The facade of the Queen Victoria Building in Sydney is nice, but the inside is really beautiful with all its details, stained-glass windows and Byzantine arches.
During the 90-ies of the 19th century Sydney's largest market was held in this building. Nearly 100 years later the building which occupies an entire block in Sydney, was renovated and now hosts some of Sydney's most stylish shops. According to fashionguru Pierre Cardin is the most beautiful shopping centre in the world .
What I like about this photo is the large clockwork hanging on the ceiling (there are two of these large clocks in the building), all the details and the fact your able to see both basement and the "open" roof allowing the daylight to come into the building all the way to the basement.
I sharpened the photo a little after resizing it.

This is a very nice picture with a perfect POV and extremely sharp. Your note is very good too. Well done.

A good overall view of this beautiful building. I like the style of this place, visitors having no hurry and that clock as a centerpiece. Good exposure.

A very good view of this building. It's quite striking both inside & outside as you've explained in the notes. The light balance is good here, the exposure levels are good.

Great architecture shown off here in your beautifully sharp image. The wide angle has worked very well. Congratulations!

Very nice and sharp composition and well exposed with all those lights. I think this is one of the most beautiful buildings in Sydney. Good depth of field too.

Très belle composition symétrique d'un bien joli immeuble. La netteté de l'image est impressionnante et l'exposition parfaite. Bravo!

Interesting interior and good picture quality. Not too yellow, despite the artificial light from lamps.
