This is lovely!
Perfect composition and the choice to show this in high contrast sepia gives it the timeless feel of an old engraving.
I also think the frame is just right to compement the scene.
Really great image.
The Note is also interesting and informative - it is frustrating to see interesting places and not know where they are or their significance!

I really like this shot. The details in the church and surrounding structures are excellent. The person on the boat is placed perfectly in the frame IMO. I love the sky and the sepia tones in this shot. Very nice work Francis.

Beautiful shot of the Valletta landmark captured with wonderful DOF and the FG boat man with his perfect silhouettes makes beautiful FG texture which also creates nice DOF.
My best Wishes

A wonderful capture from the cityscape of Valletta, Francis!
I like the color tones in the picture.
The view is amazing especially because of the presence of the boatman.
The historic dome looks fantastic.
Well caught view!
