I love the balance of dark and light. Lovely shot.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Michael.

Perhaps so, Ginnie...but the gloom has given you an interesting lighting impact.
Ginnie Hart: It seemed perfect for Chad's Black Monday, Ray. smile Thanks.
You took a shot I think I would've thought too dark to amount to anything - and have made it truly something... with the little bits of light and color!
Ginnie Hart: I always take these shots, Elizabeth, hoping I can make something out of them, knowing I'll probably never have the chance again. So, thank you.
Perfect lighting!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Robin. I was glad it turned out okay.

C'est trop sombre pour moi, je ne serais pas tranquille.
Ginnie Hart: It's definitely too dark for much of anything, Martine.

OMG - get the tone mapper out!
Ginnie Hart: But, Chris, then I couldn't use it for Chad's Black Monday!

If you can find the switch?? Wonderful point of view and this is exactly how it was. Perfect picture for Black Monday.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Astrid. Next time we'll look for the switch!

Oh yes this is superb Ginnie. Perhaps this is Almost Black Monday.
Ginnie Hart: Chris wanted me to tone-map it, Chad, but didn't understand I created this in deference to you! smile

Better with the lights off, Ginnie - this really captures the feel of an ancient English Church
Ginnie Hart: Thanks for your vote of confidence, Lisl. smile

Oh, I love this spiritual atmosphere! A wonderful image!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Philine. I showed this today in deference to Chad's Black Monday.

No; our eyes will soon adjust and we can appreciate the natural beauty and colours.
Ginnie Hart: Well, then. Seeing it like it truly is, Alan! I like that.
The light in churches can be magical Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Yes, indeed so, Bill.

definitely, like a candle or sumfin' smile lovely church... i wonder if i should start going to church? hmmm?
Ginnie Hart: We often visit these churches during the week, Elaine, when there are no services but the churches are still open. It's a conservation of energy to keep the lights off, I'm sure. I'm just glad they're still open!
Non pas vraiment ..l'ambiance pour se recueuillir est parfaite (enfin pour moi ..)
Ginnie Hart: Good, Claudine! Merci.

On first view, I thought it is the interior of some pub or restaurant. It thought the red carpet is the top of a long table and the pew ends are the backs of chairs. Etc. Then I saw it is the Eval church in Cornwall. You had me in the dark for a few moments.
Ginnie Hart: HA! Well, then, Louis...definitely time to turn the light on! smile
There certainly wasn't much light in this little church to work with, I like the way you have handled it to make a good picture, the judges at my club would hate it!!!
Ginnie Hart: And top think this was all a tip of the hat to Chad. smile
Wow! Nice capture Ginnie... smile
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Sudipto.
Black Monday? Ha ha... It's St Eval not Evil you know, G?!

But where are you church cushions?
Is there anything that you don't collect? G! wink
Ginnie Hart: This Black Monday is for one of our members who loves Black Monday for some reason. No Evil allowed, I hope! But yes, I know about me and collections. You should have seen me in my past life. I now collect only things that take up very little room (like on a hard drive). smile
Perfect Light shot Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Roland. The darkness cannot extinguish the light!
In Shropshire the lights did come out today. The sun decided to put its hat on and come out to play smile

PS: Love your photo smile
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Cherry. We, too, have had sun for a few days but today it's supposed to rain again. Lucky for me that I LOVE when it rains here!
it really looks like light at the end of a tunnel, which is a reassuring metaphor in some sense, Ginnie. i like your creation here.
Ginnie Hart: You always have an appropriate thing to say, Ayush, which is so refreshing about your comments. Thank you.

Beautiful dramatic light that fills this chapel and bathes the walls.
Ginnie Hart: It surprises me how dark these churches are on off days, Steven, but at least are still open. We don't turn the lights on, wanting to conserve energy. But you sure see them in a different way, don't you. Thank you.
Or boost the shadows in Lightroom smile
Ginnie Hart: This was a deliberate tip of the hat to Chad and his Black Monday posts, Tom. But yes, it's always nice to know we can "turn the lights on" with our tools!
What a nice contrast and it creates this sombre atmosphere or kindof gothic even smile
Ginnie Hart: It does capture an atmosphere we don't normally see on Sunday, for sure, Charles.
