A view of Worcester Cathedral, taken from the north-east.. The cathedral site has been in existance since 680AD, however the oldest surviving parts of the current cathedral are the 10th century crypts underneath ground level. Construction of the current cathedral started in the 12th and 13th centuries... A lot of history here.

It is truly a magnificent building. The old King John of England is also buried within the cathedral. if you're in this part of the UK then Worcester is well worth a visit.

As to the image - a combined HDR of 2 exposures, then the sky was cut and pasted from a 3rd image. Hope you like this one...

beautiful building
nice use of light, sharp and nicely framed.
trees at the left and the right corner gives a window look for the structure.

Hello David,

Well composed shot, good exposed too.
Clear, sharp image with the wonderful colors!

Hi David,

Nice view, thank you for the full description. Please see the WS for your picture.


Hey bb (big bro),
I like the composition and I think the trees work well to frame the subject. The cathedral itself though looks a little flat - perhaps this is an aspect of HDR images, especially daytime images. I've tried this with daytime images and always get a flat result. More practise I think!
Anyway, keep up the good work.

Lovely pic of my favourite place and it shows the buttresses well. How's the statue of Elgar? How did you manage to combine the images? Is that St Andrew's tower behind the RH tree? The workshop is interesting but loses some of the clarity and colour of the sky and I like the framing of the trees on both sides in the original. The WS does bring more colour to the cathedral image but at the expense of the rest of the pic.

Bonjour David,
Belle vue de cette jolie cathédrale, sous un ciel d'artiste et encadrée de juste ce qu'il faut de verdure pour la valoriser!
C'est du trés beau travail!!!
Amicalement Odile

Hi, David,
My compliments for this shot, which is genuinely an architectural one to present the facade, the curved window framing and the play of the light and shadow.
The chosen POV is successfully defined.
Very nice to look at.

Hi David,

Very impressive post processing work you have done! Three exposures in one??? Wow, do I have a lot to learn.

I'm in to the "more contrast" in photofiltre, so I did a workshop for you. It may have brightened up the sky and tree too much, but I like the effect on the cathedral details.

Just a variation for you. Lisa :D

Impressive POV,Grandiose angle made this perfect frame,Highly sharpness effact from this technic reveal all interesting detail of this building.Good work,TFS.

Hello David.
Interesting story and a perfect work on this picture.
Only thing, when you made so much work on it, why not at 800 pixels, with some more bytes ?
Nevertheless, gorgeous.
Regards from Jan

Olá David,
Beautiful take. Very good POV and ligthing. Good framing with yhe first plan trees

Hi David
Nice choice of angle to show the line closer to sky. As those churches were built in the same concept to moved eyes toward the sky to be more closer to GOG.

Hello David,
great shot, superb light and colors,
great shade, pov and sharpness.
You have a great gallery.
Regards Caesar
