Thank you Fons and Randy ! I realy must recommend this island VIS ! It's urban history - which shows up in the wonderfull architecture - is older than 1000 years and has several roots and origins as roman, slavik, t?rkisch, italian ! The water surrounding this rocky island is cristall clear and full of fish - a divers and photographers paradise ! On my 4 hour passage (single) from the "Cornat islands" to VIS I was struggling with 3 meter waves from a nice "Bora" wind (storm) ....

Interesting composition. I wonder why F/6.3 was chosen for the evening scene. It seems I am getting more detail in around F/3.2 - F/4, and especially in mirky scenes. It is interesting how the wire on the left wall goes from one building to another and not across the street. It is almost as if it was cleaned up. Also, the sky appears to have a bit of unnatural overcast, more like of a lipstick than of an evening sun. Overall the staircase and the rust on the walls appear to be quite natural. As I sit back and look at it again the picture has a certain mood. Thanks for sharing. - Sergey

Sergey thank you for your interest in this foto !

Its more ore less a bad habit of mine that I tend to set higher Fstops to "enshure" the DOF I want ! The wire thing is no secret ! - I erased them from the blue sky (cleaning by cloning)! The evening sky on the island of VIS often - to my surprise - showed me a funny lipstick like colour - and I allowed myselve to sturate this phenomena exessively ....

Well, the light in this scene was probably not ideal, and most people would've just passed by. You did the good work. Thanks for sharing. As for the wire I would've either removed it completely or, better yet, left it as it is. -
