[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
No, it's not a kind of visual artwork that counterparts to psychedelic rock music, not a concert poster, album cover or a kaleidoscopic swirling pattern but a simple reflection of a LUZZU in the harbor of Marsaxlokk, Malta.
Being a sunny day the rippled reflection produces a galore of colorful shapes and patterns.

I wish everyone a colorful and peaceful Sunday.

Hi Francis!

Good saturated colour (that would be an understatement here) with superb reflections & effective tight framing. Nice warm cold color contrasts between the red & blue. The Luzzu boats always look great. Good to include the back of the luzzu too. Tfs!

Bom dia Francis,

Fantastic reflection, colors, light, contrast and sharpness!
Excellent work very well framed and presented.


(*) A colorful and peaceful Sunday to you too!

Bom dia Francis,
Great array of colors, near the doors of perception as preached the apostles of the psychedelism.
Terrific warm colors and esquisite framing.

Ciao Francis, fascinating reflections with fantastic colors, splendid light and excellent clarity, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Hi Francis, I congratulate you on this amazing picture with golden, green and blue colors forming a great abstract. Well composed presented. TFS

Yes, it is psychedelic, total abstract painting with typical colours from Malta, well seen

Love the array of colors which completes the picture so beautifully against a thick black frame, Francis!
Great details and nice management of light and exposure.
Good sharpness and well caught clarity.
Nice work!

Thanks and regards,

Hi Francis.

Now thats a lively image, stunning mix of vivid colours amoungst the ripples, very well seen and taken Francis, one to hang on the wall i reckon. TFS

Stv :0))

Hi Francis,
Very nice abtract composition and reflection,
Excellent point of view and saturation of colors,
excellent shot of the réflection of the Luzzu boat ,

I grow up in the 60s but never had LSD. But friends would describe their psychedelic experiences and I always imagine them to be like this. Yours is more beautiful and colorful! Love the blending of colors and good saturation. Very well done, tfs.

Your reflections continue to intrigue and fascinate with great clarity and colour. Nice job

Hello Francis,

The disturbed reflections create an interesting palette of saturated colors with funny forms. This is a well seen and done composition.

Best regards

Hi Francis
splendid natural kaleidoscope of colors and shapes. this photo is very attractive, eye catching and artistically presented.

Hello Francis,WOW is all I can say!
What a find,just the kind of reflections that I would like to see for real.
Even if it has an abstract appearance,it is still recognisable as your work.
Good presentation.

Yup, LOVE this one!! I like the deep saturation of the colors, and the strong contrasts. Fantastic abstract. You could print a book of your great Luzzu reflection photos!
