Definitely a country's spirit, but seems to lack something to make this image more interesting--probably the composition but not sure.

Love the colors, sharpness and light! Great choice to depict London! Maybe a straight framing would be better to show the british formality, but the tilted option is nice too!

This is really sharp, I would have missed it if I had not seen it the second time! Also fits the challenge really well! Would have loved to see a little more play with curves in photoshop but I am just being picky! bumping up to 8

Lovely image of this landmark. A very difficult picture well taken.

Big Ben is definitely an iconic symbol of England. The color and clarity of the shot is wonderful. I like how you give us a sense of this towering monument by the angle that seemingly makes it shoot up to the sky. It makes me think that I am looking up to view the clock tower's majesty. It really gives the static shot a sense of height.

Nicely done. Just the right amount of tilt, very symbolic of England

Big Ben sure is something that we identify with England but does it define the spirit? I think so, it's been a cornerstone of England for many years, something the English rely on in a history that has been full of upheaval. Well done.
