In the lower picture of my collage
you can see a part of the Church of the Saviour on the Blood. There quite many exterior views of this church but very few pictures of its interior. And the interior is magnificent. Every square centimeter of the walls and ceiling is mosaics. The church contains over 7500 square meters of mosaics—according to its restorers, more than any other church in the world.The walls and ceilings inside the church are completely covered in intricately detailed mosaics — the main pictures being biblical scenes or figures — but with very fine patterned borders setting off each picture.

Erected on the site where political nihilists fatally wounded Emperor Alexander II in March 1881, the Cathedral of the Resurrection of Christ was constructed between 1883 and 1907, funded by the imperial family. (Wikipedia)

Better see in the large format.

Ciao Malgo,i haven't words to describe this wonderful interior! There are some elements,like Jesus Christ,that reminds me the cathedral of Monreale,Sicily. But here there are a lot of different colors and not in total gold like in Sicily. Fantastic pics,i like the symmetry of the main and the different prospect in the WS. Have a good night and thanks,Luciano

Hi Malgo,
Magnificent this ceiling, so full with paintings and such high quality. You also managed to take it with optimal overall sharpness and vivid colors.
Thanks and regards,

Hello Malgo,
Both pictures are superb captures of the wonderful interior with its numerous sublime mosaics!
In itself I am not really looking for symmetrical images but I think you've chosen the best photo as the main upload.
Excellent light management. Wonderful colours!
Best regards, Paul

Hi Malgo
Magnificent in the large view. Amazing mosaics!

Ciao cara Malgo, great view of fantastic church, beautiful frescoes, wonderful colors, excellent exposure, good clarity, splendid light and fine details, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Bonjour, chère MALgo,
En contemplant ces mosaïques, je me demande si je ne rêve pas tant la beauté des fresques réalisées dépasse l'entendement.
C'est splendide, magnifique et fort bien photographié.
Les détails sont superbes.
Très bonne journée.

Hi Malgo,
a so lovely decoration for this interior, well framed, good angle and perfect for the rendering, colors and sharpness, tfs.

Hi Malgo,

The tight frame is putting the architecture in evidence. The point of view is showing the details othe interiot of the church of the Savior on the Blood. The surrounding light is bringing out the beauty of the colors. Have a nice day.

Bardzo bogata dekoracja, bardzo kolorowa i wyrazista, jakosc zdjecia jest idealna, jestem pod wrazeniem tego wnetrza
pozdrawiam Ryszard

Czesc Malgosiu
Obydwa zdjecia bardzo ladne, na prawde nie wiedzialabym, ktore wybrac. Fajnie, ze udalo ci sie odtworzyc te kolory mimo, jak mysle, skapego swiatla we wnetrzu kosciola.
Pozdrawiam serdecznie

Malgorzata, fantastic church interior seen in St Petersburg. The ceiling, the pillars and the walls are embellished by religious theme mosaics everywhere. It is remarkable artwork. The chandeliers add a lot of character to the interior too. Vivid colors, good image quality.

Hello Malgo,
I'm sure you could spend many hours examining and photographing all the mosaics in this church. The artwork is really impressive, and I like the rich colors. This is a very nice sample of work, and i like the two chandeliers on either side of the frame, too.

Hi Malgorzata
Fascinating interior where every inch is an artwork of highest order to be appreciated! Your shooting angle emphasising detail in sumptuous colours and tones with three dimensional effect and depth within the space. Credit to your subtle brightness control. Very impressive shot
Best regards

Hello, Malgo!

Wonderful paintings in the interior of this church, captured with excellent light management and from a POV that makes everything looks really imposing here! Very nice composition! Well done!

Hi Malgo
Wonderful and difficult to capture this marvelous ceiling with such perfect symmetry, that beauty of mosaics and how colorful, I love these churches.
Sharpness, lighting, color, and the magnificent composition; They are all perfectly realized factors, in this beautiful image.
Well done I like very much.
You have a good day.
Very best regards.
