Simple and detailed view of typical Greek Orthodox church.
You´ve seen many pictures of them here on TE,so I decided to go a different way and to present to you just a part of its dome with the cross.
Big thanks for Jason(jcpix)for helping me to make decision about this one.
I hope you´ll like it!

I like it. A minimalistic image of a proud structure. An effective, eye-catching composition.

"Simply" beautiful! Great colours!
Have a good day

Hello Krzysztof - I see you have also gone for a minimalist post today. Yours shouts Greece in the loudest of voices, simple colours and a classic symmetrical composition work well here. My only reservation is the lack of detail in the textures, your upload has a flat quality which is most unlike your usual posts. I think perhaps the shot is marginally OE. Have a good day and TFS Rosemary

simple and iconic symbol of Greece but one that is both imaginative and beautiful. A subtle mix of tones and shapes but one that works and is strangely mesmerising. Love the original way of presenting this image. Top class.
Regards - Brian
Can I just say a big thank you to all who were concerned about us southern Englanders during the recent coming of St Jude (the storm). Despite being a bit scary with the wind howling around the house sounding like an approaching train; thankfully I survived as did the huge tree that sits outside my property. B.

a crescent and a cross together...? lovely colors and simple and minimal shot.very nicely thought out indeed.

Indeed very simple but made in very high quality.
This everything in the Greece colours.
Excellent captured, nice composition, pleasant presentation with this cross as eye catcher.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice Tuesday,

harmony in blue and white, simple nbut well taken shot.
Fine outlines under superb light condition.
Well done photojob.

The light here is superb-- Illuminating the cross and the dome full of rich colour combination and superb contrast. It's a cracking simple image that stands out on its own merits but most of all I love the clean clear crisp colours and lines give it a crisp finish. Very well done, Congrats.

Thank Jason, it's perfectly framed and the 3 colors are stunning in this simple but eye catching picture.
williewhistler (10899) 2013-10-29 9:40
a very simple image that is immediately identifiable,the blue-white contrast works very well whilst the graphic shapes are delightful.
Kind regards Les.

you've really captured so much in this minimal composition and its splendid luminous colours. I think there's much about the greek spirit and mentality in the roundness of the forms, the light absorbed and reflected, the combination of these particular colours in their most clear and attractive tones. I don't mean the symbol of the cross per se, I'm only referring to forms, light and colours that don't need any interpretations. Your picture is very pleasant and conveys balance and joy. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great evening,

une très belle photo, simple et d'un bel impact.
J'aime beaucoup ce type de composition ou un simbole, un détail et les couleurs sont mis en évicence.
Romano46 (14520) 2013-10-29 12:10
uan foto straordinaria nella sua semplicità ridotta all'essenziale.
Due oggetti e tre soli colori: la cupola e la croce ed un magnifico cielo a fare da fondale.
Una eccellente intuizione con una composizione impeccabile.
Ciao e buona serata

Bardzo dobrze zrealizowana kompozycja. Sprytny zabieg z kolorami nadał scenie wyjątkowości. Dla mnie super! Przyciąga uwagę:)
Mics (397) 2013-10-29 19:13
Good decision to present it this way, very light to look at and yet eye-catching. TFS!
jcpix (8362) 2013-10-29 19:56
So yes, here it is! :) As we've discussed, the "stripped down" nature of this is what I find the most captivating, as it creates three distinct and solid colors...each with their own shape. The color combination feels quite tropical, which I believe makes this more attractive knowing that it's actually Greece...that idea of it being close, but not quite there. Hope that makes sense, almost like a bit of a tease to such a location, but leaving an air of wonderment.
This is something I could see fitting in quite well in an exhibit with the same conceptual approach, the minimal material with bright and vivid impact. Much in the same vein as Serghei's photo today, I would classify this as abstract geometry. Hope that doesn't come off as too "artsy," I'm just kind of going with my impression...I'm really not some sort of intellectual critic. :) In fact, just the opposite, I think the simple construction here speaks to my perception. Crisp and clean, I really like this end result. Great work my friend, and as always...keep 'em coming! Enjoy the day ahead.
My best regards,

This cross positively glows under the bright warm sun, and the combination of the two blues here is beautiful. I think the blues help the cross to glow like this and as you say, its so different from the Orthodox images we normally see. Well done for an original and beautiful composition on this.
All the best
subhendu_bagchi (23657) 2013-10-30 6:59
wow! Beautiful minimal work. Love the soft contrast of colours. Great close composition. Very well done. Tfs.
Cricri (95421) 2013-10-30 10:28
Minimaliste, merveilleux dans le contraste du bleu et blanc, des couleurs typiques de la Grèce, belle idée cde réalisation , merci aussi a Jason :-)
macjake (48357) 2013-10-30 12:07
haha...yes, typical greece or greek island colors and subjects.
full frontal :)
sometimes the simple manner is the best. that powder blue color on the bottom is great, we don't get to see much of it in photographs.
see you around
delpeoples (50271) 2013-10-30 18:11
Hi there Krzysztof
A simple minimalist photo. It's very striking and I love the strong blocks of colour, the lines and curves. It could easily be the flag for this part of Greece, don't you think? Nice spotting and thanks for this inventive composition.
mvdisco (17416) 2013-10-30 19:04
Hi Krzysztof, Bonjour,

Warm greetings from southern Spain.

bardzo prosta, a jakże atrakcyjna kompozycja. Znakomicie wybrany detal i rzeczywiście typowe kolory = bel i błękit. Znakomite zdjęcie.
PaulVDV (18754) 2013-11-02 3:02
A simple minimalist composition but a wonderful one!
Very well observed.
Best regards, Paul
Hansaphotos (6255) 2013-11-02 13:25
A splendid minimalistic shot. The symmetrical composition was probably the best choice. A fine contrast between the different elements; we have the typical Greek with the white and deep blue, but we also have a touch of turquoise nicely - and wisely incorporated in this lovely minimalistic composition. Excellent:) Thanks.
Enjoy your WE.
josepmarin (57069) 2013-11-04 7:05
a simple and powerful minimalist composition, where you have played cleverly with this dome, the white cross and its contrast over a fantastic blue sky.
Less is more, of course!!
A great work.

rzeczywiscie kolory sa piekne i nie dziwie sie ze jest to kolor Grecji. Przepiekna kolorystyka. Kompozycja prosta ale niezwykle pieknie wykonane wraz z symetria. Piekna praca. Podoba mi sie the bialy krzyz centalnie umieszczony na Twoim zdjecie przedzielony pieknymi niebieskimi kolorami. Sliczna praca i moje gratulacje. Bardzo mi sie podoba.
