Classic view of Corte castle from the belvedere viewpoint. Taken during a meeting with TE member Loïc. He was not present when I went to the belvedere, but it was thanks to his suggestion that I went there, midday light, a bit harsh. The view hides most of the lower part of the city, Corte is bigger than what appears here, and has a nice setting between high mountains. Thanks again to Loïc for the hospitality and warm welcome. And greetings to another corsican member I met that same day jpphoto.

un village corse bien typique de l'ile, escarpé, maquis tout y est, magnifique vue, beau travail

Your composition is great here placing the castle in the upper left corner of the shot while showing it's view of the city below. The lighting and colors are great with excellent sharpness and detail.

Indeed, the title says it all, and what a nice summer we were having early this month, Has it turned winter down there also?

Bonne fête de Pâques .

I don't think it is overexposed but it is bright as there is plenty of sun in Corsica around noon, but in winter at least you can rescue the sky, what I like is how the two main elements get separated by the wide angle widening
Have a nice day JY

A very pleasant view with appealing colours and a fine sunlight. You present the town and surrounding mountain landscape in a very good composition. Really good work, thanks for sharing!

Merhaba Tan Bey,
Bu zamana kadar nasıl olmuşsa galerinizden haberdar olamadığımdan(TE.ü layıkıyla izleyemediğimden) neler kaçırdığımı şaşkınlıkla gördüm,Türkiyeden çıkmış,dünyanın neredeyse bütün güzelliklerini tanımış, muhteşem kareleriyle de paylaşmış,böylesi zengin birinin varlığını görmekten çok mutlu oldum ve gurur duydum, ancak şimdi fotoğ.zı sergi gezer gibi toptan görmüş oldum.Tam bir gezginsiniz, Fotoğ.gözünüz süper,çekimleriniz mükemmel,tebrikler ederim.(Egeli olmanızda artı puan)
Bölgenin bütün can alıcı özelliklerini birlikte harika bir perspektifle göstermişsiniz.Nefis bir manzara.Elinize sağlık.Kutlarım

Great composition. Impressive rock on the left with the fortress as a natural element and well handled strong light.
