Dang. I forgot to leave one of my comments about excessive JPEG compression. I can correct that oversight now, however. (You don't get off that easy!) There are a ton of compression artifacts visible on and around the edges of the building. Your tiny file size of 37K reflect gobs of compression being used. When you save, always adjust JPEG compression so that your file size is as large as possible, but within the challenge limit. (200k for this one)

Added: It figures that the one time I overlook excessive compression, everybody else noticed it and commented on it!

Looks like an old print. Nice. Not sure everyone will like it, though.

Sadly I think something has happened in your size conversion, its pixelated badly - otherwise it would have been a beautiful shot with lovely tones

Woulda, coulda, shoulda. This image would have been a top contender from both a technical and artistic standpoint if only it had been more sharply focused or if a different filter effect, such as the use of gauze or Vaseline on the lens to create a more "gothic" effect had been used. An image that could have been a contender if more creativity had been used in composition.

Interesting shot although very pixelated on my monitor.
