photoblog image St.David's Cathedral

St.David's Cathedral

I showed a couple of exterior shots of this delightful little cathedral in South Wales after my recent visit during our Tenby holiday and this is a shot of the main area of the building taken from partway down the nave.

As with most photos taken in such places it was a little dark, but then I picked up a short tutorial from here http://www.photoanswers.co.uk/Advice/Search-Results/Techniques/How-to-rescue-underexposed-JPEGs/?id=2198 which helped to rescue the picture somewhat. I have tried this out with other pictures and it really works.

This Photoanswers is a free weekly e-mail magazine and often gives some really good advice and technique tutorials.

You are the master of these interior shots, Brian, and I mean that sincerely!
Brian Walbey: Flattery will get you everywhere young Ginnie, thanks for your comment.

As a self confessed Heathen of the highest order, many people are amazed that I love churches and cathedrals so much. Almost a pasion in life to visit them worldwide, I love the history, the architecture and never tire of finding a new one.

A gorgeous image
Brian Walbey: Thanks Paul, I don't think you really need to be religious to admire and respect these buildings, whether large or small, the people who built them done it for their beliefs to the highest standard they could, and left us with a beautiful heritage.
This is the cathedral in the 'village' city. So quirky that, Brian. lol at FLOOG. He is a high church heathen.
Brian Walbey: For such a small village, as you call it Chad, it is amazing that they have got such a beautiful building in their midst.

I'm with Floog's view on the interest of such places. Wonderful detail in this. Just look at those oragin pipes, too; I'd love to hear it played!

I've got agreement to photograph the inside of Christchurch Priory before the Great Unwasked visit so I'm looking forward to that.

Thanks to the link to Photoanswers.
Brian Walbey: THanks Alan, I would have loved to have heard the organ also, it is just as impressive round the other side in the Choir area. make the most of your shoot at Christchurch, hopefully we will see some of the results.

Excellent photo of an inpressive building
Brian Walbey: Thanks vintage, as Chad says this beautiful building is in a large village in South Wales, not a large town or city. There are a couple of external views of the building on my 7th.& 8th.August postings.
That's a great shot Brian: I think I will read the link you have so kindly provided
Brian Walbey: Thanks Chris, I hope you found the link of some interest.
