Lovely view. It's probably just me, but I get bothered by lines that aren't straight. While your horizontal lines are level, the vertical linesaren't (reflects theangle you were at when taking the picture, not anything you can do about unless you have a shift lens). Do you happen to have Photoshop? If so, there's a skew tool that you can use to straighten the lines. If you want, I can demonstrate.

It's actually quite easy. Basic steps are to pull guides out from the rulers and line them up with a line that is supposed to be either vertical or horizontal. Then select the whole picture, go to the edit menu, transform, skew, then move the corners around to make the lines vertical. You may have to crop afterwards, depends. Here's a screen shot with your picture more or less lined up.

After you get it how you like, press enter, then view, clear guides and deselect. Crop if needed.

P.S. This one took a couple of minutes, you could probably do better with a bit of time to make sure all vertical and horizontal lines are straight.

I should'nt really have this shot as it's a sacred place to Catholics..It was almost pitch black with a very small amount of light, there where people stood around so i put my camera on the ledge and sorted out the settings first then opened up for about 10 seconds and this is how it came out...Like i used the flash....If you ever go there you'll see what i mean...It's lite by Candles and the little windows at the end of the building!!!
