Lincoln cathedral cloister2

By xwang
This is one of the bracketing photos I intended to do HDR, but it was too dark. Obviously, handholding bracketing 1/6sec is more difficult than sigle one,perhaps the camera was jumping all over the placesSmile. Instead of bin them all, I turned one of them in B&W, I quite like the trolley filling up the space, otherwise it would be another boring photo..of course only from photographic point of view.. this is perhaps the tea trolley for the tea, coffee&cakes for the other side of the clositer on previous uploading...thanks for looking.

I'm going to disappoint you now, Jasmine. The trolley would look fine if it occupied the space bottom right but placed where it is it blocks your view as you travel down the cloister. I like the "A" frame of the board where it is. The end of the corridor finishes off-set on the left third, and you've got some lovely detail and texture in this mono.

The architecture, repeats, perspective and mono are very nice, Jasmine, but the board and trolley don't gel for me. Perhaps it's just that that they are too modern for the atmosphere to be retained. This would, if uncluttered, be an ideal background for something more interesting to be placed in the foreground. I hope you don't mind my comment, it gets my vote anyway, because I like the way you have composed the image for best effect.

Thank you Dave. Disappoint me? No, I enjoy being challenged. I see it as a way of learning, and see how others see the world. The problem is there isn't enough...Grin I like changes and differences, and try not to repeat myself too much,but sometimes I can't help to repeat myself, sorry for thatWink.. I had taken some photos in Basel cathedral's cloister without anything in the front view, I picked up this one for a change, for better or worse? That would be an experience. Like the previous Lincoln cloister's photo, some people like the shadows, tables and chairs, some people thought they shouldn't be there..I understand it all. It depends on how we see the place.
I don't konw much about rules.. and enjoy the freedom without itGrin.. No,no,.. rule is safe, nothing can go wrong within the rules, I just don't want to be locked in it and have an extra thing to think about...Grin
Thank you very much again.
Thank you all.

Thank you Pamela. I didn't see your comment when I wrote above. Yes, it is . That is exactly what I thought when I talked about the previous photo. After I saw the coffee shop on the other side, the clositer is more like a place to have a rest, a kind of community centre full of ordinary daily life rather than a religion place. That's why some people thought that the coffee shop shouldn't be there. This little trolley exactly made me think like that. It reduces the religion atomsphere to ordinary life one. This is what I recorded..otherwise it is just a cloister, but this is the life in cloister in modern day today...
Of course I wouldn't mind whatever you say,Palema. As I have already said, I enjoy being inspires thinking and great for learning. You've been my teacher on EPZ, still is, and will be in the future. Never mind vote.Wink
