    In general, I like it. Even though I like distortion, it may be a bit much here.

    Very dramatic. The perspective "distortion" adds a pretty neat effect here -- I really do feel like the church is towering with the dramatic clouds rushing over it. It actually feels a little bit cheesy, the effect is so strong.

    It all depends on what you were going for - I think that David said it well.

    If it were mine, I would just have to see how it looked with some of the vertical distortion corrected and touch of clean up on the colors. (I just played with it and I think removing some of the color tinge from the clouds really helps)

    BUT it does stand on its own now.

    I like the distortion and I think the tone mapping is pretty good to but I really love that sky.

    nice work.
    i think the distortion works well.
    i do think you could bring out some more details on the building for a more dramatic effect.
