A view of the cloisters in Worcester Cathedral, very difficult lighting as it's so dark inside - but with the sun streaming through the narrow windows. A combination of 2 shots, and sepia toned.

Edited to say Sigma 10-20mm lens at 10mm, the 2 shots of the same POV and combined HDR style.

Wow! I just love the effect here -- I really thought for a moment that it was a super wide-angle - great idea!
Very well-handled light here and the composition is fascinating

Hi David,

Really neat pov you have chosen. I like all of the repetitive curves throughout the cloisters. I would have probably boosted the contrast (It's a "me" thing...what can I say? LOL). I think the higher contrast just defines all of the intricate details in the buildings. I think I overdo it sometimes, and many may not agree...just a personal thing.

I really like the photo though. Nice sepia effect with the color. It compliments the style of the cathedral very nicely.

thanks for sharing this beaut! Lisa

Hey, that's a shot you can be happy with. Great POV and the lighting is good. I like the symmetry.


Exceptional image David. The use of HDR style has really come up trumps.

But your lens has really done you pride and your eye for detail, great composition and exposure.

A real cracker.


Wonderful graphical effect! Unusual perspective!Perfect angle!

HI David
About the only thing one can say about this shot is unbelievably well done, and the sepia perfect for a monatery.

Hi David
Very well done. It was not until I read your note that I realised it is in fact two images combined together. I am slightly disturbed by the verticles not being quite verticle. However this is a stunning image. I congratulate you. TFS.

Hi David..this is a great composition..wonderful point of view..great details.


Hello David
What a stunning popint of view! Very good idea to have combined those two images.Great PP work

Hi David,

Exellent shot, I like the pov here, great colours and details, it look like wide angle, but of cos after reading your notes.. that's a very clever idea. :D

Have a nice day,

Hi David,

I've seen this image so many times from different photo sites but yours is different. The depth of field and the amazing point of view are very artistically taken. Sepia is suit for this kind of picture.


Well composed, artistic and effective creation here David.
The b/w and sepia tone was a great choice.
Well done.

Hello David
I can't see the join!
Black and white is the only way to apreciate this kind of detail.
Regards, Les

I love the POV that you've used and the level of detail that you've brought through. For me the sepia tone lacks a little oomph and I'd have preferred the stronger contrast of a pure b&w effect, but that's just a personal thing.
Thanks for sharing

Hi David. Now this is good use of the HDR method in so far as I did not know it was HDR until I read your Photographers notes. The subject is further enhanced with sepia tones. good work! Thanks for sharing.

Regards Phil.
