A digital manipulation of Marsaxlokk harbor. I opted some use of filters from Photoscape. The most prominent one is the Colored Pencil filter. I adapted HDR with three photos and did a montage with the colored pencil photo. I obtained this result which I liked and am sharing with you.

Hello Francis,
And so you created a fabulous work of art. I can imagine what a print of it on canvas will look like. If this were mine I would definitely have it up on the wall - and proudly so. It is just beautiful with the wonderful colours, depth and composition. Well done my friend.

Bom dia Francis, again neighbors ... ;o)
But just because you to produce this beautiful stamp had used a series of catches together by HDR system and some good filters from Photoscape.
But in the end, the last word was the Artist that you are.
Already in my case and at this masterpiece of nature, just tried to be faithful.

bom dia Francis
A world of color , good sharpness and beauty. Good reflections and interesting perspective given so much details

um abraço

Hi Francis, it has certainly come out very colourful and detailed. I like the way all the old girls are on one side of the harbour and the more modern boats on the other. Fiona

I'm not a keen fan of too many 'arty' filters, Francis, but I have to admit this is an exception.

The subtlety of your post processing has made this a really very strong eye catching shot.
Obviously this was already a well composed shot with strong vibrant colours and crisp focus throughout the frame, and I have to commend you on your work both at the composition stage and the processing stage.

Neat work,


Ciao Francis, lovely composition with beautiful boats, fascinating reflections, splendid light and fantastic colors, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Hi Francis.

An interesting result with the effect chosen, the boats pattern is clearly repeated throughout the scene, the foreground light source within the water has much attention. tfs

Your PP work on this scene really achieved a very artisitc result of a realist painting. Excellent use of filters and HDR to create this beautiful final image.


You did a wonderful job in creating this post! It look more like a painting than a photograph. Love the colors. Very well done, tfs.

My first thought was it is a poster. Excellent result of your manipulation, perfectly done

You have produced a fine 3 d shot as a result of the hdr and nicely saturated colour. Nice job

Hi Francis,
Nice presentation of the treatment in HDR with a colored pencil filter,
Nice reflection of the cloud in the water and saturation of colors too,
A beautiful caught of view of all these boats in Marsaxlokk harbor,
Excellent POV. and DOF.. too.
nic PPwork too, ...Michel

Hi Francis,
A beautiful shot of the harbour. Very colourful. The processing has made this look like a drawing.

This is like a bright painting
The image counts
This is very interactive

Hello Francis, the 'coloured pencil'effect works really well on this scene from Malta.
There is so much detail to absorb, such a good DoF.
Excellent work.
Tfs, regards Jean.
