Same old, same old

Nothing too dramatic for the weekend. Maybe a bit photojournalistic. Taken in Mexico.

Old photograph tonal quality, which is nice! The building may be crowding the frame a bit at the bottom.
Samarth: thanks martin...

Wow - that's an amazing building. And you've given the photo a nice treatment, very aged and serious.
Samarth: thanks a lot...

Nothing too dramatic but one of your better works. (nearly) Nailed the mad lighting, looks 3D rendered, great work really, especially for a weekend.
Samarth: hah!, not rendered...glad you like it...

Oh my God Sam! You're so high up the people look like ants! Was this taken from a plane? The backdrop is really pretty. It looks really crowded, I hope you're safe!

Merry Christmas!
Samarth: LOL@merry christmas...
Nothing wrong with a good shot...taken well. Straight and the tone
Samarth: thanks phil...
Definitely an old photo feel, quality one at that.
Samarth: thank you nigel!
Absolutely stunning shot. The B&W is perfect here it really adds a dramatic effect to the image. Great details and composition too.

Very atmospheric! The edit seems to suit the subject very well. I would liked to have seen a little more space below the building but perhaps your options were limited?
Samarth: thanks, it was a conscious decision as i wanted to make it tighter but i suppose i could've been wrong...
Hello Sam.I am going to agree with Martin and Allan. This is a gorgeous capture you got here.
The processing is beyond fault and the clouds add to it.
It could have been a masterpiece except it is let down by the fact that you didn't gave it a base by cropping this way at the bottom.
I don't mean to be rude or judgmental but this picture is just too beautiful and processed like i have not seen in a long time.
Samarth: no no, i welcome constructive criticism... thank you chris...
A gothic treatment.
Samarth: yup, thanks...

That is a nice church. Perfectly captured. Something difficult to achieve. Nice tones too!
