    This was taken with a Canon EOS Rebel K2.
    Sorry, didn't remember to take down the exposure settings.
    The two pictures I have here are before and after cropping. Let me know which one you guys prefer in addition to what you think of the picture overall.
    Thanks a lot!

    After Cropping

    After a second Cropping for a different effect. Does anyone else think I could have shown more of the sky here to emphasize the vertical effect?

    I think the first shot is the best. It makes more of the varying roof lines and vertical edges, which I like.
    The main thing that is wrong with it is that the central spire and the sky have pretty much the same tonal value so they have a tendency to merge.
    A yellow filter would have darkened the blue sky enough to make a seperation - and it would have lifted the clouds out as well.
    An orange would have made it even more dramatic.
