Hi Francis
Creative POV where you nice shown the Luzzus layers with amazing clarity and vibrant colors and its glossy reflection is outstanding with good textures imprinted on it.
Have a Nice Weekend

Very beautiful photo with unbelievable sharpnes and overall quality

Nice Francis.. nice tight crop and close-up, showing some fine detail. I love the little bit of water showing with squiggly reflections!

Bom dia Francis,

Well you're back to the theme of Maltese boats, which is a great and endless theme. I liked the format, colors and beautiful reflections. And the nice lighting too.

Hi Francis...you have a nice sense of composition. You did a good job with the colors and reflections...good work.

I love the horizontal lines in this image almost abstract and yet enough of these boat to indentify them as such.
Very nice composition

Hello Francis,a lovely composition of the boats; the tight crop works really well.The bottom l/h/ corner with the water is perfect as it accentuates the colour and pattern of the boats.
The horizontal lines contrast beautifully with the vertical prow of the fg boat.
Tfs, regards Jean.

Simple but effective composition. I like the colors, it has a good dof with nice details. Well done, tfs.

Another fantastic shot. Vibrant color, good reflections, nice symmetry of the boats, great pov and compostion. Well done! TFS, Lori

Nice rich colours beautifully composed

Impeccable framing/pov with such a beautiful abstract artwork emerging from this composition. Love the banding of colors and how they reflect on the water. Awesome square crop and neat presentation as always.



Hello Francis Xavier,

Beautiful colors animate this image Maltese.
generous fine detail.
Another fine catch for your viewing pleasure.
Beautiful reflections, Bravo and TFS.
Regards, have a nice Sunday.


This is such an amazing closeup capture from Maltese traditional boats, dear Francis!

You have mastered the shots concerning this subject.
Great sharpness and perfect color harmony.
The POV is well chosen and exposure is well handled which is the main factor in getting such shots nicely.
Well taken!

Thanks and regards,
