I re-posted this shot as my fisrt post was pixelated. I wanted to thank everybody here for having given me advice about the post-processing which can be useful after a scanning. Thanks!
The post-processing :
-I ran Neat Image ;
-in PhotoFiltre thanks to the stamp tool I erased the tracks in the sky ;
-added light and frame.
The Church (Tyn) :
"This church was founded in 1385 during the tumultuous period when the ‘heretic’ Hussites (leading Jan Hus) were slaughtered by the ruling Roman Catholics. The Catholic Jesuits then made the church their own by recasting the bell and replacing the Hussites symbolic chalice with the ten-foot figure of Mary nailed up between the towers today"

You did a good job in pp-ing, David. The image now looks much better comapared to the original.
Colours are much warmer and there are less flaws then in the first version.

Beautifull place, beautifull city and beautifull capture. The sky is great.
You have maybe too much contrast here and some parts are dark.
The composition is excellent.

Strong composition choices, David. I like the contrasty feel to this, and the deep blue sky, of which there is plenty, creating a nice negative space that implies so much about your subject.

MUCh better than the original. Your original is the reason why I have given up on film. Scanning is simply bad for the quality of the photo, and to share photos on the net one needs to go digital. Not cropping the large sky was a great move, as its deep blue tones are simply beautiful. I really like this photo, and I hope its a beginning of some Eastern European theme:)

I liked, it looks very pretty place! But I think you could take less sky!
