I'm commenting on photos I voted low since people keep wishing they got comments on their low scoring shots. As IR eye-candy (I assume this is IR) always seems to do well, I'm pretty sure this shot will score decently but nontheless...

The colors in this photo do not work. Browns and blues don't have to be lifeless, but these are. There is gothic and nightmarish and there is boring. Unfortunately this photo finds itself in the latter category. Composition-wise, this shot is not from the perspective of the ground up. It is from the side of the building straight over. All those flying buttresses there beg to have you push your nose up against the side of that building and take a shot up the side or front. There is also a lot of interesting detail all over the building that would have been better served by shooting from an angle that shows more of the side. A lot of interesting stuff here sacrificed to blue trees and grass and a monolithic view of a building. Maybe it's what you were going for, I don't know. Overall not a bad shot, not to my liking, and borderline dnmc but good effort.

I don't usually like that reverse type filter, but it really works well on this shot. Perfect title too. 7

Its very beautiful picture but for my taste its bit too much different postprocessing styles. I kind of like the sky and ground but blue trees its too much.

good title. but the pp is perhaps overdone and so detracts from the image

I remember visiting Lancing College in the 1980s. The rafters were full of bats and there was quite a bit of guano on the floor in places. The Saxon church at nearby Sompting is also a nice photo location. Nice work, as usual. Can only be Marbo, surely. Otherwise I will eat my hat.
