Sutton Bonington - St.Michaels 5/5

When we visited St.Michael’s Church, Sutton Bonington, the light outside wasn’t very good, with no lighting in the church and very little coming in through the windows from outside hence the presentation of this close-up in the chancel being presented like this. Although it is only a small village as well as the two Anglican churches there are also Baptist, Methodist and Roman Catholic churches to serve a population of just over 2,000.

You have done rather well in the low light, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ray.
Nice coloring, Brian!
Brian Walbey: Trying something a bit different Elizabeth.

Nicely handled Brian
Brian Walbey: Thanks Chris. This is going in front of a judge at my club on Tuesday evening, I wonder what he/she wall have to say!

a fascinating selective colouring- the red light may signalise the 'eternal light'.
Brian Walbey: It now seems to have become the normal thing for most Anglican/Catholic churches to have an 'eternal light' burning all the time these days.

You've done well with the available light in that case. I would be surprised if the entire congregation of all the churches in the area would amount to more than around 100 people each Sunday.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Alan. You are probably right about the total size of congregation although I believe the Baptist church is well supported. This is going in front of a judge at my club on Tuesday evening, I wonder what he/she wall have to say!

I am amazed to read there are so many places of worship there, Bbrian
Brian Walbey: I guess with the two villages becoming joined over the centuries there was a call for several churches at various times.
Nicely done Brian. That is a lot of churches
Brian Walbey: Thanks Bill. This is going in front of a judge at my club on Tuesday evening, I wonder what he/she wall have to say!
This worked well with the coloring.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Mary. This is going in front of a judge at my club on Tuesday evening, I wonder what he/she will have to say!

You have done well to produce this picture. A good place, if all of the 2,000 people go to church.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Louis. Going by national statistics I guess a large majority of the 2,000 will not be going to any of the churches, that is the way of the U.K.these days!
i though this image as in b&w with selected colour on the flame Brian... then i noticed the bits of red flowers on the altar cloth... you framed it very well....petersmile
Brian Walbey: Thanks Peter. This is going in front of a judge at my club on Tuesday evening, but with the red taken out of the altar cloth, I wonder what he/she will have to say!
Fine shot in the circs, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Tom.
