I am pretty sure this is a rare perspective. I am also pretty sure some people won't like it. But I think it is both very graphic and serene. So there.

Shot in the Alcobaça Monastery, a UNESCO World Heritage site, where Cister monks have dwelled since the 12th century. Its church is the largest in Portugal, and believe me, there are a *lot* of churches in Portugal. Its size, the purity of its architectural style, the beauty of the materials and the care with which it was built make this Monastery a masterpiece of Cistercian Gothic art.

I wonder how this would look if you took one step left or right to give more dramatic lines...
