Great holmertz 2014-01-17 10:48

Hello Ourania,
This photo has been here for three hours and has been seen by 93 people before me, but has received 0 points. What are people up to these days? It's a lovely street shot with two nice girls in colourful clothes occupying the foreground and the old woman, traditionally dressed in black, just about to walk out of the picture. We can see this very symbolically or just enjoy the composition. The Acropolis serves as a superb background and leaves us in no doubt where this was taken.
It's a beautiful photo with such good light and colours. You managed to combine cleverness with sheer luck. I think that is the secret of most good street-photos.
Kind regards,

Default To holmertz: Hello Gert

Hello dear Gert,
thank you very much! I think that the drawbacks of this photo are too evident in the thumbnail, the sky is blown to a great degree and the colours aren't very vivid. Maybe when one has a closer look, it seems melancholic too...
As I mentioned in my note, I felt very lucky to have run into a scene like this and to have managed to capture it. It means a lot to me and I don't mind if other viewers don't share this opinion. On the contrary, I appreciate people's being honest and not writing a comment for a picture they don't really like
Thank you so much again!
All the best,
