I like the angle of the shot. The color is beautiful. Great job.   Posted: 08/08/2019 12:43:05

I like the idea of a vertical composition but would crop off the top light/skylight. Then my eye focuses on the columns. I would also try monochrome.   Posted: 08/18/2019 09:31:29

I agree with Kathy. Mono would show the textures , tones and shapes better   Posted: 08/18/2019 18:11:58

Steve, I agree with Kathy's crop and recommend black & white, which would enhance the shadows, making the subject more dramatic..Good subject, Steve!   Posted: 08/19/2019 12:43:29

Hi Steve:

Nice details of the door and pillars. I actually love the colors. To me, the only improvement I would make would be to crop the right to balance/match the space (from pillars to the edge of photo) to the left.   Posted: 08/19/2019 20:07:01
