[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A typical Maltese village house, a 'well-off' one with lovely red apertures contrasting with the Maltese dark stone. Dominating is the traditional Maltese balcony which is wooden closed and projecting from the wall. Sometimes one sees a whole street with different colored ones.

PP work: HDR from a single shot.

Hi Francis:)
Nice presentation of this house part as well as natural pattern and colors.

Francis Xavier

You seen the essential details of this house.
I like to see these four different types of windows and the facade which is not shown completely.
Colors and light on the wall are interesting to highlight the texture of the wall.
But what I like most is the electrical wire that runs above the door and under the window like a road, it also gives dynamism.
My best regards.

Nice colour and detail of this architecture. An interesting point to crop to at the bottom. I also note, but to the best of my knowledge, there's nothing one can do about it, the converging lines resulting from tilting the camera upwards.

Hi Francis.

You show fine detail to this capture of Maltese architecture, especially above the louvred windows. The pale stonework contrasts well with the paintwork, your sharpness shows this well. The rectangle openings used at present for wiring, I wonder what they were originally used for. tfs

stv ;o))

Beautiful architecture! Nicely captured with good lighting and dof with nice details. Love the colors. Very well done, tfs.

Hello Francis Xavier,
cene with the facade beautifully photographed the window and balcony in beautiful detail, contrast, and colors. Light effect and beautiful section shows and important details,very well done.
My best regards.

What a lovely scene you have captured in here, Francis!

The picture is razor-sharp and clarity is nice.
POV and DOF are excellent, and colors are original.
I wish there were a bit of contrast boost therefore, I did a WS in order to show what I mean, hoping you don't mind.

Thanks for sharing.

Best regards,

I like the colour contrasts in this shot very much. Nice architectural shot with good details and design. TFS

Hi Francis,
Neat strong contrasts formed with the warm reds of the windows and door, good full image.

Hi Francis, just stunning - breath taking - The red color of the window shutters and the closed in balcony in contrast to the warm tone of the building.
Compliments - it is excellent.
Kindest regards Monika

Bonsoir Francis Xavier,

Superbes lignes courbes ou rectilignes!
Vous avez lu un beau travail sur cette façade typique maltaise.
Bonne gestion de la lumière juste à peine appuyée sur chaque détail,
ainsi revisité par votre regard avisé.
Excellent contraste ici et là.
Compliments pour votre présentation soignée.
