Hi Kosmas, Thankyou for your visit and comment.The door used to be left unlocked for visitors to go inside,sadly like most churches that cannot be done any more. My best wishes, Neil.

That's a really nice picture Neil. Like the composition and the lines of the grave stones leading you into the shot. Excellent work. The ccd in your camera could do with a clean though - I recognise the all too familiar black spots in the sky :-)

Hi Neil8, Thanks for all your comments and paying me a visit.I never noticed the spots until you pointed them out.I take it you mean the sensor? would a silicone puffer suffice or is cleaning fluid necessary? I'm pretty much a novice at photography. Thanks for making me aware.Regards, Neil.

No probs - I believe the specks often come from minute brass particles which get knocked off the fittings when you change lenses. Definitely want to be careful around the ccd as they're quite fragile so you need to be sure what you're doing - you can get lint free swabs and special fluids but I don't think you need to in this case - I checked your camera manual and it looks like you can have the camera clean it automatically - use the Cleanup Mode in the set-up menu. Give me a shout if you get stuck - neil_aitkenhead@yahoo.co.uk

Oh, and you can get rid of them on photos after the event if you have to using the clone brush or healing brush tool depending on what software you have. Just select something close by so the colours match if you're cloning

Quintessential old English rural church superbly portrayed Neil..A hidden gem ;>)

Thankyou Jim Its a lovely old church,many people think its the smallest in England,but it isn't. I can remember when the door used to be left open,no more sadly. I seem to remember there is an effigy of a medieval knight in there,it would be nice to see it again, maybe one day??

Thanks for popping in Jim, all the best...Neil.
