The new guard together with the AFM Military Band leaves Valletta City Gate at 10.00 hrs and should be in the forecourt of the Presidential Palace in St. Georges Square at around 10.15 a.m. Once there, a formal ceremony in which sentries providing ceremonial guard duties outside the Palace are relieved by a new batch of sentries. After the changing of the guard, the AFM Military Band will perform a display lasting about 45 minutes, after which the band will head back to City Gate together with the old guard.

A fine capture of this smartly turned out guardsman. The massive doorway makes a splendid anchor point. Very good rendering of the textural detail in the walls.

I have no recollection of seeing this on my visit to Valletta, so I obviously missed it and have learnt something from this post. The gate looks amazing and the guard gives us a real sense of its scale too! Perfect execution and presentation.
Have a great weekend - B.

molto evidente l'effetto del grandangolo, che rende la foto simpatica e divertente grazie alle pendenze della porta e della guardia.
Uno scatto originale e interessante per il contenuto.

Ton grand angle donne un air très penché à ce garde maltais au garde à vous :)Amusant!

Your processing style enhances appearance of the architecture beneath the shaded area and these have come out extremely well. The guard gives us some ideas as to the size of the edifice. Simply remarkable shot, Congrats
