I really like this shot a lot! I didn't expect it to come out quite this good. In fact, whe I looked at it, it didn't even look like the boring light that is outside my room. The first thought when I saw it was "Wow, this looks like I am down in the bottom of a tower with a window at the top with the sun shining through. Made it a little more dynamic with some post processing in PhotoShop CS.

When I first saw the thumbnail for this I thought I was looking down a tunnel and boy was I wrong. The uneven lighting, I feel, is the most interesting part of this composition and how it plays with the textures of the ceiling.

Good seeing. Very nice textures and lighting. The white line in your boders competes a bit with the image. Overall - still a very effective image that should score well.

The brightness to the lower left of the light brings the focus away from the middle of the photo.

I wish the lights on the right side were turned on.

I really love how the left side came out.

great texture in the ceiling (I think that's what we're looking at). If the light had been a little more symmetrical, the eye would be drawn even more to the center.
