I love this architecture, Steve,with the background steps, the several arches, and your inclusion of the cross on the ceiling. There's a strong light penetrating the floor on the right, which I mention because you say that you welcome observations. Maybe the clone tool would work there? Otherwise, it's a very attractive image.

Thanks Pamela for the detailed comment. Of course - always welcome any opinions and observations. I know exactly what you mean about the bright light. I was also conscious of the slight imbalance on the RHS with the edge of the pillar i the foreground.

In the end I decided to leave the highlight, partly because i lack the skill to deal with it well - I'm not sure if I've lost the detail in the exposure. I can absolutely see it could be distracting.

Thanks again!

A competent presentation of a historical place. The arches lead to the stair but it merges into the back ground I might have tried to lighten it too make it more prominent. I probably also would have cloned out the strong highlight on the floor. Still a great picture.
