Angel of Purity

By AntHolloway
A second upload from the open day at the Victoria Baths in Manchester. This stained glass window has been restored as part of the ongoing works in the Turkish Baths part of the building. I've used a fisheye lens to capture the full window and ceiling, then used a radial mask to desaturate the image from the colourful glass to black and white at the edges. This also stops the green tiles from dominating the image too much.

Cheers Vanda, Rickster, Tony. The lens was about 180 quid new from Poland via ebay, it is manual controls only.
