The picture shows facade of old warehouses near the Port of Valletta.Very picturesque and as you see colorful area.I associated the scene immediately with the Italian flag(ok. maybe the door in the middle isn´t totally white,but we can use a little bit our imagination:)
I processed the image in Photomatix,so it´s HDR.I think such old buildings just goes well with HDR treatment.
I enclose another picture of this area in the WS.
I hope you´ll like it!

a nice minimal composition here. Like the tri-coloured doors which are acted here as a rhythm. Very good colour tone and fine sharpness. A good one. Tfs.

Lep pogled na drvena vrata i prozore sa metalnim resetkama ...
Dobar trenutak snimka, kontrast, lepe boje.
Dobar rad sa lepom fotografijom u radionici.
Imajte lep dan, sve najbolje u novoj nedelji koja je pocela.
Nice view of wooden doors and windows with metal bars ...
A good time recording, contrast, beautiful colors.
Good work with a lovely photograph of the workshop.
Have a great day, all the best in the new week that started.

If the middle door would be painted white - this would be perfectly the Italia flag, Krzysztof.
Nevertheless, you had the best intention for taking this photo.
Good clear details, old facade wooden doors with peeled plaster walls shown in great technique.

spesso ci si incammina alla ricerca di soggetti dei quali si conosce la fama, soprattutto quelli di natura più panoramica, e poi ci si accorge di averne degli altri sotto agli occhi, i quali, però, spesso sfuggono alla massa.
Una buona conoscenza della tecnica compositiva può essere di aiuto, ma il tutto è legato al gusto personale e alla capacità di distinguere quello che è bello dal banale.
Camminando per l'isola hai incontrato questo bel soggetto e non ti sei fatto sfuggire l'occasione.
Poi la tua tecnica e il tuo buon gusto composiutivo hanno fatto il resto realizzando questa piacevole foto nella quale hanno un particolare rilievo composizione, simmetria, cura del dettaglio e colore.
Ciao e buona giornata

Well observed detail, is ture, they have the Italian flag. I like the textures of this image, well taken.
I had a great time there, hope you'll have too.

This is a cool sight, and I have to admit its a million miles from the warehouses that I might see in my home city! These are painted in a very pleasing pastel manner, and puts a much more pleasant feel to any industrial environment. Nice spot on the Italian flag too and the gentle slope in the foreground makes the whole scene so much more appealing.
Great shot, thanks for sharing.
All the best

love this! A superb observational shot that is cropped and executed superbly. HDR treatment perfect at bringing out the textures and detailing so attractively. Well done!
Have a good week - Brian.
Hansaphotos (6047) 2013-09-09 5:38
Very well seen and excellently executed. A fine Italian tricolore, we only miss a red Vespa in the foreground, haha. The walls along the facades reveals some attractive textures and is a nice addition to the delightful scene. Very nice work! Thanks.
Best regards, Erling

Hello Krzystztof ,
Oh yes , these three similar doors with different colors and a post in front of each of them , were an attractive subject . You've captured it very well .
I like the texures of the old walls , too .
gojo (1317) 2013-09-09 7:18
A photo completely in my taste!
Great framing, lovely colors, and soft, fine light.
lousat (64053) 2013-09-09 9:02
A great gift to your italian friends..ehehe..very nice and original capture whit the title in italian language too,a beautiful pic showing us these doors of old Valletta in a perfect quality of details and colors,i like it! Have a nice evening and thanks,Luciano
ourania (18506) 2013-09-09 12:12
again the workshop picture gives us a wider perspective on your theme and shows how well you can spot opportunities and create beautiful images by choosing and isolating the most interesting details. This is an aptly composed and framed picture that makes the repetition of similar patterns very rhythmical, delightful and intriguing. Apart from the obvious difference in the gates' colours it's fun to try and spot other points that distinguish them. The allusion to the italian flag is wonderful. You've brought out the textures really nicely. Great graphical work, congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely evening,

Skojarzyło mi się od razu z filmem ... o tym samym tytule.
Ładna subtelna kompozycja o delikatnych pastelowych kolorach.
Zastosowałeś Photomatixa tez bardzo subtelnie - nie widac, że to HDR - moze po chodniku i obdrapaniach na scianie, ale HDR jest tu taki jak powinien byc - nie przesadzony i zastosowany do uwypuklenia ciekawej faktury ściany. TFS
macjake (45556) 2013-09-09 18:59
the only think missing is some totally awesome local person wearing traditional attire - but thats more of a South America type of thing!
gotta love the HDR sharpness here, showing off all the textures and smaller-finer details, excellent subject for the processing.
very cool indeed, and i like the colors too.
jcpix (6504) 2013-09-09 19:22
I'm not sure if you're familiar with this phrase, but it best conveys how much I love this shot..."it's right up my alley!" It may sound over exuberant on may part...but wow, is this great! I wanted to immediately comment on it when I took a quick peek at TE earlier in the day while at work, but didn't have the time to truly sit back and enjoy the simple, but exquisite beauty that it is! :)
There is a ton of character that just oozes from this street, the textures are so vivid that I just want to brush my hand across the monitor to actually get a feel. Much like yourself and Craig, I find these kinds of old, rusted out and weathered subjects to be some of the most fascinating to photograph...and you lined up a doozie of one here! The subtle HDR treatment is just the right touch to amplify the rustic colors and detail...and the fact that this basically ends up being the colors of the Italian flag is just the cherry on top. :) Excellent! This goes right up there for me with your black & white Chicago picture from not too long ago. Impressive work my friend!
Enjoy the day ahead. Take it easy,
Indrasish (2349) 2013-09-09 21:04
Excellent shot dear.. I like the composition and your title.. This picture is simple but very attractive.. Nice colors and superb image quality too... As ever thanks for your informative note.. Very well done..

Zupelnie inne niz poprzednie a jednak rownie przyciagajace uwage zdjecie. Bardzo lubie takie stare budynki i kolory bram rzeczywiscie ciekawie sie komponuja ze scianami z ktorych odpada farba.
Jeszcze raz pozdrawiam i zycze milego wieczoru
bayno (18334) 2013-09-10 7:38
an HDR not at all intrusive .... in fact I would have exaggerated a little bit, if the main door had been white would be our national flag ;), fine detail and cutting...good work...
danos (78036) 2013-09-10 10:42
a really very nice and charmy scenery with the tricolore to dominating the scene.I like the excellent presentation with the different and contrasting colours of the old warehouses,to are really very effective.
Silvio1953 (105343) 2013-09-10 12:48
Ciao Krzysztof, like my flag, lovely composition, excellent clarity, wonderful colors and splendid light, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

ciekawe ujecie tych drzwi i to w roznych kolorach. Podoba mi sie tez w wykonaniu HDR ktory dodaje wspanialego akcentu temu zdjeciu. Bardzo ladna subtelna kompozycja. Bardzo mi sie podoba. Super zdjecie.
mjw364 (6142) 2013-09-11 3:35
Well composed and observed. Only a photographer's eye would find such a composition on the street. Shape, colour and symmetry. Well spotted.
mcmtanyel (5143) 2013-09-11 20:12
Of course I like it. The random colors of the walls are lovely. The three identical (in shape) doors of various degrees of repair accompanied by three hitching posts are portrayed eloquently in your composition.
abmdsudi (32471) 2013-09-11 20:48
A strong eye puller and effective play of strong lines, shapes and contrasting colors to greatest effect to attract attention. The aged and rustic features convey lots of its own charm, unique character and the feel of this antique place. A fine shot, and tfs. Congrats
williewhistler (9787) 2013-09-12 1:27
Hello Krzysztof, your HDR treatment has worked its magic here,very well done,one more reason why I must make the effort to master the process!
I do like the range of colours and crisp,sharp details in a well observed and beautifully presented scene.
I just wonder,did you consider a BW version?
My best regards Les.
adramad (30851) 2013-09-13 11:42
Once back from my vacation at the beach, I'm active again in these pages.
Sensational loved the composition of this original, ancient doors with their varied colors gives a great effect to the image, superb textures of these old walls.
Very nice range of colors which gives us this picture.
Magnificent both luminosity and sharpness.
Very well done.
I wish you a happy weekend.
fabbs99 (10998) 2013-09-13 11:47
I like the application of bright colors to the doors of the warehouses.Very nice perspective and good framing, nice colors and depth, excellent overall quality, as usual.Thanks for sharing.
tedesse (23996) 2013-09-14 3:02
Interesujaco przedstawia sie ten tercet:)
Ladny kadr i kolory, doskonala ostrosc.
eldancer1 (20690) 2013-09-14 7:46
I like your pov of those doors, and they look very old building. Good lighting and nice details. I do like the colors. Well done, tfs.
annjackman (15481) 2013-09-16 8:23
This is a very pleasing composition with the three coloured doors on the slope of the road. There are even three posts conveniently placed. The colours and shabby walls of the warehouses are interesting and illustrate an area of the Port of Valetta very well.
Excellent work beautifully presented.
Kind Regards, Ann

Pod moją nieobecność ominęło mnie to Twoje zdjęcie, a jest świetne, doskonała obserwacja i odpowiedni tytuł :) Sam też bym nie darował takiego widoku, pięknie wypatrzone
emka (64110) 2013-09-26 23:42
I jeszcze to. Świetnie wypatrzone te trzy bramy w róznych kolorach. Obdrapane mury ale jakże malownicze! Piekna prrezentacja.
Miłego weekendu M.
adores (30775) 2013-10-08 15:17
Funny that they are similar but with very different colours. I like the combination of colours and the textures of the old walls. Nice place!
adidas5nb (2851) 2013-10-22 19:44
as with so many of your frames,this 1 too is so very attractive just because you saw it perfectly in the 1st place.great graphic effect and i really like the slanting road and the worn down colors of the doors.

Super bon cadrage, des détails bien rendu ainsi que les couleurs, j'aime la version en WS, toute en perspective
