Here is a panoramic view of Athens seen from the Lycabettus hill. I'm sure that all of you will easily recognize the Acropolis with the impressive Parthenon. In the background you can see the ways down to the Piraeus.

Hello Gosia, my neighbour today !
Very nice nocturnal capture from Athens with very good light management.
Starry light close to Acropolis creates a nice mark in your compo.
TFS and have a nice day

ho ancora presente la tua versione diurna di questa città vista dall'alto dell'acropoli, però devo ammettere che questa ora blu è molto più suggestiva, oltre che più ampia nelle sue dimensioni che abbracciano oltre la città anche il mare con le sue luci ed i suoi riflessi..
Attualmente ti considero una vera esperto di questo genere di foto che richiede mota passione e l'uso indispensabile del cavalletto, ma se il risultato è eccellente - come in questo caso specifico - esso ripaga di tutti i sacrifici fatti per ottenerlo.
Ottima non solo la composizione, ma pregevole è in particolare la composizione che mette in evidenza una ragnatela di linee e di colori che disegnano una città bella, originale ed insolita.
Complimenti. Sei bravissima.
Ciao e buona giornata

C'est vraiment immense comme ville. Quel beau point de vue pour nous la montrer dans son ensemble. Une belle heure de la nuit ou toutes les lumières sont allumées. J'aime beaucoup l'étoile au centre.

Attractive bird's eye view of Athens at night, varying gold lights in geometric lines, including the classical Acropolis hill top.
holmertz (39569) 2014-04-09 8:21
This is a fascinating view of Athens by níght. The well lit façades along the major streets create a fine pattern. I am especially fond of the great star shining from below the Acropolis. The excellent exposure has created a perfect balance between light and dark areas.

interesujace spojrzenie na Ateny z drugiego, obok Akropolu, swietnego POV. Fajnie wyszla ta gwiazda w centrum. Przyjemnie popatrzec i powspominac, chociaz bylem tam za dnia.

splendida notturna, le strade sono disegnate dalle luci e su tutto spicca il Partenone.
La città affascina vista da questo pov e con queste luci dorate.
Eccellente esposizione e grande profondità, ottima tecnica.

Wonderful this great panorama, the city of Athens, with its high quality can recreate many identifiable areas such as the Acropolis, surrounded by the Plaka, the perfect shade of blue, which still retains the sky.
A magnificent management brightness, sharpness also
Very well seen and well done.
Have a good evening.

majestic night, majestic lights! And lines too:) How did you find that beautiful star just in the right place?
Wonderful work, fantastic mood.
abmdsudi (42012) 2014-04-10 16:35
Impressive night shot with all the glittering light and colours, great angle this was taken from and tidy composition. A long exposure allows for starburst effect of the lights, a real bonus to whole capture. A fine capture. Congrats

Przesliczne nocne zdjecie Aten. Piekne kolory - niebieski bardzo ladnie kontrastuje z zoltym swiatlem. Rzeczywiscie dobrze widac Akropol (i bardzo mi sie podoba na gwiazdka kolo wzgorza).

you management light skilfully. you captured wonderful view from city.
annjackman (19025) 2014-04-11 7:33
Athens looks so magical at night in this panorama. There is a good amount of detail in the shot and I love exploring with my eyes all the way back to the sea in the distance. Of course the Parthenon makes an impressive centre piece. Very well photographed.
Kind Regards, Ann
ChrisJ (95900) 2014-04-11 14:19
Athens never looked so good! Fantastic warm cold color contrasts between the blue and gold in this superb blue hour nocturnal hybrid shot with a marvelous high pov overlooking the city. I was lucky enough to visit the Acropolis seen in the bg last July. Tfs!
Silvio1953 (119690) 2014-04-13 5:19
Ciao Gosia, fascinating nocturne shoot, great POV on fantastic city, wonderful colors and splendid light, very well done my friend, ciao Silvio
ourania (29445) 2014-04-13 7:38
I love Athens and this view very much and really admire and appreciate the way you took this fine photo. You have defied the darkness and the challenging lighting contrasts and offered us a wonderful, clear view in which landmarks and details are easy to spot and recognize. I like very much the velvety blue tint and the lucid golden strokes that spread across the cityscape and set off many of its special characteristics. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great evening,
tulipan7 (668) 2014-04-13 10:13
Exceptionally clear shot with so many good and visible details... I also love how yellow 'warms' up the predominantely blue tones...
Too bad the light below Acropolis is a bit too strong but there are few such lights in the distance as well (though not that bright) which balances it up a bit...
Great night shot, love it...
amaryllis (34208) 2014-04-14 8:19
tes photos de nuit sont toujours bien réussies comme celle-ci en plongée sur Athènes
une belle heure bleue et une lumière bien gérée
delpeoples (52931) 2014-04-18 6:28
Witaj dear Gosia
What a wonderful POV you got here, with stunning light management and beautifully regulated colours. I have never seen Athens from this angle. You have done this place justice!
Warmest wishes and Happy Easter

macjake (54940) 2014-04-20 10:36
I'll have to find out where this lookout point is.
I'll be here in about 1 month from now.
lots of purple and blues in this one!
love the yellow inbetween the building blocks of the city.
excellent use of the F18 to create the star effect too.
see you around
chrislo (4151) 2014-04-20 13:28
The POV is breathtaking and gives us a splendid view of Athens at night with a great depth of field. You must have found one of the tallest buildings in Athens to get this shot. I actually feel that I'm standing there looking at the city lights. I like the way you brought out the lights with great twinkling effect on some of them, too. The brightly lit acropolis at the rear adds to the beauty. Perfect exposure control resulting in lovely colours and fine detail. This is excellent work. Keep it up !
jemaflor (83046) 2014-04-23 23:23
great nightshot perfectly managed, good sharpness for detail and waht a beautiful contrast between shades and lights, nice result with these stars, tfs.
Corry (4508) 2014-04-25 5:01
Très belle vue nocturne avec beaucoup de lumières. Le point de vue permet d'apprécier la grandeur de cette ville. La présence de la lumière étoilée ajoute à la composition. Bien fait.
tedesse (25099) 2014-04-28 12:25
Piekna nocna panorama Aten!
Doskonaly POV, super ostrosc i kolorystyka.
josepmarin (57697) 2014-04-30 0:23
this is a fantastic bird-view over Athens, captured superbly at late afternoon, with a beautiful golden lighting of the city.
We admire the gorgeous beauty of the Acropolis and the deep perspective of the streets towards the port. You've perfectly managed the settings of your camera, specially the f/18 value, with which you have reached the star shape light in the middle of the framing, and a great sharpness as well.
It's a beautiful composition.
clic (14712) 2014-04-30 15:53
As blood circulates inside arteries, night life flows into Athens streets for an outstanding poster!
Many compliments for the masterly-taken mood!
jcpix (13404) 2014-05-04 11:17
Not often we get to see Athens like this under the cover of night. The street lights really make the city come alive here, weaving in and out of the urban landscape. The Acropolis makes a terrific centerpiece in this composition, and the long exposure to create the starburst effect just below, is the right touch to set it apart. It certainly takes on a new character at night, and the appeal is just as enticing to the visual senses. Hard to wrong here, yeah? :) Lovely shot indeed! Hope you've had a nice weekend. Take good care.
adores (35721) 2014-05-04 17:23
A very good pov to show the city in the blue hour. The exposure is just great, I really like the star effect of the lamp and the details are well visible.
serp2000 (39250) 2014-05-07 21:42
Great! Thumbs up! Fantastic night view of Athens, Gosia!
Perfect exposure, the composition, the colors and sharpness are superb! My congratulations! This is one of the best photos from the Greek capital on the TE!
tatadalou (6069) 2014-05-09 11:36
I didn't remember the Lycabettus was so high ! The view is just amazing, I like the patterns formed by the enlightened streets in the darkness. The light just down the Acropole looks so nice, like a star. Perfect light management. Well done !
Indrasish (2847) 2014-05-17 12:38
What a shot.. i like your point of view.. Lovely long exposure.. I like the composition and the framing.. Superb image quality and nice colors too.. very well done..
