I have been to Fountains Abbey many times but today I concentrated on the many different arches and vaulting which remain as part of the ruin. Those monks certainly knew how to build them!!

I really liked your photos! Myself, I am a great fan of photographing castles, churches, and cathedrals and architecture in general.

Nice set. You could take photos there all day!
Both the *istDS and the K5 are incurably addicted to old glass

Good compositions. Gear used for these?

Thanks for your comments. They were all taken with a Pentax KP and Pentax-DA f4 15 mm ED AL wide angle. Great little lens and a delight to use. I find using a prime lens gives a sense of freedom... one less decision to make I suppose.

Best wishes

Really nice set, I think that your composition choices have worked very well.

If I had to pick one - it's # 2 for me, the positioning of the tower in the arch and the light through the window in the tower makes it.

Nice... like how you've gone after one specific theme (arches)...

Thank you for the info, Graham.

(I like using the Limited primes on the KP - the combo feels good in the hand. Anything bigger on the KP than the 20-40 Limited zoom feels less comfortable to me, even with the largest grip.)

Cheers.

1 and 3 work well for me. Agree that your technique of using the arches to frame the other architecture works well.

Thanks everyone. Number 3 is my favourite. It is taken from an area of the abbey I have hardly visited before and it is a magnificent arch.

Great framing/composition throughout. I have a preference for the last one (which stays on theme, but from a different angle) for the intricate repeating patterns, light, and moncohrome-ish motif.

Thanks... its a cliche really and I have taken the same view many times before but I wanted to see what it looked like as an HDR image... 5 images stitched together in Lightroom.

Best wishes,

Graham
