This shot was taken at Netley Abbey, Southampton on a very bright sunny afternoon. Many books suggest this is bad light for photography and it is true there are shadows created that make many scenes look pretty poor. However, shooting into the sun gives you the option of this type of shot. I positioned myself so that the sun shone through the top window section and exposed for minimal detail in the walls – near silhouette. Post processing I have only reduced the colour temperature a little to bring back the blue sky and removed a circle of lens flare.
