Interior of the western side of Lincoln Cathedral
Nice shot, is it usual to see the cathedral with no chairs etc in the nave?
Well spotted, it is usually full of chairs. The Cathedral was open as part of the "Discover Lincolnshire Weekend" so the usual entry fee was waived. Perhaps the chairs were stored away to make way for the hordes! Apart from the experience of extra space, we were also treated to lovely coloured pools of light on the floor as the sun streamed through the stained glass windows.
As already commented on by Deb, amazing to see a nave devoid of chairs. If my history serves me well, they never had seating for the congregation in the early years, so this is very much how it would have been seen. The vaulting is magnificent. I also like the way your exposure has added some movement of the people.
The exposure was 1/8 sec, hence the motion blur. I was quite pleased with the shot as it was hand held (amazing what these image stabilisers can do!)
I love the sense of how huge it is, all those tiny people walking around, it really is an amazing image!
Oh and btw, I love Picassa, although most people I know think it's horrific, I find it really easy to use.
