The glass-enclosed of the Passagers Ferry Station in Patras in the afternoon.

Patras (Demotic Greek: Πάτρα, Classical Greek: Πάτραι Pátrai, Latin: Patrae, Ottoman Turkish: Ballıbadra) is the third-largest city of Greece and the capital of the prefecture of Achaea, located in northern Peloponnese, 215 kilometers to the west of Athens. The city is built at the foothills of Mount Panachaikon, overlooking the Gulf of Patras.

The Patras metropolitan area is a conurbation of a quarter of a million inhabitants.The core settlement has a history of four millennia, and in the Roman times it became a cosmopolitan centre of the eastern Mediterranean whilst, according to Christian tradition, it was the place of Saint Andrew's martyrdom. Dubbed as Greece's Gate to the West, Patras is a commercial hub, while its busy port is a nodal point for trade and communication with Italy and indeed with the rest of Western Europe. The city has two Public Universities and one Technological Institute featuring a large student population and making it a major scientific centre with a field of excellence in technical education. The futuristic Rio-Antirio bridge connects Patras' eastern suburb of Rio to the town of Antirrio, essentially connecting the peninsula of Peloponnese with mainland Greece. Furthermore, the city hosts the country's greatest European-style carnival that takes place every spring. The main features of the Patras Carnival include the mamoth-sized satirical floats and the extravagant balls and parades. There is an indigenous cultural scene mainly active in the performing arts and modern urban literature. The city enjoys a pleasant Mediterranean climate, with relatively cool yet humid summers and very mild winters.The city of Patras was the European Capital of Culture in 2006.

Γειάσου Δάνο, δεν κατάλαβα ακόμη, ευτό που βλέπουμε είναι καθρέπτισμα; Μάλλον έτσι νομίζω αλλά δεν είμαι σίγουρος.
Πάντως σαν σύνθεση είναι εντυπωσιακή και με θύμισες τα δύο καλοκαίρια όταν κυκλοφορούσα καβάλα σε μια πάπια ερχόμενος από Ζάκυνθο και περίμενα την σειρά μου για Ηγουμενίτσα και μετά την γκάζωνα στα βουνά της Ηπείρου.-¨))
Από το σημέιωμά σου στο τέλος λείπει κάτι γιατί η φράση κόβεται χωρίς νόημα.

Hello Danos,
What a wonderful image. I like your tones here, good decision. Excellent composition and the mood is so well captured. Looks so serene, and peaceful for a place that looks like it should be crowded with people. The reflections are just lovely! Great one.

Hello Danos,
Wonderfull catch ! Great compo and very nice reflections.Very good idea, realised perfectly !
TFS and best regards from İstanbul

Kalimera Danos,
congratulations. Well seen and captured. Great light management, the result is great. And includes you in a pleasant way.
Lieben Gruss, Ulf

Hi Danos,
That's an impressive reflection in color, clarity and size. It shows most of the elements of your note that characterize Patras. The red motorbike fills the foreground nicely. Just wish the car wasn't there. Regards,

Bonsoir Danos

Excellent colors and compo, I like the nice sunset sky seen through that huge glass and the red motor-cycle. Special light.

Hi Danos,

Very wonderful and beautiful combination of nature and a man made graphical element .. well seen .. well done.

take care,


Nice to see you there, Danos :)))))
The sky is amazing and the reflective façade has a good attractive graphism. I only wish that this place didn't have so many cars, to show us a better view of the landscape and give us a stronger graphical result. Good one here, although I find the central composition in WS, very interesting as well. Nice original work.
Friendly regards,

Helo Danos
One very greath shot and i like it very match
I joy when i see works like this one and keep it for me

hi danos
nice result, the reflection in the glasses are beautiful, the fact to add the red scooter is great idea,it makes a good introduction to the photo.

Kalimera Danos, my friend...
Oh my God... It's a perfect reflection on the windows... The light and the colors of the sunset are perfect too... Also wonderful point of view and depth... I like it so much...
Stay well..

Wow filemou,
Superb catch of these wonderful reflections. The colors, the tones and the composition is absolutely wonderful.

Hi Danos,
well composed picture. Sunset in the glas reflection is impressive, I like combination of this building with parking place and nice landscape.

Hi Danos.

Excellent reflection!!! The colours and the light are great!

Rgs, Oscar

Hello Danos,
What a neat photo, great reflections indeed and one of you too! The mountains are beautiful and love the sky color ...int he windows!! :o) Thanks for sharing

Thanks also for your comments on my photo " Mesmerized by the Falls (16) " :o) I've been away awhile...

Hi Danos
You found a very reflective glass panel wall, showing clearly the sunset behind you...colors, textures and sharpness are fine. The scooter and car dont add much to the compo, but they are difficult to remove from your POV!! ;D
I think it is you we see on the right?

Hi Danos!

Hey what a great idea you have had taking a shot from this place, where you appeared on the left side! ;-)

The landscape shown on the glass is awesome, even showing some different shades, colours and light!

The sharpness, excellent to check every single detail on your composition!

Cheers Danos! Have a great day!

Bonjour Danos,
c'est astucieux de découvrir un paysage au travers de son reflet. D'autant que celui-ci est net et étendu.
Il polarise un peu la lumière et donne des contrastes plus forts.

Best regards.

Hi Danos,
good work in this photo, with a few magnificent reflections in this front of crystal that is a mirror where we see a nice landscape of mountains and sky, and also to the photographer.
Good lighting, soft and saturated well colors.
I like it, is very creative.
Best regards

Hi Danos,
It's not 'my kind' of photo, but I appreciate this much, as it features a great pov and colours. Having so much cars (those monsters that so frequently ruin our shots), I am amazed how you could make a so pleasant photo.
Regards, José.

This is one of the better reflection images I have seen. Ever!

Hi Danos!
Excellent composition with an amazing reflection.I like the moto in the foreground and also the way the clouds mix with the lamps inside. Good work!

Danos, j'aime bien cette composition avec cet effet d'écran panoramique donné par le reflet du paysage de cette grande verrière. Le ciel est superbe et le rouge du scooter fait un excellent point d'encrage.

Wonderful picture...
Great light, nice colors and POV.

I would have just focused on the motorcylce (avoiding the car) but I like the idea of this single object in an overcrowded parking we can guess in the mirror.
All the reflection is OK here, the sky, the road and... you !
Interesting idea.

Kalimera Danos.

Great reflections and also a good composition for this photo. Here we can see how sometimes the simplest photos are the best ones.

Well done.

HEllo Danos,
That's a great idea!
The effect is realy nice and give a good dof!
Beautiful reflexions.

Charmante réflexion !
Bonne journée.

Hello Danos,
Great idea with very nice reflection and composition
Well done

Geia sou Dano,
Very creative self portrait also, while the reflected parking place has interesting details before a dark sky. Good idea. Congrats,

Kalimera Dano, a very urban take on Patras. I love the rhythm the glass facade brings to us and the scooter in the FG - my fav way of getting around Greece when I'm not trekking on foot. The beautful light really adds to this one.
Have a fine weekend,

Δάνο καλημέρα.
Μόλις γύρισα απο διακοπές και απο ότι βλέπω αρκετές καινούργιες και πολύ ενδιαφέρουσες φωτογραφίες στην "gallery" σου.
Η συγκεκριμένη μου τράβηξε αμέσως την προσοχή για την πολύ καλη ιδέα σου να βγάλης την αντανάκλαση του ουρανού με τα καταπληκτικά χρώματα, μέσα απο τη τζαμένια πρόσοψη του κτιρίου.
Πολυ καλή επίσης ιδέα να συμπεριλάβεις και τον εαυτό σου.
Σε χαιρετώ για την ώρα.

Hej Danos,
I love glass facades, they often give such beautiful reflections! This one is also great. The row of cars looks nice and I like the inclusion of scooter in the foreground. The cloudy sky enhances with its fine light conditions! Well done and thanks for sharing!

Γεια σου Δανο,
Εκπηκτικη συνθεση και πρωτουπη εμπνευση και εκτελεση.

Καλημέρα Δάνο
Τα χρώματα της δύσης μας αναγκάζουν (κατά κάποιο τρόπο) να κάνουμε μια στάση για χαλάρωση ίσως και συλλογισμού κατά το τέλος της ημέρας σε ένα καθημερινό αστικό πλάνο. Αυτή τη στάση την θεωρώ απαραίτητη για να θυμόμαστε όλοι καθημερινά οτι είμαστε άνθρωποι και όχι ρομποτάκια προγραμματισμένα για δουλειές και υποχρεώσεις.
Σε χαιρετώ Σωτήρης

Very nice play with reflection and light. The sky looks awesome and well balanced light on the scooter. Great stuff! Gilbert
