A Votive in the Dark Cathedral

I love a scary cathedral. They can put you in such a melancholy and gloomy mood if you want them too. You can feel the overbearing saints from above judging your moves, and giving you a few bonus points in the big game if you light one of the votives. In a scientific study, it was proven than a votive makes a prayer 35% more likely to be granted.

The second photo below is of a vampire in a different cathedral in southern Italy.

    hi trey! recently came across this website and i must say its fantastic! you have truly sucked me into the world of HDR, and to think i knew nothing about it before visiting this site. anyways it was these shots that really inspired me, and after reading your tutorial i thought i’d try it out. so i took some shots in winchester cathedral for my project at uni. just wondered if you could check them out and possibly give me any feedback :) keep up the great work sir, you have a talent x

    Absolutely gorgeous Trey! I am a 3d animator looking for reference for a model I am about to construct. I came across the top picture on a Google image search of “dark cathedral”, and was wondering what the name was of this particular one? It would be very much appreciated!!!!!! Wonderful work!!!!
