Hi Francis

A superb wide angled panoramic view & the bigger picture did not disappoint. Excellent high vantage point with good sharpness & framing. The pastel colors work well here. Tfs!

Excellent Panoramic view, the POV and DOF is well pronounced. The composition dividing the coastline to highlight the slopes is well chosen. Good job here.

Hello Francis,
The beaches of both bays have rusty look, I believe those are minerals and good for health. Two different levels of water is interesting feature of this panorama. Nicely chosen PoV that provides logitudinal depth. Such a fantastic post card. Thanks for sharing.
Best Wishes,

Hi Francis,

Mirror Image of beaches of two bays that look so good, Nicely chosen PoV for this panorama that provides a fantastic magazine quality image. Thanks for sharing.


Hello Francis

A stunning result of your POV. I like the separation of the two bodies of water. The best I think is the lone boat in the water on the right. This image here needs to be framed and hung in a gallery. Nice work


When looking at the thumbnail of this landscape shot, it appears to be a "face" with prominent eyes, Francis!

The larger version is wonderful and colors are simply lovely in it.
The sharpness and POV are excellent, and a black frame suits well to the scene.
Good control on light as well.

Thanks and regards,

Hi Francis,

Excellent panoramique view of Malta, I like very much the two level of the waters. Were in the middle looks like volcanic rock, the color itself looks terrible. A real gem of composition, thank you for sharing.
My best regards.

Another good work Francis

Good sharpness and very well composed and I love textures specaialy of water.
I will never say it is an HDR...i like the real appeareence of the image.
um abraço

Hello Francis,an excellent PoV to look down on both sides of the slopes and reveal the sea to us.
The large version really does do your shot justice.The colours are beautiful.The details that can be seen in the LV are delightful,especially the lone yacht in the bay.
Tfs, regards Jean.

Hi Francis,

Simply amazing this large version!
What a great panorama so wild and naked. The grey mountains stand out against the limpid blue sky and water.
Very nicely done!


Hi Francis....beautiful panoramic shot....very dramatic. Your light and tones are great but mainly the composition is what is so unusual...nice work.


Hi Francis,
Beautiful wide angle panorama composition,
another good ppwork in HdR treatment,
good tone of colors and light,
Excellent point of view and details in LV.

It sounds like you are also a bit of a mountaineer Francis. It is to our benefit because this is another fine panoramic shot. You certainly have a warmer climate for all year round photography. It was 20 below this morning. Nice shot. Keep em coning

Hi Francis
Another amazing panoramic work where you showed twin lakes with very good PP work to combine the shots captured with superb DOF and details.
Best Wishes

Belíssima panorâmica. Cores e contexto com qualidade perfeita!
