    Colonial Architecture

    Lawang Sewu in Semarang. This was a Dutch Colony Head Quarters which had a dungeon for Indonesian prisoner. It's a beautiful building still but is kept as a reminder of colonial rule and the hero's who eventually defeated the Hollanders. 50 ISO, 50mm lens, F:11, 20 seconds. C&C welcome.

    Did you shoot RAW or JPG, Wayne?

    I'd consider:
    Straightening - it looks tilted slightly to the left
    WB - a tweak of the WB to adjust for the lighting
    Sharpening (It's probably my work monitor here, but it's not looking as sharp as it could)

    In scenes like this I occasionally bracket to pull a little shadow detail and recover highlight detail. -2, 0, +2 EV would do it here. This would still give you a slow enough shutter on the 'fastest' exposure to maintain blurred water from the fountains, and then Exposure Fusion in Photomatix or the like could do the rest.
