Pipes And Lights

By lifesnapper  
Hi all, hope you're enjoying the Bank Holiday so far, I wish the weather where better here in the South East, it's really nowhere near as warm as it should be this time of Year, and never far away from a good soaking:-(
Well just for a change on a Sunday, I thought I'd upload something rather apt, if you're that way inclinedSmile Rochester Cathedral, is the second oldest in the Country, the oldest being Canterbury, just a few miles away from here. The Organ is very impressive, and sounds devine, especially the low notes which seem to go right through to the very soul, not sure if that's the intention Smile Hope you like this little set of six, and before you say it Ed', yes those Candles ARE Piping hot Smile

Thanks for all your kind comments and votes on my 'Globe Artichoke' and ok Dave, I'll try to find something more to your liking very soon Smile

All the best to all,

John Smile

It's your excellent use of the light (rather than the lights) that strikes me about the entire set, John. You have brought out the richness of the colours without exaggeration. Even V4 is what the human eye would first notice when surrounded by semi-darkness - the bright external light would be blinding: granted, the eye adjusts to balance the two in a way the camera can not.
V1, V3 (very much the human perspective) and V6 would be my top three if I were forced to choose.
Enjoy your Bank Holiday!

All really good, - I especially like that last one, - its quite special in that it conveys a message rather than being a photo.

Looks like shooting all these "birds" has finally paid off, and there a place for you in photo heaven after all. Maybe you should call the series 'Atonement"!

A superb set of interiors from Rochester and accompanied by such an interesting narrative. Bill ("woolybill 1") has put it so well, I could not better his comments and I have to agree with all he has said.

Thanks for all your comments, some of them really made me smile Smile You know who your are Smile

The lighting in v1 is superb. You've really manage to capture this beautifully. The rich tones of the wood and detail in v3 is well captured too.
Here, in my part of the world, I think it is warmer than usual - I wish I could share with you!

So you did spend your Bank Holy Day in a church then after all! lol An excellent and varied set of ecclesiastical images. So the weather wasn't too good over the bank holiday then, it was set fair all week in West Wales, save for a short sharp shower early on Sunday morning.
