The interior of this impressive Roman Catholic Church in Beyoglu taken yesterday. From 'My destination.com':
"St. Anthony of Padua Cathedral, also known in Italian as Sant'Antonio di Padova Cathedral, St. Antoine, or Sent Antuan in Turkey, dates to 1912. This red-brick Venetian neo-gothic building is situated on Istanbul’s busiest pedestrian street, Istiklal Street. It is the largest Roman Catholic cathedral in Istanbul and one of the most important in the city.
The first Franciscan church in Istanbul was built in the 1306 in nearby Galata, though centuries later this was converted into a mosque. A new church dedicated to Saint Anthony was erected in 1724 but was demolished in 1904 to make way for the city’s tram line. After years of interruptions and financial problems, the St. Anthony’s Cathedral of today was completed in 1911 and opened for worship in 1912.
The Cathedral was designed by Istanbul-born Italian architect Giulio Mongeri, who was also responsible for the design of other important buildings in Turkey such as Macka Palas and the Karakoy Palas bank building."
I've increased contrast & saturation a little and dodged the shadows at the top. The cp filter was removed on account of the low light levels.

J'aime beaucoup cette contre plongée qui nous offre une perspective étonnante sur ce superbe plafond. Une impression de hauteur et d'ampleur impressionnante que j'aime beaucoup. Une grande netteté et une belle gestion de la lumière.

The tight frame is putting this section of the cathedral in evidence. The point of view is showing with precision the details, the colours of the ceiling and of the pillars of the cathedral. The surrounding light has a good effect on the colours. Have a nice day.

Hello Chris - This is a beautiful shot. Clean and crisp, the details are finely captured. I note the 3D quality created by the light and layers in the shot, you have managed to convey form and volume very well. Nicely managed, I like this a lot.
Warm regards Rosemary

Hello dear Chris,
Very nice capture of this famous catholic church on Pera. But a minimal correction it's not in Taksim but in Galatasaray.
The one in Taksim is a Greek orhodox church.
This one here is most probably visited by more muslims than christians, asit has a wonderfull position on Pera and an inviting fassade.
Normally people ar efocused mainly to the altar but you've seen also the beauty of this columns and arcades.
Interesting notes as well.
TFS and have a nice weekend

I'm delighted to see an interior shoto and read about this edifice that I had walked by so many times. Excellent architectural shot of the century old building, and posted the same day that it was produced (there is a 10 hour difference between Istanbul and the US West Coast where Trekearth appears to be located).
Incidentally, my talk in Istanbul has been scheduled for Friday April 18... if you can get away. I thought I would notify other friends in Istanbul.
Warm regards and enjoy the weekend,

I didn't even know of this church...
The pillars provide a good perspective leading to the colorful vaulted ceiling. Good handling of the exposure to show all the details well
ikeharel (70743) 2014-03-18 9:03
Wonderful view upwards onto the archs and blue colored ceiling, Chris.
The pillars "crowed" with a beautiful carved elements, and I like most the "clean" outlines we see indoor's.
Fine light management, and good sharpness.
