[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Back to homeland, after a long trip around the world with the photos that i have captured, to celebrate my 3 years on TE with 300 uploaded photos, 200 of them from Greece.

During these 3 years at the site, I saw and knew a lot of friends other professionals and other amateurs, but all with common denominator their love for the photography.Thanks all of you for the travelling all around the world,even and mentally, the 32264 points that you gave me, as for the kind criticisms, and the useful remarks.

Marathokampos Bay.

Marathokampos Bay(Όρμος Μαραθόκαμπου) is a municipality on the island of Samos, Samos Prefecture, Greece. The population is 2,837 (2001 census) and the land area is 87.250 km². It shares the island of Samos with the municipalities of Vathy, Pythagoreio, and Karlovasi. It is the smallest of the four municipalities in both land area and population.

Is found in the south-western side of Samos island, on the foot of the tall mountain Kerkis overlooking the deep blue Aegean sea. In distance of 30 km is found the island’s airport and 40 km is the capital of Samos, Vathi.

Allocates a small graphic traditional port embellished with traditional fish boats, where various excursion boats offers to visitors the opportunity to explore unspoilt beaches, small islets, the holy island of Patmos as well as the islands of Fournous and Ikaria. Moreover the visitor is able to travel in Turkey to visit the ancient city of Ephesus.

Is considered as the centre of the tourist region of Marathokampos municipality, where the visitor can escape for the everyday routine by enjoying the picturesque ness and the inalterable natural environment of a genuine traditional village.

Apart from the village’s beach, in very short distance are found many famous beaches such as Velanidia, Votsalakia, Psili Ammos, Limionas and others. The green region is offered for walks, excursions to the various monasteries and small churces, in the cave of Pythagoras and for ascent on the taller mountain of island, Kerkis (1450m altitude.)

Is an ideal destination for visitors who desire to spend without any interruptions their leisure time, far away from crowd tourist resorts (especially for families with small children). Visit the unique fish-village and you will be charmed from the natural environment, the picturesque ness and the ultra-clean sea…

Hi Danos,

congratulations for this mark. 3 years of good photos and learning. I want to get there! You have chosen a good composition with strong visual impact. The cloud sky and the dark tones make this scene a lot dramatic. The boat in the foreground is a nice focal point and the depth is really good. Very well done, my friend...and keep sharing!

congratulation Danos with your three years on trekearth.

My best congratulations for your 3rd anniversary in TE and for this very expressive photo to mark this milestone!
The yellow stripe in the boat in fg - with its black counterpart - is the most eminent feature which gives the character to the hole composition. I like the menacing sky and how the village reflects into the calm water. Also I like how the composition is well proportioned, showing your usual mastery in this filed with has accompanied us during these years.
Well done,

My best congratulations, happy birthday on TE!!!

Nice composition,
Interesting colors and light.

Congratulations Danos,
I am glad you are here. Your shots are inspiring and beautiful and I learned a lot about the world thanks to them.

I am not sure if something is wrong with me but I like recently very dark pictures. I have uploaded few recently and now I really enjoy this one.
Everything is so dark here. I love this mood. May be I live to long in Ireland already and it is time to move out?
Very nice composition with a boat fragment in the foreground and a nice town panorama in the distance,
Great work, TFS

Good morning Danos

3 years TE, that's quite some time. Looking at your photograph it does not look so joyful as you write. Technically it is perfect shot but the mood is a bit somber. Perhaps it is very dark ... Otherwise as stated fine sharpness and vibrant color hues. Well done and congrats to 3 years

Best regards

Dark night, amazing, ominous clouds over the harbor and the city Very cool colors and perfect sharpness.Best regards

Geia sou Danos, congratulations on your 3rd anniversary on TE. This photo is a beautiful way to celebrate and I am glad to see it is a photo of your beloved Greece. I like the dark mood of the photo where the prow of the boat contrasts beautifully in a splash of colour. Thank you for your beautiful photos, your helpful critiques and above all, your friendship. Warm regards, Lisa

Hi Danos!
Congratulations! I like this, somehow it's different. I like the light reflecting on the boat in foreground and on the houses on the hill in background.Good composition, I like the dark and cloudy sky.

Geia sou Danos,
I wish you many more anniversaries here on TE!
Here you show a dramatic sky which gives a strong atmosphere to the scene. The boat (and anchor) in FG anchors the shot well. ;)

Hi Danos
Heureux anniversaire sur TE, c'est un vrai plaisir de parcourir votre galerie, des images merveilleuse de votre pays, j'aime les touches de couleurs qui ressortent dans cette ambiance dramatique que donne le ciel, félicitations et bonne journée

hello Danos
I saw yesterday that I have missed to wish you an happy birthday on TE!It's strange,because I was sure to have done it,but yesterday,I was looking at your gallery and saw that I didn't write anything,and I want to day to repair my mistake!I like here the yellow band of the boats,that gives a very nice contrast with the landscape and the stormy weather,and this yellow brings a beautiful glare to the picture!The position of the boats gives a lot of depth to the photo too,and this is very nice to look at!

Hello Danos
Welcome to the 300 club :-)
Your quality pictures mostly from your home country have always been a treat to watch. This is an amazing scenery you present us for yor 300th, with the dark ominous looking clouds creating a fine BG for the town and most of all makes the yellow in the boat shine. Congratulations on your 300 th...a great achievement and wish to see many many more, with times to come

Hi Danos,

Congratulations on your third anniversary in our company. It is a privilege to enjoy your excellent work presented in TE. Magnificent image, the light is great here. The stormy sky created a very special atmosphere. Gorgeous colors very well contrasted, good POV and excellent sense of depth with the boat in foreground.


Hi Danos,
Congratulations for your third anniversary on TE and for your splendid photographic gallery.
You have chosen a magnificent photo to celebrate this event, with a very special light and the boat in foreground that leads our eyes towards the beautiful village and the landscape that surrounds it, under a few impressive stormy clouds.
It is an excellent work, my friend.
Best regards,

Hi Danos,

Congratulations on your three year on TE. Your photo is really original not the least mystic lighting and the very dark sky. Wonderful composition with the boat in the foreground and village in the background. TFS and have a nice Sunday evening!

Γειά σου Danos,

I am quite late, it's a shame, but even so, let me congratulate you for the anniversary and the 300 posts. It has been a real pleasure seeing your photos, receiving your critiques and, finally, having knowing you in person; and I hope we can continue do it for long.

One of the things I admire in many of you photos is the masterful use of the light you can achieve. I remember that I was impressed by it in the first photos of you I have seen. This is a good example of that. The compo is also superb. It's a bit odd knowing that it was caught in a Summer day.

I wish you and your family a merry Christmas.


Hi Danos!
Sorry to be late about sending my congratulations for your 3rd anniversary on TE! But, better late than never! You have done really well, and also matching the 300 photos with 3 years. I see the 30000 points had been reached long before! Well done, and thank you for sharing such a rich heritage with us, and showing your interest for ourr galleries too!
This is quite a stunning photograph, the general background being so dark, and the lighter parts, of the boat in the foreground and of the houses in the harbour!
Very well composed!
I hope you are having a Merry Christmas and I wish you a Happy New Year!
Marie Louise.

Γειά σου Δάνο,

Simply, this picture is excellent and you are brilliant.
Incredibly beautiful buildings in the background.
The colors almost surreal and very inspiring.
Great job.

hi Danos
odličen "close up" z močnimi in kontrastnimi barvami. bravo! lepo narejeno!! TFS!
lep dan želim, vojko

Δάνο καλημέρα,
ο ουρανός έχει αποτυπωθεί εξαιρετικά,με το ψαροκάικο, να γεμίζει το προσκήνιο.Το κίτρινο χρώμα κάνει την διαφορά με το λιγοστό φως στο βάθος να μας δείχνει τα σπίτια στην απέναντι ακτή.


Kalispera Danos,
The illumminated small town on far side of the bay gave depth and decor the night scenery.
details of the boat in FG, shown well, and maybe a lower F number would be milder for the nice photo.

καί πέρασαν κι αλλα τόσα και βάλε...και θα συνεχίσεις να είσαι εδώ κι εμείς να βλέπουμε και να θαυμάζουμε τήν αξιόλογη δουλειά σου!
Μοναδική φωτογραφία και συνεχίζω να είμαι μια θερμη θαυμάστρια σου!
καλο βράδυ σου,
