Thanks everyone for votes and comments - I really appreciate it!

This 'church' is actually very small and not at all meant for people to go inside although there is enough room in there for some lights to make it shine at night.
The church can't be more than maybe 15 ft tall from ground up to top of steeple.
This angle was the best I could do to make it look big. Basic editing doen't allow for perspective alterations but in this particular angle it didn't seem to matter too much as I thought it added to the overall picture.

Here's the one I submitted first before I changed my mind: ' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/15000-19999/18655/120/335627.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/15000-19999/18655/120/335627.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

What an interesting building. I'm struggling to find anything constructive to say here. Maybe the tree reflections but I'm really stretching here. One of my favorites.

Something a little different and you appear to have caught an angle that reflects (pardon the pun) the subjects best side - 8

Amazing building and I love how you captured the reflections. Nicely done.

I feel like the sky might be a bit overprocessed compared to the reflection in the church ...

cool church. it seems like you could've gotten a better shot from a different angle, though.

The overall reflection is really good. But some kind of different angle, or a crop, in which we could not see the trees would've been perfect. I know it's impossible sometimes.

This is amazing, as I love the modern look of the church against the sky.....
