    Oh Steve,

    Please tell me you're not trying to read a monk's shopping list through a piece of wobbly glass that is several hundred years old?

    I doubt you'll get that readable.

    Cheers,

    Yes it is probably expecting a bit much Dave and anyway I just thought it is 200% or 9000+ pixels or 900% bigger than this image. Would have been nice to be able to though.

    You need the software used in crime shows where they can recognize a a license plate number from outer space.

    I was just curious John, it looks like new glass with a shopping list. The actual photo I wanted I couldn't get because it was between the pillars and even with highest iso I needed a tripod, and didn't like to place one on an eight hundred year old stone carving.

    The window is on the left near the statue between the pillars.

    cheers Ashwin It is because I like dark in fact I couldn't get any films processed after leaving school where I did my own, because the machines discarded them as seriously underexposed.

    The window is blue and the only light source apart from the dark cathedral behind, but I like the red tint. cheers

    Forgot to add the smiley face to my comment Steve. The remark was aimed more at the supposed available technology.

    Cheers John. Just for an experiment I thought I would take the first non blown frame and try to recreate the actual darkness or level of light. Well all of them were blown but this at 1/15 200 iso f8 temp 4200 fill 100 recovery 50 is how I remember the lighting and the window is blue as are all of them but maybe not as much as I've got some.

    I didn't notice the light top left, but it wasn't much. Trying to simulate the atmosphere is very difficult, I don't want so much detail as atmosphere but preferably both.
