hi Joel

Great shot of such a nice interior view. Impressive arches and details.

tfs, bill

Hello Joël,
A good capture of this magnificent interior. The perspective is well maintained and the exposure nicely managed. Nice tonal contrasts between roof and soaring columns. Are you going to show us anything of the interesting surrounding churchyard I wonder?

Ciao Joel,
bellissimo scatto di questo interno, molto ben gestita la luce, non e' mai facile in questi casi.
bellissima l'architettura e ottimo POV.
ottimo lavoro
Giorgio

Bonjour Joel,

la symetrie etait ton inspiration et c'est bien fait. La cathedrale est impressionante. Elles se ressemblent entre elles, mais chaque fois on arrete la respiration. Grand merci, c'etait plaisir

Branko

Bonsoir Joel.
Il aurait fallu peut-etre corriger l'image sur la gauche, pour rendre les colonnes paralleles au bord, comme à droite. Mais l'impression reste plus que bonne, avec un'exposition bien calculée et une belle profondeur.
Amicalement.
Bobo.

Salut Joël,
wonderful captured atmosphere of inside a church. The columns and the free space between the benches leading the eye to the altar. Good detail additions in the workshops, but the major point is this impressive capture.
Lieben Gruss, Ulf

it's a very good shot Joel,
very good atmosphere, fine lines of the pilars, good composition and very good little details, very good photojob, I like it, have a nice day.
gr. jaap

Hello, joel,
il est vrai que d'emblée il y a de la perfection dans l'air, perfection et force architecturale évidentes que tu prolonge avec une image à la hauteur qui notamment respecte une lumière ambiante qui sied parfaitement à ce decor sobre qui n'a nul besoin d'artifices.
Très bon et beau boulot en même temps qu'une bonne démarche qui signale l'interet d'un site assez peu connu.
Bravo et TFS.
Cordialement.

Hi dear Joel,
Very nice interior capture. Almost nill distortions and perfect light management.
TFS and best regards

Salut Joel,
Une belle image, pas facile a prendre correctement car, avec la perspective, on a toujours l'impression que quelque chose penche! Mais ici, tu t'en est très bien sorti.
Belle réalisation et beaux détails architecturaux bien visibles.
Très bon travail.
Amitiés.

Bonjour Joel,
an interesting interior of church, unusual details of architecture in WS. Good informations and well done photo.
Gr., Aleksander

bonjour joel,
souvent les interieurs d'églises sont assez sombres, ici la lumiere est parfaite , nuancée et douce, elle permet d'avoir un bon equilibre chromatique.
*excellente photo d'interieur*

Hello Joël,

mangigique intérieur de cette église, tu as très bien réussi a donnée l'immensitée, un beau dépouillement qui permet la réflexion, j'aime beaucoup ces intérieurs simples, les colonnes sont superbe et plus on monte, plus la lumière nous éclaire comme sur le sommet, très belle maîtrise, superbe.

Bravo et amitiés

Nicou

salut Joel,
Belle prise avec un effet de hauteur bien rendu par ce cadrage, la lumière assez faible convient à l'atmosphère de receuillement, une personne sur un des bancs ajouterait un plus ... bon un détail.

Hello Joel, I have found it very difficult to take a good clear shot inside of a church because they always seem to be very poorly lit but you have managed the light here very well & have a very good well composed image with good light, colour & detail. It looks like a very plain church unlike many others.
Interesting & informative note.
Thank you
Santo

Hi Joel!
Fantastic pov showing the interior of this church. The light and the vertical lines are perfect and I really like those little candles in the background. The interior is simple but really beautiful
