  1. Where is this? Natural lighting? Enhanced in post-processing? Beautiful regardless.

    • Inside St.Peter’s Basilica , John . In Vatican .
      Not natural light .
      Not much post processing too
      except for cropping and some tweaks in contrast and brightness.

      Thank you.

  4. Your capture of this phenomenal structure is perfect! Joyce

    • The structure is simply beautiful .
      But hundreds of visitors are there at any given moment .
      That makes getting a good shot difficult . :) !

      Thank you , Joyce .

  6. This makes me curious as to why statues and reliefs are not part of new buildings. This is spectacular. Very nice, thank you!

    • That is some food for thought . Most of the Cathedrals and Basilica in Europe have numerous beautiful sculptures.
      Centuries old temples in India , even small ones , have thousands of beautiful , artful sculptures in them in prefect design and layout..
      Is the ability to sculpt going down ? Or is the change in our attitude to look out for more flashy , more transient things ?

      Thank you , Jackie.

        I know art is alive and well around the world. My youngest daughter who studied art in Italy is now a professor at a university here in the US.

        The lean toward plainer architecture could be to streamline cost and upkeep expenses.

        Thank you for sharing your work!
