Not far away from the town of Xanthi, we encountered that wonderful mosque! The weather was extraordinary good, and those clouds, so amazing!

Your composition is great here using a vertical format to give the photo depth and detail. The lighting and colors are great with nice sharpness and DOF. The deep blue sky contrast the bright colors of the building and tower.

we had a similar idea about our last photo title! And you choosed a very good title for this beautiful composition.
The sky is stunning: only in Greece you can find this kind of blue!

Γειά σου Αθανάσιε,
Αν και ο φωτισμός είναι κάπως παράξενος (σκληρός και παράξενος) η σύνθεσή σου είναι όμορφη και καλοζυγισμένη.

Hello Athanasias. A wonderful shot of this remarkable tower against the blue sky and fluffy clouds. A very good exposure of all those bright white walls, and good sharpness. I like the little areas of green and the yellow door. Very nice shot.

Lovely shot. We go to god in different ways but we all want to be happy.
Nice colours and the minaret with the cloudy sky is just wonderful.

Athanasios, now this is strong light! I had to run and put my sunglasses on to look at it and yet I hardly can see any overexposure. Very nice to see that the wide angle approach didn't compromise the verticallity of the minarette at all. Wonderful polarized sky.
vincz (19113) 2007-09-12 0:39
Great vertical composition with vivid colors. I love how the vertical format makes the minaret feel even bigger, trying to reach the sky. Very well done.

I love the dark blue sky. it's really beautiful !
Bruno40 (6658) 2007-09-12 4:53
Great contrast between the pure white of the building (a mosque?.. no note!!) and the deep blue sky.
Well composed. Nice caption. Bad not to have a note, even a short one.

Nicely captured view on that specific church. A very interesting shot, and nice composition.
atus (15838) 2007-09-12 10:46
what a gorgeous shot here, considering also that was captured with an analogue reflex camera. The colours are fantastic and the details, thanks to the perfect sharpness are very well visible.
Great one! Tfs and best wishes.

Γειά σου Θανάση,
Υπέροχη φωτογραφία με πολύ καλό φωτισμό που αναδεικνύει περισσότερο το τζαμί. Ο ουρανός είναι πολύ εκφραστικός και βοηθά για μια εντυπωσιακή φωτογραφία σαν αυτή. Υπέροχη δουλεια!
thiv56 (1590) 2007-09-19 23:26
Εντυπωσιακή φωτογραφία, με πολύ ωραία γωνία λήψης, ζωντανά χρώματα και υπέροχο ουρανό. Ο κόκκος του φιλμ όμως, με ενοχλεί κομμάτι. Έτσι, τόλμησα και τον μείωσα λίγο στο Neat Image, όπως θα δεις στο WS που ανεβάζω. Ελπίζω να σου αρέσει.

Wonderful perspective,light and colours
I like blue sky and clouds
yuo (1182) 2007-09-27 2:57

but i feel strong the sunshine from this.
sadeik (3268) 2007-10-17 8:56
A bold and pretty building and I notice its fromfilm. A very good scan though the cloulds are just slightly over exposed, not sure what you could have done about that. Agreat architectural shot
patdeph (35748) 2007-11-05 7:33
beautiful white mosque perfectly framed!The saturated colours are superb and the contrast between blue and white is wonderful.I also like the sky with its very white clouds!Magnificent!
testmaniac (13508) 2008-01-11 8:20
Hello Athanasios, you have a very nice composed photos but why you don't use digital SLR camera? The photo quality will be much better.
hispic (9619) 2008-05-16 2:15

Have a nice weekend, Hisashi
