Cathedral of The Holy Cross in Opole.
The oldest mention of the church dates back to 1223. The first gothic church was established in 1295, but it was destroyed in a fire in 1415, the city lacked the money to rebuild, and in 1470 was built the church, which has survived to this day, over centuries it has been expanded and many changes were made. The church has a baroque furniture, but beautiful Gothic vaults survived to this day. In the picture you can see the ceiling of the central nave.

Good choice of upward pointing POV to present the magnificent architecture on these high ceilings. Looks really imposing and grand. Beautiful view of majestic interiors of this Church. Thanks for sharing.

rewelacja pod kazdym wzgledem!
Architektura i te sklepienia robia wrazenie,ale dla mnie to symetria i mocna,wyrazista grafika zdjecia sa tym,co przykuwa moja uwage najbardziej i co stanowi o wyjatkowosci twojej kompozycji.

a beautiful and imposing shot this. A real sense of the height and amazing symmetry of this roof. Love the geometry here too, it is both compelling and elegantly wonderful.
Enjoy a good week - B.

A fine viewpoint emphasises the elevation, by the tall arches and leads naturally to the flowing ceiling patterns. A fine symmetrical composition.
My warm regards,

This is a very beautiful indoor capture with your dramatic pov and the way it plays with the surroundings structures. This makes for a very great image
for it looks so luminous and the wide dof works well here. Wonderful shot, TFS.

A fantastic, upward pov with good sharpness and symmetry. I like the repetition of the vaulted arches in the ceiling. The muted colours work well here. The Crucifixion scene makes a fine focal point. Excellent diminishing linear perspective. Have a nice week!
