A small town with a HUGE university or three . It really must be dead when there are no students. We went there today so my host could finish his registration for his PhD .













All taken with the K30 and the 18-135 lens - the weather changed from dark cloud and chilly , to a bit of sun , to warm , and back again every few minutes. Most strange.

That BTW is only one part of one of the Universities Gorgeous place

A nice, sharp, clear set of pictures. A little lens correction to sort out the verticals and they'd be perfect.
Best wishes,

Andrew

Nice shots, but the fourth one really stands out. It conveys a certain 'feel' and works well as a documentary image of the building and a great shot in its own right.

Thanks for the comments on the last one - I was doubtful about it on the smallish screen [13 ins] on the Laptop . It would be nice to go back and see what else I can get sometime . I'm told the Chapel there is simply superb - but we couldn't get in

I've a feeling that these may be heading to FB to show people where our Seminarian is studying.

Wow, I remember visiting there many years ago, before I got into photography so I have no photos.

Nice place. The Virginia Creeper needs trimming
I really like the corridor shot. Camera position is perfect.

Thanks for the comments on the Cloisters shot - the more I look at it and see it , the more I'm stunned by how well it has worked.

When I was doing the PP on it [ Aperture] I hadn't realised just how well I"d captured the Portraits - I'd gone to try and get the shot with a few figures just to get the impression of the length and scale of the 'walk way' , but I didn't want it filled with hungry students flocking to the refectory to feed

Algi - that creeper - you ain't seen nuffin - it's everywhere there and eventually all the buildings will be covered by it

Another from yesterday - taken in our Church in Dublin . I'm still not 100% convinced I have this level . I ~think~ the small table behind the candle stand is - but is the rest ? Or of course was it built slightly askew ?

Can't get over just how sharp this lens is - again with the K30 and 18-135

Ireland once sank on one side by 0.7 degrees so that
makes it plumb
