Athens is quite enjoyable in the evening in some civilized areas, if you stay away from Omonia and Monasteriki squares where people do drugs, sell drugs and all kind of forbidden things...There are huge contrasts between some areas and streets in Athens, it's like different worlds collide.

Bonjour, cher Daniel,
Une composition très réussie haute en couleur et en détails.
En prime, nous avons le droit à l'heure bleue.

Avec le temple au sommet quelle vue ces branche des gros arbres ces personnage dans la rue cet éclairage quelle vue avec l’animation splendide.
Bravo et amitié

Hello Daniel,

This is lovely, how you have combined the modern elements of motorbikes and tavernas and people on a night out, with the iconic, illuminated ruins, high on a hill, in the b/g. The trees make attractive, natural borders.

My warm regards,
Bev :-)

Hello Daniel,
A nice view from what I suppose is one of the safe areas of the city. The Parthenon is very nicely illuminated and the two persons walking towards us are well placed to make the view lively and to create a feeling of depth. It's a well exposed photo from the blue hour.

ciao Daniel,
splendid view whit the Partenone in background, very good the use of the lights.
a good job,
ciao, Giacomo

Hi Daniel
A vibrant night capture and nothing will deter these couple from a night out enjoying the cold!! The glowing colours and light of the street brings this shot to life. Intriguing and very good. Excellent shot with good touch of motion effect, Congrats
Best wishes

Bonjour Daniel,

J'aimerais bien aller passer une soirée en Grèce en ce moment. L'ambiance de cette rue est magique surtout avec ce qu'il y a au sommet de la montagne en arrière plan.

Hi Daniel,
Such vibrant lighting in this well composed shot. The colors are wonderful and the ruins overlooking the street make it all very special.

Such a quiet little street with a view of the Acropolis, away from the tourist crowds, very nice night photo
regards Ryszard

This looks familiar alley to me, Daniel, I think we walked here on our way back from the Theatre of Dionysos, through the Plaka quarter.
A marvelous evening scene, lights and colors, bravo.

Ciao Daniel
una vista notturna molto singolare, senza la parte superiore poteva essere una qualsiasi città, ma in questo caso non ci sono dubbi.

Ciao Daniel, fascinating nocturne shoot, good exposure, excellent perspective, splendid light and wonderful colors very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Hello Daniel

The mighty Parthenon and a half hidden Mythos sign...two very different symbols of Greece (although I prefer Fix :-))

Superb deep blue tone in the sky. The movement blur of the walkers is OK here too.


Fine urban scene and very good composition. The sight of Acropolis in background makes the photo.

Hello Daniel,
An excellent blue hour shot of Athens with the Acropolis emerging under the golden leaves.
A quite original presentation of the Acropolis.
I know what you mean with Omonia. But that district has not always been that way. I was in Athens also in the late 70s and the early 80s and Omonia was a pleasant neighbourhood. It was a shock when I returned there twenty years later.
Best regards, Paul
