The yellow boat graces the small neighbourhood at the end of the coast of Alinda. It's not as quiet as it looks, the children have just returned from school and around the corner there are some men doing repair work. Houses, rooms to let and restaurants along the coast are getting ready for the summer season which starts...next month.
Thank you for visiting, a great Sunday to all

The yellow boat stand good contrast to its surrounding, afloat the transparent water.
Fine view of the curving shoreline around this corner of the bay, superb clear image - well done.
Have a nice Sunday,

The bright yellow boat is nicely placed in the frame and acts a pointer toward the quayside, bereft of people at this time. A pleasantly lit image with agreeable warm colours and very good clarity.

Superb imaged, a soothing composition, the setting is lovely and the boat in the foreground draws the eye. Maybe your image looks a little to the right ... or is it an effect of optical? ... Nothing serious.
Have a good weekend.

We get a very quiet picture with the yellow boat in foreground.
Colours and presentation make these picture atractive
Nice panorama view too.
Very well done, TFS
Have a nice Sunday,

A great outlook on this village shot with the yellow boat taking centre stage.

I can see right through the water to the bottom of the sea around that hot, incredible. The sea shimmers like gold, and the little yellow boat is the star of the show as it bobs about on its liquid wealth. You chose a fine backdrop to the scene too, beautiful light make the white building glow.

une bonne composition, le bateau jaune attire le regard et est d'un bel impact.
Sergiom (61054) 2014-03-23 5:10
Tu as du te mettre les pieds dans l'eau pour avoir une aussi beau point de vue sur la rive avec en avant plan cette belle barque jaune. La lumière était de ton côté car c'est très lumineux.

Γεια σου Ουρανία,
ωραία η σκηνή με το κίτρινο βαρκάκι σε πρώτο πλάνο να δίνει χρώμα στη σύνθεση και να την κάνει πιο ελκυστική,
μου αρέσει ακόμα περισσότερο όταν την φαντάζομαι με τους ήχους τριγύρω όπως πολύ ωραία την περιγράφεις στο σημείωμά σου,

Superb calming atmosphere and the yellow boat sticks out well which makes a great contrast in the setting. Love all the detail in the shot including the bg interest
I think i the lighting is a bit too harsh but it's well managed seamlessly, Congrats tfs

Good POV and colours.
I like light and sharpnes.
Boat in FG add savor of composition.

Well, you've certainly fooled me anyway, this appears nothing like what your note suggests. :) Just looking at the "lifeless" scene, I can virtually hear the gentle splashes along the shore and feel a faint breeze....nothing but peace and quiet. The yellow boat sure makes for a strong focal point, the bold color stands alone, but doesn't take away from any of the surrounding scenery. There's a soft nuance of shifting light as the frame progresses from left to right, building up to a warm and inviting afternoon. Great use of the waterfront too, the slow curve of the roads cuts nicely across the frame, which aids in the perception of depth. Very nicely arranged and presented. Enjoy the rest of your weekend. Take care.

The yellow - and red, blue, white and black - boat brings a tremendous splash of colours to the foreground. It is floating on a water that adds several tones of green, almost brown, blue and almost black. Behind it the beach makes a pleasant curve. Although I don't see much of the activities you describe it's interesting to read about the preparations for the coming season. I have always arrived in Greece when the season has already been in full swing or even nearing the end, but I have never seen the islands and villages awakening after the long winter "slumber".

Superb composition with great colours and clarity. You managed the light really really well to present this charming setting. Thanks for sharing and have a nice evening.

Ici pas d'objets coupés, c'est bien
Bon cadrage de la barque jaune en point fort de l'image avec une intéressante courbe de la plage

πολύ όμορφο το κοντραστ της κίτρινης βάρκας με τα υπόλοιπα χρώματα της φωτογραφίας.Εξαιρετική η τοποθέτησή της στο κάδρο καθώς μετά απ΄ αυτή το μάτι αγκαλιάζει το υπόλοιπο μέρος της παραλίας με τα καταλύματα να προετοιμάζονται για την υποδοχή των Καλοκαιρινών επισκεπτών.

the yellow boat breaks here superbly tranquility and calmness of this scene and brings some "dynamic" element to it.
It was really an excellent idea to capture the scene like that and from this POV-magnificent juxtaposition,that also helps you to make the graphical impact of th eimage more expressive.
Beauty of Leros presented at its best!
Wish You a nice day
mirosu (14440) 2014-03-24 3:57
Very nice composition, the yellow boat gives an excellent contrast to the photo. The boat and also the white houses in background are in very good light & clarity. Very well exposed photo.
Very well done.
mohammad_H (9464) 2014-03-24 7:27
Most of your photos, beach, water, boats, forms, and this is because of the proximity of the sea
Beautiful soft waves of water
A good resolution

Ciao Ourania, gran bella composizione con la barca in primo piano, favoloso il mare, splendida luce magnifici colori e ottima nitidezza, brava, ciao Silvio

Kalimera Ourania querida
Getting ready for Summer? bye peace, welcome tiurists?
Great composition whre the boat is the main protagonist, it also seems to attract more light that the white houses in an equilibrated way
Like the patterns formed by the translucent waters
Greetings and cheers

Impressive shot of the colorful boat by the coast of Alinda. Excellent image quality with good lights and sharpness.Very well done. TFS.
ChrisJ (99180) 2014-03-25 10:46
I love the warm cold colour contrast between the yellow boat and the blue sea nad sky. This looks similar to parts of the Pythagorio waterfront in Samos. The curved pebbly shoreline adds good lead in lines and perspective. Tfs!
Kamilutka (8095) 2014-03-25 15:23
this yellow boat with some other bright colors brings loads of life to the composition. You placed it smartly in the frame just to achieve very strong point of interest in the foreground. The settings are pretty and the whole picture has very peaceful atmosphere. Just exactly as it is in Greece before the season :-)
Thanks for sharing
Cricri (107240) 2014-03-26 12:05
Un endroit qui semble bien agréable, toujours quand l'eau est présente c'est très apaisant, le bateau jaune attire le regard, bien mis en cadrage, une note bien écrite d'une vie quotidienne
cornejo (32132) 2014-03-26 12:07
Hi Ourania, very good photograph of this beautiful and interesting composition with the yellow boat, very well captured in this beautiful image with good sharpness, nice color and light. Excellent and interesting job well done, congratulations my friend. Thanks for sharing this beautiful work.
Good night and happy rest of the week.
Warm greetings from southern Spain.

Hello my dear friend
magnificent capture of this yellow boat
it is perfectly placed in this shot
charming composition and quiet
but as you said its not as quiet
as it looks but never mind
I liked it a lot
have a nice new week
mcmtanyel (14117) 2014-04-02 12:52
I looks like the boat could not decide whether to be a Galatasaray fan or a Fenerbahçe fan. It can't have it both ways, you know!
What an exciting time it must be, full of anticipation for the new warm season. My favorite time for that part of the world is late September, when the bulk of the tourists have left. The crowds are gone, but there are still enough tourists to keep the businesses open. Besides, these days, the water must still be chilly - in September, the sea still has all that heat it soaked up during the summer.
Good, good good! I wish I could be there to dip my toes in that crystalline water.
PS. May I ask what line of work you are in?
