Impressive use of the lighting, Ellie.
my first instinct is that i don't know whether to pray or stay away. i love that this image asks that question.

I'd be very tempted to show this without a border, Ellie. It might look even more 3-D than ever!

You're right Ellie: I wonder how you achieved that?
I like floodlit buildings, always rather haunting.
There is a touch of the 3D, reminds me of those plastic things you used to get in cornflakes and when you waggled them about the picture changed

I think the 3d effect is caused by the recession of the cooler colour. A realist painter's trick to give paintings depth.
nice nice, it's the dhadows showing the stonework, but then you know that.

The lighting brings a real sense of mystery to the architecture.

I agree with anniedog -a beautiful photo of a gorgeous church (I remember)!
Very nicely lit!!
Excellent shot Ellie, yes I do see the effect you mention.
Tried moving around, EJ, but nothing happened smile Still - it's a good image!
The lighting gives lovely detail in the tower smile
Very impressive Ellie..Well done.

Yes, I see what you mean, Ellie. Bill's description suits it well. I like the lighting.
This tower is very elegant proportions very well your picture shows.
lovely image Ellie, great light
A fine capture Ellie but if you did away with the border is would merge completely with the background and perhaps be even more effective.
Definitely a 3D quality in it Ellie! Well done.

Great shot - love the lighting and how the top seems to almost fade into the blackness!
The light is perfect, especially for a picture like that is really not easy. A+ VAL smile

Hmmm!

If this is Christ's Church then whose are all the others...
I find this mysterious in an intersting way...I think it's because of the total blackness around the church....
Very inviting! Lovely captured!
Sorry for the delay, happy year for you and yours!.

I can not see the 3D effect ¿?

So what were you doing there? Took someone to Oxford?
I like Ginnie's suggestion and think it will work. You can still switch the border off - same place as in my last mail.
Beautiful lighting Ellie
