[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
An unusual color of the Luzzu. I think this is the only one in green! A rule is there to be broken and the owner of this fishing boat has chosen to do so!
It's a small luzzu with a cabin with aluminium windows (of course, all handmade) but still attractive because one's eyes is struck by this highlighted green.

Minimal PP work, just a little crop to center the windows.

Bonjour Francis Xavier
toute ta série de bateaux à Marsaxlokk est pimpante et plaisante! les cadrages minimalistes en renforcent l'impact qui plus est

alors que tu nous précises pour cette photo que le vert n'est pas une couleur habituellle pour les bateaux du coin je suis amusée de voir qu'il est assorti avec ma photo que le hasard a positionnée juste à côté!

Hello Francis,
I tried to translate to find out why you wre not credited with the critique above for this very good photo but it did not work well. I like this image very much. Excellent composition with lines and curves and rectangles, very pleasant colours and very well presented. Best wishes.

Hello Francis,
Nice view from the ship's color. An interesting feature of the decoration of the small bow. The stress contours are like.
Good work, TFS.

Bom dia Francis,

Wonderful vivid colors, excellent focus and crop, very nice frame.

Hi Francis,
It's always interesting and fun to place together the lines, shapes and bright colors in a frame and produce such a beautiful picture like this.
Nice placement of the decoration at bottom left and the 2 square windows.
Yes, it's very well presented.


Good Morning Francis,

Green is my favourite colour, how could I not be attracted to this!!
Excellent, sharp exposure and with a crop which adds a feel of the abstract to your shot. The composition is very well done, creating a strong f/g triangle and lines which gently converge. The parallel windows, in a differnt plane, appear to be peeping over the edge. I'm not sure that this sort of sensitivity can be taught!

My warm regards,
Bev :-)

Hi Francis
the Luzzus are an endless source for incredible images.
this special with the unusual colors is an awesome one. nice geometrical shapes decorated with lovely icons.
the glass windows add splendid reflections that are, for a change, not on the water.
best regards

Hi Francis,
A bit of a difficult photo. The many lines make it a little confusing. I am not sure where the boat end or starst. and I am not sure if these or the windows facing the front of the boat or the side. I am also not sure if it really to my liking, but do know that I like the way it is confusing me.

Incredible Francis. The bright color,crisp detail and sharp lines is just spectacular as always. A feast for the eyes. TFS, Lori

Simple but effective composition and color combination. I like your pov and it has a good dof with sharp details. Well done, tfs.

dear Francis Xavier,
a picturesque shot of another wonderful luzzu,
though main tone is not blue but green, the beautiful impression is quite same,
more over it looks suggesting rich forest to my eyes, it is so fine,
the composition is artistic and double small marks are very joyful here,
thank you for your excellent shot,

Hi Franics...nicely composed shot..the color and tones are great...


je cherche le secret des photos de Francis Xavier : couleur, cadrage, contraste netteté, j'aime beaucoup, je ne m'en lasse pas,

Another very nicely composed image with very tight framing.
The converging lines of the boat make for a fine presentation.

Hi Francis!
Another original composition, which shows the Luzzu with new colours and from a new point of view. Impressive details!...the little symbol of the swordfish is lovely :)Well presented.
ciao! Vanda

Hi Francis Xavier,
I always admire the vibrant colors that your boats have,so different from the mono color of boats in our marina's,which are either black,red & maybe a light blue,but a single color only.No passion I guess :-)
I like the boats lines,but its cabin seems oddly placed to my eye,it would appear that there is no room to manoeuvre around it to the bow?

A rarity Francis , you got it on your lens , be proud of this one , rules of traditional colors can be broken of course , the aluminum windows instead of wood that has to be unusual too , ha ha , i like the crop to show off the green more , saturation is bang on , well done my friend,

Hi Francis,
Very nice green colors and composition of this fishing boat,
good perpective and details,
sharp and clear picture.
very well done.
