Yippee Richard: one of the best pictures I've ever seen on Shutterchance - you've really captured the essence opf the place for me
Richard Trim: I find cloisters in Cathedrals the pinicle for me of any visit. Its the openess, the space, often the solitude, and having timme to reflect in a way that suits the individual without any heavy influences. I love the characteristic arched walkways and the simplicity of window carving and building styles. For me it is one that I'm certainly pleased to have been in the place at the right time for (the position of the sunlight). Many thanks Chris. richard

Lots of great stuff in this shot: the details in the arches, the shadows and streaks of light, and person at the very end of the hall, the slightly off center angle you shot it from, and the mottled bricks.
Richard Trim: In fact it was a rushed shot .. We had turned a corner and I instinctively knew that the disappearing figure was essential. Many thanks Jewlya. richard
Great long perspective and interesting light!
Richard Trim: The light was a total dream Martin. richard

This is great photography. It has everything. A sense of atmosphere, crisp detail, good texture, and fabulous light (especially those diagonal shafts of light hitting the floor). Truly wonderful. (:o)
Richard Trim: Many thanks Roz. I've alway wanted to get images that include shafts of light. The famous image of Grand Central Station NY ( which you might know of ) has been an inspiration for me. richard

Great treatment here Richard. Love the composition - the open door and figure at the end draws your eye right in.

This brings back memories of my visit there two years ago. Great place and i like the strong shadows in this image, Richard.
Richard Trim: Chad I think you live somewhere in the West country ... How does it compare with Wells Cathedral? richard
You were right - this is exactly my cuppa tea! Wonderful , the shadows, the light the detail, the perspective, the figure - did I say I like it? ;o)
Richard Trim: Yes you projected the positive vibes Mike. cheers richard

This is a money shot . Excellent
Richard Trim: Heck Shakara! i never thought of that. richard
wow, this is amazing.
Richard Trim: Good to get a ''wow'' from you Gishan. ;-) richard
Almost speechless. This is a fantastic shot - the architecture, the lighting, the DOF -- everything. Wonderful photo!
Richard Trim: In spite of you being speechless martie, your words are most appreciated. richard
I love these sort of shots Richard, and this is a good one. Loads of detail in the shadow areas, and the sunbeams add that little bit eaxtra. Good job there was somebody in the doorway to complete the composition.
Richard Trim: Brian, I think the sunbeams actually add a lot more than just a little bit extra. Cheers richard

superb image Richard, love the streaks of light and the conversion. Just out of curiosity what the .ell are those new steps apparently going no where doing there?
Richard Trim: Tim, I have no idea what they are for ... bit of a shame really.richard
The arches, sunlight streaming through and the color tone combine to make this a great picture.
Richard Trim: You are absolutely right Helen. richard
