Although the west coast of Corfu is better known for its great beaches there are a couple of good beaches right in Corfu town itself. The town and harbour are to the left and the trail to the fort is at right. I liked the gradation of color here from pale cyan to almost cobalt blue.

A really beautiful place. A steep cliff and a narrow beach between it and sea. Swimmers enjoying on clear water. Nice mountain background. Even that boat on the right is well placed.

A global view of that beach to bathe, jetty and sea shore Chris, the water looks clean and crystalline, in the bg it's deeper so the blue is darker, a lovely place to spend holidays, thanks, regards

Hello Chris, My TE neighbour today,
The fabulous transparent sea-water in turquoise and variable to blue color, is an outstanding result for this beach scenery.
Fine clear shot, depth show well the far side green foreast island across.
People also gave good scale to the whole.

I like the point of view with the gently curving beach nicely punctuated by the wooden pier. The bathers bring the scene to life and contribute to the atmosphere. A pleasantly lit image with agreeable natural tones and good sharpness.

The distance between the beach an the horizon is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the activities at the beach and in the water. The good luminosity is bringing out the colors. Have a nice day.

Un très beau point de vue pour observer les baigneurs qui profitent d'une eau chaude et claire par temps très chaud..L'ensemble est lumineux et d'une grande netteté.

Nice view and superb shot. I like POV and composition with harbour building in center and long view for beach/sea.
Have a nice day

L'endroit est très sympa et, visiblement, pas trop envahi par les estivants. Jolies couleurs de l'eau.

Your viewpoint adds a lot to the shot, giving us an opportunity to map out the details of buildings and relate them to the natural features. You have composed the scene really well, with a gradual curve from the f/g to the focal buildings and lots of time to absorb the details.
As you note, the sea colours are great!
Wish I was there!!
Have a great day,

A very good composition for this picture of that wonderful Corfu coastline.
The small boat is located at the perfect place on the picture.
A wonderful gradual transition of the greenish transparent water on the FG to the deep blue on top.
Best regards, Paul

I wanna go there! In my book, a photo that makes the viewer say "I wanna go there!" is a very good photo, accomplishing its job. Lovely POV, good timing with a scattering of people in the little cove, a speed boat having just entered the frame in the distance. Congrats and TFS!
PS. Still in Izmit or have you made it up to Şile yet? I wonder if Mesut Ilgım (mesutilgim) is still there (i.e. in Shile).
