Salisbury Cathedral 1998

(reworked negative film)

This is, personal opinion, one of the most beautiful cathedrals in Europe. And believe me; I’ve seen quite a few of those ancient buildings. It’s a pity I did not make interior pictures at the time. Salisbury is one of my favourite towns in the UK. I’ve been numerous times in Salisbury. In the seventies I worked for 4 years in Bath and whenever I had time I drove to Salisbury for the day or whatever. But also between the seventies and our move to South Africa in 2000 I’ve been several times in the area and always scheduled a detour to see this ‘Holy Building’. The last time was in 1998 when I made these pictures on negative film (digital photography was still in the ‘baby-shoes’). I’ve reworked the negatives but during the years quite a few negatives were severely damaged for whatever reason. Anyway; this is the result of a day’s hard work behind the computer. I used several techniques and layers and processing done in Photoshop, DxO Optics, Topaz and Photosuite Pro. What I also like of the cathedral is its location; in the center of town AND in the countryside (from where the pictures are made).
