Two great sets of images Stuart.

For the stained glass photographs, which metering mode do you tend to use?

I understand from previous posts etc that you adjust the exposure down by 2/3 of a stop or a full stop. I often wonder whether it is best to use evaluative metering and adjust the general exposure as it applies to the whole window, or to spot meter from some of the individual panes/panels. I find stained glass to be tricky, as there is a mix of deeply saturated colours and clear panes that tend to over-expose.

All the best,
