Church of St. Andrew, Corbridge

Posted by Curly (South Shields, United Kingdom) on 19 May 2017 in Architecture and Portfolio.

Corbridge is a town which traces its history back beyond the Roman invasion, it was then renamed Corstopitum and has the excavated remains of the Roman garrison nearby. It sits on the River Tyne between Newcastle and Hexham.
This is St. Andrew's church in the town square.
I posted this mainly because I'm becoming quite impressed with the quality of picture that my Huawei Google Nexus 6P phone is producing. This is as good as any HDR that I'm making with bigger cameras!

@Nicou: C'est ce nouveau style moderniste d'avoir un autel de mi-hauteur dans l'église.

Devi from Chennai, India

Interesting history here.
The image looks really sharp !!!!

@Devi: What do you think of this modern mobile altar on castors?

Ronnie 2¢ from Atlantic Shores, United Kingdom

Indeed, a fine shot . . the church feels to embody a whole range of different eras . . which, I suppose, it actually does !

@Ronnie 2¢: A church of and for all ages I think, and as you can see it tries very hard to keep bang up to date.

Marjolein from Netherlands

That is indeed a compliment!
What a wonderful symmetry in the church

@Marjolein: Yes, I'm very very impressed with the phone's low light performance.

Mhelene from Villiers-sur-Marne, France

Interesting. Not sure what to make the the table and chairs, though.

@beach: It's a modernist mobile altar on castors, currently in mid position at the entrance to the choir.

Tomek from PoznaƄ, Poland

Splendid image. Superb perspective and sharp details.

@Tomek: Thanks I'm glad you like it.

mike miller from gateshead, United Kingdom

If that is from a phone Im impressed

19 May 2017 2:34pm

@mike miller: Yep, it's getting pretty ridiculous when you consider the size and weight of a backpack with two bodies, a selection of lens, flashlight, cables, filters etc. You seem to get most of all that packed into the body of a phone these days!

grouser from Ludlow, United Kingdom

Lovely interior shot with bags of shadow detail

19 May 2017 2:40pm

@grouser: Yeah, that's the impressive part, low light detail without a whole lot of digital noise.

Willem from Noord-Scharwoude, Netherlands

A fine exposed image.

19 May 2017 4:00pm

@Willem: Thank you, I'm surprised myself.

Dany Kervran from Morillon, France

Effectivement, les couleurs sont magnifiques, et la verticalité des murs et des colonnes m'impressionne !

A beautiful interior image.

@Steve Rice: Glad you like it Steve.

Adela Fonts from Barcelona, Spain

A delicious image ... Perfect edition...! I love it!

19 May 2017 5:40pm

@Adela Fonts: Remarkably no editing done in post here, I edited it on the phone using Snapseed.

Ruthiebear from Titusville, NJ, United States

Impressive for a phone camera!!! Beautifully clear with superb color

19 May 2017 8:11pm

@Ruthiebear: I used Snapseed for Android on the phone to edit the picture, just needed a little extra shadow detail and a light sharpen, nothing more!

STEED from D, France

Like the way you build this picture,Curly ,and the originallity it gives to the angle of view ....Well done,Friend ....

19 May 2017 9:24pm

@STEED: Most people were walking around this table, without realising that it is an altar, so I decided to use it as my centrepiece in the foreground.

L'Angevine from Angers, France

agréable recherche

Good shot. I am also impressed by the quality rendered by your phone.

20 May 2017 4:05pm

@MAU: I think these new phones are getting ridiculously good.

Beautiful !

@Hiro: Thank you

Devi from Chennai, India

Where worship places are concerned, I am a bit traditional when it comes to the interior ! No...I am against mobile altars !!!!! Traditional looks should not be tampered with !!

Devi from Chennai, India

In our temples for instance, there are musicians beating some type of drums and ringing bells and clapping with cymbals. Some even sing. Now in quite a few Temples, these people are being replaced by mechanical.electrical drums and bells !! Cassettes are being played with mikes too!!! I find it annoying ! But one has to accept that things are changing !
