In the 1920s a Slovenian architect turned the seat of Czech government into a fresh symbol of independence and democracy.
Arcaded staircase leading to the entrance of the church Plecnik on Barje,Ljubljana (SLO) is worn out, the tower falling pieces of concrete. The famous Architecture reconstruction is necessarily. Another destructive earthquake would be a drastic end of the period of genius.

This is just so beautiful. I hope you save it with many photos before that earthquake strikes.
This is dead center... very documentary. Could you make another copy, but crop the right side to touch the brickwork on the lower round rotunda or silo?

You may choose to go left, depending on what is outside the frame.

Your texture and fine detail is really good and I like the upper vignette. That vignette still works one sided. No need to keep it centered. TG

I like the image and detail, however it needs a slight rotation counter clock wise, as it leans a little to the right. 0.6 degrees according to Photoshop, measured at the upper structure.

Nice mix of tones and detail.
