A detail from a huge, box-like building that stands on the coast of Ayia Marina. This side faces the narrow coastal road and its other side rises just above the sea. It has a lot of doors and windows all over and is divided in two. The red part has been used throughout its long existence, the ground floor being a shop, a restaurant or a cafe' and its first floor hosting a couple of apartments.
The other half of the building had been closed for decades, dilapidated and almost a ruin, a huge bird nest with a view to the bay. Some months ago its reconstruction began and its shaping up gradually. The name on the plaque must be the first owner's.
Thank you for visiting

beautiful old facade and really great idea to present it in "tilt".It gives some dynamism and "twist"to the scene.
But as much as your perspective I enjoy here the strong graphical effect you achieved with so excellently captured textures of this old wall.
Have a nice day

Good idea to show us this cropped composition with the desk. Excellent close up, fine details of the architecture style, I also like this creative angle. Well seen.

Interesting all this number of various stones textures, as well as colors. It is making the shot.

A nice close up shot of this plaque on this colourful building. Superb colours and contrast and captured. Great detailing on the walls and the plaque. I like the wonderful light which is helping to bring out the textures on the facade so well. Again a fantastic minimal composition, I like it a lot. Very well done. Thanks for sharing.

Hello dear Ourania
Nice capture of this marble plate from 1895. The tilted form and nice bright brick colors creates a perfect effect.
TFS and best regards

A beautiful close up , with an attractive tilt , and a splendid palet of tonalities Under this superb lighting.

This is an original and very attractive composition. You found it in a place that would probably have gone unnoticed by most photographers, in spite of the fantastic colours. The tilt made the composition more interesting by creating a number of diagonals. The well captured texture of the stone also akes this a very attractive photo.

I was travelling in winter mountains with very limited access to internet, this caused that I missed your latest beautiful photos.
Excellent old façade detail photo with very nice colors, perfect light, very good clarity. I like the tilted arrangement. The well-chosen tight crop eliminates all unwanted distractions. Very well done.
HAPPY NEW YEAR
WINTER IN SWITZERLAND

J'aime beaucoup l'aspect texture de cette composition. La lumière très forte fait bien ressortir les détails de cette partie de l'immeuble. J'aime aussi le petit côté graphique de l'ensemble.

An interesting detail on this building, and a beautiful array of texture and color across it too, this looks superb! I like the chosen angle you have here as well, it works very well for this close detail of the building.
I often think when I see modern buildings with the names, and the date of construction that it seems rather vain to include the detail, but I guess in 100 years time, people like you and I will appreciate the story that the plaque tells, as its fascinating to be able to instantly date a building in this way.
Great subject and shot.
Thanks as always

J'aime l'idée du cadrage, une lumière qui est très belle qui permet d'apprécier les moindres détails des pierres et du rendu des couleurs, belle image et intéressante note
amaryllis (33426) 2014-01-14 5:54
les détails de cette façade sont fabuleux, de plus une blle lumière, en effet coupé en deux par les couleurs et cette belle plaque avec l'inscription
Ta note nous permet d'en savoir plus, interesting

namaste, a nice composition indeed. Love the graphical presentation with vibrant and contrasting colours. Love the framing. Good sharp details. The letters in the middle added a lot to it. Superb one. Tfs.

A nice askewed angle on the unique facade, red and baige plaster shown well under light, and in sharp details.
Well collected a fine view.

A lovely detail from this facade with beautiful colors, pleasant shapes and lovely texture. I like the tilt you have given to the subject.

Fine original detail. I like the contrasts and the textures.
Enjoy a nice day.
abmdsudi (38862) 2014-01-15 8:17
Lots of grot going on here, Lovely warm light, colours and contrast bringing out the textures really well, but imho this is works well too for mono but the warmth of the tones here mean colour would be best. A fine close up work and a fine composition well shot, Congrats.

πολύ όμορφη η εντοιχισμένη πλάκα που πληροφορεί το διερχόμενο επισκέπτη για την παλαιότητα του κτηρίου.Εξαιρετική η παρουσίαση,με τα χρώματα να κάνουν το τέλειο κοντραστ και το φως ν΄ αναδεικνύει τις λεπτομέρειες και το καλλιτεχνικό της φωτογραφίας.

Ciao Ourania, gran bel dettaglio, ottima nitidezza e bei colori brillanti, brava, ciao Silvio

Original idea with the presentation with tilt, good result with this light and nice colors, tfs.
delpeoples (52301) 2014-01-19 19:40
This is so eye-catching. Both the rich colours and textures, and the slightly angled POV are so compelling. I also like the warm light which has beautifully illuminated the wall and its details, turning the ochre colours incandescent.
Beautiful photo, the subtle black frame is very tasteful.
adores (33936) 2014-02-02 3:47
A very beautiful shot! The diagonal, the light, the colours, the textures... it's a wonderful detail and you captured it really well!
