Hi Sunil

Good use of diminishing linear perspective here with superb sharpness & excellent shadow detail. Good graphism of the solitary lamp. Wonderful warm vs cold color contrasts between the blue sky & red bricks. Tfs!

Hi Sunil - very well composed here and your framing in this style really suits these Andalucian scenes very well.

The problem with this one is the very difficult exposure. On the one hand you have the intense brightness of the sky and on the other there are the very dark shadows. If you shoot in RAW you can try tonemapping/HDR. With the RAW file you can make exposures up and down from the original and blend them together to get a more 'balanced' image! Hope this helps.

Hello Sunil

Sufficient shading here to give great detail to these buildings, you chosen a good angle. The light in one corner bursting thro' coupled with the pleasing colour of the sky adds much interest here, very welldone. TFS

Stv :)

Hi Sunil,
A very nice composition and I agree with David for the contrast and the light in a difficult exposure,
Beautiful place and great old architecture and I like the lantern on the right,
Nice perpective..

Hoi Sunil,
Well, I understand the contrast problems, and think you did a good job.
Nice architecture. Good colors.
