Beautiful church just off the Magnificent Mile. Virtually deserted when I was there in the middle of the day.

SL1 with Sigma 18-35 f1.8

Thanks. That Sigma 18-35 is really an amazing little lens.

I tend to do that a lot. I'll be just a hair to the right or left of center and not notice until post processing. Many of my church shots are the same. Maybe I should put a sticky note on the back of my camera. ;-)a:lol:

Sometimes I think perfection seems mechanical and a little imperfection adds humanity.

I think it looks really sharp and nice. But like the others said, I would get in the middle or move over to either side to get a different perspective.

Beautiful light and colors in this cathedral.
Some people state symmetry is boring...I know for sure it's not always that easy to achieve it.

You can use the grid overlay on the liveview mode to help out with being centered.

I agree. I used to be anal about perfect composition, but realized that it's not always practical to chase that perfectly composed shot, and sometimes the imperfect ones add a natural, realistic element to the art.

Pseudo-HDR. One shot, three levels of exposure, -2, 0, +2 EV in ACR. Then run through SNS-HDR Lite, then massaged in Photoshop.

And I tend to not worry about perfect symmetry unless that's the point of the image.
