This thirteenth century corridor was built for the purpose of washing feet on Maundy Thursday to replicate the gesture that Jesus performed on the night before he died, whereby as an act humility for a rabbi in relation to his disciples: he washed their feet. The word ‘pedilavium’ comes from two Latin words (‘pes, pedis’ meaning ‘foot’ and ‘lavo’ meaning ‘I wash’).

On the west side of the corridor are the arcades at which it is thought the people sat, who were to have their feet washed. There is passageway behind for each to have a ‘supporter’.

I originally took this shot in Lichfield Cathedral a few years back and having spotted it I thought that I could make a better job of processing it now with more refined techniques. Hand blending gave me far more control than the HDR/tonemapping route I originally used. 5 shots -2, -1, 0, +1 and +2 were used to maximise the tonal range throughout.

Cheers for looking in, catch up soon.

Paul

Hi Paul,

Layer blending has worked perfectly giving great natural looking tones.

I don't know about you but I've battled away with HDR and most of the time I can never quite overcome the look of artifice about it.

A top quality capture.

I like it Paul, yes manual blending works. One niggle, and one had you shot now I don't think would be there, is the far window, the one that draws you in, for me isn't quite shard enough, my guess you were using autofocus back in those days.

Almost definitely was AF Nick being the 350D didn't have Live View, but trust me it's plenty sharp ... you can even make out the type on the sculpture of 'Edward Sydney Woo'd and the sign for the 'Chapter House' on the wall. 1000px doesn't do it justice ... told you that before I think Wink

HNY mate, hope you're well!!!

Yea probably have said it before, you know I'm picky, like someone else I know Wink ( and I'm just the same if not more so with my own stuff)

Yes I'm fine, we must catch up sometime.
