Congratulations. I like your composition which is complemented by the wonderful Greek light. It makes such a huge difference to have such magical ambient light.
thanasaki: Thank You !All the kind people, who liked this photo and voted for it. I also love this photo very much, mostly because it tells a true story. Dear handuhi, I really appreciate your "syncharitiria" ("congratulations" in Greek)
I am also a compatriot and a long time user of Nikon gear. I have a recent post (http://www.stevehuffphoto.com/2011/12/05/daily-inspiration-291-by-stelios-makrydakis/) of work recently exhibited here in Germany. Have a look if you are interested.
Very good composition and insighful interpretation of the challenge's theme. A well deserved first place. Syncharitiria.
NEX-7 seems to address in my view some of the shortcomings that I felt NEX-5 had. I have had the NEX-5 for more than a year. The lack of a viewfinder has been frustrating, especially in bright conditions hindering proper framing.
Sony has indeed surprised us with its innovative NEX range filling a gap in the market. However Sony still lags behind on image quality. I have been shooting Nikon year for over 25 years. The quality and feel of the images even from my trusted (and now retired) D70 (in terms of correct exposure, color accuracy and clarity of lenses) surpass that of the NEX5+kit lens.
I will be getting the NEX-7 as I like the portability of the system. I am getting older and carrying 30kgr of gear in family outings just doesn't cut it anymore. I wish though to see better quality lenses and better in-camera and PP software from Sony before I switch completely. So I am keeping my Nikon gear as irrespective of megapixels count, Nikon image quality still shines.
I very much liked your perspective and the way you captured the majestic Mykonos sunset. Congratulations.
Congratulations for a well captured and composed shoot. The link with the nation's history is a great plus. Euge!
