St. Ignazio Cathedral is located near the Pantheon. It has a very non-descript exterior, although the interior more than makes up for it. The architect Andrea Pozzo painted his frescos on the ceiling to such an extent that one would never believe that the cathedral actually had a flat roof. His 'fake dome' paintings on the ceiling are breathtaking.
I did some curves, added some contrast and finally used Neatimage.

Geez yes. It doesnt look flat at all!!
I liked your composition here ..the figures more or less forming a subtle square in the centre. Very good work. You do have a nice gallery. TFS
