Three Guardian Angels

The Church of the Guardian Angels in Mile End Road needed to be included in my Point me to the Skies series just for its name alone! Also, it is a very quirky design; and I was reliably informed by a passer by who goes in the five times a day, that it is 147 years old . Anyway, this took me three goes before I felt I had it 'spire suitable'. I love the first one (top) but I wanted something a tad neater. The second effort resulted in a distorted view owing to my close proximity and having to look up at a more acute angle. And lastly, the minimal lines with a way better standing point. Close up studies are great, but remember, what ends up on your paper, is what you see.
