Under the Cathedral of Amalfi, there is the crypt of St. Andrew.

I like it, but maybe would have cropped tighter at bottom and shown more at the top

Wonderful capture except for the lighting on the right side..a bit harsh. Also looks a touch flat, doesn't pop! a touch more saturation. Overall a great image.

Impressive view, no noise is nice. Photo could be aligned more evenly.

nice picture, needs a little bit more contrast

The place is awesome but lost protagonism by the lack of contrast, I believe that accentuate the shadows, would give the volume is missing.
