What a strange building; looks like the Batcave! You gave it a "haunting" sphere....

Thank you! Yeah the storm created a really cool "cloudscape". The "haunting" effect comes from a small amount of vignetting around the edges of the photo, that plus the brightness of the chapel allows the photo to really pop.

I was stationed at the Academy in the 80's. Man I'm getting old. Beautiful capture of a very intriguing building.

Thank you so much for your kind comment, I really do appreciate it. I live in Colorado Springs and my dad is also in the Air Force, so I see the Chapel a lot, and was able to get that one lucky shot where it all came together. Thank you again.

A very interesting photo with the cloud colour and formation together with the vertical lines of the building as well as lines in the foreground

A really great shot and it's excellent the way you have taken advantage of the weather. It give a eerie feel. It's well worth a prize, good luck. Mike

This was shot right as a a storm was coming over the Air Force Academy's Chapel. The clouds just broke to allow the sun to shine through some of the clouds, thus the white spot. No Photoshop was used. I hope you like it.
