  1. Nice job overall. Would love to see a crop off the top (maybe to just below the light on the top left?) Thinking this might help reduce the feeling of distortion from the wide angle. And the wall on the right: I’m never quite sure what to do with those slices of wall at the edges of the frame. I don’t mind the inclusion of the wall here, but it’s a little bright so my eye kind of gets stuck on it. The windows seem a touch dark to me, and there’s some evidence of masking around the window frames. Yeah, maybe a little more ambient overall? There’s a gorgeous hint of sunlight on that bit of wall at the right, beneath the stairs…makes me wonder if there was more potential for letting the window light wash over the scene just a bit more?

  2. This is close to being a terrific image. Composition wise I wish the photographer would have taken a step to the left and avoided the wall on the right.

  3. I like the composition, but a couple things feel a little off to me that are sort of reducing the impact for me. This is stylistic preference, so take it with a grain of salt. The flash feels a bit heavy handed to me. It's VERY well done, but this space seems to be a prime candidate for natural light. With all those windows, I'd expect to see lots of light FROM them. I can see the spot of light on the left, but the view outside is a couple stops underexposed. The far windows are also darker than I prefer (again, the light here was probably amazing!), but even so, it looks like the highlights were brought down too far, as the view looks a little dull and lacking contrast. Brightening the windows by a stop or two would change everything here. Also, with all that light, no need for the lights to be on. I suspect flash was used to counter the color casts from the light fixtures. When the architecture is begging for it, you really need to re-assess your typical routine and roll with it. I want to love this photo, but I feel the opportunity has been overlooked. But I'll say again, the technique and execution are great. This is a professional, polished photo, and I can tell the photographer knows how to work her or his equipment. I have no doubt your client was happy.
