Shot from almost on the floor using my trusty Gorillapod, this is another image from my recent trip to see Antony Gormley's 'Sound II' at Winchester Cathedral's crypt. Thanks for all the great feedback and attention the previous version got...

Wonderful reflections Dave and so well positioned for the light, did you add the shaft from the window? Either way it's a fab image!

It's one heck of a photogenic location and once again you've done it full justice here Dave. The low viewpoint adds drama and the reflection balances the shot out very nicely.

You can't kid a kidder though and I'm assuming you've added the light beam digitally. I can see why you've done it as it does highlight the figure beautifully but it does'nt quite "look right" to me. That's more of a technical niggle though as the overall effect is good and it's a quite stunning image which I could wish was mine.

Very impressive - I love the almost painterly quality of the colours and textures in the vaulted ceiling.

Many thanks indeed for all the great comments you've added to this piece. I did add a 'Digitally Manipulated' tag to this one, as I had added the shaft of light as an after-thought. It seemed to fit the situation quite well, and so I felt justified. Hope it didn't spoil the effect knowing that, but thanks for all the support...

You really have got the best out of this amazing location. This is a stunning picture and I'm sure that if Anthony Gormly saw it he would insist that they kept the crypt flooded at all times. Smile
It was great to meet you at Focus on Sunday.
