St Magnus Cathedral – Interior

In my last post I promised you some shots of the interior of St Magnus’ Cathedral, well here you go…

It really is a beautiful Cathedral, very warm and welcoming with lots of interesting details. If you get an opportunity to visit then I highly recommend that you take the tour, as you get to see the upper levels of the Cathedral and the guides are extremely knowledgeable. Liz and I are really looking forward to re-visiting at Christmas this year and we can’t wait to see the lovely red sandstone walls be-decked with festive decorations and sparkly lights.

Just a quick note on the post-processing – I’ve used some of these interior shots to experiment with the detail extractor and tonal contrasts in Nik’s Colour Efex Pro 4. I’m really pleased with the results, but I would of course welcome your feedback.

The Polls Are Open

The Digital Lightroom

These are the 10 shortlisted pictures in the DLR Still Life Photography Competition once again.  The response has been brilliant.  It just gets better and better and harder and harder to choose just 10 images from all those entered.  You now have the even tougher job to choose just one image from the 10 excellent photographs listed below.

A quick note, this competition was started because we wanted to celebrate the excellent photography we see on a daily basis here at WordPress.  We didn’t want the competition to be about the blog or the blogger, a popularity contest in other words.  We want the competition to be purely about the photographs and we hope that you will vote with this ideal in mind.

The Photographs are listed in no particular order, post your vote carefully.
