Santorini is a small group of volcanic islands located in the Aegean Sea, about 200 km south-east from the mainland of Greece. It is also known by the name of the largest island in the archipelago, Thera (or Thira) which is infamous for the huge volcanic explosion which destroyed the settlements thereon, and created the current geological caldera. It is the southernmost member of the Cyclades group of islands, with an area of approximately 73 kmē), and in 2001 had an estimated population of 13,600. Its spectacular natural beauty along with its eminent nightlife make the island one of Europe's top tourist hotspots. It is the most active volcanic centre in the South Aegean Volcanic Arc, though what remains today is largely a water-filled caldera.

Hi Janos, Nice photo!
This curiosity is an interesting theme in this case. The dog is well positioned in the frame, and I like the tight or should I say straigth lines of the architecture in the bottom of the photo. This is in contrast with the dog and the natural scene in the distance.
The dog and buildings are quite sharp and the quality is good there, despite that there is noise over the whole image (probably due to scanning, or film speckle?). But I like less the quality of the natural scene in the back, it's a bit dull coloured, not so sharp, just wished that it was a bit more in focus.
I hope you understand. But the composition is really nice, you have that one!
