C'efalu in Sicilia, a town along the coast east of Palermo. See map.
It is like a "sleeping beauty" .
A scanned print from a visit in 9/2003.

Wonderful composition of this place so attractive, charm these old houses authentically lapped by the waves of the sea.
I visited him several years ago and I see nothing has changed its charm.
Soft lighting in a greyish day, sorry a little sun to shade colors.

A nice view on the old town clamped between the rocks and the sea.
I suppose the streets must be very narrow in this town.
The weather wasn't really beautiful or perhaps this the result of the scan of an older picture.
Best regards, Paul

The point of view is sending my eyes toward the houses then toward the mountains which is giving depth to the composition. It is also showing the details and colors of the architecture of the houses. The cloudy sky or the haze has a special effect on the colors. Have a nice day.

Hello Ike, This looks about the way I would have thought Sicily looks. It looks old but distinct with the battle of time reflected on the lower part of the buildings. This is a place I would like to visit sometime. An excellent scan to create this picture, albeit it has the look of some of my slides, just a bit tired. Great JOb. Regards. Roger

Good morning Ike,
it's the first shot i ever seen to upload from the beginning of our acquaintance.As i see you have a lot of beautiful shots in your portfolio like this one from Sicilia.Very nice and picturesque this sleeping beauty of Cefalu.The place looks melancholic without a colour to paint the walls,i wonder why.
Have a nice day,Danos

beautiful setting of Cefalu.
From a good POV, with a nice light and color.
Good work of scanning.

Excellent scanned, perfect done, alone a little bit a pity of the white sky, perhaps bad weather.
Incredible when I see the architecture with the a lot facades against each other, also the rocks behind the houses are nice in image brought.
Very well done, TFS.

wow, the water comes to just under the houses,
but green water fit white houses very well,
this combination of colors are splendid,
old houses show us another charming faces on the water,
thank you for your wonderful shot,

here I am after one week penalty. week ban on writing critiques.
remove criticism of me, which I wrote you.
Thanks for your encouraging words in the last criticism. think that I started writing reviews in your language. This proposal gave me a gentleman who deeply respect him, and he is a senior member of CHP.
slightly terrifying village on the coast of Sicily. houses seem to have decay. very interesting design. brilliant contrast! Bravo!

arrivo in ritardo a commentare questo splendido scatto a cui il passaggio allo scanner non ha tolto nulla della belleza.
Luogo incantevole ottimamente reso.
Grazie per la citazione,

Ike, how well did you capture the atmosphere and the colors of Cefalu. Despite the couldy sky the picture looks nice and the sharpness is very good.
jmdias (56655) 2010-09-07 4:56
interesting view of this town, nice the way they used the small space to build their houses. nice job
iainsp (2626) 2010-11-19 5:35
This shot feels almost like you have given it a sepia wash - although i am fairly sure no tinting has been done. You have used the light beautifully, to produce an atmospheric, melancholic scene. It has the feel of a ghost town. Very, very nice work, thank you, Iain

You're capturing well this place by a good compoaition and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see a row of houses standing on ground faced to the bay. It's a mysterious spectacle for me, but probably it utilized the geographical feature of this place effectively, and the house was built. The house seems to be tasteful, although it's old. And, the cliff and mountain in behind draw out a good atmosphere in this image.
