View large on black please!

 

Ljubljana is a very small city and, much like Zagreb, doesn't take long to explore. Also like Zagreb it is full of churches. And like in Croatia, in Slovenia they don't mind you taking photographs, even with a tripod. They frown on flash photography, but as I don't have a flash, that doesn't bother me.

 

I was wandering around inside the Cathedral of St. Nicholas trying to find some good compositions when I spotted this woman sitting alone at the back. I cranked up the ISO slightly and got a few shots of her solemnly sitting there. I quite like the simplicity of a lone figure sitting there juxtaposed against such an ornate surrounding.

 

This really does need to be seen larger, as it takes on a completely different feel.

 

I forgot to say, my photostream passed 500,000 views the other day, so thank you so much! That's 250,000 views in two months.
