Blue sky blessings (theme)

by Helen Hooker November. 25, 2009 4008 views

After the incessant rain of the last week today started with a glorious blue sky which struck me as being an ideal inspiration for today??s ??blessings?? theme. As I walk into school on a Wednesday I pass this rather imposing statue of St. Richard (by the sculptor Philip Jackson), who was Bishop of Chichester from 1244 and is buried inside the Cathedral. I took this shot during my lunch break and used my polarising filter to bring out the colour of the blue sky.

This is one of those shots you want to love but have to criticize: I would have cropped differently (I know, the PB vertical bias is hard to overcome) and would address the exposure differently to avoid that large black hole...
