About the Image(s)

I took these pictures during the 2019 PSA Conference at a Catholic Cathedral Church tour in Spokane, Washington. Built in the early 20th Century, the stained glass was all made in Germany, and all handmade marble. It was taken with a Rebel 5i and a Tamron 18-200mm. The Wikipedia has more information on the history a few larger pics.,_Washington)

Oh my goodness Gavin. This church looks almost like the Roman Catholic Church in my town! My eye finds the vanishing perspective very interesting. So here's another crop idea. I corrected the perspective, then cropped out the bright chandelier and the statue on the right. Probably 6 of 1 and 1/2 dozen of the other.   Posted: 04/10/2021 17:14:11

The stained glass window and marble are impressive indeed and great light through the window. For me though a bit distracting in terms of the Symmetry angle. I think for me i would have tried a vertical shot perhaps. The repeating lines of the columns are great so maybe less of the window but not sure what effect you were trying for? I think Connie's crop is more pleasing to me. An interesting subject though for sure.   Posted: 04/19/2021 10:56:38

I see symmetry in the repetition of having statues on the sides of the windows. For this assignment, I would crop off the window on the right. I'd be able to see the interior of the church better if it was brighter.   Posted: 04/19/2021 21:20:17

Such a lovely church! Your image is well exposed and perfect for our topic. I agree that the large window in the foreground is distracting. It is the brightest part of the frame and holds my eye. I like Connie's crop because the bottom part of the marble and the dark pews are interesting and also are very symmetrical.   Posted: 04/21/2021 11:42:35
