    Or does it. I certainly lost the plot recently. Also I noticed hot pixels in a new camera.

    Well, if it is too dark say so.

    Hi Steve,

    I like what (I think) you've tried to do here.

    For me, the first would be better without the second lamp in the background; being so similar in tone, it gets confused with the sharp one. Not sure if you have an possibility of shooting from an alternate position while still maintaining the relative positions of lamp and window though, I'm probably asking for the impossible.

    The second image I like better still compositionally, but it is a sad sign of modern times that the security grill spoils the far window.

    Thought provoking images, although perhaps not religious thoughts

    Cheers,

    AAAaaaah, yes if you like you can flash, only 200 miles to the back. I don't carry flash unless it is a portrait. Flash is no good here anyway. Tripods not allowed now though.

    Well thank you very much Dave. I suppose it is possible to get the slightly different angle, I'm not used to this lens and was hoping to go to Chesterfield, with its awkward spire, but it got cancelled.

    So I was stuck here again, and so I took the longish lens because I've got hundreds of photo's of this place with up to 50mm. I think maybe it is harder than I thought it was, only a few things I could see with this lens.

    back again soon.

    And this was a bag of noise; it is in fact quicker to do HDR. I must say if I wasn't so geared to ordinary pics with a monopod I could have had myself a decent pic.

    Another bag of noise in the extreme, so much so you can't read the words. I go out geared up to do one thing, so I didn't go tooled up for HDR. This is actually underexposed so that my shaky hand doesn't affect sharpness too much, but I seem to lose it anyway.

    I noticed that although the great said they only comment on single threads and not on super threads; they don't really comment on anything they don't like. cheers

    it's nice to see again your Church/Abbey/Cathedral pictures!
    I think you're a kind of master about this subject!
    As I said some month ago on Landscapes thread, I'will try to emulate you one day..!!
    I like very much all these pictures,
    if I can add a note
    About the first one I agree with Colin about the second lamp
    in the third the "gate" seems a bit out of focus in my monitor.. isn't it?
    The last one is the one I prefer!
    perhaps you could clone the candle and the green sign board?
    thanks for sharing!
    Nicola

    Cheers Nicola; I think the green board should indeed be removed, the gate is indeed out of focus, I tried several different scenarios with gate in focus, window out of focus. I was trying to be different but even if I dropped 2 stops, the gate would still be out of focus and I couldn't possibly take the photo.

    I wished I could use a tripod but they have new rules. Thanks for your input, it is always useful.
