Challenge: Let's Get Minimal! (Minimal Editing)
Collection: Portfolio
Camera: Olympus OM-D E-M1

This is famous Toledo Cathedral, whose construction started in 1226.

Re several comments about a slight offset: I tried to do my best in leveling this shot, but the lack of tripod and a constant flux of tourists made this exceedingly difficult :). I thought I was pretty close though. Of course, if it wasn't minimal editing, this show could be much improved.

Hey Tom, organs are indeed the Baroque addition, but the architecture itself is of course Gothic, and Gothic IS medieval :). This is a 13-century cathedral which squarely belongs to Middle Age. Thanks for your comment anyway!

Interesting use of the fisheye with this subject matter; the central elements are just a bit off centre to the right, however, which detracts from the strongly symmetrical composition. The blown out bright spots of the lights, especially on the left side, also take away a little from an otherwise strong image.

I'm going to give it a shot and do a little critique. The building is fantablulous! I would probably want to just sit in there and take it all in. Now for the critique, the color is magnificent and as I can tell this photo meet the challenge nicely, as for the technical stuff the photo could have been rotated to make it a little more centered. This is one of those photos that does remarkably well being precisely centered. I give an 8 for this
