Fodele 2

Fodele village
The little village of Fodele, west of Heraklion in Creta is considered to be the birthplace of the Greek painter El Greco(Dominicos Theotocopoulos). At the supposed site of his home a museum has been erected housing copies , old books and documents related with the painter's life. Two of his original paintings are housed in the Museum of Arts in the nearby city of Heraklion.

    a superb picture alongside a natural view through the window. You have managed the light here very well and the colours are lovely.

    I like your composition and presentation here where the colours of outside nature compete with the beautiful El Greco painting for attendion ... very effective editing too !!
