Most people who visit Manhattan will spend part of that time walking around St. Patrick’s Cathedral on 5th Avenue. Most people do not, however, realise that some of the other churches right next door are also worth dropping in on.
Fifth Avenue Presbyterian is one that I especially love. The architecture is fabulous with an amazing balcony curving around the inside of the sanctuary and some incredibly intricate detail work on the ceiling.
This is another location where HDR processing helps enormously. If you visit, you probably won’t see the church looking like this – it’s really dark in there most of the time (at least based on my experience of two visits – I expect there is more light on Sundays during services). Without HDR, there would have been no way to capture the dark woodwork without leaving all the windows completely blown out.
