Marsaskala Harbour , Malta.

Here is a montage of Marsaskala Harbour Malta I happened to come accross. I originally took this on film, scanned and saved on a CD. When I was in the camera club they had a competition for a storey board and I submitted this printed on A3+ paper and mounted. Judge just walked passed and never even commented. I would be interested in comments here.
Colin.




Here is a picture of the harbour and boats.





Comments welcome .
Colin.

Re: Marsaskala Harbour , Malta.

I've been there!

Personally I'm not a fan of montages. I'd rather see a triptych or a set of images.

Compared to the original there is no progression through the image and it is so busy your eye cannot settle anywhere.

Re: Marsaskala Harbour , Malta.

Graham, I agree with your second comment, image is a bit busy. There is supposed to be a lead in line through the boats to the church, but it is not very obvious. Thanks for comments.
Colin.

Re: Marsaskala Harbour , Malta.

Second shot is a nice scene, and full of colour. Would never guess it was film.

Like the montage - makes a nice memory selection.

Re: Marsaskala Harbour , Malta.

The whole point is that it's "busy"! It needs to be. The separate images lead the eye round, and there's plenty to explore and enjoy. OK, it doesn't fit the conventional view of a storeyboard as I understand it, so that's probably why the judge passed over it without bothering to spend time thinking about it. I understand that judges are not allowed thinking time in the rush to get through it.

My biggest problem is the text. With it, it's a picture postcard; without it it's an evocation of a harbour.

Re: Marsaskala Harbour , Malta.

I think it just needs one of the additional pictures to be taken out or rearranged to allow the church to be in shot.

Great to see a film shot.
