The Sevilla cathedral from the Plaza del Triunfo. I took this photo while waiting in a queue to go into the Royal Alcazar. This gothic cathedral is huge and ungainly, some might say ugly, but interesting nevertheless. It has all sorts of shapes and colours in the decoration. The spiral towers and the orange dome are features that distinguish it from more typical northern European gothic churches.
Polariser used to cut down the glare of the Spanish sun.

Sharpness, exposure, pov, colors, pp, contrasts, horizontal format, black & white borders and simple composition are all excellent!

Olá Vince, not ugly for me that's for sure, I love the rich details and elegance of Gothic and this is an impressive example of that style. The whole top is amazing, very well captured against the blue sky.
