Here's a shot of the 60-story Hancock Tower in Boston - I'm guessing the architects were incorporating the shape of the church into its design so I composed it with the church's reflection.
I normally don't try stylized settings much but I quite liked its effect in the second shot.
Shot with my Nex-3 kit lens.

Kevin, your "stylized" second version really emphasizes the relationships between the Hancock Tower and these two other buildings. I didn't even notice the reflection of the church in your first even though you mentioned the architects' church theme... Gee, is the Hancock Tower a financial building....and if so, does that mean it's a corporate church? So my vote is 100% in favor of your stylized shot.
Great thread, this one is. From my point of view, I enjoy reading about the photographed architecture!

By the way, my photo is of the Tennessee Aquarium in Chattanooga, TN. Somehow my text did not show properly or something.

Thanks Jason, I did wonder what they were. I bet it's a super aquarium with all that "fenestration" light!

Wow, Will, it was certainly worth our wait to see these! Congratulations on your move being accomplished and upon these photos, too! If forced to choose, I'd say 3, 4 and 7 were my favorites.

Nice shots. Love the last one.

Thanks guys. Glad you like them, and I agree on your choices, though the first one is a particular favourite of mine but perhaps less of an architecture picture.

Great set Will. Love the last one. You are fortunate to have such a great location to shoot in. Someday I'm going to take a week in London, get up at 6 every morning and shoot all day.
