One of the many benches along Dingli Cliffs, Malta's highest point, geographically speaking. More information about the cliffs can be found here: http://www.dingli.gov.mt/default.aspx?MDIS=743.

This shot symbolises the tranquility one can enjoy at the place - just sit back and take in the view: the sunset and the beautiful Mediterranean Sea.

Even before reading the text, tranquility was the word that came to mind. There's a sense of the bench enjoying the view, unencumbered by humans.
V2 even better for me, the narrower frame directs the eye up from the bench straight to the sun, it creates a link which is something that I like. There's a feeling of expectation.
I'm seeing a halo around the left side of the bench-back in V1.

Moira, I had noticed the halo originally and edited it out by some creative cloning, but that was my 1920 x 1280 version...then I tried out some other modifications on the original TIF, went for 1920x1080 and forgot to edit the halo this time round. After uploading it, I realised of the mistake. It's not huge, and in a way it isolates the bench even more, but I know it's bad HDR practice to leave halos showing... will be more careful next time... Wink

I'm glad you like the title chosen and even more glad I managed to transmit the mood properly. Smile

Richmowil, thanks!
