[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Attard is a quiet area located between Mdina and Valletta in the central part of Malta. Along with the towns Balzan and Lija, they form “the three villages” as they are so close to each other. In fact, one side of the street can be in one village and the opposite side could belong to another village. Due to Attard’s flower and citrus gardens, the villages motto in Florigera Rosis Halo, which is "I perfume the air with my blossoms" in English. Attard’s people are called saraċini, and about 10,300 people live in an area of 7 km2. In the village many narrow streets surround the Parish Church which is dedicated to the Assumption of Our Lady. This is an example of the old architecture of the village of Attard.

Grandisoe compo et iamge superbe vue quelle architecture quel rendu sur la pierre et cette porte de bois, superbe iamge et captage.

bravo et amitié


I really like the perspective here Francis .. looking up at the walls, and the sky beyond. Love the warm colors of the old walls, the plant by the door, and the door itself too. For me, the sky is maybe a little too saturated .. just my opinion though!

Hi Francis,

You have an eye for capturing great images. This one is a good example. I like the POV, light, color, DOF and focus. TFS

Hi Francis.

Amazing detail to the stonework, the angled walls give interest and attraction here. The hint of red, green with the vivid blue adds to the beauty, TFS

A very striking image with the converging angles of the buildings creating a very geometric image. Great POV and vibrant colors, the HDR is not overdone and fits perfectly.


Very nice capture of this village street and thanks for the info. Love the warm colors. Good pov and dof with nice details. Well done, tfs.

Hi Francis...beautiful light. Knowing what beautiful light is and where to find it is probably the key to all good photography and you are very good at it...nice work.


Hi Francis,
Beautiful architecture and details,
Nice perpective and great saturation of colors and light,
a sharp and clear présentation.
compliments for HDR work.

Nice pov which creates a pleasing juxtaposition of lines and angles.The sunlight and blue sky is strong and pleasing also. The black border is appropriate and provides nice contrast.
