Photographer's Note

Marina harbor, the extension of a new well developed part of Kalamata located at the south west side of the city near by the main harbor, not more than 5 min driving from the center of the city.

You will find cafes, Greek traditional restaurants, Italian food, near by the harbor and in the area.
Marina is a small paradise in the city.

You may find me there, as I frequently visit the place, after work, for relaxation or weekends, this picture is describing why.

A few notes for the shot:
Easy settings. Aperture Priority (AP) used, f/8 for a sharp result, and both shutter speed and ISO locked at 200. (EV/0 or EV-1/3)
Some of you may wonder, why didnít I use ISO 100 and 1/100 shutter speed.
The answer is really simple: Even low wind doesnít allow 1/100, so I needed a faster speed in order to freeze the boats and the waves in this one. The predictable movement of the boats, rear and above, plus the water confirmed that my calculations were promising. The noiseless ISO 200 didnít concern me at all. I just wanted a perfect shot.

A polarizer filter couldnít be missing in this shot, as most of the time I carry it on my lens during day time, since I love high contrast combined with sweet colors.

Post Processing Info:
- Raw mode @ Some Contrast, Saturation and Sharpen were increased only, then exported to TIFF and JPEG for my needs

The clarity that day was perfect
No effects were applied. You can say this photo is natural
