Iconic Greece in this quieter part of the picturesque village of Oia on the volcanic island of Santorini. With the blue and white architecture imitating the colours of the national flag, and looking so pristine in the Aegean sunshine.

Good Morning Brian,
A most effective, vertical arrangement of very Greek images and colours, taking us via the guide lines and the 'steps' from the bottom to the top. I love how the well placed orange top also links, via the rope, to the bell and the cross.
A very sharp exposure that is a treat for the eyes.
Have a great day,

A charming and seductive scene beautifully captured here. Ideally framed to take full advantage of the graphical lines offered by the various elements. Agreeable colour contrasts enhanced by the pleasant ambient light.

a very fine composition with excellent use being made of the graphic blue and white elements.
The windmill is a bonus for me as is the splash of orange.
A most attractive, well handled shot.
All the best Les.

impossibile pensare di essere in un altro luogo che non sia la Grecia, è tutto condensato in questa foto.
Bellissima composizione e colori spettacolari.

What a catch! So many lovely details in one frame, all white and blue, and then the little terracotta piece and the rope to perfect it.

it is a nice one from the white & blue Greece. I like the shades of blues in this image. Great to see the windmill behind it. Another excellent composition with bright colours and excellent sharpness. Tfs.

The blue and red fg structure at right resembles those pylons that boats and ships use at piers to tie the boat securely to the side of the wharf. And here I see that ropes are also attached. I may load a similar shot, also from Oia, later, that duplicates the same striking blue white color contrast also seen here. It was my favourite spot on Santorini! Tfs!

Your images from Greece are sure amazing. You really got the essence of that original piece of the world. Good catch.

Encore une très belle composition verticale de Santorin avec des éléments caractéristiques de l'île très bien placés dans l'image.

Beautiful colours! This kind of building always looks great with blue sky above it. Well spotted.
Very best wishes
mkamionka (36250) 2013-09-27 14:17
what a beautiful composition. I like the elements which you have squeezed in the frame: the windmill, the bell tower, other white-blue fragments. Very creative and very impressive.
Have a great weekend,

Hi, You come back again and again to this picturesque Santaorini village. Like previous ones, this white and blue shot is a marvel.
Have a nice Sunday MAlgo
jemaflor (96705) 2013-10-03 11:31
So beautiful composition, perfectly framed, light and colors are perfect on your photo, tfs.
macjake (67532) 2013-10-04 11:22
well, you nailed it on the head when you said the word pristine - thats what I see here too.
great addition for the photo is that windmill structure in the bg, I think it actually steals the show.
smart control of the lighting as always, very sweet indeed.
enjoy your day
