There's a light at the end of the tunnel and in this case even a girl is waiting there.
The covered walkways on the Cyclades always look very picturesque. Especially as the ceilings as much as the side walls and a part of the floor are painted white. Sometimes there's even a bit of blue in it.
The unpainted parts of the floor provide a good sense of depth.
Best regards, Paul

A light at the end of the tunnel - and a hot looking lady too, it seems. I love the vertical frame, the predominance of the white adobe walls, the converging lines and your excellent management of the shaded areas and bright lights. Stunning work, and something which is so typically Greece!
Warmest wishes and happy Sunday

Superbly managed the strong light at the end of the tunnel, Krzysztof, in a shop that i call "a tourist-trap's".
The lady who is standing in the perfect center, a good contrast collected, and with fine clarity.

A nice photo with shallow depth of field and a human scale that can take into account the place.
Thank you for sharing and good Sunday.

la foto è molto piacevole e ben studiata.
Un tipo di fotografia che a me piace molto e che appare particolarmente ben realizzata per come hai saputo sfruttare in maniera eccellente il bianco delle pareti per creare una cornice che assolve anche la funzione di guida verso il soggetto che appare sullo sfondo.
Ciao e buona domenica

Niezwykle ujecie, tak bardzo rozniace sie od stereotypowych zdjec z Santorini.
Od strony technicznej, uwazam, ze podjales dobra decyzje, zeby przeswietlic sciane widoczna na dalszym planie, poniewaz stanowi ona bardzo dobre, kontrastowe tlo dla scenki ulicznej.
Najbardziej podoba mi sie oryginalna kompozycja z duza ramka i glownym tematem zdjecia zajmujacym niewielka przestrzen, a jednak tym bardziej obecnym i przyciagajacym uwage.
Nastepne zdjecie do mojego fav theme. :)

a wonderful picture from Santorini, you captured so well one of the delights of walking through the meandering alleys of the Greek islands. The perspective has been used in a masterful way and the sense of depth is superb. The fleeting image at the bright end of the tunnel is well defined and interesting. The textures are natural and attractive, light and shade are so evocative. I particularly like how the softness and mild tones in the shade are abruptly interrupted by the light. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great day,

beauty of a shot with an amazing idea and thought,and the way you have managed the light is really commendable.

bardzo ciekawy pomysl na kadr i swietne wykonanie. Tunel sprawia ze zdjecie ma ladna glebie i prowadzi oko w strone dziewczyny na jego koncu. Bardzo dobrze poradziles sobie ze swiatlem - wszystkie szczegoly scian i posadzki sa dobrze doswietlone a blask otaczajacy dziewczyne przyciaga wzrok.

Another beauty. This point of view is so surreal, when I saw it first it made me think of somebody waking from a dream, the walls being the barrier between reality and dreamstate. They create such depth and the the contrast at the end as we come across the intense light and the sight of the lady at the stall. I've never come across this covered walkway style of place before, so what a cool way to discover it here.
Thanks as always.

Intéressante composition, ce tunnel menant vers la lumière et les couleurs, mais aussi sur la jeune fille aux cheveux long bien placé au milieu de la sortie du tunnel, belle réalisation

Great POV! Feels like looking though a frozen tunnel.
jcpix (13688) 2014-02-02 13:35
Whoa, talk about tunnel vision! :) Another one of those instances where this feels to place me right within the scene, as if I'm making my way towards the cross street up ahead. This is also when the blown out highlights works just fine, I actually enjoy the overly bright whites, they create somewhat of a surrealist imagery. And how brilliant to include this lady with a black dress, smart thinking my friend. I'm guessing almost any deep color of dress would have worked, but the black creates such a stark contrast that it's made for the sweetest of focal points with this super perspective.
If it weren't for the casual dress, I might think I'm in an ice cave, the subtle blue tint under this passage is cool...in all senses of the word. :) Gritty textures too, I want to reach out and brush my hand across the monitor. Probably nothing more than just another street in this town, but you've managed to make it an attractive one with a creative arrangement. Just super! Have a great new week. Take it easy.
Wishing you the best,

Nice shot through the the white tunnel.Very well captured.TFS.

Excellent perspective through the 'tunnel' towards the open end, credit to your great patience and timing to get the right subject filling the space.
Inevitably in situation like this the light is pretty ferocious by looking at your exif data - it's high noon - I normally avoid. You have controlled it quite well but the white wall is burnt out causing lot of distraction. This is my sincere comments, nevertheless its a fine effort, Congrats

pominelam troche Twoich pieknych zdjec, ale sprobuje nadrobic zaleglosci. Super kompozycja, robi wrazenie. Na pierwszy rzut oka to pomyslalam o oblodzonym tunelu w okresie zimy, ale na koncu jego okazuje sie ze jest to piekna pogoda sloneczna pogoda. Bardzo ladna praca i suoper perspektywa. Moje gratulacje.

Excellent view through the house "tunnel". I think that you spent some time studying composition and wisely waited for the lady in the opening without other crowd around. The framing is spot on - you have positioned the end of the "tunnel' nicely in the middle. All in all, a superb photo. Well done.

very successful the view as the presentation of this narrow alley in Santorini,with the woman looking the products of the touristic shop on the backdrop to be a pleasant optical event,making the shot so beautiful and unique.I like the excellent light and colour management as the clarity of it.Well done.
serp2000 (40350) 2014-02-04 9:58
You are right, this is a simple but very interesting and creative work, well done. Perfect DoF. One my friend have told me Santorini is the most picturesque Greek island. But I have never been there and I can say for Corfu only.

Lep pogled i trenutak ...
Dobar trenutaks animka, kontarst i perspektiva, lepo pokazan beli prolaz i devoka na kraju, lepe boje.
Prijatno vece i lepa noc, sve najbolje.
Nice view and a moment ...
A good moment shot, kontarst and perspective, well shown white aisle, and girl was at the end, beautiful colors.
Have a nice evening and night, all the best.

wow, I like the tunnel. Excellent POV selected. Your play with light here is superb. Like the details in the shadowed portion. Colourful view at the end of the tunnel. Very well composed shot which has a nice graphical impact. Tfs.
annjackman (19933) 2014-02-06 7:36
I enjoy this tremendously with the perspective through the tunnel. The bright white (burnt out) area gives a creative look to the picture and works well for me. Lovely colour and textures in the walls.
Kind Regards, Ann
eldancer1 (28513) 2014-02-06 7:53
This is like a dream sequence where a beautiful lady is waiting at the end of a tunnel, I like it. Good use of the tunnel as frame and to capture the woman. You could have darken this a little, otherwise well done, tfs.

Ciao Krzysztof, lovely composition with nice scene, excellent perspective, splendid light and wonderful soft colors, very well done my friend, ciao Silvio

Love this, down this old passage way and we get this surprize view of a tourist at a gift stall. Splendid.
josepmarin (57823) 2014-02-10 4:51
I believe this one is your 200th photo published here. Congratulations!
I like the fantastic tunnel effect of the covered alley in this white village in Santorini.
And the great light at the end of the tunnel, with the girl waiting there.
You have managed perfectly the difficult change of lighting, with a good exposure management.
A superb composition.
Kaisa71 (228) 2014-02-21 12:56
You have been very successful with the exposure as the shadowy tunnel and bright daylight are difficult to capture on same photo. Or maybe it is not but I have had difficulties doing that. The angle of view is nice and the woman was perfectly in the right place in right time. Thanks for sharing!
Best wishes, Kaisa
