Very realistic in making the photo appear old. :thumbsup:

However, you probably need to change your shooting view point and distance or use a wider lens for a better composition. As it is now, the abrupt cutting off of the building below and sides do not give a nice feel. The top of the tower is too close to the top edge for comfort. All these give a very congested feel.

Wrong sub-forum. Should be in the "Critique Corner".
IMO, too well preserved. Could a tear line, or burnt corner or two to look more authentic. ;)

But if i use a wider lens the sides of the other buildings would appear in the photo?.Should i take the angle from below inside of 45 degree ?

I don't know what was the scene there and so I cannot specifically say how to shoot.

However, you may stand slightly more left or right and then recomposed to include or exclude things on the sides so that things are not cut off abruptly (i.e. They may be cut but any tower or building edges is preferably not be cut in such a way that part of it appears and part out of frame).

Shooting slightly further away and from a much lower angle will also help to include more of the lower part of the building. Including the floor or any foreground object would add a little more 3 dimensional feel to it. Alternatively, stand closer and shoot only the upper part of the building instead of having it neither here nor there as it is now where the arch doorways are cut in the lower edge of the frame.

Personally, I feel a better aspect ratio for landscape picture is 3:2. Now seems more like 4:3?
