Hi PradyothChakraborty,

I rather like this. There's plenty of colour and character in this old building. I'm sure that if it could speak it would tell many tales.
I've uploaded a mod. in which I've de-saturated the greens slightly and possibly not enough. I've made a slight adjustment using the shadows/highlights tool and I've added one of my spare skies.
I tried to desaturate the blue as well because I think that the new sky, coupled with the colour of the top of the building, has presented a blue cast to the top of the image. With hindsight, I think a paler sky, perhaps with some clouds for the building to contrast against would have been better.
Anyway, I hope it gives you some ideas.

Regards,

Bren.

If you're having problems sending/receiving it Frank, why don't you temporarily post it as a page on your website and link to it from here?
If it will help, I can do that for you using mine?

Or look here.

An interesting picture. There are some good details in the old brick work. What the image needs is some early morning or late evening slanting sun light. The light is rather flat.
Yes Bren's mod with a lovely blue sky has added interest. How ever as he says maybe some clouds too would help.
It is obvious the photo was taken in flat and diffused light as there are no shadows. (no direct sun light)
