Republic Street is the main shopping street in Valletta. It runs right through the centre of the city from City Gate downhill to near Fort St Elmo on the tip of the peninsular. Sections of Republic Street are pedestrianised and often buzz to the mass of tourists and shoppers in search of a bargain or just a quiet drink in a shady spot as here. The squares just off Republic Street are also popular venues for outside cafés, restaurants and bars.

Hi, Nice place to have some rest and small cafe or lunch or maybe breakfast. The people are obviously enjoying their time. I would probably go further, though. Very pleasant composition, I like it very very much.

A charming place still in the shadow at this moment. Well taken, fine atmosphere.
Enjoy a nice day.

Hello Stephen - I like the atmosphere of this shot. A typical street scene with people enjoying a few moments of relaxed dining. I think that the old fashioned shop front makes this shot what it is, the well lit and attractively decorated windows speak of quality and stylishness. A place that would attract me if I happened to be passing.

The light is really good, lighting the tables, whilst making a tile-like pattern of street shadows. The people are still bright but, apart from one individual, are benefitting from the canopy. You have captured a wonderful ambience which I just want to share!
The angled view creates a good guide from f/g to b/g.
Have a great day,

You have captured well the relaxed atmosphere of this wine bar in Valletta. Nice balance of exposure between sunlight and shade.

one of the things I love about Mediterranean life is the fact you can sit outside and enjoy a drink, some food and watch the world go by. This place looks ideal and stylishly enticing. Nicely executed candid image.

La présence des gens anime la scène. Tua s bien capturé l'action des gens à la terrasse du café. La bonne luminosité rehausse les couleurs de l'mage. Bonne journée.

Un des bons moments de la journée surtout lorsqu'il fait très chaud. Profiter d'un bon verre, de l'ombre tout en regardant les gens passer. Tu as bien saisi l'essence de l'endroit.

direi che mi siederei volentieri anch'io a uno di quei tavoli.
Peccato l'impalcatura a destra, ma era difficile tagliare la foto in quel punto.

How nice it would be to be sitting there. We have thunder and hailstorms overhead in the south of the UK right now. Super clarity with a lovely café window. A real picture of relaxation. Bit of a pity about the wooden hoarding on one side but cropping it would lose that wonderful figure of the solitary man.
Best wishes, Ann

Inviting and pleasant-looking place!
Attractive picture too!
Sharpness, exposure, colors, chosen pov and composition are all very good photo qualities that I truly enjoyed!
I'd love to stop by for a while and have a drink or two at one of those tables!
TFS - congrats,
