    I would have liked to get a bit closer view, but in my favs.

    Great capture, perhaps a bit more contrast to add depth.

    This is high in my top ten but would be even higher if you had done two things. Cropped the photo to fill the frame with the arch removing the distracting side landscape, and increase the contrast to make it stand out from the fabulous sky.

    I feel like I am missing something by not seeing this in colour. You have captured the detail so beautifully that I wonder why you didn't crop more closely to the structure. Still a lovely shot and in my TT.

    Nice motive for the theme. I would be tempted to clone out the flag, it's a nice focus point and aesthetically beautiful but I think here distracts a little, given the theme. Wondering how this scene looks in color too, the punchy colors could go well with a powerful blue sky.
Anyway I think it's a nice take for the challenge and comes in my top ten, good job!

    Unsure of the PP used but this is wonderful in black and while. The image itself is elevated by the processing.

    Dramatic shot, good choice of B+W. I think a bit more brightness and contrast would improve it. in my TT

    A striking piece of architecture. Consider using perspective correction, or alternatively, move closer to make the keystoning really dramatic. Either way, I'd clone out the flagpole, which makes a rather secular distraction from the religious content.
