[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The railway station in Volos built by de Chirico is a real architectural treasure, together with the stations in Lechonia and Agria. However, the best is the old junk yard corner where you can see the history of this modern Greek culture rusting away without anybody caring to preserve this national treasure. Here’s some oldies that I sneaked into the place to photograph as there’s this weird mentality about not allowing to photograph anything in some cases. I hope that someone some day will built a museum or at least a shed to protect them until they do something about it.

This is dedicated to all railway fans of the world

Thanks for stopping by………..

Hi Argiris,
Very interesting photo! I like this mix of blur and sharpness. Excellent DOF and good use of the light.

Hello Argiris
Great pov looking down at the locos. I think the blured effect works very well here, it leads the eye to the main detail and avoids any distractions. It is ashame these great machines are kept secret - but at least they are secure too.
Regards, Leslie

Ως Fan του σιδηρόδρομου σε ευχαριστώ!
Συμμερίζομαι τις απόψεις σου περι σιδηροδρομικού μουσείου.

Η φωτογραφία μου αρέσει πολύ. Η γωνία ειναι εκπληκτική. Τα χρωματα (αν και η σκουριά σε αυτα τα οχηματα με θλίβει) είναι υπέροχα. Και το εφέ τεριάζει στην ξεχασμένη ιστορία μας.


kalimera my friend argiris

HI Argiris
Your trip into antiques is taking us back into time again.
Your shot sends a feeling of sturdiness and security.
Well done

Γεια σου Αργύρη,
Πολύ όμορφα τα παλαιά τρένα και με πολύ καλή παρουσίαση χρησιμοποιώντας το φίλτρο diffuser ώστε να δόσεις και την αρμόζουσα ατμόσφαιρα νοσταλγίας.
Καλή σου νύχτα, Βασίλης.

Hello Argiris.
Its a shame that they don't maintain those old beauties.
Did you captured is through a window ? Pity...

Hello Argiris,
fantastic subject with warm colors and excellent POV.
The notes are very interesting and it's pity that no one protect this old trains.
I like different focus between different elements.
A dear embrace my friend.

Wonderful and interesting work.
Lovely colours and light.

dear Argiris,
all old SLs must be preserved in museums and parks,
or at least some of typical SLs must be done...
in Japan, rather numbers of SLs are preserved and exhibited, and children can play with them at museums and parks.
anyway very joyful and picturesque shot this is,
thank you for your dreamy image,

Hi Argiris,

I like this kind of shot. Very well focused and capitalized the light very well. TFS and best regards,

Yassou Argiris!

Interesting presentation giving the focus on a few important elements only . The imgae is therefore much more powerful.

I might have cleaned a few clue dots for a cleaner composition. Oversharpening of what seems to me birds souvenirs (^_^).

A lovely composition in any case .

Ciao my friend Argiris

I like this composition, it is easy
natural colors and details and looking at the other
pictures of train stations are a delight.
like the simplicity here Argir
A clean shot, beautiful and harmonious


Αργύρη καλησπέρα
μιά φωτό σου στο όριο να νομίζεις ότι απεικονίζει παιχνίδια,
στο όριο επεξεργασίας που της δίνει μιά ονειρική υφή,
ένα αποτέλεσμα ιδίαίτερο,
με ξενίζει ευχάριστα και μου αρέσει
καλή συνέχεια

Hi Argiris,
interesting selective-focus PP effect :-))
Nice object placement within frame. Best regards, Daniel
