Hi Robert Good to see you added the EXIF information thanks for that. I'm going to say from the start that for me I think you got this shot technically correct. I like the aperture and shutter choices with the ISO of 200. I think for me the problems are with the composition its for me very "tourist snap" and if thatís what you wanted great but I think you could have composed the shot better to reflect more of what you were trying to show.

Remember this is only a suggestion, for me I would change my viewpoint slightly the CCTV, windsock and light on the left and the light to the right do not add anything to the shot so I would move closer and more to the right to frame the shot between these verticals. I would also elevate my shot angle so the roof of the foreground building forms my foreground interest as I shoot the houses behind and the terraced hill side.

As I say this is only a suggestion and like all photographers I have no idea if I'm correct until I push the shutter. Other people will suggest cloning out areas to improve the shot you have, but remember your photograph begins in the camera and get that right, the rest is just polish. Grin

A perfectly reasonable pictorial record. The buildings are just a touch over exposed. Half a stop less then brighten the foreground.

Its a nice shot overall. The camera did a good job of balancing the bright and dark areas.

You can improve it a little by toning down highlights in the upper half; lifting shadows in the lower as Paul suggests, and then correcting the leaning verticals can help too.

All done in the mod.


Regards



Willie
