Photographer's Note

After recieving some critiques about overexposing the picture due to high contrast, I have re-post processed the picture from the start. I have made a new layer and with contrast +20 I have lowered the opacity to 30% till I reached a good contrast but didnt loose too much details. I am looking forward for your comments!

This is one of those shots that demanded a ten minutes patience. I was walking by the Belen's church wall on my left side when I saw that it casted an enormous shadow on the neighbouring church`s. The similarity between the shadows of the bells tower to the bell tower of the neighbouring church also attracted my attention and I started composing the picture.
However, this specific street was quite busy at that time of day (early morning) and lots of people and cars passed by all the time so I had to wait till there were no cars BUT at least one person that will serve as a proportion to the size of the shadow and the wall. Finally, I managed to freeze one moment of relative desolation...
PP: Cropped, Desaturated, USM, Contrast +10
PS - I add a WS of the color version. I pondered quite a bit about which is better suited, and I decided to go for the graphic version and leave the warm colors of early morning to other instances. What do you think?
