Photographer's Note

One of the many churches on Santorini. The bright white exposure makes the blue sky appear in photos more blue than it usually is because it is underexposed. The effect is the same with skin too, making it appear more tanned. This is the reason many magazine advertisements and TV commercials for sunscreen products advertise in the Kyklades. Especially before the skin cancer scare when deep tanning was more popular.

This is from an old negative scan so I had to retouch a few scratches and then use Neat image to remove the noise.
