Magnum opus

Magnum opus

The magnificent St Paul's cathedral, in London, is widely hailed as the greatest work of its designer, Sir Christopher Wren (1632-1723). Wren was himself the first among many illustrious people to be buried inside the cathedral over the centuries. The inscription above his tomb reads "Lector, si monumentum requiris, circumspice" (Reader, if you seek his monument, look around you).

    P.S. I think this is the best photo I've ever taken, so I will very happily accept hundreds of likes, a weekend slot in the 'Selected' section, POTD, a contract with Magnum Photos, the front cover of Time magazine... hell, I'll take whatever I can get for it! ;-) ;-) ;-) Mind you, most of the credit actually goes to Fuji for their fanfreakin'tastic Neopan Acros film, which I shot this album with. This was the first time I'd used it and the results just blew me away - especially when viewed on a big computer screen. Have already ordered another 10 rolls, so I hope to capture many more images like this one...

    @davidpowell: Thank you! Using a red filter on the lens helped a lot too.

    @jandra: Uh... yeah, but I don't think many Playboy readers buy it because they admire architecture... :-)

    Really great shots. The film of course really is great; but these series of Nikons are defiantly under appreciated. Dirt cheat to buy off ebay even with a lens and lots of program-ability. Keep shooting!
