Arguably not a book, but I'm not splitting hairs. I think the perspective distortion really hurts this image. Also perhaps you haven't got far enough away, or you've cropped too close - including what I presume are more pillars either sie of these archways would emphasise the repetition more fully. As it is ... well, solid photography, but there's no drama, no mystery - if you could have shot it at night, with light streaming out of just one window ...

This is a great idea for the Romeo and Juliet title. Can't go wrong with a balcony.

Nice flow to the composition of the shot- but wherefore art thou, contrast?

The picture itself is nice, though it's a bit asymmetrical. A bit cropped off the right would help that part, if you're interested in symmetry. But the title isn't directly reflected in the photo. Romeo and Juliet did have a lovely balcony scene, but without having read the play or seen the movie, a person couldn't know that.

I like this image. I find the textures and colours and shadings very well done. The only thing that might have made it better is to crop more for the whole symetry aspect. A little more cropping on the right side to even things out. Still, excellent image. 7

Here a model, in the balony would have added lots of life.

Technically nice job, I am just missing some life from the corridors. For example 2 models, one for Romeo, and one for Juliet, without them it seems a bit empty, something that is lack of the most importantsubject. Anyway, sepia colours work well here. :-)

Wonderful building..looks just like I would have imagined. Good find. The light is a little bright but I did enjoy seeing this.

Where are the Romeo, and what about the Juliet?

this is a picture representing the content of the story, not a picture of the title.

seems to be a bit crooked ...

Interesting architecturally, and well done as a photo, but I think the picture needs some people to make the title

Looks more like a library than a romantic spot

with a shot like this, symetry is everything
