Good composition and perspective, nice place indicated, and beaches with sand and visitors.

Hi Danos,

The distance between the beach and the horizon is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details, the colours of the beach and of the cliffs. The good luminosity is bringing out the colours. Have a nice day.

Hello Danos,

You're capturing well this small beach by a good composition and excellent tone/clarity, so it's impressive to see the sand beach faced to beautiful/clean blue sea and the curved coastline with cliff. The visitors under colorful beach parasol seem to enjoy this summer vacation. And, it's impressive in rich greenery on peninsula.

Kind regards,

Hi Danos,
What a pretty secluded beach! Your excellent composition and competent light& color management have yielded a very pleasant photo of this idyllic place.

Καλησπέρα Δάνο,
θυμάμαι πολύ όμορφες παιδικές διακοπές μια χρονιά σ' συτή την παραλία. Χαίρομαι πολύ που την ξαναβλέπω το ίδιο λαμπερή και όμορφη με τα σμαραγδένια βαθιά νερά της, τα βράχια και το πράσινο παντού τριγύρω. Υπέροχες οι υφές και οι λεπτομέρειες της περιγραφής, εξαιρετική η απόδοση των χρωμάτων με το φως να αναδεικνύει το καθένα διαφορετικά. Κατάφερες να διαχειριστείς τον αντίκτυπο του φωτός πάρα πολύ επιδέξεια συνδυάζοντας όλα τα χρώματα αρμονικά. Συγχαρητήρια και ευχαριστώ!
Να είσαι καλά, καλό σου βράδυ,

Hi Danos,
I love the rich colours of this picture. The curve of the shore leads the eye well to the rocky coast behind. The parasols make for good foreground interest. A very pleasant impression that makes me want to visit this wonderful place!
Warm regards

Hi Danos,
Great shot of what seems to be a beautiful secluded little cove. Love the little winding steps leading down to the beach on the LH side and the little arch in the rocks.Good high POV which shows the remainder of the rocky coast. Very nice.

Geis sou Danos
I would willingly, despite my venerable age, take the long stairway downwards for a closer view at this jewel of sanded beach beautifully shown by you from a vantaged point of view that makes it appear as a precious stone set in jade environment!
Many compliments for this piece of art!
Se xereto.

Ciao Danos
è sempre uno spettacolo vedere queste spiagge immerse tra il verde della vegetazione e un mare splendido.
Bella la fila di omprelloni che porta un tocco di colore in più.

Hi Danos!
Beautiful little beach and shoreline!
Attractive and inviting picture!
Special regards to the colors, exposure, chosen pov and composition!

Κε Δάνο καλησπέρα

Πανέμορφη η λήψη σας απο αυτόν τον παράδεισο της Θεσσαλίας.Πανέμορφα χρώματα και άριστη πραγματικά γωνία λήψης.Εξαιρετική ατμόσφαιρα και όμορφος φωτισμός.Πολύ όμορφη δουλειά.

Σας ευχαριστώ και συγχαρητήρια

Δάνο, δεν έχει αλλάξει τίποτα, δεν χτίστηκε τίποτα, τα νερά τα ίδια πράσινα, τα δένδρα στην θέση τους τήν γλυτώσανε και δεν κάηκαν, λίγος κόσμος και όπως ηταν πρίν απο 20 χρόνια το ίδιο όμορφα και τώρα..να είσαι καλά πού ου τον ξαναθύμισες τον όμορφο Μυλοπόταμο..

Kalimera Danos,
Greece is known to have endless beach-strips, and each has it's beauty.
Great POV from a high place, the sandy strip draw summer vacationers, and the small rock's arch leading the view to yet another "secret" hideout over.
Fine light managed, charming natural colors.

Hi Danos,
you continue to impress me with the Greek beaches. The deep turquoise green of the see is amazing, and the rocky shore acts like a perfect framing. Lovely view!
Best wishes

Hello Danos,

I see we are both on small beaches today. Not the same mood though, as yours has a crowd of people enjoying the sea. I like the stairs going down in the greenery and the colorful umbrellas.

Best regards

Very nice capture of this beautiful beach. The colorfull umbrellas creates a perfect graphism.

Kalimera dear Danos

Ahh I love the name of this beach, but it is difficult to say :) You obtained a sensational high POV with your mountain goat climbing. The curve of the beach and sea creates a wonderful perspective and I cannot keep my eyes off the fabulous colours of the sea. The people add a sense of scale and movement.

Warmest wishes

Hi Danos,

Stunning natural beauty, I'm in love with the colors here...the range of blue's & green's is beautiful! This elevated perspective gives a terrific look at just how quaint this little section of beach is, nestled between the land and sea. Sharp, detailed texture in the rock, and transparency in the water from this height. Great way to showcase the beach and this shoreline, all set under a bright and sunny day...only wish I were there myself to enjoy the scenery. :) Have a great week.

Hello Danos,
You have fond a very good point of you to show this cozy beach in all its beauty. The excellent composition, vivid colors, picturesque rocks, lush vegetation and special recreational atmosphere say that this wonderful place surely is worth visiting. Excellent job!
Best regards,

Hello Danos,
This looks like a hidden beach, only visible from a few places. Yet it seems that quite a few people have found the way to it.
At the far end we see a passage in the rocks to ... probably a less visited beach.
Interesting on this stunning coastline is that you can discover your own private beach.
Wonderful colours of the sea and beautiful transition of the clear water on the beach to the blue green further into the sea.
Best regards, Paul

Hi Danos,
beautiful little beach, you found a perfect POV to present it from above and to show it in the context of the surrounding. Amazing is the lush green vegetation, I thought Greece is relatively dry. The colors are so well saturated and natural. The presence of the people is so important to give us the feeling of scale.
Excellent work,

Hallo Danos,
wirklich ein Traumstrand, sehr gute Qualität und Information!
Wünsch dir einen schönen Tag
