I always enjoy visiting the chapel located on the campus at Princeton University. It certainly has a medieval feel about it. The design was by Ralph Adams Cram and construction was completed in 1928.

The images of cathedral interiors taken by the British photographer, Frederic H. Evans, are quite inspiring. Since he worked using a platinum process (platinotype), his images have great subtlety and depth. It is a challenge to imitate this look using digital techniques. Equally important, one ought to keep the columns appearing vertical in the print.
