    I took this picture in Venice this summer. I've done all the editing I want to do with it and currently have the final image in an 8x10 frame above my bed. Anyway, I just wanted some critique of my photoshop skills. Thanks!

    you've done a nice job, but I still think it could use a tiny more 'punch'. perhaps a slight S-curve adjustment and a saturation bump would round it out a bit.

    Quite nice job capturing it and editing.
    I would, however, crop it differently. The top of the building is semi-boring and I would crop it to landscape to make it punchier.

    I would also try building up the mid-tone contrast using USM at .3 radius, 0 threshold and amount to taste.
