Canterbury Cathedral

By lilley  
Trying my hand at a 5 shot HDR merge with 1 stop between each. Merged the shots using Photomatix, hopefully I have not overdone the HDR effect, it is so easy to do so, but please let me know.

The Cathedral was really busy today, but the staff there are really friendly and have no problems with people taking photo's. At one point I looked up and found a Vicar (bishop?) stood next to me silently watching what I was up to. I was respectful of where I was and deferred to any that wanted to get in front of me for a quick snap. As a result I had an enjoyable hour, and as I gift aided my payment, I have got free entry for a year.

The candle on the floor marks the spot where Thomas Becket's shrine once stood. Becketís tomb has been moved and destroyed over the centuries, and now a simple candle is all that is left in the Trinity chapel. If you look outside at his statue, his head has been removed, probably forcefully when he was unpopular.

This is my favourite from your trio. Loving the cool blue light against the browns and tans, and a wonderful sense of the amazing interior space, especially when viewing fs. Great job, and no, I don't think you overdid the HDR; glad you were careful with it. Seen a lot of good shots wasted by over-cooking it, and, producing halos, which make them even worse.
