The converging verticals all work together very well here, Graham: the green conifer and the lamp post all add interest and contrast well with the stonework of the tower.

I've got a crick in the neck from just viewing the image Tongue I guess this might be the view students have after a trip to the Uni bar!!
A 'tick' from me, I like the exaggerated perspective and detail.

and what is wrong! This certainly works for me and I love your frame.

Certainly a quirky pov Graham but, I think it works rather well, somewhere in your processing you are introducing maybe some unnecessary grey into the skies, possibly an extra layer and paint away, just my thoughts Graham,

the angle is excellent, agree on the bit too much grey though. Maybe it refelect well how green breaks through the grey though!
An interesting architectural study for sure.
