    Got back a few weeks ago after traveling around Athens and the Greek Islands. I've done minimal post processing (I'm pretty new to it), so mostly just levels layers and a few selective color layers on some of the landscapes to reduce the haze (it was really hazy in Athens and Santorini). CC on my pictures and ways to make them better in post. Thanks :wavey:

    Nice man. Excellent place to shoot. Number twelve would have killed it if all the chair backs were at the same height.

    Was there with the gf :o

    To be honest though, I wasn't very impressed with the Greek women.

    1 - I would've liked to see a pano shot with the structure in it...it leaves me wanting to see more of the landscape.

    6 had potential and 12 FTW!!!

    For 1, I was on the roof of a building and didn't really have much space to move around. There were some rather ugly cement walls surrounding the church, so I had to frame the church rather carefully to cut them out.

    I know what you mean by wanting to see more of the landscape, being there made me wish I had a wider lens than my 24-70 (on 1.6x crop too!).

    1, 4, and 7 were all taken on the Greek Island of Santorini, in the town of Firostefani (about 1km from one of the main towns on the island called Fira).

    Nice man, we went to Athens this past spring for our honeymoon loved it. Didn't get a chance to go to any of the nicer islands we went to the close one Aegina for a day trip. What did you think of the city overall? I was shocked how much graffiti was all over the place :hs:. Did you walk up the church on the hill and go see the national archeological museum?

    I thought Athens was okay. It's a very big, dirty city, it kinda reminded me of Rome. I loved parts of it though, like the Plaka and all the shops and cafes on the hill walking up to the Parthenon. We did find the absolute best gyros at this little souvlaki shop near the hotel we stayed though :yum:
