Default Good one!

Hi athegn

I agree with Bynx, a clean looking image. The colours look very natural and clear in my opinion. I like it a lot - presents a perspective of that historic landmark area from another angle, which is good!

And the building in the foreground is very interesting in it's own rights.

Thanks for sharing!

Paul

Well done mate! You've captured a classical view of Pisa Baptistery, the Cathedral and Campanile (the leaning bell tower in Pisa) from the west, in the way they appear in art history books.
As a humble suggestion, I'd crop a little from the lefthandside so as to press the perception on the consecutiveness of these compelling edifices and select the sky for a somewhat more 'distictive' background as much as possible.

Re-cropped and sky replaced.

New sky on separate layer (saved as a tif) so can undo at any time.

Comments please

You've shown a good post processing skill indeed! Now the edifices stand out more against a sky of starker blue (the cloud patterns in the first picture were preferable though) I may sound somewhat fastidious, but I should say also find the door to the left bottom corner of the a bit distracting interfering with those of Pisa Baptistery on the foreground. a tighter crop or clonning out could work, imo ( no need to feel guilty while doing this since that door doesn't even exist in earlier pictures )

Door now cloned out.

Using original sky but with Gradient fill reduced opacity layer so sky now starker but with some of the original cloud still showing.

Thank you for the tips.

It nice to see that they finally got the roof fixed on the Pisa Baptistery. Here is how it looked when we were there.
