    Congrats, a deserving win! We need more objects like this right now when we see and hear so much division among people.

    Wow! Never thought I'd do this well in such a complex challenge. Thanks for all the votes and constructive comments. BTW - the image is a small part of the Baha'i temple on the North Shore of Chicago. The temple is magnificent and it is hard not to take a competitive image.

    Interesting to capture so many symbols in one place. Well-done.

    Good B&W photo and I like the message it gives.

    Impressive level of detail, needs rotated very slightly to the right

    What amazing piece of architecture! Very well captured in B&W.

    This does well in both a religious and architectural theme. Well exposed, my sense is that the shot is not balanced but I see it is when I measure carefully. I expect the effect is the result of the light wall on the left and shadowed wall on the right.This is a very nice shot.

    I love the enormous amount of details on the pillar and the... moschee? church? what is it? :) The symmetry works great here too, nice choice for the composition.
Spot on theme and brilliantly resolved, very high in my list!

    This is a great find for the challenge. The inclusiveness of the symbols is a wonderful statement. I love the detail in B&W, though it would have been nice to see a bit of colour in the sky to offset it.

    nice image, in my TT. I like the composition and focus, it may be a bit bright (or it may be my display screen)

    What a stunning structure! If only all peoples could integrate and unit in peace.
You have photographed this superbly, exposure is wonderful and I love the symmetrical composition.
This is my number one pick, without hesitation.
