Very good Edward. When I take stained glass window shots mine come out over or under exposed each time. Being picky, I would have preferred to see what is holding the glass in place though.
Thanks for your comment, Mobscooter. I took this picture thinking that the coloured window was more interesting than the stonework surrounding it. The impression of the bright image, isolated from its surroundings, was intentional. I appreciate that you might have taken it differently, according to your taste. As a general observation, taking pictures inside churches is always a challenge, with their dark interiors and bright windows. If you set the exposure for the general interior light level of the church, the windows will come out over exposed, as you say yours do. Here, I metered off the window rather than the church interior, so the stonework is inevitably underexposed. If you wanted to see both the bright and dark bits, you would have to use flash, or set the camera to HDR and use a tripod. If you wish to see the larger view of this window (which shows the stonework) please look at my Image http://www.picturesofengland.com/England/Oxfordshire/Swyncombe/pictures/1178195
I was unaware of the technicality of the shot and thank you for explaining things. I see that it is quite elevated to centre top of two taller side windows. I ament my comment and praise your expertize, Edward. That sort of shot is not one that I would aspire to achieve.
