|Hello from the Critique club
An interesting image that meets the challenge.
Great use of fisheye lens to create an allegorical illusion as you have. I like your mono processing, perfect for the subject it enhances it very effectively. The vault you have used is also perfect for the scene with its cracks and ageing textures it adds a realistic impression to the concept you are trying to convey. I see you were disappointed with the light, a photographers recurring difficulty, but given the nature of the subject I would say this has worked well for you especially the dramatic sky. Just a couple of minor criticisms, that white knob stands out like a sore thumb, it just keeps drawing your eyes to it, I think it would benefit from some dodging to subdue it a little. The other thing is the very tight crop, its just too tight. I can understand your dilemma, to get the most out of your lens you needed to be in close to exaggerate the distortions but I just wish we could see all of it complete.
Great subject, great image, well done Ronnie.
