    Hi peeps!

    Almost closing time for the month and so I have decided to go with this view which was taken 65 metres above the ground while in Sagrada Familia in Barcelona. I decided to apply selective focus to the view using that tool in Corel's PaintShopPro X4. Apart from adding a touch of additional focus blur to the 'framing' basilica spires at each side of the image and a little sharpening overall, everything was done in one pass of the application's effect. It's not my normal style, so something a bit different from me this time.

    I'm very new to this so please take this in the spirit its intended – it certainly isn't a criticism.

    With a topic like this, should we have tried to capture the essence of the place in the shot, i.e. what sets this city apart from all others? I'd have tried to capture the amazing architecture and statues, possibly a conspicuous foreground and hints of the rest in the background; or I'd have tried to capture the ambiance of a space like La Ramblas.

    I've never entered a photo competition in my life, but I'm asking to try and discover how these things work, what counts as good, not so good, and plain bad.
