At the edge of the wharf of Ayia Marina. The people are waiting for the boat Anna Express due to arrive in a few minutes from Lipsos.
I wish to express my sincere thanks to all the TE friends for the joy and help they've given me with their photos and comments. TE is has been my school and playground for two years now and I appreciate very much all the things I learned here on photography, people, habits, languages...
There are so many special thanks I'd like to say to friends who have been close to me through these two years. I hope we'll keep on sharing the TE experience for a long time.
Thank you for visiting

complimenti per questo primo risultato, ne seguiranno molto altri, conditi di altrettante bellissime foto.
Tra non molto anche io arriverò allo stesso traguardo in compagnia tua e di tanti altri membri che ci hanno sostenuto e consigliato.
Bello scatto, sembrano in attesa di partire, ma il mare sembra un ostacolo, un po' come quando stai per scattare una foto e ci sono elementi che ostacolano quello che vorresti fare, speriamo che passi una zattera a salvare loro e i nostri scatti.

Congratulations for your two years on TE! You have achieved far more in your two years than I have in over seven years here and all of your photographs have been a real delight to look at and enjoy.
This is such a simple composition and yet both a restful and delightful photograph, the two figures standing at the end of the pier in anticipation of their boat arriving while admiring the smooth calm water and the lovely soft morning light.
Lovely light and colours, perfect exposure and exquisite details and sharpness.
I wish you many more years on this site and look forward to seeing many more of your wonderful photographs!

my Best Congratulations to Your anniversary!
Your choice of the picture for this occasion is perfect!
Figurative and having its own,unique mood composition.
The simplicity of the scene is also its greatest advantage-no distractions,just the couple and tranquility!
That´s exactly something in my taste.
Wish You a nice day

Hello Ourania - I really appreciate your heartfelt note; congratulations on your anniversary and thanks for your dedication and participation. I always enjoy your critiques, they are always insightful and helpful.
As to this shot. Two figures, two years and beautifully simple. I admire your subtle composition here which portrays such a calm atmosphere through the use of greys, water and reflections. The colours add just the right punctuation. Lovely work. Warm regards Rosemary

Glad that we met on the site, love your attitude and your true TE mission through pictures.
Fine picture with the smooth sea-surface, and the couple looking down to water - something attracted their view.
Lovely, and my best reagrds.

ChrisJ (105551) 2013-11-27 3:11
Congratulations on your 2 years with TE. Hoping to see you still around in another 2 years time! I might have cropped a little tighter on the 2 people at the pier just below the reflection and removed the left half. Might try a quick workshop rather than try to explain in words. Anyway A great minimalist image with good sharpness and lots of mood. Tfs!
snunney (90798) 2013-11-27 4:31
First of all, congratulations on two years here on TE. A good way to celebrate with this excellent minimalist composition. The calm and peaceful atmosphere is very evident as this couple wait for the ferry to carry them home.
Noel_Byrne (27752) 2013-11-27 4:45
Happy 2 year birthday! I cant buy you a cake, but I hope somebody does. A nice cake and coffee by the marina, what could be better,
It has been a pleasure to share your gallery over the past two years, (i'm here two years in November too!!) and its always been a pleasure to read your notes. As you say, long may it continue!
Great image to celebrate, two people to celebrate two years, and a reflection to show it will continue onwards.
Thanks as always

Mes plus sincères félicitations pour tes deux ans sur TE.Un bel accomplissement avec des photographies de qualité avec des thèmes très variés.Comme ici.
holmertz (45936) 2013-11-27 7:08
Congratulations, and thank you for showing us so many fine photos during these two years. This one is another perfect example of your talent for superbly simple compositions of great beauty. From whichever side you watch it it's perfectly balanced, it has a pleasantly narrow range of colours with two small bright spots, fine reflections and a good atmosphere.
I'm looking forward to seeing your new photos in the coming year.
saxo042 (37724) 2013-11-27 8:28
Congratulations to two years on TE! A very fine picture with this vast and empty sea in front of the persons waiting on the quay. They look really deserted here, no boat in sight yet... A good capture!

A nice symbolic shot & congrats on your 2nd year. Minimalist eye pulling composition pic for its strong color contrast with attractive outlining profile as strong elements. Great shot. Well done

Congratulations for your two year TE, a lot people are after two month already forget these site.

I've everyday with a lot attention looked toward your pictures, with a lot pleasure.
I know pictures are sometimes subjective , the one better than the other, as usual in photography.
But we learn everyday of each other, this is it most beautiful of these site.
I hope that we still a lot pictures get, I wish you a very nice career here on TE.
Very well done, TFS.
jcpix (13820) 2013-11-28 3:39
So, two people for two years, seems quite fitting. :) Congratulations! You've certainly accomplished quite a bit already, and I hope it continues on for a long time to come. Your notes are always so well written and insightful, and I think it goes without saying that your contribution to TE is one that we can all appreciate! Glad that you're part of the TE family.
As to this photo in particular, I'm loving the simplicity, there's really not much that needs to be said that it doesn't already exude in atmosphere. A quiet and calm wait for the boat, kind of a peaceful elegance. Looking forward to many more!

Congratulations on your two years on TE and here's to many more. I have so much enjoyed sharing your gallery of fantastic photographs from Greece and reading your critiques which are always so thoughtful and encouraging. Superb minimalist shot with just two people on the end of a pier,the sea and the sky but the composition is superb and really makes the shot.

I apologise for my belated wishes, I haven't been on TE lately due to my mamma still not being well. But my message comes from the heart: congratulations, it is a privilege to be your friend, to swap ideas and exchange photos and critiques. Here's to many many more years here. Your photo is very fitting to celebrate your 2 years here. The 2 people alone admiring the natural beauty of the sea. Minimalistic, beautifully composed and defined. A wonderful contribution as always.
mirosu (15386) 2013-12-01 5:52
Congratulations Dear Ourania,
Sorry for late message, I was a bit busy. Now to your Anniversary photo, excellent as usual. You are posting perfectly balanced photo by placing the pier with the people nicely to the right and the water horizon to the upper third of the frame. I like the simplicity, the excellent quiet water with nice textures and the superb reflections. Vertical framing works well here.
Very well done my friend.
Wish you a peaceful 1st Advent Sunday.
subhendu_bagchi (25975) 2013-12-05 3:28
