Memorial of honor

I captured this on a trip to victoria. And edited it in grayscale and darken & deepen it a little. Should I crop it a more from the bottom? and I tried to remove those two birds but could not manage it. Help.

I like this, - nice work. The toned mono look good.

I wouldnt crop the bottom, - I like the sweeping edge, - however it does benefit if you add a little more sky at the top, as in the mod.

Heres how to do that: using the crop tool, select the entire image; at the centre of the top, you will see a small box; click and hold it, then drag it upwards a little to make space; then press enter. You will now have a taller image, with a new area on the top which will either be white, or black, depending on your foreground colour. Then, using the clone brush. clone the sky into the new space. To clone, place the brush on the area of sky you want to copy, the alt-click it, release, and then click in the new space and move the brush around. Do it slowly and carefully. Control Z will undo any error.

The birds can be removed in a similar way. Zoom well in to the image and close them out the same way, using existing stone work as the source for cloning. Use a small brush. You can change the size of your brush easily, [ for smaller, ] for larger.

All done in the mod.

"Did you consider using tour Lens Correction tool?" However as I thought of that, you would need more space around the building in order to accommodate the lens correction...

A nice clean shot, my personal preferences for architectural pictures though include corrected verticals. I would leave the base there, it is always good for decent bases to give balance.
I have uploaded a mod for you to see the effect of corrected verticals and I have also lightened the shadows a little as you can see.
