Here's a picture of my visit to the Vatican. This was taken @ 10mm on a Tamron 10-24mm at high ISO and at a strange angle, so I'm having trouble deciding whether I like it or not. I think there might be too much going on. Any thoughts?

I included the original version which I had to heavily edit to even out the lighting because of the sun coming through the windows. Did I over-do it?

I dont think the edit was overdone, great improvement from the original. great capture all around, by the way, how did you take these? Last time I was at the vatican they wouldnt let me take any photos, with or without flash.

Photography used to be forbidden in the Sistine Chapel. I guess it's not enforced too heavily. I'd like to go some day. some day....

Thanks for the feedback!

I was surprised that they were letting everyone take as many pictures as they wanted to. Even in the Sistine Chapel, where there were signs everywhere saying photography was not allowed, almost every person had a camera in their hands. I guess it's tough to enforce with that many people around (although if they really wanted to, they could make you check it in at the front because they make you go through x-ray scanners and metal detectors).

I cant tell you how many times I have seen these photos from a 'center-of-the-room-straight-up' pov. Although awesome, just soooo done.

I cant tell you how refreshing it is to see your spin on this. Really cool angle and comp. I like your PP. And yeah there *is* a lot going on, but look at it - THERE IS A LOT GOING ON where you were!

I think you did very well.

Thanks! My goal was to try a unique angle and I wasn't sure if it worked. I'm glad you guys like it...
