The Church of St, Patrick

By Fefe
Morning people, although it will be evening people by the time I get backTongue....
Firstly this is a first for me, in a few way's.... I have never uploaded a proper indoors image, well I dont think so. Never the inside of a church, so a first for stained glass windows. And another first because I am not going to babble onTongueSad... no time, I will save it for Ron..... LateRonGrinGrin
A great big thanks to Netta(Netta1234) and Ray(Billyray) for the UA's on my last upload, and to all for votes and commentsGrinGrinGrin Thrilled to bits.
Two versions of this beautiful church (taken with the Canon) in the village (or maybe its a small town) of Patrington between Hull and Kilnsea.
Not sure how I have done with the verticals, so please forgive me if they are not fabBlush please remember its a first tryBlush

These are brilliant Diane, bright, colourful, nothing like the Church I use to attend, mine was dark and dismal, not to mention cold.

Bright and airy, and the light through those side windows is lovely, Diane. The verticals may not be perfect but the angle of capture makes the image look more natural.

For a first attempt excellent Diane, and it looks like a tripod has been used looking at the shutter speed, if not very steady hands, if you look in the handbook you will find that you can have a grid imposed in the viewfinder! This would help you compose the verticals and horizontals by lining edges with the grid, or a simple spirit level on the hot shoe would also do, but an excellent couple of captures.

I normally just stay outside of churches Diane to find some rust
as I have a fear of going inside.
I am worried someone will stick a plate under my nose,
and I have to put 10p in it !!
Good shots.

A beautiful interior, and well done on these two shots, Diane - church interiors are not the easiest of subjects, but you've managed to capture the detail and the colours in the stained glass windows Wink

Two gooduns Diane. It helps when doing church photography to say a little prayer first.asking for divine help in getting the verticals vertical.

Two really great shots and without the right kit very difficult to get those verticals right, if I may be so bold as to suggest that you take a slightly wider shot and then apply some lens correction in photoshop to bring them into their correct perspective. You need to go wider as you will loose some in the editing process! I've mailed you!
