Post-challenge: It is odd that I got so many negative comments on the processing of the sky when, in fact, there was no processing of the sky. Other than a curves adjustment with the RAW file, flipping half of the image and cloning out some anomalies, nothing was done.

Y, thanks for the greatest comment ever!

Nice simple caputre. The processing of the sky doesn't work and there appears to be a black hue up both sides of the tower which hurts the result. May have wanted to get a little closer and switched to portrait. Good Luck. 5.

A bit overprocessed. I can see some artifacts around the tower that have created a bit of a "dark halo" for lack of a better term.

I like the symmetry of this composition, but what stands out to me is the phallic tower engulfed in the dark womanly "V". Very erotic. The tree tops add to the allusion. Great shot.

nice colours . I find the tower to be too central
