Chalcis or Chalkida (pron.: /ˈkŠlsɪs/; Modern Greek: Χαλκίδα [xalˈcia], Ancient Greek/Katharevousa: Χαλκίς), the chief town of the island of Euboea in Greece, is situated on the strait of the Evripos at its narrowest point. The name is preserved from antiquity and is derived from the Greek χαλκός (copper, bronze), though there is no trace of any mines in the area. In the late Middle Ages, it was known as Negropont (Italian: Negroponte, "black bridge"; Greek: Νεγροπόντε), a name that was applied to the entire island of Euboea as well. (wikipedia)

An amusing photo and very well composed too. The men are well placed facing different directions like they don't want to meet the other's eyes. The red details brighten the view. The light and colours are also very good and there is an attractive line of clouds going across the sky.

A relaxing atmosphere under a soft warm of the sun. I like your framing with splendid clouds on the top. Good result!
