Well, now that my last image is featured art @ Redbubble.com - i've felt the pressure all morning to post something that could follow it fairly comfortably. I've struggled to process all the shots I took in St. Peters and i'm not really sure why. I shot several images in there on multiple exposures to be converted to HDR, but none of them have come out how I imagined. This one I settled on for composition, but I struggled with creating something special with the original image - so in the end I settled for very little processing at all, and leaving the architecture to speak for itself.

I really was amazed at the size and beauty of St. Peters - a very impressive place, and definately somewhere I would recommend everyone visiting, whether you're religious or not.

  • Great shot again. No processing required.

    Did you use a tripod for this? It looks very sharp for 1/20sec exposure - or you have steadier hands than me! ;-)

  • Thanks Phil - and I think its steady hands as no I didn't have a tripod ;) I was shooting at 17mm though - and the rule of thumb is a minimum shutterspeed equal to that of your focal length, so I think it was just on the edge ;)

    Thanks too Gaz!

  • Amazing shot. I like how the light is filtering through the top
