Rather hefty overexposure at the top really kills that part of the image for me; I would have rather had a darker building if it meant the cross and top of the building were visible

Shame about the highlights, just a bad time of day to photograph such an object. This definately shares style elements with the blood church in Petersburg, altough this is much simpler. The flow of the composition is good, but the lighting is just way too harsh.

I like that you framed the church with the trees and bell tower. This looked to be a difficult lighting situation and it resulted in your photo being overexposed which has caused you to loose detail.

The sky is overexposed to the point of washing out the roof of the building. I would rather see the top part correctly exposed and the bottom part a bit darker.

Lovely shot - a shame that the highlights at the top are a bit blown.

Upper left corner, too washed out.

Charming picture. The sky and top steeple is a bit blown out, but the detail on the doorway is excellent.

The sky is rather blown, and the position and prominence of the tree forces the eye away from the subject, I think.

Overexposed at the top from Post Processing, takes out the symbols of the religion.
