A quieter street in the picturesque village of Oia on the volcanic island of Santorini, Greece. This particular street lies just beyond the centre of the village hence the lack of other camera wielding tourists, like me!

Santorini looks really beautiful in your shots(I can´t wait to see in on my own eyes in two weeks)
The scene has so much unique charm and beauty.These typical for Santorini´s landscape white buildings looks magnificent against blue sky.But I like also your perspective with the path leading our eyes towards the Windmill.
Beautiful and very atmospheric shot!
Have a nice day

gran bella prospettiva, una splendida presentazione di Santorini, famosa e degna del suo nome.
Colori molto belli e architetture tradizionali di grande pregio.

hi Brian, a lovely view here. Like the alley which leads our eyes to the windmills at middle. The warm tone of this image is really enjoyable. Like the contrasting colours also. A superb composition. Tfs.

Hello Brian ,
This is a picturesque alley between the two mills . What is really impressive here , is the way you've managed the difficult back light .

Du point de vue technique, l'image est bien fait, en termes de production artistique est un bon sujet, bon mélange de couleur, la lumière, la clarté

I can now say been there done that! And I wasn't disappointed either. Oia is far superior to Fira imho and that is demonstrated here too. Good sharpness and upward pov with excellent lighting and saturation. The graphism of the windmills against the blue sky is superb. Tfs!

I haven't been to Oia for 33 years. Then it was semi-derelict, from the last earthquake, many cave dwellings were uninhabited, as were many of the houses, there was hardly anyone about (on a Sunday morning - maybe they were all in church?), and the wind whistled eerily around. But my daughter was there last year and reports a very different vibe now. Your photograph reminds me of "Oia past", mainly because of the lack of people. But it's clearly been spruced up, and looks like it's inviting the camera-touting crowds! Charming view.

I have seen this scene several times before but you have definitely put your own stamp on it. You have used the textured steps very well, along with the contrasting smooth wall and stony edge, to create an irresistible lead towards the tall towers and the strongly positioned blades? The light is very well controlled and the details perfectly sharp.
My warm regards,

what a shot you got here!
I'm extremely impressed with the overall exposure levels from top to bottom.
so clear, so crisp, so sharp and well detailed.
I think its so easy to overexpose this scene but its picture perfect.
its a wow photo for me for control of the light.
a job well done!!
