The cobblestone street trackage is neat, but the background isn't. You might try shooting this either late in the day or early in the day when the backgroud will be mostly in shadow. Also the cobbles will be throwing long shadows and the street will be much more textured. Try this one again as well.

I definitely will on my next visit. I was walking along just checking the area out one evening and there were tracks everywhere, so I took a few shots for documentation purposes. The lighting was particularly horrible at the diamond because it was in shadows cast from the building across the street but everything around it was in bright sunlight. I believe if I was there in the morning the sun would be shining up the street and make shooting much more flexible.
