Good performance from a camera phone at this ISO. It gave you this unique opportunity.

Blacks are a little watery, and can be pulled in a little.

The strong light in the top right has caused a reduction in contrast, giving a washed out look.
Avoiding that light in your frame would have spoilt your composition, so some adjustment is necessary in post processing.
Willie's modification shows what can be done.

You have a nice row of monks and have used a good low viewpoint.
It's a shame that some of their faces are obscured by the pipe, but it does make a nice strong feature.

An interesting image and not too bad from a phone. The flare from the window has, rather unfortunately, killed the contrast resulting in a misty flatness which will be rather difficult to deal with.

Beautifully seen and composed.

I've done a mod, cropping a bit and then both cloning and burning in to stop the window being a distraction. Does this change the picture, I wonder?

I'm delighted that you have used a mobile to catch this moment: I shall look at my own 'phone with increased respect today!
