      I am not a big fan of HDR. But I really think that it worked for you here. I love the colors and texture. I just sugested a crop that might frame things a bit better in my opinion. The framing right now cuts the sides at odd places in the arches.

      The image has a really beautiful rhythm. It seems to be a well chosen angle. I agree with Sintex that a tighter crop could be an improvement, although it works pretty well as it is. The details are great. I know it's HDR that gives the image it's slightly surreal look, but the colors are a bit oversaturated for my taste, especially the aggressive green that takes over the interest of architecture. I would just slighty decrease the yellow in greens. Score 11/13 (from the Judgment Day group)

      still a great subject, but the angle removes some of contrast of the green in the background....loved that in the other photo

      I love your arcade pictures. No doubt about it. The colours and textures are great, the DOF is brilliant.

      I like the hdr effect on the grass but i don't think the frame is very good. Maybe a different perspective of this subject and the hdr treatment would give a better result, but this one is not so special, i think.

      The Chancel with the High Altar in the middle. On the left spaces for the various small chapels.
