Thanks for the C&C's on yesterday's shelter image. I have a confession to make concerning the man in the shelter which I am sure some, if not all, of you realised which is that he wasn't there! I actually tried a few candids in Norway and he was in one of those. The shelter is in Deal and I loved the shape but the picture really needed somebody in it in my opinion so in he went. I am afraid my PS skills are not that good so it was probably fairly obvious.

Anyway, today's image is looking straight up at the ceiling of the Bell Harry Tower in Canterbury Cathedral. The guide nearby told me that the cross in the middle is actually a trapdoor through which they hoisted all the stone and other materials to build the rest of the tower above this ceiling and, apparently, the hoisting mechanism they used is still there. Given that it was finished around 1498 that just amazes me!

Thanks for looking
Jason

Fantastic POV on this one Jason, if not neck wrenching.. Amazing what you see or miss above you..an excellent shot very well controlled..nice symmetry.
Didn't spot the PS manipulation yesterday.. Still a good shot Wink

Superb architectural image with a wonderful POV, Jason. Impressive dynamic range, I am guessing from several exposures, if so superb processing, whatever great result. I had not recognised that it was a cloned figure yesterday, but it was perfectly placed and made the image.

Excellent indoor photography Jason - not easy to capture all the detail as you have done so well.
Definitely had me fooled re yesterday's - very well done - to cut out and place a seated man!!!!
Let me know how you get on at the CC with these. Our members don't do much of this at all.

This is a beautiful, wonderful shot - very well executed. As for your skills with PS - they are obviously a lot better than you think!

No Carole it was on the tripod but it was extremely difficult to get underneath the camera and see what I was pointing at which is why I faioled to get it completely symmetrical. GrinGrinGrin

What a fantastic image, Jason. At first I thought this was a helenlinda-type multi image made from one side.
THe blue rope, bottom left shows that it is not a manipulation.

Fooled me yesterday...didn't recognise that Norwegian blokeGrin
