I had the same thought - that they looked more like a painting. They are very interesting, and totally different than what I usually look for - thanks for opening my eye up to another point of view, you've given me something to think about.

Very nice lines and angles in these. The muted light helps the dark portins to really stand out and emphasize the lines even more!

Ruth, I really like the gold color of the rooms to accent the blues. Very nice.

Excellent composition. The lack of any kind of distortion (converging lines) on the second imageis amazing. Were you shooting from street level?
