Its a nice record of the place.

Perhaps changing the orientation might make it more visually pleasing , allowing the light to fall left to right.

A perfectly good record with tonal range well contained.

Hello, Manuel. I am just wondering if I would have known it was Malta from the architecture. It certainly is an interesting restaurant, being on the waterside and you could be forgiven for thinking the fish they serve is fresh from that water. I feel that a portrait/vertical format would have suited this better, excluding too much of the other buildings and including some more sky. The top of the restaurant touches the top of the frame. What looks like a waterfall at the bottom right of the building is overexposed, the light has caught it rather badly, and in contrast the front of the restaurant is quite dark, so I think that a different time of day, when there is light on the building, early or late in the day, would look good, especially considering what the light could do to the windows and decoration at the bottom of the building. It's a great pity that the boat is directly in front of it, but if it is moored there, then there is little you could do about it. If there is a time when it is not in that position, I would have another go at photographing the restaurant. In my modification, I cropped both sides and added canvas to the top (a bit more sky). I adjusted highlights/shadows to get some more light on the building, used the burn tool on the waterfall and sky to deepen the colour, saturated the colours of the foliage, then sharpened.
Pamela.
