A gothic rendering of a gothic place. Nice.

I quite like Notre Dame; I have a similar shot from the other end looking back towards the organ and the rose window on the front of the cathedral.

Unfortunately, your image is a little asymmetrical in it's composition. While that is not necessarily a bad thing, in this case, you're just asymmetrical enough to be noticeable, but not enough to be clearly deliberate. It kind of looks sloppy instead of a concious artistic choice.

Also, your digital post-processing looks a little overdone. I know how wide the dynamic range is for this scene ... it is challenging. You've done well not to blow out the stained glass windows, but I think you've gone overboard on lightening the remainder of the scene, which has introduced a fair amount of noise and artifacts into the image.

Lacking a bit in focus, and its also overxposed in areas.

This image has potential however I feel the processing has marred it somewhat. Saturation was pushed too much and it looks oversharpened.

Too overdone.
