Glorious light with interesting asymmetry. I like the blues and the yellows with that hint of pink at the ceiling. It reminds me of the work of Robert Irwin.
My one quibble is the skewed roof beam. It would have made a more pleasing image (for me alone perhaps) had you skewed the image to justify that beam and the side walls from keystoned,into perfect symmetry to allow the walls and the decayed roof to be the only things out of balance. It is pretty easy to do and legal in this rule set, and the sort of edit that would have stilled the image into a pure exploration of light

There's a clinical feel to this brought on by the sharp angles and edges, despite the evidence of dirt on the floor and a tattered ceiling. What makes this image for me is the overall iridescence. There's a sense of expectation here, as if the building itself is going to pull off some transformative miracle. Fine capture of this elusive atmosphere.

Stark symmetry.

It would be really nice to see this on the front page. Compositionally it is top notch: finely balanced, strong leading lines, well lit, nicely processed, tack sharp. Just superb technical work.

Where it goes wrong with me, personally, is the lack of pathos. It is clearly an abandoned, neglected building but there is nothing there to wrench the heart. For me, it is simply too sterile.

Don't misunderstand, were I voting, this would be a nine from me simply on technical merits. Quite sincerely, I hope this ribbons for you. Best of luck.
