Notre-Dame du Finistère: Window

Posted by
MadScientist (Düsseldorf, Germany) on 22 August 2010 in Art & Design.

One of Finistère's beautiful stained glass windows (1853-1870, de Pluys and Richard Berns). Unfortunately not all of them were in a good condition like this one.

@Ted: Many thanks, Ted! It's not as difficult as it seems! (ISO 800, f5.6, ca. 40mm, just try)

You really have become the master of photographing these windows - I do not remember ever seeing such perfect presentation of the details as you have here. All so natural.

@Ronnie 2¢: Like with the ceiling shots, it's not so difficult once you've gotten it: (not so) high ISO, f5.6, short exposure will give good results.

Crikey the exposure is near perfect, so good you could eat it!
