I approached this shot with an idea in mind, that like so many of my shots was just was not happening. So I had to do my best and make lemon aid. I must say that I learned a lot about light that day. I believe this picture worked best for me because of the very flat light on the church. Other photos with areas of light and shadow appeared very splotchy. I hate the piller ashtray out front but what are you going to do. I tried to move it but it was so darn heavy. Then I realized it was bolted in place. LOL.

This is dramatic. Know what you mean about those ashtray pillars... ;-)

I don't think you gain anything having the large area of emptiness in the foreground.

Cool but why did you take this in portrait and not landscape mode? The tiles don´t really do anything for this image as far as I am concerned, would have liked to see more of the left part of the building instead and ergo the sky above that section. Still very nice though, love that sky and I gave this a 7.

Wonderful sky! This works well as a negative. I would like to see a little more detail in the brick walkway...perhaps a little longer exposure? Love the sky though!

What a great apocolypse kind of sky. Nice.

This really works as a negative, the sky is very daunting.
Nice job.

I really like the contrast with the sky

I don't know why, but this really appeals to me.....
I think it is the softness of the image.....
