Valletta Church

By Andrew_Hurley
This is Our Lady of Mount Carmel. Taken whilst visiting Malta in April this year. We took a ferry over from Sliema to Valletta, which is only a fairly small city and therefore can easily be explored on foot.

Only very minor adjustments made. Saturation, sharpness and a slight warm up.

Map location is approximate.

All comments and votes very welcome indeed.

Love the colours and tones of the church, but there's too much shadow in the foreground for me as it just keeping dragging my eye to the bottom of the image

For me its a cracker. The colour of the stonework and the dome against that blue sky are excellent. I would be delighted if it were my shot.

Thanks Stephen, Ray and James for your comments.

I think the shadows accentuate the narrowness of the streets and how built up Valletta is. The church has very little space around it to breathe and is almost being choked by the surrounding buildings, but somehow manages to rise up triumphantly against its adversaries. It somehow reminds me of St Pauls Cathedral in London during WWII, when London was bombed and all the surrounding buildings were shrouded in smoke, St Pauls Cathedral just stood out, untouched by Hitler and his bombing campaign.
