Default El Convento, San Juan

The site is the El Convento Hotel in San Juan. The photo was taken in early morning on the outdoor walkway outside our room as the sun began to peek over the roof. The HDR brought out the ceiling detail nicely.

I'm wondering about the composition; is it too centered?

Centered is fine but I'd try a square crop to remove the nearest door on the right which I think unbalances it a bit.

I like the symmetry of the shot. I agree about removing the right piece of door. Beautiful rending you have done.

Very nice rendering and composition. I'm wondering can you tell us how many shots were included in the bracket? The scene outside the door I think has the right amount of brightness.

It's very pleasing and I like it centered. Symmetry is very calm, it suits your subject. The crop suggested by Martin about the door would make a better picture I think, but I don't mind it at all. Very nicely done with the HDR, too.

I'm embarassed to say it was one picture. I later cropped it and I agree it came out more balanced!
