I find the bridge distracting splitting this into two images.
I think it would be better cropped above the bridge to just concentrate on the
scene above with interesting and beautiful spires.
I'd still clone out the crane and maybe add more contrast to the image.

Thank you Kate for your comment on this and previous images. I have not been inclined to remove objects as I am happy enough to let the images represent what was there. I have uploaded a version as you suggested. It is not from the same image but I have significantly increased contrast and some clarity, I am not sure if my adjustment is good or not but there is clearly room for more contrast in my images. Smile
I have removed the crane and cropped above the wires over the bridge as you suggested. I would like to know what you think Smile

V2 is much, much better.
It is not a sin to remove objects which spoil the view especially when the crane
isn't a permanent fixture!
With digital photography we are expected to modify light, contrast and saturation
if it makes it look better.
The camera can't record everything correctly as it will average out the light.
I'm not sure exactly what level you consider your photography is, so I won't preach!
If you enable modifications, there is a team of experts who will give you very good advice.
It is better to take your images in RAW, then you can recover a great deal more of what you actually saw.
I've only got five years experience and have heaps to learn.
From your new version, I think you know how to make the most of your images, so you're well on your way.
all the best

If you nominate any advice as constructive, the Critique team will look at what's been suggested
and will give it the green light if good and not if we're leading up the garden path!
This will also bring comments from the experts themselves.
I've watched the improvement of several members over time who have taken good advice.
