Another alley in Mdina Malta, and a traditional Maltese balcony.
Wonderful image!Great composition and nicely presented.
I love these ancient narrow streets.
Looks almost like a painting. Beautifully captured.
lovely street shot well composed good exposure.
Love it! Those bright spots of color - red, yellow, blue - and the other subtle colors make this such a great shot.
The composition and colors in this are beautiful. There is some noise showing up in the buildings. This can easily be remedied using a noise removal tool. It happens a lot in digital work, and is just one of those basic editing techniques which you will learn soon. Great job on the binging out the light in this.
Either you have invested a good deal of your hard-earned cash in an expensive tilt-and-shift lens or you took this photograph perched on the top of a stepladder or you corrected camera distortion in post-processing; either way, you have avoided the bane of architectural photographs: converging verticals. Your verticals are perfectly parallel to the edges of the photograph.
However, I must admit that I feel this photograph lacks a heartbeat. I think it needs a figure to be included, if only to give scale to the buildings. Indeed, as a general rule, I think street photography should involve people. I mean, I don't think streets would exist without people.
Like this shot a lot...as artcubis has said, it does look like a painting, which is one of the things I like about it...Great composition...Great exposure...although I would have toned the lamp down just a little...I dont always like people in shots, even one's such as this...I like the "Stillness" &"Solitude" of the image...in fact if there was any one in the shot, it, for me, would spoil it...it is a shame about the Huge amount of noise, it does make me wonder how high you had the ISO set...?
Never the less...it is a very nice shot...well seen...well taken...
Thanks again for your constructive critique. Yes i have noticed the noise in the photo. I admit that I forgot to arrange the ISO,after taking some shots at night. I felt that it was still a good photo. With experts in photography you cannot fool around. Thanks again for your full support. Dusfim
The verticals don't converge because the camera is pointing straight ahead: the vertical centre of the image is about half-way up the grey shutters, which seems to be at about head height.
This is quite a small space so it's hard to see how you could incorporate a person into the scene without them dominating. Perhaps a child playing could add that spark of life. Having said that, I quite like the peacefulness of the empty street, suggesting a bit of tranquility, even among the crowded buildings and alleyways.
However, I do think that the lack of people means that this isn't street photography. Street photography is unposed photography of people going about their everyday lives in public spaces, not just photographs of streets or that were taken in streets. I'd class this as architectural.
