Hi TL Romeo’s & Juliet’s

What more could a couple ask for than sailing into a beautiful sunset! I guess that’s what the young couple in the foreground was probably thinking! You too can enjoy this experience on the beautiful Island of Santorini! Bookings at the Hellenic Tourist Office, tell them I sent you! That way I get my commission..lol.. (^_^)

Enjoy & have a great Weekend!

He man this picture brings back good memories when I visited this very special vulcanic island. You have some very nice details in this photo. The pink sun, the ship and the 'Romeo & Juliet' in one perfect vertical line! Secondly a good dioganal from the flying Greek flag up to the mill. Superb orange glow over the whole shot. A magnificent posting my friend!

Thanks for sharing


That's a very unique color in the sun Constantinos. Great mood in this one.

Hi Constantino,
Great photo!
Wonderful composition...
Best Regards,

I would love to have such a souvenir shot with Martine on such a lovely Background (^_^).

I love it this way, even with the Greek Flag. Perhaps it is not really required to recognized the location (^_^). But is is not disturbing IMHO.

That being said the Workshop from Vlad is quite interesing too .

Keep on the god work !

Lovely tones Constantinos. A well detailed image, I see the Greek version of the windmill there and a flag I see waved at Melbourne soccer matches. Well presented mate and TFS,

Many thanks for your comment on ‘Underwater Patterns IV’

Hi Constantinos,
This a really an awesome photo. The lighting is so beautiful. The perfect setting for a romantic sunset. Great work on the composition, where the mill is positioned perfectly. I like the way the flag and couple lead to the boat and onward to the sun.

:) later

Everything fell in the right place here ... the flag, a couple looking at the sunset and the ship slowly moving across the water. Good marketing "flier" supported by a well thought romantic theme. :)

Have a great time in NYC. Too bad, you can't come to Washington.

Hi Constantinos,

a perfect shot with amazing atmosphere....love this square format and colours....wow, well done!

Take care, Ivana

Parfaite et merveilleuse composition

Hi Constantinos!Beautiful photo!Good job!

hi Constantinos!
A very beautiful image here.
The POV is fantastic.
Mood is very evocative and powerful.

Well done!!
Best regards,

Hello Constantinos!
Really great colours in your composition and beautiful light!
Nice clarity and good perspective!
Excellent done!

Ah yes, this is rather pleasing to the eyes... I can't wait to go to Greece in the Spring of 2008, perhaps I shall fall sublimely inlove with a nice Greek boy and never return to Canada... haha, eek just kidding.

I love these kinds of compositions, the colours... the vague silhouettes and the stories that could exist. The pink sun looks great the way it's set in the mix of orange... and good timing in catching the flag in a good position. Beautiful catch Constantinos... simple as that!
