A window high up on a traditional village house in the beautiful and less touristy town of Pyrgos on Santorini, Greece. Somehow the blues in Greece seem to catch the eye and stand out in the clear air under the Mediterranean sun.

Fine capture, very picturesque old window. I also like the blue sky triangle from the right.
Fine scene, well done.

very rich and intense colours. The presentation is powerful with exciting and effective color contrast. The deep blue against the white.
I noticed that the Greek sky is very exciting and very dramatic in colour. It is really a great thought to have left a bit of the sky on theright.
Well done indeed from such a simple shot but the creative composition that gives the power.

I like that you have seen the smaller details during your time in Santorini and taken the effort to photograph a series of small-scale features such as this window. It really highlights a unique building style, colour scheme and indicates the vibrancy of the locals. I like the wedge of blue sky at the top to compliment that of the window. Your trademark black frame and white title is a well constructed element of your presentation, it works well as always.

Lots of very atmospheric postcard pictures from the Greek islands in your gallery, Brian. They make me want to discover them in real life some time. This rather minimalist pic is one of the stand-out shots for me. Very pure. I also really like that triangle of sky up there.
Have a fine weekend.
