Wakefield Cathedral

By TrevBatWCC    
Feeling the need to take some new images, went out on Saturday afternoon with the camera as the weather was quite reasonable. Wakefield's not very inspiring for photography (is anyone's home town?), but went uptown armed with just the fisheye lens on the camera to try to get something different. I started here in front of the cathedral. As presented in some of my uploads from the National Railway Museum back in March, I converted some to ultrawide-angle using the option in Nikon Capture NX-D, the lead being one such conversion. V1 is as shot with the fisheye.

Many thanks to Colleen, Dave (HobbitDave), Graham (Ericsamson), Geoff (Simmo73) and Leo for their User Awards on my previous upload, The Manager's House , most appreciated 🏆👍

Raw image processed in Adobe Camera Raw, conversion to ultrawide-angle option in Capture NX-D, tweaked in Nik Collection's plugins, and Photoshop Elements 2020.

Thanks again to everyone for your vote & comments on my previous uploads, it really is appreciated and encouraging 😃👍

Trev 😀

An impressive edifice, well captured...Think I prefer the ultra wide angle....wonder if it looks how the architect envisaged? 😁😁

I have to take my (virtual) hat off to Nikon for that straightening tool - it does an amazing job! Not like me, an old Canon fan, to praise Nikon!Wink
As for home town's not being seen as photogenic, I beg to disagree- It is just that we are totally blind - in general - to what we are used to seeing every day. I lived in Southampton during my fledgling photographer days, and it wasn't until a return visit, some time after moving away, that I actually saw what was there all the time, but unseen by me.

yes, indeed, the fisheye straightening tool works magic!

Nicely done Trev as usual. Prefer this to the fisheye. It's like a long exposure with the movement in the sky and trees, but I see that it's not. Interesting....

Like them both particularly your version two

Cracking work with those verticals in you lead Trev.
A stunning building with a great sky.
The fisheye lens must be such fun to play with.
