A scene in a street of Plaka opposite the Acropolis of Athens and the Tower of the Winds. Plaka is a beautiful historic district at the foot of the Acropolis.
First I noticed with the corner of my eye the equipment, then the people and then the architecture in the background. I took the picture while talking with a friend and almost walking as I didn't want the people to be aware of me or move from their positions. My next upload will be the scenery opposite this scene.
Perhaps the photographer is someone we know:)
Thank you for visiting, a lovely weekend to all

The Acropolis draw attention from photographers from every angel, and eagerly waiting to see your next post.
Fine moment taken as the camera was mounted on the tripod, to make best shot over.
The young lady sit and SMS - a view seen all over the world nowadays.
Enjoy a nice weekend,

A pleasant daily life capture featuring these three tourists. They make an interesting juxtaposition with each other roughly in the form of a triangle. The image is agreeably lit and has very good colours and clarity.

Ah, the photographer photographed!
This fellow looks as though he takes his photography seriously - so he could well be a TE member! But I note that you took this picture a month ago and I don't see any pictures on TE from the last month which would be taken from here!
This is a very well composed shot, the photographer and his friends perfectly placed in the frame with quite interesting though plain architecture behind them. But the line of the kerb and the ornate balcony above them lead the eye well into the picture.
Lovely light and colours, perfect exposure and exquisite details and sharpness.

Good sharpness and a nice catch of the photographers setting up for a shoot. The warm colors work well here and the long side shadows from the left add interest and relief. Good repetition of the 3 grey vertical doors in the bg. Tfs!

A well composed picture with an interesting story to match where the focus is on the shutter bugs but the eye is naturally led to the old building fonts displaying the quieter side of the street which conveys the sense of place perfectly. Excellent candid with good comp, color, & clarity and an honest capture. Congrats.

ho la fortuna di girare ogni giorno in tutte le famose città della Toscana e vedo ogni giorno decine di turisti che scattano foto a Firenze o Siena e mi sono chiesto spesso se qualcuno di questi era un menbro TE.
Bella questa scena, anche se lo scatto è stato "rubato" è ben fatto, ogni cosa al posto giusto.

And there but for the direction of the camera go we :) It is nice to see the artists at work, as they strive to create their own masterpieces, and you have presented them against a very pleasing backdrop. Really great capture, and incredibly clear considering the circumstances you took this under. Nicely done!

Une scène très intéressante bien cadrée
Le photographe n'a pas besoin de tripode compte tenu de la bonne luminosité ambiante :)

Γεια σου Ourania Αγαπητέ φίλε
Αγαπώ τον φωτογράφο και τους επισκέπτες. Στο βάθος είναι πολύ όμορφη και ελκυστική αρχιτεκτονική. Πολύ καλός μου φίλος.
bayno (18344) 2013-06-10 10:56
Ciao Ourania, non ho riconosciuto i fotografi nostri colleghi ;) la compo è comunque molto bella, ottimamente inquadrata e bilanciata con bella luce e ombre lunghe, anche le tonalità in BG sono piacevoli, eccellente lo sharp ....buona serata...

Ciao Ourania, gran bella cattura dell'attrezzatissimo fotografo, sempre bello vedere colleghi in azione, ottima nitidezza e magnifica luce, brava, ciao Silvio

The building is very interesting indeed and the shot is very nice with the people in foreground. Was the one in background also a photographer? He was looking at you really seriously:)!
A nice scene, with a beautiful soft light!
ciakgiak (30433) 2013-06-11 7:04
sempre molto attraenti queste scene di vita quotidiana che grazie a "noi" rivivono su queste pagine e si consegnano alla storia :) Complimenti!

I would probably have tried to take something similar if I had been here. I am always fascinated by people doing things in the street, whether taking photographs themselves or selling oranges doesn't really matter. I love to try to combine people, background colours and details of the street, and you have done all this excellently here. The three persons have unintentionally placed themselves very nicely in a triangle, the pink teeshirt is an eye-catcher just as strong as the heavy camera equipment and the light is wonderful.

Καλό σου απόγευμα

Haven't seen this capture, a very descriptive one, it shows how photographers works, bur your quick shot is a good one, colors, contrast and sharpness
Like this way to stole photos and people not noticing
Well done, congrats
