Was there still snow on the ground in Stoney Creek on March 7th?

I'm happy to hear "tilt" = "rotate" :-) Congrats on your first ribbon! Cool shot, in more ways than one. As an aside, even if it WERE advanced editing I wouldn't have risked removing the cannon plug :-)

Love the image.

Hopefully "tilt" means rotate to get the tower to a pleasing angle.

Congrats on the ribbon.

More tower-esque than most of the many towers in this challenge.

Ooh I like it (although I like crazy HDR images too so don't listen to me), nice tones. The purple and green blobs are a little distracting, but the stone brickwork and the canon are ace.

I really like the strange colours in this picture. Did you tweak the colour balance?

A little over edited, in my opinion, but a really great shot.

Nice shot of an old structure.

The front object (what is that? a canon?) is distracting. I would have gone from a different angle I think. The subject is beautiful though.

Very fitting as the tower, though I think an angle without the cannon would have been better.

Nicely processed.

Is this an HDR image? Feels heavily edited. Maybe I'm wrong...

wow

Best tower shot in the challenge by a long way. Nice exposure for basic editing, I'm guessing lots of fill light, recovery, and clarify to give the HDR-esque look. Nice shot
