During a night stroll at Artemonas village,i stayed there some days of my sort vacations,i saw and this exterior courtyard with everything,doors and windows,to are closed
Fortunately none of the owners was there so i shot some photos with the lot of elements to have been enhanced me.
Two jars like guards in the main door,lot of chairs and two tables with the school desk to attract my arttension.
I used an ISO 800 and a 1/6 shutter speed because of i had not with me a tripod or a monopod.
I hope you like it.

Dobra kompozicija, perspektiva i kontrast.
Lepo mesto za odmor u tisini noci.

Nice place in the night ...
Good shot, nice place indicated in the night, beautiful colors.
Good composition, perspective, and contrast.
Nice place to rest in silence of the night.

geia sou dano. this is so aegean, what a beautiful house with flowers and a charming design of place. maybe you did that too, i would be tempted to take the photo directly opposite to the façade, but this diagonal view also has a good perspective. it is a smart idea to put "danos 14" behind the chair, it is similar to old painters signing their names in hidden places of their pictures.

a beautiful photo of this place with splendid composition and attractive details, great mediterranean lights and the POV is excellent,

Quelle charmante petite cour intérieure. Tas as su bien maîtriser la lumière dans cette scène nocturne. J'aime beaucoup les belles fleurs qui jouent à la vedette dans cette composition.
dkmurphys (48030) 2014-01-07 6:15
Indeed, it is very charming. I like the atmosphere, lovely place.
John_F_Kennedy (42062) 2014-01-07 6:35
A fine capture of this interesting building. Nice night shot
Royaldevon (28243) 2014-01-07 8:10
I'm sure that this scene would have attracted me, too. The blossom laden trees act as colourful boundaries, keeping attention inside the warm coloured patio with its welcoming chairs and guardian pots.
A well executed night shot, especially without use of a tripod!
My warm regards,
abmdsudi (41936) 2014-01-07 9:56
Beautiful sense of perspective and very nicely composed and framed too with lots of attractive elements bundled in; the trees are like an invitation yet do not in any way distract from an appreciation of the simple building and its fine detail. Clarity is handled competently and lovely warm colours as well, i think the shadow of the mystery fig adds bit of life to the shot. Well done, Congrats
Fis2 (83798) 2014-01-07 10:22
Good frame and perspective.
Super light and colors.
I like the shadow of the photographer ;)
Gigidusud (14573) 2014-01-07 13:47
Très bon point de vue sur cette jolie petite court bien cadrée par les fleurs. Une bonne gestion de la lumière, on aperçoit même l'ombre du photographe sur le muret :)
Meilleurs vœux pour 2014!
pierrefonds (56034) 2014-01-07 17:20
The trees are framing well the courtyard. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the courtyard. The colors of the walls are contrasting well with the other colors. Have a nice day.
imageme (1625) 2014-01-07 17:40
Hi Danos, Wonderful night shot of this courtyard with great sharpness and nice lights. You have a steady hand to avoid camera shake at such low shutter speed. Great details with such long exposure. Awesome composed image with great angles. Thank for sharing
jcpix (13286) 2014-01-07 18:39
Hey neighbor, good to have you along side today! Well, I guess it's now a day later for you...but still, you understand! :) Always great when you can come across something unexpected, something like this from an evening stroll that might not have otherwise been seen. An pleasant surprise, and a very well captured photo, especially considering it being hand held, low light, and high ISO...this turned out great. Plus, you were even able to include yourself in the picture. Bonus. :) The black sky really helps bring out the colors in contrast, a smart observation and strong result. Have a great day ahead.
mcmtanyel (11989) 2014-01-07 21:50
Yes, a very charming courtyard with your very own chair (LOL). A very nice night photograph; although the Photo Information reports the use of a flash, I do not see any ill-effects from it - well done!
krzychu30 (15440) 2014-01-08 0:23
beautiful patio,which invites us to spend some time there.
Also your presentation is superb!The way you composed the scene as well as so outstanding quality of the image make your shot magnificent!
The picture has its own,unique charm you were able to capture and convey here perfectly.
Have a nice day
mohammad_H (9067) 2014-01-08 1:01
Eye-catching and lovely
And the right angle to capture attractive
Best wishes to you
Subhogen (4065) 2014-01-08 1:01
A brilliant idea to reserve a chair for yourself in this beautiful house I like it a lot :-)). Very beautiful villa well captured by your lens with great clarity and colors. The bright colors on both side of the frame add so much warmth to the composition. Your faint shadow is perfect to add a bit of mystery to the mood. Thanks for sharing.
subhendu_bagchi (25495) 2014-01-08 2:38
here you presented a nice and charming courtyard with nice light and interesting colours. Nice night capture. Superb shot. Tfs.
Noel_Byrne (22643) 2014-01-08 5:17
This is indeed a beautiful courtyard, and congratulations for capturing this so crystal clear with pinshapr clarity! I guess it was handheld from the shadow :) Wondeful colors throughout too.
Brilliant idea to have put your watermark where it is, it makes it look like you are the director on a film set!
All the best
cornejo (29915) 2014-01-08 5:21
Hello Danos, excellent photography of this beautiful and interesting composition with this interesting perspective view of the courtyard, beautifully captured in this beautiful image with good sharpness, nice color and light. Excellent and interesting job well done, congratulations my friend. Thanks for sharing this beautiful work.
Good afternoon and happy rest of the week.
Warm greetings from southern Spain.
adramad (36853) 2014-01-08 6:44
A superb and beautiful composition, fantastic it is clear that the whole scene at night, can see each element of this beautiful patio, with nice furniture and the beauty of the two flowering shrubs, very strategic place to put your signature. ...
Good brightness and sharpness, with a nice range of colors.
Well done. I love it.
Have a good day.
ikeharel (55094) 2014-01-08 7:32
A charming front-porch, modern styled yet with a beautiful tree on side's.
I can comprehend the reason why taken this: it bares your name on the sign(or maybe almost?). Well done by hand-held picture, fine clear shot with no movement at all.
ourania (29201) 2014-01-08 8:21
χρησιμοποίησες τον υπάρχοντα τεχνητό φωτισμό με εξαιρετικό τρόπο και έφτιαξες μια πολύ ενδιαφέρουσα εικόνα με άριστη ευκρίνεια και βάθος. Μου αρέσει πολύ ο ρόλος που παίζει στην παρουσίαση το μήκος αυτής της όμορφης και γραφικής πρόσοψης. Οι τονισμένες προοπτικές είναι πολύ ελκυστικές, οι λεμπτομέρειες και τα χρώματα δημιουργούν ένα πραγματικά ευχάριστο σκηνικό. Η σκιά σου πάνω στον τοίχο είναι μια ωραία έκπληξη. Συγχαρητήρια και ευχαριστώ!
Να είσαι καλά, καλό σου βράδυ,
Graal (96342) 2014-01-08 10:23
nice calm place in village. I like the blooming trees and architecture. Good quality on ISO 800. Photo I like.
Have a nice evening.
clic (14710) 2014-01-08 10:27
Geia sou Danos
Don't worry about the tripod, it was not necessary because both of your shadow and yourself could hold firmly the EOS 5 for this appealing night shot adorned of splendid trees at both ends!
What a romantic place to sip Ouzo while listening to Nana Mouskouri's 'The White Rose of Athens'!
boa (5939) 2014-01-08 12:01
exactly a place like this should be wonderful to stay at during holiday. I can imagine to sitting at the terrace and sipping retzina in the evenings:)
Crisp and clear shot with excellent light and colors, well done!
Have a nice evening/
siamesa (27737) 2014-01-08 15:32
Boa noite Danos
Lovely country house. Beautiful tree in the right side.
I really love this kind of houses.
jmdias (53975) 2014-01-08 15:42
marvelous use of the light here. the contrast between the colors is amazing and I liked these flowers under a nocturne view. I would like to remove your shadow using a PP. anyway a very beautiful image, not usual.
kato (11630) 2014-01-08 19:23
You're capturing well this place by a good angle and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the stylish/smart building, its courtyard with jar, table, chair and big tree in blue hour. It looks like the restaurant. The whole is harmonized well by a good arrangement and beautiful color combination.
fabbs99 (16151) 2014-01-08 19:26
This is a cool shot of the charming courtyard in flash lights.Very nice saturated colors and perfect sharpness.Excellent composition, good presentation too. Very well done, TFS.
claudeD (31671) 2014-01-09 1:03
you are right. This is really a charmy courtyard. Excelent night shot with a perfect light managment.Very good contribution to TE. TFS.
With regards from Luxembourg
papagolf21 (84558) 2014-01-09 1:21
Bonjour, cher ami Danos,
Encore un lieu bénéficiant d'un charme évident. De plus, la lumière est parfaite pour magnifier l'ensemble.
Un pur régal, une fois encore.
aliabazari (14031) 2014-01-09 6:56
Hi Danos Dear Friend
Beautiful and relaxing atmosphere. Exposure and composition, well done. Thanks for sharing.
Miguel82 (22197) 2014-01-09 9:18
A charming house courtyard Danos, hibiscus and bougainvillea flowers, nice architecture view, perfect sharpness, a brillant night capture with good light management, warm regards
Cricri (104209) 2014-01-09 11:00
Un endroit plein de charme, l'arbre aux fleurs rouges est vraiment magnifique, bonne prise des éclairages, des détails comme ton prénom et ton ombre :-) belle réalisation
tedesse (25055) 2014-01-09 12:15
Fantastic night picture! Good sharpness and colors.
geoant68 (331) 2014-01-09 23:11
εξαιρετική η νυκτερινή λήψη της αυλής με το φλάς να κάνει το θαύμα του,φωτίζοντας την προσεγμένη 'γωνιά' του σπιτιού.Η γωνία λήψης δίνει τρισδιάστατη προοπτική στο σκηνικό,κάνοντάς την μια ζωγραφιά,
Kamilutka (8095) 2014-01-10 4:05
indeed very charming courtyard and you wree very lucky to be able to take of photo of it in the absence of the owners. It looks very personal with your name on it and also your shadow. Good angle and colors as well as light.
All the best!
josepmarin (57689) 2014-01-10 4:53
your shade on the small wall of this courtyard says to us you take this photo handheld, and I must say you have reached a great result, the image is sharp though you do not use a tripod.
The elements that you have caught in this framing are very nice to see, as the beautiful flowers, both jars at the main door, and the tables and chairs.
The simple white architecture of these islands is fantastic.
And, finally, your signature on the chair is a great idea.
A splendid work, my friend.
marina7 (8053) 2014-01-10 9:07
now that's a luxurious pink tree out there! I can see myself sitting under it:))
Lovely evening photo with lots of charm and inviting atmosphere.
Thanks and have a great weekend!
mkamionka (30066) 2014-01-11 13:31
very charming courtyard indeed. Everything seems to be so well thought through here. I like the blooming plants on both sides with flowers in different color. Nice diagonals contribute to interesting geometry.
manrezaei (1837) 2014-01-13 9:48
Excellent shot. Very vivid colors, nice framing and excellent composition.
Very well done.
COSTANTINO (53525) 2014-01-14 22:28
Good morning my friend
lovely yard roman tic for romantic people
as we are shot that reminds of summer
holidays perfect exposure and great
it is very charming and I like
Angshu (55243) 2014-01-17 1:22
Good exposure and nice elegance in this diagonal shot which increases the depth. The flowers on either side of the frame makes a lovely scene and the jars also look good beside the door
nikkitta (14274) 2014-01-17 12:41
Very charming capture of a nice, inviting place filled with symmetries with the flowers at the sides
The more I like are the personal touchs like your shadow ( like a gosh) and the place of your signature (like a cinema director)
mirosu (13089) 2014-01-19 18:02
Excellent night photo take from very good POV. the lighting is perfect and the diagonal arrangement superb.
Nice place for good dinner or glass of red Greek vine.
Wish you a very nice week ahead.
Kielia (23225) 2014-01-20 5:14
excellent light brings out the colors and contrasts in this cozy scene. The courtyard makes a great subject and your chair is extra special. My compliments!
Didi (55943) 2014-01-23 3:03
Interesting lateral perspective
Your house looks pretty :)
Interesting place for having a good diner

Δάνο, να που κατάφερες και μ'εφερες πίσω παρ' ολη τήν δουλειά πού εχω...και καλά έκανες γιατι αυτη σου η εικόνα μου θυμίζει τίς διακοπές μου πρίν απο δέκα χρόνια στην ομορφη Σίφνο..ομορφη ωρα αυτη με το γλυκό φως να κάνει αντίθεση στο σκοτάδι και μια αυλή που θάθελα πολύ να είμαι εκεί τώρα...
καλη σου νύχτα και σ' ευχαριστω
