Much better. Having stood in that spot, I don't think you could have composed it any better. I assume you tried a vertical format while you were there.

The colors are exactly as they really are, but have you tried boosting the saturation a tad?

Personally...
Not seeing where that bell is hanging from bothers me
Also, the open area to the far right doesn't look right. Would be better to crop by the post and isolate the hall.

Thanks Jon, much better is good, but I have a feeling I'll be back. The light wasn't what I wanted, it was still diffused through the marine layer and the sun was already pretty high. I want harder shadows from the columns and very early. Color did come out good and I will try some saturation.

Now that you mention the floating bell... concur!
I'll try the crop, but that puts me in to a square format and I haven't really warmed up to that yet. Thanks.

I have to give you credit for trying hard to nail this scene.
I would have approached it differently. The lighting would have better going across the floor in patterns (between the pillars on the right and/or highlighting the rough textures on the walls and pillars.
I agree with the cropping comments above and portrait.
My take would be:

Nah, it would be a shame to crop.
If you could somehow include the bell's origin (reshoot I know), or clone it out completely.
I certainly wouldn't crop down to square, you would lose so much of the shot.


EDIT: Even that crop by Spike44 is better. It isolates the hall and leaves what's to the right to the imagination I feel!!!

I know I have a few frames that have the beam the bell is suspended from, and some other angles as well. Spike44's crop is indeed an improvement!
And I know I'll reshoot this if we ever have a clear morning, the fog has been lingering till well after 10:00 lately.

What would a shot angled towards the pillars look like?

That was the original orientation and it just seemed lacking IMHO.
