A view of the bay of Ayia Marina in early spring. It's been captured from a small parking space at the side or the road leading to Alinda. What caught my attention was one of the first sailboats that spent a couple of days anchored in the bay and I took this picture through a "window" in the shrubs.
Thank you for visiting, a great weekend to all

Γεια σου Ουρανία,
πολύ όμορφη σύνθεση με τα στοιχεία της πολύ καλά τοποθετημένα στο κάδρο,ο ανεμόμυλος τραβάει τη προσοχή με την πρώτη ματιά ενώ τα κίτρινα λουλουδάκια στο πρώτο πλάνο προσθέτουν χρώμα στην φωτογραφία,

A well framed composition with an interesting juxtaposition between the windmill and the yacht. I like the warm light and colours.

questo luogo è sempre bello, ogni stagione e in ogni situazione.
Sembrano infinite le possibilità fotografiche, bastano pochi dettagli e prende vita un nuovo soggetto.
Tu conosci molto bene il luogo e riesci a trovare sempre nuove idee per allietare i nostri occhi.

una foto recentissima dalla quale è facile vedere come la primavera cominci a fare i primi passi anche nel Dodecanneso e l'immaginazione va al profume del mare e delle erbe.
Una veduta classica della tua città von il mulino immancabile che con la sua presenza contrasta e arricchisce i colori che la natura ci offre, colori che la tua ripresa riporta in maniera fedele in un contesto di gran nitidezza, il tutto senza mai dimenticare la cura dwella composizione.
Sei brava come tuo solito.
Ciao e buon fine settimana

Sharpness, exposure, colors, vertical format, chosen pov and composition really pleased me with just two "buts" that I hope you don't mind me telling you: Dependending on another chosen pov, the mill and the boat could be a tiny bit better placed in this image, maybe moving a bit to the left, you could get the entire mill (without the tree covering it a bit) and that boat would cover part of that land in the background! Of course, that is just a suggestion, not a big problem in this very beautiful picture!
TFS - congrats,
Enjoy your week-end,

A very nice composed shot. Placing the main buildings between the yacht and the windmill. I like the blurred flowers in the fore ground that gives depth to the shot. Have a nice weekend.

J'aime beaucoup le point de vue choisi entre les fleurs jaunes qui semblent s'ouvrir pour nous faire découvrir ce paysage de rêve, incluant moulin et voilier.Un cadrage vertical qui donne de la profondeur à la composition.
rbassin (22511) 2014-04-05 6:53
une composition bien réalisée, dans un bon format vertical; bonne succession des plans,et bonne gestion de la profondeur.

This is indeed a very beautiful view. I can easily understand that you enjoy taking pictures from here. I looked back in your portfolio and found a picture called "autumn" from the very same spot. Interesting to compare these captures. The one is full of flowers and warmth. You could easily have called this "summer", I would have believed you. A very attractive view!
holmertz (50766) 2014-04-05 7:38
A well known view, this time with yellow flowers adorning the foreground. The colours are magnificent and the composition is very well balanced. I would certainly not suggest cropping it anywhere :-).
jemaflor (95343) 2014-04-05 10:28

Spring colors and brighter light prevailes on this known windmill and bay - looks different on every season.
The sail-boat, windmill and rocks on the coastline, adirned with the yellow flowers managed to add to the scene.
Have a nice Sunday,

beautiful view of Leros and excellently presented spring time with blossoming flowers in the FG.Really like the idea.It not only enliven the whole scene,it creates also beter depth of the further part of the image.
Also the combination of typical Greek architecture and nature couldn´t be more captivating here.

A spectacular landscape with a fine light. All the elements are perfectly balanced. The result is great. Congratulations!

Wonderful image of the bay of Ayia Marina in early spring.Excellent image quality with good colors and sharpness. TFS.
photographer_sg (4414) 2014-04-07 7:23
Lovely composition with great visual appeal in the foreground where you have played with the beautiful colours and the dof as well :-). The colour contrast of the small red and white cabin on the right with the gorgeous blue of the sea is superb. The boat with the tall mast is perfectly positioned in the frame. The rocky cliff in the distance with the houses and the statue (?) at the edge makes a perfect backdrop.
Thanks for sharing and have a great new week ahead.
eldancer1 (36343) 2014-04-07 7:23
Awesome composition! The vertical worked well with the composition. I like the inclusion of the flowers in the foreground, it gives the photo more depth. Great pov and sharp details with wonderful colors. Well done, tfs.
Cricri (117273) 2014-04-07 8:23
Une composition bien équilibrer, du rocher passant vers le moulin , le bateau et le village au bord de l'eau, le petit côté sauvage et fleuri, une belle image printanière
mesutilgim (93948) 2014-04-07 11:44
Hello dear Ourania,
Nice capture from Leros with a different pov.
Perfect light and very good pov.
The blurred flowers in the foreground adds a unique beauty to the scenery.
TFS and best regards
ChrisJ (111602) 2014-04-07 20:33
Good use of a shallow dof with the oof yellow sunflowers contrasting well against the bg blue sea and sky. The lonely windmill at right and the yacht at left add depth and lead the eye deep back into the image towards the distant promontory. Tfs!
nikkitta (17066) 2014-04-09 15:43
Hola Ourania querida
What a good blured frame for this Spring composition
Like the houses at the back and the balance given by sailboat and mill
As always call my atention the shades of the blue waters
Going to create a group of Spanish Speaken Persons, hurry up to refresh it
pili51 (1851) 2014-04-14 17:16
Hello dear Ourania,

All the best, have a lovely evening,
mcmtanyel (21343) 2014-04-18 20:37
The colors of spring are pleasant in your window through the shrubs. The flowers' yellow and the Aegean's blue definitely complement each other. It is nice to see signs of reawakening.
