Gorgeous photos Salty, very impressive work with that lens.

Being a cabinetmaker i can't help but think about how to go about building something like that when I see it, being afraid of heights cures me of this particular problem, I get woozy just thinking about what those guys did:-).

Very cool. If you have ceilings like that to look at, who wouldn't be fascinated! Nice job photographing them.

Nice Job Salty..

Great job Salty!!

I really like them all.. You did a great job at getting the depth of the nooks and cranny's..

I do lean more toward the color ones though.. I think the black and white tend to make them look alittle flatter, while the colors gives them more depth.. IMO..

Thanks for sharin.. Have a great day! Kim

Hey, my friend, very nice piece of work with all four shots. I particularly like the composition of #2, but as Kim says the color shots have a bit more depth for some reason. Anyway - great job.

Nice shots Salty - I love my DA 12-24 . Very nice framing and PP #2 is my favorite almost looks like a maze. Well done.
