Corner Niche

By dusfim
This road is also in Valletta Malta. This road is known as the hook street. The reason is because while starting going down the steps on the right hand side there is a big hook attached to the wall. Honestly the reason why it was used I don't know.

A nice shot Mario. Theres quite a lot of lens distortion visible on the top left, - but the only way around that would be to stand more in the middle of the steps.

Similar to the last uploads, I feel the ligh areas can be exposed just a little more, as in the mod. You are using a very aggressive negative exposure compensation, and I think what thats doing is reducing exposure so the street lights are almost exposed right on, but that may be at the expense of the rest of the image. You would expect street lights to look overexposed in a shot, so try less negative exposure compensation.

A very dramatic and interesting shot - Valetta is full of these narrow streets.
Just out of interest I've loaded a mod with the image straightened and lightened, but it's a great shot as it is

The street is beautiful and the wall niche starts the composition getting the eye up the stairs! Very good. IB
