During the 18th and 19th centuries, Sibiu became the second and later the first most important center of Transylvanian Romanian ethnics. The first Romanian-owned bank had its headquarters here (The Albina Bank), as did the ASTRA (Transylvanian Association for Romanian Literature and Romanian's People Culture). After the Romanian Orthodox Church was granted status in the Habsburg Empire from the 1860s onwards, Sibiu became the Metropolitan seat, and the city is still regarded as the third most important center of the Romanian Orthodox Church. Between the Hungarian Revolution of 1848 and 1867 (the year of the Ausgleich), Sibiu was the meeting-place of the Transylvanian Diet, which had taken its most representative form after the Empire agreed to extend voting rights in the region.(wikipedia)

the deep perspective of the street, with the interesting architecture of the wall leading our eyes towards the beautiful tower in background, is the factor that makes this composition very powerful visually, besides the nice light and his shades.
The quality of the colors adds a high quality to your composition.

I think you composed your photo very well - I specially like the way the arcades lead the eye further and further... Nice, warm colors and good contrast. You managed well the light so all the details are visible - also the ones in the shadows.
