I've done some processing on that top photo. Bit of IR filter, bit of a contrast-boost, bit of levels hacking. Didn't need much, the cathedral is impressive enough on it's own...

monkey finger says:

yeah, i figured there was something other than a simple levels tweak...

still great though...

Lichfield? Doesn't sound very pleasant, does it, the field of the corpses..

Chris - yes, but much much bigger, and much more gothic. Cologne cathedral spire is topped only by the one in Ulm (and I've been up both of them)

Hehe - I was born in that field :D

Twice the size I've just read Mat. Bit big then.

It's one helluva walk up the cathedral huh? Because the stairs are so windy and tight (plus I was there in the summer during peak tourist season) I was well dizzy by the time I got the to top,

I love the dichotomy between the top two and the last one. And that top one ought to get highlighted. Just sayin'.

yup, it's still there. I've got a few shots from the workshop around the back too, where they make/repair the gargoyles and statues.
