Waiting the coming ferry to departure from the island of Paros,i took a lot of shots with the most important to be this one, with the boat to passing by in front of the landing point,with the opposite part of the land to floodlight with the warm afternoon light.
The main port of Paroikia is for many, the first and only place they see in Paros. With as many as five ferries unloading in the space of half an hour your first impression can be that you want to get right back on the boat you just got off. But if you wait for the crowds to clear, you find that Parakia is not a bad place to base yourself.
The center of town is the windmill which used to serve as the tourist information center, but now serves only as a windmill. What the windmill does exactly, I am not sure, but the tourist police have moved across the street and if you want information on ferry boats there are at least half a dozen ticket agencies within fifty meters. Each agency posts the weekly schedules on boards in front and by looking at your options you realize that you can get just about anywhere from Paros. Don't book your ferry until you have gone by all the agencies and seen what is available in case some agents are just representing a particular ferry company and does not list the other boats.

Des couleurs bien saturées pour mettre en valeur les maisons étagées sur la colline et la présence du bâteau qui capte bien le regard.
Merci pour le partage et bonne journée.

όμορφη απογευματινή σκηνή από το λιμάνι της Πάρου λίγο πριν την αναχώρησή σου από εκεί.Η διερχόμενη βάρκα γεμίζει το κενό αν και είναι τοποθετημένη πολύ καλά στο πλαίσιο.Τα χρώματα και το φως είναι εξαιρετικά,
marina7 (8051) 2012-05-08 1:43
nice view of the island, this time it doesn't look so cluttered with the houses. They're scattered all over it more sparingly.:) The boat makes the scene alive. Thanks and have a nice day.
jmdias (53683) 2012-05-08 2:46
very beautiful the white houses covering the golden slope, the boat is perfectly positioned and adding life and movement to the image. beautiful light and framing.
krzychu30 (15354) 2012-05-08 3:00

dkmurphys (47802) 2012-05-08 3:17
Very beautiful horizontal composition. I like the buildings all over the hill and the deep blue of the water. Picturesque place.
jacquest (18439) 2012-05-08 4:17
The light in this image is just wonderful. The boat is well placed and the distance in the water gives deepness. I like the slope of the hill running from left to right with all thoses houses well perched. The sharpness is remarquable.

Ola Danos ,
Bom ponto de visão com esta colina de fundo cheia de casas espalhadas , gostei da sua linha em diagonal , bom primeiro plano neste porto com este barco a sair , boas cores e luz , parabéns!!
Um abraço Gonçalo
kato (11630) 2012-05-08 5:34
You're capturing well this landscape by a good composition, paroramic view and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see many houses with white wall standing on the hill and surrounding greenery. It's impressive to see the spectacle in which a ferry leaves a harbor, too. The whole is harmonized and balanced well by some objects(pier, sea and hill).
Have a nice day.
pierrefonds (55832) 2012-05-08 5:39
The distance between the boat and the coast is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the houses. There is a good contrast between the colors of the picture. Have a nice day.
Janusz1974 (2814) 2012-05-08 5:45
Beautiful composition with nice boat and lovely white houses.
Another beautiful image from Greek islands.

Geia sou Danos.
I see an historic Greek theater where the dwellings sit on tiers for the play of that floating and moving little house on blue stage!
ikeharel (54491) 2012-05-08 8:01
The afternoon light and shades made a nice view on the bay with the boat passing, Danos.
White houses on the hill's slop suggest great inteval between, to the benefit of the families living there.
eldancer1 (26272) 2012-05-08 8:45
Beautiful hillside village! Thanks for the info. Nicely captured with good pov and dof with sharp details. Excellent lighting and colors with good saturation. Well done, tfs.
ourania (28620) 2012-05-08 11:08
πολύ όμορφο κάδρο που, ξεκινώντας από τον προβλήτα δομεί μια εξαιρετική αίσθηση βάθους και παρουσιάζει με εντυπωσιακή διαύγεια το τοπίο δίπλα στη θάλασσα. Αποτύπωσες με μεγάλη ακρίβεια την ομορφιά και ζεστασιά του απογευματινού φωτός που δίνει χάρη σε ό,τι αγγίζει. Μου αρέσουν πάρα πολύ τα χρώματα και η ήρεμη ατόσφαιρα καθώς και ο τρόπος που παίζει το φως πάνω σε όλες τις επιφάνειες στην απέναντι πλαγιά. Μπράβο και ευχαριστώ!
Να είσαι καλά, καλό βράδυ,
josepmarin (57645) 2012-05-08 11:22
the light of the late afternoon bathes the hillside and makes to shine the white architecture of the houses, creating a few very nice shades.
The warm colors increase the quality of the image, and the boat adds a good dynamism to this nice scene, perfectly caught by means of a panoramic framing.
A beautiful composition, my friend.
maria-v1981 (10814) 2012-05-08 12:20
Όταν απολαμβάνεις τέτοια θέα πως γυρνάς πίσω? Η κυκλαδίτικη αρχιτεκτονική μου αρέσει πολύ γιατί είναι απλή και ξεκάθαρη. Επίσης η αντανάκλαση στο άσπρο χρώμα των σπιτιών θυμίζει Ελλάδα.
Πολύ όμορφη σύνθεση.
Να έχεις ένα καλό βράδυ,
mauro61 (52623) 2012-05-08 13:42
mi piace il taglio con le tante case bianche sparse sulla collina.
Ben ripresa la scena con il mare e l'imbarcazione in FG,
milad_abazari (1648) 2012-05-08 14:04
Composition is beautiful. Exposure well performed.

very good slim cut and framing, very nice warm light and vivid colors, beautiful white village, I like the presence of the boat in the composition that gives dynamism to the scene..have a good day...

Bonjour, cher ami Danos,
Très belle vue panoramique de Paros-Paroikia, le cadrage est parfait pour restituer la beauté d'ensemble.
Encore une image très réussie.
ChrisJ (95278) 2012-05-09 3:00
I like the wide angled, panoramic crop here. Good sharpness and the tour boat leaving the pier animates the shot. Superb sharpness & nice repetition of the hillside houses right across the screen up to the top right. The sidelight from the left adds relief, shape, & form to all subjects. Tfs!
PecoBud (3824) 2012-05-09 7:31
What a beautiful hillside landscape and all surrounded by a wonderful seascape. Wonderful contrasts and fine color saturation, with superb clarity and detail to light management. I love the format you've chosen and your POV is stunning. Great Job Danos!!
TFS...........Your Friend from California........Buddy

ciakgiak (30407) 2012-05-09 9:26
mi fanno molto pensare a Panarea, nelle isole Eolie, tutte queste casette disseminate per la collina, uno spettacolo molto gradevole da ammirare, giustamente completato dal passaggio del battello che crea un bel contrasto col mare blu cobalto.
Un caro saluto.
UlfE (14641) 2012-05-09 10:51
A wonderful panoramic view. I like your positioning of the boat to the left. The lighting is also very attractive and the depth is very impressive you see every detail both in the foreground and the background. TFS and have a nice evening!

TFS and best regards
tedesse (25047) 2012-05-09 18:18
Wonderful panoramic view.
Nice composition with the boat's in the foreground. Beautiful light, good sharpness, interesting colors.
abmdsudi (41466) 2012-05-09 20:59
Super shot of a lovely looking seaside village in rich colors. It captures a typical character and the clusters of bright white houses on the slope creating such good contrast to the general scene and the boat - u cough at the right spot- adds the important focal. A very attractive coastal scape and exciting slim crop ensure eyes are firmly held in and around this picture, wise decision Danos, I like it. Thnsk for sharing. Congrats. Have a great day.
delpeoples (52879) 2012-05-10 1:48
Kalimera dear Danos
Beautiful cobalt blues and natural tones. I like the panoramic cut and the sense of movement is very attractive.
Thanks for sharing, have a beautiful day
jemaflor (82314) 2012-05-10 4:10
Good panoramic format for this view, well balanced with the ferry and lovely light on the landscape and the bleu sea.

It's nice to dream that I'm on the boat that departs. The scenery is superb. The framing is clever. light and color, sharpness and depth, are excellent. Bravo.
Have a nice day
Kielia (23083) 2012-05-10 10:07
this image is a delight for everyone who loves the sea! You are presenting an interesting ferry at this beautiful place. Really a very well composed impression and a pleasant sight. My compliments!
Kitty_the_Wild (1169) 2012-05-10 12:55
A rich landscape, warm and pleasant, with its diagonal cut of the hill.
jusninasirun (17160) 2012-05-10 17:19
You have delivered another fine view of beautiful Greece. The choice of panoramic presentation is excellent with lovely details of the building on the hill. The boat in the fg is perfect on a fine day for great pictures.
Thanks and have a nice day.
lakshmip1949 (19110) 2012-05-10 18:16
A nice panoramic view of these white house on the hill. Nice white boat passing by. The blue color of the water makes a nice color contrast.
Waylim (25174) 2012-05-10 22:19
Very lovely panoramic view, the light is wonderful with rich warm tone. Must be nice to live just up the hill with beautiful view of the area. The hill is more brown than I expected, but it must be dry at times. Good quality photo as always.
jhm (136916) 2012-05-11 3:38
Wonderful panoramic image with the houses on the moutain slope
Excellent perspective and depth picture with the ferry as subject.
Very well composition, excellent captured, good presentation too. TFS.
Have a nice weekend,

Hello Danos. Yes, I imagine the Greek islands. Built hills, boats and blue sky. Who wants holidays, look no further. Great composition, light and colors. Well done. Rgds, Wolfgang.

Royaldevon (27843) 2012-05-11 15:18
My daughter is in Greece, at the moment. She is holidaying on Santorini.
Your panoramic shot is well composed with the hilside creating an upper triangle from the sky, and the sea, with its amazing colour, forming a horizontal layer in the f/g. The dof details the movement of the ferry and, also, the characteristic style of the houses.
The colours, as always say so much about the nature of Greece.
Have a lovely w/e,
Sonata11 (33209) 2012-05-11 19:49
I would wait, specially have the spectacular view in the front of my eyes. Impressively beautiful cityscape up to the hill. Wonderful compo and framework. Stunningly beautiful colors, sharpness, clarity, perfect POV and DOF also.
This panorama of this place looks spectacular. I love it. Thank you for your wonderful work.
All the best and have a nice WE,
siamesa (27735) 2012-05-13 2:53

the panoramic format fits the scene well and the inclusion of the pier in the foreground works well and gives depth
Good colors and sharp too
Angshu (55039) 2012-05-15 2:46
The light is excellent & the blue simply jumps out! The layers work well as does the pano format. The ferry & the anchor poimt on the shore balances each other well. A very nice composition & presentation
mkamionka (29810) 2012-05-16 10:06
beautiful composition. I like the presence of several layers here. Even the concrete in the foreground provides a nice extra layer. The boat is well placed asymmetrically in the frame. Very well seen and captured.
alpi1500 (1518) 2012-05-27 7:34
Nice composition and succesfuly management of the light.

Beautiful scenery, masterfully captured. I love the composition with the sea sandwiched between the pier and the opposite hill.
