Good stuff. How was the lighting in the Cathedral? I feel a post coming on shooting in churches and at solem events.

Before they turned on all the lights, I was concerned. It was 1/40th at f/2.8 and 1000iso. After the bishop entered, it was 1.60th at 2.8. In some spots it was even at 1/100. :-)
I've been meaning to do the funeral post (already have the shots reserved), but I keep working on other things. It's coming...

Just wanted to say ditto to Justin's comment. I've shot in some of these churches where you are sometimes lucky to get a 1/30th at 1600 and you also have several different colors of lighting. So way to go, these shots are great.
