During the 19th century the milling of flour constituted the basic source of income of Mykonos. Several of the windmills are still standing on the edge of Mykonos Town. They are no longer functional but are a huge draw for tourists like me!
The photo was scanned, dust and scratches were removed.

Wow! Very nice shot, Alli. Good capture. I like this diagonal angle of view. Nice colours. Well done.

These mills seems a combat line if the image would be taken in 19th century.
In our days, fortunately they are a nice touristic reclamation.

Good composition at the windmills.
I like the contrast between blue and white.

I was only in Mykonos for a few hours and we never made it to the windmills- maybe next time. Thanks for providing a great view and perspective!

I like the blue door in the left side of the photo that match perfectly well with the sky that win more and more room toward the right side of the frame. Great perspective. I remember this place and you have portrait it very well. Take care.

Nice shot of the famous mills... I like their roofs. The soft blue of the sky is very nice to contrast with the white walls.

Thank God the Greek are not in the war...:) Nice catch of the line of windmills. Well taken against the Blue sky wich proves a perfect background to the white and the straw colours.
Thanks for sharing

Very beautifull shot for the perspective; the nice diagonal, the great colors and light.
It's a beautifull picture.

Great composition and perspective, and I like the simple, limited range of colours. Very striking and effective - a timeless and dynamic image!

cool shot, did you use a polarizing filter to get the sky looking so blue? Great shot, thanks for sharing.

I like your "Mykonos windmills" photo. The blue and white contract is beautiful, and so is the line of windmills leading into the distance.

Great composition and POV,Alli. The blue one of the sky is fit very well with the white one of windmills.
O white was clear-cut.
Well done. Best wishes.
