Really nice. I like the colors, comp and lighting. The cat is a neat point of interest.
I might suggest the shot is a touch soft. But other than that very nice job!

Excellent capture of a beautiful sample of architectural design still trying to survive in some of our Latin American cities. Wonderful composition, textures, lighting and colors. The cat and the little green plants at the bottom of your photograph seem to remind us that although time passes by, life is still there.
Congratulations on this very well-deserved POTD, Mario!!! Great job!!!

A good example of when to break the 'thirds' rule. Center stage is the only option here really.
