This photo should allow an appreciation of the spectacular space, and the detail of the environment.

Pews show the scale at ground level, and the projection allows the eye to see the full height on both sides of the nave, and the whole roof. The metal pipes of the organ accidentally show that 'airbrushed chrome' effect. Far from being just cold architecture, there are signs that this space is used and loved.

The early morning sun is kind and warm, allowing the inner space to be lit by secondary reflections, without blasting the scene with high contrast. The white balance is slightly warmer than neutral (you can see this from the slight blue caste to the natural light in the window), which helps keep the stone (which would be a warm off-grey in neutral colours) in sympathy with the wood. There is very little artificial light in this picture, but I can comment that the Abbey is very sympathetically lit, and shows the architecture off very well.

Tech Info: Stitch of four photos (110 FOV), hand-held with IS/VR on approx 1/3s exposure. Darker areas have been lightened for on-screen display. Slight over-exposure in the highlights, but this is a small sacrifice to achieve the shadow detail. The original is good for a 30MP image, pixel-perfect in the lower half.
