Jerry, reminds me slightly of an Escher drawing, don't know whether it is what it depicts or that you've put together a montage. In any case, I can't say that it does anything but make me a bit uncomfortable. In fact the more I look at it the more impossible it seems! Whatever technical merit it may have is overwhelmed by this - in my opinion.
Perhaps a clue about what you are trying to express with the photo might help.
Bob.

OK! Just visited your site. It is a montage, well executed, but still doesn't grab me.

Thanks for looking at it, Bob. My goal was to celebrate the Hotel's refurbished facade, and show off some of its beautiful detail. Guess if I had to say that, I failed in my task...

I don't think you failed at all. Theater industry is actually crazy about that kind of particular look, unfortunately I am not a Photoshop wizard.

According to what I have seen, your image would top their list for sure.

I wouldn't put it on wall, that is for sure, but I wouldn't say it doesn't work either. I think it's awkward and disturbing, and I don't feel comfortable watching it, as if the picture and my brain couln't harmonize. If that is what you intended to get or express... the photo works very well indeed
