lovely effort with some super detail in the cobbles and brickwork.
i dont think i could have done any better at all in the taking, framing or exposing of this lovely little corner of the shambles.
unfortunately there are some areas on both sides and top without detail and there is little to be done about that at the taking stage but a quick crop is all thats needed to focus attention on the well lit areas

i did a quick mod to show what i mean, it makes it stronger for me, how do you feel about it,

best regards

I see what you mean just a small crop can bring you in to the composition Grin

Decent shot, but needs cropping quite tightly. left, top and right to remove most of the dark areas. Better done at the time with zoom or legs. ideally, ISO100 and a tripod, but, at this size, the quality is quite good.

I've cropped my mod quite a lot - this is more of a square composition, or even a portrait-format, than a landscape, in my mind.

Even with high ISO you'd be on a tripod at that speed. While modern cameras are good at high ISO, 3200 is still not so good for many (I'm not familiar with your model, I give that as a more general comment), so, better to drop the ISO and retain quality - even ISO 400 would mean a shutter speed of less than half a second.

Your aperture is on the wide side, As the subject is static I'd go for f/8 to f/11 for best lens performance and ensure decent depth of field especailly as the scene extends from quite close to past mid distance.

Both points are not so critical if you're dealing with a web size image, but if you're cropping a lot, then wanting to print at a decent size it's something you need to think about.
