Nice. Almost three-dimensional.

Striking photo. Not just the HDR....but the composition.

There are always different ways to process a photograph. This is a quick 5 minute edit on your image. Always easier to work from the ground up with an idea then trying to reverse your path. The main subject is my main concern. I want the viewers eye to go in that direction and not wander around. With a photograph like yours, light shaping can help. Maybe not like this, because it is rather crude, but it gives you an idea. I would reduce the contrast and sharpness a little bit. You have a very nice photo, but it is always cool to see it done in a different way. Thanks for letting me do an edit on your photo and it was deleted as soon as I posted it....

Two different interpretations of the same photo, very interesting. They say different things.

The first, original one talks to me about the city, with the lightness, contrast and sharpness reminding me of old engravings, and I like it very, very much. I'm not crazy about the sky in it, I find it's a bit distracting. Would probably try to tone it down so that it's darker and less contrasty compared to the city. But I would leave the city alone.

The edit talks about the church (?), a different topic and totally different take of the scene. It's nicely done (you can probably do even more to separate it from its surroundings with the original).

What I find so fascinating about this is how one picture, edited differently, can say such different things. Wonderful picture!
