Santorini -- Oia

When going to Santorini one can't get away from the island without having taken this exact shot. It is featured on many post-cards, showing what Oia is so famous for: White chapels with blue domes, along with the deep blue sea and the island's incredible caldera in the background. Although the place is a little tricky to find, once you're there, you'll find a waiting line and you have to be patient until its your turn. And since always people will be behind you, you have to be quick with your shots...

Most of the work was done on the background, since it turned out too dark and lacking contrasts. Because of all that sunlight on these white surfaces, I totally goofed and heavily underexposed this shot, so it got somewhat noisy during post-processing.
