I got to Winchester early on Friday, before the Cathedral had opened. So after a few exterior shots and a coffee I got into the cathedral.
As I was taking this I noticed I had been shooting at 1600 all morning, D'oh!
So this was the first shot I took at 100 ISO, had to retake the Gromley statue. It was an all together disappointing visit, I felt a little uninspired, especially as the building was been cleaned so there was an army of faithful polishers and cleaners around making grand shots awkward.
I tried a couple of approaches with this to get it right, there is some HDR, a straightforward conversion and a really underexposed shot to make this work. Did a bit of tone-mapping too.
I toyed with making this an adult shot, the subject is a little disturbing. I know nothing about the sculpture or the sculptor, but it struck me as a powerful subject.
I hope you enjoy the shot.
