Swallow's Nest castle is a postcard image of Crimea. There is an Italian restaurant inside.
Comment about plasticy look:
This little castle is not that old- it was built in 1912. It is well maintained, so the walls are smooth. It really looks like a toy.

Amazing... for some reason it looks to me like the castle is made of plastic... Still, very beautiful place, good colors and good angle.

I agree with the Liora on the Castle looking like it's made of plastic. It's unreal, sitting there at the edge of that promontory. The walk around it sticking out over the rocks adds to the feeling that it was just placed there as a whole object by some giant hand. The colors are very nice and a good amount of space was given to the space for the water and sky so the castle has a lookout feel over the vast sea.

I think it is just over sharpened and hence the plastic feeling.
Beautiful shot, would love to dine in the Italian Restaurant out there. Just to get the feel of it. Excellently captured.

Oh - I forgot to comment of this one. My first impression was a old castel - but now I guess its some kind of "Mc Donalds" - Any way a nice capture - Its quite a place to put a restaurant.

Good perspective with a lot of space left for the water in this picture which accentutates the heigh of the cliff and castle. Great blues, sweet light and excellent sharpness. Good work!

Yes, Genka from the US, I was looking for a good picture of this to remind me... THANKS!!! Italian restaurant? - Why not Ukrainian, I wonder? I would prefer Ukrainian! What city do you live in the US?
Beautiful colors, great sharpness, very good POV.
