Richness Of Glass Colours

It can be a trial to capture stained glass in churches. These windows can be found in Christ Church Cathedral.


The richness of the reds and purples particularly stand out.

  25. I like them. I find I have to underexpose to get all the colors but then the walls look black!

  26. Usually whenever I have attempted to capture the colors in a stained glass window, they have turned out either overexposed or too dark.
