Lady St.Mary Church, Wareham 4/7

A much closer view of the beautiful 14th.Century chancel and magnificent window in Lady St.Mary’s church at Wareham. Just for a change I was able to hold the detail in the window instead of my usual habit of getting it burnt out.

That's an impressive wall of glass, Brian, and you certainly have shot it well.
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Ray, one of my better window shots.

I love this close-up Brian! The stain glass is truly beautiful and I enjoyed marveling at the ancient interior of this gorgeous church. Well done.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Frances, it is certainly very fine for the church of what would have been a small town at one time.
The windows are awesome. Great catch too. Was it just a tour or did you stay for a service?
Brian Walbey: Thanks Jacqueyn. Just a visit during the day we spent in Wareham. I always go in the churches as you'll probably have realised by now, this was not only a fine church but lots of light to take photos.
The window is really amazing! Lovely job!!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Elizabeth, I'm going in even closer to the window tomorrow.
I am fond of those windows in churches
Brian Walbey: So am I Chantal although I don't usually get photos as good as this one.

I should imagine that HDR is a good solution to window burn-out Brian
Brian Walbey: Could well be Chris although a tripod would be essential for HDR in a church and they don't all like that.
That is a beautiful window Brian. Excellent picture
Brian Walbey: Thanks Bill, it really is a magnificent window.

I hope they have that window protected with the usual plastic Brian. I'm sure they do.
Brian Walbey: I didn't get that close to find out Chad.

Superb window, amazing colours smile
Brian Walbey: Isn't it magnificent Linda.
I can just imagine the amount of work that went into producing a window of this size, Brian. The detail is incredible and you captured it in all its glory with this beautiful shot.
Brian Walbey: I quite agree Beverly, there is some real artistry in that window. A closer shot of part of it tomorrow.
Good detail all around,Brian,stained glass can be difficult.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Frank, it all seemed to work well with this window.
Fine detail throughout Brian especially windows and altar cloth
Brian Walbey: Thanks Martin.
I am impressed by the stain-glass window Brian! Very nicely captured too.
Brian Walbey: Indeed Richard, as was I.
Lots of lovely detail Brian. The light seems to be coming through the window on the left, so not too bright behind the stained glass.
Brian Walbey: Thanks John. I was lucky with the lighting that morning.

What a wonderful window, great capture
Brian Walbey: Thanks Anne.
I generally under-expose this kind of shot to make sure of window detail. Whatever you did worked well here!
Brian Walbey: I just took a straight shot as per the cameras system and this time it worked out well.

Brian Walbey: Thanks Alan, more detail tomorrow.
Beautifully exposed shot. Nice one!
Brian Walbey: Thanks David, the light was very kind to me that day.
