Great sharpness and depth of view, you chose a good angle to take your photo... I especially like how the light passes through the stained-glass windows, and colored reflections on the paved ground. Congratulations !
I wish you a happy new year !

Wonderful use of the available light, Brian, with rich colors and a great low POV. Impressive to keep this much detail without allowing the shot to be washed out in the windows - really lovely work.

I like the well balanced exposition here which was not easy due to the deep shades. The architectural details of the cloister are very impressive. You captured it from a nice angle. Very nicely enhanced details.

Good Morning Brian,
Fine composition and repeating features draw the eye rapidly to the strongly positioned doorway.
I love the the contrasts of light and shadow as they manifest themselves on the floor.
Have a lovely Sunday,
