Good go here Bryan! The B&W certainly makes for a dramatic sky.
Couple of things here - there's a definite tilt to the right, and the image is a little softer than f18 would seem to deliver. You can see in the tower to the left of screen that it's a little blurry. Not sure why! Maybe too much of a small aperture as it's a little past the sweet spot that on most lenses is around f9/f11 mark. I get this sometimes when I use f22 for night shots - a loss of sharpness!
That said - I really like the tones and dramatic sky here.

To start with...my apology to David. Yes, there is a "tilt" to the right but what does it matter? Tilt in relation to what?...the frame of my computer screen? Fact is..no two vertical lines are parallel so this thing about tilt and horizontality IN PHOTOGRAPHY is largely a figment of the imagination. Back to the image itself. It is really interesting with beautiful lines and patterns and shapes and a dramatic sky above. Well done.

Even when heavily damaged it's still an imposing structure, thanks for the info very interesting history. Nice presentation especially in B&W. Great pov and dof with nice contrast. Well done, tfs.

Nice shot Bryan. Love the pov, composition and presentation in B&W. The additions you made to the sky enhances the mood. Great job. TFS, Lori

Nice B&W shot of this ancient gate. A nice lead-in bridge which goes straight to the archway.
I'm against the tilt and perhaps you used a neat image corrector which produced a sort of blur to the result.
Over all an attractive result.
