Bonsoir Jack

This a nice interpretation for that cathedral. I used to do a lot of KODALITH years ago in the darkroom. It was an orthographic film reacting only to blue or whtie light, not to red and amber, se it could be processed visually Under safe light. Your result is very similar. Excellent work and TFS.


excellent prÚsentation...
digne d'un catalogue

Nice use of shadows! Gives a 3D feel. Well composed too :)

Hi Jack
The high contrast has resulted in a loss of detail but hat doesn't detract from the beauty of the photo.

Hello Jack, interesting treatment of this fine cathedral; the architecture is perfectly suited to the PP work.
Good work, tfs, regards Jean.

Boa tarde Jack,
Tense and dramatic, extraordinary image.
Great job.

Hi Jack...nice high contrast shot....well composed and interesting.


Ola Jack
Well done and impressive
Um abrašo

This invokes such a film noir feel but without the usual cliches of brick alleyways. I disagree that you've lost detail here, I think that the details that aren't hidden in shadows are what makes this pop. Truly one of my favourite photos I've stumbled upon in my short time here. Thanks and take care!
