Everyday in summer Exeter cathedral yard becomes a picnic place, people sitting and resting on the lawns, enjoying the weather and fascinating view.

According to my simple "philosophy" on photography, people as well as buildings benefit from each others' company in pictures. I really think that this cathedral looks nicer because of the people sitting on the lawn in the foreground, just as they wouldn't have made such a good picture without the magnificent church behind them. Then of course this photo also owes a lot to the fine light and the dark sky. I also like the shadow on the lower part of the church tower. It's a very attractive picture with good colours and light.

Hello Romana ,
With this superb light combinated with the dark cloudy sky , and also with the presence of the band of young people on the grass , it was the perfect moment to capture this scene . Of course , the architecture is beautiful an dinteresting , too .

La très belle lumière donne toute sa splendeur à ce château, tout en créant un bon contraste sur le ciel sombre.
Bien vu, le petit groupe assis sur l'herbe.

A wonderful shot of the tower, and such a pleasing composition with the small group on the grass. Wonderful light and shadows in this one, under a dark and menacing sky. I'm sure you cropped this, and the proportions are just right. Of course, the young people on the grass are what really make this one stand out. An excellent photo.

A very attractive scene with the group of people in the foreground and the very impressive cathedral behind. The dramatic sky also adds interest to the whole picture!

The overcast sky has created a very romantic and sublime light here to illuminate this impressing cathedral. The group of students on the lawn add a nice and relaxed mood to the scene.
have a great day

Today I'd like to see the British Castles. Very smart composition, excellent vertical composition. Amazing contrastbetween stormy background and the sunny field on the FG.

The dark clouds has given a lot of atmosphere to this shot and the light has given good detail in the old stonework of the cathedral. You have cleverly used the group of people to balance the composition.
Very well taken.
Kind Regards, Ann

Just trying to catch up on some critiquing and I see this wonderful photograph which I've missed while I was away.
Your picture is beautifully composed and has been taken in the most lovely soft light which you have managed exceedingly well. The colours are natural and true and the textures and details in the cathedral are perfect. The inclusion of the little group of people in the foreground adds to the appeal with some human interest and a fine sense of scale.
Perfect exposure and exquisite details and sharpness.

Zdravo Romana. The subject matter, the light(and clouds), the lawns, the antiquity of the place make this a very British image. Lovely composition. Pozdrav. Klaudio.

I wish you posted photos on TE more often because you have such great quality and compositions with your photography :)
this one is no exception.
the grey skyline is a addition too, as are the people in the lower fg.
strong composition, strong subject all with excellent lighting.
