A port scenery full of boats at Saint Costantine church
in Volos city
Despite the dramatic sky the weather looks nice and I decided to have a stroll next to the sea
It is joy for everybody to have free time to enjoy a walk like this

you are my neighbor today :-) and you presented really lovely photo from Greek port. The moody sky provides very picturesque background for this scene. I like the church on the shore which is very interesting example of architecture and the colorful boats in the foreground to catch an eye.
Well balanced composition and good saturated colors.
Thanks for sharing and enjoy the rest of the evening

Hello Costantino ,

perfetta la composizione e bello in maniera particolare l'accostamento di colori che brillano entrando a contrasto con il grigio del cielo che si riflette anche nel colore del mare.
Perfetto il formato quadrato che si addice perfettamente al soggetto.
Ciao e buona serata

πολύ όμορφη παρουσίαση το κομματιού αυτού του Βόλου,με το καμπαναριό της εκκλησίας του Αγίου Κωνσταντίνου να δεσπόζει της φωτογραφίας.Οι βάρκες και οι εξωλέμβιες στο λιμάνι συμπληρώνουν το όλο σκηνικό.

This is very attractive view with fine colours and a nice combination of boats and the church. The dark clouds provide a great backdrop to this sunny view.

Geia sou Costantino
I went on Google Earth to see the immediate environment of Saint Costantine Church and realised, seen from above, the greater distance between the bells tower and the waters of the Pagasitic Gulf than on your picture.
Thanks for the rigorous verticals than add majesty to this outstanding take!

πολύ ενδιαφέρουσα σύνθεση, μια όμορφη και ελκυστική εικόνα από το λιμάνι και την πόλη του Βόλου. Μου αρέσει πολύ ο τρόπος που οδηγείς το βλέμμα του θεατή μέσα στο κάδρο, από το ένα στοιχείο στο άλλο. Υπάρχουν πολλές ενδιαφέρουσες λεπτομέρειες, άλλα στοιχεία είναι πιο εντυπωσιακά και έχουν πρωταγωνιστικό ρόλο και άλλα απλώς συμπηρώνουν το πολύ ευχάριστο σκηνικό για καθημερινή ζωή. Το βάθος είναι εξαιρετικό, αξιοποίησες τις ιδιαιτερότητες του φωτισμού θαυμάσια. Συγχαρητήρια και ευχαριστώ!
Να είσαι καλά, καλή σου νύχτα,

Beautiful scenery, Costantino. I like all elements, above all the cloudy sky.

Ciao Costantino,quando il sole bacia la terra ed il cielo sullo sfondo minaccia pioggia,il risultato è sempre garantito....scenario bellissimo dal porto di Volos,con il campanile piazzato come una cornice naturale sulla destra e grandi colori e dettagli.Buona giornata,Luciano

Very beautiful port scene. I like the colors and the atmosphere. Good catch!

hello Constantino - I agree with you, it is a pleasure to walk in a location like this. There is plenty to look at especially by the water where the boats moor. An attractive shot with the boats and tower making excellent subjects. The dark sky is an added bonus. Warm regards Rosemary

Glad to see that there aren't anymore those huge waves.
The overcast sky provides an excellent backdrop and makes the white grey church tower stand out wonderfully.
With the boats you've included an attractive foreground and their red and blue colours make them more eye-catching.
Best regards, Paul

Grandisoe compo et vue quelle tour blanche et iamge quel effet sur la pierre avec les bâteaux qui se marient parfaitement sueprbe port et ensemble.
macjake (51476) 2014-02-21 8:45
its pretty hard to resist this shot.
there's just something about the subject or the ambiance that attracts me to it.
the tower works well too because its something we dont really expect in a marina type scene. Excellent colors and light.

Nice picture thanks to the dramatic sky and good point of view on the belltower

Belle vue a la fois sur le port et la tour de l'église, belle lumière et couleurs sous le ciel dramatique, très jolie réalisation

An attractive blend of the Volos sea front boats at rest, then the classical architecture of Saint Costantine Church, and all in good resolution.

Constantino, first I would like to say a few words about this picture..a port scenery that is so simple and yet so attractive with the beautiful colors and the laid back mood!
also the great contrast with the angry sky is simply fabulous!! The red boat giving the special touch of a "painting" is result of your very special point of view to include it in!
Then I would like to thank you from my heart for your very sweet comment on my last post...I would even dare to publish a book with my pictures dear friend....I hardly get any comments..I really appreciate your vote of confidence and I promise to be a better amateur photographer and to post better pictures in the future...just for you!!
a big hug
npecanhuk (60246) 2014-03-05 4:04
Level of sharpness, exposure, colors, chosen pov and composition truly pleased me in this one!
TFS - congrats,

the threatening sky adds a very nice touch here indeed. It contrasts well with the brightly lit foreground. Boats make a nice foreground with some inscriptions in Greek alphabet confirming the location. The modern church adds more interest.
Very well done,

the church looks like a mix of traditional and modern architecture and it is very interesting. nice view of the port and the boats. good vertical format.
