I have not been to Greece, let alone Santorini, but I can spot a scene from Santorini in the flash of a thumbnail. Very pretty. #1561269

Thanks, Carol and Mary. There's a story behind this image. In January, I took Rob Sheppard's course on Lightroom. In my first attempt with this image in Lightroom, I tried to balance the tones. Rob pointed out that the whiteness of the scene was not a negative--it was a positive. So in this, my second attempt, I just let the whiteness glow--the way it was glowing when I was there. #10989890
