Church of Our Lady of Hope in Candolim, Goa, on a murky monsoon morning.  For more, see my blog post.

Very nice image but I'm a bit uncomfortable with the building. It doesn't seem "level" but it might be my eyes or my brain or simply the building isn't perfect. Now, that being said, I like your photo a lot.

Nice.
I think you can find a better location from where the church looks bigger,  you could use a different lens.
Very nice trees but everything looks very similar as far as color and texture, you have to look for distinct shapes or contrast, colors, texture and divide the image so it is not one and this same texture.

Very nice shot i just think there are couple of simple steps how you could improve it.
Learn about composition. Composition is the key to all landscapes.

Aloha.

If it's your eyes, Francois, the same thing is wrong with mine! I see the church slanting towards the upper right.

Lovely greens, as ever.

Francois and Jeremy,

See attachment.  The two towers are not exactly parallel and even the facets of the same tower show divergence.  So I had to make a choice. (Added: Puppet Warp would have solved the problem but I didn't go there.)

That's what I suspected. Buildings are not always perfect. I faced the same issue in Tuscany, I spent a very long time asking myself why a beautiful house looked weird, until I found that nothing was really straight.
