At first, when I started to walk up the stairs I couldn’t see the church. All there was was a dark stair way and tree silhouettes in the dusk. As I kept going up and turning with the stairs, slowly an impressive view of the church opened up. It was that transition that I photographed, not the actual building. If I would like to show a tourist attraction, I would post some other shot that better describes the structure. There are plenty of those.
As for the oversaturated colours, I see your point I’ll give it a try.
