Oia, Santorini Island, Greece.
Santorini is a volcanic island in the Aegean Sea and one of the many candiates for the legendary Atlantis City.
The Greek name of the island is Thira, whereas its widely known name Santorini was given during the Latin Empire in the 13th century, to the honor of St Irene.
The current archipelago is formed due to an eruption when the centre collapsed and a rectangular pool, called "caldera", emerged among the islands.
Cropped, increased sharpnes & saturation, applied retouches and gradual toning.

yes, blue, THE BLUE...
but the lower part of the photo - I'll come back with a workshop, curious what do you think about
So how it is, is IMO a bit overcharged with many elements

An excellent panoramic picture about the roofs and two domes.
You chose an excellent angle, this care for depth and perspective.
Composition and colors makes these picture attractive.
Very well done, TFS.
