The pilot of the Dash 8 Q400 plane is going back to his place after a brief stop at the airport of Leros. Boarding on the flight to Athens started a few minutes later. The plane flew over the Aegean at sunset. Sea and sky scapes were absolutely magnificent in the glorious warm light of this hour.
My point of view was behind the window of the waiting area.
Thank you for visiting

J'aime les reflets donner par la vitre, cela donne de l'originalité a la scène, bien capturer le monsieur en noir avec son portable, une image créative et bien réaliser

You captured more than one set of reflections during your short stay at the airport. This may be more conventional than the last photo but it is still a very attractive picture given an extra dimension by the curving lights reflected in the glass. To me it is amazing to see this kind of warm light just before Christmas. It looks like summer to me.

Did you, by any chance, tale a photo of the airplane itself? This must be a very pleasant airport, so close to the water.

Hi dear Ourania, how are you?
Sorry for my late reaction as I was so busy last week.

So well considered framework is set as usual.

Aiports are a vibrant place and a nice subject for photography, and you taken the pilot walk on the tarmac before take-off.
One suggestion though: next time when you have to take a photo through a glass window, put the lens as close as possible("glewed") to the glass itself - that's way you avoide the glare and reflections.
Enjoy a nice weekend,

I don't know if it felt that way when you created the shot on site, but I feel a tremendous sense of loneliness form this scene. As the man walks outside among the expansive landscape, he looks like he is waiting for something, or someone. I don't know what the male version of a widows walk is, but this reminds of such a thing. This is highlighted by the fact that we can see part of the reflection in the glass, separating the man from the world you are in as you take this shot, and placing him firmly outside. His black suit is somber and matches this mood.
haha, forgive me in seeing things strangely, but I love a photo that has strong senses of mood and emotion.

The reflections in the window add another element of interest and change the image completely from a simple daily life composition. The pilot with his mobile is well placed and creates a good sense of dynamism.

C'est une superbe prise de vue, bel effet de reflets dans les vitres, et bonne attitude de l'homme en noir.
