Lovely building, lovely photo.

A very interesting shot. I like the fact that you got a couple of bonus stars in the frame, too. I can't see how this happened, most of the shot is terribly clear, but a couple places on the tower seem distorted, like under the circle that is divided into three sections and below and to the right of the clock. Could these be caused by moving shadows (trees)? Odd crop job in my opinion, but you must have had your reasons. Finally, the window in the bottom probably should have been cropped off. With all these comments, you'd think I was panning this shot, wouldn't you? (have I kept you in enough suspense?) 8 Swash

Nice shot. Well lit subject or nice camera!

I liked the idea, but to me, the tower would look better if it were more to the right.

a little cropping on both sides to just frame the central tower would have made this picture more dramatic

Exposure might be a tad too long, as the contrast between building and sky is almost unreal.

very nice shot... i like the placement of the subject and the negative space here.. night time shots like this work well.. it provides a naturally dark background to make the subject stand out... good work :) - jmsetzler

nice lighting, but the with the lit up clock, it doesn't seem as old as it probably is.

looks a lot like the math building Ayres at Univ of TN - I was in class once when the tower was hit by lightning
nice job with exposure

I really like this. it looks like it's watching the night sky. I wish it were a little further set back so there was more of the sky (it's watching) in the image. 8 Lisa
