Great picture! There are so many elements of design encorporated in the picture you could hardly go wrong. (Reflection, pattern, shape and form, texture, point of view, perspective and shadow.) The use of F22 gave your picture a great depth of field which is so important when doing scenery. The only negative I see is the loss of some of the detail in the old church. This was caused by your light meter reading the sky or bright building instead of the church. This could be corrected in a couple of ways. The first is to lock your readings in place by aiming at the church and depressing the shutter slightly then without letting up on the shutter release compose your picture and finish the shot. The second way is to bracket your picture. Unless your camera has the capability to change into manual mode this would not be possible. If you would like to know more about bracketing, email me and I'll explain in greater detail. (9) JG

Great work, this truly looks like it's in a strange place. This gets my highest score for the challenge.

The building is beautiful and I love the bushes in front. That sure is a strange land beside. I still can't figure it out. Kinda looks like a reflection of some sort, but in what I'll never guess. This is strange and awesome. I like it and would give it an 8 if I could. PTL

This is an awesome shot and I like the contrast of the two buildings. Good composition and lighting as well.

Great Picture! Needs a to be sharpened a bit, but great overall.

Nice contrast. The building in the background is really bright, colorful, but your subject (IMO the church) is as dramatic, so attention is drawn away from it by the contrasting background. You might try turning up the contrast more, it's legal. The trees seem on the dim side, too. Good challenge shot. 8 Swash

I like the contrast (Brick vs. glass/steel). Good eye. Jacko.

A wonderful composition. I really appreciate the old against the new. The paradox of the church against the state. Nice colours too. It looks familiar somehow? Is it in Canada? For some reason, it reminds me of Toronto.

This is a great shot!!! You should place with this one. The two definatly don't go together. I don't have any comments on how to improve it. Good luck! 9

A good shot, and a very good idea for the challenge. I like the message, despite not being religious. Technically the photo is very good, though the trees get in the way a bit too much. Well done.
