What a beautiful image, Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Elizabeth.
I like the forrest of columns effect in the image.
Ginnie Hart: I should have titled this "Can't see the forest for the trees!" smile
nice perspective on this one. i remember this place and it was not deserted as in this picture.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Ayush. We were there on a Tuesday after lunch in October...not too crowded at all!

Cathedral architecture as I have never seen it, Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: It does feel different from what I have seen here in Europe, Lisl, for sure!

This is good stuff Ginnie, the new camera copes brilliantly with everything
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Chris. So far so good. I'm still trying to figure out all the stops and whistles. smile

Absolute fabulous B&W, love the grey tones. It shows how much light is in the Cathedral.
I am happy for you with your new camera, good performance (of the both of you wink)
Ginnie Hart: Hartstikke bedankt, MLMA. This cathedral was a huge surprise to me. I'm glad my little camera did it justice.

Like wandering through a forest Ginnie, searching for the truth.
Ginnie Hart: Makes a lot of sense to me, Chad!

A cracking shot, Ginnie. I like the recession of the rounded bits on the pews and well done on getting the verticals vertical; not easy!
Ginnie Hart: I didn't really have to do anything on the verticals, Alan. All done by this little point-n-shoot. Still checking out all its stops and whistles. Thank you.
Splendid!

Are those real marble columns or painted columns?

How many states did you guys visited?
Ginnie Hart: Do you know, LC, I never once checked out those columns to see if they were real or painted. I can't believe that! Hmmmm. I'll have to ask Astrid later.

We landed in NYC and stayed there for 5 days and then flew to Georgia...so only TWO states this trip!

The marble on the columns stands out well. Such gorgeous scroll work on the wall! The camera is working a charm.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Mary. Yes. I must say I am very pleased thus far! smile
Le choix du noir et blanc est parfait et bien dosé. J'aime beaucoup les cathédrales ou les églises en version monochrome
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, dear Marie. And this is with my new point-n-shoot camera (with the 24-1200mm range!).
A lovely shot, Ginnie. So many things to look at. I'm amazed to see a Celtic cross in amongst it all.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Pauline. I'm still trying to figure out why the celtic cross is there...except for the fact that there is/was a real Irish settlement there in its day, I guess?!
Majestic and beautiful Ginnie. Nice details
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Janet.

Just beautiful details! I agree with Astrid that the gray tones are lovely.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Sister. You'd be quite enthralled by this cathedral.

Really wonderful detail.
Ginnie Hart: Many thanks, Bonnie.
Your new PowerShot camera is a gem if it can produce tones as beautiful as what we see here, Ginnie. Of course, needless to say, some of the credit should go to the photographer, too. smile
Ginnie Hart: You're most kind, Beverly. I'll take some credit but most of it goes to this little "gem," as you put it. smile
What a grand looking building and so well photographed on your new toy.
Ginnie Hart: Many thanks, Brian. I am really liking this new toy.

I love the pillars that we found so much in Medieval Cathedrals ... Yet I found that these particular versions don't quite hit the spot. Perhaps the youthfulness of their age (1700) has something to do with it.
Ginnie Hart: As we all know, Richard, youth can leave a lot to be desired. Still, by American standards, this is pretty impressive. Trust me. smile
This is a superb image taken with your new toy Ginnie... the details are wonderful... and your treatment is one of the best....petersmile
Ginnie Hart: You're most kind, Peter. Thank you. I've had lots of fun playing around. smile
Very nicely rendered detail Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, John...and with the new camera (thanks to you). I'm still trying to see what it can do.
A most impressive image with these columns and this light Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: Many thanks, Richard.
The superb lighting wow and those
columns - wow again.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Martin. It did have a lot of columns!!!

This is a magnificent photograph- and what for a gorgeous church! Your camera is a magic wand and you are the magician!
Ginnie Hart: Your flattery will get you everywhere, Philine. HA! Thank you. And yes, I was pleasantly surprised by the beauty of this American cathedral.
How beautiful. You shot and the building. What intricate work.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, kind sir.
A great image Ginnie, I'm enjoying all the lines! The camera must be bringing you some fun smile
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Martin. I'm like a little kid in the candy shop with this camera, truth be told. smile Still finding out what it can do.

Stunningly beautiful smile
Ginnie Hart: I thought so, too, Cherry, especially for an American cathedral.
the detail...the tones...stunning!
Ginnie Hart: I was delighted, Robin, especially after seeing so many European cathedrals so much older. It surprised me, to be honest!

Wow - a very striking image. I love the spiritual architectural bling!
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, George. For an American cathedral, it's quite impressive, I must say!
