A tall monument at the south end of the quad at the University of Alabama. I had some other wide angle shots which showed the height of the monument, but those are kinda cliche around here, and I liked this one best for some reason. I wish I hadn't cropped off the rightmost part of the text though, I bet I will lose points for that.

As I stood near it taking photos, it chimed a couple of holiday tunes with impressive volume.

Burned outside area, dodged letters area.

Well, arcy, I guess you should have gone with the cliche, huh? I'm so sorry -- I think it deserved a higher score. Even being that I'm an AU fan, I gave it an "8" :)

Not the best angle to fi t the landmark requirement.

It's a picture of letters on a building. Not interesting.

I like the idea - certainly think the angles and incidences of the stonework make for an interesting idea. I'm not certain about your crop though - there doesn't seem basically to be enough of that stonework in shot, or of brickwork, or of sky, and the failure to include the entire name bugs me ... placing those letters on the very strong diagonal makes them the definite subject here, yet to my eye it is those angles of stone that hold the visual interest, but your shot constantly pulls the eye away from them.

This photo leaves me wondering if there is more to this building than the name.
Too bad the name is cropped/cut off.
