Valletta's streets and piazzas contain architecture ranging from early 16th century Baroque to Modernism. The city serves as the island's principal cultural centre and its unique collection of churches, palaces and museums attract visitors from around the world. When Benjamin Disraeli, future British Prime Minister, visited the city in 1830, he described it as "a city of palaces built by gentlemen for gentlemen," and remarked that "Valletta equals in its noble architecture, if it does not excel, any capital in Europe," and in other letters called it "comparable to Venice and Cádiz" and "full of palaces worthy of Palladio."

a shot that typifies the architectural history and atmosphere of this wonderful old Mediterranean City. An enticing perspective and perfect clarity make this both attractive and inviting.
Have a good week - B.

Taken out of the height with a very nice result.
Wonderful perspective and depth picture.
But the old façade is a great history and certainly nice to look at
You play wonderful with light and shade.
An excellent composition, nice presentation.
Very well done, TFS.

Quel beau point de vue sur la rue. Elle parait longue et étroite. L'ensemble est d'une grande netteté et profondeur. Le belle luminosité fait exploser les détails.

thanks for showing

A very good POV and a great perspective of this narrow sloping street filled with a row of cars leading the eye to the far end of the image. The height of the buildings and the narrowness of the street combined with the vertical format give a vertiginous sensation. The church provides a focal point of interest to the overall composition. Good work.

so you're still posting photos from Malta, you must have a large collection stacked up at home haha
and of course you show us the narrow presentation in the tall vertical, its your signature.
In this scene alone we can see some new, some old, some fresh and some rustic pieces of architecture.

A very nice dominant view on the street
Very attractive vertical line and nice old architecture

The charm of La Valletta! Beautiful old architecture with a jungle of balconies and that on an incredibly steep street.
It looks a little like the island is ending there with the large surface of blue sky.
Good strong colour contrast.
Best regards, Paul

bella prospettiva su questo taglio verticale, ottimo il contrasto tra il blu del cielo e il colore caldo dei palazzi.

Nice cityview of Valletta.It is perfectly framed in a well chosen vertical format, while the light is very well managed.
Excellent clarity and splendid light, very well done.

Hi again, comparable to Venice and Cadiz? Very different bfrom both these cities but with its own charm. Excellent composition, even the rows of parking cars look attractive here.

Excellente composition verticale pour présenter cette étonnante rue toute droite de La Valette bordée par ces immeubles typiques.

you have well captured here the typical narrow street with characteristic architecture. I like especially the stylish white red dome of the church. The town indeed resembles a bit Cadiz, which is also surrounded by the see because located on a peninsula. Venice is of course in its own class I guess.
Beautiful work, you were very productive there!

TFS - congrats,

Lovely depiction of the old cityscape using the narrow road and converging lines of the buildings to lead into the whole depth. Great perspective and dof, fantastic sharpness and deep colouring which is so stunningly set off to blue background. Great shot, tfs
