This is the second shot of my theme 'Thanks to TE members!' (see last upload)
The shot :
Here I did the same :
-ran NeatImage : then the sky is much less noisy ;
-removed the tracks woth PhotoFiltre ;
-contrast, light, frame.
I think now it's more pleasant to see than before (see the original version).
Smetana (great composer 'The Moldau') :
"Smetana was the first major nationalist composer of Bohemia. He gave his people a new musical identity and self-confidence by his technical assurance and originality in handling national subjects. In his operas and symphonic poems he drew on his country's legends, history, characters, scenery and ideas, presenting them with a freshness and colour which owe little to indigenous folksong but much to a highly original and essentially dramatic musical style."

Joli paysage, belle composition. J'aurais tenté de saisir le bateau alors qu'il entrait dans le cliché, c'est plus dynamique comme vue, ici il semble "coincé" contre le bord gauche. Le "bidouillage" sur les couleurs donne un effet de carte postale ancienne. C'est particulier mais pas génant.

I think you did a good PP job here. You suffer a bit from over exposure, but personally I think it can be acceptable. Nice colours!

I like the composition, Prague is an amazing city. I agree with other poster that the shot is slightly overexposed. Don't know what camera you use, but if it has manual control, in this situation you may want to try metering for the sky. That way you'll get more detail in the highlights. Thx for posting.
