    Bea and Anne-Marie are right — that’s a marvellous photo of York Minster. Is it HDR? If so, you’ve done it beautifully, with commendable restraint (unlike far too many cartoonish HDR photos). But, no matter how you managed it, the composition’s superb.

    I want one of those pasties, too.

    Now you don’t get walls like that in New Zealand! Or churches. Your photo of the ceiling of York Minster is stunning.

    My visit to York some years ago was very brief, looking at your wonderful photos makes me wish that I’d had the time to appreciate it further.

    I cannot believe how strong the desire for a pasty is right now; I haven’t had one in years. Also, York Minster looks very swanky indeed, especially when photographed so elegantly. The shot of the ceiling is pure WOW. You, madam, are Talented with a Capital T.
