Hello from the critique club!
hi DougPaz!

This is one of the stunning sky shots :) I like it. Unlike some of the comments you received, I like the stark and bright light. I am one who loves the architecture of buildings. I wish you had shown me more of this building. I particularly love anything that looks like a church; don't ask me why, but architects always seem to take more time to be creative with church like buildings. This reminds me of a church building. Did it used to be a church?

I think your choice of aperture setting was great, although it removes the depth from the photo, and it makes it look really flat. I think that's mainly because there are almost no shadows... except for the one which is obvious directly in front. Did you try a shot from the right hand side of the building? or maybe if you'd have gotten more of the building (downward) in the shot, it would have given more actual visual depth to the shot.

I like the colours, the choice of your subject, and I think it goes well with the challenge. Your shots are usually well thought out and you know what you're doing :)
Good luck in future challenges!

I love the blue sky, and the details you have captured in the building. My only comment would be to crop it a little closer on the left since it is "tight" on the right. It feels a little off balanced to me.

This looks like a hotel in Nashville. hmmm. I like the blue sky and composition, but the sun seems a little too harsh.

Very nice perspective here. I love how the vertical lines are augmented by the diagonals! The light is a bit harsh, but this is a very clear photo.

Beautiful blue sky! Very nice contrast with the building. Focus seems really good. Challenge totally met. I really like the little figurine on top of the clock tower. 9 Swash

A reall beautiful photograph. The strong sun could have been a problem, but I think the shadows add to the image. Good shot.
