St Botolph's Church,Boston,Lincolnshire (The Boston Stump)

By shane99  
This is an image at sunrise of the Boston Stump ( St Botolphs Church ) in Lincolnshire,when i took this image i was hoping for a totally different effect, however when I put the image onto the computer i was never this happy with an image that turned our wrong as I was with this one, this image has sold more than any other image of mine to date. The sheer scale of this building still amazes me and to think its 700 years old just makes you wonder how it was achieved all those years ago.

Superb image, I really like the silhouetted building and its reflection in the water.

very difficult condition for a good image. you have send it to the critique gallery for help. i am giving you some points if you like it you can use particularly for this kind of situation.

1. always try to read in camera histogram for proper exposure because this kind of situation gives you a challenge to expose properly.

2. you or your camera has exposed for the highlighted part of the image as a result maximum part of the image has lost detail in the dark area.

3. this kind of situation often requires ND grad filter for proper exposure of the sky as well as of the land.

4. the sun below the horizon is the best time for this kind of photography or at least the sun should be behind you.

5. take multiple exposure and merge the images.

Hope it helps,
