I love it. The toning makes it a superb shot.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, kind sir.
An old postcard feel to this, Ginnie! Makes it feel so calm, somehow!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Elizabeth. It does have that timeless feel when you see it with your own eyes.

Love this vintage shot... this is absolute fabulous. Love the way the boats are all the same direction.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, MLMA. We'll never forget it, will we?!!!

It looks like a pleasant, touristy sort of a foreshore, Ginnie...a place for coffee and pizza.
Ginnie Hart: You'd love it there, Ray. Most surprisingly, Mick, who spends so much time in Valletta across the harbor, has never visited The Three Cities.

Très jolie photo, j'aime le traitement couleur sépia.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you most kindly, Martine.
You've made a wonderful nostalgic postcard Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, kind sir.
I see the large church is standing proud of all those houses Ginnie. It looks a densely populated city, did you think so?
Ginnie Hart: I, too, like how the large church is standing proud above the fray, Chad. I need to learn more about this place but, yes, it does look densely populated.

Full of character isn't it Ginnie, 1950s character in this case
Ginnie Hart: I guess we can date ourselves when it comes down to it, Chris, right?! grin

Oh, first I thought we are in Venice - but I missed the gondolas - a wonderfully treated image!
Ginnie Hart: A similar idea, Philine, but definitely not Venice. However, they DO have some gondola-like boats they use there. I'll have to see if I have a pic of one....

Cela me fait vraiment tout drôle de voir Malte en version sepia
Ginnie Hart: It's a place that stands the test of time, Marie! Merci.
The nice curvy boats are all lined up for you.
Ginnie Hart: Malta seems to have all its ducks in a row, Mary, when it comes to tourism!!!

Ginnie Hart: It really is, JP!

This an excellent treatments and the compositions adds to make it a superb picture. The one that should hang in your hallway.

This looks like a vintage postcard smile
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Cherry...what I was going after. smile
An absolutely fascinating place, isn't it?
Ginnie Hart: Assuming that means you've been there, Tom, YES YES YES!
Come on it's Friday the 13th, should have chosen another colour. Say blood! wink
Ginnie Hart: HAHAHAHAHA! Well, then...something to keep in mind for the nest time, LC. smile
Love the post processing...filled with nostalgia!
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Robin. You'd love Malta!
Our Lady of Victories--a name to reckon with...
Ginnie Hart: I really like it, too, Larry. smile
