It's the first time I see a picture of your Sony model and to be honest, I don't know how I haven't noticed your post before. It is without doubt the best color qiality i've seen on TE. Really remarkable!!
All the best

Tout simplement spectaculaire comme image . On pourrait en faire un poster vantant les beautés de la Grêce. Une belle forme de graphisme et une belle rencontre des formes dans une lumière exceptionnelle.

Geia soy Brian,
Great composition, light and superb colors.
npecanhuk (75592) 2010-10-21 7:41
That's another magnificent picture!
The architectural details on the lower part of it are gorgeous and you photographed them so perfectly (sharpness, exposure, colors)! The whole composition in the vertical format and with the black & white borders is wonderful! The greek islands have certainly become nicer thru your eyes!
TFS - congrats,
eversmile (11636) 2010-10-21 7:45
Majestic, this composition, that allies a graphical interest and a beautiful landscape! The pure lines, the sobriety of the colors, the intensity of the contrasts, create an enchanting postcard.
Muse (34962) 2010-10-21 8:14
J'ai photographié cet endroit aussi:-)
Une très jolie photo et de superbes couleurs.
Tout bon cadrage
bmukherjee (1516) 2010-10-21 9:13
This is sheer genius! Well, partly your photography, and partly the incredible architecture. Really - the patterns of lines extending at odd angles into the dark blue sea makes this both attractive as a photograph and as a destination. Above all, it's a very good POV - would it be incorrect to assume that you were standing on one of those whitewashed walls to take the photograph?
cornejo (43859) 2010-10-21 10:03
Greeting Brian, very very pretty photo, good shot and good work, congratulation.
HimalAnda (10669) 2010-10-21 10:07

Another wonderful composition with excellent light management and very good contrast, lovely colors, very nice POV.
Have a nice evening, Vasilis.
saxo042 (37900) 2010-10-21 12:19
A fantastic geometrical pattern with superb colours. The very strong blue sea against the clear white building and some very eye-catching details with deviating colours, make this a very pleasant photo.

How crystal clear image! Luminous impression of white is really amazing. Colour of the pot gives a nice accent to the image.
Best wishes, Hisashi

Another beautiful photo from Santorini! You are very prolific in your creativity! I am slightly envious. There is nothing like this in Thailand....but we do have the temples and many of them. But nothing as aesthetically pleasing as this. Of course your expert eye has made it so. Fine work, as always, warm regards,

Longroute (19396) 2010-10-22 3:37
I've photographed the same scene (with an awful cheap camera long ago...) but this interpretation has no comparison.
Fabulous contrast of colours and light and a very wise composition. It conveys the unique atmosphere of Santorini.
maria-v1981 (10932) 2010-10-22 11:25
Excellent composition this photo is just amazing.
Bartleby (13552) 2010-10-22 14:35
I've been lingering a bit in your gallery and I'm impressed by the quality of your compositions. This one is no exception: a very interesting play of lines with a flawless exposure. Top notch!

Kalimera :-) Brian,
love your Santorini collection!
The colours and composition are very well managed and you brought me back in time, more than 20 years ago... still have a coffee and breath the pure bright air...
tober (8797) 2010-10-25 1:27
Hello Brian, the graphism is at its best in this photo. Especially at the foreground. I also liked the orange coloured amphora which makes your beautiful composition more attractive. Congratulations, Tolga

Interesting purity of line and color. Beautiful composition.
Ninello52 (7576) 2010-11-29 10:31
Questa è un'immagine sensazionale! Bellissimo il bianco delle case su quel blu fantastico del mare! Bella anche la grafica della scale. Incredibile l'assenza totale di foschia che apre il paesaggio in tutti i dettagli sino all'orizzonte!
lilito (3534) 2010-12-03 1:07

composition, sharpness and saturation at the highest levels.
The landscape is extraordinary.

Hi Brian. First, my compliments for your masterful gallery. The photos show an excellent technical and artistic quality. The Photo "Parallel Lines" is absolutely excellent. Composition, light and colors are stunning beauty. Top! Rgds, Wolfgang.

What can i say about this photo? Everything is perfect! Many features to dyscover, perfect balanced composition and the exposure exquisite. I think i could stay a all day enjoying this vieuw.
Waylim (25502) 2011-01-22 21:40
It is easy to see and understand why this should be one of your featured photo. Great POV of this picture perfectly place, it's got all the elements to make a perfect post card like picture and composition. Started with the steps that leads us down into the scenery and deep blue see below. the classic feature of greek architecture of white wall and blue sea give great contrast and the warm brick red ceramic, the only major warm colors served as a great anchor point for our vision. All the strong line and shapes give strong graphical elements. The lens filter work perfectly. Although I like very much the deep blue sea and sky, but I think it is a bit too dark in comparison to the foreground, but than again, it is matter of preferences. It is fantastic shot regardless of the pp preference. Thanks. My complements.
josepmarin (58359) 2011-02-01 11:47
with this photo you have caught Santorini's architectural and chromatic essence, in a very effective framing that offers us a great depth of image and an elegant perspective of the stairs.
The light is fantastic, the beautiful colors are perfectly saturated, and the contrast is strong, giving a great visual power and a great personality to the composition.
It is a superb work. Congrats!
greek (7594) 2011-02-04 0:07
what can i say about you and your fotos! simply amazing, presenting my country so alive and so cosy,congrats,galantis
Matthew-Watt (5934) 2011-02-04 16:33
Another cracker from these attractive islands. This staircase is a superb element to your photo, it adds a great pattern, leading the eye down towards the water beyond. The people who live here have taken a lot of effort to uphold traditional architectural values whereas other places have lost this to overdevelopment.
jafadabret (56501) 2011-02-05 23:50
C'est une des plus belles photos que j'ai vues. J'aime le graphisme des escaliers, les perspectives et les couleurs en opposition au blanc éclatant.
serp2000 (44684) 2011-02-08 10:44
I like your series of the photos from Greece.
Good captures, I love this saturation, excellent graphism, fine crop.
Schnappilic (9692) 2011-02-14 11:03
This is a masterpiece!! Nothing that could be better!
colinbrenchley (6431) 2011-02-26 2:12
Been there and photographed these steps myself. A photographer must live in this house. Your rendition of colours captured in this shot excells. Superb image.
fotoguy22 (4794) 2011-03-04 12:12
What I like about this photo, along with a lot of other things, is the light brown clay pot which throws a splash of color other than black, white and blue into the image. The stairways of course leading the eye through the photo is pleasing as well.

alabate (1197) 2011-03-11 13:55
C'est à peine imaginable une telle beauté. Ta photo est absolument exceptionnelle par sa pureté des lignes et par la sérénité qui s'en dégage.
La mer et sa couleur sont époustouflant, je suis très touché par ces tonalités de bleus et ce contraste incroyable avec ces murs de chaux impeccable.
Le pot en terre est le point central de l'image autour duquel l'oeil descend par l'escalier jusqu'à la mer.
Si je ferais juste une remarque, plus un léger regret, devant tant de perfection, c'est que le navire ne soit pas entier dans le cadrage, mais c'est tellement mineur.
Un grand bravo pour partager tant de beauté.
Robert1969 (7160) 2011-04-13 0:21
Very nice position (and composition), because both the depth as the height is nice to read in this picture.
Also the light is very good: that creates a lots of details in the picture and creates also the beautiful
gmg (4202) 2011-05-02 8:56
Great colours, nice composition and beautiful landscape: what else does a nice shot need?
francio64 (39888) 2011-05-04 4:13
una bella compo verticale con eccellente contrasto cromatico tra il blu e il bianco.
Ottimo taglio verticale con un bel grafismo dato dalla scalinata.
Sharp eccellente come sempre.
Well done and TFS!
zanskar (280) 2011-05-05 4:48
les couleurs de toutes vos photos sont incroyables ! celle-ci ne déroge pas à la règle, parfaitement saturée, beau jeu de lignes verticales et horizontales, parfait cadrage. Une merveille !
delpeoples (58804) 2011-05-14 19:18
Wow, you even make a TV antenna look good! Now that's an art. It seems like you;ve even placed the orange pot in the scene it looks so perfect (although I know you haven't). I love the effect of the vertical and horizontal lines on the stairs, they naturally lead the eye down to the sea. Everything is so cris, the image is immaculate with colours so perfect it hurts. Thanks for sharing, what a great shot, you thoroughly deserve every one of those 113 points - and more - the half-green smiley baffles me!
livermore (1631) 2011-06-04 3:18
Ta galerie est superbe, j'aime ton travail.
Cette photo est particulièrement réussie, contraste du bleu et du blanc, graphisme, perspective, qualité du cadrage, le tout sur un cliché de très belle qualité.
UlfE (14641) 2011-06-20 11:48
