Imerovigli is a traditional village and it is the extension of Fira but is situated on a higher cliff. The name comes from the word "vigla" which means "day". In front of the village is located an enormous rock called Skaros. Until 1800, Skaros was part of the land and had a castle on it where all the administrative offices of the island were located. The village was almost totally destroyed with the earthquake of 1956, and the cliff-edge houses were abandoned but a tourist trade started up again in the 1970s. Today Imerovigli is a beautiful and quiet village and also one of the top areas in Greece for accommodation!

The POV is interesting, the depth of field is good: this is a nice picture.

This is a fine wide-angle landscape. The exposure is spot-on for my taste: in other words somewhat darker than most would do. I wonder if you deliberately under-exposed by 1/2 stop, or maybe altered the RAW file? It's saturated the colours beautifully, and created a more atmospheric shot. I haven't been back to Santorini since 1983, but you may have inspired me to return!
