The capture was taken at the same place as the previous post. The place is just amazing as everywhere you turn there’s something else to see and shoot. Just enjoy its serene beauty…

Have a good day wherever on the planet you may be :)

P.S.: I know there's a glare on the left but I thought I'd leave it as it is

Dedicated to my dear friend Dot.

Hi Argiris

great capture with a really "equilibrium" composition...
nice colors and the clouds are awesome.
the water is calm and reflects well the dark sky..


Very moody. Great sharpness.
TFS, Martin

The reflection is so perfectly represented here that you seem having two photos.
Great job,

HI Argiris
You definitely got another beauty.
Fabulous sky, a bit of mist, great sunlight and reflection.
Love the ropes with weeds entering the frame.
Just how lucky can you get? Guess who is jealous now?

Hello Argiris,

I knew this was yours before I checked the name! The composition, the light, the sharp focus and the amazing details are quite easy to see and quantify; what is much more difficult to explain is how you have achieved the mood, the effect, the WOW factor, all of which are present because of the skill of you, the photographer.

Kind regards,
Bev :-)

Hi Argiris,

what to say? It is awesome shot, very well worked out. Sky looks so dramatic...so surreal, like it is going to open up and let some divine creatures out. This EQUILIBRIUM is outstanding...

Wonderful composition and excellent reflections...like looking the image in the mirror, so clear and sharp.

Wonderful work dear friend...

Have a nice week,


Bonsoir Argiris

Excellent cliché, bravo!!!, Le reflet du bateau dans l'eau est parfait, il y a de la couleur avec le ponton a gauche, la mer lisse laisse place a de très bon reflets.

Excellent travail

Wooow Argiris
You're a master of light and colour; the colours and the shapes seems to shine in the dark atmospheres that you capture as few.
Superb work again, with an amazing cloudy sky, a fantastic reflection effect, and also fantastic sharpness, light and colours.
Wonderful work, a great mood, and a beautiful dedication to our friend Dot.

hi Argiris

I am beginning to hope that your series on this place will not end :) because it is really such a superb scenery and weather condition to give you such shots. What I like in this one is the sharpness you have delivered for the boats and reflection on water. Selective sharpen used?

Good work.

tfs, bill

Bonjour Argiris,

joli travail, sur cette composition, qui offre de magnifiques contrastes.
Le piqué de l'image est aussi excellent.

Le résultat est superbe.

Hi Argiris

A dramatic tonal range in the sky, with good sharpness, & a nice colour contrast, between the yellow tinted pier at left, & the overall blue tones. Good reflections. Tfs!

Kalimera my friend
Very nice work and wonderful place.Great shot.Regards.

Ciao Argiris, great perspective and fantastic reflections, wonderful composition, very well done, ciao Silvio

Bom dia Again
You became a wonderful painter. The harmonie is superb.

Good evening, Argiris!
Stunning view of this pier with awsome reflections. It almost looks like an oil-painting, I like this style for this type of compositions. The exposition of the dramatic sky is also impressive! Great job, my friend, congratulations! TFS.

dear Argiris,
the central ship is sandwiched between two heavens, one is on the sky and the other is on the reflection of the water,
both two are real heavens and then where is the hell?...
the eyes on the boat is serching it, but maybe it vanishes from the view.
then calm and quiet space is remaind in this picture.
that is the secret of this shot, in my feeling.
thank you,

Hi Argiris,
Perspective and depth are very well.
Good frame.
Wonderful light and colours, great contrast picture.

Superb shot again Argiris. Every time I look at some of your powerful photos I am stunned! Great, great work again!

Have a good WE!

un ciel superbe qui semble carrément écrasser le bateau et une composition de l'image plus qu'harmonieuse
mais il y a tant de gris que j'ai du mal à me croire en Grêce; plutôt carrément en Norvège!! (bon Ok un peu trop large pour un fjord)
mais où que cela soit ça me plait!

Bonjour Argiris.
Un poste traitement parfaitement contrôlé et sans trop d’effet qui a donné cette splandide image.
Les contrastes et le cadrage sont de toute beauté.
Bonne soirée.

Yassou Argiris,

The mood is indeed terrrrrific here ! Lovely sunset mood here. Quiet sea, Dark clouds, and one man at the end of the dock completes very well the composition.


Hi Argiris! Amazing Work. Everything is perfect. Best regards Csabi

Perfect composition, colours, sharpness, lights. A very beautiful photo. Bravo!!!

Wonderful colours and reflection here, unique original composition and pov.
