Interior of the Washington National Cathedral
The National Cathedral is the 6th largest cathedral in the world, and the 2nd largest cathedral in the United States. From end to end, it is 518 feet long. I took this Saturday while shooting with TPN members Roger Maki and Patrick Flynn. Taken with a Nikon D300, Nikon 17-35mm lens and a tripod. Processed with Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 3.

What a great day with you Walter and Roger too. I am surprised this building is only #6 - maybe we need to make a TPN pilgrimage to Westminster Abbey like we were discussing on Saturday??

If so I will buy you lunch ;-)

as a fan of architectural photography I really like the way you've managed to catch the size and structures. The depth of field allows one to look at and appreciate the entire cathedral, and the blur of the passers by adds to the shot..

Thanks Andrew. It was an 8 second exposure ISO 200 @ f/22. It is a magical place. I've been there 2 or 3 times in the 21 years I have lived in the DC area, but never taken my camera. We were stunned to learn that they allowed us to use our tripods as long as we didn't set them up in heavy foot traffic areas. They only ask for a $5 donation when you enter the church. We had a great time Saturday.

This place is amazing and what I love is that you and Roger posted in image representing the church in two different contexts....portrait vs. landscape.   This is a great case where I see the value in both as both have their strengths.   The floor to ceiling appeal really works well with Roger's image while yours really allowed the viewer to see the breadth of the place.   The colors here though are truly amazing and as I said in Roger's image, the banners along the side really add so much to the church.   Very effective display of glory! to join you all some day!

 I'm going to break with convention here and say that it's not a great photograph. It's well exposed but that doesn't make a great picture. Any basic camera can handle exposure automatically now. And as for the subject matter, that credit should go to the architect. It's a bog standard eye-line on tripod shot of a church interior. There are a million possible angles that would make us stop and take note, but the creative here seems limited to those involved with the building. Sorry!
