View along the promenade at Sliema, looking toward St Julian's.
Sliema is a town located on the northeast coast of Malta. It is a tourist centre for shopping, restaurants and café life. The town 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 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 local residents.

hmmm...once again, i don't think we've seen this viewpoint before have we?
looks like a very rocky beach, but would still be great to go explore it.
excellent depth perception with the long lines on the left.
Malta seems to be a much larger Island than I previously thought!

Il doit être agréable de flâner sur cette promenade de bord de mer sous le soleil en admirant le paysage.
Amitiés et bonne journée.

one thing that I recall from our visit to Malta a few years ago was the lack of sandy beaches except for a few areas so this rocky beach is no surprise.
I do like the wavy shore line and the glimpse of parasols in the distance giving a nice perspective to the scene.

This is a nicely composed shot using the walkway and rail to lead the eye through the shot. The lighting and colors are great and the photo has nice sharpness.

La longueur de la plage donne de la profondeur à la scène. La présence des gens donne de la vie à l'image. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails, les couleurs des immeubles et de la plage. La bonne luminosité donne de belles teintes aux couleurs de l'image. Bonne journée.

Wow! this shot is a real eye-opener for me, I would not recognise this place if you placed me here blindfolded. It is nothing like the Sliema I remember. It is a completely different resort to the sleepy place I stayed in, a real victim of modernisation and the need to cater for the modern international tourist. A superbly captured image which has left me feeling slightly sad, but that's progress I suppose. TFS.

this promenade looks very attractive and interesting, living in one of the flats there must be quite agreeable. I like the long perspective of your composition and the balanced way in which the distant waterfront takes its place in the background. There's delightful clarity and fine, sunny, contrasting colours. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great evening,

Looks like a beach of Alexandria
Beautiful view but it was possible to underexpose a little bit

The yellow red colors of the esplande and bg buildings contrast well against the blue sky. Good sharpness and a fine high pov above the sea. The bg highrise looks strangely incongruous on the horizon. Maybe the town planners were out to lunch that day? The beachcombers on the rock platform add scale. Nice repetition of the lampposts at left. Tfs!
