Giorgos~ - View my most interesting photos on Flickriver

Giorgos V.. Get yours at

I always liked to take photos....especially at places I visited. With Flickr I found a wider community to share those shots and I do enjoy doing so. There are people here whose works I admire and they have helped me to improve my style and skills. Thanks so much guys! You know who you are :-)

I usually post subtle HDR shots and processed on image editors on a second phase. I like to use a range of various techniques...I get borred working on the same treatments so I am always on the hunt for new stuff. Nowadays I enjoy playing with textures and a 'painting like style'. Hope you like it as much as I do.

My hardware
Nikon D50 -main tool
Nikon Coolpix 3100

Nikkor 50mm f1.8
Nikkor 60mm Micro f2.8
Nikkor 18-55mm f3.5
Nikkor 55-300mm f4.5
Sigma 10-20mm

I occasionally use a telescope as either a direct lens with an adapter or as a powerful magnifying tool shooting with the Coolpix through the eyepiece. That is a Meade ETX-90 mm.

Although I am too lazy to carry it with me, except for some rare occasions, I use a Manfrotto 055CLD tripod with a Manfrotto 488RC2 ballhead.

For portrait shots -rare in my public photostream- I use a Nikon SB-600 Flash unit.

I also have a small collection of various filters for all the above lenses, mainly UV and Polarizers that I find very useful in landscape photography.

    "Do you remember the greatness name of the Beatles? but you may not know that the music created is a genius music.
    Do you also remember Picasso? Yes of course he’s the majestic painter.
    But before I also don’t know that he is a genius painter...
    How the meaning of a photo?
    Photo images never sing, photo also never painting by the painting brush...
    But after I saw giorgo’s photostream, I see now that he is a combine the two.
    10 minutes on my standing is not enough to see his photo.
    very extraordinary.
    Hopefully this can represent a testimonial comment on all your photos.
    Thanks giorgos for inspired me."

    "Giorgos~ is not only a great "snapper," as I say colloquially, he is generous with his knowledge and his techniques. This generosity is what makes communities great."

    "I still remember the day I added Giorgos as a contact. A shot from a street in the UK just blew me away and my love affair with his photos has kept me coming back for more. Giorgos, your photos bring joy to the world with their cheerful colors and wonderful light. Thanks for making our days a little bit brighter. You are a constant inspiration."

    "Giorgos, as said above, is a "photographer's photographer". His eye for light, colors, details and composition is uncanny, not to mention processing technique. His photographs are always a pleasure to look and appreciate, each a work of art on its own. An endless source of admiration and inspiration!"

    "Giorgos V. bring us all emotional feelings in such an unique photo. He has the technique and hability to make great shots from places and moments where nobody ever looked. Looking his portfolio you ever learn about photography and find houndreds of details to apply in your daily work. Thanks for your collection Giorgos V.!"

    "Don't waste your time reading my words.
    Giorgos pictures speak for themselves and I believe they are one of the finest testimonials you can find on flickr.
    And, unlike a few bloated egos you can also find around here, you can experience his generosity on the words and advice with the comments he leaves on his flickr visits.
    Thank you Giorgos."

    "Giorgos is an artist's artist. It does not hurt that he has access to one of the most beautiful places architecturally in the known world but what the heck that is the burden that some must live with.

    He had a fantastic touch with both composition and the wonderful tool of HDR. I stop by often to see his works of art and I recommend you do the same.

    Keep up the great work my friend."
