Again, an adequate record. You are suffering from a little flare from the windows and this shows as a slight milkiness and as a lighter patch in the roof. Not too bad, and nothing the burning in tool couldn't deal with, thus increasing the image strength.

You are getting decent sharpness at such low shutter speeds but I think I would be at 400 to give a bit of help.

I like this. The stairs lead the eye through the image in a pleasing way and the partial framing made by the arch is good, too. Paul is right about the flair, and you could probably have used a bit of exposure compensation to reduce that without losing any of that excellent shadow detail - about -2/3 of a stop could have been beneficial. On the othe hand the loss of any detail in the windows themselves is probably inevitable an hardly matters anyway

Compositionally, there's a bit too much wall o nthe left, and nothing supporting the arch on the right... Angling a little to the right would have given better balance, I reckon.

As John says, the archway is cut off on the right side, giving a feeling of being incomplete, so including that side of the arch would have been more satisfying, and would also have improved the composition, showing less of the wall on the left, and framing the staircase and windows inside the arch. It may also have enabled you to get the whole of the bottom step of the stairs in the frame, inviting the viewer to start walking up them. This may have meant moving to the right, and also back a bit.

Dehaze seems to work quite well - its in Lightroom, I must give it a try.
