The colors of this lawn and flower-beds were so bright, together with the beautiful peach-pink of the buildings, that I could not resist the wish to impress it.
What do you think is on the left? It is a trunk of a palm tree!
To make the colors a little more vivid, I added a little of contrast and saturation, and sharpened the photo a bit.
I really like this kind of view of the Plaza Mayor of Peru's capital Lima. What is also notable is the balcony, made of non-painted, but laquered wood, a typical feature of this city's architecture. I have never seen similar ones in any other place and I am curious, where did they come from? Does anybody know?
Another note: the architecture of this square is very beautiful and ancient. I will probably post more pictures of it.

Belle image bien colorée. Je trouve toutefois qu'il lui manque un vrai point fort. Le poteau de béton à gauche prend trop de place dans la composition. Peut être aurait-il fallu un angle plus large pour en montrer plus et minimser la place de ce poteau.
