In this photo processing session, I had quite a lot of work to do. First, my intention was to give a very old look to this monument. The idea was to put emphasis on the monument's texture and ornaments. I had to straight it up and make the background less visible.

Photos doesn't always need a lot of processing to look better. In this case, adding texture to the walls was needed (by increasing contrast). A little bit more saturated colours helped a but too.
