This view of the central tower of Salisbury Cathedral was taken from the cloisters below.
Salisbury's beautifully proportioned stone spire is the tallest in England at 404ft and crowns one of Europe's most important gothic buildings. Unlike most cathedrals, it was built entirely to the original design (rather than having bits added later in a style fashionable in the day) and is therefore the best example of the Early English style of Gothic.
Being such a graceful church, it is most often photographed from a distance. I thought this shot of the tower from the cloisters might offer a more unusual view of the church.

Very good shot. Great POV and I love the natural framing you've used it's makes for a very interesting composition. Also great point of focus and sharpness on the cathedral. It is a shame for the overcast day, I think the added color of the blue skies might be for the better. I would also consider ghosting out the two white spots in the frame. Well done!

Original idea! I like your shot! I would paint over two white spots on a photo.
