Une belle image nocturne avec une lumière bien maitrisée et l'eau qui a des reflets argentés.
Merci pour le partage et bonne soirée.

notturno con luci molto ben gestite.
Mi piacciono i riflessi delle luci nell'acqua del mare che sembra di vetro.

This is a fine night shot. The streaks in the water leads the eye into the scene nicely. The contrast between the brightly lit facades and the shadowed backgrounds is outstanding.

Pretty little town well caught in this night shot, with a metallic feeling on the water

Good evening Georgios,
this night sight of Gytheion is very fine and with a charming atmosphere. I like both the colours of the houses and the reflections on the water. However I prefer the one in the ws: there is a better sense of depth and perspective and it's more sharp.
You didn't say if you used a tripod and I couldn't find the time of exposure (it says 0) so I cannot understand it's a bit blurred. Perhaps it was taken at free hand?

Good pov and light effect on the water, just not enough sharpness ...

nice One Georgios.
the atmosphere is very good, It's not an easy shot with the movement and speed, but I like the good job you did. have a good day.

Superb reflections on the water with good colour & sharpness in this splendid nocturnal shot. Wonderful repetition of the tightly packed buildings along the waterfront, with excellent perspective. Tfs!

If one may listen to the pic - may hear the Buzuki sounds coming out from the tavernas.
