About the Image(s)

Sony a6600 “ Sony DT 18-35mm G OSS 1.8 @ 24mm ISO1600 1/40 f5

This is the west corridor of the cloisters in Gloucester Cathedral is seen in a few of the films of Harry Potter, you know that not well know wizard. I have been shooting these cloisters for nearly 40 years now and never thought at any time would come the day that I could hand old a camera and take a single image to take this image to do it justice. I have always done three or four images minimum to get the depth and detail you need and to gold the light. But I now stand corrected that it can be done. Who needs a tripod.

Yes, I could do three images for the different levels of light, but it has coped well.

Very basic in lightroom, levelled in Topaz then taken to Silver Efex and used Red filter for the base adjustment.

Wow, lots of sharp detail in this image. The tones are strong, the shapes are dramatic, and the composition with converging lines all give this image impact and interest. This would work in a vertical format also.   Posted: 07/04/2024 15:25:59

Outstanding Paul. I really like the B/W better than the color. This is a very sharp image and knowing that it was hand held is incredible. I see this as a framed print, hanging on someone's wall or gallery. Jerry   Posted: 07/11/2024 11:39:01
