I do not know why exactly but I found it difficult to make photos inside the Seville Cathedral. Probably other people find it also as there are not many photos on TE. Cathedral is very big, according to some measurements maybe the largest in the world, but being inside, I had not this impression. According to local oral tradition, the members of the cathedral chapter said: "Hagamos una Iglesia tan hermosa y tan grandiosa que los que la vieren labrada nos tengan por locos" ("Let us build a church so beautiful and so grand that those who see it finished will think we are mad").
The Cathedral of Saint Mary of the See (Spanish: Catedral de Santa María de la Sede), better known as Seville Cathedral, is a Roman Catholic cathedral in Seville (Andalusia, Spain). It is the largest Gothic cathedral and the third-largest church in the world. It is also the largest cathedral in the world, as the two larger churches, the Basilica of the National Shrine of Our Lady of Aparecida and St Peter's Basilica, are not the seats of bishops. It was registered in 1987 by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site, along with the Alcázar palace complex and the General Archive of the Indies.
After its completion in the early 16th century, the Seville Cathedral supplanted Hagia Sophia as the largest cathedral in the world, a title the Byzantine church had held for nearly a thousand years.

We also had the same problem when we visited all those years ago. Apart from being quite dark like most churches and cathedrals, I found it difficult to get to grips with, maybe on account of the shear size. This is certainly an excellent capture of this magnificently decorated ceiling. I like very much the symmetrical framing. Exposure is spot on; colours and detail are superb. Did you climb to the top of the Giralda?

Tu as trouvé le point focal parfait dans ce superbe dôme doré. L'ensemble est d'une très belle symétrie et on ne peut qu'apprécier la qualité des détails.

Zawsze w kościołach jest problem z niejednakowym oświetleniem, z jednej strony jest więcej słońca, ale wnętrze wyszło doskonale, pięknie, symetrycznie pokazana kopuła

Malgo, this is one of my favorite Cathedrals in Spain..and I've visited many from north to south..la Catedral de Santa Naria de la Sede is a unique example of art and history combined!
your point of view and the light are superb!!

Intéressant cadrage serré sur le plafond de cette cathédrale de Séville.

bella la tua inquadratura, la curvatura della cupola è perfettamente riproposta insieme ai magnifici particolari delle opere che la addobbano.
Mi piace questo colore caldo e il punto luce che irrompe nell'immagine.
Buona domenica (qui fa caldissimo e andiamo al mare)
PS non devi invidiare Rosemary, devi venire qui come ti ho già detto

I do not know if the original Seville Cathedral creators were "mad", but they certainly were unique in their artistic endeavors as shown in your image of the inside of the grand dome. Perhaps to encourage visitors to raise their eyes heavenwards? The complex and detailed religious scenes in base relief are impressive. Then higher up,the rose stain glass windows, paintings, and the geometric rectangles going on.
Thanks for sharing,

Juz nie pierwszy raz piszesz, ze trudno jest robic zdjecia w Sewilskiej katedrze, ale twoje fotki bardzo mi sie podobaja. W tym np. widze dobra graficzna, symetryczna kompozycje. Zlote odcienie bardzo ladnie prezentuja sie w tonacji low key.

Patrzac na Twoje zdjecie nigdy bym sie nie domyslila, ze fotografowanie katedry moglo sprawic jakies trudnosci. Faktycznie jest to imponujace wnetrze, coz za bogactwo szczegolow! Super kadr - uchwycilas majestat budowli, w bardzo elegancki sposob.

this one stood out for me in your gallery :)
you mentioned you had a hard time taking photos in here. I find it difficult inside most of these domes and cathedrals..the lighting is often so poor.
but it looks like you got yourself alot of light and colors turned out pretty darn well.
same with the details. don't be too hard on yourself with this one!

Really beautiful and you managed light so well. I like the details and the painting in the centre.
