Excellent photo. The play between light and shadows is superb.

Greetings from the critique club :)

Well I don´t have a lot to say about this image as I find it very pleasant to look at, it´s a good shot but I still think I would not have voted it higher than a 6 if I had voted, mostly cause even though it´s a pretty good image, it doesn´t really grab me either.

It´s well composed and exposed, the depth of the image is great and it meets the challenge head on. I am not sure I like the blue toning but it´s not bothering me much either, I would have to see the shot with a more neutral color cast to decide wich I would prefer, like I said, this is nothing that is bothering me much and I completely understand why you chose the blue cast.

Post processing is nice, only thing I would have done diffrently was to even out the lighting a bit, darken the areas that are the brightest and brigthen the darkest areas but not by much so the image doesn´t loose too much contrast.

I just think this image lack´s that certain something to make it really pop off the screen, maybe something extremely interesting at the end of that hall? Don´t know...

Anyway, congrats on your new personal best :) Kind regards from Iceland, Lárus.

Nice composition! The blue cast adds a bit of interest to it.

there's plenty of rhythm here and it works well--it just does'nt have a "WOW" feeling to it. Perhaps if you chose a different tone or hue to it, or even make it a bit darker to add a sense of mystery--it would problably add more visual impact. good potential here.

I like how the perspective leads at a slight angle into the background.

Nicely composed with good leading lines.

This has beautiful lines and DOF. To my eye, the extreme cool color temp does not enhance this, however.

The whole thing feels like it is tilting to the right to me. Other than than, it looks great! I like the blue tones and the composition really draws me in.
