..... or the Minoritenkirche in Vienna .

Sitting in the Minoriten Platz very close to the Hofburg palace the site on which the church is built was given to followers of Francis of Assisi in 1224. The top of its belltower was damaged during the first Austro-Turkish war, rebuilt, then again destroyed again during the second Austro-Turkish war; the top was then replaced by a flat roof.

There is a life-sized copy of Leonardo da Vinci's The Last Supper on the church's northern wall. It is by the Roman artist Giacomo Raffaelli, commissioned by Napoleon I in 1809, he planned to move the original from Milan to Paris and replace it with the copy. However, the Battle of Waterloo thwarted his plans.

When I was there yesterday morning it was being made ready for a wedding that afternoon ..... such a pretty place to be married in Smile

This is 5 exposures merged in photomatix and finished off in PSE.

Many thanks as always for your time .... my internet time is a bit limited here in Vienna but I will catch up when I can Smile

The end result looks very impressive Gill, as already mentioned by Adrian regarding it as a print. I would suggest a textured paper might work well given the delicate/ soft feel to the image.
