Some colorful Luzzu lines. I found this line-up of luzzus very interesting as the lighting was very favorable and edges came out magnificently.
I wished to present again our unique Maltese colorful boat to everyone to admire and enjoy.
I treated the original with HDR to enhance colors and to obtain even exposure while boost the light.

Hi Francis,

We recognize easily your signature here!
Strong colors, moored boats, vertical format...Malta has such unique luminosity! I like your artistic composition using the lines so nicely.


Awesome composition of strong but harmonious colors. Good dof with sharp and crisp details. Very well done, tfs.

The details are excellent, nice reflections dancing along the boats.

Hi Francis,

You're capturing well this colorful boats by a good angle and excellent crality/tone, so it's impressive to see the sequence of the boat with five colors(red, blue, yellow, green and brown) which is at anchor in the harbor. It's impressive in edge of boat, too. And, the shadow projected to the water draws out a additional good effect for the entire image.

Hi Francis

Good vertical framing with the man nicely positioned on the bg vanishing point, making good use of linear perspective & repetition of the boats. Superb colour & sharpness. Tfs!
