    Hi All

    Was lucky enough to have visited Vienna over the last few days and spent some time on one evening in the center of the city with my camera, and also for another 20 mins or so on the morning I departed for the airport en route home.

    Here's a few of my favorite images from the trip. I haven't processed many more of them yet, but on the plane home I picked out a few of my fav's to process while in the air. Hope you enjoy... C&C welcome folks.

    #1: Bible


    #2: Vienna Church aisles


    #3: Vienna Church Aisles - HDR'ed effect using Lightroom ONLY


    #4: Vienna Cathedral from outside

    I think the pattern on the roof of the Cathedral is just stunning - first and only time I've been, just couldn't stop looking up at it. If you every visit just be careful you don't walk into any of the tourists all stood looking up at this roof, wonderful.

    What a fantastic building, and what FABULOUS photos! :clap:

    You should see if the authorities there want to buy them for postcard material!

    I've not been there yet - but want to go now!

    Very beautiful pictures, John.
    We are going to Vienna with our youth band in July. I can't wait to see the building for real now ;)

    Many thanks all.

    Shot # of the cathedral and roof was taken at a very high ISO1600, and was handheld at 1/5th of a second. As such it does contain some noise typical of high ISO images. I didn't post process these images, perhaps I should post shot #4 again but with the noise reduction applied and see what you think. Gimme 5 mins...

    Cracking John, the cathedral against the sky is awsome!

    Must be some job youve got, seeing the world and having enough time to produce pics like these!!

    Think I prefer the 1st version John!

    A fantastic example of Gothic architecture, the 3 Nave Choir in particular and so beautifully captured as well!

    yeah, i think so too. Maybe it's got more atmosphere, a bit less perfect perhaps :)

    It works, I can't hear a thing! :tongue:

    I like number three best - amazing colours, particularly up towards the roof.
