Extraordinary light inside the building. Unfortunately, I only managed a couple of frames before being informed that photography was not allowed inside.

Yes, I've had the same experience with my camera both in Europe and Brazil... and it's really difficult to hide a DLSR. Would like to see this in colour..

Yes, an all-too-familiar story. I was berated in Durham Cathedral for happy snapping. It's not often you'll hear this, but I like the noise in this image.

Beautiful natural light, too bad the photography police got you but at least you got a couple of frames, and this is a good one.

The Frauenkirche is extraordinary for so many reasons. It was built like this to maximise a very tight site, galleried upwards with no space at all outside. Now, of course, there are acres of space outside. It's extraordinarily beautiful inside with wonderful pale marbles and fabulous light. If only I'd had the 9-18 then.

Chris, I added the grain in Silevr Efex Pro to mask the 620's sensor noise. It's a variation on HP4.

I do like it, Mike. Even the grainy noises are working well here.

I also like the grain and the black and white conversion is great
