Thank you, Bob! This is a very impressive Cathedral to say the least.

I like the first shot, and I notice there are no pews... is there a reason for that? I'm intrigued. And I'd like to see a colour version!

Hi Gerafix, considering thatthis is such a traditional Cathedral, I'm not sure why the pews have been replaced by chairs. Perhaps someone local have the explanation.

Here's the original version of the picture.

I, too, like the first shot as well as the color original. The architecture and geometry are phenominal!

The outside shot of the cathedral is impressive but the distortion is more than I would like to see. I think attempts to fix this in a good editor would result in a picture that shows the cathedral as very tall and skinny.

I think the only way to successfully reduce the perspective distortion, is to shoot from a position more centered on the structure. However, it appears that a tree might prevent that possibility. This is one of those situations where you do your best and be happy with what you get.

Thank you both, mcliu and Carl for your comments. Yes, I totally agree with you about the distortion, Carl. The R1 has a wonderful lens with great WA coverage but in scenes like this the distortion produced by the lens is significant. But at least I can have an image that gives an idea of the grandiosity of the architecture. The problem in this case is aggravated by the fact that I could not move further back (which would have helped reduce the distortion)due to the castle wall being right behind me.

Well, you need to put on your Spidey suit and climb that castle wall. :lol::lol:

BTW, it's Cal, not Carl, a common mistake. My login is calr which is for Cal Rasmussen.
