Before the storm arrives to Ayia Marina, there's just enough time to clean some fish at the quay.

these can be such magnificent and moody moments before storm approach.
I like especially this unique,quite "metallic"look of the water,which in combination with the grey sky contributes so significantly to its atmosphere.
And one detail more-this lone man-just superb juxtaposition for the shot(it wouldn´t have such strong impact with more people on it)
Wish You a nice day

The light really helps to set the mood, here. There is quite an ominous atmosphere but it, also, creates a wonderful, moody light on the water with strong reflections.
The figure is important to the whole, giving a good focal point and creating a scenario ... is he aware of the gathering gloom!
Great, angled viewpoint!
My warm regards,

A very nice composed shot, the light in the buildings,
about to be over shadowed by the black clouds giving a foreboding atmosphere.

Hi Ourania, very good view of the interesting city before the storm with beautiful sun rays on it, very well captured with a great pov in this great and beautiful photography. An interesting image of a nice place, with good sharpness, depth and quality. A great job well done, congratulations my friend. Thanks for sharing this beautiful work.
Good afternoon and happy rest of the week.
Warm greetings from southern Spain.

J'aime beaucoup ce ciel gris qui vient contraster les maisons toutes blanches. Le point de vue très bas donne de la profondeur à la composition. La ligne de côte est très belle à cet endroit.
mirosu (15350) 2014-04-02 6:04
Superb view to nice white town houses. The arrangement with nice reflections and the dramatic sky is perfect.
Very well done.
saxo042 (37724) 2014-04-02 7:19
The sun still shines pleasantly on the houses across the water but the clouds in the sky tell another story. A good picture of daily life here. The man is quite important in this context.
ikeharel (63779) 2014-04-02 7:26
At first look, I wondered what the man is doing half-body above pavement, good that you had mention him, Ourania.
Right on time, where there was light upon the far side houses, shining white - and the heavy clouds aloft in great contrast.
Remarkable moment superbly collected.

You've captured some stunning weather here. Great light on this village bathed in brightness, standing out so brilliantly against the dark and threatening clouds. I like the point of view here with the sweeping curve of the shoreline as it goes into the distance. I just wonder if a wide panaramic format would not work better. I did a workshop to try this. Please tell me what you think about it.

that is a lovely atmospheric shot of the waterside settlement about to be hit by rain and wind. The lovely light falling on the buildings is superbly captured and the steely surface of the water is a very charming feature of the photo. The hill in the distance stands out beautifully against the dark clouds and finally, the lone man on the shore adds the perfect touch of solitude.
Thanks for sharing and have a great new day.
Kielia (24073) 2014-04-02 9:19
this is a dramatic shot with a very powerful sky. Nicely composed too and an excellent perspective of the promenade. The person gives some interesting foreground detail. My compliments!
holmertz (45903) 2014-04-02 9:52
This is a wonderful photo of bright sunshine and black clouds, a red building and white buildings, fantastic reflections and a man at work. It's dramatic and quietly peaceful at the same time. It's conventionally well balanced with roughly one third background of village and sky, but admittedly the foreground may contain a bit too much empty quay. The fisherman definitely belongs here, but did you ever consider cropping just slightly below him, just above the lighter line going across the quay?
Subhogen (4067) 2014-04-02 11:10
This is a superb photo from the bay. I like the composition the curve of the shore line. Excellent near the ground POV. A fantastic atmospheric image. Good timing to catch the brooding sky and also the nice warm light on those white houses in the BG. This is really very well done. Excellent image! Thanks for sharing.

Ciao Ourania, affascinante panoramica della deliziosa cittadina, fantastica la luce che come spesso accade prima della tempesta crea magici effetti, favoloso il cielo minaccioso, deliziosi i riflessi, gran bella foto, bravissima, ciao Silvio
PaulVDV (24657) 2014-04-02 12:06
A threatening sky, a splendid light on the white town, beautiful reflected colours in the sea and this all in a well composed picture.
Excellent clarity and colours.
Funny, this man seems to crawl out of a hole in the ground.
Best regards, Paul

adoro il filtro polarizzatore perchè permette di cogliere queste scene superbe quando la luce lo permette.
Una foto che è un vero spettavolo non solo per i colori ed i riflessi sull'acqua, ma soprattutto per l'elternarsi della luce brilòlante sulle case e la colorazione cupa del cielo.
Composizione e ripresa eccellente quanto a tecnica: un mix perfetto che merita un elogio ben meritato.
Ciao e buona notte
Corry (4508) 2014-04-02 21:25
Belle perspective sur ces maisons blanches le long de la côte. La lumière est très belle malgré le ciel menaçant. La présence du pêcheur donne de la vie à la scène. bien fait.

Γεια σου Ουρανία,
η ήρεμη θάλασσα,τα ωραία απ τον ήλιο φωτισμένα σπίτια και ο άνθρωπος που καθαρίζει ψάρια συνθέτουν μία όμορφη γαλήνια σκηνή στο λιμάνι,ο συννεφιασμένος ουρανός δημιουργεί μία αντίθεση χρωμάτων και φωτισμού που κάνει τη σκηνή να φαίνεται ακόμη πιο έντονα.
subhendu_bagchi (25975) 2014-04-03 4:24
excellent shot here. I like your composition with fine depth and sharpness. I enjoyed the natural colour tone and your lower POV. The dramatic sky is really made your composition special here. Very well captured shot. Tfs.
Kamilutka (8105) 2014-04-03 5:08
it is amazing that before the storm hits the village it usually looks its best. You made the most of this scene not only capturing gorgeous colors but also managing to include some interesting every day life element in the composition. I like the stormy sky which provides such an excellent background for the sun illuminated houses.
Nice POV as well as the whole framing.
Thanks for sharing and enjoy your day
Didi (59144) 2014-04-03 10:07
J'apprécie cette luminosité particulière
J'aime bien l'image en WS quoique il aurait fallu un léger recul
pajaran (55527) 2014-04-03 11:38
Sada smo komsije sa fotografijama na TE.
Lep pogled na mesto i arhitekturu u pozadini ...
Dobar trenutak snimka, ostrina, kontrast i perspektiva, lepo pokazano mesto i trenutak sa ribolovcem, lepe boje.
Prijatno vece i lepa noc, sve najbolje.
Now we are neighbors with photos on TE.
Nice view of the place and the architecture in the background ...
Good time recording, sharpness, contrast and perspective, nice place and moment shown with anglers, beautiful colors.
Have a nice evening and night, all the best.
RhodieIke (11744) 2014-04-04 8:37
I love these moody shot before storms, the light is fantastic, the view across the water to the sea side town of Leros is splendid, but the thing in your image I like the most is this guy who appears to be coming out of the promenade, he he.
Well done, Tfs,
mesutilgim (89670) 2014-04-04 9:48
Hellon dear Ourania,
Very nice capture of this prestormy scenery in Leros.
Good layout and perfect light management.
TFS and have a nice weekend
Cricri (111963) 2014-04-04 11:09
Une très belle lumière prise avant la pluie , lumineuse ce qui donne de merveilleux reflets, la personne donne de la vie, une très belle présentation
ChrisJ (105379) 2014-04-05 12:48
The cloudy skies at the back look threatening but they have given a soft diffused light over the bg mountains to contrast against the hard sunlight in the mid distance over the village. The fg area has good shadow detail. Excellent sharpness throughout. Have a delightful weekend!
jcpix (13820) 2014-04-05 21:04
It took me a good hard look to figure out what I was seeing here, the illusion and perception of this gentleman to my eyes was that he was only half a man!? :) Once I realized it, I had a good laugh. lol
You've captured one of my all time favorite moments, a brewing storm...and one of the others is the aftermath. There's such a dynamic anticipation of what nature is about to act out, and you've captured that sensation with this arrangement...which is even more impressive considering the sky is a little less than a third of the composition. The sun shining on the village is sublime contrast against the heavy clouds. I can virtually hear the distant thunder...hope he didn't stay out there too long cleaning that fish, or they might have been washed right back out to sea. A smart observational and daily life moment, well rendered and displayed. Enjoy the new day. All the best.

Kalispera Ourania querida
Wou, a super, hiper storm arriving and you composing an impressive composition with good perspective goinf from te front to the back in an smart curve
Mi idea, I like the empty space at the front with ONLY a fisher
Well done also to take the photo when the last rays of sun are on the white houses at the back
Te deseo una buena semana
Elene from Greese write me in Spanish
mcmtanyel (17143) 2014-04-15 22:24
Yes, the calm before the storm... I like your low POV. The textures of the sky, the reflections off the water are just superb. Great light management and DOF.
