The Piata Mica is very unusual in that it's a semi-circle with a ramp leading down and away to the lower town, beneath the Liar's Bridge on one side. On the other, a covered passageway to the Piata Mare is the primary way of exiting the opposite side.
When we were there, it was a bit sad to see that this beautiful piata was under construction. Most of the paving stones were taken away and piled, a trench was dug down the length of the ramp and construction vehicles were parked all over.
At first I tried to work around this, as I'd been looking forward to seeing and photgraphing Sibiu, taking photos over the dirt and the piles, leaving things cut off at the bottom. But construction is a sign of improvement for people who pass through everyday and I'm sure this lady was looking forward to the trenches and piles going away even more than I was.

It seems it soon will be a very attractive place.

Beautiful scene, with warm tones, the woman added life and dimension to the composition.

I like the colors so much Clifton. The colors are very beautiful. The POV you chose allows one to be with her as she walks into the colored building.

I like the strange contrast between the angularity of the buildings and the bumpy unfinished road below. The addition of the woman with the bike adds an excellent human element.
A couple things though, it seems a little overexposed in places (how do you metre?), and I think you oversharpened this a touch.
