[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I have shared with you already the most classical postcard-like view of Sveti Stefan in Montenegro, but this place is so magical that I will probably show it from several different angles over and over again. I had the pleasure to spend two nights in this lovely town. People were so very friendly. My only regret was that it was too short.

Hello Mariusz,
What a delightful photo of the charming houses and its appealing orange roofs, which are lit by a very fine sunlight. The trees make a lovely natural frame. Excellent work.

Hello Mariusz ,
if you've taken a saw with you , you could have cut the branche in the corner on the left at the bottom ;)
I like this kind of framing by trees ; superb red roofs of this so picturesque place .

Hello Mariusz,
Wow, you spent two nights in Sveti Stefan. I heard it is very expensive.
It surely looks most charming.
Beautiful with those red roofs and the blue sky and sea.
Nicely framed with the branches.
Best regards, Paul

Witaj Mariusz, śliczne zdjęcie, nie taka klasyczna pocztówka i przez to ciekawsze. Ładne sie komponuje między drzewami, a i w miasteczku sporo zieleni. Ciekawe, wszystkie domy tu wygladają właściwie jednakowe, jakby były zbudowane z klocków, np. LEGO - proste szare ściany, niezbyt spadziste czerwone dachy. Musiało być fantastycznie tam sie zatrzymać na noc, zobaczyć miasteczko o wschodzie i zachodzie słońca (nie mówiąc o blue hour), ale jeden dzień by mi wystarczył (gdyby nie było za drogo). . Ale to tu były te drogie plażowe łózka?
Fantastyczna ostrość i kolory.

Pozdrawiam Małgorzata

Hi Mariusz,
nice view, interesting POV of the town, nice light and colors with these colored roofs, well taken and presented a well made frame with these branches.

Czesc Mariusz!
Piekny widok, charakteru tej kompozycji dodaja czerwone dachy.
Elegancka "pocztowka".
Ladny kadr i kolorystyka.
Dzien dobry!

That is a great POV found, Mariusz. Red roof-tiles in fabulous contrast to blue and green, nicely framed with the trees in the FG.
Good idea, my cong.s'.

Your picture is very nice to look at.
Composition and subject, are superb.
An excellent presentation, sharp and clear picture.
Very well done, TFS.

Bonjour Mariusz,

Un très beau point de vue entre les branches d'arbres sur un bien beau village sur une île. Les beaux toits oranges captent toute l'attention et contrastent bien avec le beau ciel bleu.

Hi Mariusz,
Spectacular place, one of the most beautiful I've ever seen. I lie your POV, perfect catch!


Dobro vece.
Gledao sam Sveti stefan sa puta koji vodi za Budvu.
Interesantan i lep pogled, dobar tekst ...
Dobar rad, kompozicija, perspektiva i kontrast, lepo pokazano.
Lepe kuce od kamena sa crvenim krovovima.
Prijatno vece i sve najbolje u novoj nedelji koja je pocela, srecno.

Good evening.
I watched Sveti Stefan from the road that leads to Budva.
Interesting and beautiful view, a good text ...
Good work, composition, perspective and contrast nicely shown.
Beautiful stone houses with red roofs.
Good evening and all the best in the new week that began, good luck.

Hi Mariusz
Quelle vue fascinante sur ce village sur l'ile aux toits rouges, j'aime la prise de vue, les couleurs, très belle présentation
yes c'est toujours trop court quand l'on se sent bien quelques part
belle soirée
PS) Un jour quand vous irez à Bruges, gouter les bonnes moules / frites :-)

Hello Mariusz
Interesting to compare the two version of the beautiful Sveti Stefan.
Your previous post gives a more complete overview, but this one has a more detailed and creative composition. Both are excellent.

Hi Mariusz,

Firstly, thank you for referring to your previous photo of this place - I think I must have been on holiday when you posted it - but I've written a critique on it just now - it's wonderful!

And this photograph is a delight too. Did you actually stay on this little island where the sunbeds can cost €130 per day? Or did you stay in a town nearby?

This is a lovely photograph too, though perhaps not quite so striking as your previous one. But I do like how you entice us by making us look through a gap in these trees - almost as though we were being like spies and looking at something we're not supposed to - but the trees and foliage do make an excellent frame.

The red of the roofs make them stand out remarkably against their surroundings, the light is lovely, the colours are vibrant and the details and sharpness are exquisite. Excellent depth of field too with both the foreground trees and the distant view all stunningly sharp.


Kind Regards,


Hello, Mariusz!

The view of these houses is beautiful with the strong colors of the roofs standing out in this beautiful composition! The leaves in the foreground give very good depth to the image! Wonderful job!

Olá Mariusz,
bonita composição mesmo mostrando essas contruções, que são bem interessantes. A moldura natural ficou perfeita. Belo trabalho.
Parabéns e Abraço,

Hello Mariusz,

I stayed overnight in Sveti Stefan and was not disappointed. The reality more then lived up to the hype. The framing adds depth and layering to the composition. Excellent sharpness and saturation. Tfs!

Hi Mariusz
Nice panoromic landscape with the overwhelming red roofs on the cluster of buildings caught our attention, balanced by nice curtain effect of the foreground.
Excellent detail, clarity and contrast to blue background. Excellent composition, Congrats
Best regards

Hello Mariusz.
Masterly composition, because the natural beauty of the walled town, which seems to me an island, add the magnificent POV chosen, framing the branches of these trees, which enhances the beauty and perspective of this special place.
Very good brightness and sharpness, with beautiful colors.
Well seen and done better. I like it.
Have a nice day.
Best wishes.

Najbardziej znana wyspa na czarnogorskim wybrzezu. Pogoda dopisala i mamy swietny kadr z atrakcyjna kolorystyka. Mam te miejsca w planach wyjazdowych, tym bardziej ze niedaleko sa tez piekne i dzikie gory;)
