A view from the marina of Lakki towards the town. The long building was constructed during the first period of the Italian occupation, 1924-1936.
A new architectural style was created then, that
(quoting from http://www2.egeonet.gr/)
"combined Venetian and Gothic features with decorative motifs from the Dodecanese folk art as well as loans from the tradition of neighbouring Arabian Mediterranean countries. A new eclectic architectural vocabulary resulted from the mixture of all these styles."
The building hosted barracks of the Italian Navy and was severely damaged during the aerial bombardments of 1943. Now its ground floor hosts several services of the Municipality of Leros.
Thank you for visiting, a lovely weekend to all

Its amazing to see, how many diff. POV's you managed to take in a small place - and each is different, Ourania.
Great bright daylight over the sea and boats, superbly taken in a vertical format, and with excelent clarity.
Enjoy your weekend,

These picture is a lot better than your previous with the reflections as an aquarelle.
I like these boats and the small forest of masts.
Also nice depth and perspective picture.
Excellent composition, nice presentation too.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice weekend,

in questa sono ancora presenti i colori dell'estate, ma l'ambiente ripreso è quello della vita di tutti i giorni con le barche da pesca pronte per un'alktro giorno di attività sul mare alla ricerca di cosa vivere.
Mi piace il punto dal quale hai effettuato la ripresa che crea una bella diagonale formata dalle barche e giusta la scelta del taglio verticale che offre lo spettacolo degli alberi che si contrappongono in bella serie all'azzurro del cielo.
Quanto ai colori sono quelli che la Grecia è sempre in grado di offrire e in questo caso sono arricchiti anche da un bel riflesso nell'acqua.
Ottima la nitidezza.
Bravissima.Sei formidabile nel trovare sempre spunti nuovi ed interessanti.
Ciao e buon fine settimana

Good morning Ourania,
Beautiful harbor image. Fine reflections in the water, and the brown shed to the left is really nice.
The main building looks great behind all the masts. Fine comp!

Nice shot of the harbor.
I like the light reflecting of the water to the boat in the foreground. It has given it a new design, very good detailing over there. I love the way you show the municipal building through the crowd of masts and yet maintained superb clarity.
Good shot with an informative note.

A beautiful marina, and one thing I love about the marinas in Greece is the tall rigging of the boats. Here in Ireland, the boats tend to be fishing boats and purely powered by engine so they don't have these somewhat romantic touches of the tall masts. I like how you have composed the boats against the interesting looking building too, that looks like a palace. I see from your note that it was a barracks, I would never have considered that, it looks too opulent!
Thanks as always, have a lovely Saturday

Hello Ourania - A lovely quiet scene featuring the colours I associate with Greece. I like the way you have framed the shot in the vertical and the diagonal placing of the two primary boats. The scene benefits from attractive colour and pretty light. Have a great weekend Rosemary

A fine composition with the line of masts making an excellent lead-line, giving the image depth and helping draw the viewer in. The image is pleasantly lit and has agreeable natural tones. Lovely reflections to be observed in the shimmering waters of the marina.

Beautiful with the multiplicity of masts in the sky on this small corner of the marina.
The white building on the background looks beautiful and together with the blue water in the harbor it makes a bright summer view in the colours of the Greek flag.
Best regards, Paul

J'aime beaucoup ce cadrage vertical qui sert bien ces beaux voiliers et l'ensemble des mâts qui se dressent dans un ciel parfait. L'ensemble est d'une grande netteté et la luminosité est supérieure.

πολλύ όμορφο το σκηνικό από τη μαρίανα στο Λακκί. Ενδιαφέρον το κομμάτι αυτό με τα ιστιοφόρα που γεμίζουν το πλάνο και δημιουργούν ένα ενδιαφέρον οπτικό αποτέλεσμα.Το λαμπρό φως της ημέρας αναδεικνύει τα χρώματα και τις λεπρομέρειες της σκηνής.

Interesantan tekst o starom pristanistu ...
Lep pogled na ribarski camac i pristaniste ...
Dobra kompozicija i perspektiva, lepo pokazano mesto sa ribarskim camcima, lepe boje.
Ribarski camac ceka nov dan za lov ribe.
Prijatno vece i mirna noc, sve najbolje.
An interesting article on the old pier ...
Nice view of the fishing boat and a dock ...
Good composition and perspective, nice place shown with fishing boats, beautiful colors.
Fishing boat waiting for a new day of catching fish.
Good evening and peaceful night, all the best.

Bonne utilisation des reflets en avant plan, bon format avec les mats qui pointe vers le ciel bleu, belle présentation
Belle soirée et bon Weekend

As usual there are many fine details in this photo. Among those i am especially fond of the "skyline" of the masts, that are very nicely forming a shape almost like a pyramid, the highest one in the middle and then getting gradually lower on each side. I think that if I had been standing there taking the same photo I probably would have noticed other things but not the arrangement of the masts. They would have been a nice surprise afterwards. But maybe you saw this at once.

Hi Ourania, very good picture of this interesting scene of daily life of the fisherman on his nice boat, very well captured in this beautiful and interesting image, with good sharpness, light and color. Very good and nice job perfectly done, congratulations my friend. Thanks for sharing this interesting work.
Good night and good Sunday.
Warm greetings from southern Spain.

A nice framing with atmosphere of this little harbor. I like the light, colors and reflections. Well done!
mirosu (12684) 2013-12-15 1:29
Outstanding photo. The perfectly lit white boat is excellent focal point of this photo. There is a great use of depth of field to hold the viewer in the foreground boats as well as buildings and trees in BG, and the excellent lighting conditions and nice reflections have allowed for very good color saturation. The overall impact is very strong. Very well done.

It's been flurrying all day long, so this is just the kind of image that will warm my heart. I love those reflections and reflections of reflections.
ciakgiak (30407) 2013-12-16 4:21
grande qualità, luce e colori! E come sempre perfetta scelta del soggetto.
Le tue foto sono sempre molto semplici e particolarmente piacevoli!
Un caro abbraccio

Hola querida Ourania
Still in Lakki and a vertical capture where the protagonist are the white masts in contrast with the ( again) blue sky
Also good, your signature, the catching reflects on the waters
It was interesting to read about the building at the back because is very similar at some in South America, colors and windows
Well done , wish you a great week in Lakki

Hello dear Ourania,
Very nice capture of the harbour of Leros.
Perfect layout and nice light.
TFS and best regards
ChrisJ (94842) 2013-12-19 11:57
Nice reflections, good sharpness and perfect density levels. What's not to like about this image? Good repetition of the bg masts and the warm cold color contrast between the red and blue on the fg yacht is superb! Tfs!

Ουρανία, βλέπω αυτην εικόνα σου και σκέφτομαι μονο τραγούδια του Μάνου Λοίζου....δεν ξέρω γιατί...
ενα υπέροχο δέσιμο χρωμάτων, μια αντανάκλαση που ειναι ο καθρέφτης της απλότητας του τοπίου και μια καθαρότητα που μονο να ονειρεύομαι με κάνει....αν προσπαθήσω λίγο ισως αγγίξω τήν θάλασσα του πανέμορφου νησιού σου...
