excellent shot, the crescent moon does add allot to the presentation of the shot.

Hi,

That's a pretty impressive image of Saint Francis Xavier College Church (if I'm not mistaken).

This is the second example of the use of HDR in a B&W shot that I've seen today and both have been outstanding.

The framing with the Moon in the upper left is just perfect.

I know that shot was work, but it was certainly worth the effort. Has a nice, formal look to it.

Zig- yes, you are correct, that is Saint Francis Xavier College Church, nice catch!

Thank you everyone for your kind words. I was stepping outside the box a little on this one and was quite pleased with how it turned out. I was hoping that the work I had done on it hadn't biased me too much, so I am glad it worked well for others too!

A wonderful shot - definitely spectacular. It might be "outside the box" as far as what one classically thinks of for a building composition, but if we all took just those classic shots, we'd all be bored. It's finding the unusual scene that makes photography infinitely interesting for me (and what I've been struggling with).
