    I'm glad you had a title on this one, cause I never would have figured out what it was! Congrats on a strong finish!

    Love it when an iconic structure is presenting in a way I've never seen before. The use of the sun is superb. Truly deserving of a top finish.

    Nothing blue about this - a soaring spirit for sure. Beautifully composed - love the glint of light off the top. Well done.

    Never seen The Arch this way! You captured the subject well. If you had not mentioned observation windows, I would have thought this a very thin metal sculpture of some kind. in my favs.

    Terrific shot - especially with the reflection of the sun playing off the surface. You've chosen a really interesting angle. Of course I just had to find out more about the Arch - and it's certainly something I would love to see someday.

    I do not know this structure. But what I can guess is that you gave some thought to how this should be presented. If you read the photo books and listen to the gurus they will tell you to walk around a subject, get to know it and then choose a way to present it that shows you take. I think you have done just that.

    A really alternative view of the Gateway Arch that didn't came to my mind.
The Gateway Arch is a highly symmetric object. Nice to see a shot where it is not symmetric at all. Good job!

    Very clean and fresh perspective of an iconic structure; absolutely the right title.
