Tintagel Church. (1080)

Tintagel Church is dedicated to St Merteriane. St Materianas may have been St Madryn, a princess of Gwent, who is believed to have preached here. The present church may have been built on the site of a Celtic oratory run by the monks of Minster. It is outside Tintagel village on a uncluttered site, off the coast path.

Tintagel Church today has a cruciform shape of nave chancel and transepts, and was built between 1080 and 1150. The Norman Earls of Cornwall held Tintagel and built first Bossiney Castle. Then Earl Reginald, a son of Henry I, built the first Tintagel castle on the island around 1141 and probably finished building the church. Much of the existing stonework of the north wall may part of an earlier church incorporated in the Norman building .

The 1940 excavations revealed a crypt underneath the floor containing a number of burials.

Breaking the third rule by placing the main subject in the centre of the photograph.

Converted to sepia tones and hi lighted some of the stonework

Hi Steve,
A nice effect in this monumental shot! This is surely breaking the rule of thirds with its central position. Pleasant softness and a nice frame to compliment and gives a macabre aspect to this presentation.
Well done,

Francis Xavier

Nice work in the post processing stage, Steve.

The darkness and grain adds a chilling and grisly reminder of what was and what is remembered.

A sad scene emphasised perfectly with your camera and processing skills.

I'm not even contemplating the idea behind the theme, the shot has great impact for all the right reasons.


Hi Steve,

The distance between the monument and the church is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details of the remembrace monument. THe monument being almost centered the rules of the thirds is broken. Have a nice day.

Bonsoir Steve,

This is the easiest way to break the rule and probably one of the very rare way. Low POV and forced perspective give the impression the monument is really gigantic compared to the house. Original presentation and PP treatment for this subject. Nice contribution and TFS.


Hi Steve! Beautiful B&W capture. Well done. Excellent work. Regards Csabi
