mykonos island view
This is the Ibiza of Greece. A beautiful island in the Cyclades, which looks just like the postcards: white little houses with flowers and blue windows and doors, hand painted streets, windmills, pigeon keepers, chimneys, lots of little churches and wonderful restaurants and cafes.
Many of the Greek "jetsetters" either have a house here or visit every summer, and the nightlife is very developed. You will see a lot of eccentrics especially at night time. Even though it is a party-island, it is not as loud as for example Ios and Kos, so you can get sleep at night.
Mykonos has a reputation for being a summer resort for mainly gay men, which is not entirely true. The gay audience is present, but it is also a glamorous place for the rich and famous, which is painfully clear to whoever has a look at the prices on the menus.
The island was once very poor, and the people tried to survive on fishing and stock breeding on the harsh land. A major industry was also ship construction. Tourism has turned the economy over since it started in the 1950's and the locals have a double attitude towards this: it may have saved the economy but some also feel that it has taken over too much.

In my opinion the contrast is too high and very sharp which could have been controlled.
I like the composition of this pic.

le bout de ce bâteau bleu et blanc quel cadrage et mise en valeur avec la colline ne fond et ces maisons blanches qui ressortent mervielleux.
Bravo et amitié

Lovely colour contrast between the deep blue water and the rocky shore with the scattered buildings. The foreground boat is perfectly placed with great colours and details leading to the smaller boat in the distance. Informative note that puts the picture in context.
Thanks for sharing and have a great day.

Another attractive Greek hillside with classical white houses clinging to the Earth, and enhanced by the golden hue of the hill, and the bow of the blue freighter in the foreground.
thanks for sharing,

Excellent photo arrangement in superb light and nice well saturated colors. The large ship is an excellent focal points, and there is superb color contrast between blue sea water and the brown shore with white village houses.
Very well done.

You're capturing well this landscape by a good angle and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see a lot of dwellings which are built on the hill of island at the opposite shore. Its white outer wall seems to suit with blue sky very much, and the colorful ship with blue, red and white in FG draws out a good impact.

A welcoming composition, the stunning freighter looks as if pointing into the beautiful coastalscape, a very clever observation. Indeed a picturesque sight, great dof, full of rich colours, excellent clarity and it's so competently exposed. I love how the vivid deep blue water compensate the sky and boosting the general view superbly. An evocative shot that you've conveyed the beauty seamlessly, Well done, Congrats.

Charming capture (a bit overexposed) but well organized with the hill high in the horizon
Like the aproaching white boat
