I love visiting churches and other old buildings and have yet to master getting a good exposure in challenging lighting conditions.

Well done with this one.

I wondering if the composition needs a more obvious subject for guiding the eye to.

Getting older and grumpier. Taking longer to decide which lens to use today.

You'r right, Nigel. I could have used my 18-55 which would have been better but I only had the 28mm with me.
Best wishes,

IMHO it could work in BW too.

What drew me to this shot is that it shows a very simple church interior compared to the usual splendiferous offerings from Europe.

Many, many of our country churches in Canada look just the same as this.

I like this very much and also agree with the good Doctor that B&W would offer another, even more, spartan view.
