Durham Cathedral

By flowerpower59
Last night a party of us had arranged to have this magnificent building to ourselves. These were the "easy" shots with the cathedral lighting switched on, but they were soon switched off to allow us to shoot in natural light. There was not a lot, despite it being a sunny evening outside. Very challenging, with such a massive tonal range from the deep shadows to the bright windows. I bracketed everything, so maybe there will be more images to come when I have done with processing.

Good, and I'm looking forward to more. (I'd like to move a step to the right here for symmetry).
Well done on obtaining this opportunity, normally photography is strictly forbidden. The only chance I have had was when Kathleen was involved in a Flower Festival and we were offered the chance to take photographs at 6.30am. We turned that down...

Wonderful building, can't wait to see what you've done with it in natural light.

A great shot, and yes, a step to the right would be the icing on the cake!
Kind regards

Thankfully the original is more central, but not quite straight, so I rotated it a fraction, forgetting it would upset the symmetry. I'll pull it straight instead then all will be well Blush

It may well be the camera was not precisely parallel to the front of the church, where the altar is, rather than a step to the right? You can tell as there more of the side left row of pews visible than the right, and the last pew row on the left is wider than the right. BUT its an excellent shot, wonderful detail, the rest important if you are targeting perfect architectural symmetry. Of course it possible you cropped from the right! Only the original will tell..
