Nikon D70 @ 10mm, 15 secs, f/4, ISO 200
I haven't managed to get to a computer for the last couple of days so apologies for the slow update. It would be nice if blogger had some of that software that lets you set up a post and have it automatically published for you at a certain date/time. Anyone out there care to come up with something? :)
Onto the shot... this is the 'obvious' shot of St. Mary's cathedral, with the last post being the 'expermintal' one. Again, taken in the early hours of the morning, with the cathedral being illuminated by the nearby street lights. The full moon was concealed behind the spire to give it a halo effect and you can just see the stars in this smaller version. I was amazed at how bright the moon was actually - just look at its reflection on the slated roof to the left of the spire.
I say that this is the obvious shot with no meaning of contempt - I actually quite like it. The 10mm was essential in this shot to avoid having to include street lights and cars. I usually try to keep my verticals vertical, but in this case I think the convergence of them adds to the imposing and dominating presence of the building. A simple shot, but is it effective?
