Ouch 17fps?  Yikes.

I can say that your geometry looks nice, but a bit repetetive (add some locked doors that follow the same geometric patterns or something on the side), and your textures are quite meh, it's probably just the lighting though.  Add some atmosphere with the lighting a bit more, add dark/flickering broken lights down the path in some areas.  Makes it seem less perfect.

17 fps is bad? Usually thats a high number on my computer. Though I play with everything on very high.

Well, my old Geforce MX440 got at least 30 with everything on High.. and it looked bland.


But, back on topic shall we?

Ooh.. spooky.  I like the wires you placed.  But it does seem a little too dark in the first picture.

So, what's the background story on this map?  That might help in what you want to focus on.

Looks pretty good, but you should add a line of lights running on the ceiling, but dim ones.

You know, for a first map, this looks pretty awesome.  I don't know much about mapping really, and it looks far from playable, but I get the impression that this is more of a showcase of your abilities so far.  With that in mind this looks highly encouraging, keep going  :).
