This structure is called "Sticks of Fire", which is the meaning of the Native American name "Tampa".

I cloned out a distracting building that was on the right.

Greetings from the CC. Great building, well captured. Nice sharp clear image. The 'flames' are wonderful.
My only possible critiques are: one the building looks slightly tilted to the right. But it could just be the way the flame on the right sticks out. ANd the shot may have worked well with the building being composed a little bit more to the tright vs. a central crop. I really like the red brick in the front to add some color to it. Well done. Keep shooting!

Very nice use of perspective. At first glance, I actually thought the 'flames' where integral in the building. Excellent.

Great eye...I might have cropped the bottom a little tighter...but super shot.

I had to look at this a couple times to really see what it was, that there was actually 2 separate items here. Challenge met, composition and color is good.

Great use of foreground and background elements to 'create' an interesting image. This certainly does look like a tower on fire. If I were to be very picky I would suggest cropping off the bottom just past the plague so it gives it a more 'natural' look/feel and not just a building and a work of art.

Pick one line to be your parallel and stick with it---otherwise, as is the case here, the illusion is a tilted building.

interesting framing and vantage point. a little pixelated or blurry at the bottom.
