Pretty cool! I may have been tempted to leave out the other building and the motorcycle, while focusing in more on the tables/main building. Perhaps standing a few steps to the left could have accomplished that...?

That's quite a coffee place! The black and white doesn't really work for me here-- probably because it masks a lot of the detail to be found in the beautiful old buiilding. --5-- sohr

A little overexposed. At least, darken and boost contrast. A bit cluttered in the foreground.

goood... the black 'n white makes it even better in my eyes!

Is that tree on the left really necessary to be in this composition? I find the building interesting, especially the one with the two openings. I also think that a vertical compositio nworks better -- move 3-4 steps to the right, making the building a bit symmetrical, go vertical on your camera, move a bit closer so that the seats, table, shade be a main interesting and let the contrast between the white umbrella and the nice texture of the building do the talking. The tree and the open space on the left is just too distracting, for me. 6 paganini

I dont think B&W works well.. It would be more interesting to see the old building contrasted with the new chairs/building in color...

Like the idea. Did you try vertical with just the tables & umbellas + church as backdrop? Could also be interesting. 6 chakkobbo

Very cool looking spot. Good luck. Justine

Needs stronger composition, maybe if it had been taken portrait, instead of landscapped to see more of the building behind. Just leaves me wanting to see more of the surroundings...
