This picture shows a reflection of a side window on the floor of Leros Airport.
The Municipal airport of Leros lies in Partheni, at the north of the island. It was constructed in 1984 and has a 14/32 airfield 1015 m long. For many years, it was used by DORNIER 228-201 aircrafts of 18 seats but since 2005 it received Dash 8-100 aircrafts of 37 seats and today there are 11 flights a week with Dash 8Q100.
Leros is connected with Athens everyday and with Astypalea, Kos and Rhodes a couple of times a week.
The airport building was renovated and (reasonably)expanded in 2005.

This is indeed a experimental picture.
It light of the window cares for a good contrast picture.
Excellent composition, nice presentation.
Very well done, TFS.

Magnificent catch of this highly graphical reflection. Could just as well be an abstract painting hanging in a fine museum!

A fabulous minimalist composition. Very well spotted and good observation. I think subjects find your lens, when we search for good subjects :-)
Well thought out and well executed photo. It could well find place in a fine arts exhibition. Excellent and thanks for sharing.

TFS and best regards

hello ourania. definitely an original abstract from the photographically fertile area of airports. the light, reflections, diagonal tilt and the four dots make a superb composition.

On peut constater que tout est dans l'oeil de celui qui regarde bien et qui observe avec attention.On peut s'imaginer plusieurs choses et faire bien des scénarios dans notre tête avant d'arriver au résultat final.

Marvelousely spotted and applied with your artistic skills, most airports have shining floor's, I recall.
Fine lit centered shape, with contrast to the relatively dark surrounding.
Have a nice evening,

This is a magnificent composition, impossible to understand from the thumbnail and not so easy to figure out even at a larger size. I am not entirely sure what I am looking at but that is a very minor problem. I see a composition of spectacular shapes, colours and lines against a very suitable dark background. I would call this quite fantastic and at a much largers size it would deserve a frame and a place on a wall.

I guess it is boxing day in the U. K., isn't it? I must confess, you got me stumped here, I cannot make out what is being reflected. However, the shapes and colors are pleasant, so I'll go by the Turkish adage, "Üzümü ye, bağını sorma" (eat the grapes, do not ask about their vineyard).

An airport? Wow, if I were asked I would have said a work in a gallery, it looks like a well designed mirror on the arm of a guitar. I love the broken reflection of the blue tones creating. Minimalist abstract work. A great lesson in photography, brilliant scenes are everywhere for those who know how to see them.
Thanks as always

hello, a nice minimal composition. I like the reflection a lot. Good thinking and nicely captured. Like the use of diagonal in composition and strong contrast in light. Excellent one. Tfs.

that a great bit pf photography.very creative very original and very artistic.love the effect created here.nicely seen.
abmdsudi (36294) 2013-12-28 21:22
Good shot bringing out certain details and giving them a graphic and almost abstract-graphic look, an alternative style photography rather than a standard shot. It's fun, appeals and colorful with great mixture of diagonal lines where darkness reveals the brightness so superbly. Well done

How creative we get when we spend time waiting some where and we think and look around for a photo.
And here we have a fantastic reflection you have spotted and turned it to this modern art picture.
Wonderful, love it.
Have a nice weekend,
