photoblog image Pimped Minster

Pimped Minster

Thank you once again for the previous comments, it's really appreciated, especially the funny ones!

Up till now, I have posted up to date images but as I'm having a York week, I thought that I would post this image that was taken almost a year ago today. York had a 2 week festival of light which ended with an illumination of the Minster by Patrice Warrener (Who did all the Jean Michelle Jarre stuff). I have no idea how it was done but the light that you see was projected by two huge light boxes, situated 35 meters away.

When I processed this image all that I did was to add a little USM, so I thought that I would go back and leave the USM out! Therefore the image that you see has had no post processing at all other than conversion to fit on this site.

All the best Mal

wow that is mighty purdy. It is amazing to see such a diversity of light and no a spec of digital enhancing. I particulary like your framing here. Very cool mal.

Lovely colours Mal. And no pp, thats impressive smile You should dig into your archives more often hmm..
Blimey Mal, that's gorgeous. Being able to look at images such as this is a priviledge. Go get some sleep and get rid of that cold, and remember my advice about the hot toddies....
Mal: I liked your idea of the Toddies wink Mal

Wow! It's gorgeous, it must have been wonderful to see
hey mal,

this is a brilliant photo, and i love it even more b/c there was no pping on this. not only are the colors magnificent, but the perspective is great. i love the way the perspective draws the viewer's eyes upward. really great. hope you are feeling better!
Mal: There is less snot on the keyboard today Nicole :0
wow! awesome shot mal. i love the angle you went with. you really captured the detail of this magnificant piece of architecture. the lighting and contrast is fantastic!
you know what... it almost lools like one of these beautiful juke-boxes... "grin"...
Mal: I had not noticed that and your right, now where do I put my euro? wink Mal
I love the color gradient in this picture...rock on Mal!

The perspective makes this place look massive! (Maybe it is? haha) Anyway, the colours look great, especially for un-photoshopped and the symmetry is a nice touch.

Thanks for the comment on my blog, appreciate that.
awesome colours in this image! an impressive building indeed smile
Woaw, what awesome colours!!

Oh i love the colours, looks like a shot from a cartoon. I also like the framing.
This is absolutely great, beats Blackpool illuminations hands down! My daughter went to Uni in York and I spent many a happy hour photographing the Minster from all manner of angles. I have said it before about you images but I will say it again. A much photographed location but probably one of the best shots of York Minster that I have seen.

It's beautiful building and the colours make a welcome change to standard shots. Very nicely composed with the looming towers.

p.s. any tips on photolocations? I may still go for a wander on Sat afternoon
Mal: Bring back Nasty Simon wink

I'm not the best expert for that location Simon but I recon the Dock area would be good, let me make some enquiries. Mal
i wish more buildings were perpetually colourful. preferrably via some kind of solar powered source.

ages and ages ago in the west end of london there used to be a building that was constantly, but gently, changing colour as you walked by.
Mal: What was making the colours change Russell? Was the building lit by external artificial lights?

Great work, Mal. The best shots are the ones that require the least amount of post-processing. Although I haven't done any lately, I'm a huge fan of architectural photography. Compositionally, this image works because its symmetry is complementory to the Minster's design.

On a side note, this particular facade reminds me Krusty the Clown; The colors just seem to scream out obscenities. hahaha.. I love it. Well done.

Cheers,
