Lovely shot :)

I'd be tempted to crop off the bottom and top to make it more letterbox and also set the black point a little lower but still it's a lovely image.

This is my first post on the site so hope I get it right.

Was in Sevilla in May for the April feria...such a beautiful city. Loved it.

a marked shot...i get a feeling of running down to the left but it could be a tropical illusion
the processing is light verging on 'thin' but this brings out the delicacy of the paintwork
you dont need a lot of sky here...try a scroll down and watch the river bank take its place
the more i look and think critique...the more the shot becomes more likeable
cheers

now it struck me...its more art than out of the camera digital
would you care to say if you did any pp..its a bit hdr in some respects
cheers
ps i did a crop to see and thought that might be fair...and the verticals seem ok...must be the tide going out
:D

it was processed in Colour Efex.....so not straight out the camera. I wanted to give it a painting/arty sort of feel to it as the digital version would have been a little boring Imo.

The one below is interesting but just felt that was too OTT so backed that off a bit and got the post which I was Ok with.

It's a beautiful composition of the subject. Did you raise the exposure/shadows in processing? I love the way you've treated the processing but there's something not quite natural to it.
super..natural
this is the part of photography i tried and gave up...if its done well it is well done
cheers
