Inside Exeter Cathedral with the hand-held K-3 and 28-105 zoom in ambient light:

1. The Quire (choir) and Organ - some of the carved oak dates back to the 13th century:



2. The stone Pulpitum Screen (between the Nave and the Quire) built in the 14th century, with biblical scenes painted in the 17th century:



Cheers.

Nice shots 👍

I like a decent religious building from the very small on the West coast of Wales to the very large and small of York etc they are all impressive in my view. Though I have no religious preference.

I was at a Baptism on Sunday in Gresford, cracking building but as a Godparent I decided that taking pics of the building was not appropriate ☺

Exeter Cathedral certainly looks impressive ☺

Very precise compositions Philip, and you have produced a sense of depth within the spaces, I presume through use of a smallish aperture. Good sharp results, considering you weren't using a tripod.

Thank you, Stu and Nigel.

It is a very impressive place Stu, and I agree - I have no religion but I find that many churches big or small are wonderful buildings and pleasant peaceful places to be.

Nigel, the aperture was actually f/5.6 (enough to include about 3.5m onwards), giving 1/30s at ISO 1000, so well within the SR capability for 28mm focal length. This technology still amazes me!

Cheers.
Philip

Nicely shot, it's very impressive looking.
Like that, I'm not religious either, but often find the architecture impressive.
Good shooting
I know what i like, If not always why.

Exeter's nave is very impressive and long. The roof bosses are particularly lovely. Nicely judged exposure.
Best wishes,

Andrew

Thank you, Derek and Andrew - here are some of the roof bosses in natural light (handheld at ISO 1000); the central one depicts the murder of Thomas Becket; they are about 5 feet in diameter!




Cheers.

That looks very good for ISO 1000, the colour is excellent.
