    Here's the 2nd version. I think I like it better with the tighter crop.

    Hi Chriss,

    To be honest; I'd prefer both better levelled, with some perspective correction, and without the halo - but that's just grumpy ole' me

    I do like the leading lines to the building, composition and second crop though.

    Hope that helps,

    How did I do on my leveling? (updated the crop version)

    I'm just a learning trial-and-error beginner. But everyone sees things a little differently. I wondered about more emphasis in the Greek (Revival?) architecture with the lighting? as to me this was the focal area a little lost against brightness of sky.

    Now I can see the carving detail, but perhaps the lighting looks too unnatural?

    Yeah I like it where it shows the details on the statues.

    here's an updated version that I re-work at home.

    Ah yes, C, that's taking it a bit further. I guess it's a matter of intended focus. The extra light on the ground to the right might look a little unnatural, but the bas-relief sculpture in the building tympanum is much clearer. I'd tweaked the perspective a little too, just simply nudging in the top crop corners a little. Interesting to compare the overall effect between your original and latest.
    P :-)
