St. Mary’s Cathedral Kilkenny

On a recent walk in Kilkenny as the evening was closing in, the rays of the sun and the silhouette of St. Mary’s Cathedral in Kilkenny drew my attention.

Using spot metering I was able to place the cathedral so that it was darker than the background and thus also showing the lighting and texture of the clouds. I would have liked to use my ND Grad filters but on a casual walk I had no filter holders with me, just the camera.

The resultant shot is shown below.

To enhance the image further I also made the image black and white. I wanted to leave some detail on the church rather than just a  solid black outline.
