Cathedral View

This image was taken on the same morning as my Jackson Square post which you can see here. That’s St. Louis Cathedral on the left.

  1. Wonderful processing on this fine shot, Edith. Love the architectural style of St. Louis Cathedral. It simply looks like it’s been there for a very long time, although well maintained.

    Great B&W, Edith! Wonderful processing to bring out the shine in the wet pavement. I never thought garbage cans could become such a key element in an image, but they really help guide the viewer through this shot!! 😉

    • Thanks andy. Yes I was lucky although it didn’t rain. The wet pavement was due to city workers cleaning the pavement.

      • Ha! Hadn’t thought of that. The Photographer’s friend on this occasion certainly.

  11. A beautiful composed and captured photograph. So rich in details all over. And yes, as Andy points out, the rain makes the picture stand out.

  12. This reminds me of night shots I took in Gruyere, Switzerland back in the film days. Shot at 3200 speed with rainy streets, it had a mysterious look. I like your star effect–this is just beautiful. Black and white is becoming a lost art and it shouldn’t be because it can express things that can never be captured in color.
