With this shot I'm starting a brand new theme of the awesome ceilings I've seen during my visit in Belgium.
The gothic Saint Paul's Church with baroque spire is one of the finest Antwerp churches. The church was built in 1571 by a Dominican order as a replacement for a previous small church, which was built in 1276. In 1679, fire destroyed much of the church and the tower was rebuilt. During the French revolution, the church's many paintings were stolen by the French, but they were returned after the revolution in 1815. The church was damaged again during the Belgian revolution in 1830 and the last disaster struck in 1968, when a fire destroyed the roof of the church and much of the interior. Fortunately much of the interior was saved by passers-by or people living nearby. It took almost 20 years to restore the building's roof, but currently the church is back in good shape.

You have very well managed the centering of the shape in this picture,which is not that easy if you're not laying down with your back on the floor!
Light beautiful too...You make me discover a place I didn't know yet...good trip idea for next W.E.,,thank you !
Have a nice day,

Stunning photograph! The strong sense of balance and symmetry is well evident in this photo, not only that, even the exposition is superbly managed! Bravo!

Hello Malgorzata - I have a particular liking for white on white images and this one is really lovely. The architectural details are delicate and very well captured with excellent light management. The areas of shade give a good feel for the 3D nature of the ceiling. A decorative and very successful shot. Warm regards rosemary
PecoBud (3824) 2012-06-11 8:34
WOW, I felt like I was going to fall out of my chair when I saw this picture. Masterfully presented with extreme clarity and outstanding light management. Soft and pleasant colors blending with the light has enhanced your POV here. I like your idea to start a series of beautiful ceilings, can't wait to see what you post next, great job Malgo!!
TFS..........Your Friend from California.........Buddy
sacimar (25975) 2012-06-11 9:40
this ceiling is impressive, the image is excellent with good details, I like the perfect perspective you got, well done,
BennyV (13846) 2012-06-11 10:00
Wow, this shot manages to surprise even me! I know my hometown really well, but still I'm surprised here by how clean the ceiling is. It's been a long time since I visited St Paul's, which is: from before the restauration. In other words: I should step in, next time I pass there (which won't be long).
Thanks a lot & I hope you enjoyed Antwerp!
patdeph (35748) 2012-06-11 10:59
this ceiling is very beautiful, It's perfctly framed, and the light superbly managed, enhancing its whiteness.Magnificent!

devo dire che le donne stanno offrendo delle vere e proprie opere d'arte.
Questa foto ne è una ulteriore testimonianza, tutte foto molto belle che nascono da idee originali e molto buon gusto.
divail (8330) 2012-06-11 19:39
C'est un plafond qui semble léger comme un nuage. Le blanc lui donne en effet une légèreté et une pureté incroyable. Le graphisme est également très réussi. J'adore les plafonds et celui-ci est exceptionnel.

Magnificent effect and geometry.
I think you placed the camera on the floor and made it with the self-shoot. Right ?
Bluejeans (64249) 2012-06-12 5:31

yquem46 (38746) 2012-06-12 10:08
An impressive ceiling
Nicely shot with perfect symmetry for a high visual impact
Excellent quality, except for the slight green fringes on the windows, to be nitpicking !
Have a nice evening

un superbe plafond d'eglise...
une balance des blancs exemplaire...

Nice POV and good colors.Have a nice day.
josepmarin (57823) 2012-06-12 12:51
It seems we have had the same idea on to take this kind of photo, and also on presenting it here the same day.
I like the graphism of the ceiling in this church, with its elegant beauty and its soft colors.
The low-angle shot is perfectly executed, and the composition is magnificent.
A superb work.
dip (23632) 2012-06-12 13:11
beautiful and interesting details of the church,
I like the chosen vertical POV,
excellent management of light as well,
adramad (38573) 2012-06-12 15:34
Superb composition, where the neck reached its limit, but the picture was worth, the beautiful roof seems to float in an aura of light from the windows, is a beautiful and original composition. Good management of the intense light, the soft colors are delicious.
Have a nice day.
danos (87505) 2012-06-13 0:54
what a great and spectacular ceiling is this!
Great presentation with the light and the colour management to brings out the details and the beauty of the ceiling with the optical created effect to be unique.
Have a good day,Danos

very fascinating mixture of lines, very captivating composition. Beautiful.
baddori (19963) 2012-06-13 3:12
Ti stavo scrivendo stamani, ma poi non avevo smiles.
Amo i soffitti delle grandi chiese..ma per pigrizia non scatto .
Questo è particolare, un bianco crema , una trasparenza come di ceramica fine (Limoges) un ombreggio delicato una struttura con armoniose geometrie.
romanaa (7966) 2012-06-13 8:06
it looks lake a lace on a bridal dress. Stunning. Perfect exposure in difficult light conditions.
janneman (2590) 2012-06-13 8:25
Beautiful composition and pov.
Alle the whites and the soft light are wonderful
A favorite to me!!
ChrisJ (99304) 2012-06-13 9:55
A stunning straight upward pov with good sharpness & excellent framing and management of perspective. I like the repetition of all the little gold stars. Superb graphism & shadow detail. Tfs!
Hansaphotos (6903) 2012-06-13 10:45
An excellent capture of this ceiling. A great indoor shot. A fine vertical composition that show us splendid details of the ceiling. Lovely soft colours and very well managed light. Beautiful work:) TFS. Have a nice evening.
Best regards, Erling
macjake (57074) 2012-06-14 8:25
always a pleasure to view your architecture!
this looks like the underside of a centipede :)
and if you move it quickly up and down the screen, its as if its walking :) :)
lovely colors, all the white and cream colors are so unique.
its a wonderful capture!
Cricri (107306) 2012-06-14 10:34
Bravo pour le cadrage, la lumière, les couleurs douces, les détails, c'est très joli, si ce n'était pas le plafond d'une église je dirais qu'il y a un air de romantisme!!
bartekp (4746) 2012-06-14 12:16
Fantasytyczn akompozycja, na jak szerokie ujecia pozwala ta sigma.
Ładnie skomponowane i świetnie doświetlone.

Nice symmetry and beautiful lines in this bright photo. Well captured!
adores (37601) 2012-06-20 18:03
This ceiling really deserves a good photo!- I like all this whiteness with the little golden stars. Your pov and the exposure are great - even with those windows you managed very well! Good work!
Didi (57256) 2012-06-23 18:43
were you lying on the floor? :)
Interesting high key composition without over exposure
Very nice picture indeed
tatadalou (6341) 2012-06-25 15:22
I've seen you've got a nice collection of ceilings in your gallery. I love this kind of views, so vertiginous ! This is the one I prefer. All white and very luminous. Perfect symmetry.
Tigerlily (3107) 2012-06-29 10:07
Superbly captured image, beautifully done..great light management, fine detail...Excellent!
sevy (15365) 2012-07-02 5:24
AS you should have noticed, I like the architectur shot and I can say my eye were caught by this one. Very good management of the framing with a full centered shot giving a strong impact of the symetry of this roof.
Moreover, I like the setting choice toward bright tonalities. A piece of Eden?
broglia (3598) 2012-07-07 11:07
A stunning shot Malgorzata. The lighting and symmetry are just perfect. Beautiful tones throughout.
agjika (3616) 2012-07-09 16:11
This is a very elegant photo of a very elegant church celing. Beautiful tones and symetry. Your photo really does justice to this excellent edifice. The light is gorgeous and the graphism astonishing.
Very well done
