Interesting building and good leading lines but doesn't "say" independence to me.

good idea. i would have exposed more for the sky...it feels a bit blown out to me. and i don't think the stone work would have been hurt by a bit more underexposure. if you had the ability to change your aperture, i think it would have been nice to increase it and throw the trees as out of focus as possible or tighten it so everything was crisp. though i understand how hard it is to judge something like that looking at the camera's screen

the tower looks like it's slanting just a little to the right. also, the composition doesn't work for me; your subject is dead center, and then you've got huge trees on the left.

according to information I found on the web this tower was built in 1939 to commemorate all soilders and sailors in all the wars Americans have participated in. I do not relate that with independence. The picture itself is very normal and therefor I give only 2

Nice use of leading lines. It might have been more interesting shot at an angle instead of dead center. I'd bring up the sky color a tad if possible.

Good leading lines here, sky is a bit overexposed. Overall, colors seem a bit flat but still a good shot.
