[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Senglea is a fortified city in the east of Malta, mainly in the Grand Harbour area. It is one of the Three Cities in the east of Malta. It has a population of slightly below three thousand people. The city is also called Civitas Invicta, because it managed to resist the Ottoman invasion at the Great Siege of 1565. The proper name is Senglea since the grandmaster who built it, Claude De La Sengle, gave this city a part of his name.

The island on which Senglea lies was joined by a land bridge to Cospicua during the time of the Knights of St. John and as a result, it became peninsular in shape. During the time of the Knights of St. John, Senglea was also used as a hunting area, and was known as L'Isola di San Giuliano.

Bom dia Francis,
One day absolutely perfect for a photo of this place with so much beauty and history. And you had know with your usual ability compose a great shot from an excellent POV.
Lovely landscape (what is a gray square on the houses? An advertising placard?).
Nice post.

Hi Francis,
The blues surrounding the city really intensifies the architectural designs and colors. The clear sky emphasizing the the two steep towers in the right of the image.

This must have looked a foremidable sight from attackers as they neared these walls.
Such immense look and feel.

Bonjour Francis Xavier,

Des couleurs éclatante avec ce ciel bleu. Un beau 16/9 pour ce paysage.

Hi Francis,

That is quite some impressive structure. I like the inclusion of sufficient water to give viewers a better sense of where the structure is situated. It is magnificent.

Best regards,

Greetings Francis Xavier,wonderful detailed & sharp panorama harbour view,your choice of angle shows the varied types of architecture,with the impressive dome of the Cathedral being very dominant.
I hope that the grey surface of the two buildings,one to the far left & the one just to the right of centre, will receive a surface colour to match the yellow gold of the surrounding buildings.
TFS Great shot.



Ciao Francis, great POV on fantastic fortified city, lovely composition, splendid light, excellent clarity and wonderful natural colors, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Hi Francis
Interesting note and nice picture of these strong walls.
The clarity is good and you show a fine and sober architecture.


Hi Francis...nice shot...excellent focus and exposure. Nice tones and colors.


Ola Francis
Raimundo is right...superb.
Good definition and a beuty of lines and colorsum abraço

Hello Francis, an excellent viewpoint to share this picture of Senglea.
The DoF is very good, so much detail to take in.
Unsure about those two areas of grey colour? Yet they do not mar the scene.
Tfs, regards Jean.
