An inside view of one of the many beautiful churches in Bologna. I have to confess I don't know the name of this particular one, but it stands close to the Bologna Opera House in the University District.
Bologna is the largest city and capital of Emilia-Romagna Region in Northern Italy. It is the seventh most populous city in Italy, located in the heart of a metropolitan area officially recognized by the Italian government as a città metropolitana of about one million.
The city, the first settlements of which date back to at least 1000 BC, has always been an important urban centre, first under the Etruscans (Velzna/Felsina) and the Celts (Bona), then under the Romans (Bononia), then again in the Middle Ages, as a free municipality. For one century it was the fifth largest European city based on population.

This is a spectacular view, the lights and color here are just perfect to show off this impressive church in all its glory and splendor! The central composition creates impressive symmetry and is I think the best way to showcase it.
Thanks as always

Tu as eu la chance de ne pas être dérangé par les touristes pour prendre cette très belle photo. Tu as toute la travée centrale à ta disposition, ce qui donne de la profondeur à l'image. Tu as très bien géré la lumière.

tous ces intérieurs d'églises italiennes sont magnifiques, avec leur côté baroque, les ornements, les autels et là un bon cadrage avec cette perspective de l'allée centrale

This is an excellent image of this church interior. The colours and fine details are exquisitely rendered and well balanced. The observable details captured within the shadow areas indicate a perfect exposure.

Very beautiful interior. In Italy you find a lot of great interiors even the outside architecture may look simple.
Have a good day ahead.
Royaldevon (23372) 2014-01-14 1:04
You really have mastered the technique of interior photography!
The quality of this exposure is quite amazing.
The details are sharp and textures undeniable.
Of course, the composition is symmetrical, which suits the subject. Perfectly.
I thought I had sent this yesterday but for some reason it was not there!
Have a great day,

Beautifully you showed a charming interior of the church in Bologna!
Wonderful symmetrical photo in beautiful colors and good sharpness.

La longueur de l'allée centrale donne de la profondeur à la composition. L'utilisation d'un ISO 2000 et d'une vitesse d'exposition lente permet de voir les détails et les couleurs de L'intérieur de l'église. Cela a aussi un effet spécial sur les couleurs de l'image. Bonne soirée.
emka (67229) 2014-01-18 21:26
beautiful Baroque interior of this Bologna church. Excellent symmetrical composition, nice colours, nice lights. The presence of this lone praying man makes it more interesting.
Warm regrads Malgo
ourania (21360) 2014-02-18 10:15
a very successful symmetrical composition that doesn't make the symmetry look forced. You have placed the perspectives very well in the frame and considered the background carefully, so there's great balance and the view looks natural, interesting and pleasing. We can observe lovely architectural and decorative details, the diffused light and the colours convey an agreeable calmness. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great evening,
