Lichfield Cathedral

Just went for practice and it's quite picturesque here. No tripod so used a chair for stability.

Good composition, great use of the chairback, both as foreground interest and as support, nice depth.

Well captured considering you were using a chairback. A slightly longer exposure and the figures would have gone completely, maybe you prefer the ghostly image?
Either way, I love this type of shot and yours is excellent. Look forawrd to seeing what you can acheive using a tripod.

Thank you for your comments and feedback, much appreciated.

I do like the ghostly image, I like the way they fill that space and I like the idea of the stillness of the Cathedral and the comparrison with the apparent pace of the visitors.
