On our Summer holiday on Lago di Garda we visited a few old cities and were not disappointed. Particularly the church interiors were quite impressive. A great contrast to the sober Dutch Protestant churches.

Basilica di Santa Anastasia in Verona. A lovely city, many fantastic buildings, squares, statues. Close to Lago di Garda, crowded in Summer.

love to go on holiday with you, the more when Italy is the country of your choice! hope you'll treat us to many more! (!!).
painfully aware of that (dutch vs. italian) contrast! (since I can't pass a church nowadays, without running inside. but you have proven to be able to find the ones with wonderful details and depict those so well!).
eye candy again! you so master that lens!

Hi Paul,

I love European Catholic church interiors - meant to wow and scare the congregation in equal measure by displays of their 'majesty' and this set doesn't disappoint in that respect!

I am drawn immediately to #3 - that is a great shot and perhaps is an underrated type of image; I know just how hard it is to get this type of image 'just right' and, in this case, you've nailed it! It's beautifully symmetrical and is full of detail and colour - it's a really excellent shot

Of the others they all show some great control of perspective which, given the angle of view you've presented us with, is no small achievement. I think the Side Chapel shot is particularly nice.

Finally - the last shot. It's a shame the reflection in the marble floor shows up as, otherwise, I'd also be really keen on this one as well. You've just managed to keep the 'point' in the frame in the upper part of the image and the colours and details in the stone are just glorious. It's just those two small but eye-grabbing highlights that impact an otherwise very good image.

Thanks for sharing these and best regards, Neil.

A set of outstanding images - great work.

My favorites are #3 and #5 - less figurative, more ornamental- You had wonderful light in that place and made the best out of it!

I also had a look at the other churches which you documented - and these images are also excellent (I especially liked the sunbeams visible in the images).
It is harder to comment on the "Themed Views" threads since as soon as the next church is uploaded by another Dyxumer the referral back looks a bit awkward. So there is a narrow window in time, possibly, and that's a hit or miss story.

For me it's much easier to comment to the "open Views" threads - so good that you changed that!

TFS!
