I couldn't find a thread for these. When on holiday in Europe, I like to visit the ancient cathedrals and churches to admire the architecture, and to marvel at the ingenuity that enabled builders from hundreds of years ago to erect such enormous masterpieces. The interiors also hold many works of art, particularly paintings and sculptures.

To kick things off, here is a pic from Milan's Duomo, a statue of St Bartholemew, who was skinned alive when he was martyred. Here, he is depicted holding his own skin :-(

Years of sport shooting decided to try something new. This church was outside a volleyball shoot. Not used to this type of editing so let me know what I need to change.

Disclaimer: I am not an expert in anything.

It's nicely framed and the subject is good. There is a lot of noise however which, given it is a static subject, can easily be avoided by using a longer exposure if the light is bad. It may be that you wanted that particular effect.

I rather enjoy visiting churches etc. It satisfies two hobbies of mine - photography and history. Though I am not religious myself, I am glad that religions have succeeded in preserving so much really old architecture and art.

It was bad weather and I would have preferred using a tripod but I wasn't planning on shooting anything but volleyball that day. I handheld the camera and snapped about 4 shots. Thanks for commenting.

the Catholic grotto on the lower level

the colored glass in the ceiling in the Protestant chapel is made up of actual blocks of glass and during construction they were put in these specific places per the architectural drawings. the entire chapel is undergoing renovation to remove and replace the calking around these blocks and along other seams (asbestos) and they are completely cleaning and renovating the interior as well. each of the 25,000lbs of glass blocks are (or will be) numbered and cataloged so as to be put back in the same spot that it was removed from...
