Thanks for all the comments! It's not the "leaning tower of Piza" but I guess you could say it is the "leaning cupola of Longview!" It is actually leaning!

I really hated those wires in the background and tried this thing from different angles. My other alternate was with a bunch of dead trees and that looked terrible! Lost all of the sky with that one. The best shot would have been if I could have stood in the middle of the street, but alas traffic wouldn't stop for the challenge! LOL!!

I have taken your comments and played around with the pic using some PhotoStudio enhancers and it does look better, I was even able to get those pesky wires out of the background!! So thanks again for all the comments!

Don't you hate it when wires ruin a great photo opportunity? But it's still a nice photograph :)

The highwires don't help this photo. Sorry, but it seems a little boring.

obviously it wasn't possible for this challenge, but the lines in the back are distracting. still a great pic though.

just not interesting enough. Could of used a different angle or time of day.

Very nice colors and composition. I'd like to see less of a slant -- is it the leaning tower of pisa? :)

Interesting photo. The wires detract from the photo.

Interesting sky. Are you as frustrated by wires as I am?

nice framing; _almost_ got the beauty of the clouds in the background; the wires are disruptive; the light looks directionless, and doesn't particularly enhance the cupola.

nice one. would like the cam to have been rotated a little more to get the bldg vertical. would be pref'd in this case to keeping horizon flat

Nice colors, but a little off-balance. Although I'm sure many folks will say they hate power lines, I think you could have counter-acted them by tilting everything left a bit.
