The Cathedral of Saint Peter (German: Trierer Dom) is a church in Trier, Rhineland-Palatinate, Germany. It is the oldest cathedral in the country. The edifice is notable for its extremely long life span under multiple different eras each contributing some elements to its design, including the center of the main chapel being made of Roman brick laid under the direction of Saint Helen, resulting in a cathedral added on to gradually rather than rebuilt in different eras. Its dimensions, 112.5 by 41 m, make it the largest church structure in Trier. Since 1986 it has been on the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites.

I like this - the underlying balance is appealing, but for me, the little slice of asymmetric sunlight in the left corner adds nicely. As I now know from my own experience, these shots aren't always easy to get done properly.
The trick is not to make lemonade when life hands you lemons. The trick is to find the person life has handed vodka to and then have a party.
Thanks Derek, the interior was actually quite dark and when I first looked at the image I was not too happy with it since I could have opened the f stop a bit more and then would have had a better start. A bit of post processing magic and it looked a bit better. This is why traveling with a tour not designed for photography can be a challenge sometime as you linger and wait for people to move away but you can only wait so long before you have to move on, so you don't always get the chance to get the exact image you wanted.
