This is a great shot - very imposing and impressive - but I have a little trouble with the title. The statue is indeed in the center, but it's small enough that the title sent me searching for it, rather than enjoying the imposing effect of the architecture, or the reflections of the sky on the window behind it, both of which draw my attention much more than the statue, which is to my eyes less-impressive against the scale and solidity of the building and sky.

I like the balance to this image. Good center weight focus, and the clouds to the left add an interesting contrast for me. I'd love to see this later/earlier in the day with a different light. 8

Lot of stuff going on here, but stll a very good shot. I may cropped it a little closer to the subject, leaving some of the shadowed detail above the circle down to the inscription. I don't see the sky adding a whole lot to this angle. Still a very good shot.

good eye centering the statue on the window, and also in the frame. I really like this! I wish the lighting weren't quite so harsh.

Absolutely stunning. Gorgeous colours and fantastic clarity. I also like the angle of this quite a lot. Beautiful - 10.

Wish there was a little more contrast between the statue and the window. The reflection of the clouds in the window blend and obscure the statue from standing out. Good angle on the photo.
