Birgu is a very old locality on the south side of the Grand Harbour in Malta, with its origins reaching back to medieval times.
The city occupies a promontory of land with Fort St Angelo at its head and the city of Cospicua at its base. Birgu is ideally situated for safe anchorage, and over time it has developed a very long history with maritime, mercantile and military activities. Prior to the establishment of Valletta as capital and main city of Malta, military powers that wanted to rule the Maltese islands would need to obtain control of Birgu due to its significant position in the Grand Harbour.

The light is very attractive in this well composed shot. Also, the reflections and the contrasting warm and cold tones. The image has very good clarity.

another place I remember so well.
beautiful capture of the marina in Birgu!
I really like the strong color contrast between these different layers-blue/white than sandstone buildings of Birgu and again blue sky.For me-amazing!

a very elegant comprehensive composition with two attractive perspectives in the middle of the frame and the masts extending with different aspects both to the upper and the lower part of the frame. Clarity and rendering of textures are amazing. I absolutely love the light and the colours, you managed them in an excellent way exalting the fascination of the contrasts. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a good night,

Très belle lumière sur la marina et la ville. Une bonne composition verticale avec les deux zones bleus prenant le port "en sandwich".

Quel beau port de plaisance.J'aime l'espace laissé à l'eau à l'avant plan qui donne de la profondeur à la composition. J'aime aussi le bel arrière plan très net sous cette superbe luminosité.

typical marine scene but the buildings in the background seem to be a little bit different. Interesting architecture and very pretty light caught in here. Nice and bright colors and very god sharpness.
Thanks for sharing

A stunning vertical frame of this famous and enchanting harbour. I love the reflections which have an impressive symmetry. The light has been perfectly judged and managed.

An enjoyable layout of this marina where we are obviously drawn naturally to the stunning deep blue water being essential to the potency of this shot, This appears scenic and everything seems to work fine here to click the eyes with the white boats and brownish backdrop to strike the right notes aided by such brilliant light. Wonderful and pleasure to view, Congrats

Une très belle lumière sur le port et la vue sur la cité, bon format et couleurs, j'aime beaucoup ce pays que tu présente magnifiquement

A superb deeply saturated blue sky and smart choice of a vertical format to emphasise the height of the yacht's mast. Good sharpness and excellent color and saturation. Nice fg reflections in the harbour waters. Good repetition of the boats. Have a nice weekend!
