Default Church of our Lady

Decided to take the afternoon off work today and popped by the Catholic church to take some photos. These are just two of many from today, and I think I'll be going back next week to do some more shots in there.

Here's the interior of the Church of our Lady:


Here's one of the stained glass windows:


For anyone who picked up on the distortion in the first shot, it was done using a fisheye lens and then de-fished. It's also three images merged into an HDR shot that's hopefully been kept tastefully tame .

I did a bunch of stained glass photos, but the second shot turned out the best. This is also an HDR made from 2 exposures.

Very neat !! I hope the pews are filled on Sundays ! I used to love wandering into different churches just to reflect /// sadly most are locked today . Luckily though when daughter Amy and I were in New York years ago , we were able to go into " The Little Church around the corner " . My parents were married there and I was baptisted there . It was neat to reflect and light a few candles for our loved ones . It's a sweet church if anyone has a chance to visit .

Thanks, Zoom, Baxter'smybaby, wcladymacbeth & Foxywench.

Thanks, Grammy. What I personally like about this church - aside from its beauty - is the fact that they welcome people to come in and appreciate/photograph the stained glass/art/interior so long as it's while they're open (which happens to be every day).

Thanks, Dekka. I generally avoid HDR like the plague, but in some instances, there's no alternative. The software I used for this HDR is like doing multiple exposures in-camera (subtle effect) and the tone-mapping seems pretty tame. The only down-side is it outputs small jpg's.

Thanks, Barb.
