[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
In the fishing village of Msida, Malta, yesterday was en fete! They were celebrating the feast of their Patron Saint St. Joseph. It's quite a lovely festival and many people attend these festivities. All sorts of fireworks, band marches, street lights and the procession with a human sized statue of the Saint.

PP work: cropped original, adapted HDR to bring out the details of the smoke and the boats.

Hi Francis,
You have captured a very nice scene just at the perfect time with your PowerShot G12. I like the reflections in the water, which does include the boat. I can just see the power of thirds here. Keep up the good work and have a good week.

Wow! I think you've captured the whole feast in one photo! Great pov and dof with nice details even the reflections. Wonderful colors. Welldone, tfs.

Fantastic nocturnal colors with iso 125.

Beautiful reflections , good pov and timing.
I also like the elegant presentation.
Bravo ! C'est la fęte.

Excellent colors and reflections, very attractive photo with fireworks and fantastic lights

Hello Francis, a symmetrical shot; the reflections are near perfect.
I love the dense blackness of the dark night which aids the bright lights to appear even brighter and exciting.The smoke from the fireworks adds to the atmosphere, well done.
Excellent choice of framing.
Tfs, regards Jean.

What a stunning shot of the festivities. It is interesting to see how HDR enhances a night shot, although I think your image would have worked equally as well without it. The colours and reflections are wonderful and your cropping has made the perfect composition with that empty space of black water in the foreground. Great framing too. Well captured.


Hi Francis, this is just brilliant - what a night scene with great illumination - and the reflections in the water, even the star from he fireworks.Very well done as always - kindest regards Monika

Witaj!!! napiszę krótko : bardzo mi sie podoba ,pozdrawiam,Ewa

Wonderful nocturnal shot of a place we have seen in daylight but now has a different magic with lovely lights and reflections

Love the mood you have captured in this nocturnal shot, Francis!

Great focus and perfect details with amazing mirror-reflection of the decorated building.
The sharpness and POV are excellent, and fireworks add a beauty and charm into the scene as well.

Thanks for sharing.
