St Petersburg is a beautiful city rich in Architecture, been there, and all you can come up with is that?

Sorry, hardly inspiring, shots of daggy traffic and overhead power lines doesn't do it for me.

I agree with most critic but I want just notice that I did not aimed to make a beautiful city advertisement booklet

I think this is a pretty harsh thing to say to you and I'm sorry for that. If you take a look at some other photos from your negative critiquing peers you can see that they are skilled with the post process. What you need to realize is that if your eye can't see things past continuous exposure in the distance then there is no way the camera can either. The dodge and burn techniques are used to make these images come "to life".

I guarantee you that the RAW from some of these people who are being harsh to you are night and day. So I just want to remind you that just because someone else can't see what you're seeing doesn't mean anything other than that. OR just send your photo to a digital artist just to annoy people.

Nothing harsh about honesty, how is anybody going to rise above mediocrity if people insist on pandering to the lowest common denominator? The OP said they liked buildings and detail, where is there any evidence of that? The best of Europes artisans were commissioned by Peter the Great to creative a "Venice of the North" and this is reflected here?

Stay in down town LA if you want to shoot that. What an insult!

Sorry, St. Petersburg is not only Treziny and Rasstrelly's architecture facades, especially for citizens. The photo below also shows St. Petersburg as I see it, with external elevators, wires, old roofs, etc. And I understand that it is not the beautiful photos for a tourist album book.

I understand that I have to achieve more skill in cropping, post processing and so on, but I don't want to shoot, say, 'standard views'.

Another terrific photo with wires
