It's a 14th-century parish church, the Church of St John the Baptist, known as the "Cathedral of the Peak", which contains three 15th-century misericords. For more detailed information,please go to http://www.peakdistrictinformation.com/visits/tidzach.php
I never know if I can get a decent picture or not when I take photos under this kind of light without tripod. Mostly it's the noise, this one seemed OK at ISO200, but there is still visible noise at the background.. Brightened up a bit on PS.Thanks for looking.

Félicitations pour cette superbe prise de vue. Je connais bien les difficultés rencontrées pour obtenir une bonne image de l'intérieur d'une église.
Tous les détails ressortent à merveille.
De plus, l'intérêt du sujet est manifeste.

You have managed the lighting, often not very easy inside churches, very well. I like the point of view and the excellent detail to be observed. The small amount of noise is quite acceptable.

I can see that, like me, you love to try taking pictures inside churches - I love them! They can be very difficult because of the poor lighting and strong contrasts but you have done extremely well here in my opinion.
The lighting here is just lovely and you have managed this without the main window being overly bright or "blown out". I love the reflections of light on the floor of the aisle too and also on the woodwork.
Your exposure is perfect, the colours are lovely and true and the details and sharpness are excellent.
But you must have a very steady hand indeed to hold a camera during a 1/8 second exposure! Very well done! You set your camera at ISO 200 but I'm sure that with the 50D you could easily have gone up to 800 without much noise.
I'm not sure if you shoot in RAW or not, but if you do there is a tool in ACR (Adobe Camera Raw - the window which opens up when you open a RAW file). Once in ACR, go to the window which deals with sharpening - the little icon looks like a pointed mountain - and select the slider "Luminance Noise Reduction". If you expand the picture to 100% and move that slider a bit to the right, you will see that it has a wonderful effect on reducing noise. Don't move it too far or the picture then loses it sharpness.
P.S. I don't know if you're interested, but I've put one or two pictures like this on a "British Listed Buildings" website. If you have a look here you can see the page for this church. Then click on "Photos" - there are eight photos there and, in my opinion, they are all rubbish compared to yours! So why not add this picture to that website?
