Strictly speaking - this may be a DNMC as I fervently disagree with the concept of religion. But I do love medieval architecture...

Lots of post processing to bring the most out of this image. HDR, dodging, burning, and layer adjustment masks. The image looks a bit bright on one of my other monitors - hopefully that won't hurt this, as I am rather pleased with it.

Worcester Cathedral on a wet Sunday - went to visit and caught it just after the service complete with the smoke from the incense filling the room. Thanks to the tourist who stood in just the right place.

This image captures the striking power of religion in the historical and contemporary world.

I'm with you on the medieval architecture. Not a religious type but I oh so delight in visiting the churches around here. Reverent, beautful, and exquisitely rendered - a very nice photograph indeed.

Ooh, that standing figure gives this image that great spatial air. Congratulations on your 6th place.

It looks like a painting, fantastic composition. How did you get the model to be so tiny?

One of the better interior shots here. Effective use of scale and the composition feels good to me.

one of my favorites, The depth, perspective and detail are especially eye catching.

wonderfully unique perspective piece with lots and lots (and LOTS) of geometric details, perhaps too much (?)

this is a ver dramatic image. Reminds me how small we really are. Technically this is very sound with great composition and processing, the lighting is spot on. Would love to see the original. This is my favorite of the challenge. Wonderful job!

an amazing perspective ... the silhouette of the person, dwarfed in this huge structure is excellent .. he certainly makes your title more obvious and real .. the inward lean of the walls works so well .. =9

Wow...magnificent cathedral, and with the lens/angle you used it makes it appear even more immense. I love the muted tones throughout the photo.

The best one i've seen so far. No cheesy portraits, no flowers on a grave. I just wish the guy was doing something more interesting. Great shot though.
