People who see at the entrance of the Church is for the baptism of a little girl.
You can see in the WS the icon of the virgin Mary.The photo is not mine,i found it in the internet.
The Holy Temple of Virgin Mary of Chryssopigi was built in 1650.It is standing on a small rocky cape which is separating from Sifnos mainland, with a narrow sea channel. Inside the church you can see the picture of Virgin Mary which was found in the sea by fishermen and it is miraculous. Chissopigi is the protector of the island and there is a feast taking place, every year, the day of Resumption (40 days after Easter).

bellissima composizione, molti gli elementi che si vedono e apprezzano, comprese le persone che danno un tocco di vivacità all'insieme.
jmdias (62977) 2013-03-01 1:42
marvelous building. I liked the framing you got here, using the elements like the shadows and shapes. the white and blue is broken by the golden vegetation. precious job. TFS this beautiful corner of greece.
jhm (150872) 2013-03-01 3:05
This is a very nice picture with the white monastery as subject, also a nice addition the people on the stair in background.
Splendid perspective picture through your choice of the perfect angle.
Excellent composition, sharpness and clarity are pleasant.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice weekend,
jacquest (18927) 2013-03-01 3:43
The straigth line of the stairs leads the eye to the entrance and gives deepness. The light has been well managed with all this white and the sky makes a nice background. I like the flowers post at left adding an element.
saxo042 (37794) 2013-03-01 3:57
A beautifully composed picture with all the dominating blue and white colours. A very ell composed picture with the roof of the left building, together with the shadow, leading the eyes tiwards the group of people standing at the church. Well observed!

Hello DAnos ,
Excellent vue proche de ce beau monastère blanc , avec un très bon équilibre des lumières assez difficiles .
SnapRJW (31629) 2013-03-01 5:49
Hello Danos - Nice to see a closer view of the monastery you posted last time. The beautiful but simple architecture is well captured under good light and a fine blue sky.Very appealing shot. Warm regards Rosemary
Fis2 (95561) 2013-03-01 7:22
Curious place.Good composition and POV.
I like colors and light.
Have a nice evening
batalay (38557) 2013-03-01 7:23
The clear blue sky serves an effective backdrop for the hilltop monastery in this shot. If you have a image of the Virgin Mary that is featured in the Monastery, it would be good to see it in a workshop edition. Is it from 1650 or much earlier?
pierrefonds (64882) 2013-03-01 7:24
The distance between the bottom of the steps to the chapel is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the chapel and of its surroundings. There is a good contrast between the colors of the sky aqnd the colors of the chapel. Have a nice day.

I would not be surprised that strong winds could clang the bells in campanile that seems unprotected from bad weather...I can imagine the dramatic mood by heavy rain at night!
Your experience behind camera shows strict verticals as well as judiciously-exposed white tones, still showing details, for a perfect portrait of the holy place.
ikeharel (69311) 2013-03-01 8:17
In a connection to the previous post, premisses of the monastery in white are most beautifully collected from within, Danos.
Good clarity and contrast to blue sky aloft.
eldancer1 (36343) 2013-03-01 9:23
The closer view of this monastery is even better but I don't know the friars can concentrate on praying when they have an awesome view! Good pov and dof with sharp details. Great lighting and wonderful colors. Well done, tfs.
cornejo (40943) 2013-03-01 9:46
Hello Danos, excellent photography of this beautiful and interesting composition with interesting white buildings and the beautiful blue sky background. Beautiful picture nicely composed and framed, with excellent quality. Chaming job perfectly done, congratulations my friend. Thanks for sharing this beautiful work.
Good afternoon and happy weekend.
Greetings and all the best from the south of Spain.

μια θαυμάσια εικόνα που μεταφέρει τον θεατή εύκολα μέσα στην αυλή του μοναστηριού και στην όμορφη ατμόσφαιρα που επικρατεί αυτή την ηλιόλουστη μέρα. Τα χαρακτηριστικά αρχιτεκτονικά μοτίβα τραβούν την προσοχή μας σε πολλά σημεία της σύνθεσης. Η καθαρότητα της εικόνας και το βάθος είναι άριστα, το φως και τα φυσικά χρώματα είναι υπέροχα. Η ομάδα των ανθρώπων μπροστά στην εκκλησία δίνει επιπλέον νόημα στο σκηνικό. Συγχαρητήρια και ευχαριστώ!
Να είσαι καλά, καλό Σαββατοκύριακο,
Noel_Byrne (30191) 2013-03-01 10:25
Love the white finish to the buildings here, and the various levels as well, the steps lead us beautifully up to the church. That white finish looks superb against the blue sky, and the flowers add a wonderful splash of colour.
All the best
Romano46 (18472) 2013-03-01 10:59
impossibile ignorare questa tua bella foto che sfruttando a dovere il bianco tipico dell'architettura delle isole greche ha sfruttato un bel punto di ripresa per creare una composizione eccelente, nella quale tutto si trova al posto giusto e con la giusta illuminazione.
Perfetti sono anche contrasto, saturazione, nitidezza e luminosità che utilizzati nella giusta maniera hanno dato luogo a questo pregevolissimo risultato.
Ciao e buon fine settimana
Miguel82 (27670) 2013-03-01 11:16
A magnific picture of that greek monastery Danos,
Good light, superb colors, sunny day

Δάνο, πολύ όμορφη η φωτογραφία σου με πάντα τέλειες αναλογίες στα χρώματα, στίς καιρικές συνθήκες, ουτε ενα συννεφάκι..και φυσικά στο φώς.
Που θα πάει έρχεται το καλοκαιράκι...σε παρακαλώ ανέβασε κι άλλες απο Ελλάδα...
jcpix (13908) 2013-03-01 19:09
Great look into the courtyard of this monastery, I like the different perspective this gives from your previous shot. I'm impressed again with the exposure management to keep details and highlights visible and well defined. The bit of orange/red color from the potted plants is a nice touch to the predominantly blue & white scene. Clear and concise, well arranged. Lovely shot!
Have a great weekend.
kato (11630) 2013-03-02 0:54
You're capturing well this architecture by a good angle and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the clean/beautiful monastery in Sifnos island. It's impressive that it's unified by white color for main building, stairs and courtyard. The some jars with flower in courtyard give the tenderness like cool water in entire image. And, it's harmonizwd well with blue sky/sea.
abmdsudi (52499) 2013-03-02 5:40
I like the strong compostion and clarity of this shot, Very well seen and executed and what appears to be simplicity has often great impact as here. The strong color contrast liven the shot, Nicely done, Congrats.
Kamilutka (8105) 2013-03-02 8:30
your last two photos of this beautiful monastery are truly inviting to visit this place. White washed walls and all the shades of blue make this picture typically Greek - but in very good sense :-) Very good light management and well balanced colors. Perfect sharpness.
The whole compositions seems to be very carefully planned.
Thanks for sharing
fabbs99 (17133) 2013-03-02 9:29
The choice of white as the color of the monastery seems to be the perfect choice.There is lot of simplicity in the building as well serenity in the surroundings. Very well done, TFS.
gildasjan (43442) 2013-03-02 10:28
Une très bonne lumière latérale pour éclairer cette architecture si typique de la Grèce.L'image est bien cadrée et le rendu des couleurs est naturel.
raszid62 (18515) 2013-03-02 11:11
Όμορφη φωτογραφία - λευκούς τοίχους των κτιρίων μοναστήρι και μια όμορφη λευκή εκκλησία με το καμπαναριό. Αυτό έρχεται σε αντίθεση λευκό με το γαλάζιο του ουρανού και της θάλασσας. Τα χρώματα της ελληνικής σημαίας.
Εξαιρετική ποιότητα εικόνας.
adramad (44354) 2013-03-02 13:04
Sensational composition inside the monastery, which we saw earlier in this prime location, superb POV with the square in the foreground and the stairs that lead the eye to the main facade.
Wonderful white contrasts with the blue of the sky.
Fantastic brightness and optimum sharpness.
Enjoy the weekend.
EstelleJ (921) 2013-03-02 13:23
Lovely postcard photo of the beautiful white-wash kykladic architecture against the backdrop of blue! Always sunny and cheerful atmosphere!
jusninasirun (17162) 2013-03-03 0:43
The white architecture against the saturated blue sky are just irresistible for pictures. Exciting place with beautiful framing.
Thanks and have a wonderful Sunday,
krzychu30 (15512) 2013-03-03 1:51
the view from the interior of this Monastery is as beautiful as from outside of it.Typical for Greece white facades and stones on the pavement look deligtful.Love also the viea of the Monastery itself against the blue sky-the contrast is marvelous.
Magnificent presentation of this beauitful scene my friend!
Have a nice sunday
papagolf21 (98810) 2013-03-03 11:29
Bonsoir, cher ami Danos,
Deux très belles images offertes, un grand merci pour ces réalisations intéressantes à tous points de vue.
Un intérêt architectural d'une part, et un intérêt de la vie religieuse d'autre part.
dkmurphys (57099) 2013-03-04 3:08
Very fine capture of those wonderful simple shapes and colors.
Have a good week.

Θα είναι εντυπωσιακό το εσωτερικό του μοναστηριού. Όλη αυτή η απλότητα και οι καθαρές γραμμές ξεπροβάλλουν απο το μπλέ του ουρανού. Πόσο καλοκαιρινή εικόνα και πόσο περιμένω να έρθει.
mesutilgim (94034) 2013-03-05 11:51
Hello dear Danos,
Very nice capture of this seaside church with good pov and layout. Nice light and good compo.
A perfect TE entry with many interesting notes.
TFS and best regards
josepmarin (58343) 2013-03-06 4:36
I love this good game of light and shades on the wonderful white architecture of the islands, and its contrast with the deep blue sky.
The composition is harmonious and has a good structure of its elements, with a high graphical wealth.
The image is sharp and clear, and the luminosity is superb.
It's a beautiful work, my friend.
siudzi (34141) 2013-03-07 3:38
An interesting shot of this beautiful Monastery. Your POV gave a great opportunity to build such a great composition. Well done and executed. TFS.

serp2000 (43616) 2013-03-09 2:18
I remember these days in Greece too. But we had different weather and not so blue clear sky. Good point of view, very informative note, I love these traditional Greece colours, attractive composition!
UlfE (14641) 2013-03-09 7:14
A really fine composition with all the elements well positioned. You are make very good use of the lighting. TFS and have a nice weekend!
s_lush (16134) 2013-03-10 0:08
The inside territory of this monastery is designed and decorated highly aesthetically. You have captured it from a very favorable point of view to show the architecture and landscape design of the monastery in all their beauty. Perfectly well composed, masterfully captured and informatively commented!
shevchenko (20060) 2013-03-10 19:23
Good pov and good frame to show a group of architectures that built for different purpose, attractive view in a sunny day, nice blue sky and sea as background, thanks for sharing a fascinating view that full with relaxing feel.

The sun is missing me; thanks for this nice picture with a very good point of view on the church
Angshu (56750) 2013-03-11 21:28
Lovely viww of this church. You composed this well with a FG and then the stairs which leads upto the church, white in colour with the two bells and finely contrasting with the clear blue sky. The image is crisp and beautifully rendered!
mkamionka (35608) 2013-03-12 6:09
very interesting geometry, you have included so many rectangular shapes here plus the sun makes an interesting variety of color tones even if they are just various tones of white and blue -it feels very colorful.
Beautiful place, very pleasant presentation,
Kielia (24077) 2013-03-12 8:50
what a spectacular view! Once more did you capture this wonderful place very well. The light is fantastic and the photographer’s perspective is excellent.

Well framed from this pov, always beautiful to see these white house and church from your country, Good contrast with this strong blue for the sky, tfs.

Marvelous composition of this beautiful place, so many details...I appreciate this piece of blue sea....the light is superbe, good management, not easy conditions. Thanks for sharing!
nikkitta (17066) 2013-03-18 18:22
Great composition to show all details of the monastery, from a tomb to a lamp and the bells, all captured in a clever way with great contrast of the so blue sky
Greetings and TFS
macjake (66652) 2013-03-22 4:55
this scene reminds me so much of the scenes I witnessed in Tunisia...lots of white, lots of blue skyline.
i'm sure its very difficult to photograph this due to the lighting, but your shot turned out just fine to me :)
ACL1978 (7511) 2013-03-26 17:50
Lovely monastery here, Danos, and a nicely framed view of it with good strong light and shadow. The church itself makes an excellent subject against the clear blue sky. Thanks!
Robert1969 (7160) 2013-04-15 0:07
The wall, right in the picture, creates with it's
diagonal lines a nice depth and makes the picture
also exciting. The layers in the pictyre and the
stairs emphasize extra the depth. The light
management is also very good.
mcmtanyel (21420) 2013-05-21 8:58
Magnificient composition, brilliant light management, excellent colors, terrific POV. This one is really a 3 or 4 pointer!
