    Gorgeous image; very artistic!!

    Suggestions:

    As much as I love this photo, I think it would look better as a horizontal format.

    Response:

    Thanks.  Unfortunately it's one of those cases where there are messy, unattractive buildings on either side, and I also wanted to emphasize the steeple, with the "reaching for heaven" sort of feeling.

    Beautiful colour and tone. Not sure what editing job has been done to the sky and the  foreground, but it definitely complement the church really well. A very nice 'painting'.

    The textured feel of this photo works really well with the subject

    The treatment / filters suit the subject very well.  The image exudes a sense of a quiet past.  Very rich.  Lovely textures in the building.

    Suggestions:

    The image feels a tiny bit crowded on the right, especially as that is where the door is.  If the circumstances permit just a bit more room, the image would be even stronger.

    Response:

    Really ugly building to the right.

    I love the treatment applied to this photo.

    Suggestions:

    Could try cropping a bit off the top to give the church more balance.

    Response:

    Good point.  I loved the carrying over of the brown shades from the foreground, and the texture, but it could be a conflict.  However, when I crop some off, the "reach" for the sky seems less dramatic and I find it sort of "traps" the church.  Hmmm.

    Looks like a painting for me. Such a great composition. Good bokeh.
