    Hey guys,

    i just returned from the most relaxing week ive had in the last ten years. I visited Imerovigli in Santorini, and i took over 2000 shots, and i just wanted to share with you guys! (C+C is also welcome)

    Ok so here goes.

    1)This first picture i took from a cliff on the south side of the island called Akrotiri. I really liked how you could see the shadow of the sail boat on the oceans surface, and the golden colors of the he whole scene really caught my attention.

    [​IMG]

    EXIF:
    F-Stop: f/8
    Exposure Time: 1/1250
    ISO Speed: 100
    Exposure Bias: 0
    Focal Length: 70mm
    Handheld

    2)This second shot i took from a little road the goes around the whole inner coast of santorini, its called the Caldera. This was taken from a rooftop, and was only able to get 2 images before the home owner started to yell at me!

    [​IMG]

    EXIF:
    F-Stop: f/8
    Exposure Time: 1/60sec
    ISO Speed: 100
    Exposure Bias: 0
    Focal Length: 18mm

    3)Now this shot was my absolute favorite, in terms of composition. Just wish i had more time to set it up right (with a tripod, and a pinch of extra lighting on the boat). From this pic to absolute darkness it was about 2 minutes... so out of the 10 shots i got, i think this was the best...

    [​IMG]

    EXIF:
    F-Stop: f/5.6
    Exposure Time: 1.3 sec
    ISO Speed: 100
    Exposure Bias: 0
    Focal Length: 18mm

    4)We went out with my two friends and did a "photoshoot" were they posed and i screamed "be a panther, look for food, kill the prey etc" and i came out with this shot, which i liked.

    [​IMG]

    EXIF:
    F-Stop: f/7.1
    Exposure Time: 1/13sec
    ISO Speed: 100
    Exposure Bias: 0
    Focal Length: 22mm

    5)This is the macro shot, I found a very intruiging shell at the hotel i was staying at, so i set it up on a table in the late afternoon, and took some shots of it.(Exif data is the same for both shots of this shell)

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    EXIF:
    F-Stop: f/2.8
    Exposure Time: 0.6sec
    ISO Speed: 100
    Exposure Bias: 0
    Focal Length: 90mm

    Hope you enjoy these pics as much as i did taking them :D

    PS. Go to Santorini! :p

    What a beautiful series of shots!! The golden glow of the sun on the water, and the long shadow of the sailboat, are so pretty. And the blues/whites of the rooftop shot are stunning - this is a view I hope to see someday myself. Your friends did a good job posing. And that boat in the third shot certainly was a nice addition (what exactly is it...part of a display at a hotel or something?)

    This series really makes me, the viewer, want to go there!

    Thanks for the kind words Antarctican... in all honesty i want to go where your name is :p

    The boat, is a real boat, its not an image/display, i was on a cliff about 50-100meters above it (i cant calculate distances to save my life) i have several shots of it passing by the suns glow on the water, but this was the most appealing in my eyes... i could post up the other ones if you guys want.

    Yeah, i must admit, although this was the first time i went on a photography trip, the lighting the sunset and all white buildings provided amazing lighting. They acted like, i think they are called Bounces ? yea, that.

    The 2nd one is great, very nice view! Did you have a UV lens on?

    The 3rd one looks amazing only if the sky is a little less, but it's still great!

    The 4th one looks very moody, I can tell you do enjoy your vacation alot! (Only if that's you)
