At Santa Caterina del Sasso, a monestry from the 13th century wonderful situated in the rocks at the Lago Maggiore. Worth vissiting!!
The whole place is so picturesque that I made many pictures there.
Here you see an impression of the atmosphere in the little chappel.

Interesting POV, Albrecht
The DOF is unusable for this church but is original thatís for sure
I think including the candles in it is very good so it looks like it is in a chapel
Composition and lighting is very good

In this case I love the shallow depth of field making
the shot like an Icon of the faith. You really capture the right atmosphere with these warm colors.

Origional idea for a photo.
But.. you ended up in the midle. Both subjects are out of focus.
Never mind next time better.

A fine atmosphere you created, I like the softness that you maintained, indeed too much sharpness would suppres this feeling with the great coloring and good DOF with the suggestive background ... degustibus ....
Fine work Albrecht

Dit vind ik zeer fijn deze godslamp in de scherpte te plaatsen en met een blur achtergrond te werken, fijn gezien van u. Niets is hier overdreven, net voldoende om alles echt te laten overkomen.
Goed werk en mooi weekend gewenst,

Hi Albrecht, Nice use th the DoF in this case, the statue is very present anyway due to the warm color. I really like the focus on the lamp here. Nice PoV as well, taken a littel bit from down under

nice picture, the contrast between the statue and the candle in sharpness and in light generates a very interesting perspective

Very nice perspective. You, sure, have got the atmosphere of the chappel. I like your composition.

Hi Albrecht,nice idea and great shot,good DOF
but i think it was better if the back object was complete.
thanks for sharing.

Excellent use of the DOF. I like how this works by bringing some mystery to the place, teasing us to wish to see more, as the background is surely stunning. Very clever composition.
The mild light and soft colors are great and I like a lot its delicate feeling.

Another beautiful photo...I have to say, I've taken a look at quite a few in your portfolio and have a hard time choosing those to comment- I like them all. But this one's has this peaceful atmosphere of chappels which you can only feel when you're alone inside for a little while. The compositon and depth of view are again excellent!Cogratulations.
