    Congratulations Steve. Very deserved win!
...I can not believe that you and Rafael used the same motifs as in the Architecture challenge! What a great coincidence.

    Congratulations on a a great shot with loads of atmosphere. I keep expecting to see the Canterville ghost come through a wall at any moment

    A high contrast scene very nicely captured, the composition and that great reflection makes for a very strong image for the challenge. TT for me and, despite the great competence, I guess this will finish high. Well done!! :-)
(Maybe is Steve behind the camera? I think I remember some nice pics from you at this place... :-)

    Exceptional use of light, shadow and contrast. Nicely composed as well. This is my top pick. Good luck.

    I am only missing my favourite ghosts coming thought the brickwork. Beautiful composition. Now I have to ask - why wold anyone come down here ? You must know all the good places in town LOL

    This is a tremendous shot - The reflection is so clear, the detail is wonderful, and the texture of the stones is remarkable given the gloomy atmosphere.

    This is really good. I love the reflection in the water, and the fact that there is so much detail in the shadows. Very well done.

    This certainly must contend for the winning entry. It is so good on so many levels it is difficult to find fault with the presentation or any possible suggestion to improve. My only possible criticism is my sense that the doorway is too centered both vertically and horizontally and I think it would have helped to have marginally more frame to the bottom and the left or to the top and left but that might make matters worse. My top pick for now but I think I am unlikely to change my vote.
