[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This shot was taken from the same place as this picture but on the following day.

Shot from the garden of the little villa we rented last week in north-east Corfu, looking east across the Ionian Sea towards Albania whose coast you can see in the background, just 2 or 3 kilometers distant.

There was a pot of geraniums sitting on a wall and I thought I might use the flowers for some foreground interest. This meant using a small aperture (f/20) to enable sufficient depth of field. I also used fill-in flash this time to enhance the flowers. Not much done in processing other than to level, crop, resize and sharpen.

Shot in RAW using a polariser and fill-in flash and converted and edited in PSE6.

Hi John,
Superb photo of Corfu!
Your small aperture works very finely here, letting see far away beyond the coast.
I like the suggestion to use a fill flash a better lighting in foreground. This adds a + at the depth already very sharp!This image well composed is very appealing with the progressive contrast of vivid and soft colors! Bravo! Annie
