Beautiful setting of Myrina's old port.
Magnificent light in the hour just before dinner, when the restaurant tables are still empty.
I like the composition of the image.

Splendid place for drink a cup of coffee or perhaps a good glass wine out of Greece.
Excellent sight on the marina too.
But you took a very well image, pleasant for look at.
Sharpness and clarity are superb.
Excellent composition, good presentation too. TFS.

Une belle carte postale de Grêce. La petite terrasse est prête pour le repas du soir, ou les clients vont profiter de la chaleur et de la vue.

just before dinner? But I do not see any guest. But maybe they will come. I would come - it is so inviting - the blue tables just near the boats, you could even take a fish from a boat and ask to prepeare for you. It would be delicious.

There is very special light on this scene making it look very inviting for dinner. A great blue and white theme punctuated with some red. You have captured the lamp in a a very good place against the beautiful blue sky. Lovely work - very well done.

Per me che abito in una grande isola ...ma con numerosi porticcioli e ristoranti tra barche e tavoli ...queste foto ed il tuo titolo esaltano ...
Vorrei essere lì e se possibile tra un piatto di ricco cibo locale ...da italiano un piatto di spaghetti all'astice o aragosta ...ed un vino dei nostri antichi vitigni ...a cena 11 gradi ...ma dopo un rosso 14°

Όμορφη, μικρά σκάφη και μια μαρίνα δίπλα στην ταβέρνα περιμένει τους επισκέπτες της. Μεγάλη φως και τα χρώματα, τέλεια ευκρίνεια.

A well composed presentation of this picturesque seaside scene!
This would be a great place for dinner, I agree...
The low afternoon sun gives a very special illumination of the place!

Too early for dinner at your shot, but I think that this terrace would be fully occupied later. A nice shot on this restaurant, I like the presence of this retro lamp, which gives a good depth to this beautiful image quality in both color and in the management of lights. Pretty and pleasant look, thank you Vasilis.
With all my friendships and a very good end of WE
macjake (53342) 2011-05-08 5:06
how could anyone NOT admire this cute little scene that you've captured.
the Iconic white and blue of Greece with the table and chairs, the peaceful small Marina and the elegant light post.
overall, a lovely shot
