A decent well composed internal record and this one is sharp enough. Your exposure looks pretty good.

I have no expertise in the work that you have done with this image but I am very impressed with the outcome Elaine. You have certainly captured all that you intended.

I think youve done a great job with this.

One question, - the centre area, and the door, have a blue colour cast, - is this the way it was at the time?

Regards

Looks alright as it is.

I suspect the blue on the door and on the marble floor comes from the dome above, It would have stained glass. As far I can remember this tiny church has a form of "basilica" in its most plain form, one main corridor, no side ailses. Normally the dome is supported by a vertical construction to the main corridor, creating what is called "basilica with a cross". You may have actually passed that point and shot beyond the meeting point. Looking at the temple picture you have Virgin Mary on the left, Jesus on teh right, the saint whose name is given to the church next to Jesus (John the Baptist in our occasion and on the two servant entrances Arch-Angels Michael and Gabriel. This church is tiny so I can't say who is teh saint next to Virgin Mary. The high chair on the right is for an Archbishop and the wooden construction behind it supports the psalm books during ceremonies. You have used your lens nicely to include all these but you can also go closer and find interesting close ups.

Hi Paul,

Thanks for your comment.

I was pleased that I managed to maintain enough sharpness with this hand held shot.

Cheers

Hi Mike,

Thanks for taking the time to comment.

I used the photo merge option in Elements 10. I'm just learning how to use it, but I'll probably use it more now that I'm getting the hang of it and can see the results it can yield.

Cheers

Elaine

Hi Willie,

Thanks for the mod - it looks nice a little warmer too.

Yes I think there was a blue cast and as Pablo has suggested it may have been coming from the mainly blue frescos on the ceiling.

I'm glad you like my processing of the shot.

Cheers

Elaine

Hi Pablo,

Thanks for your very interesting explanation of who is depicted in the frescos, and what happens during ceremonies.

I've often admired these beautiful church paintings but have never had the stories explained to me.

Thanks for your support.

Cheers

Elaine

The second super richly coloured interior today. This one is so enjoyable with all that detail and the full array of colours. TG

Hi Tony,

Thanks for taking the time to comment on my shot, and your nice comments.

I took a few shots of church interiors when I was on holiday in Kos. Because of the dark interiors it was difficult to get a shot that was sharp enough. I knew that the subject would make a lovely image if I could manage to get a sharp enough image with a decent exposure to work on.

I'm glad I persisted, especially when I get encouraging comments from my fellow EPZ'ers.

Thanks for your support.

Cheers

Elaine
