I liked the patriotic Greek national colors of blue and white here and the perspective leading to the old windmill. Taken in the backstreets of Oia, perched atop the craggy jagged remnants of the Santorini volcanic explosion around 3600 years ago.

It's remarkable that all the walls and the door look like they've been just painted. No stain can be detected. Also the street is spotless clean.
The blue and white - like on the national flag - is a wonderful fitting combination.
Excellent view upwards and great representation of the Cycladic architecture.
Best regards, Paul

La distance entre l'escalier et le moulin donne de la profondeur à l'image. La prise de vue permet d'apprécier les détails, les couleurs des maisons et du moulin. La bonne luminosité met en valeur les couleurs de l'image. Bonne soirée.

Jolie photo de Santorin. Bonne utilisation du polarisant qui t'a permis de bien maîtriser l'exposition toujours délicate de ces murs blancs. Bonne composition verticale.

regardless how many iconic pictures of Greece including white and blue buildings have been posted here they always draw an attention. Lovely contrast and very well handled light. I like the composition with the windmill being decidedly its highlight. Nice colors.

A lovely capture, beautiful sharp colours, Oia is a great place far more quieter and prettier than Fira.
A magical place to wander. TFS

un'isola della Grecia, famosa per la sua particolare architettura, colta con una bella inquadratura in uno degli angoli più caratteristici.
Una splendida contrapposizione di bianco e di azzurro rendono la composizione ancor più piacevole in un contesto di luminosità e nitidezza eccellenti.
Ciao e buona settimana

a shot that typifies Greece and is also full of iconic elements and colours that really sum up the beauty and ambience of this amazing little town. An enticing composition and flawless execution make this both attractive and appealing.
Have a great week - Brian.

The blue and white is something that I shall ever associate with Greece Chris. Here the pristine walls and blue paintwork gel perfectly with the cloudless sky. Iconic colours and architecture and a lovely shot. Warm regards rosemary

Always nice, the blue and white of Greece.
What I like here, is the coming back of the blue in the house, very nice !

I'll never get tired of such Greece scenes!
the stark whites, the bright blues, the funny looking windmill, so many things to attract us into the scene.
beautiful, classic, with warm light and colors.

A classic Greek post card with its famous blue and white. Love how they match the blue to the sky so perfeclty. I'm sure if there are clouds, it would be the same white :)
Excellent quality and you manage the strong light perfectly.
