Hello Tomas, it was a good idea to use the archway as a frame for the interesting building.

This is a very nice photo. The composition is almost perfect (my taste would frame it a bit tighter at the top, you can try to see if you like it by just scrolling up). The light management is very good under these challenging circumstances and colors are natural. The reflection from the window on the right is a definite bonus. Framing the photo by the arch up at the top is an excellent idea, I would just crop it closer to the top of the arch. The shadow of the Heydl House on the left walls is also very nice. Great job!
