Quite nice, but could have done with the buildings being just a bit lighter. Might be possible in software just to tweak them a bit.

Dawn is often a good time to be out photographing Mario, particularly when you are taking landscape shots. I think the issue with your photo is that as the sun is still very low in the sky it is not able to light up the buildings expecially as you have quite an enclosed situation. May be waiting just a bit longer would have changed the situation.

It certainly offers a lot of potential with the interesting buildings. The composition is good leading the eye back to the wonderful mill in the background.

Best wishes

I like this one a lot. The golden tones of dawn just creeping in at the base of the building, the perspective, the road leading us into the frame..all good! I think making it lighter would destroy the mood.
Excellent work.

A very nice shot with good exposure and good composition.

I would think that making some contrast adjustments to actually darken the darker area while lightening/brightening the areas touched by the sun might be a good idea.

Done in the mod, and Ive also sharpened and straightened the verticals.

One of your bets shots.

Yes, I do like the darkened mod. Gives it more depth somehow.
