Nice shot! Interesting, the church looks very different from the orthodox churches in Greece which have round domes and are earth-bound.

Nice use of black and white, looks a little oversharpened though

nice angle but lighting could have been edited a bit more

This is a perfect W, and a beautiful picture!

Great shot. The b&w works really well here and I just love the sharpness in your photo - it almost feels like 3D. Good job.

Beautiful shot, just a tiny bit tilting to stage right :)

hmm intesting and fist the challenge well. Somtnhing seems to be missing however perhaps a contrasty cloudy backdrop, or somthing of the sort to help this image pop out a bit more.. Well shot just feels a little too tame IMO. Still a nice shot. itr just has trouble standing out.

I would have liked this better if the sky was a little lighter... I'm not sure if you did anything (filter?) to adjust the sky color, but it looks kind of unnatural (sorry if it is, in fact, natural)

This is a nice image. I like the angle from which you shot this image. I also like how this image was shot in black and white. Nice work.

lighting weirdness hurt an otherwise excellent entry
