This photo was taken after mass at the Co-Cathedral of St John the Baptist. There was incense burning and this gave the church a moody quality.
Note that after some very helpful suggestions I have workshopped the photo a little. See this link: http://www.trekearth.com/images/photos/3556/st_john_cathedral_interior.jpg
Due to the absence of light, and of a tripod, I sat the camera on a chair. Fortunately because of the layout of the church - chairs and no pews - made this easier than usual.

Nice theme difficult to get! the pic needs more saturation to improuve the color and the light.
Any way is an inderesting pic!

This is a nice photo. You captured the light streaming through the smoke very well. The people at the front add a good sense of scale. Without them I'd have thought the building was much larger than it apparently is. However, I agree with the need for more saturation it is also overexposed on the ceiling. Still, a good job in difficult conditions.
