This is stunning. I like the starke differnecs between the two buildings; they seem to compliment each other. Then you have all those straight lines against the curves of the columns and swags. This is a magnificent image! You have a great eye to have caught this.

Great composition. I just wish that the photo was cut from the top a bit more, to the top of the second column and get more of the suffocating feeling. 9
