A place I have long promised myself to visit and despite living in Glasgow for many years some considerable time ago, only ever saw in the passing. Love the pov in this and doesn't the cathedral look splendid, if not as large and grand as others!

The lighting and mood created seem so appropriate to the subject content of your shot. Like it very much indeed.

I think you have done well to choose a combination of focal length, subject distance and aperture to achieve such a depth of field that the entire scene is sharply in focus.

However, that said, it looks to me as though there are some problems with the exposure. Since you have included a lot of sky in the top of the frame, I think the meter in your camera has been fooled and, as a result, the bottom of the frame is a little on the dark side. But then it is a picture of a necropolis, so I suppose it should be a little on the dark side. In the old days, they used a neutral graduated filter to prevent this underexposure. However, nowadays, I think they can correct it in post-processing.

As far as the composition is concerned, I like the light and shadow on the cathedral, giving it a three-dimensional appearance in the two dimensional photograph. But I don't like the dome, slap bang in the middle of the foreground. It blocks the way for my attention to be drawn into the photograph. I think the compostion would have been much improved, if you were to have taken the photograph further to the right, so that the dome would have been repositioned to the bottom left hand corner of the frame. Then this dome would have been the foreground interest; the cathedral, the interest in the middle ground; and the sky, your background interest.

i agree with you on many levels peter, and the trouble is this was the best composition i could find without the cathedral being blocked by trees. as for moving over to bring the dome to the left, that is exactly what i wanted but about two feet right of me was a huge drop. i thank you for your opinion and everyone else too Smile
