My previous upload presented one of the most typical views from Poland. So here for a change something off the beaten track: This picture shows the main altar in the Holy Family Church in my home town Tarnow. The church itself was already several times presented on TrekEarth. I have a great sentiment for this interior as I have spent there many hours on prayer. Diocese of Tarnow is one of the most religious in Poland and to my knowledge in the whole world. For example, it produces the highest number of Catholic priests in the world.
While taking this photo I was in the middle of the Presbytery. My first idea was to focus on the main altar to demonstrate its rich decoration but then I decided to include some context as well as I found it not less interesting. In the very centre of the altar you can see the Holy Family with Jesus being a teenager. Left and right there are two Patron saints of Poland, both Bishops. In the left: St. Adalbert (sw. Wojciech) and in the right St. Stanislaus of Szczepanow (sw. Stanislaw). At the very top there is a sculpture presenting Holy Trinity at the moment of crucifixion. At the very bottom the Last Supper.

piekny oltarz. Te strzeliste gotyckie detale przyciagaja uwage. Swieta Rodzina w centrum, nazwa adekwatna do tego co widzimy. Ladne symetryczne ujecie. HDR (jesli sie nie myle) zrownowazyl kontrasty. Dobra nota i jakosc zdjecia.

Quelle belle réussite que cette photo d'intérieur. Le cadrage vertical donne de l'ampleur et aussi le plaisir de voir ce plafond monumental. L'autel est de toute beauté ainsi que les couleurs sur les murs. La lumière est divine.

What a wonderful shot of this interior, the elements are rich in color and design, and everything seems to reach up into the heavens. The light pouring through the windows is really like something from another world, and perfectly apt for this place. You managed that light so well too, as it looks like it was quite difficult. A perfect symmetrical composition.
All the best

una ottima ripresa dalla composizione perfetta e dal taglio indovinato che valorizza ottimamente il soggetto.
Ottimo il colore come eccellente la nitidezza e molto ben curato il contrasto.
Un'altro dei tuoi ottimi lavori.
Ciao e buona serata

Hi Bonsior dear Mariusz, how are you?
Oh great shot, I have lost my words at a glance of this fantatsic light and color controled image. Very very wonderful shot with so solemn atmosphere. Congratulation on your supper work!
Thanks a lot and have a good day! I am still one the way of trip, Takero

Apart from intricate highlights registered, you have managed the light skilfully for there's a pleasant overall exposure achieved even the windows being the brightest part is not blown off. Aptly formatted as the vertical and view point extend the sense of depth and height of the space and packed by soothing colours and contrast. Your usual pp treatment is applauded. This is extremely pleasant to the eyes, a standout shot without doubt eflawlessly, a quality image. Congrats, TFS

Dobrze zrobione zdjęcie wnetrza kościoła i to ładnego. Dobrze dobrana ekspozycja mimo jasnego swiatła wpadajacego z okien i ciemnoego wnetrza. Ładne kolory widac dużą ilośc szczegółów i dobra notka.

wow, lots going on in this little space isn't there.
and its nice to know there is an emotional connection to the subject - that always makes it more special.
and good on ya for using a tripod! haha
was it really bright outside? mid day? the sunlight is really peeking through the windows, so I'm not sure what you could have done to balance that, probably impossible.
but looking every where else the sharpness and details are true and clear. the compo is well thought out as always, and its straight!
very fine indoor shot my friend
see you around

Excellent details interior shot, I guess with the tripod, it allows you much better quality and color. So much detials on the alter and the decoration with all the decorations. The light give the whole area a growing atmosphere.

Not easy for take through the two white windows in background.
But you makes here a wonderful interior picture with a lovely altar in background.
Panoramic view with depth and perspective.
Sharpness and clarity make these picture very attractive
Very well composition, TFS.
