Tigné Point is a peninsula in Sliema, Malta. The area was originally occupied by several fortifications and a British barracks complex, which were left derelict for many years, until the area was redeveloped in the early 21st century. The area now contains many modern buildings and is popular among both locals and tourists.

The peninsula was originally known as Punta di Santa Maria, and its extremity is also known as Dragut Point.

Behind The Lens

Location
Right off the bustling streets of the capital City of Malta, Marsamxett Harbour, historically also referred to as Marsamuscetto, is a natural harbour on the island of Malta. It is located to the north of the larger Grand Harbour. The harbour is generally more dedicated to leisure use than the Grand Harbour, The small channel of water is not only the division line between the old and the new but also the place where HMS Maori shipwreck is located, MS Maori was a Tribal-class destroyer named after the indigenous M?ori people of New Zealand. She served with the Mediterranean Fleet until she was bombed by German aircraft while at Malta in 1942 causing her to sink. Her wreck was later raised and scuttled outside the Grand Harbour, and it is now a dive site.
Time
I have been scouting the area on either side of the peninsula, to capture a sunset above the Grand Harbour and the St. Elmo bridge/breakwater, Though as luck would have it it was a very clean and cloudless sunset tried a few shots, but after a while i gave up.. walking back the road to my car after packing everything i spotted this little spot ( tripod happy surface ), by the time i un packed and set-up my gear it was around 20:00..
Lighting
I set-up to capture the reflection of the highlights on a 1 min exposure and as luck once again played is role a small fishing boat decided to cross my field of view!
Equipment
Ground to Air :- Manfrotto Tripo Nikon D3200 Kit Lens 18-55 and a dandling remote
Inspiration
The game of reflection on the sea and its play between dark and light!
Editing
Added some contrast and vignetted the bottom part of the image to extenuate the bright light wave.

Feedback
Never give up! Keep at it and you will start to fall into the right place at the right time! JUST BE READY :) ohh and most importantly have fun!
