That seems like a lot of pews for a private chapel. Must have been a big family.
And there's a sword on the wall???

Pay a visit Alan, and you can ask the questions. It's a fascinating visit and the guides are lovely. (I had a long conversation with this lady, apparently most people's photos of the interior turn out pink. The D7500's auto white balance coped very well, she was impressed.)

In God we trust, but not 100% if our enemies are banging at the door...

I feel there's somehow a better balance here compared to the previous one.
There's a lot of explaining and pointing out going on in the background...

She doesn't seem to be paying attention.

I will admit - black and white does tend to get rid of a pink cast

I find this one is better balanced than the first image. In this one the garland being the focal point was on the right hand edge so you tended to view from right to left. In this view on the left side so your usual viewing angle from left to right which I feel gives a better flow to the image. Methinks?

Thanks again folks. The sword... Well medieval chivalry, particularly in its later romanticized editions, turned the sword into a Christian icon, and that was picked up by Reginald Blomfield in his design of the Cross of Sacrifice for the War Graves Commission.
I'm interested that a number of people prefer this to the previous upload. I wonder if it's the more accommodating left to right sight line?

That sword is pointing down at the chap who is pointing up. Up, down, left, right, black, white. I like it.

I like how the garland seems to have the shape of a human figure about to step out into the aisle.... 😀

Wonderful Moira. Love the pov, composition and dof of this image. They say
that a good picture should tell a story. This one makes very interesting reading.
Nicely done.

I really like this Moira. I find the sharpness of the wreath on the left balances well with the out of focus figures etc which make up the rest of the image.
