J'aime beaucoup cette composition. J'aime surtout le jeu de lumières à la surface de l'eau. J'aime aussi la texture de l'eau, résultat d'une longue exposition.

Belle prise a heure bleu, l'effet de la longue pose, la courbe avec les reflets colorées, une très belle réalisation
Meilleur vœux pour 2014

a very happy New year you and yours! What a beautiful scene to bring in the New year, the colors are rich and so varied while the sweeping curve of the waterfront Leeds the Eyre in such a soft and pleasant way.my eyes are drawn to study each and every building with the rainbow they each offer. Beautiful work as always.
all the best from Ireland

prosto i skutecznie :-) Ciekawy widok i dzieki ladnemu swiatlu dodatkowo zyskuje uroku. Najbardziej urzekajace sa chyba te poswiaty na wodzie. Bardzo dobra ostarosc i kolory.

Good evening Krzysztof,
First, lert me say I wondered where did you hide this fabulous shot all that time...?
Night scenery superbly collected along the waterdront curve on the promenade, blue hour par-excellence.
Light well set on camera, no "grains" effect and bulbs-excessive glare. Just perfect.

a very lovely and inviting view of the long, curvy promenade at the blue hour. The deep blue of sky and sea as well as the warmth and luminosity of the many lights and their reflections have been combined wonderfully. I like very much the atmosphere and the diminishing perspective along which clarity has been retained excellently. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a wonderful year!

nice sweeping composition and blue hour shot this. I went to Sliema a long time ago and really would like to go back. A beautifully accomplished execution and delightfully enticing presentation.
Happy 2014 and enjoy the first weekend of the New Year - B.

Hello Krzysztof - Firstly,let me wish you a wonderful 2014 with good health, happiness and plenty of good photo opportunities! I love the richness of the colours here and you have managed to balance the light very well with no blown out areas or very deep shadows. A simple but attractive composition which capitalises on the blue hour colours and contrasts. Warm regards Rosemary

Doskonaly POV, super kolory, fantastyczne odbicia.

macjake (49328) 2014-01-03 17:37
we don't get to see many blue hour photos from Malta, so this one is a sweet suprise.
it's also a bit different because its not the typical rustic looking architecture we're familiar with in Malta.
cool mixture of hues and colors
npecanhuk (59032) 2014-01-03 17:41
Very beautiful blue-hour picture!
I love those reflections on the water surface!
Special regards to the exposure, colors and composition!
TFS - congrats,
Enjoy your week-end,

'Love the lights, reflections and the curve created by your POV and light management. As usual, you made this photo beautifully composed and wonderfully executed!
josepmarin (57267) 2014-01-04 12:16
this is a good shot at blue hour, skilfully executed by means of an efficient framing, where you have caught the beauty of the lights of the city and its reflections on the water.
The curve of the promenade adds a nice perspective into the composition.
A beautiful work.
Indrasish (2541) 2014-01-04 20:46
Seeing this photo I decided that I will buy a tripod as soon as possible.. Wonderful shot my friend.. Nothing to say about your photograph.. Bluish sky, calm-smoothy Butter like water Just Wonderful.. What was the ISO?? Superb image quality and nice colors too.. Very well done..
Good morning and best wishes for 2014..

piekna niocna kompozycja. Wspaniala kolorystyka jak i cudowna poswiata. Sliczne swiatlo. Bardzo mi sie podoba, az chcialoby sie tam teraz byc. Do Houston zawitala zima, justo mamy -5/-6C, a we wtorek prawie -8C. Takiej niskiej temp. nie pamietam od lat.

Ciao dear Krzysztof
A very scenic and romantic shot. I like the curve of the promenade which leads the eye around cleverly towards the golden lights of the hotels and restaurants. The cobalt of the Blue Hour is stunning and I love that little solitary star crowning it off on the left. Excellent job and glad to see you back posting photos.
adramad (33590) 2014-01-09 8:21
Wonderful night composition, the blue hour, which increases the beauty with this beautiful sky, it also prints color the water, the reflections of the lights in it are also a great bonus.
A nice coastline with very modern buildings.
Very pretty color, which gives a lot of life to the image.
A magnificent brightness management, sharpness also
is perfect for enjoying the details.
Very well done.
Have a good day.
mcmtanyel (8235) 2014-01-09 16:37
Another excellent blue-hour photograph. Carrying a tripod definitely makes a difference in these slow exposures. It is interesting that the place was deserted, no people walking around & causing motion blur.
adores (32708) 2014-01-11 14:10
Different from the photos we usually see from Malta! A good shot of the bay, with good pov and exposure!I like the blue sky and the blue building that stands out among the others. Nice reflections also!
Hansaphotos (6329) 2014-01-16 13:13
Excellent blue hour shot of the waterfront of this city. A nice perspective and fine effect of the long exposure. Nice star effect of the lights and lovely blue tones. Great work!
jcpix (9324) 2014-01-16 18:18
You have maximized the relatively minimal view by smartly using the long sweeping curve of the seaside to make this a much stronger image. It's easy to follow and makes for a natural flow from either direction. Not only that, but the timing to capture this under the blue hour sky in conjunction with the orangeish glow of city lights is beautiful...especially in the reflection.
You've certainly transformed what would most likely be a generic scene into something enticing, a walk along this promenade looks to ideal at this hour. In fact, it would appear that you'd have the entire place to yourself. :) Sharp focus and detail as always, you have the PP down to a science my friend. Thanks for sharing some of this relaxing and Mediterranean atmosphere. Take it easy.
Cheers from the other side of the Atlantic,
