The distinctive almost fortress-like white walled church that dominates the harbour on the Greek island of Skopelos.

You have achieved a great sense of depth with the sharp, white walled buildings set against the dark, conifer clad hillside.
I like how the natural rock, to the right, seems to evolve into a garden and then the walls of the church. It is a fine use of the natural elements and so well portrayed in your photograph.
Excellent light management.
Have a good day,

Hello Brian ,
It is rare that you post such "classical" postcards :)
This is a superb one . The amazing white churche standing up from the hill in the BG . I like the framing with the parking , too , a mix of boats and cars !

This is very provocative photo for me. 'cause I want to go somewhere again. Excellent photo from Thessaly, I have never been on that Island but I know this region from 2012. Oh, I see this is your archive photo. TFS!

The massive church is well placed in the frame and makes an excellent focal point set against the dark toned cliffs. I like the graphism offered by the steps leading up to it. Well exposed with good colours contrasts and excellent sharpness.

A very fine cityscape and a beautiful church. The white stairs add a good diagonal line up to the church on top of the cliffs. An attractive view!

Good evening Brian,
The houses painted white and the church built on the rok, stand contrast onto the mountain slope across the bay.
parking boats and cars added some "modern" elements to the scene. Fine use of light, and good clarity.

mi piace la tua inquadratura millimetrica, la chiesa svetta sulla roccia e la sua bianca presenza si staglia contro la parete della montagna.
Bel colpo e interessante condivisione.

Très bonne photo de cette étonnante église blanche haut perchée. La montée d'escalier "structure" bien l'image.

Hi Brian, This time you looked deep in the drawer. Not Santorini island and also fascinating view. Splendid monastery on the rock. Perfect composition and sharpness.
