    I thought this will place higher. Very dramatic image.

    Nice lines and tones. I like the offset perspective of the arches which adds interest. In my top 3.

    The skyline with the clash of the crucifix against the steeple is a distraction. The contrast of texture and shapes below is simply outstanding. and the small trees provide exactly the right amount of relief from all the stone. Well done. Monochrome was a good choice too.

    Babysister: are the points too sharp for you, or do you mean something else? FYI - the reason the left side appears to lean backward is due to two things . . . the effect of distortion from the wide angle I used at close proximity (not my preferred distance, but I had no choice), and that the arches are part of a stand alone entry wall constructed at an angle to the church; i.e., the wall is not parallel to the building and therefore appears to recede (get smaller) on the left. I was hoping for the artistic "fresh look" Jade O alluded to - LOL!

    I like this but my eye is troubled by the different points of the arches. The left side appears to be leaning backwards.

    Wonderful detail. I think the B&W treatment intensifies the architecture, and gives the front entrance a very powerful appearance.

    I like the double arch effect and the perspective that you achieved. B&W is quite effective.

    Nice capture but a little off square centered which somehow gives it a fresh look. Unsure how to feel about this one. because it has impact.

    Dang that tilt! Now I see it....

    Plenty of arches for the theme, but IMO the dark grainy sky is a big distraction.

    Arch within arch, suits the subject nicely. I find the dark sky a bit depressing. But effective as a contrast, I admit.

    Beautiful image. The tilt of the main church building is distracting, but still in my TT. I think it's very effective in B&W.

    What tilting are you referring to, Steve? There is actually a street directly in front of this church with parked cars where I took the picture - so I was limited to how far I could back up to get all the elements lined up to my liking (and perhaps yours).

    Neat idea to use the arch to frame the arched entrance to the church. Very well exposed and processed. The tilting does bother me though. I like the contrast in the tones of the front arch and the building behind and particularly the dark cross the light cross. I do wish there was a tiny bit of space between darker cross and the steeple.
