This and all your images are extraordinary, a marvellous record before restoration work (I assume) is completed. It looks as if some is being undertaken. Have you used Lucis Art in the processing? It may explain the consistent "look and feel" in the images. You obviously enjoy fine detail as none is lost in shadow. This takes a little away from the mood but I expect you can't have it all. If I was doing this I'd try to put people in the images to contrast with decay and brittle elegance. I might also experiment with monochrome (or at least a little desaturation). You have the material here for a fine book.

More resolution!!!

imo: the story here is landscape 16:9, the amazingly ornate facades married to the decrepit floor... 
I want to walk into the hallway, feel the sorrow of the event, the neglect, the absence, the memory the glorious moments once held...

The beautiful skylight in the foreground, imo, adds too much contrast to the decay...  As if, the sorrow is married to hope which is then diffused by the walkway in the foreground...
Now, if the window were broken and had a pile of snow on the floor, it would be a different story...

But, although I LOVE THIS IMAGE, to me, the skylight is "Hope Unresolved", a useless hope of redemption that distracts from the ghosts...
If however, the story is "The Useless Hope of redemption" that could be tremendously disturbing, and counterpointed still in a 16:9 showcasing the skylight in the aft-ground... Counterposed with the skylight in the foreground putting up the good fight against decay...

All in all, well, you asked for honest critique, that's mine, plus, I think you're brilliant, always.

I don't have much resolution to work with, but, if you like I'll post an interpretation of the work to try and explain...
Of course it will be inferior to yours (not enough resolution to work with in emphasis), but could be artistically stimulating...

...as payment for how much I always enjoy your work.

The picture itself is wonderfully lit and captured - there's a sense of infinity and therefore timelessness to such a rustic scene - it echoes with its forgotten elegance.

Someone abandoned THAT?  It should be a museum/in a museum

The blue on the glass makes it look like it's underwater. Very supernatural seeming
