Criticism welcome -- tried for an original composition of a fairly unoriginal subject

really pretty, if only those arches could speak of what they have seen...

I love the asymetry you created :) (Smile)

The lighting of the scene isn't that good. Nothing you could change ;) (Wink)

Such cumbersome arches... you'd think of an intricate pattern like this to be made up of delicate material... not stone! You have a magnificent eye.

600 dev's eh? I don't envy you, lol, but I'm glad you took the time to comment on one of mine. I've been updating my devs with better scans. The lighting on "Birds Outside" was caused by the light from the window being the only light source.

I'm going to read that book you mentioned;) (Wink)

man, this is another great image, i love the detail and shapness, looks like your useing narrow apertures, eh?! f22? a sepia tone, would be cool, but then again thats me, i sepia tone everthing, i think the comperstion is very good, only thing, is if someone, was standing where that door in the near background, walking by, or looking at the camera, it would of made it abit more intresting, but then again, thats me, dont wonna sound to harsh?
still it's very good

The lighting is natural, on quite a grey day. The archway faces outside, if that helps at all. I'm intruiged by your comment, I think I can see what you mean at top left. Kind of a bit too full-on.

very nice, is the lighting natural or flash?

in either case I feel that it is slightly stronger than it should be, if flash i suggest bouncing the flash next time so that it lights but not as strong in one area.

the only advantage i see is it creates very nice shadows in the ceiling.
