A scene from a very tranquil afternoon at the harbour of Ayia Marina. We are looking to the north, the settlement at the opposite side of the bay is Alinda and the mountain on the right is called Kleidi.
I liked the overall chilly atmosphere, it was only due to the clouds and colours, otherwise it was a warm afternoon.
When I looked at the picture on my computer screen, I saw that it was like a mix of colour and monochrome. The effect is purely natural, the idea would have never occurred to me and if it had I wouldn't be able to realize it...
Thank you for visiting, a great Sunday to all

Lovely composition with the reflections. Your title says it all. The colours are muted and natural and ideal for the mood of serenity that your picture conveys. The boat in the foreground is viewed at a perfect angle and displays good details. Thanks for sharing and have a nice evening.

I like very much the calm and peaceful atmosphere that is evoked by this excellent composition. The boat is nicely placed off-centre and makes a fine pointer toward the far shoreline. Pleasant moody lighting and very good sharpness.

A small fisher boat maybe ready for fishing on prawns.
This gives a extraordinarily atmosphere, nice depth and pespective and excellent panorama view about these area.
Wonderful sharp and clear taken.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice Sunday,

The colors here are particularly beautiful and have an almost silver sheen to them. Th landscape beyond looks to me like a magical place, a place of myth and legend. Love the composition of the land on the thirds too, allowing a lot of the frame to go to the beautiful vessel, which is again perfectly composed on the third. Beautifull put together scene Ourania.
As always, an education and a pleasure to share your work.

Je crois bien qu'un petit coup de flash aurait été très utile pour donner vie à ce petit bateau dans l'ombre.Il est pourtant la vedette de la composition.
Par contre c'est une belle photo d'atmosphère.

Yes you were right about the tones: the partly cloudy sky made a special texture of the water surface over the bay.
Yet, you managed to maintain a fine clarity, far as the other side, with the boat in FG added good scale of the scene.
Lovely, I can recognize the small (known) windmill on water's edge.

Lovely capture, nice muted colours and reflection.

tranquil and so charming!
For me looks like a perfect place to relax after sightseeing for example busy Athens.
Different face of Greece,but it has itw own unique charm and mood you were able to capture and convey here excellently.
Have a nice sunday afternoon

composizione perfetta con la barca in giusta posizione e solo un po' scura!
La resa della superficie dell'acqua è superba.
Un carissimo saluto

I could have imagined that somebody living on a relatively small island would have a limited source of photo opportunities, but you manage to find new angles, different light conditions and different tones of the colours in a way that I find amazing. In this photo I am especially fond of the light blue and grey tones of the water, but there is a generally very appealing harmony of this composition.

Hello dear Ourania,
A little bit dim and dark atmosphere but even this helps the viewer see many nice details here.
Good layout and nice reflections.
TFS and best regards

μια όμορφη και γαλήνια σκηνή από το λιμάνι της Αγίας Μαρίνας με την ψαρόβαρκα να είναι αγκυροβολημένη στον προβλήτα.Το χωριό στο βάθος προσανατολίζει τον θεατή για την θέση που ευρίσκεται.

A simple but powerful composition with the solitary boat moored at right. Good sharpness and nice reflections in the water. The soft pastel colors work well here. Nice cloud patterns with good sharpness. Tfs!@

Very nice and moody picture, You sure are moving around with tis angle that enhances the lead-in through the anchored boat and letting us see all this beautiful scenery. Lovely reflections, detail, shade and shadows.
Very nicely done, Congrats

The other day, the weatherman was forecasting winds in excess of 60 km/h off of Bodrum and I thought of you, you must have been pounded.
This, too, reminds me of Prince Edward Island in the summer. I like the position of the boat.
Kamilutka (8095) 2014-03-14 3:21
very nice picture with slightly romantic mood about. The lonely boat swinging on delicate waves looks very picturesque. The colors are quite unusual and muted but I like the atmosphere they help to create.
Prettily composed and well presented.
Thank for sharing
Kielia (23777) 2014-03-14 8:22
you are presenting the boat taken from a very well working POV! It is a fascinating impression with a fantastic mood. The composition is very successful. My compliments also for the nice notes!
