I'd agree that this is the best one....you should use your touchup brush in lightroom to try and remove that pole right in the middle...shoudl be pretty easy to do. I would also bump up the Clarity on each column. Also touch up your black/white a little. Hold the Alt button down (if using pc) and then slide the black slider until you see black appear...same thing for white except do it to where you see white apppear.
Add a slight vignette to it.
Also what was your settings on this pic? Do you know where your focus was? Should have been on back column.
was using automatic. Don't laugh. My favorite is probably the one of the descending columns. On one end the columns are vibrant, strong. On the other end worn down to the base, crumbling, decaying. Tells a story.
