|Taken in Trafalgar Sq. Liked the idea of the water coming from the statue in the foreground leading to the fountain on the right hand side. Some clarity and local tone mapping applied some dodging and burning also done in PSP X6.|

Your pp work has had an excellent result, fantastic clarity and depth. There is just so much overall quality in this image and numerous fascinating focal points. Great job!
Bom dia Kenny,
This corner of Trafalgar Square may have been photographed thousands of times
But few with such uniqueness.

I love the Clarity option in PSP, it gives you that false hand-painted colourisation effect that's a dead give-away in the image.
If it was my image, I'd be tempted to reduce the colour levels in the image with exception of the water statue - the colour of the statue is too close in balance with the rest of the image and it struggles to punch through. I'd also be tempted to have a little play with a blur tool to give the water in both fountains more movement. I'd also crop out a little of the bottom of the image so the statue fountain sits lower in the frame (more like a 16:9 rather than a 9:6 format, if you know what I mean).
All said and done, I like the image a lot - lots to see and the clarity affect works well.
