Oh yes! I like!

The composition is excellent.
The tonalities especially in different regions of the image to either enhance detail or hide it - fabulous.
This image is telling stories on lots of different levels - enigmatic and intriguing - in fact because one is not sure what the "full story" is the interest value demands second and third looks and much pondering.

You gave me much pleasure viewing your creation.

Thoughts?

 I like it. There are some slightly odd-looking lines around the girls' legs, but I imagine they're compression artefacts.

I think Stamper may have pulled the Clarity slider a bit too far to the right, but in a print the lines probably would disappear.

Although the exterior has a story unto itself (looks a bit like a face with a winking eye), it's the interior that really speaks. I really like the way the light brushes the various edges and subtly disappears into the ceiling beams. And the silhouettes of course! Well seen and well captured.

Thanks for the feedback. Regarding the lines it may be the sharpening I did. I took a series of images and I set a shutter speed of 1/250th and auto iso. The light was low so some of the images showed slight motion blur. This image probably suffered the least from the motion blur. The scene is the dark cloisters in Glasgow University. A well known place for photography with quite a few opportunities for photography.

Any more symmetry and I`d have thought you`d mirrored it.   :)  But then the two women would be walking into each other.  Very nice.

Very nice indeed - I especially like the little old dear in the background with the scarf on her head, yes this is a picture to enjoy looking into and around.

Very, very nice catch Stamper. Love the geometry. Bravo!
