Reflection on the window of a very old building, that lies at a central spot but has been abandoned for years, in Ayia Marina. Last year renovation works started which cleaned and shaped it up a bit. The works have stopped for many months now, who knows when the almost two hundred years old building will be ready for use again. It's amazing that one of the windows at its side above the sea has managed to keep its glass panes.
Thank you for visiting

It truly is amazing that this glass has survived and is so impeccably clean too! To allow this beautiful reflection so clearly, and to throw back these colors is just amazing. How great to hear that the building may reopen to people one day, as much as I love ruins, I do love to see buildings find a new lease of life too. The block work and the visible construction of this building is really cool to see. Such colors through the block work as well as the reflection.
Thanks as always

Les reflets dans cette fenêtre apportent une excellente touche à l'image du plan serré de cette façade.

Lovely contrast between colourful reflections full of light and the stark facade remaining in shade. Well spotted and used photo opportunity.

This is a photograph of great sensitivity and feeling. It is indeed sad to see the grand old buildings of the yesteryears slowly fade into oblivion. Perhaps the only thing that we can do is to at least capture them in photos. The light has set up some lovely patterns on the window panes. Thanks for sharing this beautiful picture.
Have a nice evening.

Good contrast applied, Ourania, by texture(not necessarily on colors).
Fine view moirror in distortion the house on the other side, well under light.
Nicely spotted, kalinichta,

Sounds like, and certainly looks like, you found a little jewel in the rubble. Amazing to think this has stood for 200 years...hope I look half this good by then. :) A picture and subject I thoroughly enjoy, so full of simple character appeal, gritty and worn textures, and that charm of still standing strong.
What really stands out to me is the contrast of light. With a shaded exterior wall, the reflection in the window shines brightly...yeah, pun intended. :) It really is quite a lovely contrast and eye-catching element in this minimal setting. Love that you filled the frame with close-up detail. The only thing this photo needs now is a frame of its own to be hung on another wall. Beautifully done! Enjoy the new day. All the best.

Le cadrage serré sur cette fenêtre est très apprécié pour donner de la force à cette composition.
Les vieilles pierres et l'appareillage de cette construction sont un atout dans cette présentation.

This is really delightful, just love it. An amazing range of tones and textures to be observed in that stonework. The reflections in the window are the cherry on the top.

Ciao Ourania,la scelta dell'orario è stata decisiva per ottenere il miglior contrasto tra la facciata in ombra ed i riflessi delle prime luci del mattino nella finestra,ma non mi sorprendo affatto,una grande esperta di riflessi come te non poteva fare diversamente...ehhee..ottima composizione,minimalista e di gran qualita'.Buona giornata,Luciano

όμορφη παρουσίαση της αντανάκλασης στο παλαιό παράθυρο του πέτρινου σπιτιού,που πραγματικά αν μίλαγε θα μπορούσε να διηγηθεί του κόσμου τις ιστορίες.Η ποιότητα της φωτογραφίας είναι εξαιρετική.

Une belle prise de vue où l'on peut apprécier la structure de la pierre

Ottima inquadratura su questa facciata di pietre con splendidi riflessi nella finestra. Mi piace molto!
Un caro saluto.

The textures of the facade are excellent and the reflections off the window panes are quite colorful with lovely patterns, one of which reminds me of Jaws. Well seen and shown.
