This is a nice place to relax on a cup of coffee (actually horrible everywhere in Malta) or a cold beer.
Marsaxlokk is a traditional fishing village located in the south-eastern part of Malta, with a population of 3,277 people (NSO Report, Dec 2008). The village’s name comes from marsa, which means "port" and xlokk, which is the local name for south east. The word is related to the name for the dry sirocco wind that blows from the Sahara, comparable to the equivalent Catalan word, "xaloc".

A pleasant summery composition, with the cobbles making a fine long lead-in towards the church. A good place to sit and linger over a cold beer as you say. Very good warm/cool tonal contrasts.

nice the view of this section of the fishing village, with the with the visitors to enjoy their coffee under the umbrellas of the coffee shops.
I like the creative perspective with the brilliant light to lead-in the eye on the beautiful building on the backdrop.

Superb colours and light and a fine view of the church and the other buildings. A shaded table and a cold beer must have been very tempting in this strong sunshine.

ottima accoppiata tra la foto e il titolo, probabilmente hai ragione, questi scorci, con questa luce e la possibilità di sedersi davanti a un bar, si trovano nel Mediterraneo e la tua foto lo documenta molto bene.

another enchanting and inviting shot from Malta. Could do with some of this strong light here at the moment. Love the warm colours and relaxed atmosphere here so typical of the southern half of Europe, expect that why us northern lads like it so much eh? Beautiful presentation.
Regards from yet another wet autumn day here in England - B.

Good sharpness and density with fantastic warm cold color contrasts between the blue sky and honey colored stone architecture. Looks like a lovely al fresco area to sip a chilled wine and have a slice of pizza in the evening. Tfs!

Oui c'est une très jolie place, avec la belle église de Notre-Dame-de-Pompéi, quand j'y suis allée il n'y avait pas de terrasse de ce coté là, donc j'ai l'autre coté :-)
vraiment une belle image et un très beau souvenir

I like very much the upward point of view and the irresistible dynamism of your photo. There's superb clarity and sense of depth enhanced by the placement of the various elements of the setting as well as by the walking people. You've managed the strong light very aptly offering the colours the best quality they could have at midday. The details are exquisite and the chromatic contrasts most appealing. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely evening,
