This Luzzu is peeping from behind other boats at the Harbor of Marsaxlokk. Those eyes are watching me throughly taking the picture. They attracted my attention and wished to share this experience!

PP work: cropped to obtain this POV, adapted blurred filter around the luzzu, enhanced colors and framed.

Hello Francis,

The eyes gazing at your lense is not less than a thrill. You've beautifully composed this image. Nice vibrant colors, excellent luminosity and well focused motif. A wonderful shot, well done. Thanks for sharing.

Kind Regards,

Good morning FrancisXavier,

A pleasant idea to blur the esemble elements and unleash the important detail eye-catching!
It is only those blue eyes, great feeling sharing
Everything is said in your note.
very friendly way

Hi Francis,
Well composed using the primary colours and the blurring surrounding the central point.

Hi Francis...nicely composed shot. I like the eyes! Nice work.


A fantastic shot with an 'eye-catching' look, Francis!

Great details and superb isolation of subject using partial blurriness among the surrounding areas.
The light and contrasts are well managed, and exposure is simply amazing.
Nice show of lovely warm colors!

Kind regards,

  The fade, maybe a spot that captures the semi mm depth.
Color of the boats, like the colors of your artistic ceramics.
The smell of paint on the boat in storage.
The love for the maintenance and artistic decoration.

Hi Francis, really like the pov in this with the eyes peeing out. It looks like a lot of model boats with the focus just on the eyes. Fiona

Hi Francis,
Nice focus through the eyes who watching you,
Excellent POV. and sharp details in the FG of the Luzzu boat,
Nicely done.
