In a city with a LOT of churches, this tower looks like it may have inspired Darth Maul...

nice clarity...foucs white ballence, exposure. But why the severe leaning angle. it dosn't lend anything to the photograph. Also the top of this tower is very interesting If you had more zoom capability to catch detail and another vantage point I think you might have a high scorer.

Interesting angle. I'm not sure the negative space had the impact that you might have wanted because the sky isn't even very close to a homogenous color or texture but your subject stands out nonetheless. Focus is a little soft (see top of spire and bricks at bottom of spire).

I know it was intentional, but I'm not sure the off-level works here. Great colors and a beautiful piece of architecture

I love the colors and textures in this photo, but the angle of the spire lends an unstable quality, as if it's falling. Maybe that's what you intended?

What a beautiful spire! The work on it is amazing. I'm not sure I like the crop or angle of the shot and the roof on the right is very distracting, perhaps if the shot was cropped a bit differently? A 5

This is a beautiful spire, and you've captured it well. I like the angle; it gives the picture a dynamic quality.

Any reason for the tilt ? I don't see how it improves this shot of a tower - its still just a tower, but now it is tilted

sorry the angle of the spire really detracts from the shot

While I think the colors work well and thesky is great I'm not crazy about the angle. In my opinion I think that it would have worked better as a straight forward shot.

fun angle. beautiful tower. The light seems a bit washed out - at least on the lighter middle section of the tower - I'd be tempted to play with the contract/brightness and see if I could get some better definition.

a daring and moving composition that really gives a feeling of imposing, soaring height.

The angle of the spire is distracting. Exposure color, etc is great!

I think you were going for a non-traditional composition on this, but it just makes me feel like I'm falling over in my chair. Lighting is nice.
