The colors of the Maltese sunset over the rural part of Malta. This shot was taken from a public garden in Mtarfa, the limits of Rabat, where most of the Maltese farms and rural ambient can be found.
PP work only consists in sharpening, cropping a small part of the original and re-seizing for TL.
ISO 800.

A Happy Week to all friends in TL.

Hi Francis,

Wow, what a great explosion of colors through this artistic formation of clouds, which go diagonally through this wonderful composition! I like the orange-golden colors with wonderful sharpness and from a nice POV. The street lamps add great mood into the work.

Very well done, my friend!

best regards,

Hi Francis

Striking warm cold colour contrasts between the orange sunset skies & the blue bg. Nice repetition of the 3 lamps at right with reasonable sharpness. Tfs!

The orange sky is fabulous Francis. I love how you composed this and anchored the scene with the street lamps. An awesome work. Cheers.

Bored is not a sunset. Where a day on the horizon a small cloud of red, etc..

dear Francis Xavier,
this peaceful atmosphere is excellent,
you made up this image with relatively low contrasted edition, it shows me original brightness and color saturation of this settled sunset view,
I especially like pale orange cloud and grayish landscape, this wide and high space looks so calm,
thank you for your beautiful shot,

hi francis
beautiful shy excellent blend of colours,good pov.

Hi Francis,

Amazing clouds, the blue and orange tones is beautiful.
Well composed and framed. Nice one!


Hi Francis,
The perspective lines in this image are wonderful, the lights, the hill shape, the coloured clouds, they all point to the disappearing point at the horizon. A fine composition and attractive colours of sunset.
