excellent indoor shot of the crypt! the arches always end themselves to a good composition and you show a great example here! superb use of the light and shadows to further enhance this composition! also a good feeling of depth here and sharpness all the way through!

I like the way you suggest the atmosphere of the crypt. One enters here with some restraint in one's feelings...
