Queens' College Chapel

By id_wright
The chapel of Queens' College in Cambridge (my college!) taken this afternoon just before the sun disappeared behind the buildings on the south side of Walnut Tree Court.

The college was first founded in 1448 by Margaret of Anjou, then refounded Elizabeth Woodville, wife of Edward VI, in 1465. This is why the apostrophe goes after the s of Queens'. The current chapel was completed in 1891, replacing the original chapel of 1448, now the college library.

HDR composite of three exposures - 1/5, 1/20, 1s all at f3.5 and ISO100. Processed using Photomatix and CS2.

Any feedback greatly appreciated!

Great photo. Like the light. Some details are maybe a bit too crisp for me. Have you used Shadow/highlight a lot?

no i didn't, but may have over-sharpened a touch
