St. Adalbert's Church in Wrocław:


Generally that's a Gothic church ...


...with some typical "gothica" architecture elements ...


... paintings ...


... and other things, like this baptismal font (partly recreated) ...


... or this holy water "bowl" (at the entry of the church).


Interestingly, in the XVIII century they extended the church with a Baroque chapel of Saint Ceslaus which is an interesting contrast to the Gothic view of the remaining part.

Overall view ...


... look up ...



... and some sculpture details ...


... with some astonishing pieces ...

The Church of Vissoie, Val d'Anniviers, Switzerland looks more like a barn but it really is a church:

It is indeed a beautiful church.

The church is the very famous Duomo of Firenze in Italy, the angle of view likely makes it hard to recognize.

Entrance to the Antwerp Cathedral with the 10-20 @ 10 mm. Unfortunately part of the the top left is burned out beyond my PP skills. Still like the picture very much, mainly due to the location and position of the other person admiring all the artwork (he just stood there, don't know him)

Mind the bandwidth of others, don't link pictures larger then 1024 wide or 960 pix high, see here

In the City Centre of Tilburg stands the "Heuvel Kerk"= Hill Church, dedicated to Saint Joseph, with the two characteristic towers seen from our hotel room:

Nice churches and pics in this thread!
Here is one taken this past saturday, a vertical pano of 6 pics, taken with 100/2 (my One Prime lens for the month) and assembled with PhotoMerge (CS4), handheld, output is 4040x10350. Anyway, nothing really exciting, but I wanted to try that out

I am currently in Montreal for a conference and my wife and I decided to take part of the afternoon off for a tour of old Montreal. Here are 3 views of Notre Dame Cathedral from this afternoon. I really had to use the high ISOs to get some shots, as the lighting was dim, but the church is spectacular! It felt like being inside a Faberge egg.

Is the last one the "Stairway to Heaven"?
