This is a picture showing the most picturesque and colorful part of Republic Street,the main street in Valletta.The most charming part of the street(but also many other streets in Valletta) are typical and iconic for Malta wooden,closed balconies.They definitely define Maltese urban landscape and...proveide really good opportunity to take some interesting photos.

a shot that has so much to look at and all captured magnificently. The atmosphere and beauty of this part of Valletta are encapsulated superbly in this fine image. A memorable image of a memorable place. Well done!

One of the many elements on this "busy" picture, is the lamp-post hand on a wire - I found it only when looking carfully on details here.
Fantastic clear street view from above, colorful verandas on right and a very good depth when looking down to the road.

your fine series of shots has reawakened my desire to visit Malta again,on our first visit Gladys was eaten alive by the mosquitoes so I may have to buy her some better insect repellant..
This is such a lovely representation of the City,lovely colouring and immaculate detail,thank you.

I wonder if this is a hdr picture, because the clarity you've achieved along this narrow street of Valetta is outstanding. A well considered, simple and solid composition that allows us to enjoy the most vibrant and fascinating play of architectural details all over the facades. It's so intriguing to imagine daily life behind these picturesque, colourful balconies. I like very much the soft colours and the interaction between the prevailing beige and blue tones. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely day,

Ciekawy urbanistyczny pejzaz. Podoba mi sie asymetryczna kompozycja z kolorowymi balkonami po prawej i ulica po lewej. Pastelowe kolory - domyslam sie, ze to efekt uzycia techniki HDR?

Before heading off to work this morning, I just HAD to stop and give you bonus points for this one!
did you take this from a walking bridge or something?
love the sharpness, the details, the splashes of color from the charming balconies, and the wires too!
very cool scene.
and its hdr too right?

Great work and intriguing lively scene, I think you must have taken this from the best spot opposite revealing the authentic charm of this old place, its unique designs in the traditional colours. Indeed the perspective and depth are great with the angular lines lead emphasizing the scale size and space so well. The clarity looks pleasant and soothing in soft coloring and abound of details around, its lovely that you spotted specks bright vivid colours to trigger the eyes as effective anchors to the scene. A fine photo works filled with a sense calmness yet it's so eye catching. Well done, Congrats.

I love those wooden balconies. So I can't imagine a finer scene for a fan of this architectural addition that this, I have never seen so many in one place. What is even cooler is the variety of colors of them against the soft tone of the sandstone walls.even though I imagine Valletta as a smaller and laid back place, this angle you chose gives the impression of the hustle and bustle of a place like new York.Brilliant scene that just stretches off into the distance, nice one may friend!!
All the best from Ireland

Urokliwe te małe drewniane balkoniki, każdy na swój sposób nieco odmienny i faktycznie bardzo ciekawe miejsce na plener fotograficzny. Pokazałeś urok tej ulicy w ciekawym kadrze, technicznie oczywiście też super

ujna foto apparentemente un po' confusa ma che in effetti č una efficace rappresentazione del particolare aspetto della cittą della Valletta con i suoi variopinti e caratteristici balconi che sono una delle pregorative notevoli di questa localitą.
Una ripresa nella quale il tele č protagonista e grazie al suo aiuto i piani si confondono in una confusione voluta e ben rappresentativa dell'anarchia architettonica della cittą.
Ciao e buona serata

Niesamowita ulica - fantastyczny widok - ująłes to z fantastycznego POV - dzieki temu mogę zobaczyc jak jest niezwykla i kształty i koloryt zadziwiaja.
Super, że to pokazałeś - nie wspomnę juz, że kompozycyjnie, jakosciowo - SUPERB

What a crazy, chaotic entanglement...and I love it! :) I first thought this was a picture from Marseille, the view looking down to the Canabiere from the train station....very similar layout at first glance. This is really great, the atmosphere derived from this compressed viewpoint makes it all look and feel so energetic(no pun intended). Even without a visual of people, there's a lively vibe to this shot...and also some curious mystery as to what's taking place behind all of the facades.
The colorful, closed balconies sure pop against the otherwise muted tones...and good for you to be so determined to get the sky to work in your favor too! :) A picturesque street indeed...I see so many photo's that could be taken here...must have been tough to walk away, yeah? What is that tall, white pole in the upper middle of the frame behind the buildings...looks like a gigantic ships mast? Awesome shot my friend, already a fantastic series of pics from Malta. Enjoy the day ahead.

Excellent presentation of this jungle of balconies. I just love the chaotic charm of this streetscape and the different colours in which the balconies are painted.
During my visit of Malta I was struck by the many beautiful balconies. A similar feeling I got during my visit of Tbilisi. A different style but again exquisite wooden balconies.
Best regards, Paul
mcmtanyel (5219) 2013-09-12 20:27
I find it interesting that all the buildings are the same color. It's only the balconies that have different colors. The photo is chaotic, yet orderly, just like fractals.

This is almost incredible all these houses with balconies, this is almost a puzzle.
Excellent depth and perspective.

Ciao Krzysztof, great view of lovely Street with fantastic balconies, wonderful colors, fine details and splendid perspective, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio
eldancer1 (20772) 2013-09-13 7:48
Wow! That's a lot of apartments on top of one another and it looks like there is not uniformity in design. Good lighting and nice details. Well done, tfs.
divail (7896) 2013-09-13 13:53
J'aime beaucoup cette série colorée de balcons fermés. Cette rue est vraiment intéressante, et le point de vue, en hauteur, nous la fait survoler en mettant justement l'accent sur ces beaux balcons.
GiovanniG (2315) 2013-09-13 19:26
Splendid street scene of the Republic Street. Full of details and color. Reminds me of Naples.
Warm regards and thanks,

Interesujaco prezentuja sie te wykusze.
Fantastyczny POV i kompozycja, super kolory i ostrosc.

rzeczywiscie przepiekna ulica i te imponujace balkony. Bardzo mi sie podobaja. Wyglada to bardzo fajnie i raczej chyba niespotykane. Nie natknelam sie na taka ulice gdzie s indziej. Pieknie to ujales pokazujace te charakterystyczna architekture tej ulicy. Oh! warto byloby to zobaczyc, no ale... Dzieki za pokazanie tak wspanialego zdjecia. Serdeczne dzieki za odp. oraz serdecznie pozdrawiam i zycze milego WE,
rychem (13628) 2013-09-14 10:52
Te maltańskie balkony sa przecudowne, chyba nigdzie nie ma takich charakterystycznych, punkt widzenia z góry to jest to, co trzeba, bardzo dobrze ustrzelone zdjęcie
fabbs99 (11102) 2013-09-14 20:14
Nice colorful shot from the Vallettan street.I appreciate the wooden balconies.Excellent light and colors.Superb brightness and sharpness. Well done.
serp2000 (33099) 2013-09-14 20:33
I have read about these Arabian balconies in Valetta, then Daniel shared similar photo from this island. Malta is my old dream, but I don't have the time for visit this place. Always somewhere.
Have a great Sunday!
cornejo (22496) 2013-09-15 12:26
Witaj Krzysztof, a warm greeting after a few days of absence for a week getaway north of Portugal, sister country on the Iberian Peninsula. Very good picture of this interesting view of the interesting street, very well captured in this beautiful image, with very good quality. Excellent and interesting job perfectly done, congratulations my friend. Thanks for sharing this beautiful work.
Good night and happy week.
Best wishes from southern Spain.
adramad (30905) 2013-09-15 13:05
A striking picture for this amalgam of balconies in all the facades of the houses, which overlook the street so special, sensational POV, which offers a nice touch of them, especially in the houses we see more first plane.
Beautiful colorful natural.
Magnificent both luminosity, as sharpness.
Very well done.
I wish you a happy start to the week.
ktanska (22654) 2013-09-16 11:54
A good viewpoint for showing hilly city of Valletta. Those painted balconies are so typical ot town. Especially the row of varying colours on the right is charming.
Indrasish (2351) 2013-09-16 21:35
Excellent shot here.. Wonderful composition.. I like the perspective.. Superb image quality and nice colors too.. Very well done.. and thanks for attaching an interesting note with it..
Good morning and have a nice day..
marina7 (7160) 2013-09-17 10:26
what I like in this photo is that despite the obvious tightness and chaos of city life it looks in perfect order somehow. The colorful balconies aligned along the wall bring in so much charm here, especially the blue ones which repeat the color of the sky. Very nice work.
SnapRJW (23602) 2013-09-22 9:04
Hi Krzysztof - This is a shot packed with interesting detail, the closed balconies in their varying colours really are lovely and make a great feature.... I love the way some of them have their windows opened at the same angle! Your excellent processing has revealed super-fine detailing and is as usual well controlled. What a fine shot! Warm regards rosemary
mjw364 (6142) 2013-09-24 0:38
Great use of HDR to enhance this image and its vibrant colours. I love the sheer amount of detail in the shot and those iconic balconies are fascinating. Great depth and clarity and the HDR is not overdone - the way it should be done.
subhendu_bagchi (21024) 2013-09-25 8:15
a nice view of this street using such high POV. I like those beautiful buildings with nice balconies. Great composition with the busy road at bottom. Colour tone is attractive and the depth of this image is just great. Superb work. Tfs.
emka (64142) 2013-09-26 23:41
cześć krzy chu, Dopiero wróciłam z ostatniej wycieczki i jeszcze nie miałam czasu zobaczyc nawet swoich zdjęc, nie mówiąc o innych. Mam troche zaległości :). Śwqietny widok na maltańska ulicę i calkiem mi nieznany. Piekne te balkony, troche wplyw arabski czy hiszpański. Znalazłeś swietny punkt widzenia. Podoba mi sie.
W Kolonii nie zrobiłam żadnego zdjecia. Zatrzymalismy sie u dawno niewidzianych przyjaciół i wolałam z nimi porozmawiać. Z okien samochodu zwrócił moja uwage ciekawy budynek kolo wiezy telewizyjnej. To chyba nowy meczet. Może sie tam kiedys przejdziesz i nam go pokażesz?
Pozdrawiam z Warszawy Małgorzata

Merveilleuse rue de la Valette, ces faēades qui sont splendides avec leurs balcons, leurs couleurs, trčs belle présentation et bravo pour le POV
danos (78112) 2013-10-04 12:15
great the panoramic view from this advantage point with the colourful closed balconies to are the eye catching of the scene.I like the creative perspective with the light management to enhance the beauty of the image.
delpeoples (48592) 2013-10-12 16:36
I love this scene: the vivid colours, the overhead wires, the chaos, the high POV, exceptional post processing and that wonderful sense it conveys of the photographer being part of that daily life rather than a tourist happy snapping. What a great city, your photo beckons us to visit.
Thanks for sharing
