Looks like your post/pic worked fine! Nicely exposed picture with pleasing colour. The crop looks a bit tight to my eyes, some of the lamp on the right is chopped. I like using my P & S compact (with fully articulating screen) flat on the ground at the very base of trees, looking straight up. Of course, this is only practical due to the 180 degree flipping of the screen.Cheers..

You might want to post a larger image, using 800 px on the long side of the photo..

I think the perspective is very interesting. I do find the crop a little too tight on the right side. On my laptop monitor the picture seems a little overexposed on some parts of the lamp. It does result in a wonderfull blue sky. Regard the last if it looks fine on your monitor, might be my laptop......
Great picture though, lovely lamp and church. Where was it taken?.

Thanks to you all for your great feedback and tips!.
You are absolutely right about the tight crop - it's something I notice every time I look at it. Unfortunately, it wasn't done in PP (there was none), I was just too busy trying not to get run over by a horse and carriage at the time....a valuable lesson for me - composition above all else!.
The shot was taken in Seville, Spain and the tower is the Giralda. I would highly recommend a visit there if you haven't already been..
Thanks again for your responses and encouragement..

Very nicely done Olivia. I'm thinking this would look good in b&w too.That salmon(?) you posted has such a forlorn expression !Thank you for your comment. :o).
Gotta believe in something....believe I'll take another photo....
