Lep pogled na stari mlin i gospodju ...
Dobar trenutak snimka, kontrast, lepe boje.
Dobar rad, lepo pokazan mlin i trenutak.
Ostao je stari mlin i secanje kada je mlep zitarice.
Imajte lep dan, sve najbolje za vikend.
A nice view of the old mill and the lady ...

Merci pour le partage et bonne journée.

an interesting presentation of old windmill. Amazing construction and details. Photo is well done. I like it.
Have a nice day.

Hello Danos, beautiful view of this famous windmill. How fantastic it looks in the light of setting sun. I wouldn't mind to be where this girl is admiring the view.
macjake (55450) 2013-09-26 23:42
This is a stitching of two photos? I would never have thought that.
I like the close up view this time, we get to see more textures and grains.
The light and colors are just perfect.
I bet alot of people come for sunset, must be beautiful.
carlo62 (31294) 2013-09-26 23:44
bella inquadratura stretta, con il mulino in bella mostra e le persone che ci mostrano le sue dimensioni.
Bello scatto, pulito e piacevole.
kato (11630) 2013-09-26 23:44
You're capturing well this scene by a good composition and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the huge windmill with big round wheel, and hut of white outer wall and straw roof. It's beautiful color contrast with blue sky. A nearby family of mother and her son makes a warm story in this image.
Fis2 (84498) 2013-09-26 23:56
Nice scene ;)
I like POV and colors.
A very interesting construction.
I love windmills.
Have a nice day
rbassin (17535) 2013-09-26 23:59
une magnifique prise de vue,un gros plan bien cadré avec de bons contrastes et détails intéressants.
Lumière très agréable également.
mirosu (13340) 2013-09-27 0:30
You're capturing well this scene by a good composition and bright tone, so it's interesting and impressive to see white windmill with elegant shape. The whole is harmonized well by beautiful color balance of white and blue. And, the sitting lady draws out an additional lively atmosphere, too. Well done.
Kugart (1778) 2013-09-27 1:09
Nice to see a close up of this lovely windmill where all details can be admired. Good clarity and sharpness shows textures on the wall and roof of the windmill. Good POV shot against the perfect blue sky. Very nice.
Royaldevon (28633) 2013-09-27 1:51
Good Morning Danos,
It does not surprise me that your shot has had so much attention for it really is a lovely shot. The windmill is strongly positioned and has been captured with amazing clarity. The couple, however, turn this into a romantic scene rather than just a beautiful shot.
Have a great day,
ikeharel (55948) 2013-09-27 2:11
Couple of our friends are now(friday) in Mikonos, told them to go and see those old mills atop the hill.
All my knowledge about this island is from TE & your photos, but see it for real is something else...
Fabulous shot in close range on the old windmill, nice place to stroll like the youngsters here, and the great blue sky were in favor.
Have a nice weekend,
subhendu_bagchi (25579) 2013-09-27 3:26
namaste Danos, again a nice one with white and blue, again a nice one from Greece. The view with the windmill is superb under such clear sky. The lady siting under it created here a nice environment for photography and you utilised it superbly. Excellent composition. Really enjoyable. Tfs.
ChrisJ (96522) 2013-09-27 3:53
Good graphism of the dark windmill blades against the lighter blue sky. Superb sharpness and smart choice of a vertical format to accentuate the height. Excellent textural details in the fg part of the stone windmills base. The people adds scale. I know from first hand experience it is almost impossible not to have tourists in this popular locale! Tfs!
gervaso (9979) 2013-09-27 4:31
Excellent stitching job in this picture, if you hadn't told us it's stitched, I could never notice that! Very good light and colors, and the framing at the end is perfect! Wonderful composition! Perfectly done!
pierrefonds (56400) 2013-09-27 4:42
The presence of the woman has an effect of scale. The point of vie iw showing with precision the details and colors of the wind mill. The quality of the light is enhancing the beauty of the colors. Have a nice day.
cornejo (30572) 2013-09-27 4:51
Hello Danos, excellent photography in this beautiful and interesting mill, beautifully captured in this beautiful image with good sharpness, depth, nice light and color. Excellent and interesting job perfectly done, congratulations my friend. Thanks for sharing this beautiful work.
Good afternoon and happy weekend.
Best wishes from southern Spain.
mkamionka (30212) 2013-09-27 6:35
lovely capture of the couple under the windmill. This place is so extraordinary that it deserves to be presented from all possible angles and distances.
I like this close up very much -we have a chance to admire all the details even the rough surface of the windmill wall.
Have a great weekend,
resat1972 (7326) 2013-09-27 8:01
güzel bir kare
bir an don kişot geliyor sandım
Noel_Byrne (23248) 2013-09-27 8:15
Nicely done, this is a great scene of the windmill, and especially with the mother and child standing in front adding a nice human touch, and enforcing your note about being popular with tourists. I love the design of these mills, unlike any I have seen elsewhere in the world, and it looks great against that deep blue sky.
All the best
eldancer1 (27121) 2013-09-27 9:30
When I see a windmill I think of the Netherlands, I guess you could say I'm naïve, but the Greek windmills are beautiful. Nice to have the people for scale. Good lighting and sharp details. Well done, tfs.
adramad (37285) 2013-09-27 10:00
Superb this close-up of the mill, which gives us a good definition of the details and textures, the couple beside us good at the same proportions of the same.
A perfect colorful natural.
A very bright image with optimum clarity.
Have a nice weekend.
All the best.
Romano46 (17408) 2013-09-27 10:03
impossibile non soffermarsi su questo mulino divenuto il simbolo di Myikonos, ormai assunto a simbolo di questo luogo turistico, anche se la sua opera a favore dell'uomo è cessata per lasciare il passo a lavorazioni meno tradizionali.
Ha perso le vele ma i colori che lo contraddistinguono sono rimasti quelli di un tempo e lo fanno stagliare nel cielo con notevole risalto, felice di esistere ancora per la gioia dei tanti visitatori.
In fin dei conti si rende ancora utile anche se in maniera diversa.
Ciao e buon fine settimana
abmdsudi (42528) 2013-09-27 10:12
This is a splendid picture that catches the immediately attention where the low warm light colorize the sky and the eye catching windmills. Good pov, placement and details with excellent scale reference and the striking contrasting colours. Thanks to your usual seamless photo work, Congrats.
ourania (30063) 2013-09-27 12:03
πολύ όμορφη σκηνή, ο ανεμόμυλος και το ζευγάρι μοιράζονται ένα θαυμάσιο κάδρο. Η προοπτική που έδωσες είναι εξαιρετική και κάνει την τεράστια ρόδα να μοιάζει ακόμη πιο εντυπωσιακή. Προσπαθώ να φανταστώ πώς άντεχε ο μύλος τη δύναμη των φτερών του:) Πολύ ευχάριστο και ρομαντικό το φως της δύσης, τα χρώματα έχουν μια υπέροχη φυσικότητα. Αναρωτιέμαι μήπως κατέγραψες μια πρόταση γάμου κι ελπίζω το ζευγάρι να τύχει να δει τη φωτογραφία σου:) Συγχαρητήρια και ευχαριστώ!
Να είσαι καλά, καλό Σαββατοκύριακο,
Silvio1953 (120494) 2013-09-27 13:01

Nice view of windmill. Composition and colors are perfect.
I like the contrast between white windmill and blue sky.

Cricri (105197) 2013-09-27 22:57
Une belle idée ce gros plan d'un de ces moulins célèbre, bonne appréciation des détails sous une sublime lumière, belle composition
bayno (18342) 2013-09-28 0:35
the picture is very nice and well composed, the colors are vivid and contrast well with each other, really characteristic old windmill, the focus seems accurate on the mill but not on the pretty girl...
have a good WE....
Miguel82 (22799) 2013-09-28 4:57
Windmills are one of the symbols of Mykonos Danos, good close up of that structure, excellent inclusion of that girl, some salt resistant vegetation also, your new copyright style is cleverly placed, thanks, have a nice saturday afternoon
bukitgolfb301 (35412) 2013-09-28 4:59
Hi dear Danos
Another greatly fantatsic image of great combination of tatseful wind-mill with charming(maybe) lady in the best framework.
All the best and have a good Saturday! Takero
jacquest (18549) 2013-09-28 6:39
The pair adds life and peacefullness in this superb image of the mill. The end of the day light gives good colors and the sharpness is very good for a distant shot.
papagolf21 (85416) 2013-09-28 7:20
Bonjour, cher Danos,
Le moulin vu de près donne une impression de gigantisme.
Son toit de chaume ou similaire et sa grande roue habillent joliment l'ensemble.
Les personnages présents dynamisent la réalisation.
mohammad_H (9170) 2013-09-28 8:30
Part of the old wind mills industry, the tourist industry, attractive, beautiful and spectacular views
nikkitta (14582) 2013-09-28 16:49

Geis sou Danos
"Love is a many splendored thing" especially when expressed in front of this greek icon of poetry!
Many compliments for the perfect stitch, I could not find any failure in the "netted" wind wheel.
shevchenko (19271) 2013-09-29 20:43
Good vertical format to frame the windmill and visitors, the magnificent windmill is good contrast to some other small things at foreground, nice blue sky as background, fascinating view in a suuny day, distinct photo, good shoot.
geoant68 (331) 2013-09-30 6:56
Δάνο γεια σου,
η επικόλληση των δύο φωτογραφιών δημιουργεί ένα εξαιρετικό αποτέλεσμα,με την ποιότητα να είναι τόσο εμφανής.Το ζευγάρι κάτω από τον μύλο,συμπληρώνει το όμορφο σκηνικο,
pyffepa (625) 2013-10-01 12:09
A lovely picture with great colors.
When blue is not present on walls, the sky is a key replacement ;o)
I appreciate the presence of the persons to add ambiance to the photograph.
elenimavrandoni (14249) 2013-10-01 14:23
Δάνο, δεν υπήρχε περίπτωση να χάσεις εσύ αυτή την φωτογραφία, ο ανεμόμυλος είναι υπέροχος και η δυναμική παρουσία δίνει μια χάρη στήν σύνθεση σου πού κατα τα άλλα είναι οχι μόνο μυκονιάτικη αλλά πέρα για πέρα ελληνική!
αντε σε χαιρετώ αυριο πάλι
marina7 (8053) 2013-10-03 12:41
great close up of the windmill. Your country is the sunniest in Europe, nearly all of your pictures have the perfect sky.
Have a great day!
krzychu30 (15496) 2013-10-04 22:59
windmills so iconic for landscapes of many Greek islands(I´ve seen many on Santorini).
I like your capture of it here and how you present it to us.Just love the contrast between blue and white(very expressive in photography!),but also the presence of this girl,who gives a great sense of scale to the scene and makes it more lively.
Have a nice weekend
jemaflor (83619) 2013-10-06 0:32
A windmill well presented, good angle, nice sharpness and colors with this blue sky in the BG, Well too the lady to give life at the view.
josepmarin (57709) 2013-10-08 2:21
a good stitch work here, the image is sharp and clear.
I like this couple sitting on the stone fence and enjoys the beauty of the windmill, caught well in your composition.
The light and the colours have a great quality, and the polarized sky is beautiful.
Well done, my friend.
jmdias (54479) 2013-10-11 1:55
very nice view of the mill and the personages in front it. I liked the angle showing the structure and the contrast between blue and white. nice job.
Angshu (55373) 2013-10-16 21:06
Nice picture of the famous windmill in close distance with the tourist helping offer scale. The stitching is flawless and caanot be deciphered. Good light brings out fine textures. Well done!
maloutim (9635) 2013-10-25 23:10
Impressive close-up of this old windmill. It makes for an original photo, as windmills are rarely seen from so near. You made a very good stitch there, a skill I still have to learn !
Perfect clarity and colours.
gus72 (3719) 2013-10-26 2:05
Hi Danos !!
