View from the beach of Ayia Marina, Leros, towards the north-west. The light is on Alinda, a village by the sea. Most of its houses are inhabited mainly in the summer. Old or new, they are very nice, have lovely gardens and a special aura. Alinda has been a much cherised summer resort since the 1900's. This is where the first hotel on the island was built about a century ago.
Above Alinda is the highest peak of Leros, Kleidi, 321m. The height is not impressive but the view of Leros, of the Aegean and the nearby islands from there is marvellous.

The beautiful effect of this magnificent composition, with the play of light and shadow on the background population and the mountains, the sky is spectacular and complement the image beautifully.
All in all a beautiful work of this point on the coast.
Have a great evening.

questi sono i cieli che mi piacciono tanto, e che da soli potrebbero già star bene.
La foto è chiaramente impostata su di esso, anche perché il paesaggio sottostante è rimasto leggermente in ombra, ma tant'è, lo scatto è riuscitissimo, bello, armonioso e piacevole a vedersi. I miei più sinceri complimenti amica cara.

una immagine che si muove tra luci e ombre con il mare coperto dalle ombre e il cielo rischiarato dalla uce.
Mi piace il BG con il sole che illumina le case,

This is another very beautiful day in lovely Leros. The low altitude clouds look magical and as a common sense expected to exert a strange pressure on the town. But strangely that does not ruin the charm and peaceful atmoshphere, besides the light accross the shore looks lovely and inviting. Who would not want to be on the summit of Kleidi and watch this sensational scenery. This is surely a beautiful composition that stirs up positive feelings. Thanks for sharing my friend. Have a good evening.

You waited a passing cloud, favorable light. The sky is beautiful and helps to give depth to the picture. Sharpness is good. Bravo.
Have a nice day

in difficili condizioni sei riuscita ad ottenere un ottimo equilibrio tra luci ed ombre: il paesaggio è quello di un'isola in primavera. Quello che colpisce di più è il cielo, in cui hai catturato nuvole fioccose e fantastiche. Complimenti.

Very nice capture from Leros.
Good pov and perfect layout. Good idea to leave greater space fro this cloudy sky as background.
TFS and best regards

Nuvole e mare.
Un binomio che esce in questa foto.
Quando si fa per mare il colore ed il gonfiarsi del mare un brutto segno .
Fotograficamente, al contrario, la resa è ottima.
eldancer1 (36343) 2012-03-23 9:50
Very nice capture of this seaside village. Great pov and it has a good dof with nice details. Love the colors of the clouds and sky. Well done, tfs.
ChrisJ (112461) 2012-03-24 0:08
Good lighting on the bg village as you say, with good shadow detail in the fg as well. Excellent colour, saturation & sharpness. Love the repetition of the clouds & low horizon line. Tfs!
macjake (67188) 2012-03-24 11:13
I really enjoy this view, simply because of the clouds!
clouds can make or break a photo, without them so much detail and attractiveness is lost.
here, the clouds seem to power over everything, dominating the photo.

this is a very nice presentation of the coast under this fantastic sky taken from a very well working POV. It is not only the nostalgic mood that makes the image attractive, it is also how the clouds are moving. My compliments!

The moment not to be missed as the sky is displaying the best show of the day, a wonderful creation of nature, the stunning fluffy low cotton clouds extremely steal the attention as strong focal on interest. This, coupled by the striking contrast and rich colors are indeed very significant and influential in making this awesome image. Love the depth and dof too, as we gets to move smoothly around the frame, the soft shadows and lights on the slopes further beautify the overall scene. Well done, Congrats.
