Walking along the seafront of Lakki. In the distance three of the landmarks of the town that was created from scratch during the occuation of the Dodecanese (1912-1943) according to the principles of Italian Rationalism: the clock tower, Hotel Leros (permanently under reconstruction) and the cinema-theatre.

mi sembrano già così lontane queste giornate....
Bellissimo taglio verticale, ben composto, con la curva del lungomare che ci aiuta a percorrere la foto rimanendo in bilico tra il blu del mare e del cielo.
Un vero e proprio invito a fare una passeggiata.

Attractive promenade at the sea side. I like the colors and the wonderful sunny day. Well taken scene.

The seafront curves very nicely along the view here and all the red poles are accentuating the curve. A nice inclusion of people on holiday. This looks like a very pleasant place to spend a holiday indeed.

The curve on the seafront promenade gave excelent depth to the scenery. A place on the waterfront to take a stroll at any hour of a day, like the tourists on picture. Good light managed, beautiful day it was.
Lovely island of yours.

excellent walking path by the sea. Great composition using the diagonal. Like the perspective created by your chosen POV. Superb clarity and depth. A very good one.

Good light, good colours and another good composition. The road makes a very elegant curve along the bay, and the nicely tiled pavement and well designed railings give the composition good depth. It was a good idea to have the two tourists, enjoying the last few days of the season, meeting us halfway. The photo radiates a warm and pleasant atmosphere but also gives us a sad reminder that we won't enjoy this kind of view again for a long time, at least not in Europe.

J'aime le point de vue bas qui donne de la profondeur à la composition. Le couple qui vient dans ta direction est un beau point focal. La lumière est superbe sur les murs blancs des maisons.

It is always a pleasure to view your photos as it brings a touch of warmth from the Greek Islands in these cold winter months. Today is no exception with the couple strolling along the sun kissed promenade in shorts with sunglasses. Good depth with your POV looking along the curve of the promenade. Colours and lighting of this beautiful place make the perfect scene.

Un lieu de promenade agréable, de beaux détails du sol, la perspective, la lumière est divine, l'arrivée du couple complète joliment cette belle image

nelle tue foto è quasi sempre pre
sente il mare con le sue acque limpide e trasparenti. In questa però il motivo dominante è questa passeggiata lungo le sue rive delineata da una bella balaustra che con il suo colore rosa prende il sopravvento sugli altri elementi e aiuta a creare una bella composizione nella quale colore e forme si fondono molto bene, il tutto illuminato da una bella luce, la stessa luce forte e calda che le isole greche sanno offrire ai propri abitanti.
Ciao e buona notte.

Hi dear Ourania
Sorry for my late reaction.
widefocus and vertical setting makes great effcet again. panfocus + F8 creates so deep exposure zones, that are so fantastic and adds impression of deep image. This is your signitured image again!
All the best and have a good day! Takero from TOKYO

This photo is a balm to my soul, especially since the temperatures have dropped below freezing around here, in New Castle. It is also a very well executed photo with an excellent POV, brilliant colors and sharpness. The curvature of the shoreline is endearing.

I like the design of this sea front and the way you captured it. The composition has many interesting architectural, natural and daily-life details. The colors, light and photographic qualities also are very well managed. Excellent job!

A very powerful image beneath that deep blue sky and your enterprising use of pov and wide view with that railing and sweeping curve nicely lead the eyes in. A finely exposed shot on a bright beautiful day, clean and fresh with lovely people presence just to hold the focus. I love the rich colours and contrast with lots interests to make it a joyful shot and to sum up the beautiful summer scene. Congrats

Good idea with this large place for the Fg on your presentation, good depth result, nice seafront and light, tfs.
krzychu30 (15512) 2013-11-20 11:10
I like the way you included the path in the FG.It really draws our exes into the scene and makes it even more eye-catching to us!
It leads us also nicely across the whole scene(looks like you captured the curved promenade in the best place to achieve so amazing visual effect!)
Apart from that I enjoy here this relaxing,summer feeling of this scene!
Wish You all the best

Kalimera dear Ourania,
Relaxing place to stroll along, enjoying sea views, palm trees and sun, the way these turist are doing
Good to know what are the buildings at the back, always some hotels never finish their reparations
The composition in curve is smart and original the patern of the floor as the orange (?) that goes on till the end
Well done, enjoy the rest of the week

Ciao Purania, gran bella propspettiva, ottimo l'iserimento della coppia a passerggio, splendida nitidezza e bei colori naturali, brava, ciao Silvio

I think that you spent some time studying composition and wisely waited for the walking couple without other crowd around. The framing is spot on - you have positioned the walkway nicely on the left side and the houses in top part of the frame, in this way you have created excellent balance and harmony. The right side is well filled with the water. In this way all the elements in this photo are excellently balanced.
The foreground interest is abundant in texture and detail; and the clear blue sky is creating excellent contrasting background. I like this photo a lot. Well done my friend.
Wish you a very nice weekend.
