Bonjour, cher Danos,
Une image qui fait plaisir à contempler par la présence d'éléments architecturaux de toute beauté.
Le cadrage est une fois de plus très réussi pour valoriser un patrimoine de qualité.
krzychu30 (12689) 2013-10-11 1:00
interesting,beautiful and...very clever composed image!It´s really fantastic to see how you juxtaposed with each other three different objects,each from different era.It makes we realize better how rich and magnificent history Greece has.
Also graphics of the image is very pleasant.Colors and contrast make the scene really lovely.
Wish You a nice weekend ahead
rbassin (13349) 2013-10-11 1:11
une photo qui qui rassemble et montre ces trois éléments d'époques et d'architecture très différentes.
Bon coup d'oeil, c'est bien fait.
ikeharel (44023) 2013-10-11 1:13
Well amanged to place four diff. elements on the image, each is from another era but also very diff. with style's.
The palm tree is a bonus, gave extra green element.
Fine light and clarity, cheers.
shevchenko (18725) 2013-10-11 1:47
Nice to see variety type of arcjitectures and plants, good pov to frame it all, soft sunlight add nice effect to the view too, thanks for sharing a beautiful corner from the old city.
jacquest (16408) 2013-10-11 3:44
A good framing to present those three architectural elements with good colors and sharpness. The tree makes an important fourth element in the image and is probably the youngest one.
claudeD (26964) 2013-10-11 4:45
very fine picture and excellent idea to show this different historical areas. Very good composition and fine light managment.Very well done. Like the view very much.TFS.
With regards from Luxembourg
pierrefonds (51018) 2013-10-11 4:45
The point of view is allowing me to see the architectire of the minaret, of thechurch and of the ruins in the foreground. The vegetation is helping to frame the scene. The good luminosity is bringing out the colors. Have a nice day.
Miguel82 (14464) 2013-10-11 5:12
This is a very clever combination of elements representing the history of that region Danos, bravo
Different monuments belonging to their own period and linked with a specific story that happened here
High resolution, light and colors are excellent
All the best, have a nice afternoon
kato (9532) 2013-10-11 6:50
You're capturing well this place by a good composition and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the pillars of ancient temple, the building with red roof in Ottoman influence and Government house. We can know historical continuity from this place through these three architectures.
mkamionka (27073) 2013-10-11 7:30
great composition, I like it. I had the pleasure to walk among these ruins a year ago looking for an interesting POV. I took a photo from a different spot with some ruins in the foreground and the minaret in the back but I did not realize that going a bit further I could also capture some of the city hall under the arch made of the ruins. Your photo is so much better, the palm tree adds another attractive element here.
Excellent work, congratulations!
clic (12467) 2013-10-11 8:16
Geia sou Danos
So today we have a 'special'; three for the price of one!
And how stunning are those historic monuments "growing" out of greenery as souvenirs of the past.
You managed to show beautifully the clock tower between the pillars of history and of course, the minaret constitutes a judicious visual balance to the temple's remains.
The yellow side light adds a touch of nostalgy to the abundantly-informative view.
holmertz (31302) 2013-10-11 8:28
This is a very interesting and well composed photo. It's remarkable who you could describe the local history so well in just one picture. It is also aesthetically attractive with its warm colours and several vertical features. Really well done.
Didi (51269) 2013-10-11 8:46
Nice ambiance lights in the evening.
Interesting perspective between the columns the tree and the mosque
Very good point of view
ourania (18632) 2013-10-11 9:34
μια όμορφη εικόνα με πολύ ενδιαφέρουσα σύνθεση. Ένα συναρπαστικό ταξίδι στο χρόνο και στην ιστορία του νησιού μέσα σε μια φωτογραφία! Η οπτική σου γωνία είναι ιδανική για μια ισορροπημένη σύνθεση, στο βάθος του κάδρου τα τρία μνημεία αρχιτεκτονικής αποτελούν ένα τρίγωνο. Το φως και τα χρώματα έχουν τη φυσικότητα και την ομορφιά που κάνουν τις αναμνήσεις από τα Δωδεκάνησα ξεχωριστές. Συγχαρητήρια και ευχαριστώ!
Να είσαι καλά κα να έχεις ένα καλό Σαββατοκύριακο,

Hello Danos, great photograph of this beautiful and interesting composition, with all the history of the place in a beautiful image, very well composed and captured in this interesting and nice picture with good sharpness, nice color and light. Excellent and interesting job perfectly done, congratulations my friend. Thanks for sharing this beautiful work.
Good afternoon and happy weekend.
All the best from southern Spain.
Romano46 (11509) 2013-10-11 10:26
la foto è bella sin dalla miniatura e questo è sintomo di una composizione che colpisce immediatamente.
In effetti è stata studiata molto bene, come si puù ben rilevare dalla torre che appare tra le colonne oltre che da tanti altri particolari.
Eccellente anche la luce che illumina il soggetto mettendo in risalto l'essenziale e dando spazio ad un bel cielo azzurro.
Ciao e buona serata
emilbo (21483) 2013-10-11 12:06
Une photo bien présentée avec différents éléments tous intéressants, jusqu'au vieux palmier qui va avec le reste. Beau point de vue, beau cadrage et belles couleurs de fin de journée, si je ne me trompe pas.
Toute mon admiration et bonne fin de semaine,
Fis2 (76986) 2013-10-11 12:23
Curious view, interesting architecture.
Good frame and colors.
I like towers.
Palm add savor of photo.
adramad (30925) 2013-10-11 14:30
A masterful composition, which in a beautiful frame encloses three architectural styles, classical, medieval and Muslim, abundant vegetation and especially the beautiful palm give much charm to the other elements.
Beautiful range of colors, on a beautiful day light.
Magnificent lighting and great sharpness to recreate in the details.
Very well done.
Enjoy a happy weekend.
All the best.
PaulVDV (17273) 2013-10-12 0:20
The long history of a place ensures a rich architectural heritage. Here you looked for a POV that shows us different monumental testimonies neatly in a row, with the view of the Government House seen as through a window.
The palmtree on the FG helps for a good composition and a more attractive view.
Best regards, Paul
abmdsudi (32505) 2013-10-12 1:12
A delightful historic sights, combination of the three prominent from diff era nicely taken from the best viewpoint with sufficient depth. You have optimised the warm angled light to the best as the colours looks subtle with wonderful shadows and so well set off by the deep colored sky. This is such a fine record shot so well executed and thks for the infor notes. My congrats.
mesutilgim (73024) 2013-10-12 3:53
Hello dear danos,
Wonderfull capture from my beloved Greek island (next to Symi) with a wonderfull late afternoon light and a compo with signs of different cultures and aeras.
TFS and have a nice weekend
ChrisJ (91286) 2013-10-12 4:02
A well seen and photographed conglomerate of the three eras of Kos: Greco-Roman, Ottaman and Italian. Good sharpness and perfect sharpness and framing. I like the repetition of the verticals and the tree balances the 2 columns of the ruined temple at right. Tfs!
Noel_Byrne (13356) 2013-10-12 6:14
Brilliant combination of these different eras like this, and when I look at this I think of the amount of people who have come and gone through here, those who found a previous place and decided to put their mark on it, and as we view today, we see all those marks combined into a single collective view while the makers are nowhere to be seen. It is somewhat humbling to see history presented in this way, and its a fantastic combination of architectural elements.
Thanks as always
eldancer1 (20792) 2013-10-12 7:50
Awesome capture of those ruins! So much history on those stones too bad it is being run over with plants. Good lighting and nice details. Well done, tfs.
bayno (18334) 2013-10-12 8:41
three different eras that are well integrated in beautiful green surroundings, the light was great as well as the details and depth...
have a good WE...
marina7 (7160) 2013-10-12 9:56
the palm tree seems to compete with the ancient arch.:)Looks like a very old place lost in greenery. Nice capture.
elenimavrandoni (9965) 2013-10-12 16:24
Δάνο, βλέπω τίς φωτογραφίες σου και ταξιδεύω δωρεάν σε ολα τα μέρης της πατρίδας μου δεν εχω πάει..ολοι μιλάνε για τήν Κώ οτι είναι πολύ ομορφο νησί και να εάν δείγμα πού το αποδεικνύει..το φως εδω γλυκαίνει τήν εικόνα και φυσικά η σύνθεση είναι μοναδική...
καλή σου νύχτα
thebest (4114) 2013-10-12 17:22
I can feel the extreme heat of the day in this photo - I do like the Ancient columns - your notes are extremely well written & informative.
Excellent clarity & good light.
jcpix (6544) 2013-10-12 17:26
Even from the smaller thumbnail image, it's easy to see how much of a conscious and smart composition this was for you. Every element and subject is properly and well placed within the frame. A great concept to go along with the visual, showing the three different eras of architecture and history, all combined splendidly into one singular image. Sharp focus, solid textures and pleasing light control as always. Very nicely achieved once again! Hope you're having a pleasant weekend. Take care.
Cricri (92185) 2013-10-12 22:38
Bon cadrage de la tour depuis les ruines de l'ancien temple, une lumière toujours bien présente, bravo pour le coup d'il et la réalisation
subhendu_bagchi (21056) 2013-10-13 8:47
namaste Danos, a nice composition. Excellent light and depth. Nice colours. A very good one. Tfs.
Silvio1953 (105527) 2013-10-13 11:29
Ciao Danos, lovely composition with fascinating old ruines, splendid light, excellent clarity and wonderful natural colors, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio
boa (4649) 2013-10-13 14:42
a clever idea to include three different historical eras in one photo. I like the soft and warm light that flows in this scene, it is also very sharp and an interesting note, well done!
Have a nice evening.
ifege (9909) 2013-10-13 22:41
Hi Danos a great collage of history without getting too complicated. A good composition with neat highlights.
mohammad_H (7488) 2013-10-14 0:25
Almost like the architecture of Persepolis, Iran
Landscape background with trees and attractive, fully detailed and well illustrated
Clarity and light management is
Best wishes to you
Graal (92166) 2013-10-14 5:31
interesting three areas. Unusual historic place. Good presentation and informations in notes. Well done photo.
Have a nice day.
gervaso (9247) 2013-10-14 6:34
Excellent framing with the different kinds of architecture all in one! The frame of the building in the background formed by the arch is great! Very good colors and sharpness! Wonderful composition! Really well done!
jhm (127995) 2013-10-15 2:17
You use the old pillars as frame for the building in background, this is nice seen.
Also the palm tree and minaret are a nice addition on these picture.
This cares for depth and perspective.
Your picture is made with a lot quality and sharpness.
Very well done, TFS.
Kugart (1772) 2013-10-15 5:46
Indeed a very unusual capture and well worth recording on TE. You have used a nice shooting angle to frame the upper part of the government house through the two columns of the Greek temple. Nice informative note to explain the shot.
zoomer (4225) 2013-10-15 7:36
Hello,love the way the past blends in so naturally as if part of nature itself.All the best Wolf.
geoant68 (2861) 2013-10-15 9:04
Δάνο γεια σου,
όμορφη και πολύ έξυπνη η καταγραφή από τον Αρχαιολογικό χώρο της Κω,με τα τρία διαχρονικά μνημεία να στέκουν ακόμα και στις ημέρες μας αγέρωχα παρ' όλο το πέρασμα των αιώνων-χρόνων από πάνω τους.Το απογευματινό φως κάνει ακόμα πιό συναρπαστική την παρουσίασή τους,
Gigidusud (10236) 2013-10-15 13:12
Beautiful composition with great architectural contrasts, splendid light and excellent framing. Well done!
mcmtanyel (5249) 2013-10-15 17:02
A lovely photo with vertical lines and a frame-within-a-frame, depicting remnants of three civilizations which have shaped the island before its current occupants. Good work!
jmdias (48351) 2013-10-15 17:33
very nice framing catching the minaret, the church and these ruins. very nice use of elements here.
lousat (64197) 2013-10-16 2:04
Hi Danos,100 points for a magnificent pic,a special warm light and a lot of different architechtures come from different years,a very rich composition taken in the best exposure,details and colors,i like it! Have a nice day and thanks,Luciano
josepmarin (56481) 2013-10-23 3:12
the square format works very well in your framing, and offers us a good visual angle, in order to admire the three architectural styles of different epochs, in a very nice graphical overlapping.
I like the good light and the natural colours of this sharp image, and the beautiful contrast between architecture and green vegetation.
A great work, my friend.
nikkitta (8951) 2013-10-24 16:02
Quite attractive and well composed capture, I would said there are for elements palm tree inclusive
Like the way you framed the Government House
I finish reading a book of travel written by a polish writer following Herodoto steps, till now exist the remains of old civilizations as can we read in your note
May be you search your Cambodia photos of the girls?
maloutim (9473) 2013-10-25 23:05
This is a delightful composition with the 3 architectural elements from different epochs. I particularly like the tower of the government house seen between the two ancient columns.
From another POV, you could have presented us 4 styles, adding the medieval bastion into the view !
Thanks for sharing.
serp2000 (33133) 2013-10-29 21:29
If you remember I've posted a photo from our TE-meeting in Athens with the same idea, when three different architecture style were located on the area. But without minaret only. ))
All the best wishes,
Angshu (52890) 2013-10-31 22:30
Good framing with the columns. The three vertical elements balance the picture well..the minaret, the tree and the columns..Nice side light which creates good colours. Good work!
Waylim (23312) 2013-11-01 18:44
Very nice POV using the column to frame the clock tower in the background. The vegetation in the foreground adds beautiful natural element to the composition. I like the warm colors and light, good photo quality as always.
