Hi Danos,

Right now I would be there. A great POV to show us this beautiful beach that summer with these colors with crystal clear water surrounded by nature.

A great image ... so peaceful summer (certainly in the summer will be full!) But in your image is as empty as paradise:)

Have a nice week,

Δανο καλησπερα,

This is truly amazing landscape shot with incredibly beautiful colors and details. Loooove it! I want to visit that lovely place as soon as possible!:)
Cheers, Malgorzata

Δάνο καλησπέρα,
η παραλία της τοποθεσίας του Ποταμιού είανι υπέροχη καθώς διακόπτεται από την μικρή εσοχή και συνεχίζει μέχρι εκεί που φτάνει το μάτι.Ο κορμός του δένδρου είναι ένα ενδιαφέρον σημείο της φωτογραφίας με τους καλοφωτισμένους θάμνους στο προσκήνιο να δημιουργούν ένα εξαιρετικό σκηνικό.


Hi dear Danos,

Ciao Danos,
a sea impressive for its beauty, I turned the world a lot, but I've never been to Greece and say it is close, I'll make little thought about, a wonderful place for a holiday, excellent POV and the depth of field.
Have a nice week,

Hello Danos
Wonderful beach,amazing place.
Good frame, composition and excellent colors.
Very impressive quality of the image.
Excellent work, I think the shot and composition, very interesting and informative accompanying text.
Best regards

Ciao dear Danos,
the only difference between this picture and a picture captured in the Caribbean is the absence of palm trees. Beautiful place, but above all beautiful sea, with a fantastic turquoise color. Excellent choice of POV and perfect definition of details and colors. Compliments!
Ciao, have a nice Tuesday!

Hi Danos
Un POV très bien choisi sur une belle étendue du paysage mais surtout de la couleur sublime de la mer, un endroit très plaisant, merveilleusement présenter
Belle journée

ciao danos,
inquadratura profonda sulla costa con l'inserimento dell'albero a creare composizione.
Molto belli i colori e ben gestita la luce.
buona giornata

Hi Danos,
a picturesque view with attractive composition, the atmosphere is peaceful, beautiful details and lights, excellent POV, Tfs! Have a nice day! Kellemes napot kívánok!

Yassas Danos,
The quiet peaceful nature of this paradise-like beach nested in a lovely pine forest must be a perfect place for swimming and sun-bathing. The amazing turquoise blue waters are inviting and blend beautifully with the surrounding greenery. Somehow it reminds me of some Corsican beaches I’ve seen.
Have a nice day.

Kalimera Danos,
A wonderful turquise sea color, in a beautiful coastline curving toward the horizon.
Charming area, well collected in photo.

Hi Danos,
Lovely panoramic view. The colors are amazing, a true paradise there.
Well catch, have a nice day.

Hello Danos,

A beautiful beach with turquoise colored water and peaceful atmosphere. Superb colors and sharpness. It must be very enjoyable to spend a day here.


Hi Danos,
what a delightful blue tonalities at the sea!
You have found a splendid POV to catch a deep and wonderful sight on this beach, by means of a good framing that includes the tree in foreground to give a bigger three-dimensional sense.
The light is beautiful, and the colors are perfectly achieved.
It's a great composition, my friend.
Best regards,

Hello Danos,

An ideal destination for vacation, you have taken this photo from a very attractive POV. With a pine tree in the foreground, the beach looks even larger. The blue sky, and the blue ocean, what more one can ask for. The contrast of the hill on the left side and the ocean on the other. It is a very well composed and presented. Thank you Danos for this wonderful image. I wish that I could be there now.

Very best regards, Danos

Bom dia Danos

Splendid landsape. Marvelous the form of the beach . Really a magnific composition. Very well done.

Hi Danos
Your composition is very pleasant, the greenery of the tree is a delightful contrast to the aqua colours of the water. Such incredible saturation and flawless light management. The white wave-surf on the beach add another contrasting colour to the image and show the immense depth of the view well. A very original shot and fantastic landscape photography. Beautiful work, all my compliments.

Hi Danos,

What beautiful scene. I love the colour of the water and the beach looks really great and very inviting. You have chosen a perfect POV and the inclusion of the tree adds depth. It is a bit surprising that such a wonderful beach is totally empty on such a nice day. TFS and have a nice evening!



Ciao Danos,
fantastic landscape, perfect color and depth, great balance, such as compliments.
good August

Hello Danos,
first of all,I´d like to thank you very much for your WS of my picture yesterday.It looks much better after your correction.
Concerning your picture,the view you´ve provided us with this excellent POV is wonderful.I like the way you framed the picture with the tree on the left,which interplays well with the rest of composition.But one thing really stands out your photo.It´s these beautiful,vivid colors.Your picture conveys well the beauty of this place.
Have a nice day

Hi Danos,
this is a truly breath-taking view.
The beach is so beautiful and the interesting shape with a tiny rock in the center makes it really unique and creates a funny geometric shape. I love the colors especially the various tones of the water. Great idea to include the tree in the foreground it enhances the wide angle effect.
Excellent work,

Salam Danos,

The Potami beach is really beautiful n your shot shows its beauty well.. great colors n pov and I like the inclusion of the trunk.. well done.. tfs

Many thanks for your kind words, dear Danos.
Nature painted lovely lines on shore that could be taken for the top of a jade heart!
Those changing colors of sea are appealing so beautifully-framed by the mountain at left and I presume the old tree that crowns the scenery " died on the spot" overwhelmed for many years by such beauty!!
Se xereto.

Hi Danos,
Beautiful seascape nicely presented and composed with amazing colors and light,
Excellent bird view with a nice perpective of the beach,
Very well done..

Hello Danos!
Beautiful landscape...the turquoise and the azure of the sea is mesmerizing. Like your framing with the tree on the left which also provides good depth. Well done!

Hello Danos,

Risky position, but I like that, because chances are that the details of the tree may be lost (you will see only a silhouette).
The beautiful lighting (my compliments) makes that it is not in case, you can see now every detail.
Also the composition is great....Great work.
