A flight of eighty odd steps through the hotel gardens leading to the exit. A long haul whenever you wanted to visit the close-by city of Valletta, which is partly pedestrianised and open to residents' vehicles only.

looks decidedly palatial these steps. Looks fairly new and well cared for though and I can think of worse walks. I would never have guessed it was Malta, but it is a fair few years since I was last in Valletta. Nice capture.
Have a good week - B.

Good Morning Stephen - Composition wise I think this is a fine shot but due to the very strong and contrasty light, I think the detail on the LHS of the shot have been blown out a bit. I would be inclined to try and bring out a little more detail in those areas if possible.
The hotel has a lovely garden to look at while you climb all those steps!

Le regard suit naturellement les marches dans l'image, ce qui lui donne beaucoup de profondeur. Pas une âme en vue ce qui doit être assez rare. La lumière est superbe.

great to see your photos again on TE.
so this is a view we don't normally see from Malta, and Malta itself has been a popular destination for TE residents lately :)
lots of warm sun, lots of golden colors and oranges.
looking forward to more of your photos from here, this is a good start.
have a great day

Le nombre de marches donne de la profondeur à la scène. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails, les couleurs du jardin et des marches. La bonne luminosité fait ressortir les couleurs. Bonne soirée.

This is an impressive staircase, with very long runners. I placed the photo in the group theme, Memorable Staircases. I think I recently saw a documentary of Floriana and this particular hotel was mentioned.

Very nice view up to the garden stairs. Excellent light and very good light and color contrast.
Very well done.

Hello Stephen. Malta has a lot of Mediterranean flair. It is a European country with historical points of contact with Africa and the Orient. The beautiful staircase with cypresses on either side is a great eye catcher. Best composition.

This reminds me a lot of the south of Spain. I love that dry, sun-bleached architecture. Wow, 80 steps, I bet you got fit traipsing up and down into and out of the city. The gardens look delightful and I like the play of light and shade.
Nice work, thanks for sharing, have a great day

Fine capture of the sunlit steps and the surroundings. The various elements combine to make a really harmonious and pleasant composition. It would be lovely, I believe, to spend a few days at this beautiful place.
Thanks for sharing and have a nice evening.

splendida scalinata, sembra molto assolata, non credo sia molto piacevole farsi tutti quegli scalini con il sole che batte così forte.
Bella inquadratura e ottima profondità, mi piacciono i colori.

Quelle belle réalisation symétrique avec cet escalier au milieu de ce jardin qui paraît superbe
Bonne luminosité et perspective

a very inviting flight of steps, climbing them must be quite comfortable and the surroundings are lovely. I like how you composed this view, with an impression of symmetry and effective balance. Perspective and depth are superb, the sunshine and the colours very delightful. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great day,
