Photographer's Note

The image is from Lefkes, the highest village on the island of Paros, located in the mountains at the center of the island.In older times Lefkes was the capital of Paros and nowadays it is an absolutely traditional Cycladic village with beautiful white -washed houses, narrow, paved streets and Cycladic vaults.
I took this shot on our way to the village, following the Byzantine pathway (it took us about an hour as i remember) through olive groves and beautiful countryside.

The image in it's original version was too large (450Kb)to post, so i had to compress it a lot. I tryied to avoid noise, but it was impossible to upload a sharp, crystal clear image with such compression! I don't know if there is some solution to this problem, so i would appreciate any advice.
Auto balance and sharpening where applied before posting this. I hope you like it!
