Side Chapel - vaulting.
Gniezno is a city in central-western Poland, some 50 km east of Poznań, inhabited by about 70,000 people. One of the Piasts' chief cities, it was mentioned by 10th century A.D. sources as the capital of Piast Poland (in Dagome Iudex) however the first capital of Piast realm was most likely Giecz built around 840s A.D. Its Roman Catholic archbishop, the Archbishop of Gniezno, is the Primate of Poland. These historical facts make its position in Polish history similar to Canterbury or Rheims.
Gniezno is located in the Greater Poland Voivodeship. The city is the administrative capital of the Gniezno County.
The Cathedral Basilica of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary and St. Adalbert is a Gothic cathedral in Gniezno, Poland. The Cathedral is known for its twelfth-century (ca. 1175), two-winged bronze doors decorated with scenes of martyrdom of St. Wojciech and a silver relic coffin of that saint. The coffin was made by Peter von der Rennen of pure silver in 1662 after the previous one (established in 1623 by King Sigismund III Vasa) was robbed by the Swedes in 1655, during the Deluge.

Superb this great catch up, I guess complain of neck posture.
Ideal shown how well the oval ceiling with paint, wonderful decorations we see in the image.
Sensational this palette.
Perfect both the brightness, sharpness as good.
Enjoy the weekend.

una bella foto di un soggetto tutt'altro che facile e solitamenmte anche di scarso successo.
Ritengo che sia pił che giusto premiare la tua fatica e personalmente ti faccio i miei complimenti per l'ottima composizione perfettamente centrata nel fotogramma, per la nitidezza e per il coloree molto ben riportato.
Un bravo ed un grazie per averlo condiviso con noi tutti.
Ciao e buon fine settimana

The well taken highly decorative and delicate vault seen from low pov is indeed a great effort and vision. There's a sense of depth in it with the catchy stained glass panels to attract the eyes. A fine shot, good clarity, coloring and contrast. Well done, TFS

Piękny temat, który zachwyca każdym swoim detalem. Dobra symetryczna kompozycja. Zastanawiam się, czy próbowałeś ją obrócić o 90 stopni, aby ułatwić oglądanie malowidła na suficie. Myślę, że wówczas efekt byłby lepszy - ale to oczywiście tylko moje zdanie.

Strong light, but yet you managed to bring out the detsils of the vaulted ceiling well, of the lovely painting & the fine symmetrical view that we see here. Very nice!
