This is another Luzzu with tools for fishing.
The design of the Luzzu, like that of another Maltese boat, the dghajsa, is believed to date back at least to the Phoenician times. The luzzu has survived because it tends to be a sturdy and stable boat even in bad weather. Originally, the luzzu was equipped with sails although nowadays almost all are motorised, with onboard diesel engines being the most common. Some luzzi have been converted to passenger carriers for tourists although the vast majority continue to be used as fishing vessels.

sei sempre pronto a cogliere il bello del mondo che ti circonda ritagliandone una fetta per farne belle composizioni.
Questa è particolarmente originale per il taglio assai ardito ma indovinato, di un soggetto che è noto, anche per avercelo mostrato te stesso, per i vivaci colori che lo caratterizzano.
Complimenti per la bella realizzazione.
Ciao e buon fine settimana

An expertly composed image with superb colours and clarity. I like the juxtaposition between the two boats and the presence of the buoys in the top right corner. The lighting is most attractive.

une belle composition bien cadrée,et des couleurs très agréables.
J'aime beaucoup le bords jaune de la barque qui forment un courbe dynamique.

You're capturing well this scene by a good compostion and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see these fishing boats with some primary colors and some fishing tools. It's also beautiful contrast with sea water. And, the boat's shadow projected to the water draws out an additional good effect in this image.

wow, what a nice tight framing here. Like your vertical framing to show this minimal composition. Nice colourful boat in FG with a nice yellow border. Like the depth and sharpness of it. Excellent work. Tfs.

bei colori e bella scelta del taglio, l'impatto visivo è immediato e piacevole.
Queste titpiche imbarcazioni offrono molte possibilità di scatto, dove spesso è possibile ripetersi, ma con buon occhio e un pò di fantasia, si riesce a dare sempre una versione nuova.

This is really well composed and cropped Daniel. The vivid, sunlit colours are really attractive and speak of summer days. Very nice shot. Warm regards rosemary

Superb warm cold color contrasts between the yellow, red and blue with vibrant colour and good saturation and density. Nice sharpness and effective tight framing in this well composed shot of the fishing boats. I like the reflection and the diagonal side of the boat starting in the bottom right corner leads the eye into the shot. Tfs!

a very elegant and lovely way to present these unique fishing boats, playing with perspectives, colours and details. You've made excellent use of the space of the narrow vertical frame. Even at first glance what we see seems comprehensive and interesting, the light is very agreeable and the rich and vivid colours create a wonderful mood. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great evening,

A crop which works perfectly to interest the viewers, to excite the imagination and to guide into the shot.
The details are sharp and the colours vibrant.
I like this!
