The High Altar and the Inner Cloister of Notre Dame

    Newer Older

    This is one place they do not like you to use a tripod -- inside Notre Dame. I stuffed it down beside my leg inside my overcoat and acted like an invalid, limping in to pray to the pantheon of saints. Once inside, I dropped the rouse and extended the tripod like a transformer and shot away. I got off enough right before they told me to stop in rather polite French.

      Not sure I have to congratulate you for being so naughty or for being so persistent. Any how, the result is very nice.

      Absolutely great. I love this atmospheric processing... are you applying a texture to get this HDR effect?

      did you manage a 3 shot HDR or did you only have time for the single shot?
      I got asked to leave Girona Cathedral for the tripod. Going to make a bean bag to place the camera on to get the steady shot.

      That will confound them....

      My laptop monitor isn't good enough to show all the sumptuous detail! I really like the streak of light going across the centre. Super.
