I like this perspective better than the other one I think. Very ornate building, and nice capture.

Has a very unreal look to it. Nice job, didn't get a ribbon, but easily could have!

Amazing shot! If people only knew how difficult this angle must have been and to get the steeple of the other church (which is far away) in between...this will make a great postcard.

Steeples perhaps....depsite the title, this is very fine. I like the symmetry and the look of these against the muted tones of the sky.

A beautiful symmetric entry that should score very high. The church is slightly off center. I'd like it dead center or obviously off to one side or the other. Good luck!

tighter crop and I would like it more, and a little brighter whites

Beautiful lighting, and very interesting composition. The architectural style of this building reminds me of the photo of the building that ribboned in the black and white challenge. I think I would have cropped a bit more off the left so that it matched the right side, since this is clearly (?) intended to be a centered composition.

thats so cute, could see it on a greeting card, whole series, think it needed
to rotate a bit to the left? could be an optical allusion?
takes me back in time somehow? 8

Sky could maybe be a bit bluer, but that's about all I can say other than "Great Work!"

Where the h*** did you climb to get this?!

Very creative, but is it slightly tilted? A composition like this has to be as straight and symmetrical as possible, and this looks ever so slightly tilted to the right.. or maybe it's just me. Anyway, good stuff.

upon reflection I am bumping this shot to the top 3 in my pantheon. I love the framing, allowing the sky enough room to push back against the spires; audacious and lovely. The perfect bi-lateral symetry and cool, almost clinical color tones will cause some to criticise your composition but this works very well IMHO.

Certainly has the wow factor..

Excellent picture. Wonderful lighting, interesting composure. I wish that I could be there again, I haven't been in Reykjavik in many years. The possibility for beautiful pictures like this abound, it's nice that you have the eye to take advantage of them.

I recognise this from a past blue-ribbon winner! Very simple yet beautiful composition aided by the dreamy background. well done.

Nice shot, I like the positioning at the bottom.

hvar fannstu þetta sjónarhorn eiginlega?
Ætlarðu að bjóða mér í heimsókn?
Really nice comp. Perfect shadows. Rather uninteresting sky, though.

This is a great shot! I keep being drawn to the slightest imbalance in the symmetry though? Not sure what it is - perhaps a tiny anticlockwise rotation is needed, not sure...

Good choice of subject, nicely done.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

A bit too much sky...Maybe a tighter crop.

Váá!!! Þetta er einstök mynd að ná Hallgrími á milli turnanna á Háteigskirkju.
