Good architectural composition. I think the shot needs more contrast, however. I have done a mod to eliminate the 'out-of-camera haze'.

Very nice composition. I like the mod version especially the sky.

Hello, Leon. This is very nice, good detail on the architecture and a very nice sky. The image is, however, very pale and flat, has a pinkish colour cast, and the church is leaning to the right. In my modification, I straightened the image, did a small crop because of the straightening, adjusted levels to get some colour and contrast, then sharpened.

hi Leon,
interesting subject and location but a few things come to mind when i sit looking at your image,

first thing is the overpowering distortion which can be improved in photoshop.

second is the near mono tones within leave no dominant focal point based on colour and for me make this a great choice for mono, it would strengthen the interesting sky and concentrate on the graphic shapes and qualities of the architecture. i would suggest red channel for contrast.

a slight crop top and left to the centre of the apex of the closest gable helps the composition. a littlemore sharpening after reducing to 72 dpi helps too.

hope this helps
