[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
St. Julian's (Maltese: San Giljan) is a town in Malta situated along the coast, north of the country's capital, Valletta. It is known for tourism-oriented businesses, such as hotels, restaurants and nightclubs, centred mostly in an area known as Paceville.

St. Julian's is a popular town, usually flowing with tourists, especially during the summer months. It is also a well-sought after destination by the Maltese.

The town has only one skyscraper, the 98m tall Portomaso Tower.

Eventually St. Julian's is my birth place and I lived in this beautiful place for 23 years. When I got married I went to live in Birkirkara, the biggest town on the Island.

Hi Francis,

This is again a wonderful view where you show a high quality work!
The sharpness and POV are superb and the greenish colors of the water is just glorious against soft colored buildings. The position of the parked boat on the lower left corner of the picture, is well thought.
Good job!

dear Francis Xavier,
a picturesque shot of well composed perspective,
fore square boat, middle curved river, distant cubic houses and back round cotton clouds are layered very sophisticatedly, those are making nice depth sensation in this beautiful view,
the tone and colors are well controlled by mild HDR effect,
(maybe the cloud looks a little grayish)
thank you for your excellent shot,

  • Great

Hi Francis,

Clouds on the sky, river side and boats are my favotite view but for me it is like a dream as I'm located in surrounded barren mountains with lot of terror and harrasment environment, well shot focus fram compo all looks nice, TFS.


Nice pov with the boat leading the eye into the distance Looks like a dust bunny in the top left corner of the sky but the colour and lighting is excellent Very nice work
