Stunning!!!

Having been inside the Nat'l Cathedral before, I appreciate this image. The subtle lighting really highlights the angles and curves.

Great job and congrats on the top 10 finish.

I like the colour very much. However, it seems like the horizon is a little bit tilted.

Old buildings and especially old churches and Catedrals like this one, are my absolute favourite pictures. This one is cherry on top. Great job!

I'd like to see more of the ceiling, but the lighting from the stained glass is really beautiful and makes the shot. 7

Good use of lines in this shot, the lighting effects work well in this too.

You only just managed to squeeze this one in then, what was the completion date? :)

This is a good shot with nice colours. I'm not sure why you didn't take it from the centre of the isle though, as that usually makes for a better composition in this sort of shot due to the symmetry.

I imagine this will probably do quite well, it has a very DPC'ish feel about it.

I think this needs to be rotated slightly so that the pillars appear vertical in the shot

Except for the tilt, this is a stunning shot. The rosette lights are beautiful against the columns. Nice texture in the seats and the ceiling.

Really cool how the stained glass colors shin on the walls!

I like how the colors reflect off the window onto the pillars of the church. This is a beautiful pitcure and well deserves the blue.

This photo has a lot of great movement in it- from the pillars going back!

This is a stunning and beautiful image. There is a bit of an illusion going on as it appears to tilt down to the left, but I put it in PS and its straight and true as can be. Stunning:9

Impressively captured interior with a stunning array of colors projected on the pillars and walls through the stained glass windows. 7
