Have been totally angsting about entries lately - my run of lofty scores has clearly ended, making them feel like a total fluke. I was going to enter this:

' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/95000-99999/96751/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_938717.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/95000-99999/96751/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_938717.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

my friend Mel's gorgeous baby. Seriously thinks she's a lap dog and that people are lumpy mattresses...

But got talked out of it (by my consultant team) in favor of my current entry. Taken at the Los Angeles Cathedral in downtown LA.

This is so disorienting. I love it. Reminds me of the joy of getting lost in a museum.

Very nice. The tones are great and the corner of the room offers an optical illusion of tilt. Awesome photo. My one complaint is that it's not foggy enough. ;D

I guessed this was you, very appropriate to the challenge and nicely pulled off (even without Mel's baby). Spacious, auspicious and totally appealing.

I'm getting an excellent sense of emptiness here, love the texture of the walls, a really good shot.

I would have loved to have seen someone sitting on one of those chairs? But a great shot, lovely interest in your negative space.
