focus Man - yes I had to agree that lamp post was a little distracting, but I liked the cones Smile

Another nice upload of your favourite church! I have uploaded a mod because I always personally prefer to see, in this sort of architectural photography, straighter verticals, so I have done that for you to see. It also takes away that bit of lamppost intruding into the top RH Corner. You could also if you wished, and I would do so, clone out the traffic cones bottom right. the trees to each side make for a nice frame effect so I would guess no additional framing is required here. Some people do prefer to leave sloping verticals and sometimes they can enhance the picture artistically. This I think is more of a representational architectural shot and therefore my preference is for correction.
ISO wise I would have used f8 rather than f5.6 (if possible) and no exposure compensation. Given the sky a positive one would have been OK, but IMHO not a negative one.

It all seems to be leaning back with the perspective of being quite close and looking up. If possible, you need to keep the film/sensor vertical (ie parallel with the face of the building) in order to keep the picture 'squared'. If you can't get further away in order to reduce the angle you need to look up, use a wider focal length and crop the foreground, if not, you may have to adjust perspective digitally.
Some people don't mind the distortions, but to me, it's like a wide angle portrait, not usually the most flattering to he subject. Buildings have feelings too.

That said, it's an attractive building in a nice setting and the light is nice too. If you'd waited longer, the tree would have cast more in shadow, and the extra texture from more side-lighting would have been hidden. You need to lose the cones too, they attract my attention instantly, as does the bit of lamp, so a slight crop will lose those.

Well exposed in quite contrasty light, and you have very little choice over composition, so that's fine for me, too.

Decent shot, well composed. Colours look a little wrong? A bit yellow I think. Could be the autumn sun.
