During a stroll in the narrow alleys of the island everyone can see and shot scenes like this.Whitewash houses with beautiful colours,create a great contrast between them.

Hi Danos, good inclusion of these bougainvillea purple flowers, a simple and sharp image showing this type of architecture, fine colors, Good evening

un eccellente colpo d'occhio ed un taglio perfetto valorizzano molto bene questo angolo di Mykonos, inserendolo in una composizione assai equilibrata dominata dal bianco e dalle forme geometriche che ne sono l'essenza.
Mi domando quale sarebbe stato l'effetto con una luce più intensa, ma non sempre è possibile ottenere le condizioni di ripresa ideali. Spesso sta solo alla nostra capacità cercare di trarre il meglio da ciò che ci si pone davanti.
E a mio parere l'occasione l'hai sfruttata nella migliore delle maniere.
Ciao e buona serata
parvatibb (1387) 2013-09-10 12:05
I love the simplicity and the elegance of the photo. White background made a great host for yellow and red and hint of purple.
ourania (51103) 2013-09-10 12:12
πολύ ωραία ιδέα για μια πρωτότυπη παρουσίαση ενός γραφικού δρόμου της Μυκόνου. Πολύ διασκεδαστικό το παιχνίδι με τη συμμετρία, καθώς το παρατηρούμε μαθαίνουμε πολλά από τα στοιχεία που χαρακτηρίζουν την παραδοσιακή αρχιτεκτονική. Θα ήταν καλό, κατά τη γνώμη μου, να υπήρχε λίο περισσότερος χώρος στο κάτω μέρος του κάδρου, αλλά προφανώς δεν ήταν εφικτό. Μου αρέσει πολύ η δροσερή ατμόσφαιρα και τα απαλά χρώματα. Συγχαρητήρια και ευχαριστώ!
Να είσαι καλά, καλό σου βράδυ και καλή επιτυχία στην Εθνική:)

A very nicely angled shot. Great POV.
PaulVDV (32769) 2013-09-10 12:15
In the town of Mykonos one can discover lots of picturesque corners and streets. Here you found a beautiful corner with the stairs going up in opposite directions.
The red colour for the stair railing and for the window shutters is more typical than the white, I believe (although the most commonly used colour on the island is perhaps blue). Anyway the red is an eye-catcher and contrasts well with the white stairs and walls.
Best regards, Paul

Good frame and lovely colours.
I like it.

Hard ti imagine anything more appealing to a photographer!

Hello Danos ,
symmetry , but differences , too ! Well framed and exposed .
A good eye to catch this scene .
Silvio1953 (154255) 2013-09-10 12:59
Ciao Danos, lovely mediterranean composition, nice symmetry, excellent clarity, wonderful colors and splendid light, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio
Glint (6171) 2013-09-10 13:06
this is a pleasing graphic image. I like both the symmetry and the simplicity. Well seen.
nikkitta (17068) 2013-09-10 14:07
Not everybody see beauty the way you do and also create a composition where, as you said symmetry and colors are the only and main subjects
Like as usual the smart branch at the left
Like it, congrats
saxo042 (37968) 2013-09-10 14:27
A very good observation,two crossing diagonal lines, in different colours! A coincidence maybe, but a very attractive picture here. Totally very pleasant colours.
pierrefonds (71761) 2013-09-10 17:18
The red and cream ramps are the subject of the composition and they match well with the shutters. The white walls are contrasting well with the other colours. Have a nice day.
kato (11630) 2013-09-10 17:42
You're capturing well this place by a good composition and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see this house with beautiful color balance of white outer wall/window/fence, red window/fence and yellow door. And, it's also tasteful for stairs design in architecture. Flower/leaf hanging from the upper draws out an additional good effect in this image.
mcmtanyel (29782) 2013-09-10 19:30
I love the simplicity of the scene and your clever composition. The cleanliness of the place is also noteworthy, it is hard to keep white impeccably white.
elenimavrandoni (0) 2013-09-10 21:24
Δάνο, θα σου αλλάξω το όνομα σου και θα σε λέω Μίδα..γιατι ότι πιάνεις χρυσός γίνεται...μια απλή εικόνα την μεταμόρφωσες σε ενα μικρό εργο Τέχνης!!Γιατί η φωτογραφία για μένα είναι φαντασία, διορατικότητα, σύνθεση, καλλιτεχνία, καλαισθησία, ποίηση, ρομαντισμός και δημιουργία! Και φυσικά τα έχεις όλα αυτά τα στοιχεία σε κάθε σου φωτογραφία αλλά και πολλά άλλα πού δεν με χωράει να τα γράψω..
με άλλα λόγια, φωτογράφοι πολλοί..Δάνος μόνο ένας!!!
dkmurphys (65222) 2013-09-10 22:10
Very fine detail, a well spotted image in a true artistic image. Well seen, have a good day.
Graal (103038) 2013-09-11 0:07
beautiful place and composition here. Good title. Symmetry I like, colours also. Fine idea, shot and realize. Well done photo.
Have a nice day.
krzychu30 (15512) 2013-09-11 1:35
just love the architecture with some strong contrasting elements and of course perfect symmetry you achieved.All this together make your scene so eye-catching!You´ve found really nice way to take a fresh look on beautiful Greek architecture.
Beautiful and creative composition!
Have a nice day
ikeharel (79281) 2013-09-11 2:06
Superb white walls, Danos, and a fine POV to enhance the symmetry with the stair cases.
The left door adorned with a beautiful mosel - an eyes catching element on scene.
Shaded area well collected on photo.
Chers, and kalimera,
*** *** I now read a book about Tsaloniki in the 1917 era, "The threads" by victoria Hilsop, who also wrote about Krete "Sophia's island", also red. Amazing time and tale.
gervaso (16857) 2013-09-11 4:37
The title calls the attention for what is the most interesting of your picture, a different symmetry you got! Excellent light, colors and sharpness! Beautiful and creative composition!
subhendu_bagchi (26089) 2013-09-11 4:42
namaste, here with symmetry I found a lot to asymmetry in the frame's right and left part. And I think it made it more interesting. Like the 'Y' formation by the stairs. Like the door and windows. The presence of the person created it more dynamic. Excellent one. Tfs.
jhm (161051) 2013-09-11 4:57
Two doors, two windows, one door with a lady if real eye catcher.
But a very nice picture taken with high quality and sharpness.
Very well composition, excellent captured. TFS.
timecapturer (49288) 2013-09-11 6:44
when I see shots like this I feel sad as I miss my Greek holidays so much. It is a simple image but one that captures the mood and beauty of the islands just perfectly. Beautiful!
Regards - Brian.
pinched the little Greek intro from Ourania.
mohammad_H (10126) 2013-09-11 8:50
The beauty and harmony of design, image beautiful view, beautiful colors with good clarity and sharpness
Good work and great quality
Best wishes to you
lousat (98379) 2013-09-11 9:36
Hi Danos,very original pic,not only for the composition,but without blu to contrast the white of facades as usual in Greece...ehhee..beautiful corner from this island that it's always on my heart,i like it! Have a nice evening and thanks,Luciano
amaryllis (37039) 2013-09-11 9:37
il suffit d'avoir l'oeil et le bon pour trouver cette rpise de vue avec symétrie, deux couleurs différentes, c'est excellent comme présentation
ChrisJ (119045) 2013-09-11 10:17
I like the x pattern formed by the convergence of the 4 stairs. Excellent sharpness and the yellow door at right contrasts well against the blue. Superb shadow detail & a good exposure on the highlights. Tfs!
clic (18574) 2013-09-11 10:48
Geia sou Danos
This symmetrical view appears much convenient for people living in those juxtaposed dwellings; for instance, women can borrow missing ingredients for cooking from others living up or downstairs!
Or am I rather mistaking this sumptuous array for a burlesque theater set in wich actors open doors and windows here and there to give thier comic lines, as the lady seems to do?!!
You pay a nice tribute to historic greek construction craftsmanship.
PiotrF (23138) 2013-09-11 13:37
I like the idea and attractive result. Nice composition .I am really impressed Composition and presentation are pleasant.
Very well done,
jcpix (13950) 2013-09-11 18:30
This is when I seem to find some of the most interesting opportunities, simply strolling around the streets and off the beaten path. Well, it has certainly worked in your favor here, this is a wonderful shot of the locals point of view! I love how you've composed this to include the symmetry of design in this unassuming corner of town. The door fill poster of the woman is a fun and unexpected surprise to this scene...certainly makes me look twice! :)
Very well exposed to bring out the subtle nuances of the shapes and textures seen here, especially considering the large amount of white. Looks great! Thanks for the notes today, I very much appreciate the sentiment. Enjoy the day ahead.
abmdsudi (58322) 2013-09-11 23:18
A nice facade with lovely solid shapes, combination of bold colours and the charm is further enhanced by excellent interplay of soft shadow. A Simple nice image nicely rendered and taken, TFS
mirosu (16273) 2013-09-12 5:49
This is an excellent detail photo. I like the whites and I like also to see the woman in the side door watching your photo action, and of course, I like the nice symmetrical composition with different colors on each side.
I miss you in 500px.
Noel_Byrne (33732) 2013-09-12 7:00
That is an excellent and slightly surreal scene. The light falling across it is very unusual, and the addition of the woman on the doorway in the lower left is a cool and inclusion. Perfect colors light and symmetry, and a great shot. Thanks for sharing.
All the best
claudeD (41902) 2013-09-12 8:45
amazing picture from Mykonos with a very fine symetrical composition and fine colors. Excellent sharpness and clarity. Very good contribution to TE.TFS.
WIth regards from Luxembourg
eldancer1 (36343) 2013-09-12 9:44
Awesome symmetrical composition! I do like the sameness of colors punctuated by the red and the flowers. Very well done, tfs.
jacquest (19047) 2013-09-12 10:54
I like the symetrical view ans the contrasting colors of the stairs. A good control of the light on these white surfaces. I think the lady is going to open the door and walk outside :)
s_lush (16602) 2013-09-12 12:27
You have found a very interesting composition, which is rather symmetrical on its main elements, but different on colors and details. In general, the picture is highly inventive and aesthetic. Perfectly well done!
bukitgolfb301 (45415) 2013-09-12 14:06
Hi dear Danos
Sorry for my late reaction to you as usual.
Another greatly tasteful and calm image of two tones colors via the best balanced shot. Your high inspiration is well explosion in this image.
All the best and have a good day! Takero
fabbs99 (17179) 2013-09-12 23:11
Fantastic composition of whitewashed walls with a superb color combination with the staircase and windows.The saturation and exposure were managed perfectly.Great work! TFS.

Hi Danos,a most beautiful surreal composition.Balance and color is perfect.All the best wolf.

Love the title & really like this image.
I have never visited the Greece & one day I hope to.
The content of your photo is excellent.
geoant68 (331) 2013-09-14 22:55
πολύ όμορφη φωτογραφία από την Μύκονο μα τα ασπρισμένα σπίτια και τα διαφορετικά χρώματα που είναι βαμμένες οι κουπαστές των σπιτιών κάνουν την σκηνή πολύ ελκυστική.
Η αφίσσα στ΄αριστερά και η κιτρινη πόρτα στα δεξιά την συμπληρώνουν ευχάριστα,
mkamionka (40163) 2013-09-15 2:55
very well spotted, nice symmetry indeed which is broken not only by color but also by some other details. I wonder why the right door is so much smaller then the left one? Are the people living there much shorter?
Have a great Sunday,
Herquin (7789) 2013-09-15 3:34
lovelies stairs in red et white . I like the door with girl .
Have a nice sunday .
jemaflor (103729) 2013-09-15 8:36
Well framed, good result this perfect symmetry, good colors contrast, tfs.
emilbo (22616) 2013-09-15 9:20
Comment ne pas s'arrêter devant une telle scène. Les résultats sont magnifiques et ce que j'aime surtout, ce sont les deux rampes d'escalier, une blanche et l'autre rouge. Excellente composition qui donne deux belles diagonales. La personne dans la porte ajoute de l'intérêt à la photo.
Bravo!... et bonne semaine,
cornejo (47330) 2013-09-16 9:23
Hello Danos, very good picture of this beautiful and interesting composition with symmetry playing very well captured in this interesting image, with good sharpness, light and color. Very good and interesting job well done, congratulations my friend. Thanks for sharing this beautiful work.
Good night and happy week.
Warm greetings from southern Spain.
Waylim (25436) 2013-09-17 16:52
Very lovely corner you have presented us here. I love it, excellent symetrical composition with diffent color stair railing and door, The one with woman adds a sense of humor to the image, it makes us smile.
shevchenko (20548) 2013-09-19 2:07
Nice to see two or more house holders painted their doors, windows and staicase handrail in different colors, beautiful white wall too, good frame to show it all, tidy shot, distinct photo, good shoot.
Hansaphotos (8757) 2013-09-19 10:21
What a charming scene you have captured here. A well composed shot with fine colors. Very nice work! TFS.
Have a nice evening.
Cricri (126824) 2013-10-03 12:09
Très jolie présentation, le contraste des couleurs, j'aime le poster (entre autre) sur la porte, bonne lumière
jmdias (69318) 2013-10-03 15:51
very nice image using well the symmetry and, at same time, using the differences of colors and details. very creative job. TFS.
oss (425) 2013-11-06 12:36
As a great fan of your country ive travelled over and over again i am captured by this picture which says it all but is a very special way: yes the cyclades are white washed but the symetry is eye catching as well as the contrast between the red and white stairs and the details on the left and right. A symetric photo is not easy but this works so well. You have already so much points for this shot but i have to add mine. Congratulations.
aliabazari (16304) 2014-10-16 23:56
Hi dear Danos
Very nice shot of this beautiful architecture. Excellent sharpness and color done. Thank you for sharing
iainsp (3298) 2017-01-18 10:45
I like the symmetry - with enough asymmetry to give the persian carpet feel. The poster of the women over the left hand door really makes this shot - there is suddenly an interesting human element. Like it, regards, Iain.
