    It must have been rather sad to shoot there! Congrats on your high finish and noteworthy result.

    This was in my top three. Makes me so sad, it must have been a glorious place once.

    Great find - beautifully presented. I'm surprised the vandals have not done more damage.

    This photo would be ideal for starting a philosophical discussion. Very thought provoking and well photographed.

    What a shame to see something so beautiful defiled in this manner. Nice composition. Great job capturing some of the magnificence along with the debris.

    Great find, very interesting old church! Don't like the colours though.

    If I'm not mistaken, you entered a photo of this same building in the Open category. I must say, I find this one more appealing. I really like the angle and the subject and I find the lighting better too. Nice shot!

    really interesting composition - leading lines, bursts of strong colour form the glass.

amazing that a derelict building like that has not been further damaged.

such a waste of a lovely interior.

must have been an interesting shoot - and selection of entries - as I imagine this was full of potential. I'm hoping for more in outtakes

    Great lines and composition. Like this one even more than the other.

    Impressively on theme. Beautiful colors. What happened to the community? Unbelievable that such a nice synagogue is left alone...

    Good colours and well composed. I like how the rows of pews draw you into the picture. Left-side windows a little over-exposed.

    Love the composition of this shot - which in my opinion is much more interesting than your other entry of this Synagogue in the Open category. I presume the "high key", overly-bright impression is what you intended, but I'm really curious how bringing out the darker overtones and gloominess of the cavernous interior in a more "low key" image might look. Still, this ranks high in my favorites.
