This is the church of Hvalsnes, a stone's throw, so to speak, from Keflavík international airport. I had to expose for the sunburst, so the church is severely underexposed. That explains the noise.

Greetings from the Critique Club.
Hello Egill, I’m Alan.

As a member for just short of a year, you should know by now a 6+ score in this crowd is a damn good score. Your exposing of the sunset seemed to work out well, but your white balance seems a bit off as the window frames seem a bit grey (a quick fix might be in the ability to open JPEG images in Camera RAW using Bridge in Photoshop, PM me on how) I like the isolation of the church but wonder if the negative space on the right might be cropped out a bit. Possibility adding a second subject (person) on the right might have added interest.
The above is only advice if your looking for a improved score on DPC, personally I like it the way it is. Good photo, good score, I hope you enjoyed capturing, as much as I, the view..

19th? Really?!

This was my #2 pick.

Underrated, in my humble opinion.

Perfectly composed shot. Contrast seems a bit soft but nice image.
