Oh YES! What a sky to compliment that lovely shite and bright cathedral!!
Excellent POV, and wonderful depth! I enjoy the way you have cornered the statue on the right to make it stand through towards the interior of the picture, actually leaning in to the white bright area in the middle. A wonderfully successfull composition and brilliant colors!
TFS and congrats!

Nice colors and a good POV. The clouds adds more interest to the sky. I didn't like so mucha that lamp posts in the foreground but we can avoid them.

Very good compo, light and colours. I like the dark-blue sky, the church and the statue. And of course, that street-lamp.

I like this picture. The secret lies in the sky you wer lucky to have and the PoV with the monument standing boldly, as the pose would also suggest. The white cathedral is a fine b/g for it.
