The Uffizi Gallery is my favorite museum in Italy. I tried my damnest to get a night shot of it (and I did not bring a tripod) so I had to rest my Panasonic FZ15 on a pointy pole that stuck out of the ground. I did touch it up by removing noise through NoiseNinja, did some Unsharp Masking through PhotoImpact XL SE, and increased contrast by a notch. I also cropped it so that it fit the 8"x10" printable ratio but that's about it.

After I get a few responses, I'll post my own thoughts on it such as color, sharpness, light, and all of the other usual criteria for critiques.

I like it. Your improvised camera support seems to have held the camera very steady. I think the lighting, colors, etc. are very appealing. All in all, good job.

What do you think of the red sculpture in the middle-lower part of the picture? Unfortunately, the camera focused on the landscape so it left that blurry (as I would have preferred to have everything in focus). I have tried touching that up but I stink at software PP, haha.

Speaking of post processing, this picture was originally quite noisy and the colors were dull as a result. That's why I was a bit leary of the picture as I put a lot of effort into salvaging the shot. I just hope that some won't think it's over-processed...but it was the only way to make the shot look good in the end.

I don't think it looks overprocessed, at least at this resolution looking onscreen.

The foreground looks a bit dark to me. You can try to lift it up slightly using shadow/highlight tool or curves in PS

To me, the sculpture does not seem to fit the character of the place.
