Oh, dear! It looks as if you fell victim to the Tack Sharp Syndrome -- the widely held misconception that only shots that are "tack sharp" are worthy of a high score. You've got great leading lines, and IMNSHO, the soft focus gives a lovely, moody feeling to the shot.

This is a very vast space, I image the acoustics are fantastic. There seems to be a little blur as if you were handholding at a slow speed.

Have you ever tried HDR? This would've been a PERFECT place to use it. The dynamic range of the church is too high for a single exposure. While the detail in the windows is retained, the rest of the image is underexposed.

great symetry; Goodexposure to keep the details in the window visible.

The focus seems to be a little off, however it could be just the lighting...I love the subject however

I have photographed the Duke Chapel :) It seems you used the same podium I did as support. You seem to have lost the color in the stained glass. When I photographed it I had trouble getting the white balance where it satisfied my eye and folks complained that it was green.

Looks like you tried to hand-hold this shot and it didn't come out quite as sharp as it needs to be. Other than the movement, it's a really nice picture.
