Thank you for the comments and votes!

It is wonderful to see after long time an image at the front page.
I guess this is my last contribution from this "sweet spot" of Thessaloniki. It is classic, a real paradise for all people who love Photography.

It took some time to find the balance between the tilted horizon and the proper human. Continuous shooting is always recommended when it comes to take images from the hip. Some patience is required as well.
This style is my favorite when traveling and walking around. The expressions of the passengers are authentic, although the majority of the images are unsuccessful. Here of course my target was different, the basic rules should be followed and finally it went well.

This ' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/15000-19999/17850/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1187587.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/15000-19999/17850/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1187587.jpg', '/') + 1) . ' was my initial choice.

It was taken while I was on the bike, probably the best shot among dozens. I still wonder if it would had scored better.

It's rare that I can say to a DPC photo, that I've been there. I absolutely love this spot in Thessaloniki!

Paschalis, you still owe me the location of that flamingo shot of yours :).

Not surprised this won! Thought for a moment when I saw the graffiti down below that it was your signature and an automatic DQ, but for your sakes glad it wasn't. Congrats!

That's a rather interesting image - the whole idea of just taking an image without a viewfinder is well demonstrated with this capture. Love it.
