Worcester Cathedrel

Title says it all really, architecture is not usually my thing.

I rather like the last one...there's a lot of potential in that shot.

Do you have any more to show us?

So how come you are so good at it?

I really like No 3, the inclusion of the pointing figure makes it a powerful image.

Re: Worcester Cathedrel

All photographs are just shapes, light dark and colour, which we extract from the world. You seem to have done well in finding the right shapes to extract from that scene.

Nice shots

Nick

Paul, they are lovely.
I really like all those great angles in No2.
Every time I try something architectural it just looks a mess!

Re: Worcester Cathedrel

Paul was No 3 actually like that or did you photoshop in the figure. Either way it's very striking. I like the angles you got in the others too. Did you have to align them in PP to get them to look so correct?

Sorry Janet, just one more stained glass window shot, as I said not my thing and my wife had to drag me in there.
I much prefer my shot of Worcester Bridge and the candid's I did in the High St.

Thank you John, not that good when compared to someone like Nick who has a passion for it which really shows in his images, especially in his interior shots.

Thank you Nick, but see above as to why I disagree with you.

Thank you Lyn, keep trying I'm honestly not that good at it apart from the technical side and was very happy to get just a few keepers.

Hi Peter, no there was no Photoshop jiggery pokey on this one, why does everyone think I always do it when I rarely do except on other peoples images, in the thousand of images I have there must be only ten that have been altered that way, I could post those few to get them out of the way.

I just had to get low down to get the sculpture under the window.
I did have to fix the converging verticals on all of them to some extent and rather a lot on the first one, but this was done at the raw stage in CO6 Pro, which actually does a better job of it than Photoshop.

My favorite cathedral.I go here a lot as my daughter is at uni in Worcester.

A visit up the tower and into the cathedral library is a must.

Nice set.

When it comes to church interiors Nick is an exception. If the truth be told he is probably one of the best photographers of this genre in the country. He would disagree because he is always agonizing over the smallest details in his pictures and being a perfectionist is exactly what makes him so good.

I like to think that I used to take the occasional really good landscape, despite the fact that I could never compete with the likes of Joe Cornish, Charlie Waite, etc.

Hi Paul,

I think no.3 is clever, and makes an interesting shot.

Nice. I've walked round it several times, but never been inside. My usual view of it is from inside New Road.
