There are a lot of changes to take good photos in Mykonos.I was near the sea when suddenly i saw a young woman wearing this reddish dress,to ascending the stairs creating a great contrast with the whitewashed stairs and walls.So my compact camera shot the snapshot and here is the result.
I hope you like it.

Une belle montée des marches avec la jeune femme à la robe rouge qui ajoute de la couleur et du mouvement.
pajaran (53320) 2013-09-15 23:25
Lep pogled na stepenice i devojku i crvenoj haljini ...
Dobar trenutak snimka, kontrast i perspektiva, lepe boje.
Dobar rad, lepo pokazano mesto i trenutak.
Imajte lep i uspesan dan, sve najbolje u novoj nedelji koja je pocela.
Nice view of the stairs and the girl and the red dress ...
A good time recording, contrast and perspective, beautiful colors.
Good work, nice place and time indicated.
A beautiful moment.
Have a great and successful day, all the best in the new week that started.

bello scatto, il vestito della ragazza sembra riprendere i colori dei fiori, in un clima tipicamente greco.
Bella composizione e ottimo taglio.
krzychu30 (15510) 2013-09-15 23:52
lovely scene that has its own,unique mood.Lonely woman ascending the stairs-nice subject.
I like here your upward perspective and also so vivid and nicely contrasting colors,which make the whole scene so eye-catching.
Have a nice day
papagolf21 (87410) 2013-09-15 23:58
Bonjour, cher Danos,
Excellente prise de vue. Le personnage donne une tache de couleur du plus bel effet.
J'adore ce genre de prise de vue.
Très bonne journée.

A great combination - red dress on the white stairs. Good light management of the shadows.

Υπέροχη σκηνή με συνδιασμένα τα λευκά με τα χρώματα.το πλαίσιο, τις σκιές και την όλο ατμόσφαιρα. Μια Μυκονιάτικη καλοκαιρινή γωνιά που ανεβάζει την διάθεση

I like frame and colors.
Woman add savor of photo.
Have a nice day
ikeharel (59569) 2013-09-16 0:41
Always an attractive sight, Danos, every lady wearing red.
Good contrast to the white stairs and fence, well positioned on pic. space, and her movement upwards.
Well collected the moment.
Romano46 (18466) 2013-09-16 1:37
Una bella idea quella di inserire la donna con l'abito rosso in quella che altrimenti sarebbe riosultata una foto povera di contenuti.
Oltretutto il rosso dell'abito si contrappone ottimamente al rosso dei fiori dell'oleandro che si intravede sulla destra.
Una foto tutta basdata sulla composizione e sul contrasto dei colori con un risultato eccellente.
Ottima la luminosità ed eccellente la definizione.
Ciao e buon inizio di settimana
subhendu_bagchi (25913) 2013-09-16 2:33
again the blue-white magic of Greece here. This time with a contrasting red as a dress of a lady ascending stairs. Great composition. Excellent image quality. Tfs.
amaryllis (35277) 2013-09-16 3:59
Belle composition de cet escalier et de cette femme montant les marches, un beau jeu d'ombre et de lumière, de belles couleurs
jacquest (18831) 2013-09-16 4:31
I hope I could follow this lady to heaven. A very nice and candid shot with the red dress making a sharp contrast against the white. The movement of the feet has been well caught. The framing with the red flowers also adds to the composition.
Miguel82 (25015) 2013-09-16 6:16
Buna zuia Danos,
What a lovely scene, you found a charming beauty to add some presence and attraction to your composition
the pink color of her dress matches well with the laurel flowers, nice architecture, I like the part of shadow in your photo
Multumesc, la revedere

You have a good eye for elegance, my friend, and this casual portrait "stolen" in historic environment is of lively interest!
saxo042 (37594) 2013-09-16 8:32
A very fine capture! You have also realised that an inclusion of people always add interest to a picture and that some red colour also add an eye-catching accent. This is also a well composed picture with those parallel lines of the stairs and the way this stair curves upwards.
mcmtanyel (14565) 2013-09-16 9:25
What can I say? Red and white look beautiful to my eyes. I think this photo belongs in a fashion magazine, it's very elegant.
abmdsudi (44792) 2013-09-16 9:53
A low position gives an interesting perspective pushing depth of field to the limit in the setting and the speck of stunning red triggers the eyes in. This is an eye catching shot timely taken nicely, Congrats.
kato (11630) 2013-09-16 10:47
You're capturing well this scene by a good angle and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the spectacle whitch a woman wearing the reddish dress is ascending the white stairs slowly. In here, it's beautiful color contrast between white, red and blue. And, the tree's shadow projected to the stairs draws out an additional good atmosphere in this image.
Noel_Byrne (25730) 2013-09-16 10:49
This iS a great capture, the girls red dress does stand out beautifully against the stairs and is a great compliment to the red flowers on the right hand side. As the girl ascends the stairs, it also gives a brilliant sense of depth to the scene, especially with how you have composed the stairs in the shot. And that blue sky, how I envy that deep blue sky :)
All the best
ourania (33493) 2013-09-16 11:04
μια καθημερινή σκηνή γεμάτη χάρη, μια απλή και πολύ ευχάριστη καλοκαιρινή εικόνα. Πολύ ωραίος ο τρόπος που χρησιμποποίησες τη σκάλα για να γεμίσεις το κάθετο κάδρο με τις γραμμές και τις υφές της κυκλαδίτικης αρχιτεκτονικής. Επίσης πρόσφερες στη μυστηριώδη κοπέλα με το όμορφο κόκκινο φόρεμα ένα ιδανικό φόντο. Μου αρέσει πάρα πολύ το φως και τα φυσικά χρώματα, ο συνδυασμός τους είναι απλός αλλά υπέροχος. Τιθάσευσες τη λάμψη του λευκού με μεγάλη επιδεξιότητα. Συγχαρητήρια και ευχαριστώ!
Να είσαι καλά, καλή εβδομάδα,
mohammad_H (9548) 2013-09-16 11:10
The concept of this picture, beautiful color coordinated outfits and flowers against the white building and the environment, eye catching and spectacular, unmatched clarity and good quality, good job
Best wishes to you
Silvio1953 (125647) 2013-09-16 11:57
Ciao Danos, lovely composition with nice walking womanm, splendid light, wonderful colors and excellent clarity, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio
UlfE (14641) 2013-09-16 11:59
A wonderful photo taken with excellent time. The lady in red could not be better positioned and your captured her perfectly when she is taking a step. The red dress does of course make her even more eye-catching against the bright stairs. TFS and have a fine week!
elenimavrandoni (14207) 2013-09-16 15:45
Δάνο, μα που τα πετυχαίνεις πιά...και το φόρεμα της ταιριάζει απόλυτα με την πικροδάφνη...μια πολύ ομορφη καλοκαιρινή, ανάλαφρη σύνθεση, απόλυτα ισσοροπημένη σε χρώμα αλλά και σε παραδοσιακό ύφος!!
Η Ελλάδα είναι πανέμορφη όπως και νάχει κι εσυ είσαι μοναδικός στο να δείχνεις τίς ομορφιές της..
καλή σου νύχτα
gervaso (10833) 2013-09-16 15:58
The contrast of her clothes with her surrounding is really great, and you got it with very good perspective from this low POV! Wonderful composition! Very good job!
PiotrF (10082) 2013-09-16 16:05
Nice moment. Excellent composition, colour and presentation be superb.
Nice vertical frame. Very good captured in this image, with good sharpness, depth and light. Beautiful and interesting job perfectly done.
pierrefonds (58311) 2013-09-17 4:26
The presence of the woman is giving life to the scene. The length of the staircase is giving depth to the composition. The good luminosity is enhancing the beauty of the colours. Have a nice day.
Kugart (1778) 2013-09-17 6:09
Great composition and as you said in your notes a great contrast between the white steps and the lady walking up the stairs in the red coat. The overhanging trees with their red blossoms set against the blue sky is a great addition.
ChrisJ (100768) 2013-09-17 10:58
The attractive lady in red contrasts well against the blue sky. A superb upward pov from the bottom of the staits looking up. The highlights have been well exposed with no oe. Good sharpness and framing. The oleander tree is a symbol of the Mediterranean. Tfs!
gildasjan (41810) 2013-09-17 11:00
Notre regard est forcément attiré par la démarche de cette femme.Sa robe rouge rappelle la couleur de ces fleurs sur la droite.
C'est bien vu.
nikkitta (15334) 2013-09-17 16:02
First , no need to comment my photos, is a pleasure for me to watch and comment yours
This is a perfect example of quick and good composition
Red dress and red flowers and the stair
Well done, nice contrasts
Congrats and all the best
zoomer (6) 2013-09-17 16:19
Hi Danos,excellent composition and vivid colors.Superb handling of the whites with all textures showing.Friendly regards Wolf.
jcpix (13716) 2013-09-17 20:32
As we can all attest, the color red will immediately draw ones attention...especially if that from the female persuasion! :) As you stated, the opportunity presented itself, and you took full advantage to capture the passing moment in a splendid manner. The red dress is the perfect compliment to the roses, and as mentioned in your note, a superb color contrast against the white staircase. Good recognition of your surroundings, smart thinking and quick reaction to capture this daily life type of moment. Beautiful. Have a great day ahead.
claudeD (33982) 2013-09-18 2:12
blue and white picture very well composed. I like the "red" woman creating a special effect here with this fresh red color ... Very well done.TFS.
With regards from Luxembourg
mjw364 (7512) 2013-09-18 2:20
Your note tell us of your photographic instincts. Well composed and great idea - the lady in red does provide a great contrast against the white. Good inclusion of the tree as a frame and great upward POV with the steps leading us up with the lady.
Royaldevon (31293) 2013-09-18 2:55
A great setting and a fine model, especially dressed in red! The curve of the wall and the ascending steps make most effective guides to this attractive girl. The light and the colours are equally fine.
Have a great day,
jhm (141273) 2013-09-18 3:28
You're capturing well this scene by a good angle and excellent tone and clarity.
The lady upwards of the stair is a nice addition.
Excellent depth and perspective.
This everything in nice colours and excellent sharpness.
Very well done, TFS.
marina7 (8055) 2013-09-18 5:46
she couldn't have chosen a better dress for this photo shoot, could she?:) It goes perfectly with the flowers and sure makes the scene.
Beautiful composition in true Greek style that I enjoy a lot.
Thanks and best wishes
eldancer1 (29463) 2013-09-18 7:48
Simple but effective composition and I like the inclusion of the woman for human element. Good pov and dof with nice details. Well done, tfs.
adramad (39150) 2013-09-18 8:02
Magnificent this composition vertically, giving us a nice view of the staircase, wonderful color contrast with the dominant whites, the girl is a good complement and red dress, the color of the flowers of the shrub, provides a nice chromaticism.
Well managed both light and sharpness.
Have a good evening.
mirosu (15064) 2013-09-18 20:37
You have captured this lady from excellent low angle viewpoint. I like the superb color contrast, red against white. The all is very well framed in portrait format. Well done.
mkamionka (31265) 2013-09-19 7:12
I have the same compact camera it makes great photos. And this one is a good example. Well spotted contrast of the colorful woman against the whitewashed surounding. Very interesting, well done!
bayno (18342) 2013-09-19 10:02
good framing for this star in the stairs...good details too, the red dress is for sure a strong focal point...
jemaflor (86608) 2013-09-19 12:43
Nice view and composition with the lady, flowers and colors contrast, well managed, tfs.
geoant68 (331) 2013-09-19 21:28
πολύ όμορφη στιγμιότυπο,με την κοπέλα με τα κόκκινα ν΄ανεβαίνει τα σκαλιά δίνοντας βάθος και προοπτική.Τέλεια διαχείρηση του φωτός και της κίνησης,τέλεια παρουσίαση,
fabbs99 (16783) 2013-09-19 22:42
What a great color contrast of the white background of the stairs and the lady's dress.The presence of flowers does enhance the beauty of the frame.Very well done.TFS.
boa (6153) 2013-09-20 12:25
i agree, Mykonos is a photographers dream! It is a pity that i only have a few(and lousy) shots from my visit here for many years ago. I like this shot a lot. Excellent composition and the young womans red dress in combination with the red flowers stands out very good towards the white stairs. The shadows from the flowers also lifts the scene, well done!
Have a nice weekend.
gus72 (3719) 2013-09-20 23:19
Hi Danos !!
you must have very quick reactions to get your camera ready and end up with such a prefect composition.....
she is NOT in the shaded section.... so the dress looks extra nice.
good work ..... it pays to be alert
Have a nice week end.
goodwill (4224) 2013-09-21 13:21
With this critique, the points tally for this shot rises from 98 to 100.
Her positioning and the red dress immediately catches the eyes........a good contrast.
dip (23640) 2013-09-24 1:31
ο γαλανός ουρανός,η πικροδάφνη και η ασπρισμένη σκάλα είναι στοιχεία που δείχνουν την ομορφιά των Κυκλάδων,
η κοπέλα με το κόκκινο φόρεμα συμπληρώνει και ομορφαίνει τη σύνθεση,
COSTANTINO (57275) 2013-09-25 12:15
Γεια σου Δανο
Πολυ ομορφη φοτο απο την γραφικη Μυκονο

Waylim (25368) 2013-09-26 10:29
Very nice shot, good POV that makes it feels like we are on the stair following the beautiful girl up the stair, I love how her dress in red matches the flower perfectly.
aliabazari (15997) 2013-09-26 16:39
Hello dear friend
A beautiful view of the display. Exposure and colors are very well done.
NorthernLight (2315) 2013-09-29 14:00
great, harmonious colors and a successful play of light and shadow. And an intresting unknown beauty, you like to follow.
A beautifully captured image!
Have a nice week
Cricri (108693) 2013-09-29 22:54
Très jolie cette image, le rouge de la robe de la dame qui ce copie aux fleurs, juste bien placée a coté, montant tranquillement les escaliers blancs, beau jeu ombre et un ciel bleu qui s'ajoute aux contraste des couleurs
delpeoples (53659) 2013-10-03 22:12
Kalispera dear Danos
Thanks for the welcome back, I loved my European trip, and am glad to be home.
This is a very attractive photo. I like the contrast of the girl's pink dress and the white stairs. The pink flowers on the right provide another point of interest. Excellent warm light and choice of the vertical frame. Very attractive work, thanks for sharing.
jmdias (57029) 2013-10-04 15:57
excellent use of the girl, her pink dress matched well with the flowers and the scenery is perfect too. excellent job, a compo beautiful and well done.
maloutim (9637) 2013-10-14 23:22
What a lovely composition with the typical white stairs and the elagant girl with her red dress contrasting so well with the background colors and matching the flowers on the right. Great capture which you rightly placed in "decisive moment" !
Vasa (16778) 2013-10-26 17:00
It is like your long way on Trekearth - successful and emotional. All compliments Danos for sharing your event. Long life to Greece!
bona (13117) 2014-01-22 11:23
your photo have sensuality. I like the woman in red dress walking up the stairs. The partial shadow gave a nice balance to the photo.
serp2000 (40990) 2014-02-02 3:02
Hello, dear Danos,
Very clever composition, first of all, I like this contrast of her red dress with the white stairs. And the flowers on the tree are good support for her dress. It looks like a special scene. Perfectly captured!
fanni (14381) 2014-03-26 13:03
I like this game of bright light and shadows. The "lady in red" creates an excellent balance in the composition and is a real eye-catcher, standing our clearly agsinst the brightly sunlit white staircase (the colour of her dress matching perfectly the colours of the flowers on the right) :-)
my best wishes,
rmajum (1151) 2014-11-16 8:21
Wonderful composition made with this impromptu shot with your compact. You have nicely complemented the color of the dress and that of the flowers. The white stairs lead us to the top of the frame. Compliments..
