Kerkyra is the most popular of the Ionian Islands. It is a very green island and a mixture of the civilizations that have passed through at various times.
The town of Kerkyra impresses and charms the visitor with its two forts, narrow streets, tall houses, arcades, Venetian-built Town Hall, church to Saint Spyridon, the corfu island's patron saint, flower-filled gardens, and balconies with their superb wrought-iron fences.
Kerkyra island lies to the north of the Ionian sea at the entrance of Adriatic.
It is the second largest island in the group known as the Seven Islands, or Eptanisa. It is the island of miracles and wonders, where every moment the scene changes without affecting the harmony of the terrain.
The most green of the Greek islands, Kerkyra , has three million olive trees. As well as flower-strewn countryside and Adriatic-style villages, it has splendid coastal scenery and some excellent secluded beaches.
On this cosmopolitan island, you’ll be able to combine relaxation with good times and a full nightlife, for Kerkyra is an international tourist center which can satisfy the demands of the most difficult visitors.
It's a piece of my heart, so I hope you'll like it too.

Nice result from the scanning Stella. Good capture of this city detail - very spectacular this red tree.
saxo042 (33854) 2007-11-25 4:00
Truly beautiful colours of the flowers here. I can almost feel the warmth in the sun and there is a very fine sense of holiday in this picture.
kdialyna (3148) 2007-11-25 4:30
Excellent quality, special from a scanning photo.
Very impressive the red buganvillea to the foreground, makes all the situation to look wonderful.
Very good choice the upright frame fits perfect with your scene.
Your note, good as always, is a very good advertising for Corfu island.

Good morning Stella, I think I know this very beautiful corner.
You framed it clever and all technical sides work very good, the scan result is also very good.
I will be back...
batalay (33377) 2007-11-25 6:50
Another wondrous shot from your analogue camera, Nikon FE. The scan has been executed so successfully that the photograph looks like the product of a very good modern digital camera. The composition is ideal, the color balance right on target (indeed, the frame you've created enhances the colors of the flowering tree). The buildings themselves feature lovely pastels. Just a very good photograph!

good quality for a scanned photo,I like the colors and POV,well done!
Sekhmet73 (4145) 2007-11-25 9:20
Ciao Stella, che bella macchia di colore! Dettagliata e molto piacevole da guardare, ha proprio quel "nonsoche" da vacanza!
mursaloglu (8047) 2007-11-25 9:22
Unu stupenda immagine arricchiata con i fiori a sinistra. Una compozisione molto simultanea e semplice ma con le tinte forti. Complimenti. ihsan
stelli (2991) 2007-11-25 10:28
Gorgeous Kerkyra is one of the best themes to capture! This one is so colorful that takes your breath away! Excellent composition and POV! Thank you for sharing! Regards Stella

belli colori,di un splendido posto e una ottima prospettiva Architettonica,
plimrn (21344) 2007-11-25 14:47
Your lovely photo shows this piece of your heart well with the bouganvilla and the palm providing a great frame for this secluded courtyard. Excellent clarity of colos and sharpness as well

Kerkira fu il mio primo incontro con la Grecia nel 1971... mi sono innamorata... di Kerkira...e della Grecia. Molti viaggi in Grecia hanno seguito e custodisco un pensiero particolare per questa isola, molto italiana anche, anche se il turismo l'ha trasformato molto.
La tua foto mostra bene l'influenzo perfettamente italiana nell'architettura e l'immenso buganvillea mostra la magnifica vegetazione dell'isola.
Per me anche, è un pezzo del mio cuore.
Greg1949 (9011) 2007-11-25 15:41
Stella, I crashed twice trying to write this critique, this is a really good shot and the subject building has loads of character, seems a wonderful place to go for a while. Great capture.
dareco (17134) 2007-11-25 19:43
I love looking at your pictures as I'm sure to be taken away to some romantic spot :) For a few minutes I can look at them and daydreaming. This is VERY dreamy!!! I love the red leaves against the very nice colors on the building. VERY PRETTY!! TFS
ifanik (21673) 2007-11-26 0:33

Bella e solare, Stella, classica composizione mediterranea arricchita dagli splendidi fiori in primo piano, brava, buona domenica, ciao Silvio
miumiu (3888) 2007-11-26 6:24
Very friendly and peaceful place! Colours are excellent and composition too!
Flowers are beautiful!
Have a nice day
tpstrek (2168) 2007-11-26 12:02
We loved to wander in Kerkyra and especialy in the old town, where one often can be surprised, e.g. by flowers like this bougainville. Your picture represents the typical atmosphere.
Nice composition and of course colours.
Aviller (3866) 2007-11-27 5:10
Beautiful colors and great composition. Perhaps I might have tried to move the building in the center a bit off-center (ie futher to the left). Still a really great capture.
emjleclercq (15778) 2007-11-28 21:51
This mass of red flowers surely makes that one a very lively picture, and you have chosen a nice framing to show the street behind, with a very good high level point of view.
All the best,
lestans (16896) 2007-12-03 15:24
Una bouganvillea davvero sontuosa! Che incornicia una graziosa calletta e una piazzettina. Che bella immagine a colori!
E' tanto che mi riprometto di andare a Corfù.
ARGI (3456) 2007-12-07 2:12
What left to say Stella after 348 viewers and 31 admirers! Well the 32nd says: Great composition,colors,frame,perspective, everything!! This amazing red is on the fowers of plant we call Buganvilia and is very common in Greece and in the Mediteranean I think, it can live and grow even in dry places.
Grande brava Stella
TopGeo (38080) 2007-12-09 0:24
Good Sunday Stella! Appreciable picture of beautiful Corfu with kantoynja. I like that you speak with so much love for the island! And i him I admire! The flowers give improbable note in your composition. I praise you,,
giorgimer (34642) 2007-12-14 4:31
bellissimo scorcio, la qualità è ottima considerando che è la scansione di una diapositiva. Colori eccellenti e bella composizione. Non capisco bene se è leggermente inclinata a destra o se è solo una mia impressione.
Bravissima, come sempre!
