    Re: St Chapelle, Paris

    Thanks, guys. I took this while seated on the floor -- a very hard, cold stone floor, but so far no one I tell this has been sorry for me. The usual response goes something like, "yeah, in Paris, France, and you're whining about a cold floor." Here's another one taken that day.

    Greta shot, eNo, you have centred the ceiling perfectly. Lighting is almost perfect, just a tad blown on the left centre. My eye was first caught by the rich colours of glass and arches.. a beauty!
    On the subject of cold backsides .. a friend gave me a valuable tip once ..
    Most of these high vaulted roofs have a clear area "dead centre" below the middle, perhaps even with a floor pattern centred to relate to the ceiling; It's then possible to align your camera placed on the floor at the spot and get the shot with delayed shutter release and no ice on your bum!
    Here's my example; Brisbane city hall , not so grand as your beautiful cathedral but I was pleased wtih the outcome of the technique.

    Very nice, Roxy. I did try several adjustments to get dead center, and yes, the floor helped. This was my best attempt, after which I gave up because my shoulders and neck were giving out.

    the straight up shot(s) are clever pieces of camera work, but the 2nd shot tells me far more about it as an architectural space. I suppose room for both with as many votes cast each way if there were votes.
