Hereford Cathedral 2
Here is another offering from my day trip to Hereford, the Cathedral from the outside. Had to go inside for a while because of the rain, then it stopped but it was still very dull. As usual not a straightforward photo because of space restrictions i.e. the surrounding railings and buildings. So a six image portrait stitch, I braced my camera against the railings and rotated trying to keep things steady. The software seems to have made a pretty good job with the joins, and this view was chosen because of scaffolding around to the side. I am not entirely happy with the edit but as said the light was really poor, but would appreciate any thoughts by members.

Considering this is a stitch up it's might good Jeffrey, I would never have guessed.
I dragged it into Lightroom which has an auto perspective function and it did correct it, but not a lot, so I wouldn't worry in that department.
I did though give it some brightness/contrast/clarity adjustment and it did bring it to life, it is a tad flat.
Other than that it's a smashing shot, you've done the Cathedral proud, very well done.

Considering the conditions the shot has come out very well, well seen and taken

6 picture stitching... i would be happy with the stitch. I have to agree it's a little flat but i think with a bit of lighting adjustment and maybe a little HDR it would come alive. Once crisped up you may need to remove the red pipework on the right wing of the building as my eye kept being drawn to it. Brill stitch... and well shot in poor conditions

A super shot jeffrey, gosh 6 picture stitching, & you get this shot of this beautiful Cathedral. You have captured loads of gorgeous details on the building. As George has mentioned a bit more brightness contrast etc, & the shot will be even better. Well done

Great work with the stitching Jeffrey, A lovely image of the cathedral and some good tips above to lift the lighting a touch, which I think would make this an excellent image.
The composition is very good but I would be tempted to clone out the two and a half GU in the bottom left.

That's very impressive. No clue that this was a stitch so an excellent capture and some clever editing. I'd leave the people in; they are not intrusive and help give this its sale; it really towers over the surroundings.
