Took this when took a one day trip to Philly:-) The weather was NICE for about an hour after we got off the bus Independence Hall was our last stop before heading home. I like the clock tower and thought it would be a nice shot. As you can see it was cloudy and gloomyI thinkthe tree helped liven this shot. What do you think? Thanks for looking.

I love Philly! There's the Liberal Arts College of TU whose studends I lecture when they are in Turkey for the Summer School Program held every year
I too find the tree an important component of your photo. Its golden leaves makes a great match to the gilded figures, hour hand and minute hand of the clock
However, I found the edifice on the lefthandside, which should be beautiful in itself, to be somehow distracting for the composition. Maybe you can simply blur it at PS:idea:

Thanks Bahadir! I really wanted to clone the building out but it was too difficult around the tree

I wish you had sufficed with removing the building on the lefthanside, which is quite desirable and has been a good job , since I find the stark sky at the background rather distracting
