As you have see this tower looks not so typically for Greek archtecture traditions. This is a part of the old Venetian heritage, as the famous fortress etc.

J'aime beaucoup la netteté et la fraîcheur de cette image. Probablement à cause de ce magnifique bougainvillée qui donne une belle tache de couleur à l'ensemble. La tour est très belle contrastant avec les bâtiments modernes autour.

I also discovered there are lots of fine buildings in Corfu town, many of them Italian, some looking British, not so many looking typically Greek. This is a fine Venetian style tower and generally a nice and lively street-view. I made a workshop to decrease what i find is a slightly blue tone. See what you think.

A very proud monument to the past, this old tower looks beautiful and like a fine central view in the town. You captured this under absolutely perfect lighting to bring out so much detail and the street scene at ground level brings wonderful life to the photo. Vy nice!
Thanks as always

Good morning Serghei,
You've had Greece in California, and now Italy in Greece...you're quite deceiving. :) This is a lovely corner of town, rich with natures color and Mediterranean atmosphere. The large bougainvillea with its purple tones was the first thing that caught my attention, it has a large presence in this scene, but not overwhelming. With the people scattered about and the hint of traffic, this comes alive with a suggestion of action and an inviting allure. Very nice indeed. Have a great day. All the best.

Hi Serghei, It looks italian, but I like most here the Mediterranean look of bougainvillea. So abundant! Pity our climate is not for them. Lovely corner, a few eye catching red elements also. Nice sky but I am not envious, we have such sky also in Warsaw now.

been a few years since I was last on Corfu, but this is just how I remember it. Pleased to see it has not changed too much, and a shot that captures the heat and charm of the old town superbly.
Regards - B.

A very quiet in Corfu city, we see clear more architecture styles through each other.
But the tower and blossoms are the real eye catcher on these nice picture.
Sharpness and clarity are pleasant.
Excellent composition and nice presentation too.
Very well done, TFS.

bella composizione, belle facciate e piacevoli i colori che li circondano.
I simboli italiani sono molti di più, c'è la vespa, più o meno come la mia e il gelato.....
Un bellissimo angolo ben presentato, la luce è molto forte, ma è quella giusta per questo luogo.

Fine Corfu view with the gothic tower dominating, complimented by the large purple blossoms and the coloring a subtle pastel shade.
Thanks for sharing,

we have some of this type of the buildings on Lefkada as well and that includes also the castle right at the entrance to the island. I guess at some point all the Ionian had been under influence of Italy and that made the architecture here so much interesting. I have never been to Corfu yet but it seems like after this summer it will be my small holiday destination.
Well taken picture with great quality of the light management, natural colors and perfectly balanced sharpness.
Thanks for sharing and all the best

Wonderful composition of this beautiful city, which certainly has an Italian flair in its architecture and atmosphere, great POV captured with that the venetian tower and the magnificent bouganvilla.
Very good range of colors.
Good management of the brightness and sharpness.
Well done. I like it
Good Sunday afternoon.
All the best.

You have captured a nice pallet of color in this scene. Your composition is great using a vertical format to emphasize the height of the buildings while giving us close up detail.
The lighting is great as is the photo's sharpness.

I like the warm colors surrounding the tower. The little Vespa in the f/g is a gem.
PS. I am looking forward to meeting Alisha in the morning.
