Its a good tourist type shot.

This was taken some time ago, so you didnt have the recent feedback about spot metering, so its still an issue here, but this time its underexposre. So the advice provided in the last image is all valid.

I think that apart from exposure, it would be an idea to correct the converging verticals (not absolutely necessary), and perhaps the image is a little too yellow, just judging by the sky. Even with exposure lifted, is still quite yellow, so the mod has this addressed, and is cropped to focus on the lovely dome, and have less of the out of focus tree. I like how that Lion(?) seems to be watching you!

Willie's said it all. You'll get the most from this Gallery by posting new stuff which picks up on past comments, either showing how you've used them to improve, or askign why they haven't helped, or even sayign why you have chosen to do something different.

Willie's modification significantly neatens this image and allows the beautiful dome to take up more frame space than the flowers.

Unlike your archway image, where the red flowers in the foreground were out of focus, this one is fine, but you just need to make sure the foreground flowers don't dominate the frame too much, but, together with the roof part in the bottom left, frame the dome nicely.

As to this being an old image, I noticed that it was taken on the same day as the arch picture, and just 36 minutes later. This made me wonder if you were experimenting with in-focus and out-of-focus foreground flowers, or if it were just a case of standing too close to the red ones.

Thanks Willie. It is a lion that watches you...

Thank you Pamela. I was experimenting a bit with a foreground out of focus. Greetings.
