While walking from Fira to Imerovigli, I came across this "still life". What a wonderful view.

Excellent framing and composition. The colors are fantastic too.
The clouds are so cool.
The sky seems to have some loss of quality.

Beautiful picture, very well captured. Love the colors and lihgting.
You have a good view from the window.
Excellent sharpness. The sky is a little bit granular. You can use neat image, it will do the work.

I appreciate this lovely view on the sea with typical greek accessories in foreground. A beautiful postcard !

Excellent composition Cheryl. Stunning view and the colours are amazing. It all looks so strategically placed just for you to find and shoot. Well done.

facinating place, greece,europe civilization.
kinginexile (2598) 2005-07-02 3:37
Good composition, with plenty of dynamic for an almost still-life, thanks to the curves of the walls set against square bricks and the black mortar lines between them. The purplish light cast adds just a bit of monochromatism though, but that's IMO.

Cheryl, it looks like a painting...so cool. Great DOF, framing and sharp lines. Maybe you could enlarge it and hang it on your wall...that way you will always think you are looking out the window at Sanorini.

This place has been on my list of "Places to Visit" - your wonderful image makes me want to go there sooner rather than later. Your composition with the arch as frame works well and the vase in the center acts as a focus point. I have done a Workshop to reduce the noise visible in the blue sky. I have used a Dimage A1 and I must admit they produce very good images. Regards Colin

So very well seen, Cheryl. Wonderful framing within the frame, excellent colour and sharpness. A beautiful and well composed Greek scene.

Beautiful view through an unique window. This photo reminds me very pleasant time I spent on Santorini. Unfortunately only one day. Thanx!

Great composition. Great colour. Great light.
Is Santorini: great.
Thanks for share.
starbug (6924) 2005-07-06 8:11
you have a great collection of photos, it's really hard to decide which ones to leave out while choosing those to comment...I really love this one for tis composition,colours and light, it's a scene that may be both an artistic photo and an effective advertisement for the place...it's great!
wishnugaruda (1305) 2005-07-07 15:19
Wow - what a nice view and what intensive colours. You had the perfect light.
I wish to be there now.
Thanks and bye

Your composition is very nice and the idea very clever, but... I don't like the noise who is everywhere. Try Neatimage to avoid this kind of problems in the future.
pione (2031) 2005-07-11 11:07
Complimenti per questa grande composizione! Interessantissima costruzione dell'immagine, luce pulitissima e grande senso estetico!!
tjanze (5674) 2005-07-14 3:21
Realy good through "window" panorama.Great composition and warm colours.Well done.

Hi Cheryl -this is brilliant, a perfect frame for a beautiful view.
cmarino (2490) 2005-07-15 22:18
Stunning picture with a beautiful frame and marvelous composition. Superb colors and sharpness.
Very well done Cheryl !
summersun (4978) 2005-07-16 5:19
I must have missed that one, but it's truly beautiful. I like the blue and white here, typical from Greece, and the way this window frames the landscape. the vase and the pot with flowers are nice color touches as well. the little clouds look great in that perfectly blue sky. A very pleasant holiday picture to watch.
Elric (560) 2005-07-20 20:57
Beautiful composition and colours. Your framing is very inspirational and many would search for this specific view! I suppose the noise is a result of the comppression due to so many colours. I also suppose that the front part of the wall must be white. You could fix this because the purple is beautiful but unrealistic. Good work Cheryl. Keep on travelling!
Still life or not, I wonder sometimes what would the great impressionists paint if they have visited Santorini!
ayobami (1353) 2005-07-21 4:28
Beautiful image! The framing is perfect! I really like the curved lines at the top as opposed to most arches that are the same shape... the color saturation is wonderful and composition overall well done! At first glance I thought the pot said "alfresca", like out in the fresh air which is what this picture makes me feel! Just wonderful!
marcon (135) 2005-07-27 15:33
You have received yet so many smiles for this shot that I wanted to vote another one. But it semmed to me too much similar to the amazing traditional house where I passed the most enchanting days of our vacation in Santorini (at Imerovigli) that I couldn't go on.
And the shot is great, a perfect use of 'natural' frames. Never being there, one could think the colours are unreal, but I know they aren't!
jbweasle (9393) 2005-08-01 16:42
Cheryl, a beautiful picture of Santorini. This is one of my favourite places for photography. This window give a great frame to show us the "garden" and bay beyond. The pot of flowers is a very traditional touch.
evagelosm (144) 2005-08-02 7:16
Excelent photo, excelent composition, even the little clouds in the sky and the litle rock has the proper position.
dsidwell (9783) 2005-08-04 16:24
That needs to be a bottle of cool soda there at the end, Cheryl! This is an amazing and well composed image. The colors are astounding, and I find the whole to be so interetsing and engaging.
lcask (591) 2005-08-08 3:13
Beautifull composition. This is truly a window of opportunity - to live happily all the day looking at the sea...
annagrace (2467) 2005-08-10 21:19
Wow Cheryl, a totally stunning photo! The sinuous curve of the top of the window is gorgeous with all the typical colors of Santorini.
aslhann14 (203) 2005-08-19 14:48
The strange form of the window causes that it is a luxe frame for the landscape. Good idea. Luis.
paolino (1024) 2005-08-23 2:35
Really a wonderful view. A great picture, colors and compo are perfect.
Photograph2u (0) 2005-08-30 20:16
Hi Cheryl, what a wonderful view indeed, this is a beautiful photo and so much different of what we usually see of Santorini Islands. Great work of art.
I would be beautiful on my wall :)
Take care, Yan
teta5 (1203) 2005-09-14 14:07
Fantastic shot. Incredible colors! This picture is full of greek's symbols... I love Greece and I like your picture!
I added it to favorites.

stasia (405) 2005-09-19 14:09
Beautiful view ! Good composition! A very pleasant holiday picture to watch.
equalizer (29) 2005-10-03 9:20
very nice framing! I like the frame inside the frame
timleahy (2195) 2005-12-14 18:44
Yes, lovely image Cheryl. The framing is excellent. Great colours also, and very good depth.
manatee (4668) 2006-06-23 2:58
Exelent picture I love it. The frame made it by the arch makes even a wonderful picture and the best even inside of this frame the picture is so clear, clean and perfect.
Mojgan (44) 2006-07-06 5:51
Again! Another pretty picture of Greek Islands. The blue sea and blue sky are dreamy.
ramthakur (1517) 2006-07-10 0:34
Brilliant idea and a fine capture.
Framboisilla (5277) 2006-07-22 17:31
A nice composition with this opening on the sea ! BEautiful colors and contrasts...
Mistral (15402) 2006-10-26 16:03
beautiful natural framing and colours.
You lead me back in time 20 years ago while I was there...
A smile and yassou!
rj2747 (526) 2007-01-08 8:11
What a fabulous frame, it took me several seconds to realize that this wasn't a painting. Very simple composition but unique and entirely appropriate to time and place. The almost square composition works well too.
MadraRua (887) 2008-01-20 14:44
this really is like a painting.
Well spotted. Square frame works well.
Some noise in the sky, but who cares...
It really makes we want to get on a plane and fly down there tomorrow!
EdCooper (84) 2009-03-18 19:35
Just beautiful ! The sea, the frame, their colors - just great - and everything's in focus !
rhinos59 (610) 2012-04-09 3:26
Excellent management of the light and framing! nice colors,maby a little to much noise in the sky.
