[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is another post from A dinner cruise around Santorini.

I've been looking at some of the themes here on TL, and feel I have a few images which would fit in well with some of them. This one I'd like to add to "Old Versus New".
I prefer the old. especially in shots like this. Luckily for me the old was a lot slower than the new, which allowed me to get some good shots of the sunset with it.

I hope you like this post, and agree it should be added to the "Old Versus New" theme.

Have a great weekend, Thanks for looking.

Hi Alan,
Excellent shot again, well viewed and composed. You've got the sun just right in between them. Excellent work.

Hi Alan, beautiful shot, gret sunset... :) I like it, great colours and nicely composed. Very well captured, thanks for sharing. :)

I prefer the old as well. there is something mysterious (and don't I love mysteries) about these old ships. I can just imagine the tales old boats can tell. I like the colours and the sun between the 2 boats. Santorini is very high on my travel list.

Hi Alan,

Another fine photo from Oia, Santorini.
Very well captured! I agree with you all the way, it does fit the theme 'Old vs New'.
Well done :)

Hi Alan,
It was really nice to "discover" you in TL as well:) and what a great shot (as usual) The light is superb and so is the composition and the sharpness.



a nice sunset capture,the colors are amazing .and the two boats represents us a meeting:-)

Hi Alan,
Excellent shot, great light and color.. Fantastic view! Nice job

hi alan
superbes couleurs de coucher de soleil,de plus sur cette photo on a deux bateaux,l'un semble recent et l'autre sorti du siecle dernier(enfin avant dernier).bravo.

Splendid photo!! So well composed as I especially like the setting sun between the two boats. Gorgeous colors. Well done

Hi Alan,
New meets old indeed!
Clever composition with the vessels on each side of the sun but facing it...
Very well exposed and with great colours!
