taken originally in B&W with zoom-in / zoom out. cropped out from wide angle version, distrotion correction done, contrast added.
Construction of Cologne Cathedral began in 1248 and took, with interruptions, until 1880 to complete. It is 144.5 metres long, 86.5 m wide and its towers are approximately 157 m tall. The cathedral is one of the world's largest churches and the largest Gothic church in Northern Europe. For four years, 1880-84, it was the tallest structure in the world, until the completion of the Washington Monument. It has the second-tallest church spires, only surpassed by the single spire of Ulm Minster, completed 10 years later in 1890. Because of its enormous twin spires, it also presents the largest façade of any church in the world. The choir of the cathedral, measured between the piers, also holds the distinction of having the largest height to width ratio of any Medieval church, 3.6:1, exceeding even Beauvais Cathedral which has a slightly higher vault.

We see so many architecture pics here, but not many have the artistic sense of this one. I think, there is more essence of the place than detail, and that for me, is what it is all about. Great and haunting photogarphy,

Un exercice technique difficile, je crois que le choix du N&B est correct.

Galiba gözlüklerimi takmadım ve astigmat'dan dolayı herşeyi çift ve dağılmış görüyorum ve bu hoşuma gitti...Ortada patlayan ışığa bayıldıım

As a historian of architecture ;)) I have to say in my opinion you've somehow managed to show an essence of gothic style. And I do love it that way.

Brillant effect you manage to get with your zoom. I like the ghost atmosphere.

it's indeed a very Gothic shot - along with korkut's exorcist photo of a few days ago it forms a powerful dark diptych.
I remember that one of my photography teachers sent us out one day with this assignment - use the zoom creatively, i.e. zoom in and out of subjects... what came out was pretty interesting :)
happy holidays... wherever you are :)
