Here is a photograph taken from inside Sacred Heart Church. Located in Blackpool, Lancashire, England, UK.
Great shot, Mike. You may be an atheist but you obviously appreciate the beauty of church interiors and the work of the creators. I'm really glad you don't stay away from them as many would!
Maybe there is a God and she creates these beautiful churches and cathedrals luring in atheist photographers, knowing that once they visit one, they'll be hooked for life. Cunning minx.
I really like this type of photos and you are very good in taking them, great work!
It's very light and airy isn't it? A big contrast to the plain stone and dark wood of C of E churches. I guess the bold colour and the paintings shout Catholic - I guess this is what a lot of our medieval churches and cathedrals would have looked like before the whitewashing of the Reformation. Having said that I've seen pieces of frescoes and plasterwork in St Alban's Cathedral that have survived and they're by no means restrained! I believe that Durham Cathedral's Romanesque columns also bear traces of the colourful past that it once had.
I visited Durham Cathedral once. It was spectacular inside but sadly they allowed no photography at all from inside the central cathedral.
good symmetry, contrast, color, sharpness
Composition wise I like symmetrical photographs. I should really try other points of view now an then.
So beautiful and very straight as always...!!!
I have a bit of help from my camera. It has a digital gyroscope built in it. I can see if it is perfectly level and adjust the tripod ever so slightly if it is out by even a small fraction.
How about that one, eh? Absolutely stunning!
I know the ceiling is a bit red. I did got mad with the saturation, honest George! Hehehe it was naturally a strong blood red colour, if anything I toned it down a little.
Nothing wrong with it at all, looks good. There's nothing wrong with any technique, when it's appropriate to do so. The problems start when people just automatically use a technique without asking themselves if they should.
