[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is one of two stained glass windows over the main doors of the mansion I posted yesterday (Hampton Mansion). I took several shots of the ornate glass from the inside and outside, and some with flash, but I liked the effect with this the best. This was without flash to capture the natural light through the glass. The upper portion of the blue shield suffered a bit from OE and I tried to correct by lowering brightness and using dodge/burn.

Thanks for viewing.

Hello Werner,

impressive stained glass. I like the way you have composed this image - bright central part and darkness all around it - because it really draws all the attention on the glass.

Great composition and framing, excellent light managment, good colours, great presentation.

Have a nice day,

Hello Werner,
Detail and sharpens, one has the impression the fact that one before the windows stands and directly can touch it. Very good work, congratulates.

Hi Werner..nice details and light...well done.


This is a very good exercise in trying to shoot ambient light from the darkness. You managed it well, very good choice of Fstop IMO. I love stained glass! Nice work Werner!
