The Strasbourg Cathedral is adorned with an impressive pipes Organ and stained-glass windows.
A web page about the Cathedral, describes the work on the Organ since the 13th century (on paragraph #5).
In the WS there is an opposite view of the Organ.
Hand held, view upwards angle gave a bit skewed on details.
Location of the Cathedral: 48.5818, 7.7505

Bonjour, cher Ike,
Un cadrage très réussi mettant en valeur la rosace et les grandes orgues.
Exercice difficile à réaliser eu égard à la lumière dispensée.
Très bonne journée.

even at this picture I think the colors are very beautiful and also the interaction of the colors are very pleasing. The organ is really magnificent.
A very nice picture!
Best regards from Sweden

This organ must be absolutely beautiful. No doubt. With the stained glass window they created together a really fantastic scene. So moody and mysterious due to a charming warm tonality of your shot. TFS!
Have a nice weekend!

A cleverly framed image taking in the rose window and the beautifully decorated organ loft. Very good light management and excellent rendering of the decorative detail.

You're capturing well this inside of Cathedral by a good composition and excellent tone, so it's interesting and impressive to see huge pipes Organ and stained-glass windows in medieval times. It seems to concentrate the essence to the beauty in church culture. It is gorgeous and elaborate for pipes Organ. And, it's tasteful the geometrical pattern and the combination of color if I say about stained glass.

The stained glass and the organ are impressive. The point of view is showing the détails, the colors of the organ and of the stained glass. The light has a good effect on the colors. Have a nice day.

The Ornate pipe organ and the exquisitely captured Rose window which is almost a silhouette are the two very interesting objects in this photograph. In fact I would have cropped of a cm off the bottom and I believe it would hardly have made a difference.
Fantastic light management, to have balanced the warm golden colours of the organ and the white light coming through the stained glass windows.
Thanks for sharing.
ourania (18672) 2013-10-27 5:38
a very fine composition from an original point of view that combines two of the main characteristics of the cathedral. Your composition and framing are very effective, there's great balance and interest in the frame and very nice interaction among the various patterns. The sharpness is remarkable for a handheld shot and the play of light and shadow creates a delightful palette of fine warm tonalities that make the atmosphere quite suggestive. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great Sunday,

Voila celle disparue de hier, qui est splendide, le cadrage est excellent, tout comme la gestion de la lumière, des couleurs, une architecture d'une grande finesse et de beauté, belle complémentaire en WS
Une très belle soirée

This cathedral leaves you speechless, both for its stunning exterior, and its grand interior here has captured a very beautiful image of the organ and its pipes, as the fantastic rosette background is perfect.
Very good image quality.
Happy start to the week.

Another good original view of the cathedral Ike , with the well lit the organ on one side and windows on the other
Good election of the vertical frame
Well done, hands held and up, not easy at all, congrats
jcpix (6590) 2013-10-27 19:05
I've said it many times before...but I have come to a much better appreciation of these kinds of interior, low light photos when the exposure has been controlled so well. This is also a lovely composition, the side by side elements..both with their own distinctive appeal, is a fabulous way to show this part of the cathedral. The detail in the rose window is easy to make out, very well done for a hand held shot. The warm tones and the slight reflective surfaces add a touch of ambiance to the imagery. The upwards angle may have thrown off some of the perspective, but it's none the less attractive or interesting. This turned out quite well indeed. Have a great day ahead.
mirosu (8160) 2013-10-27 19:55
Excellent interior photo. I like the nice light and the composition with the stained glass window in the center. The view up is very good. The vertical composition works very well here. Well done. Wish you a very nice day.

This is a very nice picture of a church's interior. The stained glass window likes a flower blooming in the dark. I like it.
Have a nice day!

beautiful the view as the presentation of the interior of this section of the Cathedral with the pipe organ and the stained-glass window.I like the excellent light and colour management as we can see a lot of the interior details of it.
pajaran (41755) 2013-10-28 9:57
Lep pogled na unutrasnjost Crkve ...
Dobar kompozicija, lepo pokazana unutrasnjost i orgulje, lepe boje.
Prijatno vece i sve najbolje u novoj nedelji koja je pocela, srecno.
Nice view of the inside of the church ...
Good composition, beautiful interior and demonstrated organ, beautiful colors.
Good evening and all the best in the new week that started, good luck.

Fine view of the grandiose Stasbourg Cathedral's ornate huge wall organ with a gigantic beautiful stain glass window.

Hi dear Ike
Sorry I haven't been on TE much lately as my mamma is very ill. But it's always nice to come and visit your Gallery. The warm colours and light immediately attract the eye, you chose the vertical frame well, complementing the vertical lines of the Gothic (?) architecture. You did really well to balance the strong light through the stained glass window and the darker parts of the church and the tight cropping works well.
Great job, thanks for sharing, have a beautiful day
shevchenko (18725) 2013-10-29 1:15
Nice to see a lots of line works and geometrical shape from a selected corner, I like all these artistic carvings and patterns, thanks for sharing.
Royaldevon (21485) 2013-10-29 4:26
Sorry, haven't been around much recently due to lots of travelling locally and family commitments but glad to see that you have still some fine shots to share.
These indoor shots, with low light need a lot of expertise. Not only have you given us some excellent details of the interior decorations and textures, you have, also, given us a excellent sense of depth by use of the f/g interest, set against the distant circular window.
Have a great day,
Kugart (1774) 2013-10-29 7:50
Like the effect you have achieved here with the light coming through the ornate stained glass window and lighting up the spectacular organ. Nice composition Ike,well framed and with good light management.
mcmtanyel (5273) 2013-10-29 19:43
Nice, delicate detail preserved under difficult light. Composition is very impressive, too.
claudeD (26980) 2013-10-30 8:52
Strasbourg cathedral is very impressive from outside or inside. Very good light managment and a picture with much details.TFS.
With regards from Luxembourg
josepmarin (56489) 2013-10-30 10:54
you have skilfully managed the exposure, and have reached a good balance between lit and dark areas, with a nice cross-light in the stained-glass Windows of the Cathedral.
The pipes of the Organ stand out under a good light, offering all its details.
A beautiful work.
clic (12467) 2013-10-30 12:54
The organ grasping on vaulted walls appears as an architectural jewel 'spitting its lungs out' while performing JS Bach's Tocatta and Fugue, so intensively to the point that deep frequencies could break the adjacent stained-glass rosace that completes the fabulous decor!
A photograpic piece of art!
krzychu30 (12719) 2013-11-01 7:48
fine and carefully composed detailed shot of Strasbourg Cathedral.
I really enjoy this juxtaposition-the organ and stained glass window.Two strong focal points that attracts our attention,but do not disturb each other.
adores (30831) 2013-11-06 16:05
Looks a very beautiful catedral and I like the composition. The light showing the details of the organ is also great!
UlfE (14138) 2013-11-10 0:18
Certainly,not an easy photo to take, but your light mangagement was very good here. Stained-glass window could easily be so overexposed that you do not see any details and colours. I believe the it is your inclusion of the organ and your choice of vertical format that save the picture. TFS and have a nice Sunday!
jmdias (48359) 2013-12-04 15:29
nice idea to put the lines of the pipes against the big rose of the cathedral. I liked the visual dialogue and this details of architecture. TFS.
