Taken on the road linking Fira with Firostefani and further- Imerovigli.
Certainly the most scenic road on whole Santorini with lovely views of Caldera.
In Ws I attached another picture from this road.

Hello dear Krzystof,
Nice capture from Kyklades with good pov and layout.
The portrait format fits well to your compo.
And of course this beautiful old fashioned Street lamp adds a unique taste to your compo.
TFS and have a nice weekend.

The artistic lamp post adds perspective into the compo as good leading line into the sea views and beyond with the impressive shooting angle sweeping the eyes all the way. The evening light and rich colors are vivid with some wonder touch of warm light on the horizon. Even at low light you still have got great dof with acceptably in focus throughout as such it renders more of an interest to the whole shot. Wonderful capture and tfs.

remember this road, it is a bit hairy to drive along in parts especially if you meet a coach coming the other way!! However it does afford some spectacular views and this beauty is proof of that. Love the light in this gloriously executed shot. Magical!
Have an enjoyable Sunday - B.

these Islands really ARE something else aren't they!
love the WS photo too - gives a good sense of the roads and the views overall.
this photo here reminds me alot of a Brian Timecapturer type of scene :)
fine looking exposure on the light fixture, and with the hazy looking skyline. cool shot.
see you around

una foto straordinaria sia per la suggestione del soggetto che per la perfetta gestione della lucve molto calda che illumina il lampione ed il paesaggio.
Straordinari sia nitidezza che colori inseriti in una composizione molto efficace.
Ciao e buona domenica

What a view :) I see from the workshop that there is a small wall here, but I still feel a little dizzy looking at this view. The inclusion of the lamp is very masterful as it does create so much more of a feeling of depth inside the scene.
Looking out over this view does make me feel quite small. And I love the workshop too, the buildings of the town look like icing sugar as they are built around the top of the peaks, they seem to cling precariously to the tops. I can only imagine the views those lucky people have when they wake in the morning.
The gradation between blue sea and blue sky is stunning too, the horizon is a perfect color.
Thanks as always

I remember when they put lamp posts like this along the coast on Leros I nagged and thought they looked out of place but now can't think of the views without them. I'm grateful for the contribution they make to photographic compositions:) I like very much the bold and fascinating way in which you used this lamp post, adding great depth and dynamism to your composition, a superb graphical pattern against the vast view and clear sky. You've also connected your vantage point with the infinity ahead. I like very much the light and the colours as well as the little reflections of the light on the lamp post. The workshop photo confirms what an enjoyable road this is. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great Sunday,

Ta lampa 'na krawędzi' rzeczywiście przyciąga uwagę:) Piękna scena szczególnie to bezkresne morze oraz wyspy w oddali. Dodatkowo swiatlo zbudowalo świetny nastrój sceny.

Krzysztof Witaj very good photograph of this beautiful and interesting composition with a beautiful background, beautifully captured in this beautiful image with good sharpness, light and color. Very good and interesting job well done, congratulations my friend. Thanks for sharing this interesting work.
Good evening and happy start to the week.
Warm greetings from southern Spain.

Hey there neighbor,
Well, o.k....it's a day later now...but we're still side by side in the gallery. :) This is one of the three things (lamp posts, windows & doors) that I've always been driven towards throughout Europe, there's just something so charming about them.
Although this particular lamp post is not as ornate or stylish as most, it still stands proud along the roadway and makes for a wonderfully simple subject. You've once again been able to transform the rather routine object into an artistic image. This looks to be a straight drop off, and your WS inclusion certainly supports that context! With an ample fear of heights, I'm getting a bit dizzy just looking at this. :)
A marvelous view over the Mediterranean, and as Noel pointed out, the gradiation of blue's is smooth and tantalizing. With a lower horizon in this vertical composition, the lamp perfectly fills the negative space in the sky without being overbearing. Sweet touches of yellowish/orange colors accent the blue's.
Wishing you a good, and stress-free week ahead my friend,

Hello Krzysztof - Your composition here is individualistic and perhaps not to everyone's taste. I like the idea but find that the lamp is a little too dominant in the shot and I am torn between looking the the lamp or the softly graduated sea and sky-scape beyond. I wonder whether it would have been possible to stand back just a little bit here and place the lamp on the third? IMO, the shot may have a better overall balance. The WS really sets the scene for this shot and helps me understand the location better. Have a good week and warm regards rosemary

Dobre ujęcie tej atrakcyjnej lampy, patrzy na wybrzeże z gory, bardzo ładna kompozycja, czy będzie zdjęcie tego widoku w tle?

Pas mal du tout l'idée de mettre la lanterne en gros plan, offrant une vue magnifique sur la mer , une douce lumière de fin de journée qui caresse
horizon, belle présentation sur le WS aussi, superbe la route étroite!!!

With simple set-up you have created striking image, proving that you that you don’t need much for great photographs. The view up is excellent, the arrangement in portrait format superb. Excellent light.
Wish you a very nice rest of the week.

namaste, nice one indeed. The lamp shed is looking superb from where you see it. Excellent background colours with fine light management. Superb work. Tfs.

Certainly this road provides breathtaking views over the caldera, captured POV is very original, to include pretty lamppost in the foreground, WS photo is splendid with the road and the prospect of it on the cliffs.
Very good brightness and sharpness, with beautiful colors.
Well done. I Like
Have a good evening.
Best wishes ..
ikeharel (63815) 2014-01-21 9:44
A lamp-post on the edge of the caldera, what a marvelous sight, Krzysztof, and just wonder how this looks at night's.
The place is impressive, a unique earth formation, the sunken Vulcano.
Fine shot, as always, well applied.
fabbs99 (16819) 2014-01-21 21:12
Fascinating composition of the road and the lamp post.Great POV and good composition.Excellent composition,good presentation too. Very well done, TFS.
eldancer1 (32734) 2014-01-23 14:36
I like the composition, simple yet effective. Shooting against the sun is difficult but you did a wonderful job. Well done, tfs.
josepmarin (58027) 2014-01-24 2:30
in this singular composition you center our attention on the lamppost in a good vertical framing, but this fact do not hide us the gorgeous landscape of the Caldera in Santorini.
The field depth is really fantastic, and it gives us a nice feeling of calmness and freedom, as if we are a bird.
A great work.
adidas5nb (5685) 2014-01-25 10:07
well i saw this frame and said beautiful.the very fact that you can conceive such a frame is brilliant.love the vast expanses beyond.

Witaj dear Krzysztof
This intricate lamp pole reminds me a little of Italy and certainly that wonderful untouched coastline makes me nostalgic. Beautiful colours, the cooler tones contrasting with the warmer light in the FG and I like the haze on the horizon. Nice work, thanks for sharing.
Have a lovely day
