A scene seen yesterday in Pandeli. The tables of the restaurant are placed on the beach and the gentleman had probably arrived on one of the yachts that were moored in the little harbour. My vantage point is a little jetty where I had walked to get a closer look at the boats tied at its edge. When I turned to go back to the beach, I saw this scene.
Thank you for visiting

i due punti rossi sono molto belli nel contesto della foto, ma devo dire che mi sarebbe piaciuta di pi¨ senza la parte alta della foto che, secondo me, distrae l' osservatore.
La bella e caratteristica taverna con il suo colorato avventore, Ŕ giÓ molto bella senza nessuna aggiunta. Ovviamente Ŕ una mia interpretazione, la foto rimane splendida in ogni caso.

Very nice capture.
How did you manage too see the little red spot in the upper corner??

It is painted a very particular colour this taverna and no doubt attracts many visitors during the season. I like the framing, this combined with the placing of the different elements makes for an attractive well balanced composition. The image benefits from a pleasant ambient light and has very good colours and sharpness. Sorry, but for some reason the system is not allowing me any green smilies today, no idea why.

hello, an interesting composition. The red points are really attracting between such sky blue surrounding. Very well spotted. Excellent light and sharpness. Very good depth. Like the lazy mood of holiday. Tfs.

Hi Ourania ,
Nice to see that you are still getting good weather compared to what we are getting here at this time of year in N. Ireland. Love the calmness of the scene one man sitting at the table reading the newspaper in the morning sun. My idea of heaven. Nice pale colours of the Taverna and in contrast the two vivid red spots in the frame.

A touch of red never destroys a picture, especially here with the quite uniformly blue background. I like the balance here with the two different red spots in the corners. An interesting building and a very pleasant picture with the man enjoying his paper in this nice cafÚ

Hi Ourania, good view of this interesting scene of daily life in the harbor taverna, very well captured in this good and interesting photograph. A nice picture with good sharpness, light and color. Very good and nice job well done, congratulations my friend. Thanks for sharing this interesting work.
Good night and happy rest of week.
Warm greetings from southern Spain.

You found a great combination of colours on this sunny day. The red details connect the foreground and the background very nicely, but there are also interesting varieties of blue in the chairs, the walls and the man's clothes. It's a fine snapshot from your islands which seems to be getting empty now that the tourists have left.

Ciao Ourania, deliziosa scena, magnifici colori mediterranei, ottima nitidezza e splendida luce, brava, ciao Silvio

I think you are right, I have looked around and I don't see other any purely red object in the whole frame. I like those (almost) diagonally placed red spots in predominantly blue surroundings. Well seen and skillfully presented.
Thank you for your explanation of what you like about "An Unlikely Entry." May I ask if you have any formal training photography? You are quite articulate in your evaluations of photos. Thanks!

This is a lovely image of the restaurant in a lovely bluish gray tone.The gentleman sitting with the magazine and the presence of an anchor behind the glass panes make it a great scene.Very well done.TFS.

Yes dear Ourania,
Contrast of the two red spots are much notable on image, which has a wonderful light-purple tone of the Taverna and light-blue color of the chairs & table.
The man sit and enjoy the morning sun on waterfront, added a life element to the whole wondeful image.

red jacket and the curtain in the window makes really two captivating and eye-catchin gfocal points in your composition.But there┤s much more I like about your picture.First of all I like its leisurely,relaxing mood you┤ve captured so well.The man sitting at the table and reading a newspaper conveys nicely these feelings.
It┤s excellently observed daily-life shot combined with some interesting architectural elements.
Wish You a nice day

I was yesterday punished, why, I don't know!
I could not give green smileys to the members.
Everything is blue white as colour.
Nice old fašade with lovely place in foreground for drinking a cup of coffee.
Excellent cityscape, with perfect sharpness and clarity
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice day,

Well spotted dailylife- street scene on a quiet day, and lovely to see on how the small stinging vivid colour triggers all the visual sense, being parts of the bigger perspective. It's a happy shot documenting the brief moment showing what the local does in their daily life in just casual mood and the composition works so well with the surroundings he's in, at the same time this provides a nice constant link into the prominent background structure which is easy on the eye. I love mood, the exposure and colours too. A fine observational capture and well spotted chance. Great shot, Congrats, TFS

Hello dear Ourania
Typical end summer scene perfect captured!
TFS and best regards

The soft pastel colors of this work so nicely, and create an air of relaxation that is really appropriate to the man relaxing in the sun. I see both red spots too :) Very nice daily life and architectural shot.

Ουρανία γεια σου,
πολύ όμορφη και χαρακτηριστική Φθινοπωρινή φωτογραφία από την σχεδόν κλειστή ταβέρνα του Πατιμένου,αλήθεια τι επώνυμο! Εξαιρειτκό το φως με τον γέροντα να είναι αφοσιωμένος στην ανάγνωση της εφημερίδας του.
nikkitta (9023) 2013-10-11 10:08
A Greek tavern and not white? must be quite original, at least the chairs are painted blue
A charming scene with the man so absorbed reading the news
Good to add the red curtain to match with the men jacket
Congrats, wish you to enjoy the weather in your nice country

The dual warm cold colour contrasts between the red and blue are well captured in this striking image. The seated man at the Taverna animates the shot. Fantastic, colour, saturation and sharpness and the vertical frame suits perfectly. Have a nice weekend!
