Very skillfully composed, Si. Like the intrusion of the foliage into all the geometry.

Strong geometry, the curve of the hanging basket supports are so important to the image (the baskets would fall otherwise Tongue)

No I didn't see this. To be honest I've never noticed the lamp posts there, I was too interested in that weird Roman soldier sculpture.
I may quote this upload in the future. I mentioned in the Critique Gallery recently that I reckon it's actually very difficult to get a vertical, portrait composition of a tall subject. It seems to be the obvious choice but it rarely works.
This does work, because of the falling diagonals created by the two lamps, and the two curves at the bottom. And then the line of the roof - rising rather than falling. Those diagonals pull the eye sideways rather than up and down. Nice one.

Thanks M, I saw an extension of the line in the RH foliage. The real challenge of this genre is deciding which vertical should be vertical. My rule is to choose the most dominant, failing this, make them all "wrong". Si.
PS; "Weird", you should here what the soldier told me about you, lucky no cctv eh.
