I hope this image it's not a sad one...just a simple scene from that unique city called Valletta.
Have a great weekend all of you!

The man carrying his shopping home faces a long climb! He is well placed in the frame and helps give the image depth and perspective. Good tonal contrast and excellent sharpness. All in all an attractive daily life composition.

Ha! Ha! Daniel, I can identify with this man! My house is built on a steep hill; it can be daunting on a hot day, especially if carrying shopping! (Sadly, we don't get as many hot days as they do in Valletta!)
Your viewpoint creates a wonderful vertical aspect and a fine sense of perspective. The man is well placed in the frame and we can share his view and his endeavour!
Have a great day,

A good composition where the steepness of the street is well captured. The man walking up the hill contributes a lot not just to the fine atmosphere but also to the good depth.

now if I lived in Valletta I would not need to go to the gym each week. This is such an expressive and wonderful idea of the steep streets of this glorious old City. Perfectly managed light and exquisite detail. Superb imagery!
Enjoy the coming weekend - B.

Le point de vue nous montre bien la côte à remonter. On a presque envie d'aider l'homme tellement cela semble difficile. J'aime beaucoup l'effet entonnoir qui donne de la profondeur à la composition.

Un personnage bien placé dans cette image cadrée verticalement, ce qui était nécessaire pour ce type d'image.Belle harmonie de teintes entre le bleu de ce ciel et les couleurs chaudes des façades à l'arrière plan.

Nice composition. I like the choice of vertical format to emphasize the height and steepness of the street. As long as you're healthy, it's no problem to climb up and down, and it's sure a good way of staying fit. The light is well captured bringing out the details of the image. The inclusion of the man is a fine element of interest in this still surrounding and shows off how climbing up this street can be a hard task. Well done.

Encore une bonne photo de ruelle maltaise.
Vue la pente, je ne sais pas si l'homme apprécie l'humour de la pancarte :)

Beautiful sense of perspective, very nicely composed and superb view point, it's like an invitation into the alleyway with the fig guides and hold the focus strongly without t distracting from an appreciation of the old buildings and its architectural detail. A delightful old town scene with loads of gorgeous colour, clarity and contrast. Very nice shot, Well done

it's interesting to see human reference that makes this graphical composition a daily life setting. I like very much your upward point of view and how the buildings rise so high in your carefully cropped frame. There's solidity and repetition, superb depth and sharpness. The uphill road must be less hard for the locals, who take it for granted, than for the tourists. At least there's nice shade all along. You managed light and colours very effectively. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely evening,
