This composition and this colors combination really remind me your photos Greece. I did use a polarized filter, so the sky is jsut deep blue.
This is my next photo from Santa Barbara, we were here with Benedict Ong too.

A precisely framed graphical composition. The steps entice the eyes up from bottom to top. Ideally exposed with superb colours and clarity.

Interesting ziggurat leading upwards with our very popular geranium plants leading the way. These guys are very hardy and can handle abuse better than most.
Thanks for sharing,

hello Serghei ,
You' re right : that looks very greek .
A superb composition with an excellent light management .

I readily believed this photo had been taken in Greece, the architecture, the light and the colours are instantly recognizable and misleading:) An original and very attractive composition in a vertical frame, there's a fine balance of perspectives and the alternation of bright "greek" colours is delightful. I also like very much the effect of the various degrees of shadows. Congratulations and thank you!
Leros is full of red geraniums these days:)
All the best, have a great evening,

This really looks like the type of shot you would expect to see from Greece. The bright blue sky and whitewashed walls are so typical of that area. Your pov is cleverly chosen to make the most of the strong angles in the stepped wall. Well done.

there is not a rule that we can only write to one photo per member per day, so here i am again :)
i wouldn't pass by this one as well. so well seen, composed and exposed, it is indeed so mediterranean that i wouldn't ever guess this is from america! a meeting with Benedict sounds fantastic! he hasn't been active for ages, despite some recent uploads...

bella composizione, mi piace la scelta del taglio.
Mi piacciono le ombre che avvolgono i vasi e li rendono così sferici.

You have posted here beautiful colourful photo, excellent diagonal arrangement. Excellent close-up photo with very nice color contrast, perfect light, very good clarity. The well-chosen tight crop eliminates all unwanted distractions.
Very well done.

Good morning my dear friend
this is not a simple shot its the
greatest shot with beauty and delicacy
in my opinion the beauty is into the
simplicity a precised framed graphical
you are right that this has an air
thanks for sharing it with us

TFS and best regards

wirklich ein Spitzenfoto, wunderschöne Farben und Qualität!

You had me fooled too, I surely thought this was from Greece...until I saw the location listing, and was then a bit confused. :) Very typical association with the country, especially how you've composed and titled this to make that suggestion. Clever work my friend. ;) Amazingly sharp detail and texture, and that polariser sure enhances the richness of colors. Be it California or Greece, there's no denying the attractive result! I particularly enjoy the graphism of the steps and light, it's all come together rather nicely! Enjoy the new day. All the best.
Friendly wishes from the States,
I'll be working on my visa as soon as I return home this weekend, everything else is already in place...all I have to do now is wait. :))

very Greek indeed and I could be easily cheated if you try to pass this picture for some Dodekanisos island. The mix of white and blue somehow gets always associated with this country.
Well spotted and nicely delivered. The tight framing with focus on details makes the scene more interesting. The pots with red flowers work inhere very well as a attention drawing elements.
Great quality in all terms. TFS!
All the best

Greece is exactly what I thought too, what a beautiful scene, and very fine composition. This is a perfect example of how a great photographer can find a great scene in everyday life, that so many people likely pass by everyday. This is like a work of art. Thanks as always

siolaw (38292) 2014-05-18 23:21
There is definitely something Greek about this picture!
The framing and POV are excellent and a direct view of the textured walls. Bright colours look Greek too!
krzychu30 (15512) 2014-05-19 1:05
I could really easily believe this one was taken anywhere in Greece-the same look and feel.
Well considered and applied close-up and really wonderful color combination,which makes the scene so alive and pleasant.
Have a nice day
