    Ah I've been here too just two weeks ago. Where you on top of the church aswell? From the POV of this photo I do think so! Information for others: YOu can climb up the stairs to get on top of the church here! It offer a nice view..and is actually quite high, so it's kinda unique to be on top!
    Great sunset-time colours here. Very good composition with the roof and cross in the lower left corner and tower in the right. A slight improvement could have been to include the whole tower, now a bit has fallen off. The sharpness can be improved too. The rest if fine. Thanks for showing your capture.

    A nice capture of this scene as I have just recently seen and also photographed it (not in my uploads yet). The distinctive colours of the fences on the balconies can be admired well in this way. Good perspective! Natural contrast and also the contrast between the blue sky and white houses of the Kastro are nice!

    Hi Hercules,

    Nice high POV (I think) chosen here to overlook this whole street/alley in Folegandros Chora. The colours are nice and natural, well saturated and not too much. Very good contrast. I like the depth in the photo which you have well seen and captured, aswell as the wide angle. Guess what, I'm going to Folegandros too ;)

    Missed? You got most of the spectacle from it with this furious red sky, I believe! As a skyfreak, I love it ;) I like a lot the contrast between the grey clouds in top and the red 'fire' of the clods more below and in the distance. Also the foreground is well lit and contrasting with the sky aswell. HDR? I think so?!
    Anyway.. great tones and lovely colours! Hope I catch such a sunset when I'm there for just two sunset-evenings!

    Lovely photo with brilliant colours and lovely lights reflected on the water. Very well done, as we know you can do this so well! Clever composition with a lot of blue sky and the scenery placed in the bottom. The light clearly draws attention, it creates nice light on the scenery on the right of it, but I question myself weither the light itself might be a bit too distracting.

    You can be happy they have chosen all kinds of different colours for the lights there, it gives the photo a lot more colour than when they would all have featured the exact same colour. Well seen and captured. I'll see this scene at the end of June, I hope!

    Hmm an island I left with scars for life..

    I still want to go back there to captured both churches on each hilltop, we wanted to do that on our last day, but we fell with out scooter. I won't go back to Galissas though..

    Anyway, about your photo. Good catch with the ships' trail leading the eyes into the image, well chosen. Good colours, I like the light too. The horizon is well placed in my opinion.

    Bravo,

    Interesting graphical astistic photo. Well devided in two parts, in general white an blue, which matches Greece so well! Like the symmetric approach here aswell, well seen and captured. Good saturated colours and nice contrast. Bravo tfs.

    Hi Hercules,

    Guess who's back after a long time ;) Haha.

    Lovely photo with very very good contrast and composition. In fact I will go to Santorini soon (just for a few days, which might be unfortunately, but we will make the best of the two days) I hope to find this scene :-)

    I..will try to find the magazine you will be featured in and buy it!

    Hope your doing well, but seeing your photography, makes me think you are doing just fine!!

    Regards,
    Emiel.

    Lovely to see this in it's winterscene version! Different and nice. Like to see the myst/low clouds in the distance, they top off the image..as cherries on a pie, as we say here. Very good composition with the island in the corner. The panorama format works really well for such scenes. Bravo, see you soon my namesake!

    Lovely colours, very refreshing green tones and yellowish hues. Like the great high POV. Well composed, it might have been an idea though, to include the full house/building in the lower right corner, but I don't know what else would have come into your scene..maybe there was something distracting, so it might be the best choice anyway. Also like the myst that appears from between the hills. Lovely scene that I would like to see in the real world, haha!

    Lovely wide photo, panorama from this high POV.

    Will we see this soon?
    Looking forward to our trip..till soon!

    Great blue colours! Lovely night seen. Well composed with the foreground elements that nicely lead the eyes into the image.

    Sorry to hear. Our (late) condoleances. A long life so I understand from her age. Beautiful dedication. Sunsets, in my opinion, do very well for such situations as these. Great composition with this little religious icon in the lower corner and the beautiful rays of the sun coming from behind the clouds and the mountains in the distance. Very symbolic.

    A nice photo without critiques yet? :(
    Well..so I will be the first.

    Great details on this mill. Lovely light aswell.
    Two thing I think I would have done different are; placement of the mill on the left side of the scene, showing more of the landscape to the right. This, because of the..windmill "pointing" in that direction..that is why I would like to see it. Besides that the landscape there looks more interesting than the little wall in front on the left.
    Raising the contrast a bit too spice it up more. Otherwise, good placement of the mill in vertical direction. Hmm I don't think I can visit this one..this holiday. Else I could do a workshop..haha!

    Greetings to your family,
    Emiel.

    Ah this reflections-from-the-windmill-on-the-roof shows even more reflected details on the car. Not only the windmill itself, but also a nice Greek church and an accompanying bush. Well seen and captured. Some subtle colours in the sky make the topping on the cake.

    See you soon my friend!

    Hi Aimilios!

    Wow thanks! Indeed here we come! I was just looking here and on Google for some Sifnos photo's..and also from Kamares specifically, as the ferry arrives here. I found some dull not all to colourful photo's.
    (Example : http://media-cdn.tripadvisor.com/media/photo-s/01/01/b6/24/kamares-at-sunset.jpg )
    So glad I arrived at your special photo now. Thanks for the dedication! Great POV with a beautiful overview on Kamares (geesh I recognize it now allready, I still have to go there, haha!)
    I like the composition with the downsloping hills in the front coming up in front of the sea below.
    Nice blue colours in the sea.

    I'll try to find this point of view really soon!
    Till wednesday, warm Regards,
    Emiel & Linda.

    Lovely photo with gentle colours and different tones between white and grey/blue. Excellent simple composition, the simplicity gives this photo it's strength. Right lines and subtle curves and two crosses, well balanced. Thanks for sharing. Will see this scene in a few days I hope, I'm going to Sifnos in 4 days :-)

    Hi Aimilios,

    Lovely photo of this church in evening light. Very good composition, leaving a lot of sky, to balance the composition and not make it look all to busy (it is not busy at all) and lovely orange tones on the facade of the church. I would crop the thingy in the lower left corner out. Will see you wednesday! Looking forward
    Will see this scene soon aswell, Sifnos here we come!

    Nice photo of this church. I wonder what a more off centre composition with the church a bit more in the right upper corner would do. Having that said, I'm thus curious what is there to the left..wider view would be nice. About the rest; bravo, nice colours.
