Re: Wray Castle ceiling

Re: Wray Castle ceiling

That is really nice, amazing detail.

The OCD part of me noticed that it is slightly off centre (maybe because you can't get right under the middle). Maybe lop the top off slightly to remove the rail - make the image a bit more even?

Re: Wray Castle ceiling

Super shot Alf
I'll disagree a little with Marty because I think it adds something being not quite symmetrical (top to bottom of the image).

That is plain stunning. We have walked past many times but have never been inside.

Thanks for posting.

Thanks Marty but I do not have 7 feet long arms so symetry is not happening for this.
