From this street balcony in Valletta, you can see a Sliema over the bay.
Sliema is a town located on the northeast coast of Malta. It is a centre for shopping, restaurants and café life. Tas-Sliema is also a major commercial and residential area and houses several quality hotels. Tas-Sliema, which means 'peace, comfort', was once a quiet fishing village on the peninsula across Marsamxett Harbour from Valletta. Now Tas-Sliema and the coastline up to neighbouring St. Julian's constitutes Malta's main coastal resort; as a result, Sliema has been ringed with modern apartment blocks and become engorged with traffic in recent decades causing protest from the Sliema Residents Association.

great perspective and new,original view on Sliema!
I like your idea to include a part of the balcony and the blue door frame.
And again I have to mention the format of the image,which really suits the photographed subject.
Have a good day

Amazing vertical composition and framing. I like the contrast between yellow and blue colours - fine effect. Colours ante splendid. I like the architecture of this place ( the balcony and house )
Have a nice day!

Daniel, well-chosen bookmark framing with strong geometric elements, leading us over the water into the city. Nicely seen.

Quite an original view of Sliema, seen in the distance across the bay. The foreground is like a composition on its own of straight lines, diagonals, shadows and colours. Nicely seen and well done.

well chosen this very tight frame with the creative perspective to lead-in the eye on the sea.Excellent the light and the colour management as the contrast of the colours.

its cool to see how compact and dense the city is way into the bg!
and the colors of course are superb, blues and yellows always make magic together.
and i also like the second black iron rod, it smartly creates depth even though its so simple. good shot!!

I really like the format of this image! The narrow crop works really well. Great geometry and lovely colours.

Good idea for this verical view, original shot and interesting result with these colors and light.

This is a very cool shot, the extra tall vertical format works very well for this composition, a well tought out composition. Beautiful colors, good light, and clarity. It makes me feel relax with this warm sunny atmosphere. The shadows of the railing also adds nice contrast to the balcony.

Une très bonne idée de cadrage vertical qui donne une photo spectaculaire et belle.

The vertical frame suits perfectly and emphasises the height and tallness of the subject. Good sharpness and a nice warm cold color contrast between the blue and yellow. Excellent sharpness and graphism. The sidelight has produced good shadows. Tfs!

a lovely way to show both the facade of the house and the modern town across the bay. You've managed to arrange all the elements in the narrow frame in such a way that viewing is comprehensive and comfortable and the interaction between warm and cold colours is most delightful. I love the well moderated brightness of the light and the intensity of the graphical shadows. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely week,

Nice graphic design type lines and shapes. Very sharp and clear with great colours too. The crop emphasises the shapes and lines well. The contrasting cityscape in the distance provides the depth for the eye.

con un taglio molto originale hai valorizzato molto bene i colori solari di questa bella città.
Il taglio è tanto più indovinato perchè accompagna le strutture dell'abitazione trasformandole in una bella cornice che aiuta a concentrare lo sguardo sulla città, sui colori del mare senza per questo mettere in secondo piano il piacevole accostamento di colori della facciata della casa.
Una ottima idea, realizzata al meglio.
Ciao e buona domenica
