From the church of St. Andrew in Penrith, Cumbria.
I find these subjects interesting to photograph, but rarely do justice to the fine workmanship. Advice on techniques will be gratefully received.

A lovely image of one of my favourite subjects, Ken!
Just a minor point, have you tried experimenting with exposure compensation, maybe -1, when taking pictures of stained glass?
It can help reduce 'glare' from the backlighting.

They are not the easiest of subjects, Ken, and like yourself I find them a challenge: but you have done very well here, getting the exposure pretty well spot on, and without over blown highlights.
Richard's helpful comment is worth considering........although darker areas may seem under-exposed, the detail can easily be recovered when processing.
With windows of this magnitude, it is sometimes worth homing in on a smaller part also, and often this will work even better.

Nicely captured Ken, and as said above, not the easiest subject, and it's better to under-expose if anything Smile
