Default Some critique please - Tyn Church Prague

I took this in Prague with my Fuji f200 exr. (Now have a 450d but didnt back then) Wrapped my jobypod around a railing.

Advise please on composition. I have just done auto levels on photoshop.

Thanks.

With the blown highlights I think this picture screams HDR. Lot of potential there I think.

I agree it is quite a bit blown out in the middle of the two towers.

The image also seems to have gone alot softer after uploading, was alot sharper on my PC.

The first one shows less sky noise than Martin's. What did you use, simple?

i think that the mixed lighting is just too much for a single shot, edited in any way.

the only real way to handle a scene with such drastic differences in light is using multiple exposures blended, most commonly through and HDR program.

The composition leaves a little to be desired. Your main subject is centered, for one thing, which is rarely a good idea except on a square format 6x6 film photo. Then, you're slicing right through the top of buildings at the bottom. I just think that in this particular case, you might have been better off taking a picture of the church from a little farther back, in order to show it more in its urban context. Just my opinion, though.

hdr for sure would have been great here i reckon the shot was taken from this angle to get most of the detial in and you couldnt move right for the tree blocking your view so you used thr tree to frame i also agree with starling if possible it may have paid to drop further back but not seeing the location again it might have not been possible. the church is just asking to be shot it looks great

Thanks for the feedback guys...much appreciated.

I will give HDR a shot...As i wasnt too impressed with the light in the middle of the two towers being so bright/blown out.

I've got a picture of the church from further back...But me and the mrs are in it...Will try and crop that one to see what it looks like ...Its taken from the same angle, just with out any zoom.

Cheers.
