Thanks, Vicki, and I wish I knew the answer to your question!

Hi Steve. I missed this one too. It's terrific. Those storm clouds really give great emphasis to the whole. Beautiful architecture. (And why the bloody H does Man think it's necessary to destroy what he builds without thinking.) Vicki

Many thanks, Alandra and Mary. I agree with you both that it's the sky that really makes this image.

An imposing scene with the dramatic sky and picturesque courthouse. Well done!

late with this comment, Steve. I love this one. As Don wrote, the touch of blue in the clouds really adds to this. And the colouring of the clouds "matches" the colour of the architecture. wonderful

Thanks Tania and Don! Yes Tania, it does seem improbably large - perhaps they have a lot of criminals to deal with! Don, the tardises were all off visiting other galaxies at the time!

Great looking capture Steve, the sky makes it, love the small touch of blue with the dark clouds. Really sets a mood with such a beautiful building. Very nice work. Although I would have been tempted to place a few tardises here and there :-) Don

What a huge court house!! Ours would fit through the front doors lol. What an amaising building I love the clouds it adds to the drama.

Actually this was my first visit to Amiens, although I've driven close by on many occasions. It's an impressive city, although much damaged in WW2. Well worth a visit!
