  1. Was it built like that, or did it used to be a Cathedral? 🙂


  2. Hi Bob
    Many thanks for your comment. As far as I know it was built this way by the Victorians. It’s a fascinating place if you are into big machines.
    I should have used an HDR technique on this photo to avoid burning out the light bulb and the windows while preserving the details in the darker areas.

  3. I like a bit of burn-out where appropriate – The bulbs and window are OK for me!

  4. You and me both, but I entered this photo into a competition and the judge commented on the burn-out! But what do judges really know? 🙂

  5. Same as the rest of us – They know what THEY like!


  6. … and I take photos for me or my clients, not for judges!
