A house in an alley of Platanos, on the hill separating Ayia Marina from Pandeli. Platanos is a densely built town that hosts the Town Hall of Leros too. It starts exactly where Ayia Marina ends up the hill, you almost can't see where their border is. The area in the foreground is not a yard but a public street.

More like an Italian style, with the brown-orange color painted facade, red windows shutters and door.
Red motorcycle fit superbly to the scene.
Good light collected, nicely added a "piece" of blue sky on top right.
Have a nice day,

A beautiful facade , especially attractive for the light and teh colors . The motorcycle is the detail that makes the difference .

excellent shot here. Like the shooting contrast with such vibrant colours. Excellent sharpness. The red bike at bottom created a nice balance in this composition, actually it is the eye catcher of it. Very good one. Tfs.

First many thanks for your valuable comments to my latest photo. I like this one, the house façade is in excellent light, the colors very well balanced. You have included in very clever way a small part of blue sky creating excellent color contrast. There is nice light and shadow play. Well done.

I like this a lot. It feels so warm, you can easily sense the sundays on your skin. The bike does a great job to the overall impression, as well as the two dark shadows in the corners.

This sunlit façade with its ochre tones is very appealing to the eye. I like the presence of the scooter, which adds a touch of vitality to the scene and is nicely placed by the door. Also, the pleasant warm light and saturated colours.

The facade is the subject of your photo and your have captured it brilliantly. The vibrant contrasting colors have come out so well. Good inclusion of the two corner shadows which brings out the bright areas more effectively. Very well thought out and executed photo.
thanks for sharing.

On est loin du blanc et du bleu qui font la renommée de la Grêce. Cette maison doit trancher sérieusement avec ses voisines. Mais elle est très belle sous cette lumière.

Très jolie façade baignée par une forte lumière qui rehausse les couleurs, il doit être agréable de ce balader a moto par ce temps superbe, belle composition

I love the rich colours here Ourania, the bright light has given the shot very good contrast. The shutters must be closed to keep the interior cool.....! Lovely. Warm regards Rosemary

You have a great eye, Ourania -- this is killer light (even the shadow areas retain some detail!), but the deep red shutters and doors make this a terrific color study, too!
I wonder -- was there any more green that could have been dialed up slightly in the plants in the lower left? The foto works perfectly as is, but a little splash, an accent, might also work.

Ciao Ourania,la foto mi piace perche' sembrano i colori della facciata di casa mia,stesso colore dei muri e stesso colore delle finestre...mi manca la moto,preferisco andare in bici..ehehe...ottima qualita' come sempre in un perfetto momento soleggiato.Buona serata,Luciano

It's surprising to see that this was taken just last week. The intensity of the light and colours makes me think of a hot day in August when it's a relief to get into the shade. These colours are really marvellous, and the good contrasts and sharpness give me a strong feeling of the texture of the material. The plants and the motorbike add those extra features that even a composition like this needed.
Romano46 (18472) 2013-12-18 13:28
Ciao Ourania, in questa il colore è il fondamento e l'essenza della stessa fotografia.
Un incontro di rossi e di bianchi simile non è facile incontrarlo tutti i giorni, ma te che giri sempre con l'occhio attento a cogliere le puù belle occasioni fotografiche l'ha colto immediatamente per inserirlo in una composizione molto garbata caratterizzata da ottima luce, splendida nitidezza e composizione accattivante.
Un bravo alla tua capacità di cogliere - giorno dopo giorno - le bellezze che ci circondano, quali esse siano.
Ciao e buona serata

Love the colors of this building, very warm and almost edible with the light and dark chocolate tones! Its amazing how the detailing of paintwork like this can add so much to an urban landscape. the triangle of blue sky in the top left compliments the dark earth colors nicely, and of course I must give a nod to a member of the scooter people stopped outside to pose for your photo :)

krzychu30 (15510) 2013-12-19 1:26
not only the scene appeals to me,also its graphics is superb!
Combination of strong,vivid colors and so lovely play of light&shade makes the image really unforgettable.
Not typical white facade,like for example on Santorini,but equally beautiful and picturesque.
Have a nice day

This is a nice study in colors, shapes and shadows. I like the inclusion of the fast-looking motorcycle.

Bellissima facciata con splendidi colori e splendida luce. Ben visto il piccolo pezzo di cielo azzurro che aggiunge l'effetto grafico. Compmlimenti!
abmdsudi (44966) 2013-12-20 19:51
A simple nice shot about geometric shapes, patterns, lines, contrasting colours and shadows of the characterful frontage caught by the angled warm light. It's bright and clear with great sharpness. Well done shot, Tfs

Hola dear Ourania
Capture of color contrasts in the well painted facade, white white round windows and door(with white courtains)
Good to leave a bit of blue sky for reference
And well composed capture with the scooter in matching colors
