A lovely panorama of the Msida Marina, the biggest yacht Marina on the Island. Behind is the village of Ta'Xbiex and the tall building in the back, the Portomaso skyscraper.
It was a heavy cloudy day but sunlight passed from some space and highlighted the buildings.
This is my contribution to the theme 'Panoramas' which I really like!

PP work: three photos making this panorama using Nikon's Panorama Maker, adapted slight HDR

Hi Francis!
Really this is a lovely panorama and I love the sunlight through the gray clouds. The sea with the reflections seems a mirror.
Congratulations Francis on this clear composition; an excellent contribution to the Friday theme.
Ciao and nice WE! Vanda

Hi Francis.

I like the clinical look to this, all crisp clean and clear lines. The tones of the water in contrast to the buildings is so pleasing, so is the movement of clouds captured. The light has been a friend of your indeed. Have a good weekend. tfs

stv ;o))

Hi Francis,
What a Beautiful panorama of the Msida Marina!
Excellent composition and presentation,
great POV. an DOF. with a sharp details,
Excellent Large Version too..
colors , contrast and light are amazing.

Vivere in Sardegna molto bello.
Ma in alternativa scegliere 6 anni a Malta.
Fotografia e storia e tanta voglia di vivere.
La nostra bandiera 4 moti in croce San Giorgio.
La splendida croce militare.
Orizzonte stretto che raccoglie uno dei porti turistici .
Un esempio di saggio utilizzo delle risorse economiche .

Very nice view Francis - overall a sharp, well stitched panorama. There are very slight variations in the exposure most noticeable in the sky, but I think this is a good bit of work ;-)


Hi Francis
excellent panorama picture of the Msida Marina. the wide perspective is awesome. good composition of horizontal layers of different interest: the impressive marina, the sky line of the city and the dramatic sky. the light is well handled and the colors natural.
wonderful entry to Friday’s theme.

Beautiful wide panorama, good entry to Friday’s theme, great DOF, detailed photo

Hello Francis

One of the best I have seen today, even the large version is awesome. I need to do some photo stiching myself. Not enough time in the day. Yours is awesome. Thanks for sharing


What a wonderful panoramic scene you have capture from your homeland, Francis!

Great details and perfect POV with superb sharpness and clarity.
The DOF is excellent and contrasts are really eyecatching within the scene, indeed to the fact that light and exposure are very well handled.

A great entry to Friday's theme!

Have a nice weekend.
