    If you want to upload them in APUG, you have to become a paying subscriber.
    Otherwise you can try sites like Flickr, Photobucket, MyArtSpace, DeviantArt, Photo.net, etc.

    I think they are excellent.
    The strong black and whites and gritty grays.
    The expansive but balanced framing.
    The anonymous shadow play figures that either move hastily in beautiful well defined environment
    or get are devoured slowly by the fog.
    They capture magnificently the feeling of Thessaloniki, at least, from my experience.

    You should become an active subscriber here in APUG.
    We all would benefit from another good photographer.

    Efxaristo file! thank you. I use only film and its not easy for me to scan (i am against digital photo) my photos and then to use photoshop to clean them and and.... These photos (I m not sure yet) are for a photo competition for the photobiennale (www.photobiennale.gr). the theme is "A night in the city" (Thessaloniki or Athens). geia hara!!!

    Yeah, I know of the competition, but unfortunately I was informed too late for it and anyway I don't have an extensive series of those two cities.

    Stick around.
    You were probably looking for some reassurance before sending the photos to the competition, but this site, because of its focus on analog, gathers some really extraordinary photographers and even the casual amateurs have a level not encountered in general photo sites.
    I always trust the opinions of people when posting my photos in APUG and their critiques, even if they just say "nice", carry an uncommon amount of respect and seriousness.

    Σοβαρά τώρα, φαίνεται πως είσαι σοβαρός φωτογράφος και τα υπόλοιπα μέλη και εγώ θα χαιρόμασταν αν γινόσουν μέλος της κοινότητας μας.

    Thank you!

    Αριστοτέλη δεν έχω ασχολήθεί καθόλου με το ιντερνετ(σήμερα έγινε η πρώτη προσπάθεια που κατέβασα κάποιες φωτο). Όμως όπως έγιναν τα πράγματα θα πρέπει να μπω και εγω στο χορό! Αλήθεια πως γίνεσαι μέλος της κοινότητας (dagiouklas@hotmail.com)? Ευχαριστώ!

    Δες εδώ:
    http://www.apug.org/forums/subscribers.php

    εν συντομία:
    Η συνδρομή για ένα χρόνο κοστίζει γύρω στα 15 ευρώ και "ξεκλειδώνει" χώρους όπως είναι η γκαλερί των φωτογραφιών (για να μπορείς να δεις δουλειά άλλων ή να ανεβάσεις την δική σου) και οι αγγελίες για αγοραπωλησίες μεταχειρισμένου εξοπλισμού.
    Αν δεν σε ενδιαφέρουν αυτά, μπορείς απλά να μείνεις μέλος όπου έχεις πλήρη πρόσβαση στο φόρουμ.
    Για να εγγραφείς χρειάζεται πιστωτική κάρτα ή επιταγή από τράπεζα.
    Ελπίζω ότι και να επιλέξεις να κάνεις, να σε βλέπουμε συχνά στο φόρουμ.

    To the others:
    Check out his photos, they are really worth it.

    I enjoy your work too.

    Welcome to APUG, from the west coast of Canada.

    One hint though, this "Feedback and Discussion" forum is really intended for another purpose.

    Don't worry, I'm sure one of the moderators will be happy to move the thread to it's right place (Introduce Yourself...?)

    Matt

    I like them a lot, particularly the foggy ones with the indistinct figures. You've got an interesting sense of composition that catches my eye. Thanks for posting them.

    Welcome to APUG!

    I really like your photos, and think they ought to do well in the competition.

    I've moved the thread to a more appropriate place, in "Introduce yourself".

    I hope we'll see more of you here.

    Welcome. They are not the sort of shots I associate with Greece and for that reason are very welcome. We don't see enough shots of Greece in the APUG gallery. Ari used to give us nice bits of photojournalism but not so much lately.

    I hope you will become a subscriber.

    Welcome to APUG from a member of the διασπορά in Sydney, Australia. Your photographs are very dramatic and strong. Good luck in the competition and let us know how things go.

    regards,
