An old church building that I was told about that I took at around 4:30 Sunday afternoon. I almost skipped this contest untill I took this picture (along with many others of the building) and knew it was the one! Hope it was the right one ;)

Once again, thanks for commenting everyone! I would have loved to have this picture of an OLD(yes, its old) CHURCH with a blue sky but the angle of the sun at that time of day ruins it. Oh well. I just keep picking up new ways to improve my pictures. Even though my current picture isnt doing well, hopefully my pencil will. Hopefully. :0 )

Great shot. The only suggestion I have is maybe the shot coud have been taken to capture more of the building. Or cropped to keep out the sky. The sky is a bland and distracts from the building. If the sky was blue with poofy clouds it would have fit in better.

Something old. Use your photographic technique to emphasize the age of your subject.
Composition - good. The angles bother me a little
Technical Aspects - quite good
Meets Challenge - yes
Visual Impact / Originality - good

there are a lot of features I like about this photo--colors, subject, clarity, but the opposing angles distract me. I also wonder what the sky was like. It is nice though---8

Looks pretty nice and new to me. Nice photo though.

very nice texture in this photo... i have a personal issue... it's just my own preference, but i have a hard time with photos that show a large section of a door that don't show where it meets the ground... it's just an aesthetical thing... I need to have some sort of 'path' to that door :) good work otherwise :) = 7 - jmsetzler

I like the color in this.

Perspective may have been batter a little back. This would have allowed you to shoot aiming more out of line with the light source, and might have prevented the bloom over the roof edge.

I really like hte red door. Very nice picture and I like the perspective. The sky is a little blown out at the upper right, and I only notice it because it seems to make the details up there disappear. Still an awesome shot, I think. karmat

I like the view as composed, but get hung up on the angle of the red door -Vs- the angle of the tower. For me they create a tension that might not be present if composed from a different angle. One suggestion would be if possible, to use more telephoto and get farther back. This will compress the image and give a bit more emphasis to the tower. If I'm not mistaken, it will also lessen the difference between the angles of these two elements.

It looks kinda new to me. But interesting contrast w/ the door. Overall kinda bland photo.

I think this would have been a good one for the Texture challenge. It works great for this challenge also. I used to do stone fireplaces and can apreciate how much work a whole church would be.

I sure would like to know where this is....it looks familiar.

I bet someone will say "This would be great with NICE BLUE SKY" pay no attention to them ,, I like it just the way it is.

I would have liked it more with a dramatic sky. The composition seems a bit cramped too, sorry(4) Perhaps having the whole building visible would have helped...

Where is this?
