At the end of the beach of Alinda, there's a makeshift harbour for little fishing boats belonging to passionate amateur fishermen. In the distance we see Ayia Marina along the coast, Platanos where the two hills meet, Ayia Paraskevi uphill on the left, Patelo climbing up the hill on the right.
The little dark triangle at the lower left corner of the frame is the road continuing to the beaches of Panayies and Dio Liskaria.
Thank you for visiting, a lovely Sunday and week to all

Attractive small golf scene. I like the lines of the hills going into the village. Well taken scene.

quello che mi stupisce in te è la tua capacità, pur vivendo in un'isola dagli spazi non molto grande di trovare sempre nuovi stimoli per cercare nuove inquadrature evitando però le banalità.
Ed ancora una volta hai fatto centro con questa bella immagine che ci regala una Leros che si prepara all'avvicinarsi dell'autunno e ad una vita lontana dal turismo.
Una composizione molto ben fatta nella quale tutto si distende con molto equilibrio e aiuta a riflettere sul passare delle stagioni ed il mutare del tempo.
Ciao e buona domenica

A pleasant agreeably lit composition. I like the point of view, using the line of little boats to guide the viewer toward the town across the bay. The image has good colours and sharpness. I wish you a pleasant Sunday.

Merveilleuse vue sur ce port de toute beauté un très très bel éclairage et la passerelle de bois et le maisons blanche en fond et ce bleu grandiose.
Bravo et amitié

another magnificent composition from Leros,this time showing fishing character of it.The scene has so much unique charm and beauty and you were able to convey these features perfectly in your composition!I like the way you framed the scene and graphical layout of the image(colors and contrast between them are really delightful!I think also so soft,warm light has played a huge role here).

The small fg pier adds good lead in lines towards the flotilla of fishing boats scattered around the picturesque harbour. Good sharpness and color saturation with nice blue skylight reflections. I like the v notch shape formed by the bg hills. Tfs!
Noel_Byrne (25220) 2013-09-22 6:09
I love the business of this shot, it looks as if the boats are clambering for the best position in the harbor, and the beautiful buildings in the background look as if they too are all fighting for the best space! I love the scene of the town spread over the hills like this, its always a beautiful and such a traditional sight. Lovely image, thanks as ever for sharing.
All the best

Γεια σου Ουρανία,
μου αρέσουν τα χρώματα και οι λεπτομέρειες,καθώς και το σημείο λήψης που διάλεξες,
όμορφες εικόνες από την Λέρο μοιράζεσαι μαζί μας,να'σαι καλά!
PaulVDV (23007) 2013-09-22 12:02
A very picturesque town built on the place where the overgrown mountainslope at the right and the bare mountain at the left meet each other.
The small jetty and the boats provide an attractive foreground and create a good depth on the picture.
Best regards, Paul

Ciao Ourania, favolosa panoramica sulla splendida Leros, gran bella composizione con le tante barche sul fantastico mare, ottima nitidezza, splendida luce e magnifici colori, bravissima, ciao Silvio

Hello dear Ourania,
Another topclass capture from Leros !
Very nice compo and a sign for the fact that the summer has allready ended.

All the best and have a good start of a new week! TAKERO

I like the line of boats leading the eye to the middle of the harbor and the variety of colors they present.
Do you shoot RAW or JPEG?
thebest (4276) 2013-09-22 21:24
I do love images of boats & harbours... & this is a lovely view of the little coloured boats with the village in the background - love it... It looks so peaceful & relaxing I certainly could see myself there finding a sunny spot to sit back & take in the vista.
gojo (1769) 2013-09-23 3:23
This looks like a difficult view to capture well, wihch You of course have done. Every boat in the FG is worth looking at, the mountains... and then the little clout to top it off!
PS no one writes critiques as good as You, thanks for that!
Schnappilic (9690) 2013-09-23 11:57
I'm a fun of such Greek's landscape. I like the atmosphere of this little harbor and the whole framing.
abmdsudi (44196) 2013-09-23 16:44
I like the calm feeling evoked here with the sheltered boats steal the show and interacting so well to dark delicious blue water. Apart from this aspect there is always something attractive to the eyes here, brightly dotted white on the hilly slopes create the striking contrast and depth as a whole - tx to your superb compo and vp- it's nicely oriented in this arrangement and subtlely exposed for a much more balance light with lovely shadows. A fine shot indeed, well done and tx to the brief infor notes. Congrats.

Hello Ourania - An attractive coastal scene taken from a good vantage point which provides the image with a lovely backdrop and context. I especially like the colour palette here, the browns and blues work beautifully together and the white buildings and hulls add in the necessary contrast. Warm regards rosemary

Nice scene across the bay with the FG filled with the colourful boats. I like the way your shots reveal the landscape of your daily life in a different way every day and it creates a fascination within me for the place itself. It makes me want to visit to see for myself.
Kugart (1778) 2013-09-24 1:32
Hi Ourania ,
You bring us another fantastic view from Leros of this little harbour scene. The little boats anchored in the lovely blue sea and the little rickety jetty with some of the planks missing. Nice composition with the two hills sloping down to the middle of the scene with the white houses in the background. Lovely degree of calmness about the place. Superb.
emilbo (22616) 2013-09-24 16:42
Merveilleux port de mer bien capté dans un bel éclairage. La perspective est excellente et belle vue sur la ville derrière. J'aime bien la disposition des bateaux et le beau contraste avec la mer.
Félicitations et toutes mes amitiés,
nikkitta (14992) 2013-09-28 16:12
More boats at the end of a day, captured with a soft light and with not people at view, time to rest, it seems
Well arranged composition, houses at the back, all painted white, sea and colorful boats at the front
As always great sharpness
Interesting to where the road continue, did you go or stay?
Enjoy the Sunday at your beautiful country
Miguel82 (24651) 2013-10-02 2:18

Very nice view of the small fishermen town, this autumn photo brings me back to the summer Greece again. Good exposure, excellent DoF!
All the best wishes,
yquem46 (38746) 2014-01-19 8:55
I found this one in the critiques page
A luminous shot with nice vivid colors
Is it an optical effect or is the image leaning to the left ?
have a nice sunday, best regards

Ουρανία, δεν βαρυέμαι ποτέ να τα κοιτάζω..να θαυμάζω το σχήμα τους και το χρώμα τους και τήν χάρη τους να βρίσκονται μέσα στην γαλάζια θάλασσα..μια σύνθεση που δίνει αξία στήν απλότητα και τήν μοναδικότητα!!
να ειναι η μέρα σου γαλήνια και πολύχρωμη οπως και η φωτογραφία σου!!
