Several beaut images here and well done with your perspective control
I am taken by the purple flashes in #2 ... don't know where they have come from , but they make a big difference to the final image

Cheers Phil, the purple is coming from a stained glass window out of shot just to the right. Other angles had multiple shades showing but were not quite as balanced in composition. Just added another shot where its colours obviously come from a stained glass window.

Nice shots, Ryan. I do like the effect of the light through the stained glass.
I've been there a couple of times - it's a very photogenic building, both inside and out.

#2 leads the eye well into the whole frame I think. Nice capture.
Thanks Marc:)

Cheers Gareth, it is a very cool building. Still have yet to do the tower tour but I bet there are some great potential shots from there too.
Great set Ryan although I think you are leaning slightly to the right in #2
Thanks Brian, think you might be right. Been tweaked now.

1, 2 and 4 work very well.

Three something is up. I suspect your level but not quite perpendicular to the window.
Thanks, I was set up square on a center stone so what you are seeing in #3 is the effect of soft fen soil being forced to hold up millions of tonnes of rock for 900 odd years. It becomes much more obvious when shooting from further away but the entire west tower seen from inside in this shot, leans quite a bit and actually lost an entire transept from this subsidence many years ago.

Not one i have been to but on my list, your images make me want to visit sooner rather than later. nice set showing off the lovely coloured stone and wonderful light, i am not a religious person but do appreciate the architecture of these type of buildings and being in the building game most of my working life i can really see the craftsmanship that went into them all those years ago.
