Alex...your images are all so "WOW" in my book! I was told early on at BP that WINNING images HAVE to have the WOW factor. Yours sure do and this one is no exception!!!

I like the over and under tones of pastel I see in your gallery. Soothing to look at. Truly a certain peacefulness visiting you!

Hi Laura, thank you for such generous comments! It's not easy to have Wow factors in photos but if my photos have them, that maybe because I'm wowed by the subjects I photograph. Thank you for viewing my gallery always!!! #8572288

Very belated congratulations on this gorgeous winner! I've always liked Grace Cathedral's "unfinished" look, particularly in the vaulting ribs. #9734563

Alex T. Mizuno 10/15/2011 4:34:26 PM

Thank you Chris! You must have a beautiful shot of this cathedral too. #9737368

Resubmission. Adjusted level slightly and cleaned noise.
Normally, this cathedral is crowded with tourists. To have this place for yourself with nobody around, you have to be here early in the morning, especially if your intention is to capture the grandeur of the structure with a wide angle lens bracketing for several different exposures.

Photographed at Grace Cathedral in San Francisco.

HDR from five different exposures. ISO:100, F11, SS: 13"~0.8", FL12mm
