Looks like a fine old church, quite a large one too, and a flying buttress just for good measure.
Really comes to life when expanded, with lots of fine detail to be picked out, and just the last remnants of the setting sun to be seen, very nice.
I Googled this one at street level to have a look around, not sure if I have seen a picture of this church somewhere before though.
Just one niggle though, the foreground centre headstone has a bright lower case "r" on it's L.H. side, once seen and all that. Should the cranes stay? I don't know. However a well taken and edited image George well done.

Looks to be a fine building and made even better by the lighting. both natural and artificial. I like the sky very much from the clouds floating above the church to the gold colours low down on the horizon. I'm puzzled by the gravestone on the far right; it almost looks like it is lit. The trouble is, I can't stop looking at it now and it drags my eye to it each time. Those cranes have to go I'm afraid

It's wonderful George. Love the 'sunny' lights at the side that are (switched?)-on at the same time the sun is actually going down at the back.. makes you look closely at it and wonder what is going on! Makes it also look very see-through and fragile. Reading a medieval romance at the mo so this pulls me in. Love it!

Nice image with lots of impact but its spoiled for me by the ghosting around the top of the building which I think is from to much sharpening and enhancement of the image.
But a very good composition.

The lighting is still strong enough to give good detail in the stonework in the church, good foregroung interest in the gravestones but the cranes are a bit of a distraction.

A good shot George of this lovely church. The sun setting has brought out some really nice details on the stonework & the contrasting colours where the lights are showing up on it.
