Ceiling of crossing tower of St Nicholas' Church of Ghent
St. Nicholas' Church is one of the oldest and most prominent landmarks in Ghent, Belgium. Begun in the early 13th century as a replacement for an earlier Romanesque church, construction continued through the rest of the century in the local Scheldt Gothic style (named after the nearby river). Typical of this style is the use of blue-gray stone from the Tournai area, the single large tower above the crossing, and the slender turrets at the building's corners (from wiki)

Stunning view of this ceiling. I really like this kind of shots, and this one is perfectly realised. The square format makes your picture very graphic. Excellent light management.

A beautifully composed and expertly illuminated photo. I love the geometry and perspective, aswell as the subtle play of light and shade. The square framing has been b=very effective here.

Superb capture of this beautiful ceiling, you have captured the image with great precision and overall symmetry, good geometric elements in their composition.
Very good brightness and sharpness, with beautiful colors.
Well done. I Like
Have a good day.
P/D. I guess in your comment to my picture, you'd want to say that the facade of the cathedral restoration was therefore constructed takes hundreds of years, or confused with the Sagrada Familia, which is under construction.

now thats an interesting viewpoint!
I always say that its so important to look upwards when taking photos :)
love the contrast of shadow vs. light.
and the hint of blue color is awesome, perhaps your best posted shot yet

This square format and the view from below reminds me Deniz's photo from Seville. Good idea and excellent realization. I like all the details. I do not remember anything similar, this ceiling is unique. Superb symmetry.
And congratulations for your first milestone!!

Taken in a city I know rather well, but this shot still manages to surprise me. I don't think I've ever visited the St Nicholas! Just goes to show...I think I should!
Great pov and fine tones.
