Great photo. Terrific POV. I think that the HDR treatment has worked extremely well and is not overdone. I love the subject, the colours, the detail, the clarity and particularly the light and shade that provides a 3 dimensional effect.

Impressive view from above and long perspective of the streets with the whole line of cars parked
Good light and nice pastel colors
Bravo, have a nice day

amazing view from street with illustrated dome you captured.
ikeharel (65079) 2013-11-27 3:39
An exquisite view down the street, Krzysztof, with the dome prominently above.
Fine clear view, DOF is super and most i enjoy thearchitecture's details on the houses.
Well done from the chosen POV.

Hello Krzysztof - We've seen several interpretations of these distinctive balconies and your deep view is a very good. I love the way the road slices through the buildings and rises gently as it runs its length. The groups of cars make a fantastic detail here. Your POV is excellent giving a good overview of the town with the lovely domed cathedral. Your PP work is masterly. Top class.... I must have a look at Photomatrix. Warmest regards Rosemary

This is incredible, the most amazing part for me is the massive dome and how you have placed it inside the scene. the lead in line from the street gives excellent depth to the whole image, and its tempting to look at each and every building along the way, but the dome just grabs my eye so much. The placement of the dome gives perfectly the idea of the sheer scale of the construction, its truly epic in proportion to the scene.
The treatment has resulted in a classically beautiful shot Krzysztof, thanks as always
All the best

A strong POV, well framed and good colours.
a well presented shot,TFS

Amazing depth and sharpness in this photograph. The details are simply exceptional. The long sloping road with the cars parked in a row, the variety of shades of brown of buildings on either side of the road is fascinating.
Our vision is led along the road - up the slope and there we see a piece of the blue sea. The horizon merges with the different shade of blue of the sky. As our view moves skywards, we see the beautiful dome in full sunlight and the cross at the crest. Again, the details are impressive and lively.
Thanks for sharing, Krzysztof
rigoletto (34279) 2013-11-27 4:57
hello krzysztof. thanks to photomatix but special thanks to you! this road does not look like a blind alley with a balcony in the end, so you either are a very tall man, or jumped high to get this deep perspecive till the mediterranean. amazing light caressing the sandstone architecture and the cathedral looks majestic. great work!
Sergiom (70454) 2013-11-27 5:16
C'est une des plus belles photos que j'ai vu de Malte. Probablement à cause du point de vue choisi ainsi que la belle texture de l'image surtout au niveau de cette superbe cathédrale sur la gauche.
timecapturer (49288) 2013-11-27 6:20
iconic shot of Valletta. It is intensely beautiful and your HDR treatment has worked a treat here bringing out so much more detailing and textures. It would make a fiendish jigsaw this one. I love it! Superb imagery!
Regards - B.

The perspective on the street is superb , especially with the view of the amazing dome . The HDR works very well here , creating a beautiful atmosphere .

I thought some streets in San Diego are narrow, this street is even narrower. Great pov and good details. Beautiful architectures. Well done, tfs.
rychem (30229) 2013-11-27 8:40
Jak spojrzenie w głąb wąwozu, doskonałe zdjęcie z pierwszorzędną głębią (sic!) i perspektywą aż niemal do zaniku
rbassin (20956) 2013-11-27 10:16
une splendide photo de Valetta;
l'architecture y est bien mise en valeur, j'aime bien la rue dans l'axe qui crée comme une césure.
Romano46 (18472) 2013-11-27 11:17
una Malta diversa dalle solite per l'inconsueto taglio che dà un particolare risalto alla strada e alle tipiche verande che adornano le case, lasciando però che il tutto sia dominato dall'imponenza della chiesa, soggetto dominante della foto.
Quello che però mi piace in maniera particolare è la maniera nella quale hai trattato il colore lasciando che predominassero le tinte delicate soprattutto nelle parti più lontane.
Una ottima ripresa di questa città maltese.
Ciao e buona serata
ktanska (26353) 2013-11-27 11:35
It is easy to see that street of Valletta were not designed for car traffic. I'm sure it's hard to find a parking place there! Spectacular viewpoint showing all those windows, and the dome of the cathedral. You got good clarity with processing, yes the light must be rather tricky between those buildings.
ourania (38816) 2013-11-27 13:56
a fine composition in a vertical frame and a captivating view into the heart of Valetta (as I see it). Your point of view is great, it brought us to the high level of the buildings we've been admiring from the ground and your efficient hdr work has revealed so many details and so much charm on these old, characteristic facades. You've balanced light and shade in a very intriguing way, producing pleasing mild colours and a wonderful sense of intimacy. Congratulations and thank you! Thank you very much for your warm words too!
All the best, have a good night,
chrislo (4155) 2013-11-27 14:52
A very impressive 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. Using the tele lens, all the buildings look densely packed together. The dome provides a focal point of interest to the overall composition. Good work.
adidas5nb (5743) 2013-11-27 19:20
amazing and a unique pov.just love everything about the frame.great light and architecture.above all the classical feel it gives.
abmdsudi (48685) 2013-11-27 20:08
A deep narrow street scene taken from good pov which is perfect to keep the eye into perspective with wonderful immense details, superb depth which is accentuated by strong vertical flanked on either sides. Exposure is manageable where the light and rich colors have boosted the visual quality and nicely set off by sky. Well done.
fabbs99 (17129) 2013-11-27 22:09
Fascinating composition of this solitary church with great exposure, splendid light and wonderful warm colors.Great POV and a beautiful sky.TFS.
jcpix (13846) 2013-11-28 8:24
Who are you, Superman...how in the world did you obtain this vantage point?!! :) Spectacular! This is an amazing view down the street, all the way out to sea, with so much in between to admire and enjoy. I sure hope the people that live there appreciate the view they have on an every day basis...this is something else!
Really impressive compilation of architecture and varying light tones, another beautiful HDR result my friend. Parking must be a nightmare here, once you find a spot you might not want to ever leave!? The sensation of height and distance is conveyed superbly with this compressed visual, I'm getting a touch of vertigo. I'm actually liking the wires stretched across the buildings, tying it all together...quite literally! :) Excellent shot all around!
My best wishes,
Cricri (113509) 2013-11-28 11:02
Une vue que je connait fort bien, je suis passée par là...bravo pour le POV, la profondeur et la belle architecture, très belle présentation

Splendid view on the street with nice architecture and great perspective. Well done!
thebest (4276) 2013-11-28 17:56
Wow!!! this is a spectacular photo & your POV is fantastic - you were high up, where were you???
I love the street scene - the cars all parked neatly on the right side - the roller coaster effect of the road - the wonderful pink dome... the whole image is taking our eyes straight to the sea.
Exceptional photo for all the right reasons.
Mics (892) 2013-11-29 1:50
Awesome shot! I think Spiderman took a backseat to give way to your stunts to give us this amazing view. Wonderful photo :-)
jhm (146546) 2013-11-29 2:51
You chose a very well angle between the buildings.
Also the dome and different wood constructions to the facades make these picture very attractive.
Excellent depth and perspective picture.
Colour and sharpness be superb.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice weekend,
mirosu (15790) 2013-11-29 3:21
This is an outstanding photo. The view down to the street is perfect. The composition with the cathedral is excellent and light excellent. Superb HDR work. Well done.
Silvio1953 (133618) 2013-11-29 6:28
Ciao Krzysztof, great POV on lovely street, excellent clarity, wonderful pastel colors and splendid light, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio
adramad (41950) 2013-11-29 8:12
A superb composition with this great view of the street from a high point, which gives a great angle for the succession of the facades, with their curious covered balconies, the great dome of the church gives a really beautiful set, splendid as we can visualize the end of the street line of the sea, this gives great DOF to the composition.
A colorful perfect very natural.
A bright image with optimum clarity.
Enjoy a good weekend.

jakie piekne ujecie tej wspaniale ulicy i architektury ze wspaniala perspektywa. Podoba mi sie HDR w Twoim wykonaniu. Pieknie wykonane zdjecie, sliczna kolorystyka jak i swiatlo. Super praca. Moje gratulacje. Bardzo mi sie podoba. Czy moge sie spytac jakiego programu zywasz do HDR. SUPER!!!
Serdecznie pozdrawiam i zycze milego WE,
PaulVDV (25505) 2013-11-30 5:44
Wonderful deep view of this street, almost like a river that has cut a canyon in the landscape.
Excellent clear capture of the famous balconies.
Not knowing Valletta, one would think that you took this picture somewhere on an upper floor of a house but you probably took it standing in the middle of the street.
The picture is beautifully crowned with the view of the huge dome and a glimpse of the sea at the end of the road.
Best regards, Paul
delpeoples (56000) 2013-12-01 5:23
Ciao dear Krzysztof
Another excellent image from Malta. I like the vertical frame, which is complemented nicely by the vertical line of the street. I know the light must have been difficult here, and I see that the HDR treatment in this photo is a lot stronger than your usual (more subtle) HDR shots. I must say I prefer the subtler HDR images, but this is just a matter of personal taste and certainly does not mean that I don't like the photo. Nice work, thanks for sharing.
danos (92458) 2013-12-01 9:40
excellent the chosen POV as we can see through the narrow street the sea.I like the creative perspective as the depth of the image with the dome on the left to dominating the scene.
macjake (63122) 2013-12-01 19:46
loving your photos from Malta!
I recently watched a War War II Documentary on Malta, I had no idea Malta was so heavily air bombed. It said Malta was bombed more than any other specific land in the entire War!
For sure it looks like they have rebuilt nicely!
love this view you have here my friend, the large dome is splendid, works so well as the focal point and the star attraction.
whats not to like here right!?
subhendu_bagchi (25991) 2013-12-03 0:35
wow, what a frame it is! Love the used ROV which generated such a beautiful composition. Love the fast life with such great architectures. Excellent work. Tfs.
After some busy working days I am back here again. For the photographic journey... For you and with you...
lousat (85018) 2013-12-03 2:00
An excellent HDR PP to have the best by this difficult situation talking about the lights,the result is truly beautiful,i like the soft details and the pastel colors,great imposing and neverending perspective from the heart of old Valletta,i like it! Have a nice day and thanks,Luciano
Indrasish (2939) 2013-12-03 22:08
How are you my friend.. Sorry for my late rply.. What a shot!! I really like this composition and this long vertical format.. SWuperb image quality and nice colors too.. Very well done.. And nice perspective.. This one goes to my favorites..
Good morning and best wishes from Kolkata..
Hansaphotos (7599) 2013-12-06 14:01
Excellent vertical composition from this interesting city. Yes, street views like this one with so many high buildings can often be quite difficult to shoot. Splendid details from this lovely narrow street where the dome really stands out well. Did you shoot from the top of a hill or from a building? Anyway, a beautifully composed shot very well presented.
mcmtanyel (17997) 2013-12-09 21:27
Your photo proves your statement that Valletta provides many opportunities for a great photo. It is a perfect lesson in perspective and leading lines. HDR is very pleasant.
mvdisco (17784) 2013-12-09 21:30
Bonjour Krzystztof, HI,

nice tone of colors and light,
A sharp and clear details with an excellent DOF.
Very well done..Bravo..
josepmarin (58085) 2013-12-13 2:36
a good HDR treatment, with a soft achievement, with which you offers us a nice vision of this street and its beautiful architecture, in a very deep image, under a good light and with a good colors.
I like the perspective and the huge dome of the church in background.
PS: if you need some suggestion or you have some question about Istanbul, don't hesitate in to contact with me.
serp2000 (42480) 2013-12-13 3:34
I see Valletta is bigger than I thought before. Good choice of the point of view, fine details of the city, so familiar arabian balkonies. First time I saw it in Yaffa (Israel).
Have a great weekend!
adores (42197) 2013-12-15 16:45
A great pov! I love this view of the street and balconies leading our eyes to the dome! Another good HDR, as usual! Very good work!
npecanhuk (71938) 2013-12-21 2:28
Hi! That is such a wonderful picture, specially for its vertical format, chosen pov, exposure and, of course, superb composition! Cheers, Neyvan

HDR technique was helpful for you to get a really beautiful city view with such a wonderful old architecture and street design. Perfect contrast, excellent quality, nice colors and very interesting detail!
Best regards and a happy new year 2014 to you!
