    Nice. Number three is the best for me as it has great texture and the unusual angle makes it stand out from the crowd. Number 2 just doesn't work for me and number one is okay but nothing out of the ordinary. I keep going back to the third and see more detail every time. Wonder if it could be straightened a little?

    I'd agree that #3 is the best image. #1 is, with respect, the sort of 'visitor snap' of which there are probably thousands, but #3 shows creativity and imagination.

    One suggestion if you were to shoot it again - I'd maybe try and get it absolutely symmetrical and have the horizontal arm of the cross parralel with teh top of the frame.

    Thank Donald.Will go back when there is less threat of rain so i can take my time lining up the shot with a tripod.looking straight up hand held through the camera,is not to easy for me not to sway back and forth.
