Have been to St.Pauls Cathedral a few times now, but not quite this early in the day before … the light, directly overhead at the time, was utterly amazing in it’s difference to late afternoon!! :o))

Canon 50D, 50mm f1.8
Available light (late December, noon)
Straight from camera, no post-ed

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

    Fun perspective, great light!

  • Thank you Jeff :o))
    Thepeople were an obvious ‘target’ (hehe) and then noticed the light under their feet/pew … a no-brainer to include that as well! :o)))

    Oh, that’s just gorgeous. We see so many shots submitted to Candid Photography taken from behind the subject that simply don’t work. This is a perfect example of what you need to do to make a candid from this angle. Somehow think it might get featured. Not that I would know;-)

  • Hiya Chris :o)))
    You know, I hesitated submitting this to ‘Candid Photography’ because of the ‘view’ from behind so to speak, but gave it a go with the idea that at least some part of the faces are visable … thanks so much and so glad you approve!! :-D
