A Luzzu ride in Marsamxett harbour, Valletta with a view of Manoel Island as BG.
Marsamxett Harbour, also referred as Marsamuscetto in many ancient documents, is the northern of Valletta's two natural harbours on the island of Malta, separated from the southern one (Grand Harbour) by the Valetta peninsula. To the north it is bounded by Gżira and Sliema as far as Dragut Point and extends inland to Pietà and Msida. It is generally more dedicated to leisure use than is Grand Harbour; there is a large yacht marina at Msida and tourist cruise boats operate from Sliema. Within the harbour and reached by a small bridge from Gzira, Manoel Island houses a yacht yard and the 18th century Fort Manoel.

Hi Francis,
Really nice warm color tones -- good PP work on this. The colors of the boat really stand out. I like your choice of framing. Have a nice weekend. Julie

this stands out well Francis the details and colurs realy work also the framing is perfect for the image nice one
tfs regards bryan

Hi Francis
a rich presentation that could easily be divided into two pictures.
a. the colored harbour cruise boat with a nice trail on silvery water.
b. waterfront wall and buildings of Manoel Island, with silvery water at FG and magnificent orange sky at BG.
the framed combination of both scenarios made a wonderful and inviting image.
