However, being a resourceful lot we found a white piece of card at the back of the cafe menu and I built my own custom WB. It's made me think a lot more about spending that extra few seconds before shooting to snap a grey card. Makes for one less step when editing. This following shot was straight out of the camera after setting the custom WB on the E-1.

OK - my first edits since getting back. The following were taken in the Nieuwe Kerk (New Church) in Amsterdam on the Friday.



Some of the delicate carvings around the pulpit:






Some interesting metalwork:

Max,
I took a photo of the same woman, with the same intend, but I decided not to doit: the idea was in my mind somewhat contrived.

Max,
Good idea to take the reflection of the floor in the lamp.
I decided to take a photo directly from the floor:
