Photographer's Note

The boats in Malta are called Luzzu and Kajjik, and their brightly painted patterns originate from 800 to about 200 BC when the Island group was colonized by the Phoenicians. Malta has a fascinating history, with it’s location in the Mediterranean, it is between Northern Africa and Europe, and the culture as well as the architecture reflect the influence from both.

The esplanade near the Sliema Ferry had a number of docked Luzzu. The boats’ reflections in the water created interesting abstract patterns, and I ended up taking a few different shots of this particular boat. I’d posted one version earlier on TE, and received some suggestions / critiques which I incorporated in this version. Initially, I was interested in just the colors reflecting in the water, but without some of the boat, it seemed a little too abstract and drab.

Technical / post-processing – Increased contrast (auto), Increased saturation +7, slight cropping on top and sides, sharpened, borders, re-sized to TE specifications.
