This "abstract" picture shows the reflection of the old post office of Ayia Marina and part of an adjacent building on the left. Both were built in the first period of the Italian possession of the Dodecanese (1912-1930) when the Italian government and architects wished to combine in the architecture they introduced to the islands local characteristics and a cosmopolitan, Mediterranean style.
The old post office has been renovated but it's an empty building for many decades now. The adjacent building used to serve the port Custom but since the '80s is used by the Theatrical Group of Leros and Radio Leros.

A very attractive composition with a very Impressionist feel to it. A lovely ensemble of reflections captured under a pleasing light and very well presented. Have a pleasant and peaceful Sunday.

Exquisite reflection picture, Ourania.
The date show it was a bright winter day, and I find agreeable contrast between blue and yellow/baige colors.
Fine photojob done, cheers.

I love your water reflection photographs because you do them so very well - and this one is absolutely stunning!
Almost like an abstract painting, yet, in conjunction with your note, we can appreciate the facades of the buildings to which you refer. The light and colours are rich and vibrant, your exposure perfect and the composition delightful.
A very appealing photograph indeed.

Même si on ne voit que les reflets dans les eaux calmes du petit port on sait immédiatement où on se trouve, ce qui fait le grand intérêt de cette composition marine.

grandiose reflet et vue quelles déformatuion et couleures un vrai tableau de maître,
Bravo et amitié

Wonderful harmonious combination of fluid shapes in this beautiful reflection, rippling with lines and delightful colours like an abstract painting. The oily effect that you have been able to capture in water is superb, very soothing and calming, and makes for a very artistic visual. A very inspirational composition and striking image.

Another beautiful Monet painting come to life in which you captured the ost incredible color and light. The abstract shapes of the buildings entices me to look deeper into the scene and try to make it te details of the buildings, especially when I read the history behind them in your note. A tantalising glimpse of historic architecture deliverer in a beautiful sea that glitters like a kings jewels. I love this kind of shot, I wish our seas in Ireland allowed such works but alas the combination of grey sea and ugly coastal buildings makes it unlikely. Still, at least I get to enjoy the wealth of beautiful scenes from Greece instead :)
Have a great Sunday

non so se è la macchia blu che invade il riflesso dorato o la doratura che invade il blu, la cosa essenziale è che il riflesso è bellissimo e che i due colori stanno perfettamente insieme.
Un bel colpo d'occhio il tuo, che hai saputo riprendere nel modo giusto per trasferire a noi la tua impressione.

Very well done composition with these nice and golden reflections. Textures here remind a Persian rug.
macjake (69223) 2014-06-29 11:06
well, a post office has never looked so good!
as you very well know, these reflection photos do so well, they are often well liked.
My favorite part of the scene are the blue colors in the lower fg - possibly windows?
excellent wiggle and movement of the lines.

Another lovely abstract from you with great framing and colours. The shades of yellow and golden brown contrast superbly with the deep blue of the water and the patterns formed are really eye catching. Artistic shot perfectly executed.
Thanks for sharing and have a great day.

I was hoping to log on tonight and congratulate your countries team for advancing in the World Cup. :( I can at least admire another one of your beautiful reflection images though. :)
Certainly not your typical post office, yeah...I would venture to guess dropping off a package here will ensure it not finding the final destination. lol
The golden colors and wavy patterns are indeed abstract, and the way this particular one is layed out and framed makes for some wonderful rhythmic layers...reminds me of a seismograph pattern during an earthquake. I get the feeling if I stare too long, I might fall under a trance. Attractive and alluring, add another splendid reflection to your collection. Enjoy the new week. All the best.

Une capture magnifique des reflets, telle une peinture abstraite, très jolie réalisation
Have a nice day

Quand la nature s'amuse à créer une peinture aux couleurs délicieuses, il faut l'immortaliser d'une aussi belle façon.
Les reflets sont fort bien représentés.

υπέροχη χρωματική καταγραφή των αντανακλάσεων από τις βάρκες της Αγίας Μαρίνας.Μιά αληθυνή πανδαισία φωτός,χρωμάτων και φυσικά παρουσίασης.

I see you are a master of port reflections. Again a splendid one, this time in golden touch.
imageme (1790) 2014-06-30 4:49
Hi Ourania, The reflection creates an abstract image here and with perfect exposure. Nice colors and patterns. Thank for sharing
mjw364 (1348) 2014-06-30 8:24
This type of shot is in some ways a signature style of yours. You have so many and they are all so good. People imagine that such shots are easy but they are not. Aside form the moving water and light you have to have a keen eye to abstract the best elements of the reflection in order to create a composition of interest. You always do this so well.
holmertz (54363) 2014-06-30 12:22
These reflections really offer endless possibilities. Never will two photos ever look the same. This is a wonderful blend of yellow and blue areas with a few touches of gold. Very attractive.
