Autumn in the bay of Ayia Marina. Funny how there's always a lone boat in the scenery these days:) The last two days there were a lot of boats moored here and I wondered why. After the storm that sweeped the Aegean yesterday it became obvious. Today the weather is much better so sailboat and other kinds of cruises can carry on.
Thank you for visiting

You have a very beautiful autumn...here we have a lot of rain and cold...
Well taken scene, enjoy a nice day.

autunno o no, il luogo è sempre bellissimo, splendida luce, forse uno dei momenti più belli da godersi senza troppi turisti e senza l'afa estiva.

You took these picture nice out of the height.
We get a nice panoramic view about these area.
Colours and perspective are pleasant to look at.
Excellent composition, nice captured.
Very well done, TFS.

Yesterday's storm is about to approach the eastern Mediteranean probably late Friday here. But a sunny day allowed yet another wonderful photo over the beautiful bay and white windmill.
DOF, clarity and daylight well collected.

I think we have just received the storm.
Today, it is very windy and very wet!
This is a beautiful shot.
The f/g vegetation attracts attention and appears to be looking out to sea, guiding viewers in that direction. There are sharp, textured details to interest us, including the secretive windmill, until, at last, we see the focal, lone yacht.
Beautifully composed with nicely saturated colours.
Have a lovely day,

Your autumn looks a bit different than mine, but the colors are getting different, and I guess we all like that.
Great FG, and a good composition, as always.

A very attractive palette of colours here Ourania. I love the browns and dirty greens and the contrast they make to the blues. The small white mill and solitary boat create good points of interest and the slice of headland in the distance adds context to your well composed shot. Very nicely done. Warm regards Rosemary

This wide angle seaside view fits perfectly on vertical framing. Nice details from front to back. Autumn of Greece certainly looks different from autumn in Finland!

Nice pov on the blue sea, beautiful light and a composition well managed with windmill and baot, interesting and pleasant photo.
Sergiom (45888) 2013-10-02 5:27
J'aime beaucoup ce cadrage vertical qui apporte beaucoup de profondeur à la composition et qui pousse le regard vers le voilier qui vogue sur les eaux calmes de la baie.

You're capturing well this scene by a good composition and bright tone, so it's interesting and impressive to see white windmill and the sailing ship with elegant shape. The whole is harmonized well by beautiful color & light balance. And, the blue sea water draws out an additional good atmosphere, too.
Well done my friend.
Beside of this, today I found that my son Roman in Switzerland started posting to this gallery.
Can I ask you and your friends to give support to him? I'd happy to see more of his photos here (I'm staying at the present in Malaysia).
You can find Roman photos under:

Wish our autumn was like this instead of being cold, and wet with grey sky's most days. This is a very pleasant scene and you can see the autumnal colours beginning to change the colour of the land. The little solitary boat anchored just off the windmill creates an atmosphere of calmness .
holmertz (31580) 2013-10-02 8:54
This is more your usual style, and honestly I like this better than the "soldiers" ;-).
In fact this is a great composition which feels very well balanced in spite of being rather heavy on the right side. I think the twigs and branches in the foreground save the balance. Disregarding such aspects I just enjoy the view of the lone boat and the lone windmill, the rough rocks and the beautiful blue tones of the sea and the sky.

Wow! wonderful view of the coastline. Very well done. I love it. Very good management of colors, sharpness, clarity, perfect POV and DOF as well. Beautiful work.
All the best,

The vertical format was a good choice and the inclusion of the fg grasses and plants adds depth and partial framing. Good sharpness am=nd delightful warm cold color contrasts between the blue sea and sky and the yellow red hued cliffs. The lonely windmill in the mid distance makes a fine focal point. Tfs!

Hi Ourania, lovely view of this beautiful bay, beautifully captured in this good and nice photo. An interesting picture, romantic and nostalgic in a nice place at the end of summer, good shot, good sharpness, light and color. A great job well done, congratulations my friend. Thanks for sharing this beautiful work.
Good night and happy rest of week.
Best wishes from southern Spain.

Lep pogled na mesto u jesen ...
Dobra kompozicija i perspektiva, lepo pokazano mesto i trenutak, lepe boje.
Dobar rad, lepa priroda i mesto u jesen.
Prijatno vece i sve najbolje.
Nice view of the place in the fall ...
Good composition and perspective, nice place and time shown, beautiful colors.
Good work, beautiful nature and place in the fall.
Good evening and all the best.

una foto grandiosa.
Senza la tua particolare sensibilità un qualsiasi fotografo si sarebbe limitato a riprendere in orizzontale il paese, la barca, il mulino e qualche lembo di roccia, ma tu hai avuto l'intelligenza di scegliere un audace formato verticale e di includere i rovi e la roccia in primo piano facendoli diventare protagonistie relegando il resto nella parte alta del fotogramma.
Una scelta assai indovinata che ha reso il tutto molto più suggestivo integrando molto bene barca e mulino nell'ambiente circostante.
A questo, approfittando di una eccellente luminosità, hai sommato nitidezza ed un a colorazione brillante che aiuta a rendere il tutto ancor più pèiacevole.
Una bellissima ripresa. Complimenti.
Ciao e buona serata

hello, a nice one from Greece and this time not with blue-white composition which is very common in this part of the world. Nice vertical composition. Like the view. Excellent depth and sharpness with very well managed light. Superb one. Tfs.
fabbs99 (11420) 2013-10-02 23:21
Superb shot of the sea in warm colors.Excellent exposure and sharpness.Very well done,TFS.

Classic beauty in nature, and man made objects seem to actually compliment the natural scene, which is a rarity to say the least. In particular, I am drawn to the beautiful windmill, this structures in Greece are so unique, unlike any I've seen anywhere else. And as for the line boat, we have to admit that they add a lot to any composition. When I remember seeing painting programmes on tv as a child, there was always just one boat in the scene. Left imitating art I guess :)
Have a great day

Very good pov and perfect layout.
TFS and best regards

une très belle photo, bien composée avec une progression de plans dans la verticale, jusqu'au village.
Couleurs et contrastes sont bien gérés

Bravo et amitié

Très jolie composition , le format bien choisi, la vue sur le voilier, le moulin et le coté sauvage du paysage, très jolie
nikkitta (9205) 2013-10-04 12:48
Funny and plenty of charm to add at a capture are the little boats, till now I believe you waited for them to make a capture
Is very similar to one of Luciano, just saw what he said
Your composition is a charming one at the right with golden( Autumn) vegetation at the front, a beautiful windmill to add character and the very blue sea with lots of layers
Good work, congrats
Enjoy the week end
mcmtanyel (5556) 2013-10-04 17:31
Excellent photo because.... You guessed it, because I can see the color of the Autumn sun in it. Late September, early October sun has a certain color that I have recently come to pay attention to. I can see that color right here. That, combined with pretty scenery makes this a winner photo in my eyes. TFS!
Graal (92322) 2013-10-04 23:57
nice vertical composition and presentation of coast. Good POV and composition. Fine contrast, I like the windmill there. Leros is beautiful.
Have a nice WE.
Miguel82 (14598) 2013-10-06 4:56
So beautiful coastline view Ourania, your pov is a little bit dangerous nearby cliffs, a photo taken on a sunny day, good exposition and dof, I like the wind mill and the superb sailing boat in the bg, all the best, have a good sunday afternoon
delpeoples (48898) 2013-10-07 16:32
What a beautiful Autumn you are having, that golden light looks quite summery in its appearance and has illuminated everything in its path so magically. I like the vertical frame (my preferred cut) and the impressive depth of field you got using f/8. The coast and foreground foliage seem to naturally frame the photo, "giving it a hug" I like to call it :)
Warmest wishes, have a beautiful evening
