Walking around the Holy Trinity chapel after visiting its nice interior we found this little room, wich is
the chapel "miracle room".
I mentioned on my first post of this travelogue that the chapel is also a pilgrimage center. During the religious festivity of the Eternal Father in may/june some pilgrims offer a picture of their loved ones asking for miracles or expressing their gratitude for the grace received. All these "relics" as we call in Brazil(keepsake) are displayed in this little room outside the chapel.
This kind of relics room can be seem in many pilgrimage places in Brazil, being part of the strong catolic faith istill very present on the small vilages.
I found the subject very atractive, but difficult to photograph. I tried different angles and I guess this was the best I could get. Any advice? Ideas?
The picture had level adjusted and contrast enhanced. Frame added.
I posted a workshop answering to some comments. This POV shows only the pictures. I hope you'll enjoy.
If you are interested to see the exterior of the chapel check

I first wondered why you have this empty space on the right, but I think it was a good idea. It adds something to the picture. You should have cropped away the door handle (?) on the very right edge though.

Well thought and well composed photo.
I like your note, too.

I really like this photo. I like the feeling of memories you get when you are looking at an old family photo album. I would be interested in seeing what it would look like as just photos, closer in cropped tighter. But I like the fact that it is in a room and you have your story added. Well Done!@

Oi, Flavia! Foto impressionante, pois traduz bem o "clima" da "sala dos milagres". Eu talvez cortasse a maior parte do lado direito, dando mais destaque à parede coberta de fotos. Entretanto, é apenas um ponto de vista, que não diminui a qualidade do trabalho, que me parece muito bom. Parabéns! Miguel.

Well, surely this wall speaks a lot of word and reflexes the years of bygone.
A good composition with remarkable text accompanied, Flavia.
Well done and TFS.

The image may have been better presented as a vertical rather than a horizontal due to the vertical board that the relics-photos are mounted.

Hi Flavia, an unusual, and very beautiful, shot of shots!
excellent composition with that large part in the dark, a small noise effect and saturated colours.
good note too.
thanks, and have a nice w.e.

Fotografia bem sacada, muito bem executata principalmente nos quesitos enquadramento e luz. Gostei! Excelente trabalho, Flávia.

Ótima foto. Tem uma curiosa tonalidade, que é valorizada pela moldura escolhida. Bom trabalho! Abraço. Apa.
