This IS magnificent, Nigel. And , yes, the tone and your treatment really accentuate the details in this marvelous building. I apologize but I am not familiar with this one. Is it possible to "google" this structure so I can learn a bit more? Wonderful, Nigel. Thank you :-)

Probably the best cathedral frontage in Britain Nigel, although we need to be a bit closer to appreciate it's level of detail and decoration.
