I was hoping you would drop by and give me some feedback, Dustin. Thanks for it. this scene works well when taken with a longer lens and just the windows with the interior black - adding the ceiling doesn't work and probably why I should just skip this view altogether. It's funny because when you walk into this room, the feeling is awesome - a beautiful building and a beautiful scene through the windows. Its all very big and I've never been able to capture that feeling in a picture.

It doesn't surprise me especially today as I also processed a picture that I took of the ceiling, and didn't like the HDR version. I found that the bits of trees seen in the far window was far more distracting than the totally blown-out windows - same principle. I'll post that one in a separate thread.

i just gonna be honest here. this doesn't do much for me, i am having trouble figuring out what i am suppose to be interested in. am i suppose to be interested in the shapes of the window, am i suppose to be looking out the window, hmm the ceiling looks a bit interesting. see what i mean? there is no strong element that says this is a nice picture of ".....x..." and the perspective correction messed up the lights, etc. i would just scrap this one and move on. (sorry to come of blunt)
Right! Technical questions aside, just what is interesting about this shot?

YES...that works for me....

I happen to really like number 3. Seems to look more dramatic to me.
