Was planning to join this challenge since I’ve first seen it. This is the exact picture I had in mind.
Yesterday I fell down the stairs ‘’ 11 angular stairs with sharp edges and columns ‘’ almost broke my toes, beside the bruises, scratches and the spilled dignity :) I am fine.
My wife drove me tonight to old Montreal to take this picture, had to walk around 10 minutes in -5 Celsius to take this picture, and another 10 minutes back, 20 minutes shooting and relocating, the problem was walking with almost cracked toes :) and pain in the back.
I really enjoyed taking this picture and hopefully I can join more challenges with all the wonderful photographers I am following their work in here.
Processing:
1- Spot healing brush to remove sensor dust \'\' don\'t know how it found its way to my sensor \'\'
2- Crop.
3- Neat Image.
4- Unsharp.
5- Resize for web and upload.
The picture almost as it came from the camera, only the damn dusts.
Kind regards all,

Thanks for your comment, this is the best comment i've got so far,
Highly appreciated, Regards,

A good photo but I find it a bit cluttered with too much to look at. There isn't a main subject. I can't believe that there is a place where there are so many monuments, attractions and churches in such a small area.

What an exciting mix of all the various colors! Good choice for a night shot and very clear and crispy image.
