One of typical scenes you´ll find while strolling Fira´s alleys.Combination of dominating white architecture and blue sky as a backdrop.Here even that guy blend so well with his blue shirt in the scene:)
I hope you´ll like it!

like the originality of your POV here. Having strolled the streets of Fira it is so easy to just snap away at the views, and not see a different take on all the others taking photographs around you. This is wonderful because it is not the normal touristy shot. Love the perspective and beautiful clarity plus this image captures the mood of the place succinctly. A classy and unique image from one of the most photographed places on the planet! Well done!
Have a great week - B.

I love this view, your composition and the title you invented too! You made a wonderful use of perspective, it hasn't only given depth and rendered your picture very attractive but has exalted the character of the natural and architectural settings too. The man is well integrated in this scene and we relate to him sharing his interest in the view below. I also love the light, the different versions of white, the graphical shadow and the thin bright line of the fence, the vast view and the absorbing blue in the background. An exquisite picture, congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great day,

Good capture, taken from a good angle taking in the buildings and the caldera.

J'aime beaucoup ce point de vue qui pousse le regard au loin dans l'image vers le personnage qui se tient devant la chapelle .J'aime aussi le jeu des ombres et de la lumière. On sait automatiquement que l'on est en Grêce.

You made me lough this evening, Krzysztof, B&W for blue and white... that's an original.
only photographers would lough about.
Nice taken the high veranda view above the caldera, The man gave good scale against the dome and in contrast to the seascape view.

Czasami wydaje mi sie, ze pod kopuła takiego greckiego kościółka kryje sie astronomiczny teleskop, ten sam kształt jak w obserwatorium, piękna kompozycja i światło wykorzystane maksymalnie, pięknie

Krzysztof Witaj, lovely composition with good light and nice deep color, very well captured in this beautiful and interesting picture, with excellent clarity and quality. Excellent and interesting job well done, congratulations my friend. Thanks for sharing this beautiful work.
Good evening and happy start to the week.
Best wishes from southern Spain.

Not many spectators to enjoy the magnificent views!
When you use the words 'blue and white' I believe most people will think at Greece, at the Greek flag and at the islands.
Great capture of this church on the edge of the cliff.
Best regards, Paul

That wall leads so perfectly into your scene here, and as a reward to the eye that travels, this iconic shape of the building at the edge. What I really love here is that we have kind of two images in one, on one side the beautiful building and rich textures of the cobblestones, while on the other a drop to the glittering sea. This is such a beautiful place, it makes me feel cold in a grey Irish Springtime.
Thanks as always Krzysztof
ACL1978 (7511) 2014-03-03 12:37
Hi Krzysztof - I see we're neighbors today. Awesome shot here; I love the leading lines to the tower, and the sparkling blue water beyond. Interesting light, too - I think the reflections from the building onto itself add a cool dimension to much of this. Thanks!
macjake (73063) 2014-03-03 17:45
Hi again Krzysztof
another nice shot from this heaven on earth!
looking at the dome, do you know what the things are sticking out? what area they used for, whats' their purpose?
this place always looks so pristine, I wonder if there are any grunge areas on the Island?
a fine textured photo with beautiful views even dispite the white light on the right. Gotta love this place!
see you around

Oh, I bet this gave Brian a huge smile, this kind of perspective is right up his alley...so to speak! lol
Now, I'm guessing you took a fair share of the wide, sweeping vistas that are impossible to resist...but this concept to concentrate and show more of the towns layout, while still showing the sea side, is brilliant. It offers more unique views and really showcases the underlying charm of the town itself.
What a great anchor point the dome makes in this composition, and you've lead us there with ease...and plenty of sunshine. :) Smart thinking to include the guy in the near distance, his blue shirt links the color from the sea and sky into a nice little ensemble. This may sound odd, but my favorite element in this shot is the hard shadow from the wall...that "thin" line of heavy contrast makes the lead in even stronger.
Most importantly though, you've once again provided oodles of warm atmosphere and a sense of casual living. Great place to spend any day, yeah? :) Enjoy the new day ahead. Take care.
Cheers from land locked Arizona,

Hi Krzysztof - You have used the wall and narrow pavement as a strong lead in line and here it adds dynamism to your composition as it sweeps my gaze to the beautiful church projected so attractively against the sky. I find the soft colours and warm light very attractive. Yes, the typical Greek colours of blue and white but here with a warm tint to add atmosphere to a fine shot.
Have a super day

cześć znowu, Santorini kojarzy mi sie właśnie z blue and white chociaż zdarzaja sie tam i inne kolory. Oryginalny kadr, świetna głębia i fajnie że tam ktos stoi.

hello, the trademark of Greece here. I always feel astonished whenever I see such white and blue combination from Greece. How it can be? There were a lot of photos from Greece where we can see such combination which is very much pleasant to eyes as here. Great composition with fine depth and sharpness. Excellent work. Tfs.

nice the view of this section of Fira,with the narrow pedestrian to lead-in the eye on the passing by young man,as the church too on the backdrop of the scene.I like the way that the man blend perfect with the whitewash of the walls as the brilliant light of the day that enhance the details of it.

widze, ze sporo ciekawych miejsc na swiecie zaliczyles w ub. roku. Tutaj przyjemne greckie wspomnienie. Fajnie przemyslana paerspektywa prowadzaca wzrok do glownego tematu. Dobra prezentacja z Cyklad.
adramad (50002) 2014-03-05 7:18
Great perspective that gives this wall, which leads the eye toward the dome of the charming chapel, with good perspective coastline in the distance.
Beautiful colors, especially with that beautiful blue sky.
Superb sharpness and brightness.
Have a good evening.

Ciao Krzysztof, great perspective on beautiful architecture, lovely composition with lonely man, splendid light, excellent clarity and wonderful colors, very well done my friend, ciao Silvio

Ciekawie przedstawiona perspektywa z tymi wszystkimi liniami prowadzacymi do czlowieka i kosciolka w oddali. Masz racje, ta niebieska koszulka bardzo dobrze komponuje sie z otoczeniem. :)
eldancer1 (36343) 2014-03-06 7:51
The Greeks are very good in combining the colors blue and white--beautiful and pure. Nice capture of this scene and good to have the person for scale. Well done, tfs.
jhm (161013) 2014-03-08 0:29
You chose a very well angle this cares for depth and perspective.
The handrail lead us excellent to the man in background before the nice church.
A nice composition, perfect captured.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice weekend,
Romano46 (18472) 2014-03-08 6:31
la composizione ha un grande impatto visivo e spinge la vista verso la chiesa.
Ottima la gestione della luce e la cura del dettaglio.
Ciao e buon fine settimana
mcmtanyel (29752) 2014-03-08 12:30
The narrow alley is leading the viewer's eye to the building with the dome (church?) very effectively. Excellent composition, great DOF and a very pleasant subject.
Kamilutka (8107) 2014-03-08 13:18
bardzo dobra perspektywa z brukowana galeria prowadzaca oko w strone pieknej kopuly. Znakomity puntk widzenia i dobrze oddane kolory (przy okazji, podoba mi sie takze tytul nawiazujacy do nich). Dobry wybor pinowego formatu, ktory podkresla charakter zdjecia.
serp2000 (45970) 2014-03-09 7:42
Well, I think this is a main reason for the colors of the Greek national flag. Original vertical composition, good perspective.
This photo evokes to come back into that so warm days. I will think about the next trip ;)
