The waterfront area of Mykonos Town is known as 'Little Venice' and for obvious reasons. Here I liked the colour of the sea contrasting against the reddish brown rocks in the fg. Big package tour boats from other Greek Islands and doing Mediterranean cruises dock top left and passengers walk to and from the town, on daytrips. Meals and drinks in Little Venice are quite expensive and if you're on a budget it is recommended to seek out a much cheaper 'Taverna' even if it does not have absolute waterfront views.

The distance between the beach an the houses is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details, the colors of the sea and of the buildings. The good luminosity is bringing out the beauty of the colors. Have a nice day.

J'aime beaucoup quand cela brasse un peu pour la photo. Ici, les vagues semblent assez forte. J'aime le point de vue sur la ville et ses belles couleurs blanche et bleu. La lumière est superbe.

One of the most photographed spots in Mikonos but still always so pleasant to look at, showing the beautiful white façades of the waterfront. Beautiful capture with the rocky beach in the FG giving depth to the image. The blue of the water contrasting with the white façades makes this scene very attractive.

Very interesting and attractive picture, for its white & blue buildings and the colors & transparency of those waters that were so beautifully captured by you!
TFS - congrats,

Good evening Chris,
Magnificent turquoise color of the rough sea, and great contrast to white houses along the waterfront.
Blue shutters and windows frames in a returning-pattern is a marvelous sight.
Nice taken photo.

From reading your note i THINK I have my answer already, but i'll ask it anyways....
I've seen dozens and dozens of photos from this or very very similar shorelines from Greek Islands, but have never seen anyone actually sitting and eating/drinking at the tables!!! They're always empty!!!!
just like the empty chairs on the right here.
is it just because of the high cost? and if so, why not reduce the price a bit to at least get some customers!
as for the photo, its beautiful.
the white and blue colors stand out so well, and the active water adds a nice atmosphere.

Un magnifique contraste de couleurs créé par les maisons, l'eau et les vagues. Superbe capture.

Joli point de vue sur ce bord de mer avec ces immeubles "les pieds dans l'eau" et cette mer un peu agitée mais aux belles couleurs.

Superb place in lovely colors. I like the picturesque of this image and the dynamic of the waves.
Enjoy a nice weekend.

Beautiful postcard from Greece! Love the combination of blue, white and brown tones here which built a really charming scene. Perfectly executed clarity and sharpness made the image simply fantastic! TFS!
Have a nice weekend!

love this view, brings back so many memories and seen here with a rougher sea it makes the atmosphere and magic of the place all the more palpable. Personally I always use the tavernas the other side of here in the harbour. They are a lot less expensive and are used by the locals and have bit more character to my mind, nevertheless I know this part of the town is amazingly popular, and your shot does it full justice.
Enjoy your weekend - B.

J'aime le POV sur les habitations en bleu et blanc au bord de l'eau, la couleur de la mer agitée, belle présentation

This is a wonderful architecture picture with the blue windows.
Perspective and depth are here extraordinarily lovely.
Composition and presentation are excellent.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice weekend,

An interesting pov on these famous houses with blue balconies, well framed with the sea and these waves.

I like very much the vividness of this iconic view that fills the frame with the colours and natural elements this place is known and loved for. You took a bold decision to show the light as brilliant and overwhelming as it really is, the result you got is so effective. I also like the luminosity of the whites, the vivid textures, the powerful motion of the sea, the sense of the strong wind blowing. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a wonderful year!
