Maybe not as spectacular as the sunsets in Oia,but also in Fira tourists can enjoy it.
And Fira has one advantage at sunsets-all tourists seem to be in Oia at this time,so your can enjoy this moment in much more peaceful atmosphere:)
It´s HDR from one NEF-file.
I hope you´ll like it!

altro spettacolo grandioso dalle Cicladi!
Alla composizione impeccabile che fa perno non solo sul paesaggio, ma si arricchisce anche di motivi grafici nelle volute della scala e nella terrazza che domini dall'alto, si unisce la dolcezza e il romanticismo di una visione dominata da una luce crepuscolare.
Una splendida foto nella quale soggetto, luce e colori concorrono in egual misura a trasferire emozioni molto intense.
Ciao e buona domenica

hi krzysztof. you found a grand vantage point, and was worth each step you climbed up the hill. beautiful sunset photo with difficult counter light, hdr was very useful to reduce the contrasts and add luminocity to the shadows.

A beautiful sunset pic., at which halved by the closer downhill's houses and church, and than a view stretchs out to sea over the caldera, towards the far horizon under the golden tone.
Manged a nice melancholic ambiance of dusk.
Have a nice Sunday afternoon,

all sunsets in Santorini are a bit special. This beauty is proof of that and taken from this POV all the more enticing and spectacular. Your PP bringing out all the depth of colours and the super textures and detailing. Another stunning image to add your gallery of beauties. Love it! Could do with some of that warmth here today.
Enjoy your Sunday - B.

Good evening and happy start to the week.
Warm greetings from southern Spain.

Witaj Krzysztof ,
Both a splendid plunging view on this beautiful church , and a superb sunset picture with a plesant atmosphere .
PaulVDV (21965) 2013-11-24 3:55
It's a beautiful sunset picture with the dark islands in the golden coloured sea.
Above all, I love your chosen composition and the attractive foreground with the stairs and the church.
The staircase reveals how steeply it goes down from your POV while the ship down there gives us a good sense of scale.
Best regards, Paul

Though there are lots of pictures of Santorini here, your splendid viewpoint makes this one very special, including interesting elements to the scene. The shine on the water and the light in the sky are just amazing, making for a great focal point. The subtle light and the muted colours have helped create a fantastic mood and atmosphere and make this composition very beautiful.
delpeoples (53001) 2013-11-24 4:05
Ahhhhh so beautiful! This is a breath-taking photo which really has everything. Excellent perspective and slight bokeh from the wide angle, wonderful powedery blue colours and above all magnificent light. The architecture and sea of course are magnificent too. Congratulations, I hope this is hanging on your wall at home.
ourania (30227) 2013-11-24 5:31
a wonderful composition with the downward perspective superbly adjusted to the vertical frame. I love the way the view extends from the stairs and the terrace to the elegant church, the seascape and the open sea. An original idea to show the sunset through the effect of the light on the sea and townscape and with only a little glimpse at the sky. There's a marvellous atmosphere and sense of harmony, the viewer feels wrapped by the warm light and colours and the feeling is wonderful. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great Sunday,
lousat (75622) 2013-11-24 5:44
Not the best perspective to who suffer of vertigos like me....ehbeheh...but really beautiful the view,great choice of the moment and magic spectacle,every corner of this Island is a great opportunity,i like it! Have a nice evening and thanks,luciano
abmdsudi (42690) 2013-11-24 6:17
Wonderful view to make picture and to be there in the evening is a great fun from this popular spot. I like the overall colour & exposure with the shimmering water indeed looks like made of gold in this light which adds so much as main interest. And of course the architecture of this area is just wonderful as strong foreground element that leads smoothly into the main show. Finely composed with all those elements well put together to represent what is on your mind and vision. Lovely challenging shot, Congrats

Witaj Krzystof, Oh! co za cudowne miejsce a to zdjecie powala na kolana mozna tak siedziec i podziwiac ten cudowny zachod slonca. Ten POV ktory obrales jest wprost perfefcyjny. Ja wybieram ten lezak po prawej i nie wsaje az do wschodu slonca. Cudowna praca. Moje gratulacje. Bardzo, bardzo mi sie podoba. SUPER!!!
Serdecznie pozdrwaiam i zycze milej niedzieli,
SnapRJW (30911) 2013-11-24 6:59
Hello Krzysztof, A superb shot taken from a lofty viewpoint. Your composition accentuates the steepness of the village making it seem as if you were on top of the world looking down on all that lies beneath. Impressive light management and colours that convey the mood of the moment. Warm regards Rosemary
eldancer1 (27229) 2013-11-24 7:39
Wow! Love the pov and the warm golden colors of the ocean. Awesome capture of this sunset with good lighting and nice details. Well done, tfs.
Noel_Byrne (23326) 2013-11-24 8:59
I can always guarantee a smile when I visit your gallery, what a shot this is. The stairs creates such a beautiful effect of depth, that I want to climb inside, lie on one of those recliners and watch the beauty of this sunset. Spectacular scene from a most unusual point of view. I'm amazing that you managed to fir in everything from the perfectly positioned handrail and stairs, right across the horizon and the beautiful sun. There is so much to see here, and under really glorious light.
Thanks as always, have a great week
marina7 (8053) 2013-11-24 9:33
I have a feeling I've seen this photo a million times already but never with that striking gold spilled from the sky on the sea surface:) Looks really amazing, and the perspective is fabulous of course!
parvatibb (1387) 2013-11-24 11:34
I would definitely called this a spectacular sunset!
wishing to be on those bench and enjoying this view...
Gorgeous colors and great POV!
jcpix (13574) 2013-11-24 11:53
I hate to consider this as a typical scene from the islands, but how in the world could anyone not enjoy it? Wow! I never tire of these, and when they're taken and presented in such a manner...well, all I can say is that I hope too see many, many more!
I simply can't get enough of the colors here, the orange/blue foreground against the natural, rustic church leading back into the softer orange & blue combo is just superb. I'm absolutely taken in by the lines of the staircase walls and the crescent shapes just beyond. What a sense of height and perspective also, brilliant arrangement from top to bottom. The dimension is really something else, and once again the subtle HDR brings out smooth precision.
I can't imagine a bad shot taken from here, everything you've shown us so far has been outstanding. Compliments all around my friend! Hope you've had a nice weekend.
My best wishes,
macjake (55614) 2013-11-24 12:21
I need some education about these Greek Islands! :)
first of all, is Santorini on the Island of Fira?
and what is this Oia? and why do the tourists go there in the evening leaving this place vacant?
so many things i need to know :)
I'll be traveling to Greece in May 2014 :)
lovely shot once again my friend.
the textures and exposure are very attractive. Its great how the paint seems to be peeling away a bit on the dome.
another sweet shot
thebest (4276) 2013-11-24 15:02
'' LOVE IT ''
Excellent POV & COMPOSITION - Well done just great.!!!
adidas5nb (5241) 2013-11-24 17:56

mirosu (13340) 2013-11-25 5:39
Excellent combination of nature effect with beautiful old architecture. The sunlight reflections are superb. The church is in very good low light, your high angle viewpoint is perfect. Excellent photo, well done.

s_lush (16134) 2013-11-25 11:53
What a beautiful combination of architectural and natural features, colors and forms. Excellent choice of point of view, composition and moment of capturing. Masterful presentation of this picturesque place!
mesutilgim (83056) 2013-11-25 13:41
Top capture from Fira. A photographic work like a good poem !
TFS and best regards
Mics (687) 2013-11-25 18:42
Wow! Thank you for a sharing a piece of your "sea of gold". This photo exude a very lovely and cozy ambiance.
P.S. I am actually there in the yacht having my"chill out" time...in my dreams...:-)
adramad (37377) 2013-11-26 5:03
Delicious composition with these wonderful shades of sunset, I like the perspective with stairs leading down to the church, which offers a nice set of volumes. The wake at sea and gold is gorgeous.
Both the brightness and sharpness are perfect.
Have a good evening and week.
All the best.
Cricri (105369) 2013-11-26 10:45
Une belle recherche dans le cadrage, le moment choisi, beaucoup de détails et de couleurs, avec une excellente profondeur de la mer, très belle réalisation
ChrisJ (96704) 2013-11-27 4:20
Fira has another advantage! You can see the new volcano rising out of the caldera from here but not from Oia. But the churches in Oia are freshly painted blue and white. Here I like the very steep descent and yellow vs blue colour contrast. Good sharpness and a wonderful sunset. Tfs!
Silvio1953 (120686) 2013-11-27 6:19
Ciao Krzysztof, great POV for a fascinating sunset, wonderful warm colors and splendid light, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio
mcmtanyel (12491) 2013-11-27 16:37
This is a very pleasant view taken with skillful technique. I like the color combination of peach and dark blue on the stairs and the terrace.
Graal (96823) 2013-11-29 23:42
pieknie to wyglada, fota jak na dobra pocztowke. Dobry czas wybrales na to niskie slonce. Pozazdroscic wyprawy na greckie wyspy.
fabbs99 (16163) 2013-12-02 20:55
I love to see the golden lights from across the sea as the sets for the day.A nice and interesting picture with good sharpness, depth, beautiful light and color. TFS.
Hansaphotos (6659) 2013-12-06 13:53
Oh, for sure a beautiful shot, Krzysztof. Love the combination of blue and yellow in the foreground. A well composed picture and a great seascape. Lovely light, very well managed. Beautiful! Thanks.
Have a nice weekend.
danos (85797) 2013-12-07 8:46
nice the view as the presentation of one of the famous sunsets over Santorini.I like the created relection as the beauty and the charmy of the place.
COSTANTINO (54516) 2013-12-07 13:39

adores (36219) 2013-12-07 15:53
Another great shot from Greece! It is a beautiful sunset and you got a very good photo. The format was well chosen and I like this foreground with the graphism of the stairs, the dome and those two empty chairs that seem to be a perfect place to enjoy the moment!
josepmarin (57711) 2013-12-09 3:22
a breathtaking view on the architecture of Fira, and on the caldera, because of a perfect high-angle shot.
The golden shines on the sea create a calm atmosphere, and the image is very rich graphically, under the subtle and soft sunset light.
The HDR treatment don't give a strong effect in the photo, and this fact is remarkable.
subhendu_bagchi (25599) 2013-12-09 22:34
wow, I missed it somehow. An excellent shot. Great capture from high POV. Superb light management, magical atmosphere. Enjoyed it a lot. Tfs.
Kamilutka (8095) 2013-12-29 1:13
swietne ujecie i niezwykla perspektywa - efekt jest zdecydowanie bardzo ciekawy. Podoba mi sie swiatlo zachodzacego slonca, ktore oblewa delikatnym zlotem morze i budynki. Piekna praca - moje gratulacje!
kasianowak (5964) 2014-01-20 3:56
Bardzo ladne sa te twoje obrazki z Santorini. Umiejetnie uchwycone swiatlo tworzy niepowtarzalna atmosfere oraz tonacje tak rozna od stereotypowej bialo-niebieskiej, jaka zwykle kojarzymy z tym miejscem. Swietna kompozycja z wyrazistym pierwszym planem.
npecanhuk (64320) 2014-01-24 15:59
Very beautiful and pleasant-looking picture!
