Fort at the entrance of the harbour, today under Russian administration.
Sevastopol is the largest town on the Ukrainian peninsula of Crimea. It is located on the Black Sea, at the same latitude as Bordeaux. The formerly closed city lies on the southwestern edge of the Crimea on the foothills of the Crimean mountains. It is the home port of the Russian Black Sea fleet. The population dbeträgt 400,000.
The Russian Navy with its Black Sea fleet is still the largest employer in the region and funded 25 percent of city budgets. Alone for the lease of the military port for the Russian Black Sea Fleet will pay several million dollars a year to Ukraine.

An interesting composition of this fort, whose severe lines are slightly reminiscent of a ship. Very good clarity.

The point of view is sending my eyes toward the fort which is giving depth to the composition. It is also allowing me to see the details and colors of the architecture of the fort. The late morning light is enhancing the colors. Have a nice day.

Have a nice weekend Achim.

Your framing values with efficiency the interesting architecture of this fort, which white color is outlined well on the coastal landscape that surrounds it.
I like the luminosity and the sharpness of the photo, and his good colors.
A beautiful work, my friend.

Good weather and bright light helped for the natural looking colours. The framing may be a bit central, anyway i think it is an "hot" place with Russian control of the port...

des blanc pas toujours faciles à bien saisir sous le soleil et la réussite de cette photo, réside aussi en leur capture très soignée. Ils sont bien coincés entre des bleus tout aussi naturels. Une photo interessante par son sujet, ramarquablement cadré.

Hello my dear Achim
What an impressive secnery shot indeed!
Perfect framework and well considerd stable composition as usual. So sharp and clear presentation by proper exposure and light/color management.
Usage of simple prime color adds attractiveness to this great shot. Congratulation on your greatest job and thanks for sharing, have a good Saturday!

The interesting detail here is to see the russian flag float over ukrainian territory, this made the news recently and many ukrainians are upset the deal was extended.
I'd cut most of the empty foreground here
Have a nice day JY

Ce fort d'une autre époque a encore fière allure tout de blanc vêtu comme à la parade. J'aime la simplicité de la composition qui met en valeur cet édifice.
pablominto (53744) 2010-10-23 23:55
A massive structure, probably a most impressive defence structure in its days..!
Now it gives an opportunity to create a graphical photograph, consisting of different square shapes...
A lovely colour mix!

This fortress is impressive, and does not have a very friendly appearance:) the very interesting image is of very good quality. The note is also very interesting. Cheer.
gunbud (34066) 2010-10-24 14:48
The old white fort contrast nicely with the pale blue sky and vivid blue ocean.
Excellent sharpness of details in this fine coastal image.
nikkitta (13220) 2010-10-24 16:55
Interesting note for a good photo that at first glimpse I believed was a ship!!
Like the composition on white and blue and the Russian Flag!!
JCG (35129) 2010-10-25 11:28
Good presentation of this fort which benefits from a beautiful light emphasizing well its white frontages between these two layers from blue represented by the sea and the sky. Interesting glance like your note, thank you Achim.
With all my friendships and a very good evening,
shevchenko (19051) 2010-10-27 21:56
Attractive whitish fort in between the sky and water even visible from a far distance, clear to see the unique wall that completed with many windows, thanks for sharing a beautiful fort.
