-i hope i catched a little bit of the beauty "La Sagrada Familia"Barcelona -this is from a presentation site :
"La Sagrada Familia is truly awe-inspiring - even if you don't have much time, don't miss it.
The life's work of Barcelona's favourite son, Antoni Gaudí, the magnificent spires of the unfinished cathedral imprint themselves boldly against the sky with swelling outlines inspired by the holy mountain Montserrat. They are encrusted with a tangle of sculptures that seem to breathe life into the stone. Gaudí died in 1926 before his masterwork was completed, and since then, controversy has continually dogged the building program. Nevertheless, the southwestern (Passion) facade, with four more towers, is almost done, and the nave, begun in 1978, is progressing. Some say the shell should have been left as a monument to the architect, but today's chief architect, Jordi Bonet, argues that the task is a sacred one, as it's a church intended to atone for sin and appeal to God's mercy on Cataluny

I like this POV, composition, details and exposure. I wished you could have written a little note about this work of art ;) This is very nice with nice colors and contrast. Thanks,

I visited this wonderful city in summer 2006, & i found La Sagrada Familia quite difficult to photograph because of the sheer size. This close up works so well & the sharpness is excellent. Well done!

i'm glad to read you also believe that barcelona is one of the most beautiful cities :) ... very nice 'piece' of the "sagrada famiglia" here, good POV, the texture of the stone correctly captured - well seen and composed!
well done and tfs,
for me sagrada is an amazing memory, aswell as the other gaudi's works (the ones i was lucky enough to see) ...
it is a personal opinion and of course i visited barcelona 10 years ago so things might have changed since ... but my belief is that everything added to sagrada (not by gaudi) and after his death - does not belong to sagrada (i might be subjective of course, but ... this is my opinion)
have a great sunday
