Here is a shot taken at the wonderful Cloister of Westminster Abbey in February.
The Cloister was originally built in the 13th century. It was completely rebuilt after it was destroyed by a fire in 1298. The cloister was used by the Benedictine monks for meditation and exercise. Follow by: aviewoncities.com

I have seen many photographs of Westminster Abbey but, for me, you have found a completely new angle.
You have used this fine, symmetrical composition to show the repeating arches and their wonderful circular decorations.
There is excellent clarity and good colour saturation.
I particularly like how the shadows create a further pattern internally!
Have a great Sunday,

A precisely framed symmetrical composition. The light was ideal to capture the golden tones in the stonework and bring out the detail to excellent effect. I like the contrasting frame offered by the sward of greenery. Fine rendering of the textural detail. Have a great Sunday afternoon.

These wonderfully intricate Gothic arcades are seen in all their lovely splendour with the beautiful stone carvings seen in remarkable details and colours. Excellent contrast of the stonework with the green of the grass. Perfect exposure and focus with very good sharpness. Another extremely good picture of yours.
Have a nice Sunday.

I like your choice of focusing on these three arches, that gives a graphical symmetric effect. The light management is excellent and yhe sun creates great plays of shadows.

J'aime bien ce découpage très symétrique d'une portion superbe de la cathédrale. J'aime bien cette lumière spéciale qui tente de percer les vitraux.

Tx to your good infor notes, Love the amount of detail in it which the lighting brings out, the mature colours tones and textures make it great shot. It's a characterful screaming architectural shot so effectively cropped and I enjoy looking at showing a lot with stunning sheer detail just where it should be. I love the upright vertical lines with good impression of the size and the green patch breaks the dominant tones boosting the overall contrast really well. Great shot, Congrats.

Now that's a cloister! A beautiful shot of this fine detail of an iconic place. I love that you chose to present this with such perfect symettry too, it do well suited to the subject. I'm learning from this image, I have never seen a cloister like this before.
Thanks as always

alla tua nitidezza proverbiale hai aggiunto una successione di forme e di colori che nella loro similitudine riempiono in maniera perfetta il fotogramma dandoci della famosa abbazia la tua personale interpretazione.
Un altro bel successo del tuo viaggio a Londra.
Ciao e buona settimana

I have to admit I would not have guessed this was the famous Abbey. It is a wonderfully cropped and graphical shot. Full of originality and an imaginative presentation. Like it!
Have a good week - B.

Belle prise de vue de ces fenêtres de l'abbaye. Très bon cadrage symétrique avec une belle lumière. J'aime bien cet espace de verdure en avant-plan. Bien fait.
SnapRJW (31627) 2014-03-31 6:14
A beautifully clean and symmetrical composition Gosia, with excellent detailing even inside the cloister where the shadows cast lovely patterns on the far wall.
A simple but immaculate photograph which really shows off the precise craftsmanship of the masons.
Have a good week
mirosu (15302) 2014-03-31 7:16
Excellent abbey windows close-up photo with very nice colors, perfect light, very good clarity. Beautiful details, nice symmetry. The well-chosen tight crop eliminates all unwanted distractions.
Very well done.
Wish you a nice week.
sabermonajati (10403) 2014-03-31 8:31
amazing view from archways with play of light and shadow you captured.
ChrisJ (104347) 2014-03-31 15:24
I wish now I had gone inside but I must have walked about 7 km from Tower Bridge and was tired. I like the punchy light contrasts, repetition of three of a kind and the wide angled panoramic crop. The people within add scale. Tfs!
marina7 (8055) 2014-04-01 11:37
wonderful symmetrical image. Impressive latticework and very nice colors to set it off. Excellent quality work, my compliments!
Have a nice week!

jak pokazac miejsce,ktore juz widzielismy na tysiaciach innch zdjec.Tutaj mamy chyba najlepsza odpowiedz.Podoba mi sie to zblizenie i perfekcyjna symetria,ktore wspolnie tworza bardzo wyrazista i mocna graficznie kompozycje.
Super,ze zostawilas ten cienki pas zielemi na dole kadru.

Nice photo with beautiful architectural details of the Abbey. I like the intricate work on the arches and the wonderful designer shadow patterns on the BG wall. Good inclusion of the thin strip of green to contrast well with the ochre coloured abbey. Well seen and taken. Thanks for sharing.
williewhistler (15571) 2014-04-03 4:27
you have portrayed all of the lovely architectural features of the cloisters perfectly in a very suitable pano format with most enjoyable symmetry.
Kind regards Les.

Nice detail capture of this beautiful gothic fassade.
Good crop and perfect sharpness.
TFS and have a nice weekend

It's so difficult not to go for the wide shot of Westminster and try to capture the entirety of architectural beauty, but what you've done here is terrific! I love the idea to isolate this section and concentrate on the big arches and repeating patterns and design within. I only wish I would have thought of this when I visited!? :) Considering the overall size, and the fact it's a cathedral, this specified section and composition could very well be considered an abstract of its own. Lovely bright light with just enough shadow for contrast and dimension. Smart vision and concept, this turned out very well. Enjoy the new day. All the best.
claudeD (35503) 2014-04-08 23:46
wonderful picture from London and Wesrminster Abbey. Perfect clarity and sharpness showing much details.Very well done.TFS.
With regards from Luxembourg

This is a beautiful presentation, very symmetrical. I especially like the 'flower shaped' glass windows and the reflection in the far wall. The slice of green in the FG makes this even more interesting. A fine picture from London.
