Hi John, now we still are on Mykanos, that’s fine, but I have to correct you, the ship in the background, it is not the Norwegian Jewel; the ship in the background is one off the ferries to other islands around Mykanos. If this ship should be the Norwegian Jewel, it should have pasted a “ship converter”, its to small Mr. Tulip it got the size off on off Norwegian Jewel lifeboats.
Good d…. that I as a young man should have to correct you in this manner. You will have my apologies in advance, but it is not the Norwegian Jewel.
But never mind, the photo is fantastic, great colors, great sharpness, a wonderful photo off a part off Mykanos. My compliments and TFS.
By the way, the beer in the BAR was cool and tasteful.
All the best your friend

I love the composition with cruise ship as the BG and those wonderful colors. Lovely weather, is it mostly happen all the time?
Beautiful image my friend Belanda.

Thank you John for sharing the moment.


Excellent image. Just showed it to Diane and she wants to leave now. Excellent sharpness and details.

Very good image, nice place and colors fantastic.
Congratulation well done.

Hello Amadeus! I missed this when I uploaded, since I had to run right away. Thanks for your comments!
What happens here at hight tide? Very colorful photo, nice vacation. I missed all this while in Europe, and now I am way too far away....

Great juxtaposition John, the modern cruise ship in the background with the old buildings in the foreground. Great colours must be great to take photographs in good light.


Hi John!Wonnderful shot!Nice photo!Gret as usually!

WOW John
Colour/light mangement is brilliant in this beautiful image.
Sharpness is spot on. Fantastic view. Groet

Great challenge to shoot such a beautiful Sea-scape Johnny! Great POV and colours, read Jens here and not your Ship , hahaha We all drink a glas of wine now and than :-) Groetjes


Again some great colors here Sjonnie!
Lovely blue sky and white houses with colorful balconies.
I really like the way this image shows the decay of the houses around the waterline. Well seen...
A real nice composition; the contrast between the old houses and the "stand in" ship.


Stunning - metering, composition, sharpness, detail, saturation and subject, as (almost) always John. You SO know what you're doing that I almost feel redundant leaving a critique ...

Fantastic work, you're an inspiration.


Good morning, John.
Nice picture, it looks a bit 'Mykonos'to me.
Were you eyes focused on the signs 'BAR' , so you didn't regocnized you 'own' ship? hahaha
Its good Jens corrected you, otherwise you had taken the wrong boat en had je van de wal in het verkeerde ship kunnen komen.
Toch maar een 400 kopen, John.
Cioa, Jan

AHA Johnny, Now that is very unique view of Mykonos you presented here.

This is one superb photo...sharp, nice composition, colors and POV,and the ship in BG and that one guy standing there ...perfect. TFS

Smiles from Bloomington,

PS: Thank you for showing these wonderful photos, they are not just TRIP photos, and lots of fun to see.

Marvellous view ! Colours are so great with reflection of the sun, sky so blue .... as Diane i would leave instantly :o) TFS

The Greek Isles. I've always wanted to visit but my list is so long and it's going to slow. Sometimes I wonder if I'll ever get there. Those blues are stunning. Nice compo. Nice ship/ ferry whatever it will take you places.

Hi John,
Very colourful photo. The ship somehow spoils it for me, because it leads my eyes away from the houses. Great one all the same.

Hi John,
What a wonderful way to show off Mykanos...a photo with fantastic colors, composition and clarity, thanks for sharing,

Hallo Wolfgang Amadeus,
Again you succeeded to make our day a bit brighter - and we need it, too cold and too wet, but then there are sunny pictures like this one you are sharing with us.
Het is wel gelukt hoor; we voelen ons allemaal jaloers.
Groetjes en tfs

Hello Sir John,

Beauty of vintage architecture is aesthecially composed in this magnificient shot. Dominating blue and white tones are nicely depicting comtemporary greek touristical atmosphere. Beautiful view my friend, well done.

Very nice composition, John, catching the Jewel in the background. What a breath-taking trip; thanks for sharing with us.
Great sharpness and colors stark against the white buildings, and what a perfect sky--is there ever a cloud in that part of the world?
Best regards,

A very popular place very well composed from you. I like the tigh framing and the fine colors. Well done.

SIR John !
Wow- the vibrant colors, sharpness and presentation of this posting make this such a delight to look at. Thanks so much for all your FINE postings. Julie

Beautiful compo and colors, those colorful houses are extremely picturesque and I like this combination of white, blue (as blue as the sky) and red and the silver sea.



Ok every one has said so much, but for me, your color caliberation is so good (white balance)....
and just as a side kick, excellent framing to include the oceanliner in far backgrouns!

Hi John,
I missed a lot of great postings during last week! Like this one! The colors of greece are amazing! What beautiful light and pure blue and white! This composition is so efficient here. I like the repetitive angle of building and balconies. The red touch makes a good counterpoint at blue and white colors. Very well done! Annie

Hi John,

Lovely shot! Very good POV and composition. The colors are vivid, lighting is excellent and the sharpness and detail great.
Greetings my friend,

Hi John!
Super Bild mit toller Tiefe,schönen Farben und gutem Kontrast!

Very sharp shot here, John. Good depth adnice blue and white colours too. Well done.



Hi John,
now this one here, what I like about it are the strong rich contrasts and the sharp colours.
Very good contrast with the whites against the blues - and the mass of the building against the rich cerulean blue sky.
Nicely captured.

Best regards, Daniel

Great shot... the colors are nice. Interesting architecture!
