Urban center in the southern Evia . By car from Chalkida (120km) and within an hour from the port of Rafina to Marmari. It is a city with well laid-out streets, squares and public neoclassical buildings. Seafront with traditional coffee spaces an ouzo taverns that predispose the visitor for the beauty that follows.
Karystos as it is today started to be built according to the street plans of the Bavarian engineer Bearbach, after the order of king Othon.
The people of the region are frienfly hard-working they love their villages and honour the customs and traditions of their area.

Seems like a cumulus cloud is building up in the horizon, very impressive!
A fine coastal landscape is presented, captured with pin sharp details and natural colours...
A well balanced composition with good depth!

Woow, fantastic view of the bay. Excellent depth, so many details to see, superb sharpness. I like the stones in fg. And to it, amazing cloud like a huge cap of cream.

Wow! A beautifully clear landscape photo, with stunning cloud formations! Subtle use of the polarizer seems to be the right choice here. A very pleasing photo, with great results for what I am guessing is mid-day. Fine work, warm regards,

A nice picture of this interesting place with so many colorful details. The cloudy sky is brilliant and has been cropped very well. Fantastic work, tfs.

The coastal town buildings look lovely but I am more impressed with the imposing cloud over the mountains.
Great details and sharpness

fantastic scenery, great management and white light, beautiful clouds looming over the mountains.

Βασίλη γεια σου,
η θέα της Καρύστου από αυτή την απόσταση φαίνεται πολύ ωραία,με την οξύτητα και την καθαρή ατμόσφαιρα να την κάνουν τόσο ελκυστική.Οι πέτρες στο προσκήνιο,δημιουργούν ένα καλό οπτικό σημείο και ο κόλπος βάθος στο σκηνικό.

Impressionnant ces gros nuages blancs au dessus des montagnes, très belle luminosité, l'harmonie des couleurs, une vue très jolie et bien présenter de la ville au bord de l'eau

incredible cloud formation that adds so much drama to this wonderful shot. I love the textures in the fg and the amazing Greek light. Awesome image!

Γειά σου Βασίλη!
Η λεπτομέρεια και η σαφήνεια του πρώτου επιπέδου σε συνδυασμό και του φόντου με το χαρακτηριστικό ουρανό έδωσαν στην εικόνα της Καρύστου 3D !Ενα κάδρο άψογο! Μια φωτεινή λήψη!

It is possible to spot immediately, that good CPL has been used here.
Excellent composition, superb colours, strong light.

Ce que la Grêce nous offre de mieux. Un petit port bien abrité, les petits bateaux de pêche qui viennent se reposer, une lumière magnifique et quelques terrasses pour en profiter.

Hi Vasilis, Great photo of this fantastic city, love the grey's, and low clouds, Well captured, Cheers Iain.
holmertz (42683) 2011-05-15 12:30
The rocky wasteland you have chosen as a foreground would probably look ugly in a different setting, but surprisingly it makes a perfect balance to the mountain, the white city and the tremendous cloud under the blue sky. I feel a certain urge to explore Evia, one of the least known Greek islands.

Boa tarde Vasilis
Fantastic the formation of the clouds. Spectacular landscape and a superb composition. Parabéns.
adores (38589) 2011-05-15 17:21
What a sky you have here!That claud is fabulous and I also like the idea of including this stones in foreground. Very good capture,with good colours, sharpness and dof!
delpeoples (53469) 2011-05-15 22:09
Kalimera dear Vasilis
This is a shot where the clouds have had a huge effect on the composition. Without them, it would be a good photo. But with them it is spectacular. I love the colours - especially of the stones in the foreground. The depth is good where we can see all the details of the village and mountains even though they are a long way in the distance. Thanks for sharing and I wish you a beautiful evening.

Εξαιρετική σύνθεση σε ψυχρά χρώματα. Η πόλη και το λιμάνι της σοβαρής βουνά σχεδόν από βλάστηση. Πραγματικά τέλεια εστίαση. Πολύ καλή ιδέα είναι οι πέτρες σε πρώτο πλάνο.

Amazing composition. Lovely colors and contrasts, incredible clouds.
Great work, have a nice week.
bona (13093) 2011-05-17 10:21
the huge cloud is amazing in the scene. It seems as part of the mountain covered by cotton. Nice phot of this place.
mesutilgim (86534) 2011-05-18 10:00
Hi dear Vasilis,
This one is absolutely a "top class work" !
Very good pov; the white cloud is almost like a crown over the city.
Nice soft colors and very good layout.
TFS and best regards

Fotografia di livello superiore
Ottima luce che evidenzia rendendo continuativa e piacevole l'immagine.
abmdsudi (44652) 2011-05-18 23:53
What a capture! something I have never seen before, the formation of the cloud is so stunning. A triangular shape truly miracle, you are lucky to have cpatured this beauty of nature.. Lovely compo with diagonal touch, lots of interesting detail in good colors and textures. The banks and waterway nicely guide the eyes into the far end. The exposure is so superb, much clarity throughout with good color tones and congrats is excellent against the rich blue sky. The glow and ripple on the water is a rel bonus. I think this one of your best shot to date and I admire your skill. A delightful image, Great effort my friend, Compliments!
Angshu (56180) 2011-05-19 5:08
A very crisp & clear shot, with the cotton like clouds almost 3D in effect. The layers work well & in good light with fine depth.
ikeharel (59393) 2011-05-20 1:09
Wonderful shot taken, as the impressive cloud "set" above the village and mountain, decorating the scene.
Clear view on bay, and those little stones in fg.
Robert1969 (7120) 2011-05-20 21:48
I like the balance in this picture, which started with a very good point of view (I like the foreground) and you make it's complete with a great compostion and light. The beautiful clouds is a nice extra...Good work.
