The Cathedral of Our Lady is a Roman Catholic cathedral in Antwerpen. Today's see of the Diocese of Antwerp was started in 1352 and, although the first stage of construction was ended in 1521, has never been 'completed'. In Gothic style, its architects were Jan and Pieter Appelmans. It contains a number of significant works by the Baroque painter Peter Paul Rubens, as well as paintings by artists such as Otto van Veen, Jacob de Backer and Marten de Vos.
The cathedral is on the list of World Heritage Sites. More on: Wikipedia

Une contre plongée des plus efficaces. J'aime la grande symétrie de cette photo et la très bonne gestion de l'espace et de la lumière.

idea brillante per una composizione interessante, con l'arco a dividere i due tipi di architettura.
Come sempre un ottimo controllo della luce per un effetto elegante e piacevole.
Buon fine settimana

Hi dear Malgorzata
Wow intersting and also fashinating shot!
Nice attention and idea you have!
I have an illusion that I will be involved in this shot. Best cropped framework and sharp image as usual.
Thanks for your sharing, and have a good weekend!

Those pictures of magnificent ceilings are truly wonderful!
Sharpness, exposure, colors, chosen pov, horizontal format and composition are all oustanding photo features!
TFS - congrats,

Ta série de photos de plafonds d'églises est très réussie et originale. Le cadrage de cette photo est excellent et donne une vision inhabituelle du bâtiment. Belle maitrise de la lumière également.
baddori (20161) 2012-06-15 23:15
Una carrellata dei migliori soffitti.
Purtroppo si guarda basso ed il fotografo di classe guarda alto .
La definizione e penso un cavalletto ..
Un effetto 3D in questa foto
Grande e brava .

Bonjour, chère Malgo,
Magnificence des cathédrales, des bâtisseurs d'excellence à travers cette superbe prise de vue.
Exercice difficile à réaliser.
Un mot suffira : Superbe !
Très bonne journée.

Your new hobby is to visit and take pictures of the churches ceiling. In this one, we can admire the delicate work of the men after the conception of cathedral and think how difficult it have been to built them in these days.

Your "ceilings set" is a new and interesting departure, and shows us a different take on architecture. Beware of a stiff neck!
vrabieionut (2189) 2012-06-17 1:09
What a superb POV and perspective with excellent simmetry.Well composed.
Have a nice Sunday,

Witaj dear Malgorzata
This is a sensational shot, with incredible symmetry, shapes and colours. You have composed it exquisitely and handled the different levels of light exquisitely. What a pleasure to view. It's truly amazing, as have been your recent series of photos. Congratulations, this is spectacular.
ChrisJ (118895) 2012-06-17 18:02
Another good upward pov in this superb architectural shot. Good sharpness & excellent colour & saturation. The perspective & distortion have nee well managed. I like the diagonal lines starting & finishing in the 4 corners. The circular fresco makes a fine focal point at the vanishing point. Tfs!

this is another interesting image of the ceiling, details are excellent as well as the light management, it's an eye catching series,
nikkitta (17068) 2012-06-18 15:41
Impressive details of the dome captured with good light and perfect symmetry and great technique
I always like to watch upwards but to take a photo is quite different, the neck:)))
Greetings and congrats
Nard (6972) 2012-06-19 5:09
Another excellent POV giving an impressive and beautiful picture. The quality of the picture, light management and sharpness are very good and allows us to catch all the details and to feel the texture of the stones.
SWEETFREEDOM (24621) 2012-06-23 5:07
amazing ceiling, great details, light and colors.
adores (46417) 2012-06-23 19:04
I also like this one a lot! Original and great composition! I like the way you framed the ceiling and light, colours and sharpness seem very good also!
ourania (51103) 2012-06-29 2:02
the architecture is exquisite and fascinating and your photo is a brilliant piece of art as well. I love the way you read the architecture and chose a wonderful, artistic and comprehensive point of view for your composition. Sharpness and depth are superb and contribute greatly to the wonderment this upward view evokes. The interaction of architectural elements and patterns, the smooth or bold play of light and tones all over the intriguing frame are really captivating. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a good day,
Noel_Byrne (33726) 2012-07-30 5:38
What a beautiful, delicate piece of art and architecture. The upwards POV brings a wonderful element of height and the focal point of the painting is perfect.
