Photographer's Note

The old centre of Naples shows it historic importance in the large buildings that were once the homes of Neapolitan aristocracy. Palazzo Carafa di Maddaloni, Palazzo Marigliano, Palazzo Filomarino - a few examples. Waling along these streets, it is difficult not to peek beyond the mammoth entrances and into the beautiful courtyards of these buildings, which are mostly from the 1500s.

I not only peeked, but enter. Looking around, wondering about the Venus from Milo on such a place. About the decay.
Then the lady walked into the frame of the huge entrance, stopped, and started to speak to somebody.
The paralell between her and the statue caught my eyes, so I took rapidly my "gun" and shot...
Beeing afraid that she'd notice me, but more that she'd change the position, "shot" very quickly, not taking care about the settings.

So here's the original without any changes, here's where I need some


from you.

I'm not good in PP-work, know only some elementary things to do. What can be done? what would you do? And the most important: how?
-correct the tilt with perspectiv correction, or just turn to the left?
-delete the wire with the deleting brush?
-curves, sharpness, contrast?
I like it, and somehow I don't. How would you crop?

A lot of questions...
I'll be glad about every feedback, WS
