Coventry Cathedral

By RogBrown
Went to Coventry Cathedral with DaveU the other day. Have to say I found the place
totally uninspiring & lacking in atmosphere & spirituality. Not a patch on the old
ones like Lichfield & Gloucester. This is about the best of the shots I took.
Nice lunch though! Smile

A very nicely composed and captured shot of the Cathedral with a wealth of detail and features, and,of course, so very different from the centuries old cathedrals.

I rather like the modern angular look here Rog, but then again I am a fan of the Brum Selfridge building. Good processing to bring out all the colour and detail.

It's the place that lets this pic down Rog, certainly not your processing which is dandy as per norm ..... but watch your back as that DavidHu character has a copy of Photomatix and is just behind you on the home straight.

TBH I've ditched all the cathedral pics and am concentrating on the church and guildhall stuff we took .... so much more character.

I know. I can feel him breathing down my neck!! Smile Mind you, anyone who likes the Selfridge building can't be much competition can he? Wink

DaveU's right Roger, it's the building that's the problem - more like a coat-hanger factory than a place of worship. Like the processing though, nice and clean... Dave

Like the angle you've chosen - the tapestry doesn't do much for me, but I do like the coloured glass windows - worth a visit though

I, like you Roger, prefer Litchfield and the other older Cathedrals but I was suprised by Coventry; there is more to photograph there than I thought, it just a lot longer to find than it does in 'proper' Cathedrals Grin
