Taken some while ago this is not of the first quality, technically,( the high ISO and long exposure of the hand held compact did me no favours ), but in browsing some old photographs this evening came across it again and remembered how much I liked it.
So I give it to you !
This is a picture of the interior of Salisbury Cathedral, and shows some of the nave and chancel, the rest showing in the reflections of a highly unusual font. I attach other images of the font in WS
to give you a better idea of the whole item.

Knowing what I now know, thanks TE, equipped as I now am, thanks Mr Canon, I would like to return to Salisbury to try this shot again. Hopefully on any future occasion the scaffolding erected to aid its restoration may have been removed, so I can take some pictures of its exterior too. It is a extraordinarily beau - tiful building.

I think it is a superb shot in my favorite of all British Cathedrals, giving the edifice an extra dimension.

Very good idea and very good realization, an original point of view, really creative to capture this wonderful interior...Clever and very original...

Desde luego la foto es cuanto menos curiosa, buena perspectiva y muy buen colorido.
Un saludo desde España:

This is a striking and very impessive photograph taken with your old (? now deceased) compact camera and if this (and your workshop pictures) is anything to go by, I'm sure you could produce some absolutely wonderful photographs with your DSLR and a tripod!
A wonderfully symmetrical composition with perfect exposure and beautiful colours. O.K., there's some noise due to the small sensor and high ISO but it's pin-sharp and the details are good. Just think what you could achieve with your 5 Mk2!
I've looked at the Salisbury Cathedral website and it would appear that they are quite accommodating to photographers so they would probably allow tripods too - a real bonus in places such as this.
I really love photographs of the interiors of our beautiful churches and cathedrals and this has whetted my appetite to seek out some more!

An extraordinary image captured with your old camera and the problems that you mention with high iso etc are only obvious after looking closer. I do hope that you try this with your new equipment.
Clever work Martin!
Best wishes to you all,

a sumptuous image, with amazing colours, light and detail. The composition is sublime with a beautiful depth to the reflection. Original and creative work.
Enjoy your Sunday - Brian.

Hi dear CCL
Now it's my turn to say Yee Ha! What a great photo. it took me ages to work out exactly what I was looking at and in the end just had to confirm I wasn't hallucinating by reading your fascinating note. can't believe you've been keeping this one from us for so lomg, it's superb. The POV is what makes it so unusual, and of course those beautifully rendered reflections. Stunning colours, light management and symmetry. A kick-a*s shot, as the Yanks would say. Congratulations!
ll the best to you and the CC

Hi Martin, What a great use of the water, I could not quite understand how you had managed to shoot this, but the workshop reveals all, a superb piece of work, kind regards Wilson.

I learned a lot by reading this - nicely done. The bits of vivid blue everywhere helps tie it all together.

Great framing and composition! Love those reflections! The thumbnail is very attractive, the photo looks even great when clicked! Great shot!
