St Johns Cathedral

This is the main chamber in St Johns Cathedral in Brisbane.

 

I was unsure which way I prefer to view it and experimented for a while with different settings.

 

I did like the effect of removing the light levels in the ceiling which when seen with the vertical perspective distortion, gives a feeling of extreme height. It is quite a tall building anyway, but I liked the thought that it disappeared in the sky.

 

The cathedral is relatively dark internally, and here there are soft muted colours and the altar is highlighted with 3 spotlights (artificially)

 

The adjacent shot is very colour desaturated, and provides a very sombre mood which is appropriate to the Gothic cathedral.
