this weekend i headed to Kalamata, where my family comes from.
after a day of swimming, I just relaxed on the balcony, with a glass of wine, to enjoy the sunset over the messinian bay! What more can somebody want!
i recomend to everyone kalamata (or the more touristiki stoupa) for vacations. There are charter flights from most european countries directly to kalamata.

Pleasant close-up work on a wonderful backdrop!
Very moody colours, all match so well in creating this awesome atmosphere!

Hi Marianna, amazing and romantic shot.
exactly what i need...a cup of wine and a great view down on the sea at the sunset!
excellent POV, good composition, focus, light and colours.

Nice view with very soft colours. I would also enjoy a cup of wine there ;-)
elan2004 (437) 2006-07-18 4:35
Hi Marianna, great picture. The soft delicate colours, the out of focus background ,all add to the dreamy effect, I think its the view anyone would have after drinking the wine!.
Great composition, pov, and colours.

Μπράβο Μαριάννα! Καταπληκτική ιδέα και σύνθεση- αποθέωση της απλότητας. Υπέροχα χρώματα! Χαλαρωτική και ταξιδιάρικη φωτογραφία. Εξαιρετική!

The closeup of the cup is a nice idea.
Enjoy your holidays while other people can't... :P

There is a phrase in Italy that tell:
"A same wine and a good friends"
if we can put this view will be perfect!

I don't drink wine but i enjoy this composition. Beautiful soft colours, framing is perfect :-) I wish to have apple juice :-))))
pasternak (15181) 2006-07-18 6:11
Like this shot, Marianna, so nice colour of wine, and it matches the colours of the sunset so nicely. Very good composition and shallow DoF. You make me really vacation-thirsty...:)

Ppeople say that a glass of wine contains all the sun that during the maturity process grape catched. And this is just the proove that greek wines are one of the best. Nice shot. Have a nice day.
sined (4523) 2006-07-18 7:58
luminous landscape in and out a glass of wine ..
cheers Marianna !

Cormac (26545) 2006-07-18 10:36
Great idea! I like the simplicity of this, with just the glass of wine and the beautiful sunset and no distractions. This manages to convey the mood and feeling very well. Great work!
cunejo200 (7281) 2006-07-18 11:14
Hi Marianna, My parents took me to Kalamata when I was 12, and I have lots of good memories especially the food. Very lovely and laid back composition here. The colors are very pleasing, and of course the perspective is splendid. Best wishes - Danilo
leo61 (0) 2006-07-18 14:06
Great composition,well done.The glass is placed perfect and the pink/red colors are wonderful.I like the dark stones in the foreground,they are a verry good contrast with the sea.Excellent POV for this one.
balatrek (7455) 2006-07-18 14:44
Interesante punto de vista, los colores son muy bellos, nos muestras dos cosas en un mismo tiempo, paisaje y primer plano de la copa, es una imagen que invita al reposo y la relajación, felicidades.
zeca (19762) 2006-07-18 19:12
Hello Marianna! It looks like great, or perfect time! The picture is very well done, with nice lights and excelent framing.
Emile (20350) 2006-07-19 1:03
Excellent composition, the glass of wine with this beautiful and well captured DOF. Very good colours and POV. Nice to be there drinking a good glass of wine and at the same time enjoying this amazing place.
Well done and TFS.
Dianchen (189) 2006-07-19 5:09
Hi! There are wonderful corors of the red sky and wine...
nicoz (1979) 2006-07-19 5:31
I wish my glasses could be that clean!!! Good idea for this shot! It looks a bit like an add for some wine! The colors of the sky and wine mix very well! Hmmm... thirsty now...
ben4321 (9875) 2006-07-19 7:46
I think this is really excellent Marianna. Its a very simple concept, but you've executed it superbly. The colours are superb and I like how the colour of the sunset is echoed in the glass of wine. Great technique; there is just enough blur in the background and your composition is very good.
You've done everything right here in my opinion, good work.
jcdurka1 (1950) 2006-07-19 12:42
Nothing better than taking a glass of wine in front of this landscape... of course in good company.
Good idea for this picture.
sergio1 (12152) 2006-07-20 5:15

Πολυ καλη ειναι αυτη! Δοκιμασε αν θες λιγο saturation παραπανω και ισως και λιγο levels. Μπορει να γινει ακομα καλητερη! Παντος ειναι και ωραια σαν ιδεα.
danyy (0) 2006-08-23 3:53
assurément la photo la plus originale de ta galerie.
Il y a ici la recherche de la cohésion des couleurs, celle du fond de l'iamge et celle du vin.
Excellente netteté avec en plus cette DOF impeccable qui donne du relief dans cette photo aux lumières et aux teintes douces et chaudes.
colinbrenchley (6431) 2006-08-28 16:21
Why does Greece have this effec on photographers! I went to Santorini in May this year and photographed bottles and glasses at sunset. It must be something to do with sunsets in Greece!
kael29 (902) 2006-08-30 6:20
viewed all your gallery, it is this photography which touched me the most because it represent for me all the good moments that I pass in Greece. I go there every year since 16 .
in my glass there is rather retsina :-)
savask (1891) 2006-08-31 5:10

Very simple and beautiful! Well done!
yanm (1485) 2006-09-19 3:28
Very good and clear. Have you drink from that glass before you shot this ?? I think it better if you still not drink it :D
shal (944) 2006-09-19 5:04

danos (84301) 2007-06-01 8:49
very good your choice with the glass of wine to find οn the table and 'look' at this marvellous sunset.Perhaps if existed a hand to approaches the glass the result would be more realistic.Well done.
sebinho342 (19317) 2007-09-28 7:18
