View across the caldera from Imerovigili with the little town of Oia in the distance, perched at the very top of the island of Santorini, Greece.

Good Morning Brian
I'm back! Had a great time in Barcelona. A very sharp and clear shot - that single cloud is almost 3D in this shot. Very sharp with great depth and good use of gate as FG interest.

Colours very typical of the Greek Islands are nicely displayed here. The composition is clever and very effective making excellent use of the graphical lines offered by the foreground architecture. Love that cloud streaked sky.

Hello Brian,your imaginative use of the gate in the FG helps to give the shot a really nice depth with good use being made of the upright format.
All the best,

una bicromia praticamente perfetta con l'alternarsi nella composizione del bianco delle costruzione tipiche della Grecia ed il blu del suo mare.
Ottima la composizione e piacevole il taglio che dà una particolare evidenza al primo piano.
Eccellente la profondità di campo e la conseguente nitidezza.
Ciao e buona giornata

Your photographs are excellent, no doubt.
This photo impresses the viewer because of the color, perspective and the fine frame.
I understand your attitude to the issue of copyright theft.
In your hand is what to do to ensure your rights.
There were times when I thought I'd stop sending pictures on TE but I decided to continue having as priority the main purpose, the knowledge and the image of my country.
That is why I remain active.

Excellent study in white and blue. Amazing composition, great clarity and color purity

Just so very Greek, in every way! The blue and white are able to take precedence over all other colours, in a most natural way.
The f/g is impacted by the cleanliness and the closed gate, which, happily, we are able to negotiate to move onwards to that wonderful sea. Fine sense of depth.
My warm regards,

what could I say for this magic place?
I would like to be there admiring the
dynamic contrast between blue and white
two vi vid colors in an amazing composition

Great shot of the door. Nice image, sharp with good details, well saturated colors and nice composition. Well done.

Una foto muy bonita y artística, me encanta la composición que has elegido, ligeramente inclinada, rompiendo un poco así la monotonía. Esos colores son magníficos (el contraste del blanco y el azul es genial, huelen a Grecia por todas partes).

bellissima composizione, mi piace questo cancello bianchissimo su questa panoramica incredibile, la profondità è fantastica.

On aimerait ouvrir le portail et s'asseoir sur cette terrasse pour contempler ce superbe paysage maritime des heures durant.Très belle photo!

I'm glad I didn't missed this one! A masterpiece of artistic work by simple shapes and strong contrasts. Good work as usual.

A very interesting POV and composition.
I like blue-white tones of colors and light.
An impressive picture.

An idyllic view out over the sea from the isles, this is beautiful! I really like the many lines presented with this composition, the foreground almost feels like a maze as it works its way to the dark blue waters. That little touch of sunlight on the top of the remaining section of land is a delightful bonus, and has been perfectly placed within the frame. Have a great new week ahead.
Best wishes from Phoenix,

This is some view, imagine waking up to this every day! I imagine I would refuse to leave the house and just sit here, camera in hand to capture every change in light and mood as the day and the seasons roll past. The blues are so vivid, and the sky is like a work of art. I really like that you included the gate to give that extra layer of depth. I would likely not have done that, and this is why I love to learn here on TE, as I see the importance of including it.
