Rough white walls surround one of the beautifully smooth walled churches in the village of Exo Gonia, on the volcanic island of Santorini, Greece. The white all the more brilliant when set against an Aegean blue sky.

Hello Brian - I love the rough textured wall with the small green plant, the very strong light has shown up all the details really well. The smooth white walls with the deep shadows do contrast well against the deep blue sky but I find the curve of the paler blue dome with the cross the highlight of the shot. Lovely work and no shrinking violet! Warm regards Rosemary

The contrast between the white walls and the dark blue sky is beautiful. I also like the point of view.

Hello Brian ,
The contrast of the white walls with the strong blue of the sky is great . Effective low POV , too . The green graas in the corner is a fine bonus .

Well managed exposure on the highlights with major areas of blown out detail. Good sharpness & a nice upward pov. I like the textural details in the partly shadowed fg wall. Tfs!

Perfect graphical composition in beautiful colors. Most of all I like the spot of vegetation, like a hope for life. Well seen, enjoy a fine afternoon.

How blue can you go...this sky must be the limit.
Very Santorini, but my favourite details are in the textures at the bottom half of the frame. Great pov!

Une composition très bien prise en contre plongée, qui crée un bel effet avec le ciel bleu.
Excellente lumière,et ombres précises.

this is a beautiful and perfect composition.like the textured decayed white wall of the architecture.like the contrast between white & blue.
All the elements are here and everything is so harmoniously balanced. Executed with your usual accomplished technique and full of wonderful and captivating light. I love it!

Superbe tant dans la gestion de la lumière et le contraste des couleurs, un PVO, un peu original sur cette merveilleuse église

Very good point of view. I like strong blue colors with traditional architecture.

Excellent shot and an appropriate title as your photo is such good quality that it shows the roughness of hte foreground and the smoothness of the upper wall, also in brighter light. Excellent details that show so much the texture of everything. Strong light but you manage well and love that greek signiture blue sky.
