Actually, Valletta is all about narrow streets. This is one of them, nothing special about it...

A fine capture of this attractive little street. I like the light and shadow contrasts and the rich golden tones. Very good rendering of the textural detail.

Hello Daniel - It may be an ordinary street but your shot is packed with charming detail. I think the composition with its well managed areas of light and shade conveys the feel of the area very well. Good colours add to the success of the shot. Warm regards Rosemary

ok,i want to say some thing regarding this photo.with a very common subject this photo is enriched with powerful light control.i tried this type of situation on another context,the problem mainly occurs @ backdrop overexposing to get the clear view of the foreground.
Its a good example for my reference.
The frame is best at fit as usual for your composition and style. Thanks for sharing.

What an effect you have created with light and shade! Wonderful shot it is with great details and super colors. It is a lesson for us that any damn place or condition can be converted to a spectacular image, only one has to know - how to do it.
Thanks for sharing,

This alley looks a bit simpler than some of the other streets of Valletta you have shown us, but I have a felling there could be fine apartments hidden behind these walls. I like how the view ends in another building, like you have created a cosy little room here.

A common narrow street, indeed, but always a pleasure to be visited and watched, always a wonderful subject for attractive pictures and that's the case here!
TFS - congrats,

bella foto e bella presentazione, splendida esposizione, la differenza tra il vicolo in ombra e la facciata di fronte è notevole, ma la foto risulta tutta leggibile.

A great shot of his narrow street. I love the gradation in light and colours from foreground to background. Nicely framed.

beautiful and so atmospheric narrow street and really excellent control of light!
The play of light&shade and how it divides the scene into two parts makes the composition really unique and captivating.

these narrow and old streets are really charming, and in your good framing we can enjoy the beauty of one of them. I like the deep perspective and the good balance between the lit areas and the darkest areas of the street.
The ensemble has a great graphical wealth, with a lot of elements very nice to see.
A beautiful work.
All the best for 2014!!

This narrow old alley is an ideal place to really capture the atmosphere, warmness and colors with its unique charm. The soft warm light is perfect and luminous, impressive compo with the standout bright wall anchors nicely. It's a marvelous intimate sight neatly taken. Congrats

ben rtappresentata in questo scorcio la natura particolare della città de La Valletta con i suoi silenzi, le sue strade strette sulle quali si affacciano le case caratterizzate dai particolari colori caldi e dalle verande e dai terrazzi caratteristici.
Ottima anche la gestione della luce e la nitidezza.
Ciao e buon fine settimana

characteristic narrow Street, i like the high p.o.v. you have chosen.

Très jolie POV, cadrage dans l'ombre vers la lumière, une ruelle qui a beaucoup de charme, comme toutes celles de la Valette
Kamilutka (8105) 2014-01-11 8:15
maybe it is common street but you managed to make it look quite extraordinary. Very good - slightly higher POV causes a little bit different perspective. The light on the middle wall makes it the element of the composition which one focuses the most on.
Have a nice weekend

Even without looking, I knew this was Malta and I knew this was your photo. A beautifully composed photo, with superbly regulated light and delightful colours and textures. What amazing character this place has. Thank you for sharing.

ces rues étroites en Italie sont superbes, de l'ombre vers la lumière très souvent, ce vis à vis, les plantes qui ornent les pas de porte, les marches, les pavés, tout un charme
i9l2y1m8a8t3 (4798) 2014-01-16 22:41
Beautiful. Just plainly beautiful.
I love the play with the lighting, the degree of emptiness and the gradient in this image. The gold colors are highly attractive especially as it fades towards the sides of the image. Wonderful shot! Simple, yet striking.
and happy 2014!

From the shadow to the light ! I really like this little perspective with its nuance of light. Beauty sometimes is in everyday landscapes. Really like it.

A very nice old narrow street, I like the atmosphere of these places where the inhabitants still know each other. Good light and details!
