Crystal Cathedral. About the only "architecture" photography I've done. The light is always different, so the reflections are often unique.

I'll end on this shot. The sky is awesome and lends a real sci-fi feel. It's almost as if the building is a large spaceship hovering over a clouded planet. You certainly understand diagonals (as mentioned in my last comment) which is great. This image wants me to imagine a story and explore the possibilities.

Since you told me which church it is, it has taken on a somewhat more ominous tone... :-)

I've got enough sense to know that this is looking up...but my brain keeps trying to tell me that I'm looking down. Like I'm on a space ship in outer-space looking down on a planet. Disorienting in a very fun way!

Congrats on winning the red ribbon!

Wow very cool perspective, congratulations on your ribbon.

Ha! I think it's more disorienting with cathedral in the top left corner!

This one gives me the feeling that I am falling... great shot and congrats on the ribbon.

Just magnificent. Sky angry, buildings perfectly composed and PP. Blackhole void bottom middle detracts ever so slightly. 8

I like this one, you've captured the buildings nicely through tilting the camera. I also quite like the reflections and atmosphere generated by the clouds.
