A little group of idle fishing boats at the end of the coast of Alinda. In the distance the Castle of Leros and the settlement of Ayia Paraskevi.
Thank you for visiting, a lovely weekend to all

Une image où les couleurs chantent à merveille. Très jolie présentation de ce petit port.
L'environnement mérite une visite.

We see the old history almost come back (1943), with the boats in foreground and the castle high above on the top of the mountain.
A wonderful panorama view, about these lake and the a lot of nice environment.
Also a high quality picture with very original colours.
Excellent composition, nice presentation.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice Pentecost weekend,

white and blue colors of the boats, beautifully mingle on the bay scenery, Ourania.
View from sea up to the fort atop the mountain, nicely composed with the houses on the slop and tree on left.
Enjoy a nice weekend,

An idyllic scene Ourania. The cluster of small boats are well lit and colourful and make a pretty FP in the larger view. You have achieved very good clarity throughout this shot and the details presented on the hillside are crisp and well contrasted I think.
Enjoy your weekend

Hello Ourania ,
A pleasing composition , with this charming little fishing boats in the Fg , and the hill with its castle in the BG . The tree on the left complete perfectly the view .

A well composed shot of this little harbour. The colour and clarity are very good, and the anchored boats with the houses nestled into the hillside behind make an interesting view. A beautiful and traditional sight of a typical Greek harbour. Lovely image.
Have a nice weekend.

une composition très réussie. Les bateaux sont baignés d'une superbe lumière.

You present us today with a very attractive well composed image. The eyes move naturally up the frame culminating in the focal point offered by the castle. I like the light and colours and the pleasant calm atmosphere.

A very nice view of Leros and a picture that combines different sights of the island: the curving coastline with the fishing boats, the white houses of the village on the steep slope and the castle on top.
Very attractively composed.
Best regards, Paul

Pas besoin de dire d'où cette photo provient. C'est la Grèce dans une belle capsule avec ces beaux petits bateaux de pêche à l'avant plan et cette montagne ou les maisons blanches s'accrochent au loin.
mirosu (15156) 2014-06-07 4:55
Superb photo. The white boats excellent focal point of this photo. There is a great use of depth of field to hold the viewer in the foreground boats, small landing place as well as the castle on the top of hill in BG, and the excellent lighting conditions have allowed for very good color saturation. The overall impact is very strong.
Very well done.
Wish you a nice weekend.

Ουρανία γεια σου,
χαριτωμένο σκηνικό με τις τρεις βαρκες να έχουν σαν φόντο το βουνό με το κάστρο να δεσπόζει της περιοχής και το χωριό της Αγίας Παρασκευής να ευρίσκεται στην πλαγιά του.Εξαιρετικός ο απογευματινός φωτισμός νομίζω, με τις λεπτομέρειες να καταγράφονται τόσο όμορφα στην φωτογραφία.
arnie (1803) 2014-06-07 5:28
Another great capture, lovely sharp colours on the boats in the foreground leading across the sea and up the hill to the castle.
photographer_sg (4410) 2014-06-07 8:21
that is a superb view of the castle across the water. The fishing boats anchor the foreground nicely and provide excellent contrast with the vivid blue water. The castle itself is positioned perfectly in the frame and forms a very nice focal point. Excellent work as always.
Thanks for sharing and have a great weekend.

You have done a wonderful job in creating three distinct layers in this scene, the boats, the village and the castle. This has made the scene have superb depth. In the foreground, I can once again almost feel the bobbing about of the boats in the sea, then I can admire the town across the shore. Of course, the castle is something I will always appreciate, being one of my favorite subjects!
There is really something for everybody in this.
Thanks as always for sharing.

Γεια σου Ουρανία,
όμορφη φωτογραφία με τις βάρκες στο πρώτο πλάνο και το κάστρο πίσω,
πολύ καλός φωτισμός και ωραία φυσικά χρώματα,το κάθετο κάδρο ταιριάζει απόλυτα!
abmdsudi (46286) 2014-06-07 22:04
A fresh high spirited boosting shot when the shore is bathed by the warm light where the coloured boats hold the focus firmly there. Great composition & your good viewpoint also leads to the historic site in the background which complements the whole shot attractively. Clarity is subtle backed by such good tones, and fantastic detail together makes it an interesting and eye grabbing shot. Fine lens work, Congrats

Ciao Ourania,una composizione davvero ricchissima,che inizia dal mare e finisce sul castello,ricorda un po' Rodi in miniatura con l'acropoli di Lindos in cima alla montagna.Foto impeccabile,gran scelta del POV e grande qualita' come sempre.Buona Domenica,Luciano
jcpix (13812) 2014-06-08 20:01
I keep asking myself with every picture you post, "How on Earth does she get anything done in a day when there's an endless supply of charming and easy-going scenes to photograph like this?" :) I'd have a hard time being motivated to do much else...but someone has to pay the bills, right...so off to work you go! lol
Even as inanimate objects, these boats play right into to your chosen title with perfection, virtually giving the scene a real-life presence all of its own. I see their bowed designs as big smiles in the harbor, and just as you dictate, soaking up the sun. Ahhhhhhh! Just another fine day in the Greek isles. Have a wonderful, sun soaked week ahead. All the best.

Ciao Ourania, gran bella composizione con le barche in primo piano e il castello a far da sfondo, ottima nitidezza, magnifica luce e splendidi colori, brava, ciao Silvio
holmertz (44572) 2014-06-09 12:01
It's amazing that this was already in March. To me it looks like summer. It's a lovely composition anyway with all the boats gathered in the bay below the hill with the castle. I could need some of that water where I am now in southerm Poland. It's as hot as in Greece but with only a dirty river running through the city.
Greetings from Krakow,

Lep pogled na camce i tvrdjavu na brdu ...
Dobar trenutak snimka, kontrast i perspektiva, lepo pokazano, lepe boje.
Lepi ribarski camci.
Prijatno vece i lepa noc, sve najbolje u novoj nedelji koja je pocela, srecno.
A nice view of the boats and the fort on the hill ...
Good time recording, contrast and perspective, well shown, beautiful colors.
Beautiful fishing boat.
Have a nice evening and night, all the best in the new week that started, good luck.

Ουρανία, ασπρα κόκκινα, κίτρινα μπλέ καραβάκια στο Αιγαίο....και τι ομορφα που στολίζουν τήν σύνθεση σου και το επιβλητικό κάστρο στήν κορυφη να στέκεται με τα χρόνια ακόμα αγέρωχο και να θυμίζει εποχές δοξασμένες..
αυτη η μοναδική υφη και το χρώμα τής θάλασσας δεν υπάρχει πουθενά ισως μονο σε πίνακες ζωγραφικής!!

Hello dear Ourania,
Another nice capture from Leros with good pov and compo.
Portrait format was a good choice.
TFS and best regards

Thumbs up! Excellent spring photo, although we have got similar summer views ;) Attractive FG with the boats and impressive castle on the top on the background.

Nice scene, excellent clarity and fine details.

La définition sur FB est moins bonne que sur Trekearth car ce site compresse les photos d'où la perte de définition
Ici j'apprécie beaucoup mieux cette image

Another very beautiful picture of lovely, charming and attractive details!
Sharpness, exposure, colors, vertical format, slim black borders, chosen pov and composition are all excellent!
TFS - congrats,
mcmtanyel (16093) 2014-06-26 13:07
Oh, yes! Let them soak in the sunshine, there will be enough cloudy days in the winter. The trio of boats look secure in the shadow of the castle.
adores (40468) 2014-07-05 9:44
I like the composition and the vertical frame. The little boats are well captured, with a good light and the castle is perfect in background. Good idea to include also part of the tree on the left. Seems a long way to reach the castle:)!
