Very good exposure,composition and colors,GJ. I like this cityscape because it is almost like a painting.

Thanks Cherlyn. I often wonder if many viewers really care about the background info I provide on my travel photos. Thus, it is encouraging when I get comments from a visitor saying they appreciated the info I provided. A.K., I had the same reaction as you about this looking like a painting. The original does not have this effect. As best as I recall, I just fiddled with the contrast and saturation. All of sudden, it took on this look and I now consider it one of my best photos. However, only a handful of others seem to agree! Thank you both for your comments.

A good bird's eye view of the church & the surrounding & interesting description of the church :-)

Perhaps some visitors think this is just a photo of a painting. It's not; it is the real thing. FWIW
