    Augustinian Priory in Adare, founded in 1315, restored in 1807.
    To protect the old stained glass panes, from weathering and other less benign possibilities, a layer of plexiglas has been installed over the original panes.
    Occasionally, when the light hits at the right angle, a reflected image can be seen in the plexiglas which is as striking as the old designs and reminiscent of their form

      Fab contrast between grey frame & blue sky. Gloomy leafless tree is perfect reflection to the medieval window.

      Original and excellent photography, would you like to add for a competition it to Vidres-7

      In "Vidres" we expose pictures in which the crystal is the obligatory actual element. Through it, we must see, reflected or in transparency, people or things. You can upload them in the mural - there is no single limit - and ONE in the thread of opened discussion, where it will enter the competition

      I like the vibrancy of the reflection in this. It contrasts nicely with the greys of the stone. Is there more at the top of the window than there was in the print?

      yeah - I think Harvey Norman chopped the top off in printing - didn't notice until at home :(
      thinking now I could have left it as colour - not as much impact as B&W
      thanks for feedback

      That has happened me too. Now I make specific crops for the size I am printing to just to make sure that I have control over what gets chopped off.
