A Friendly opinion from the Critque Club.

The Candy Coating
As a Virgo, being both Logical and Analytical, I tend to place a lot of emphasis on verticals and horizontals. Here you have met that challenge perfectly. The slightest tilt/lean could throw off the balance of the shot, but your alignment is near perfect. This is a pleasent shot to study and becomes deeper the more one looks at.

Hypnotizing and calculated all at the same time. The lines lead us inward to a door that is nicely situated in the shot.

The Reds and Greens contradict each other nicely, especially being seperated by the hypnotizing detailed artwork on the beams as one gets drawn farther into the shot.

The lighting and tonal qualities appear to be spot on as to what you saw when looking down this corridor. I can only imaging others who have stood in the same spot could not have enjoyed it visually as much as the 3-Dimensional reality that you have captured here.

My Nit Picks:
I like the foundations of the pilars and the almost white cement is fine, but I do tend to be stalled as I am drawn into the shot by the two shadows on the floor where it appears that the cement is missing or broken. Perhaps dodging or ligthening those shadows to a light gray might take some of the abruptness off those shadows, rendering them less a distraction.

From about the middle to the top between the left front pilar and the second pilar I am picking up a hint of the same detailed artwork that is garnishing the beams. It is peeking through and appears as spots to the viewer. I might darken that area to a point that they are no longer a distraction.

My final nit pick and in all reality would be taken care of once the shot is matted, are the green verticals near the very top of the shot. Actually the whole space above the first beam seems to be out of place in my mind. Again a Mounting and Matting this shot should come right down to the top edge of the first beam covering that little distraction. The green verticals between the first and second beams are fine as they seem to blend into the illusion.

Superb shot and one to be very proud of. What would be fun is to print this a 16x20 and put it at the end of a hallway of a drab office space, one for the colors but moreso to give the illusion that the hallway keeps going on.

What an amazing 3D effect. The colours, perspective and symetry of this shot are superb, the longer you look at it the more you are drawn in to it. Adding to my faves.

At first glance, I felt like I needed sunglasses to see this.
Then stopped, stared and studied.

A couple things really stand out here.
The 3D effect this has after looking at it for a while, almost not knowing if it's coming at me or going away from me,
and the how evenly lit this is, particularly in the painted ends of the beams.
Impressive.

I didn't vote in this Challenge, but I thought it was yours (that is, I thought it was in Korea rather than Japan).

Good color and use of columns for leading the eye inward..very graphic and interesting composition.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/03/2005 07:28:26 AM
I wonder if this would have been better cropping off the bottom, up to the back wall's bottom rectangle, and using just the top.

Enchanting oriental feel to this one. Very nice picture.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/03/2005 01:09:55 AM
Impressive temple archectural view, great colour, sharp...... my one regret is awkward crop format instead of square or full frame.

Nicely done... the only thing that bothers me is the fact that it is not quite straight on.

Very striking-colourful and sharp. Perhaps not quite centred as much as it could be.

You have chosen a great subject here IMO, but the composition seems off balance.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/29/2005 08:27:53 AM
i like it, but i think you need to shift the frame a bit

this is amazing, absolutely gorgeous
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/28/2005 04:51:13 PM
Awesome shot, great colors. The only thing maybe is the two parts on the floor where it is darker are a little distracting. Other than that, everything looks perfect!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/28/2005 03:50:51 PM
good idea. i wish the ceiling and ground complimented each other better. i'm wondering if you turned this photo upside down whether it would have more visual impact.

This picture looks upside down to me. The green looks like stairs. The colors are nice. Lines seem to lead to nowhere.
