Evening is falling

Evening is falling over Riga and the tower of the St. Peter's church is lightened by the late sun light.

That morning I climbed the tower to have a gorgeous view over Latvia's capital city (pictures later). The warm light created a happy atmosphere in the streets.

PP work: adjusted levels and curves small crop, resized, sharpened and add frame.

Good Morning Hans,

The light is wonderful!
It bathes the pinnacle in gold and seems to splash the remainder all over the surrounding buildings.
Lovely composition, with the main focal area strongly positioned, and the tall tower, following the line of thirds.
The focus is sharp, providing excellent and interesting details.

My warmest regards,
Bev :-)

Bom dia Hans,
Gorgeous! Great catch and presentation.
Have a good day,

Hallo Hans,
Mooi warm licht op deze opname van de St.Peter's kerk!
Ben je helemaal tot de bovenste verdieping geklommen?
Ik kijk uit naar die opnames!

Hi Hans,
Great sunset cast on this marvelous tower. Warmness is present in this presentation, accurate sharpness and great management in light.
A good POV and a neat outcome.
My best regards,

m dia Hans
Interesting architecture in an beautiful warm light. Light is the golden touch.
Um abraço

I like the compo but I see some problem with the colour balance..too much yellow?

I love the warm light of morning and evening. I like the warmth of the colors here. I think this shot is well contructed, with the tower slightly off-center, and the dark silhouetted tree on the left. Very well done Hans.

It is grand how the evening light bathes the architecture in different colours, depending on how it strikes their surfaces.
Great timing Hans,I like your positioning of the tower,it commands attention,as it should:-)Beautiful capture of the light.lots of details in the buildings,I can see the staircase you had to climb,looks like a long climb to the top,but I expect, the view from up there,must have been worth the effort.

wonderful light on this amazing structure, really nice shaprness in this too, well done , nice capture,
thanks scott
