Arches Upon Arches Upon Arches       ©2016 RobertLavker
Panasonic DMC-GX7       5th place, 125 points
1/4s, f7.1, ISO 125, 20mm, Aperture Priority, Pattern, no flash
 
Post-Processing: levels; decreased shadows, decreased highlights, increased contrast; unsharp mask       Extra Info: I deliberately did not try to straighten the right and left arches and walls, as I feel that the image has an overall "arched" feel to it.

    Thanks for the interest in this architecture. It is part of the Chicago Cultural Center. I will have more on this in the Outtakes forum.

    What a beautiful, intricately carved room. Straightening the perspective would have been next to impossible without a lot of room for cropping, so I think you did the right thing in leaving it as is.

    Great scene. Strange there is no floor reflection from the right window. GL.

    Nice view, but I would have made perspective correction. Anyway, in my favorites.

    It has a "look" which I am not altogether sold on. But the lighting is excellent and the distortion within limits of what I can tolerate. My no. 6. Beautiful interior. Where is this?

    Great subject. Very beautiful. Excellent processing. I do take some exception to the distortion as being an improvement over straight verticals, but I respect your choice.

    Glad you didn't try to straighten the sides. Nice image, well rendered and fitting the challenge perfectly.

    I'm very jealous that you had access to such a beautiful place for this challenge, LOL. Very nicely shot, I agree with your choice of retaining the lens distortion. I think it gives a feeling of grandness. My top pick. I hope you tell us where this is after the voting.

    No one builds architecture like this anymore, it's a great shame those days have gone. In my top picks.
