A good POV with the eagle in front towards the eyepulling orange colors of the building contrasting to the sky.
Still a few spots that indicate that you had a lot of trouble to balance colors/contrast here but irrelevant and easy to correct.

St Petersburg is a place I've always wanted to visit, and your excellent shot makes me want to go there even more. Good composition; I like how your use of a telephoto has compressed the perspective and made it seem as if all the elements in the scene are on top of one another, although in reality there was probably quite a bit of distance between them.

Maybe is the comment of our friend Henk very right, but it's always very difficult make a perfectly picture, I find this picture very well, excellent contrast and colours, lovely sharp too!
Thanks a lot,

Great composition Vivek!! the arch in the middle, and the eagle very sharp in the foreground, over a fantastic blue sky. I like also that you use only two colors, except black.

Good POV which enables you to show the succession of arches to which we are led by the fence. The inclusion of the two-headed eagle gives great depth to the image; the DOF and point of focus was well chosen

Hello Vivek! I really enjoy the depth of field used here. The blurry statue in the foreground is effectively placed. I also like how sharp the statues are up on top.

this is always a strong combination - russian architecture and setting sun (or strong rich sun colours)...well captured, looks great!
take care, Ivana

what a superb shot, vivek! :-)
i like that the photo is so nicely "crowded" with many great
details and layers - the eagle in the fg, the buildings in the
bg and the iron fence(?) leading to the archway, crowned by the horses and chariot, together with a clear blue sky
and the warm orange color on the palace.
well done & take care, thorsten.

A superb shot who shows us typical architecture of St Peterburg.
Colors and composition are great.
