This is my favorite subject and Valletta is quite a good provider of narrow streets. Enjoy it (or not :D)
Valletta's streets and piazzas contain architecture ranging from early 16th century Baroque to Modernism. The city serves as the island's principal cultural centre and its unique collection of churches, palaces and museums attract visitors from around the world. When Benjamin Disraeli, future British Prime Minister, visited the city in 1830, he described it as "a city of palaces built by gentlemen for gentlemen," and remarked that "Valletta equals in its noble architecture, if it does not excel, any capital in Europe," and in other letters called it "comparable to Venice and Cádiz" and "full of palaces worthy of Palladio."

J'aime beaucoup l'effet entonnoir qui donne beaucoup de profondeur à cette composition. La contre plongée est du plus bel effet et le ciel un superbe arrière plan.

a wonderfully enticing perspective this and a subject that has become a bit of a trademark image for you. Superbly executed and full of charming detail and character. It captures the mood and atmosphere of Valletta perfectly.
Have a great weekend - regards Brian.

the long perspective is very nicely portrayed with the endless street almost devoid of people to disturb the ambiance.
Best regards Les.

i'm one that enjoy the almost empty road of the capital with the creative perspective to lead-in the eye on the end of it.I like the architectural style of the houses as the excellent light and colour management of the image.

Yes, I enjoy it.
If you ever come to Vancouver, don't get your hopes up and expect to get photos like this!!!!
Unless you're willing to walk down the back alley's of streets filled with garbage bins :) But I don't think thats the look you're going for.
But you certainly got what you're looking for here.
its amazing how the street seems to climb into infinity all the way up to heaven.
great perspectives, lines and depth

una strada stranamente vuota, sembra che gli abitanti abbiano abbandonato il quartiere.
Ottima la qualità e la profondità, migliorata dal taglio verticale.

That is another of your signature POVs, the alley with the rows of houses to the left and right, producing a superb DOF, while displaying a spot on light and shadow management. The colour tones are vibrant and the sharpness is fine. Well done

Intéressant cadrage vertical de cette ruelle étroite bordée de hauts bâtiments aux balcons variés.

A never ending street almost deserted, that makes for a very nice subject indeed. You have captured this street really nicely with a strong perspective.
It would of corse have been even better without the cars, but there is nothing you can do about that.
And by the way, don't believe Craig not to find any charming streets in Vancouver, there are some, although rare.
have a great weekend

A mesmerising narrow street scene in excellent pov which is perfect to keep the eye into perspective with wonderful immense details, superb depth which is accentuated by strong vertical convergence well flanked on either sides. Exposure is manageable where the delicious warm light and rich colors have boosted the visual quality and nicely set off by the blue sky. Awesome shot, Well done.
