On the high speed ferry from Piraeus (Athens) to Santorini, we made a quick stop at the island of Ios. The weather was extremely overcast and I was disappointed to come so far and find rain. Luckily, we arrived in Santorini to full, blazing sunshine one hour later. This photo was taken from the ferry.
Ios is a member of the Cyclades island group. The island is known for its lively partying and nightlife. (We picked up many hung-over young people at this stop.) There are also beautiful beaches to explore. If I was twenty again, this would be my first stop!
PP: Autolevels, increased contrast, adjusted levels again, increased saturation, increased blue in midtones to improve sky, neatimage.

Great photo. I like the composition and color. I thought you might lighten the shadows a bit for enhanced detail. Nice feel.

With the colour saturation you create an earily unreal image. Amazing colours in the sea and sky, but this accentuated the white of the building. I would also have sharpened the image I think.

What is most striking in this picture is the contract between the volcanic black and the snow white of the church. I am a little disturbed by the pole: Otherwise the composition is perfect and so is the light, rendering the Aegean blue very accurately. Keep well - Good wishes - Izzet
