Yeah, I added it because the original picture was kind of grey and blurry. There was a lot of smog that day. And Warsaw was cold even in mid to late August, when I was there back in 2010. It was rainy the couple of days I went there.
Well, the place is nice, framing also... but quality is awful. I'm not sure if pseudo HDR helps here. Many people like when colours are oversaturated and photo is contrasted... I don't, and I will say that nice place makes 75% of this photo. Regards
Thanks for the feedback! Yes, the quality is quite poor, and it was made even more obvious because of the fake HDR effect, which I applied mostly as a experiment because at the time when this photo was submitted, I was still at the stage when I liked slapping effects on things. Yet, it was amusing to me that this same piece would become so popular--well, like you said, a lot of people like bright colours! I haven't used the fake HDR thing in ages.
