A very attractive image even at thumbnail size. A delicious combination of patterns in your composition from the POV that you have chosen. Beautiful colours at just the right exposure and brightness.

Like the way you have taken this image selecting only small part of this incredibly beautiful ceiling. Its design and decorations built a very interesting visual effect presented with great sharpness and clarity. Well done! TFS.

This is a bit unusual for you but I really like it!
I love the way the off-centre, focal column leads upwards and then, explodes into a multitude of patterns and lines. It is up to the individual which way they choose to go, left or right.
It is bright, detailed and sharp.
Have a lovely day,

Nous sommes tous les deux dans les plafonds de cathédrale aujourd'hui. J'aime beaucoup ce cadrage serré qui va chercher les éléments disparates de ce superbe plafond joliment coloré.

nice crop this, with elegant graceful lines and of course amazing intricate detail. This looks like it has been lovingly cared for and must be a wonder to see first hand. So original and compelling.
Regards - Brian.

crysp, sharp, nicely composed, what can I say about this shot. You choose a nice POV to show the lines and curves. A nice minimal composition. Tfs.

The patterns remind me of a complex tic tac toe game. The light and colors are first rate, revealing the details of the architecture and its decorations.

Fine details on the paintwork, and a really nice idea to focus on this small architectural detail. Perfect light here, I normally find this area of a church to be really dark, but you caught it under the perfect light to showcase this lovely design.
Thanks as always

Great minds think alike! Similar in style and theme to what I uploaded today! Good sharpness and attractive warm colours of red and gold. Excellent sharpness and graphism. Nice repetition of patterns and shapes. Tfs!
