Obviously, I took this while climbing the tower at Salisbury Cathedral in Salisbury, England. I was on vacation there this past month and took a tour around the whole country. "Why ... you're traveling like an American!" I was told on more than one occassion.

179th place?
This is a great shot and worthy of a much better placement in my opinion.

I like the composition of this shot. The symmetry is so striking. Nice work!

Dang, I don't remember being able to go up higher when I visited a number of years ago. You were likely limited by the wide angle of your lens, but a vertical composition would have been much better to emphasize the narrow configuration of the church. The lighting was a pain, I'm sure, but something else needs to be done here as well. B&W? I think bump the midtones. 5

Wherein Thomas-a-Becket was murdered by the Crown. I only regret that oliver's Army failed to rid the country of the rest of the crowned heads. Nice photo, BTW. 8. EDIT EDIT = Thomas was murdered in Canterbury Cathedral... ;-)

Great sense of scale and depth.
As soon as this opened on screen, it was a wow moment.

To me this shot is beggin for a portrait orientation as opposed to landscape. I catch myself looking at the ceiling then trying to tilt my head down lower trying to see more of it. Hopefully I will be visiting Salisbury Catedral within a couple months and will be able to see if it is worthy of a portrait orientation. Still worth an 8 for the details and perfect exposure.

Nice perspective. Only bands of light streaming through the windows could improve on this I think.
