Hello Joël,
The light is perfect here to highlight this beautiful altarpiece. Perfectly exposed with superb detail.

Hello Joel,
Great symmetrical photo of this Gothic church interior with subdued grey colors, having almost a monochromatic effect! The lighting here with the spotlight in the center together with the somber atmosphere of this place gives me an eerie feeling. Nice contrast and sharpness of all the beautiful details considering the low-light conditions!
Best regards,
Jenna

Bonjour Joel
Je ne suis pas loin et ne la connais pas, mais cela vaut le détour rien qu'à voir cet intérieur bien présenté avec une lumiere parfaite et une architecture remarquable et grandiose
Bravo
Amicalement

Hello Joel,

The central light draws the viewers' attention, via the curve of the beautiful surrounds to the central figures, above the altar. The play of light and shadow is exceptionally good in this photograph, detailing the depth of the carvings and the ceiling recesses.

My warm regards,
Bev :-)

Buonasera Joel
un'esposizione molto attenta, qui la luce sembra davvero poca. Il risultato è ottimo, come l'atmosfera mistica creata.
Un bellissimo lavoro, accompagnato da una splendida nota, come sempre.
Saluti
Carlo

Bonsoir, cher ami Joël,
Que dire devant tant de splendeur architecturale. Le choeur de la cathédrale se transforme en dentelle de pierre. Quel savoir-faire ! Ce qui est amusant, c'est la simplicité de l'autel à proximité de chef d'oeuvre.
L'image est excellente (connaissant les difficultés pour obtenir pareil résultat).
Un grand merci réitéré.
Amitiés.
Philippe

Bonsoir Joël,

Bonne composition jouant sur un effet de symétrie, avec une lumière bien gérée ; cette superbe cathédrale mérite vraiment la visite ! Excellente note, comme d'habitude.

Bonne soirée,

Sylvain

Salut Joel.
Superbe composition, qui montre une grande beauté et d'une grande filigrane, ce chœur gothique, le tout dans cette cathédrale, est un joyau qui vous laisse sans voix, j'ai été intrigué.
Sensational .... la façon dont vous avez réussi à capturer les détails, grâce à cette très bonne netteté et un éclairage intime.
Bon début de semaine.
Cordialement.
Luis.

Le cadrage serré met en évidence cette partie de la cathédrale. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails et les couleurs du chœur de la cathédrale Sainte-Cécile. La lumière environnante fait ressortir les couleurs. Bonne journée.

Hi Joel,

Excellent shot. The clarity, sharpness and lihts very well managed. Very well done.

Regards.

Mansour

Bonsoir Joel,
a great symmetrical composition with superb sense of depth. Your low point of view enhanced the suggestiveness of the architecture and decoration. The architectural patterns are elaborate but the tones are subdued and austere; your management of both the artificial and the filtred natural light is superb and has exalted this contrast. The study of details and also the atmosphere are captivating. The pictures of the workshop are very sharp, well illuminated and interesting. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great evening,
Ourania
