The inner courtyard of Canterbury Cathedral. Canterbury is a very English town, full of charm and character. In the town itself, there are lots of houses with a very unique cottage-like architecture. Some are very old and beginning to sag or their walls are slanted, but it all adds to the atmosphere of the place. The Cathedral itself is probably the biggest attraction there - it's the equivalent of the Catholict's Vatican for the Anglicans.
This scene is my first attempt at HDR (high dynamic range). It allows the details in areas that are usually very dark to be brightened and brought out. At the same time, the very bright areas are darkened instead of being blown out. The result is a picture that looks a bit fake, more like a painting than anything else. I'm not sure why, but there's a slight "halo" around the building as well - the sky is a bit brighter around it's outline.
What do you think? Like it or hate it, let me know!
