Hi.
The picture is amazing. I really like the dramatic composition.
I would try to take another one a bit brighter (to make the top of the Cathedral brighter, but there is a chance that the center will be too bright) and then compare the 2 pictures to see which one is nicer.
Anyway, I like it a lot the way it is.
BTW, what time was it? How much light was there?

Liron.

Very nice. You could reveal the detail in the shadows like Amitzil suggested by using the photo to make a HDR.

I do have a slightly brighter one, I'll make an HDR as soon as I get decent image editing software! The photo was taken at around 7:00 PM, long after sunset and there wasn't much light - the lights lighting up the cathedral were quite dim.

Very nice and natural looking balance of shadows and light.
I wouldn't HDR it...

Great picture. I agree with Thomas. I think the natural lighting and shadows are excellent. It would be fun to experiment with HDR on this one, but I think it would look better as is.

But thats just me :)

HOLY MOLY!
I just stumbled over this one - this is NEAT!
With an OLY e510?
If I could do it over again I'd go for Oly myself :D (am strapped with payments for all those K-Mount lenses and 2 K100 bodies now, but happy with the results)
This sure is a nice shot, couldn't be better!

Great shot mate! I agree with Thomas, I wouldn't attempt to HDR this one either. Maybe a little localised editing to highlight the structure but no more than that.

I'm quite surprised to see this thread brought up again! This was actually my first time using a DSLR.

well, I am glad it was brought up again, because it is one of my favorite church shots...so many good ones, around and about, with so many new faces, and talents, it is good to see this one, again..the lighting is wonderful...instead of a cold old church, it has a warm glow...I wish you could post it for this months on Assignment, but, I know you can't..it seems the epitome of light.


love it, still.
