Window Reflection

While wandering around an old Bedfordshire church last Saturday, this caught my eye - the partial reflection of a stained glass window in the glass front of a wooden cabinet on the adjacent wall. It wasn't an easy shot as there were lots of chairs stacked in front (the remainder being socially distanced in the nave), and I had only the kit lens (18-55 WR) on the KP. I used live view and reached out above the chairs in an attempt get a reasonable composition.




KP in Av Mode; Lens at 55mm; ISO 1250; 1/15s at f/8 -2EV; adjustments and crop in PaintShop Pro. Any comments welcome.

Given the constraints it's an excellent composition.
Both the *istDS and the K5 are incurably addicted to old glass

Really good. Love the little face below the jug, it complements the halos/heads in the reflection nicely. Well worth the struggle to get the composition.

Just a minor niggle - a small rotation anticlockwise, please, to make the corner of the walls vertical. My eyes seem to be rather sensitive to that sort of thing.

Like this very much Philip, right up my alley.

Seems like a case of choosing between a vertical wall or a vertical right side of the cabinet?

Thanks to you all for your helpful comments, particularly regarding the corner of the wall.

I think this can be corrected in PaintShop Pro. Is this acceptable? :-

Excellent shot and well spotted, small Churches are not the easiest of subjects usually due to lack of light and 20th century items in the way in an 11th-12th century building
K3 II and the odd lens or 2
