ciakgiak (30383) 2010-12-16 13:06
in questo caso la centralità del soggetto è molto efficace, ben si addice a questo tipo di architettura. I colori sono molto belli e naturali, splendido il contrasto col cielo blu. Mi piace molto l'inserimento delle foglie di palme in primo piano.
Un caro saluto.

That's an excellent postcard with some stunning colors. The fronds at the sides frame the shot beautifully. The light is great and shows this pretty building to advantage.

The trees are framing well the building. The point of view is showing with precision the details and colors of the architecture of two sides of the hotel. The polarizing filter has a special effect on the colors of the picture. Have a nice day.

εξαιρετικός ο φωτισμός και η αντίθεση με το βαθύ μπλε του ουρανού, πολύ καλή γωνιά λήψης με ωραία προοπτική, μου αρέσει επίσης η πανοραμικού τύπου παρουσίαση και τα υπέροχα χρώματα.

Bonjour, mon ami Danos,
Cela donne envie de faire une petite halte au coeur de cette station thermale !
L'image est parfaitement assemblée (bravo pour les cinq photos).
Quant à la piscine : un véritable rêve !
ikeharel (44139) 2010-12-17 1:01
Nice corner view of the spa, Danos.
Interesting note, however people tend to regards thermal water as a magic medicin to all sort of purposes - my experience is a bit different...
Good angel as askew walls on both sides of building.
To my oppinion an aperture with lower number would less darkened the image.
josepmarin (56537) 2010-12-17 1:17
A fantastic perspective of the architecture of this beautiful building, by means of the stitch of 5 photos.
You have covered a wide visual angle, in order to offer us this beautiful image, with a great sharpness, a great graphical wealth, a superb luminosity and a high chromatic level.
Good work with the polarizer.
Nice work, my friend.
kordinator (14795) 2010-12-17 1:23
Beautiful architecture surrounded by blue skies and fine shades of green vegetation.

The framing vegetation works well and creates a feeling of depth, and the deep blue sky makes a great backdrop...
mesutilgim (73080) 2010-12-18 1:10
Good morning dear Danos,
This is also a perfect entry ! The layout is just brilliant. Wideangle lens was here the correct choice.
Dark blue sky helpes you to push out the building out of the scenery.
TFS and have a nice weekend

Effective filter polarizing here to emphasize this beautiful thermal spa. Strong contrasts are very pleasant. When one sees the interior court of thalassotherapy in WS, one guesses that the stay must be really beneficial for health and relieving !!! Thank you Danos for the informative note.
With all my friendships and an excellent WE,

You've chosen a very good POV to present us this building from an interesting angle and also to show us the sea and the lines of palmtrees at both sides of this hotel.
I also like your framing by the palmleaves and the special blue of the sky.

Αυτό το υπέροχο κτίριο, Spa, φαίνεται εδώ σαν πλώρη ένα μεγάλο πλοίο που ρέει ανάμεσα σε φοίνικες. Όμορφη αντίθεση ανάμεσα στο σκοτεινό ουρανό και ένα σαφές σχήμα του κτιρίου. Εξαιρετική ποιότητα.

An almost symmetrical composition which for that reason results very fine and harmonious. This lovely hotels stands out well against the intense polarized sky. Neat and well framed.
A strong visive impact.
Have a nice Sunday,
gunbud (34066) 2010-12-19 16:45
Placing this lovely architecture in the center of the frame works very well as the vivid blue sky compliments the varying shades of yellow.
The natural frame of swaying palms and lovely street lamps are additional fine elements of this stunning image.
mkamionka (27121) 2010-12-21 1:33
very nice symmetry, well broken with the palm tree. I like the strong contrast which enhances the summer atmosphere of the place.

asajernigan (19669) 2010-12-23 8:52
This is a nicely composed shot with the lines of palms on both sides leading the eye past the building. The overhanging trees frame the shot nicely and provide depth. The lighting and colors are great and the photo has excellent sharpness.
BWJ (3022) 2010-12-27 17:11
What a wonderful job you did stitching the five photos together to get this fabulous composition of the Thermae Sylla. I like the way you framed the shot with the palms. The deeply saturated clear blue sky contrasting with the light pastel colors of the hotel is eye catching. It is an outstanding shot!
batalay (33441) 2010-12-27 18:14
The intensely blue sky is a ideal backdrop for this shot, a display of perfect two-point perspective. The palm branches descending from the tree adds an interesting element.
Happy New Year to you and your family,

The luminosity is also excellent with that blue sky...the inclusion of the palm leave is also a nice detail

Many compliments for this outstanding stitch in which you show the best of the thermae; we see equally the same perspective on each side of building and we have the impression of facing the two lateral streets simultaneously, that point creates the magic of your picture.
Given that perfection, I presume you moved the camera sideways perpendicularly to the scenery to take the five pictures, instead of rotating it slightly on it's axis five times.
The result "is by the rules book"
Miguel82 (14536) 2013-06-12 8:06
