These colors and lines blow me away - this is worth framing - give a copy to the Court house to hang there also! Congrats on 4th place.

I like how the dome draws the eye up, but I'm not wild about the PPing.

Beautiful interior with some amazing colors,shapes and patterns. Lovely use of lighting and nice sharp detail. Fantastic angle from which the shot was taken. 9

Very interesting, lovely colours, sharp, but perhaps if the cupola was on the top 1/3 of the frame it would be more compelling and draw the viewer into the photo
