Lovely shot Margret. I guess I was wrong about the prejudice against stuff from the post enlightenment.

Congrats on the blue, Margaret. This was one of my top picks. I thought this was yours, and recognise the place although I've never been there.

Excellent image. Looks vaguely familiar. I think I've seen a similar 21_F.gif MNet shot.

That is so cool.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

What a great perspective. This looks like one of those places where the picture composes itself, but your processing elevates it above the thousands of tourist snapshots that have been taken in this place.

Having no idea what a "shot tower" was, I looked it up. Way cool!

Also looking through the images on the Web, yours is the best out there. It's also my favorite for the challenge. Judging by other photos of this structure, a good angle of shot is something not easily achieved. Many of the other photos out there also had a lot of distracting shadows on the main structure, whereas you seem to have none. Overcast perhaps? I also like how you used the square edge of the tower as a leading line. Overall, there's a lovely luminance about the scene.

Oh, WOW! Seriously, WOW! Guess what, I am pretty impressed. I am only a slack handful of photos into voting, but I cannot imagine any beating this...
