[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Shot inside the Sacred Heart Parish in Sydney, Nova Scotia last year. The light flowing through the stained glass window only lit specific areas of the pews and fell off very quickly. I wanted to illustrate the nature of the lighting so I converted this shot to black & white. I have a color version you can see when you click here, if you are interested.

Have a great Sunday!

Hey!! Good to see you Reed! I see you were back to Canada again. Which province will you visit this summer?
Love this photo. Love the light on the tops of the pew backs, and the shine on the seats. Simple, but so effective.
Hope all is well, and that you're still enjoying retirement :) Cheers my friend
(love the color version too, with the warm colors!)

Hi Reed,

I love the mood in this shot, the light and shadows are excellent. I have looked at the colour shot which is a lovely composition but as far as mood and atmosphere is concerned, the B/W is the one I prefer.



Hello Rad

Like the view. Awesome sharpness and POV. The use of the light is what attracted me to the image. Nice work.


Hi Reed,

i adore this kind of photography and i believe you were able to illustrate what you wished.Good the PP that emphasizes the details- of the stained glass window, for instance- in a very clean way.A pleasant compositional effect anyway beautiful in colour too.



Hi Reed. Nice range of tones in this black and white shot. Well done.

Great shot Reed. Wonderful lighting, detail and depth. Beautiful composition. Well done. TFS, Lori

This is super nice Reed! I love the high contrast for this, the light relfected off the tops of the pews is really nice and leads your eyes right to the light in the window! I'll bet the color version was just as nice!
