Shot inside the Cathedral of Learning at the University of Pittsburgh. I softened the reflection of the lights on the floor a bit, and took out some annoying green shading that was on the wall on the left. I also upped the highlights a bit to brighten up the overall image. This area is really a pretty dark, spooky, Gothic sort of place. It looks like somewhere Batman would hang out.

Congrats on your top 5 finish Alan.
This shot is amazing in the amount of detail present for a shot 150K or under. Nicely done!

Alan: congratulations on your 5th placing. This image is very special because its spacial content gives me the feeling that i am a bird soaring and looking down. All I can say, as jaw slowly drops, is unbelievable!

This is one of my favorites in this challenge. Quite an expansive interior shot with great exposure and perfect detail. Like the angle you chose and your POV as it appears you were up a bit. I also like the inclusion of the student which is very effective in showing scale. Excellent work and good luck!

This photo gives a great sense of scale and depth. Excellent work. Some blown out highlights but the immense nature of the photo overpowers that. One of my favorites. :o)

I think this shot might benifit from a bit more symmetry in the composition. I like the sense of scale. Very cool studyhall. :)

What would you study here; celestial mechanics? It is impressive architecture, that's for sure, and your photograph is a good one. But the tables & chairs do seem to trivialise this massive hall a bit. 6.

Not keen on the crop at the top, maybe less foreground and full height?
