Photographer's Note

Agios Nikolaos is located in eastern Messinia prefecture, in famous Mani region, almost 45km away from Kalamata.

More info you will find here.

A daily shot can also be viewed here.

About the shot:
Almost evening. Trying to catch another blue hour.
the POV and the colours were perfect you just couldn't miss!
Unfortunately I was unprepared, as I had no tripod with me for this one so I played manually at 1/60 shutter speed lowest f/3.5 for exposure (which was also convenient as I wanted a shallow depth of field (DOF) even at 18mm), and ISO 800 handheld :(
However I managed to take a result very similar to the one under perfect conditions.

Post Processing Notes:
The good news:
I shot RAW+JPEG simultaneously, so I can squeeze even the last pixel from the shot.
The other good news: I managed to remove the chromatic noise, which gives me the creeps!. The rest of the noise was also reduced, but not completely (sometimes noise gives a better texture, and this shot needed it)

Some saturation and contrast levels were slightly adjusted.

Sharpen tool was also applied, to tone the small boats better, and a picture frame with a name on it was also added for the final touch.

I hope you like it
