Not sure here if you want critique. However, here goes. A nice record image with just one fault for me - it lacks contrast. On my uncorrected netbook screen, but at any angle, the image has a slight milkyness which I think is flare from the tiny bright area at middle top - the sun coming through.

Ideally a slight re-framing when shot, but you should be able to boost things with a contrast increase in software.

Hello, I find the subject of the photo is interesting but that the picture is quite crowded, with my eye not quite sure what to look at first. I suspect that to fit in both Christ and the Madonna you had to stand a fair bit back, but that has left the foreground quite crowded. The ironwork of the gate particularly stands out, due to it's colour.

I might have gone with just taking one element of this picture, such as the crucifixion, and tried to show the beauty of the shrine in the detail.

Hope that helps,

Rob

Welcome to ePhotozine!

I tend to agree with the above comments. The image is rather busy and I think it would be better to concentrate on one part of the scene at a time. Alternatively, if you do want to include the whole, I think you need to step back just a little farther so the edge of the picture of the Virgin and the bottom of the gates are fully in the shot.

The photo needs a bit more contrast: I suspect that the problem is direct sunlight striking the lens at an angle and bouncing around inside the camera. The solution is to shade the lens, either with your hand or, if one is available, with a lens hood. If using your hand, make sure it stays out of the shot! Smile

There's also some over-exposure. The photo has no pure blacks and the histogram bunches up a bit at the right where there are parts of the image that are too bright for the camera to record properly. When shooting in bright sunlight, check the histogram and, if necessary, use some negative exposure compensation to decrease the exposure. The over-exposure will also be contributing a little to the lack of contrast.

I've posted a mod with the exposure and contrast adjusted to show the effect. I also rotated to correct a slight lean and sharpened a little.
