Nicely done. Very nice exposures.


A skill is developed through constant practice with a passion to improve, not bought.

Thanks Glad you like it. I prefer a "lighter" image with good shadow detail, and not generally trying to avoid the clipping warnings showing on the LR histograms. This holds the contrast down a little too, which seems to be not so popular with others. A white subject in a building that looks a bit like you are in a large white tent (but with fully opaque side walls) a row of skylights running the length of the centre of the hall, and with that big translucent wall on the end made for some interesting lighting. I only found out flash was allowed when I got to the next hall.
