A well-lit filmic scene with a very simple, yet dramatic story. Perfect composition for the purpose.

Paul Borg Olivier, Valletta - MALTA. This photo represent the typical street-scape of Valletta, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and European Cultural Capital for 2018. The photo was shot t 4pm in a November when the position of the sun moves straight into the the street in a direct line on the main axis of the City build in 1566. Knowing the neighbourhood, I went to shoot the empty street, when the man walked out of his house creating an "solar eclipse". I titled this photo (Every Man has a silver lining just like a passing cloud." I shot it with a Leica M9P and a 35 mm cron lens (ISO 200, f2.8, 1/500 LR).
