B&W conversion. the original colour version was far to flat and over exposed to use.
It's such a wonderful building it is difficult to understand the architects vision of how the building should be constructed and look without the use of modern day draughtsman's tools and instruments.

Maeluk, pajmcb have particularly liked this photo

this is fabulous... you've captured so much detail...
one of the problems with photographing this building is that it is so darned large...
try to fit it all in and there is oceans of space around it - needing a sky with lots of detailed cloud, this is never guaranteed in Britain... but you have managed to still portray the immense size without actually fitting it all in.. one can tell, from how it overlooks the other trees, that the tree is tall yet it is dwarfed to almost insignificance by the tower... brilliant...

Trees were a major problem here, I had a good view from the car park, but trees in the car park it's self were in the way, moved around the tree then it was lamp posts, moving closer then as you say you can't fit it all in. I get so annoyed wherever you go to any place with photographic interest there is always unrelated objects in the way. I do wish council planners would take this into consideration sometimes.

Magnificent. I agree with you about street furniture. And so many churches have let huge firs completely obscure magnificent architecture that is sometimes 500 years old or more. I'm sure that's not what the original architects would have planned!

It's a very long time since we have been to Ely Cathedral and your shot reminds me of its magnificence, Maurice. Well photographed and the mono conversion is an excellent choice here.
