Struggling with colour under the shimmering sunlight

During our walk around Lisbon, we came across the Portuguese Parliament.

Lisbon Parliament 01Difficult thing to shoot, this. The sun was shining straight down the white stone front of the building with a vengeance – it’s not that you needed a filter for the camera, you needed shades for yourself.

Lisbon Parliament 02I underexposed the shots by over 1 f-stop (hence the deep blue sky), and have been playing around with the contrast, white balance and blacks to try and produce something good.
