    I've preferred to see only a part of the subject...
But no problem!

    I actually smiled when I saw this. Why? You avoided the cliche Santorini shot with the blue Aegean in the background and gave me a view I have never before seen. For that alone you get into my favourites, well done to look beyond the obvious.

    A good eye for expressing the theme in a non-contrived or manipulated setting. The color stands out beautifully. More than an accent, it dominates.

    added to favorites, interesting that there are so many buildings with blue roofs, is it common there or are these buildings all part of a complex of buildings?

    Beautiful place. Very good finding for the theme.

    I am intrigued by the different architecture and how close everything is! I would have worked on the blues in this shot and maybe added more luminance in pp to give it more "pop". Or maybe I'm seeing it is a tad underexposed? Regardless of that, it is an image that keeps me looking.

    There is great potential in this shot which seems lost by inadequate post-processing. The series of blue domes and blue sky with the whitewashed expanses should be stunning but here appear a little washed out; sort of what I call the "dishwater" look; instead of clear as crystal the look is a little dull. The composition is very good, the cross perfectly placed and the subject dominant and with just enough touches of red in the image to accent the blue and white and give the image interest and depth; this really could have been spectacular.

    Beautiful town, when I read your additional info as being typical, this really amazes me. I'm from a small town in the Midwestern US, I have seen nothing like this anywhere near me except for in picture like this, great shot.
