Back to the colored port!
Marsaxlokk is about 35 minutes from Valletta by public bus No. 81. The village is approached via a long, narrow, straight road with vineyards on both sides.The bay is at the south-east end of the island and is memorable for the many colourful, traditional fishing boats called luzzu . Tourists visit the town for the picturesque photo opportunities of the bay filled with colourful fishing boats, plethora of seafood restaurants and the very busy Sunday market that sells everything from fish, local produce and groceries to souvenirs,clothing and footwear.
PS: it was in my intention to leave the horizon line bent, hope it's ok.

il colore intenso di queste barche contrasta in modo deciso con il paesaggio circostante e crea un punto d'interesse a cui è impossibile sfuggire.
Un altro bello scatto che ti sei portato dietro dal tuo recente viaggio.

Another photograph of these boats and equally beautiful. The colours are amazing and the foreground graphic and eye-catching.
Have a nice weekend

It is very attractive this boat with its saturated colours, which make it stand out well from the background. I like the point of view and the excellent clarity.

one thing I remember about Malta was the colourful little fishing boats and this beautiful shot captures the mood and beauty of this glorious little haven superbly. POV and execution here are just perfect and the result an attractive and striking image, that I love. Well done!
Wishing you a great weekend - Brian.

Super shot of these colourful fishing boats. But why did you feel it necessary to boost the saturation of the blues so much (presumably using "Selective Colour" in Photoshop)? I suspect the scene was colourful enough without digital "help"! Otherwise lovely.

Une jolie composition verticale avec cette belle barque typique dont les couleurs attirent le regard.

I don't think this is over-saturated. Usually, yellow is the first color to show evidence of over-saturation. However, I do think this image has a blue color cast, easily removed by adding yellow in photoshop. You can see the blue violet color in the shadows on the white sail. Those shadows should be grey. Possibly a slight magenta cast too. Again easily removed by adding green. Good sharpness and nice reflections with wonderful repetition of the colourful fishing boats. Tfs!

A great viewpoint and composition, so many interest playing in this image enough to get you all twisted but the delightful boat stands above the rest and all together it is a sunny recipe for feeling good. Great shot! You just get drawn into the image. Congrats
