Few weeks ago I submitted a post of the St-Jean-Baptiste-au-Béguinage ceiling. You can see it here.
Today I'd like to share it with you with a different view of this beautiful interior.
Church of St-Jean-Baptiste-au-Béguinage (The Michelin guide review): In a peaceful district, this church has a Flemish Baroque façade with three bodies (1676). Inside, the exuberant decoration is placed over a Gothic structure. Above the large arcades, the entablature rests, at the junction of the arches, on the heads of winged angels. You can admire the paintings by Van Loon and different Flemish artists. The neighboring Beguine convent, which used to have up to 1,200 nuns, disappeared in the 19C.

I like the existence of the impressive wooden pulpit on the right with the man to adds life in the image.
Have a good afternoon,Danos

A shot with immense details but ambient is extremely special here and the natural tones have further enhanced the uniqueness and style of the architecture The pov has greatly accetuated the depth and height with good scale to greatest effect. Pin sharp throughout, an image to be proud off. Fine works, Congrats.

Good evening Malgorzata,
A magnificent view indoor's, with the big pilars support the archs and ceiling.
Scaled by the man standing on mid-picture, and good light managed.

a perfectly chosen POV that gives us an idea of the height and beauty of this magnificent interior. Exquisite detail and light especially on the floor which adds that little touch of magic. Wonderful!
Have a great weekend - regards Brian.

1200 nuns disappeared - wow Malgorzata: where have they gone? ; )
Great to see a non nun human element in this holy placebecause otherwise it would be hard to scale. Again a very well exposed interior with many fantastic details. Well done.

Lovely and textured shot, Malgorzata. The soft light coming in from the left creates a really nice effect in the bottom of the frame, surrounding the walking man, while also bringing out the detail in the ceiling and the woodwork and creating an interesting reflection on the tile floor. Well seen and captured!

This is a very fine interior shot. Your POV has shown the height and detail of the arches and columns very well. Lovely light on the floor and the man has been caught in a very good position. Very well done - TFS.
Kind Regards, Ann

Great! I like your photo too. Fine vertical format, perfect sharpness. I was there in 1999 and I was impressed by Belgian architecture. Excellent presentation. TFS!

interno della chiesa fotografato con molta cura e attenzione per la luce e la nitidezza.
Infatti la lettura dei dettagli è eccellente in ogni piano focale.
Il formato verticale esalta lo slancio prospettico e maestoso delle colonne.
Lavoro eccellente eseguito con l'abituale perizia.

il perfetto controllo della luce ti ha permesso di fare una foto veramente bella. Il taglio e l'inquadratura sono splendidi e l'uomo è una bella presenza, oltre a dare le dimensioni, la rende viva.

Une très bonne photo d'architecture, très bien cadrée et redressée. Bonne maitrise de l'exposition.

There is a nice ambience here with the natural light filtering in and highlighting this lovely interior. Vertical format works well so that we can get a good sense of the great height of the ceiling and columns. The man walking in gives an extra sense of the size and adds a nice touch of life.

c'est vrai que cet intérieur méritait un post, une belle lumière en arrière plan, une architecture de toute beauté, ce visiteur qui semble être très intéressé également, un cadrage excellent pour cette réalisation

An impressive architecture capture from that cathedral. I like Brussels very much, hope you've enjoyed it too.
eldancer1 (36343) 2012-08-04 9:14
Awesome capture of those columns and the person to give a sense of proportion to the building. Good use of available lighting and dof with nice details. Well done, tfs.

The spettolarità of the place,
The colonnade, cutting environment "POV" and the colors ... Flemish, with a delicate marro on white marble.
Refined detail and sharpness of the present.
Lovely picture that emerges from Comini patterns and sharing nicely.

I'd like to reinforce your description "exuberant" by outstanding piece of sacred architecture that keeps prisonner incense smells in high arched ceiling!
You captured its majesty by the rules book with subtle lighting.
