A rather remarkable example of architectural photography which captures the stunning beauty of this once magnificent Abbey, simply breathtaking, and a credit to your vision and photographic ability.

I like the eye-catching symmetry and texture in this. Good luck with your entry!

I like the detail Brian,lovely bit of architecture.
The light from the windows looks a bit on the grey side,probably the result from using HDR...& the fg structure is very dominant in the frame right in the middle.Perhaps a couple of steps to your left would have still included it & given a better perspective of the scene.
Nice light dropping in pools on the floor.
All will depend on the judge on the night Wink

Others have commented on the symmetry, but it is not quite symmetrical which is what I am guessing you were to achieve: that would be my only slight criticism of this otherwise very well captured image where lighting was not necessarily in your favour.

I tend to agree with Chase about the window light, but that could possibly solved with a bit of dodging, otherwise a great photo and composition is excellent, and with the window corrections would be a worthy entry into the competition

Slip the judge a tenner and you will be ok. a little niggle...that window light in the background just left of the central column.

Fine image which should do well. Tend to agree about 'grey' window light, & a judge may have a problem with the central column dividing the image almost 50/50. A slight crop, or a viewpoint from further left to show more of LHS with the cross a focal point might help, but an excellent detailed image - good luck with club & comp.

I like the composition and the 'almost' symmetry with the cross and window at the left back (but I'm probably in the minority). I would definitely enter it into the competition.

Good feedback from Janet here Brian, you end up just looking at the imposing pillar, might be worth darkening down a bit too and light the light pools from the windows come out more.

Its a nice scene Brian.

Ive loaded a couple of mods based on what Janet and Richard have mentioned. While doing this, theres a couple of small things you may want to address. In the windows, - especially the one at the far end, there are dark areas indicative of perhaps dodging work. I would check those before presenting for a judgement. Ive removed them in the mods.
