No people again.

If this was a Chinese or Indian temple place would be packed out with worshipers lighting there incense, ringing there bells and having there bowls of fruit blessed by a monk.

A fantastic photo. The clourful dome is truly beautiful. I could have sat and looked at this photo for hours. Would love to go inside St Oswalds. Thank you so much Andrew for these gems.


Comment by Derek Platt on 25th February 2012 at 01:15
Another great shot Andrew. I thought it was per-apse the same church as yesterday. This church is worth a visit next time I am in Wigan.

Wonderful shot Andrew. Love the distortion - it suits the subject so well. Don't know if you belong to a camera club or not (and probably don't need it) but have a look at the ADAPs website. If you register with them online you can enter the forum and the monthly competition. No prizes but good fun and you get some really helpful feedback. http://www.adaps.org.uk/

Another beautiful image of a beautiful church. Thank you.


Comment by Helen on 25th February 2012 at 06:30
I loved the pic yesterday, this one is even more splendid. Wonderful building & decoration. Reminds me of a church I went in on the island of Samos.

Used to live in Ashton and passed many times. Knew the history of the hand, but I had never been inside. Used to also go to the NUPRO which was on the same area, and I think it was run by the same people who belonged to this gorgous church. Lovely photos and shows all the details.

Beautiful shot Andrew, you seem to have the same eye and camera skills of Dave(oy) a true professional.


Comment by Trixie on 25th February 2012 at 10:20
I went to a funeral there a few years ago,but i never noticed it's beautiful features,i suppose I should have taken them all in.I knew about the hand but i would not know where to find it in there.lovely photos.


Comment by Jed on 25th February 2012 at 10:24
Wonderful photograph Andrew You have captured it in all its colourful splendor


Comment by Garry on 25th February 2012 at 10:26
Mick's a fruit and nutcase. Who wants to look at people, the point of this beautiful photo is the Church. Well done Andrew.


Comment by Dave Marsh on 25th February 2012 at 10:27
I went in a newly built very expensive Mosque in Morocco last year,it is enormous and has cost billions and it is very beautiful.Apart from the dozen Christian in my party the Mosque was empty.I believe it is one of the few Mosques where non Moslems are allowed inside.I suppose it all depends on the time of Day.Great photos,Andrew.


Comment by Andrew Fishburn on 25th February 2012 at 11:02
Well spotted Mick - it's not an Indian or Chinese temple (the multiple Christian symbols give it away), however if you pop along at any of the service times you will get your wish - lots of people!

Ta for the comments, folks!

A very nice shot... and technically speaking, excellently presented.

Is it HDR?
