I've come back to this picture many times since I've been here, and just realized I never commented. Well, now it's on my favorites list. :) I know that doesn't make me unique, but it's truly a stunning shot. Both the angle and the architectural elements, but also the gorgeous blue of the ceiling.

I really like this image. Beautiful archetecture and wonderful colors. You did a nice job of framing to convey the magnitude of this cathedral.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Excellent!! Cant believe this is at ISO1600 could you post a spot at 100% crop to have a closer look at the levels of niose???

I have a kit (18-55) with my 350D/XT and find it hard to get images this sharp!

Many thanks

Absolutely Wow!

I've gotten some shots in churchs with no tripod by laying the camera on the floor, small aperture, wide lens, self-timer; and then aggressively cropping to get a good composition. But this one - total wow. Congratulations.

This image reaches out to pull the viewer in. It is a very good capture because the exposure was well addressed to give it its beauty. You look at a modern structure and the mind absorbs all elements pretty quickly, however, this image is a feasr for the eyes as the more you find the more there is. Congratulations on your well earned BLUE.

  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/04/2005 03:17:52 PM
Wow this is beautiful and there really is a lot going on, however it is a little too organized for me to call it busy. The design elements, although there are many, are not distracting because they form a pattern. Very cool shot though.
