Exposure: ISO:400 f/5 1/64 40 mm
- The maker of this image has made a good attempt to capture the glory and grandeur of Versailles. Exposure is good. The chandelier at the top center of the frame is the most important element in the frame and is in good focus, but the rest of the hall is somewhat out of focus.
- it feels like I'm seeing only half of the photo. Consider photographing the entire room or concentrating on the foreground chandelier and the ceiling paintings
- Good try on difficult shot. Some loss of DOF. Instead of trying for whole room, try for more detail in tighter shot
- Image effectively shows the excesses of royal life at this time in French history. Composition would be more effective if full height of room was included & greater depth of field was used. Consider increasing exposure on the dark blue wall arch at the back of the room. You captured lovely reflections & colors in the crystal chandeliers.
