Not the greatest comp I know, but the incoming light through the doors was gorgeous and wanted to try and catch the various reflections across the top of the pews … sort of succeeded …
I like it anyway :-)

Capturing people being people, and the finer details of four and two wheeled blingy classic automotives – two fave ‘topics’ of imagery :-))

    Well so do I. I know you are averse to cropping Ell, but for me, that block of black at the bottom is not valuable “negative” space in this case. I feel it unbalances the overall subject and the image would benefit from masking it off to eliminate the first pew reflection from the bottom. I very much like “Eyelet” and “Under” too.

  • Yes yes, you’re right you’re right Rhoufi :-) Knew before posting that it could do with a good chop off the bottom BUT, the only reason I didn’t is because it would lose it’s length … should have tipped the camera UP a fair bit more than I did at the time … ah well, now I’ll just have to back for another go – oh what a pity ;-)

    Have you explored Fed square yet? They have a Secondhand Book Market there every saturday, 11.00am – 5.00pm – great for street photography :—)).

    You could revisit St Paul’s. Looks like the 50mm f1.8 does well in the low light of the cathedral.

  • What a great link! Thanks my friend :-)
    Yet to explore Fed Sq properly, have been too distracted with other ‘things’ to poke the camera at ;-) … but I’ll get there :-)
    Getting a good handle on shutter speed/exposure settings now, which greatly assists the 50mm towards better imaging – funny about that ;-)
