St. Jean Marc Church in Byblos. In the WS a view from outside.
Byblos is located on the Mediterranean coast of Lebanon, about 26 miles (42 kilometers) north of Beirut. It is attractive to archaeologists because of the successive layers of debris resulting from centuries of human habitation. In 1860, the French writer, Ernest Renan carried out an excavation here, but systematic archaeological investigation did not take place until the 1920s.

Light is a great part in the volumed view here and this is well done.
This is a great church and certainlyu a great place in Lebanon as i see the outside you show in WS.
The style of this place is very tight to some south of France Middle aged Places.
I like the stones here and these colors

Achim, c'est une photo d'intérieur d'église très réusie. La lumière est bien maîtrisée et l'architecture romane est bien mise en valeur. Quand on voit l'extérieur, on comprend que c'est une très belle architecture.

Hi, Achim. I like the warm tones you've captured in this photo. The stones used to buikd the church are really impressive and, with the WS, this picture gives us some very interesting information about the church. Maybe I'd have moved a little to the right to have a more symmetrical view, but maybe yoy had good reasons not to do so...

Hallo Achim. Eine gut gelungene Innenaufnahme dieser schönen Kirche - die Belichtung ist äußerst ausgewogen, um die aus der Mischung von elektrischer Innenbeleuchtung und Tageslicht entstehende Atmosphäre wiederzugeben. Gute Farbdarstellung, und schöne Konturen in der steinernen Wand. Der WS ist eine gute Ergänzung, um die Architektur dieser Kirche noch besser zu verstehen. Gut gemacht.

I appreciate much the angle of sight of the photograph and the beautiful light which emphasizes well the architecture of the places and the inheritance that it holds. Clearness is very pleasant and gives value to the compostion. An image and a quite interesting note, cheer Achim.
With my all friendships,

A photo with great light control, nice colors and the frame is also very good.

delicious interior. Fanstastic light and composition.

Hi JFK, your shot is an archeological piece itself with different layers of mankinds history being illustrated. The osldest layer is definitively the nicely textured walls and the youngest layer is the microfone. I alway swonder about the latter element in these old churches. Usually the acoustics are vey good and people prayed for centuries without amplifiyers. Why on earth do they need it know?
Great management of the light conditions!

Amazing shot, Achim. The vivid details are really nice. Nice lighting and DEP.
Very well done.

Nice inside picture Achim with warm colors, excellent point of view and perspective, very well done !

Great golden light for the inside shot. I suppose it was hard to shoot and you did it well. You have captured the spirit of the place. Well done.
parbo (11092) 2007-02-01 21:06
This geography is keeping a lot beauty. Thank you very much for showing us this wonderful church and its excellently illuminated interior. Your lens did an excellent job while adding whole view of part without any error. I like great effect of illumination and stone textures a lot too. Your workshop photo is a good guide for its outside view. Congratulations.

I know that is really difficult to get a good photo inside of a church, because of the lights... not good at all.
But you have a good one here.
Maybe I would have move a little to the right, but still, is a good one.
Emile (20352) 2007-02-02 16:09

Hello Achim, excellent capture of this interesting interior. Great perspective and management of light. Love the textures and the framing, although a bit to the right would be perfect.
Thanks for the complementar one in ws. Good note as well.

Hello Mr President
Interesting composition on this church. I note a good control of the lights exposure. The warm colors are very appreciable. To correct the perspective deformation of prospect I have done a WS.
