A reflection of the fiery clouds that adorned one evening the sky over Crithoni. The road runs along the coast until the end of the bay of Alinda.

Well, this one is certainly different! But i have to give you props for having the keen eye to notice it. Seeing the orange colors on the road is rather cool. And we can see a good level of textures too.

As Craig so rightly says, this one is certainly very diffreent! And, of course, it is not only very well taken but also very well seen too! So many of us look but very few of us really see!
Such a simple subject - a wet roadway with reflections of a very interesting, colourful and characterful sky - and yet so very well captured!
Very well done!

Excellent work!! Great to have such eye to discover this wonderful subject...and great realization indeed!!
Definition and colours are very good but the fact is that the art is on discover its potential...and make a great capture then... Amazing and clever work!! I love it!

In order not to repeat exactly what others have been saying I would describe this as "original" or "unusual". Whatever the definition it is quite a remarkable composition and it's time to compliment you once again on your clever eyes. There are a few members of TE who manage to find art in very simple creations of nature. Nicou is one, you are another one. Apart from the fine reflections I am also very fond of the complete darkness that surrounds the road. It creates an atmosphere of a strange and unknown place.

Lovely moment captured. The composition and the colours have resulted in a superb abstract picture.
Thanks for sharing such a wonderful photograph.

una foto quasi metafisica, e per questo di grande impatto visivo.
Mi piacciono molto queste chiqzze colorate circondate dal buio, un angolo di strada che emerge dalle tenebre, quasi un momento di vita estrapolato da un contesto più ampio.
Ciao e buona serata
Cricri (101149) 2013-12-19 10:55
Voila ce qui s'appelle avoir l'il, avec d'incroyable couleurs et une texture super bien rendue, très belle réalisation
Très belle soirée

TFS and best regards

This exploration of tone and texture is like a painting, Ourania. I fear that if I were to hang it on my wall (and I want to!), I might mistakenly put it upside-down.
As others have already said, your genius here is to look down when most of the rest of us would be looking up and looking around, trying to find the right foreground for these spectacular clouds.
Superb work, sir. Thanks for sharing this!
Subhogen (4065) 2013-12-19 20:50
Again we see a super minimalist composition from you. You are certainly a master of this art.
One can praise this photo even if he/she does not understand what is photographed, such is the expression of colors, contrast and detailing on this photo.
I love these kind of photos because one needs to have a keen eye to observe such details which sadly I don't have :-) Thanks for sharing.
KristinsCamera (2373) 2013-12-19 21:29
a lovely capture, ourania ~
mysterious but also enticing with that burst of color coming from all the darkness.
and a nice visual puzzle to try and solve as well. beautiful abstract, nicely seen & captured.
Waylim (25020) 2013-12-19 22:26
I have to really give you a complement on taking such simple thing that most of us would ignore and not notice, and making it into a relatively beautiful image using the reflecting of the light and shadow on the wet street. Excellent observation and good executing.
mirosu (12514) 2013-12-19 23:43
You are very talented and most creative photographer, otherwise you would not be able to create this excellent photo from nothing. Well done my friend.
Noel_Byrne (20682) 2013-12-20 1:20
Amazing light effects on this road, and a brilliant idea to capture the fiery colors of the sky without actually including the sky itself! I love that the foreground is in darkness like this, and then the depth brought about by the long road reaching into the scene. And of course, the colors.
Beautiful as always
snunney (79459) 2013-12-20 4:33
An unusual and innovative composition. The fiery reflections make a superb contrast with the glistening black and greys of the roadway. Very good rendering of the textural detail.
ikeharel (52153) 2013-12-20 4:56
darkness works well in the reflection pic. here, Ourania.
Well spotted and managed the superb orange light on the puddle. Created a marverlous abstract scene on image. Bravo.
ChrisJ (94756) 2013-12-20 14:21
I am glad you were careful of speeding traffic! Good warm cold color contrasts between the red and blue with excellent sharpness and no extraneous details to distract. Have a safe and happy Christmas New Year Break!
delpeoples (52443) 2013-12-20 22:06
Impressionante questa foto perche hai fatto la tua magica, facendo un soggetto ordinario diventare una cosa straordinaria. I colori forti, la luce argenta ed oro, il taglio verticale e la prospettiva sono splendidi. Una foto molto particolare ed originale. Complimenti.
jhm (135042) 2013-12-21 0:37
This is an extraordinarily picture through the different colours in puddle.
Excellent contrast cares for an attractive picture
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice weekend,
subhendu_bagchi (25240) 2013-12-21 1:43
wow, it is a perfect execution of reflection photography. Nicely capture. Good sharp details. The cloud is really looking fiery. Very good shot. Tfs.
npecanhuk (60794) 2013-12-21 2:21
Hi! Wonderful picture! Great idea and excellent photo Job, with special regards to the management of light, colors and, of course, unique composition! Cheers, Neyvan
SnapRJW (29230) 2013-12-21 4:50
Hello Ourania - Isn't it amazing how such a simple shot can convey atmosphere so well? This lovely composition of light, shade, texture and colour is both creative and beautiful. Super! Warm regards Rosemary
mcmtanyel (10392) 2013-12-21 20:41
I love the colors and the irregular patterns they make. An almost-abstract, very artistic photo. Well seen and rendered, TFS!
krzychu30 (15332) 2013-12-21 23:08
finally more time after busy and stressful week.
This one is just brilliant!
Alone the idea for it,but of course also its execution and mood you were able to create are magnificent.
Beautiful,creative and definitely working on our imagination and senses image!
Wish You a nice sunday
Schnappilic (9686) 2013-12-21 23:27
I like your idea. The result is impressive. Great composition with a special light and beautiful colors. Well seen!
CLODO (28924) 2013-12-22 1:57
a dramatic picture with bold colors, no need to look at the sky to know that there's a storm overthere, with some showers and some sunny periods.
abmdsudi (39470) 2013-12-22 23:06
Another good abstract, imaginative and artistic shot. I like the inter play of warm lights, shadow and vibrant colours on the wet pavement. It's great when the depth - perspective is stretched with excellent touch of diagonal lines and low pov, lovely sort of abstract which gives some interesting effects that does appeal the eye. Well done.
Didi (54945) 2013-12-23 10:01
Un effet abstrait intéressant constitue cette bonne composition, cela donne une certaine ambiance tragique
jcpix (11398) 2013-12-24 5:04
The burning sky turned upside down, what a wonderful and smart observation! In all of its simplicity, the effect shines through. Amazing colors rendered on the pavement, and in such an abstract way that is eye-catching. Quick thinking and a keen eye have resulted in a very intriguing image. Great work to capture the fleeting moment. Wishing you the very best, happy holidays and warm regards from the U.S.
rigoletto (34197) 2013-12-26 5:02
hello ourania. this is all about the photographer's eye! again a beautiful abstract, this time from a most regular place that not many people would even think about making a photo. the colors, textures, reflections and the use of black are marvellous.
