Swietna fotografia, Krzysiu! Kapitalnie udalo Ci sie uchwycic letni wieczor w turystycznym miejscu. Ja bym pewnie godzinami czekala az przechodnie znikna i zrobiloby sie juz pewnie ciemno :-) Najbardziej podobaja mi sie kolory. Brukowana uliczka, miasto w oddali i widoczne na drugim planie wzgorza stanowia ladne tlo dla kolorowych ludzi.
Calosc uzyskuje dodatkowego uroku dzieki pieknemu niebu i swiatlu.
Bardzo udane zdjecie! Pozdrawiam

Lep pogled na setaliste i trenutak sa posetiocima ...
Dobar trenutak snimak, ostrina, kontrast i perspektiva, lepo pokazano setaliste i trenutak sa posetiocima.
Lepo ulovljen trenutak, dobra kompozicija.
Lepo mesto za odmor i druzenje.
Lepo popodne i sve najblje.
Nice view of the promenade and the moment with the visitors ...

Oh, yes, this view invites me to the next trip! Very marvelous and romantic photo with so nice sunset colors., fine DoF.

This is a vivid and rich photo that makes it interesting. There is much to see and spot. Usually I don´t like if there is much empty space on the foreground but it works well on this photo. Composition is good, and colors as well. A lone palm shows well the windy weather.
Good photo, thanks for sharing.

a delicate HDR treatment for this inspiring part of Fira. Love the lines and the atmosphere that the treatment lends to this familiar view. Strangely this was the one part of the town that I did not photograph as it was teaming with school children when I was there, and I never got the chance to go back later. Sublime place and an image that does it full justice.

une photo attrayante avec une belle composition et une lumière très agréable. Toutefois, je trouve que les couleurs un peu saturées lui donnent un côté un peu artificiel.

the most you see snapshots like this never tired to watch and enjoy them.I like the excellent light and colour management with the pedestrian to creates depth and perspective in the image.Well done.
annjackman (21813) 2014-02-18 8:24
This is a very good example of HDR work giving amazing depth and saturated colours. The lines in the cobbled street lead-in very well. This is a place that I would love to visit.
Kind Regards, Ann

Good evening Krzysztof,
A marvelous sight of the Caldera on any evening, and especially on a clear evening, with the white houses village under superb glow.
DOF well collected, people added nice ambiance when stroll along, or just watching the sunset.
Pleasent to watch.
abmdsudi (53105) 2014-02-18 9:39
Just looks so typically HDR, such are the colours, light and exposure. Beautiful promenade with lots of interesting elements with great details and hive of activity. The clouds clinch the shot superbly, Well done shot. Congrats

the promenade of Fira is so high above the sea and offers spectacular views especially at sunset. The views from there are abundantly recorded but I think it's rare to come across a photo of the promenade itself. The hdr has revealed so much detail and accentuated the sense of depth. We can thoroughly enjoy a great range of details, from the pebbles on the paved road to the colourful town and the capes far away. Light and colours are warm and agreeable and it's fascinating to see the clouds so close. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great evening,
Romano46 (18472) 2014-02-18 10:06
l'elaborazione in HDR ha aggiunto un particolare fascino a quella che già di suo era una eccellente fotografia per la bellezza del soggetto e la perfetta composizione.
Complimenti. Hai fatto un lavoro straordinario.
Ciao e buona serata

Krzysztof Witaj very good view of this interesting and beautiful scene of daily life, with tourists walking in this beautiful sunset, with the interesting village in the background, very well composed and captured by a great pov in this great and beautiful photography. Interesting picture with good sharpness, very deep, beautiful light and color. Excellent job perfectly done, congratulations my friend. Thanks for sharing this beautiful work.
Good night and happy week.
Best wishes from southern Spain.

Hi Krzysztof - I love the composition and colours here but to be honest I find the processing has made the distant details a little indistinct. The cobbles in the FG are attractively textured and the lines of perspective sweep my eyes to the people and hill top buildings but to be honest I would like a little more clarity in the shot. I have to say though the larger version is much cleaner, perhaps it's the downsizing that has spoiled this one.
Have a good evening Rosemary
ktanska (27356) 2014-02-18 11:38
Excellent view of this fascinating landscape. I'm glad that nowadays it's possible to upload bigger images, so it's possible to have a good view on the background village. And still give a main role for that well laid out square with magnificient vista to the sea.
jcpix (13914) 2014-02-18 19:13
If the palm fronds are any indication, this would seem to be a windswept moment, but it doesn't appear to be affecting anyone's enjoyment of this gorgeous sunset that we can perceive by the warm glow of natural light. With the pictures you've already provided from here, for someone like me who has never been, I get a wonderful and strong idea of the relaxed atmosphere and raw beauty that abounds on this island.
What an super lead in with the long lines of the cobbled street, making great use of the negative space. Such a neat view to see the village off in the distance, creating that urgent curiosity to go and explore....but wait, there's an unbelievable sunset taking place which I must first sit by and soak up with every last bit of my being. :) I envy these people, and of course you as well, you got to experience both! :) A path I would love to walk myself one day, this looks and feels like bliss. Ahhhh....
Have a great day my friend. Keep these coming, more please!
Cheers from the crusty desert,

rzeczywiscie jest tam pieknie i widac ze ludzie naprawde ciesza sie pobutem tam. Przepiekna promenada jak i sam widok w glebi zdjecia. Piekna kolorystyka. Widok niesamowity i zachod slonca tez wraz z chmurkami ktore dodaja tez uroku tej pieknej scenie. Podoba mi sie w wykonaniu tez HDR dodaje wspanialego efektu. Super Ci to wychodzi.. Bardzo ladna praca jak zawsze. Gratulacje.
RhodieIke (11744) 2014-02-19 0:54
Amazing image especially in HDR, and it brings it to life as we feel we are on this cobbled street walking towards the beautiful Fira.So much to view and admire.
Wonderful, well done.
PaulVDV (28299) 2014-02-19 10:18
From this promenade you show us a very attractive view over the impressive cliffs till Oia and of the houses built on the outskirts of Fira.
The setting sun creates beautiful colours on the clouds and the houses. The visitors on the promenade constitute in itself a colourful appearance.
A little funny but the woman at the left seems to hold a fishing line, a funny optical deception :)
Best regards, Paul
macjake (67188) 2014-02-19 14:34
so those benches on the left must be the prime sitting areas haha
you know what, its amazing that i havn't seen this before. Its great to finally see the view pulled back a bit, to see how the scene is set as you walk up to it.
thanks for this new view, as it opens my eyes.
good work with the sky in hdr, thats always the hard part.
eldancer1 (36343) 2014-02-19 14:41
Beautiful and romantic scene! Nicely captured with good lighting and sharp details. Wonderful colors. Well done, tfs.

Hello Krzysztof! Just checking in after a long hiatus from TE... I see you've been busily traveling. Wonderful perspective here, and just stunning light, which seems to get better and better the further back in the shot you go. The city on a hill is a perfect spot for the eye to finish here. Really nicely processed HDR. Thanks, and hope you've been well!
kasianowak (8745) 2014-02-20 3:52
Urocze zdjecie z bardzo dobrze dobranym pierwszym oraz dalekim planem. Ladne swiatlo i chmury.
Pozdrawiam jeszcze raz
willperrett (10421) 2014-02-20 5:43
As soon as I saw the thumbnail, I thought HDR! Sure enough, it is. If it's obvious, it doesn't work: that's my opinion. The location couldn't be bettered (I haven't been there for best part of 30 years); your composition is impeccable (well balanced and with those strong lead lines in the cobbles); the evening light was superb. No need for trendy, clichéd post-processing! Sorry.
Gigidusud (20825) 2014-02-20 6:25
Excellent POV on Fira with splendid light and great perspective. I like the colors and the HDR effect. Well done!
adramad (44926) 2014-02-20 7:20
What a great perspective you get of this ride next to the cathedral, wonderful background with lovely covered hill and typical houses, the presence of all these people giving a vital touch to the image, but also conveys a sense of peace and tranquility that so ideal, that brings me great memories, beautiful sky and a nice afternoon light.
A colorful perfect very natural.
Great management of light and sharpness.
Enjoy a nice day.
emka (95399) 2014-02-22 23:35
cześć krzysiek,. Widzę, że mam zaległości do odrobienia. Fantastyczny widok Firy, znacznie rzadziej pokazywanej niz Oia. Zapierający dech widok. Wspaniała głębia i kolory, i ostrość też. Ale jak dla mnie zbyt widoczny HDR.
Didi (60588) 2014-02-23 9:02
Very good evening lights ambiance and also an interesting perspective with a deep foreground
mcmtanyel (21810) 2014-03-03 21:40
The colors are lovely, as brought out by Photomatix. With the marks on the pavement, the people look like they are in a race. Wonderful photo, TFS!
adores (45029) 2014-03-17 17:10
Beautiful daily scene, seems almost summer, with all these people enjoying the good weather. Guess it's not common to see this city from this pov. The clouds are perfect, I really light the golden sunset light reflected on them. Good composition and PP!
