i would go ahead and fix your converging verticals, they are pretty dramatic and actually distract me a little bit. also, your window is leaning to the left a few degrees.

that said. i really enjoyed the detail you managed to get in shot #3. and enjoyed not only the detail, but the sense of expansiveness conveyed in #4,5.

Default Oh - wow!

Love # 1 - 3 - 4 and 5. Each for their special mood.

- 1 Perspective = powerful
- 3 Lighting = phenomenal and tonal values are superb
- 4 Great feeling of openess and friendly light
- 5 Great hight cought very well. Conveying a feeling of grandeur (is there such a word as grandeur? If not, there should be...)
- I like the decapitated alter in # 6 if it would have the top on.

Very good job, vvcarpio!

There is such a word as grandeur. Very similar to grandiose.
