Stelios Kritikakis Contact

Hello, my name is Stelios Kritikakis, I'm 30 years old, I live in Kalamata Greece and I am a computer programmer. The interest I had in photography begun in my childhood. A hidden interest among others, which I made true a couple of years ago, when I bought my first DSLR camera.
I have to admit my best friend played his part on that.

The combination of imagination, inspiration and luck is what photography stands for me. Being there in the appropriate time comes second, but if you'll combine knowledge and timing plus the parameters mentioned you'll get a successful shot!

Many people are against digital processing, saying it's more authentic to take the shot without any further processing.
I believe photography keep enough secrets, waiting, begging us to reveal through digital processing.
Besides I'd like you to see what and how I'm thinking and feeling from taking the shot until making the final picture. In most cases I believe there is a bigger picture inside the one you've shot, and this bigger picture can be revealed through digital processing.

The pictures you'll see mostly, are from Greece, traveling, cities, nature, daily life, and whatever my imagination think is worthy to devote some time for an acceptable final result.

I hope you enjoy my collection,
You're welcome to comment or critique freely as your opinion matters to me in order to become even better. All your comments are marked as useful, even the ones like "great picture well done" tells me, that there is an amount of people who like or dislike my work. Quite useful don't you think?

About my critiques, I judge hard, and the only reason is to improve the photographer's skill in shooting and after in post processing.
So please don't take it personal, because it isn't, and why should it be anyway?
Besides I always give +2 points even for the effort and there are few times I'm strict in pointing system always explaining why.

Collecting points might satisfy our ego but its pointless and boring sometimes, I try to see the creative side of each picture and critique according to the skills of the photographer. My goal is to help and trouble your mind more in order to become more creative. I hope you want that.

*** 1 DEC 2008 NEWS UPDATE ***
I was drawn away a bit from trekearth, being very busy lately with a different kind of photography except the descriptive/touristic as you know me here.
A small sample can be found in my facebook profile here before the presentation of my portfolio which contain pictures from Greece such as touristic and artistic in many ways material.
I'm waiting for your comments and news! Thank you all.
