The columns of the interior are a unique Gaudí design. Besides branching to support their load, their ever-changing surfaces are the result of the intersection of various geometric forms. The simplest example is that of a square base evolving into an octagon as the column rises, then a sixteen-sided form, and eventually to a circle. This effect is the result of a three-dimensional intersection of helicoidal columns (for example a square cross-section column twisting clockwise and a similar one twisting counter-clockwise).

Effective format and well presented. Good composition and light management. Including the people is essential and well chosen.

These soaring columns with their interesting shapes are indeed very impressive. The visitors offer a us a good sense of scale. I like the use of the bookmark format format to emphasise the height and the agreeable lighting.

In this small detail, one can imagine perfectly the majestuosity of the church. I like your POV very much!
krzychu30 (15512) 2012-12-16 8:08
just like your title says-Impressive,isn´t it?Love the perspective you chose to depict the height of this colonnade.Superb composition.What kind of lens did you use?
holmertz (56143) 2012-12-16 8:08
Yes, this is truly impressive. I was amazed already when seeing just the upper part of the picture, and even more so when I scrolled down and discovered the people at the bottom. Your note also gives us good information on this magnificent church. From this POV we get a good idea of the ingenious architecture. I don't think I ever saw an interior of the Sagarada Familia before. The light seems to be a lot better than I had expected.

il me semble que Barcelone est à l'honneur en ce moment sur TE...et il est vrai que c'est une superbe ville pour les photographe...
La Sagrada est vraiment extraordianire et on voit bien sur ta photo ô combien elle est photogenique!

Before TE, I never knew of this amazing church. And now I see it all the time. But your photo is different from the usual ones we see. I like the bookmark cut which accentuates the vertical perspective of Gaudi's design. The image is superbly exposed and beautifully sharp. Well done.

J'aime la composition étroite et haute, qui met bien les énormes colonnes en valeur. Ces touristes ont bien de la chance.

Le format marque-pages renforce la sensation de hauteur de cet étonnant intérieur de la Sagrada Familia.

adramad (47650) 2012-12-17 7:36
Superb this long vertical composition, allowing us to see the beauty and great height of the columns of the temple, the presence of people, serves well to give us the proportions of the place.
Very good sharpness and brightness.
Have a nice day.

Gigidusud (21191) 2012-12-18 11:16
Wow!Impressive shot to Sagrada Familia.Original view on this beautiful church.Well done!
abmdsudi (56302) 2012-12-19 3:54
This is your kind of shot, you have made used of the limited space in his slim vertical format efficiently to capitalise on the beauty of this famous interior icon. The perspective and viewpoint ensure the eyes is focus in firmly and aided by the array of colors, strong lines enhancing the height and depth of this magnificent interior architecture. So pleasant to view, a simply graceful shot! Congrats, TFS
macjake (70519) 2012-12-21 1:02
so these are the famous interior walls of this famous Cathedral in Barcelona!
I think this is the first time I've ever seen a photo of them taken from a distance.
In this format, we can feel the granduer and power of the columns, especially with the small people beside them.

The most I see shots of this famous church, the most I enjoy it and I wish to visit it to take shots.
I like the use of wide angle and the final crop in vertical panorama. It is really sharing the heigh of this place, helped by the tiny people like ants on the ground to give the scale.

unique Gaudi design, magnificent architecture and elegance, beautiful picture!

Hi Adrian !!
everything about this photo is " clever "..... you are maximazing the effect of the vertical columns by presenting them in such a narrow format.
clever.....very clever..... and very nice.
Cheers from Australia.
