    How could I make this image more visually appealing. I feel the angle is unique but it doesn't quite have that WOW to it.
    Taken with my Canon 20D & 17-40 F4L

    Model: Canon EOS 20D
    Shutter Speed: 1/500 second

    Is that more what you were hoping for?

    Just a quick curves adjustment and unsharp mask for contrast.

    Maybe it would be better if you had framed the cupola up to its peak. Just a thought.

    ahhh, It would have helped if you stepped back and put it more into context i believe.

    Why? What is the purpose of looking through something that we cant even tell what it is? It's just confusing, and kind of looks like an accident.

    I agree with harrisoncj on this..... This is not an abstract, i think you needed to show more of this dial, if you choose to include it with the subject building.. The photo just lacks any contrast, and the drab sky doesn't help...

    I also think you should have incl. the entire top of the building..

    its worth a re shoot...
