Ourania.
Pic. taken well with red-wine color of the beautiful flowers, contrast superbly onto the blue sky and white edifice.
Kalimera, and best regards,

The flowers in foreground are the real eye catchers on these nice picture.
We get here a very good picture, taken out a very good angle.
Excellent composition, nice captured.
Very well done, TFS.

une belle présentation de cette maison surtout avec les branches fleuries que tu as pris soin d'inclure dans ta composition
Une belle lumière et un beau ciel bleu

A house with an interesting history. The blood ed flowers make an interesting and colourful frame contrasting well with the beige tones of the architecture. Good colour contrasts and excellent sharpness.

red-white-blue... The three colours made here a nice harmony. Nicely captured scene with fine light and eye catching colours. Very good one. Tfs.

The colors are wonderful in this picture! The flowers are a beautiful natural frame to the house in the background and the open sky helps a lot! Wonderful composition! Excellent job!

Hello Ourania ,
Attractive red fowers on the Fg . For this effective combination of colors with the white building and the blue sky in the BG .

Interesting note, and lovely photo. Great way to show a building and lovely flowers all in one image. Excellent framing (as always....)

For so many people in so many places, red white and blue is so iconic a color combination, and for me it certainly works beautifully in photography. Your angle is very creative too, showing the house almost as a hidden place that we feel privileged to see. The sky is wonderful too, tho light delicate flowers. Thanks for sharing.

Lovely composition, a charming closeup to the red flowers. Well taken, nice idea.
Have a good night.

tu hai il potere non solo di incantarmi con il tuo perfetto italiano, ma con le tue belle foto spesso molto ispirate come questa che proponi oggi , tutta basata sulla ricchezza dei colori che dominano il fotogramma: il rosso della bouganville, il bianco dell'edificio e l'azzurro del cielo della Grecia.
Un tripudio ed una sintesi dell'estate che si svolge nel tuo bel paese che traspare da questo bellissimo scatto che io reputo un elogio all'estate e ai suoi bei colori, un altro bellissimo esempio della tua squisita sensibilità.
Ciao e buona serata

che belli questi fiori rossi contro il palazzo bianco.
Se riamevi qui non avresti potuto avere il piacere di gustarti queste cose.
La vita fa ciò che vuole e ci trasporta con se, pensiamo di poterla modificare, ma è solo utopia.

You've got lovely colors here. Predominantly, red, (off) white and blue. I am also impressed by the DOF, most of the flowers in the f/g are in focus, as well as the house and the palm tree. Excellent work!
To answer your question: Fortunately for me, cars in PA do not have license plates in the front. So, I did not have to worry about it. I have seen others blur the license plates, though. I think that would be an acceptable way of "changing reality."

Dear Ourania, vivid colors in your composition, these bougainvillea pink flowers matches well with the blue of the sky. Clear shot with good exposition
A brillant picture, have a good day
abmdsudi (50504) 2013-09-18 7:39
This intriguing newly painted old house has quite a history then, a lovely balanced shot enhanced by the lush red blooms framing the fg. The frontal lighting on the building works so making the house stands out even more against the dark blue sky. This is a wonderful composition and gives interest but I love the Red White Blue combination here only to show complementary colors at work! Well done, Congrats.
krzychu30 (15512) 2013-09-18 11:00
magnificent composition,colors and of course perspective.All these things make your shot really exceptional.But for me the most captivating thing is definitely contrast between these red flowers,blue sky and the white facade.
You were able to combine all these three things to achieve so superb visual effect!
Wish You a nice evening
mirosu (15972) 2013-09-19 3:35
What a glorious colorful shot depicting the nature beauty and its peacefulness with the glowing reds catching the attention together with the contrasting white house adding the overall beauty to the image. I really like the POV and the composition as well as the colours and pin-sharp details. Indeed a very poignant image so well planned and shot delightfully. Great work my friend. Wish you a very nice day.

Ciao Ourania, POV originale ed efficace, bella composizione coi fiori in primo piano, ottima nitidezza, fantastici colori brillanti e splendida luce, brava, ciao Silvio

Fantastic arm vs cold colour contrasts between the blue sky and red flowers. A well exposed white facade of the bg building too with perfect sharpness and density yet still with good shadow detail and exposure on the highlights. A nice upward pov on the colorful bougainvillea flowers and house. Tfs!

ΚΑΛΗΜΕΡΑ Ourania !!!
What is the name of that flower? This name is Bougainvillea, isn't it? The red flowers look very so beautiful. You really want to get to very clear picture!!!
Weather is glorious... Fantastic capture.
