Bom dia Francis

Love the striking warm cold color contrast here between the man's red shirt & the blue sea & sky. Good sharpness & well composed. Tfs!

Bom dia Francis,
The HDR here produced a curious effect on the waves that have become solid.
The set is, however, of great beauty and harmony.
I really liked this photo,

Nice view over the walls, had the fisherman not his red shirt he would have been forgotten out! Good composition!

Hola Francis,
That's a lovely snapshot that presents a combination of both warm and cool tones. The luminosity is great and fine details. Red shirt of the fishing guy is eye catching. Beautiful composition, well done. Thanks for sharing.

Hi Francis,
Beautiful landscape from Ta Xbiex,
Excellent ppwork in HDR. and square format..
Beautiful with the fisherman and point of view of Capital city Valletta and architecture,
I like the form of the cloud , voilier and colors too.
a well presented composition..all is beauty..

Bonjour Francis Xavier,
Il a beaucoup de chance ce pêcheur d'être seul face à une telle vue...
Il a devant lui le plus beau des paysage...
Un panorama historique merveilleux, réhaussé d'un ciel nuageux juste ce qu'il faut pour faire clore toutes les beautés construites au bord de la mer...
Magique, merveilleux, grandiose, somptueux, un endroit de rêve, j'espère que ce pêcheur tient bien en secret ce lieu providentiel...
Merci de nous offrir ce petit moment de bonheur

I think most fishermen just want to be alone! It's not important if they catch fish, for my anyway I just like the solitude. Awesome pov and it has a good dof with sharp details. Wonderful colors. Well done, tfs.

Hello Francis.

Hi Francis,
Just fantastic scene here. Nice lighting and HDR treatment. Good natural colors and well composed !! TFS Julie

once again you have produced a beutiffull image from myfavorite island
tfs regards bryan

An amazing scene you have caught in this high-quality shot, Francis!

I like the mesh-like light and shadow casted on the rock beside the hobby fisherman.
The view at far is simply beyond imagination, looks a part of fantasy land.
Well caught colors and clarity with nice exposure.

Great going my friend!

Best regards,

Hi Francis
wonderful seascape. well captured and composed in a square format. the lonely fisherman is well placed in the composition in a fine balance with the lone boat. beautiful sky over the impressive architecture of Valletta.

Hi Francis,
An interesting sky with the light and dark clouds, the buildings are nice and sharp, the fisherman is nicely positioned in the frame, the colours are well saturated - it all adds up to a very attractive image

Hi, Francis. The lonely fisherman is enjoying the beauty of the scenery and having fun.Great POV with nice hDR effect enhancing the details in this picture. Good composition of cool blue colors of the sky and water contrasting with warm colors of the fortress and Basilica. Cheers.

Hi Francis,

This is very interesting composition , especially with the fisherman and his line seeming in interaction with the mast of the sailboat.
The movement of the waves as the one of clouds in the sky render nicely animation and life of the scene. Very well done!


The fishing rod points the way to the city walls, yacht and city.
Nicely composed and great colours.
