I would like to have seen more of the ceiling behind the arch to really illustrate this complex architecture. Good job of representing this!

The picture leaves me with a feeling of incompleteness, there is something here that I'm not seeing. I think part of the problem is that I get a feeling that the picture is falling over to the left. Maybe a slight rotation clockwise would help. It may also be that I am wanting to see stuff a little farther down, the focus seems to be on the supposed line between the ceiling and the walls, with not enough of either to be really interesting.

This one stopped me dead in my tracks. Thank you for not making this into a B & W. Great use of a border as well. This is an awesome photo. Congrats.

excellent image. i expect this will do very well. Not sure I like your composition but I have no doubt that it was fully intentional so i won't get into it. Besides that, the brightness in the upperleft is a little distracting although well exposed considering what the scene must have been like. 9

This is a beautiful capture. My only suggestion would be to rotate the whole image on its left/right axis to have the lights leading the eye left to right, as in how we read, rather than back out of the frame. 6

Elegant shot with a helping title. The blue light coming from the right is maybe out of balance with the warm tones in the rest of the image?
