Taken in the back streets of Kalymnos, I loved the way the light played on these steps. I have added the texture to draw attention to this light.

I really liked this and thought it was taken through a slightly dirty window in an abandoned house. The emphasis on the softly lit staircase is excellent. A small niggle - and it might be me - but the seems to be a slight lean to the right. Rgds., Adam

These greek staircases need little to enhance them
but you've used your magic to great effect.

Thanks for your comment but I feel that it may be an optical illusion as I used the grid to get this straight. Thanks for taking the time to look though, any comments always welcome!

It should have been 1-1 Carol.That ball was a good five rusty bolt lengths over the line for the Ukraine !!
Still, I look forward to the Italian Game.I have a friend who is Italian and works in the Pizza shop down the road from me.
If Italy win I am assured of a free pizza and chips !!
Good shot and L'Italia Si Accende !!

These we back street details often tell as much about a place as the more conventional scenes: well spotted photo opportunity and so nicely presented too, Carol.

A lovely piece of work again, Carol Smile Thanks for answering my question - it's certainly a cheaper way than having to go out and buy chairs of the required colour! Excellent job at re-colouring them too, well done girl! Wink
