You have made a good attempt here, choosing to go in tight on the church. The composition works well, and the focus with deep DOF draws the full attention to this colorful church. The church itself is very well-exposed. Vertical arrangement works well here. Excellent!!!

the architecture of the church is lovely and its colours very original, must be unique. Your point of view gave a superb description, including the door of the church through the railing and offering a well balanced composition that deals with the striking variations in patterns and colours very efficiently. Sharpness is excellent, light and colour management exquisite. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely evening,
