Salisbury Cathedral

A busy Sunday for the group of us, which included myself, Jena and Natalia. We journeyed to Salisbury to see its famous cathedral, but also found a National Trust property close by. And later in the afternoon we had a ton of fun posing in the cockpits of fighter jets at an aviation museum. Those shots will be coming soon.The cathedral reminds me a great deal of Lincoln Cathedral in its layout and features, although it is slightly smaller. However, Salisbury Cathedral has the distinction of housing one of the four remaining copies of the Magna Carta, one of the most important documents in the history of human civilisation, outlining for the first time many of our basic rights and freedoms.Again, the cathedral was a trove of geometry, architectural lines, framing and lighting, and I have rendered many of the shots in B+W to more starkly reveal the architectural splendour. These were all taken with the Olympus EM-5 and the 12-40mm F/2.8. I hope you enjoy them.

Beautiful and artistic shots of a great cathedral. I have tried to photograph several cathedrals where I live and my go to lens is a Nikon 24 to 120 f4. But your second shot looks like you are shooting straight up but are still getting so much detail as if you were farther away and using a telephoto. Please, if you don't mind, give a couple of details as to how you took this shot.

Hi Gordon, thank you. I used my EM5 and 12-40mm F/2.8 at around F/14 for that shot. The narrow aperture not only gives me more depth of field, but also gives the star-burst effect from the sun, which is what I was aiming for. :)
Note that m4/3 sensors have a narrower DOF for any given aperture anyway, owing to a smaller sensor than FF or APS-C sensors.
Hope this helps :)
