Dramatic angle, really emphasizes the line of the church and all its great details. The warm light is also very nice. Well done!

Interesting converging verticals perspective pointing up with a wide angle lens. Good lighting, including in the sky.

May not appeal to some but I really like the perspective distortion. The colors are brilliant and it looks like early or late sun - absolutely golden hues! The sky is positively unreal. Great job!
