With such an Ecclesiastical name, you might expect Cropwell Bishop to have a Cathedral rather than a parish church. However a small church is what it has, dedicated to St Giles.

This is taken from the back of the church, so you are looking at the East Window here.

For such a small church it has a lovely set of 6 bells, with practice night every Monday. I have tried ringing them, but I must admit that I have forgotten all the different peels and so forth, so whilst I can happily ring call changes, I cannot get to grips with the intricacies of Plain Bob minor!

As many churches do, Cropwell struggles to find ringers, so I must admit to tinges of guilt that I didn't try harder with reviving this childhood skill.

The shot is HDR (No I hear you all cry, I don't believe it!) from 6 images processed with Photomatix3 which really is an improvement on the old version and worth trying if you haven't already.

The Cropwell series continues!!

Its a great series and unusual to add vibrance to usually sombre scenes.

Now, there's an idea for a mod Dave, if only I had your skills with Photoshop, I could create an arm reaching out of the grave!

Lovely picture with really good colours and composition and as always a excellent description accompanying the image which I feel is so important. Thanks Jon. Smile

You have just viewed my image of the Omakau HIlls - thank you for your feedback.

I just love this image of the church and graves. I suspected it was HDR when I first saw it....

Cheers

Another fine shot in this series, like the way you've caught the light on the church and the detail in the stonework
