Chichester Cathedral Cloisters in Mono

Chichester Cathedral Cloisters in Mono

The present building of Chichester Cathedral dates back to 1108. The Spire and 2 towers have had a chequered history due to subsidence. One of the Towers and the Spire have collapsed and been rebuilt over the centuries. The Cloisters were built in the 15th Century.

When I was on the way to take pictures of Cycle Racing at Goodwood I stopped off at the Cathedral to take some pictures of the Cloisters. This shot was taken at 5.35 and as the Cathedral closes at 6.00 there were far less people around than usual. It is also the only part of the Cathedral where you can get a Tripod out without objection. The picture was taken with a tripod with a Sony A700 with a Sigma 10-20 wide angle zoom at 10 mm. I I took 3 shots for HDR processed in Photomatix using detail enhancer. I copied the minus 2 image in as a new layer and used a layer mask to apply that only to bring down highlights. Further processing using Topaz Clarity and the mono conversion with Topaz B&W Effects. .
