    Thanks guys! This was really a grab 'n' shoot situation while visiting family in Athens, Greece. I got lucky with the light - I even took some shots afterwards, including HDR, but none could match this one.

I like the LX100 a lot. I wish its corners were a bit better but judging how this shot came out, I'm fine with that. What I like most about it is that in shots like this it can provide a really large DOF.

    This is breathtaking. The reflections in the water, the soft colours, the masts leading the eye in - high in my faves

    Fantastic reflections and good choice of shooting angle.

    A love the mother-of-pearl quality of the water, the light and tones as a whole. Beautiful picture!

    good composition, exposure and colours. lack of people makes it eerie - especially with the cold light (this is a good thing !)

    Beautiful scene and mirror refection, very effective and serene.

    Great colour and tones, and the composition is not too shabby either. Only thing that bugs me is that it seems to be leaning to the right, can't tell for sure if it is off level could just be the angle.

    I like the lines, reflections and subtle colors in this shot. A common subject done very well. A favorite.

    Very nice, repetition is always a good seller. Might have considered the shot that included top of masts on right, but maybe that would have put the photographer in the water...!

    I keep getting drawn to this shot, it's so serene looking. It's in my top 5.

    This is a stand out image. I love the still waters and the composition. Nicely done.

    maybe a bit bright (for me... i wasn't there). i did open your shot with a photo program and backed off on the highlights. lessened the bright clouds and gave the water a bit more golden look.
still a great shot.

    Interesting choice to shoot into the sun, but you managed to hold the tones under control quite well.

    Nice framing. A bit of a blown highlight in the sky - but not bad. Not so sure about the color toning. I think it just has to grow on me. Still a TT contender.

    The colours, the light and the reflections work really well for me. In my favs.

    the calm before the storm of boats crews washing and preening the hulls ready for another day of sailing.
the light here is a wonderful soft blue with a few ripples of movement in the water

    Wonderful colour, light, definition and a refined presentation but I just sense it is off level though I cannot validate that other than by visual impression.
