Sistine Chapel (Latin: Sacellum Sixtinum; Italian: Cappella Sistina) is the best-known chapel in the Apostolic Palace, the official residence of the Pope in the Vatican City. It is famous for its architecture and its decoration that was frescoed throughout by Renaissance artists including Michelangelo, Sandro Botticelli, Pietro Perugino, Pinturicchio and others. Under the patronage of Pope Julius II, Michelangelo painted 1,100 m2 (12,000 sq ft) of the chapel ceiling between 1508 and 1512. The ceiling, and especially The Last Judgment (1535–1541), is widely believed to be Michelangelo's crowning achievement in painting.

Hi Stathis. Very nice capture of the Sistine Chapel. It is amazing you could get this clear picture with so few people around, since generally is so crowdy there. Good sharpness and beautiful colours too.

You've photographed the magnificent chapel with excellent light management. The very wide lens you've used caused a little too much distortion. If you don't mind, I am going to offer a ws. Warm regards,

Not an easy shot but very well managed to provide sharp details and a sense of atmosphere.
Bulent's w/s addresses the distortion nicely.
Have a good w/e,
