People leaving church at Marsaskala in Malta on a Sunday morning.
Marsaskala (M'Skala) is a sea-side village in Malta that has grown up around the small harbour at the head of Marsaskala Bay, a long narrow inlet also known as Marsaskala Creek. The bay is sheltered to the north by Ras iż-Żonqor, the south-east corner of Malta, and to the south by the headland of Ras il-Gżira.
The name comes from the words "Marsa" (meaning "Port") and "Sqalli" (meaning "Sicilian"). The village extends along both sides of the bay, and across most of Il-?amrija, a creek leading to Il-Ponta tal-Gzira.
The parish church is dedicated to Sant Anna (St. Anne).

Good Morning Stephen,
A fine viewpoint, where the steps create an irresistible path for us to see the church.
The people add a scenario and a sense of scale.
I do like how you have given a wide enough view to include the trees, which add a natural border and a softer ambience.
Have a lovely day, Bev :-)

quelle belle vue de cette église superbe avec la rosace sur la façade et l'amenée avec l'escalier de pierres superbe ensemble.
Bravo et amitié

Les escaliers envoient mon regard vers l'église ce qui donne de la profondeur à la composition. La présence des gens a un effet d'échelle de grandeur. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails et les couleurs de l'église. Une bonne gestion de la lumière intense qui ne nuit pas au rendu des couleurs. Bonne journée.

Fine capture of this small church. I like the simple limestone architecture specific to Malta. Well taken.

Excellent view up to nice small church. I like the arrangement with the green trees and the people in foreground. The red car adds nice contrast. You should try to clone the line on the rood (left side).
Very well done.

Good POV and composition.
Excellent colors and light.
I like rosace.

l'auto non dovrebbe far parte della composizione, ma in questo caso ci sta proprio bene grazie la colore rosso, che va ad aumentare l'attrazione visiva.

Hello Stephen. Malta and its magnificent buildings. Wherever I see, I see the great past of the island. The balanced composed photo pleases me very well - as well as the informative text.
Best rgds, Wolfgang.

Red jeep in fine contrast, both in colors and a modern vhicle against older archi.-style of the church's edifice, Stephen.
DOF and clarity rendered well, people added life to the scene.
have a nice weekend,
