You have had a good eye to see this composition, with the man sat in the bench looking at the fresco. A fantastic light and absolutely stunning colours.
Thanks for sharing,

Very interesting capture of the man observing the art! The panel is beautiful, and so is the polarized sky behind! Very beautiful colors! Wonderful composition! Good job!

A good capture of this street art. I like the point of view looking over the shoulders of the man, who contributes much to the mood as does the sky. Very good light and colours; great clarity.

A panaromic screen. Reminds me of
the drive in cinemas. Good POV.
I like the presence of man admiring
the art work. Fine natural colours.
Have a nice weekend.

Beautiful photo, excellent capture of this fresco, but not just that! Great architecture photo, and also a beautiful, althought quite melancholice scene, with the lonely man sitting on the bench! Great composition and framing, flawless light management, beautiful colours and excellent definition! Congratulations!

le ciel crée la très bonne touche à cette image et avec le tableau central l'ensemble est harmonieux.Le cliché est net et bien exposé.
