    Nice and crisp, I just wish that the end of the path was better lit. My eye doesn't really focus on the perspective or anything because you have the big bright spot in the middle taking my attention over the leading lines. Top left is also distracting because of that bright spot, and there's a random, seemingly floating sign on the right. But I do like how you tilted the camera enough to make any photo teacher cringe, since it makes it a photo that stands on its own, not something that copies everyone else, and also changes how people perceive the content. It also has really neat light quality, and the exposure is perfect. Glad it's black and white, and I think it's an awesome architectural shot. The lines are cool, and I like the composition. Even with those distracting things I noticed, it's still a very strong photo and hard to compete with.

    Also, thank you for not putting the end point in the middle. You earn a hug for that.

    It's funny, all those things you mentioned are things that were annoying me when trying to take the picture. But all along this .... 400 meter stretch there we signs and lights placed at regular intervals making it impossible to get a picture without them.

    I wasn't the biggest fan of the end either, but the other end of the hallway led out onto a brightly lit street and took away from the image.

    Thanks for your comments, and yeah I tend to take everything off center these days.
