Γεια σου Χρυσούλα,
Εξαιρετική η ματιά σου και η σύνθεση, οι σκιάσεις και οι αντανακλάσεις στο πλακόστρωτο υπέροχες, μια πολύ όμορφη φωτογραφία.
Καλό τριήμερο, Βασίλης.

Une superbe prise de vue, avec un jeux de lumière et ombre très intéressant.
j'aime bien le détail des pavés, et la personne en contre-jour

Stupendo il gioco di luce e il momento catturato, ottima anche la nitidezza e il taglio verticale.
grigand (19567) 2011-06-10 12:36

What a shot!! You have chosen an amazing moment to take it! Everything is just perfect - your subject, point of view, light management, quality of that picture.
Like it very much. Bravo!

on sent tous le poids sur ces epaules
une ambiance accentuée par le sol mouillé...
un presque noir et blanc tres reussi

Thanks for sharing this beautiful work. Captured in perfect light and with good effect of the shadow and the wet cobble stones. A truly beautiful picture, well exposed too. Congratulations! Have a nice WE.
Best regards, Erling

Γειά σου Χρυσούλα,
μου θυμίζει σκηνή απο ταινία κάποιου καλού σκηνοθέτη η φωτογραφία σου!
πολύ καλό καδράρισμα και καταπληκτική προοπτική,
ο φωτισμός δημιουργεί μία μυστικιστική ατμόσφαιρα!
υπέροχη φωτογραφική σύνθεση!

Hi Chrysoula - Fabulous POV, light management etc. etc. but for me it is the creativity of the shot that impresses. Top class, kind regards Rosemary
peppe59 (14551) 2011-06-11 2:54
complimenti sai raccogliere delle sfumature della vita che avvolte ci sfuggono, bellissimo il controluce ed il POV, mi sarei aspettato da te un Bianco e nero, ma va benissimo così.
buon fine settimana
timecapturer (49286) 2011-06-11 3:28
this is such a striking image in thumbnail but all the more impressive at full size. An amazing POV and composition that is so evocative and thought provoking. Your execution is perfect and the presentation awesome. Superb!
Enjoy your weekend - Brian
prasun984 (5590) 2011-06-11 8:20
like the composition with the bags carrying man going through the lane in between the buildings...like his reflection on the lane...nice chosen POV with vertical framing...gd colour contrast with nice exposoure controlled...very gd street shot...
Charo (51210) 2011-06-11 13:50
Very well captured this composition, which almost looks B / W.
I like the shadow on the wet floor, the lady walking with your purchase on his way home.
The floor gives a nice graphic.
Excellent light and detail.
geoant68 (331) 2011-06-11 14:03
εξαιρετική μαυρόασπρη φωτογραφία με την γυναίκα στο μέσο του καλντεριμιού να πρχωράει φορτομένη με τις τσάντες της.Η αντανάκλαση του φωτός είναι τέλεια, δίνοντας μια άλλη αισθητική στη σκηνή.
daddo (24414) 2011-06-12 2:04
Hi Chrysoula. Very evocative image. The effect of the narrow road, the sharp contrast between light and shade, the sharpness of detail and the placement of the figure all contribute to make a statement about many things that fall under the general term-the human condition. Well conceived. Best wishes. Klaudio.
JFS (32459) 2011-06-13 12:14
What a moment! Delightful shot, perfect light management and lot of fine details. Bravo!

Excellent shot very good!!!Greetings..

Ciao Chrysoula, affascinante composizione con l'anziana donna curva sotto il carico delle borse, magnifica luce, splendida prospettiva, i colori son talmente attenuati che a prima vista sembra un bianco e nero, fantastica l'ombra della donna, bravisima, ciao Silvio
jemaflor (85510) 2011-06-21 12:26
Interesting view with a perfect subject for a b&w presentation, great contrast with the silhouette, well the brightness with the wet street, well made, tfs.
GREGG (7888) 2011-06-22 11:51
very successful composition in low key.
Good effect of the shadow and the wet cobble stones.
pippotirella (687) 2011-06-22 13:03
bellissimo taglio con ottima profondità..un colore..che sa di bianco e nero. Ho visionato la Tua galleria...splendida Ti seguirò.
annjackman (19937) 2011-06-24 12:07
Superb photo work! The light on the wet cobbled street forms a perfect BG for the lady carrying her bags. Her posture suggests that the bags are heavy and your title is very apt. The light management and sharpness are excellent.
rodgerg (55767) 2011-06-26 2:27
Excellent vertical composition. The POV well selecetd and the particulary light well managed give an image full of athmospher. The attitudes of the ols passing peopel are very well collected. Congratulations.
Have a nice Sunday,
bebbetto (12) 2011-06-29 12:21

composition and excellent use of lights
you did your best with your stamp
Bartleby (13552) 2011-07-10 11:07
another interesting dark and mysterious shot from you. The woman is perfectly placed within the frame and her attitude very telling.
erdna (5711) 2011-07-14 12:38
Beautiful shot! Composition is very well done that the minor areas do not dominate the main area. Your focusing on the foreground magnifies the importance of the human image. i browsed through your gallery and saw very good works. Architecture has trained your eyes to true compositional proportions. Take it from a fellow architect.
Thank you for your visit and comments on my New York photo. You will have your time to visit New York. You are still a young woman.
wolf38 (31282) 2011-08-03 6:05
The game of photographers with light, shadow and contrast is a beautiful thing. Everything is reduced to a few pixels. Here it is the woman in the middle of the sunlit street. The photo is strong and looks great. Rgds, Wolfgang.
eldancer1 (28513) 2011-09-06 9:14
Wow! Simple but so powerful a composition! Awesome use light to create this image. Great pov and dof with nice details. Well done, tfs.

Tes photos de rues sont superbes...Bravo!
madhumita_roy86 (2344) 2011-10-12 9:19
Great colour & superb shot.... very nice POV good lighting management....
CLODO (30597) 2011-10-14 5:32
Hi Chrys, again
The essence of a good almost B&W picture: light, matter, sense of image reading; I would have removed a part of the top (the white sky is too eye catching).
Nevertheless, an image I would like to be the author!
batalay (35745) 2011-10-28 20:38
You have combined the native Hellenistic sensibilities and genes and Renaissance Art education to create a first class photograph. It's spectacular shot, and deserves all the accolades it receives.
Pentti (1451) 2011-10-30 11:54
you have a great collection of figures
this one is really superb as already said many times
Keep sending in the future too. Happy 5 years TE-anniversary.

Great shot. Excellent composition and good light management. Not sure if you used a tripod. If not, you have great hands.The title suits the tone and composition of the image.
