Your top photo is taken from a vantage point behind the middle of the center aisle and is in sharp focus in low light. That causes me to think that either you brought a tripod with you into church or you found a stand, such as a contribution box, on which to set the camera to keep it still.Or, you are an extraordinary calm person who can hold a camera steady for a slow exposure shot, and your camera must have an excellent image stabilizer. Whatever the reason, it is an excellent photo.
David, no tripod or stand point and I'm not that calm either, I was just lucky. :-)
What a gorgeous shot! And reading your comment above, I'm in awe of your abiltiy to get such a great shot without a tripod. Great work.
Terrific captures as always, JM! Such a beautiful basilica! Have a wonderful weekend!Sylvia
Very interesting architecture shots of this basilica. Very good job!
The basilica is beautiful and I can identify with Dave in the challenges of capturing a dark church... You did a great job on this one! Were you named after this prince?Bisous,Genie
sans tripod, bravo, c'est pas facile ce type de photo. Tres belle premiere photo
I am amazed at the clarity as well. I thought for sure you had a tripod! In any case, it's a beautiful photo of a beautiful church.
It looks very magnificent. And Dave is right, you captured excelent low light images.
very impressive church. i like the interior shot.
Love the sky in the second picture, this church wouldn't be out of place in Rome itself!
Another marvelous edifice and super photo! I can't help wondering if Queen Mary built it because of the "fulfilled promise," why she didn't tear it down when the Prince died?And what do you suppose it cost to construct this monument to faith? Just some thoughts...
What a beautiful building, and great captures of it. One of the things I miss about living in Europe is the history - my city is only about 100 years old and has nothing like this.
Beautiful church and impressive dusk sky!God bless you!Cezar
What a magnificent house of worship. Very few churches in the U.S. are as beautiful as those in Europe.
This is such a lovely shot of the interior ,, the lighting does the building proud. So sad for the Prince to die when his mother was obviously extremely proud of her son -- despite the wealth it was not easy being a royal with all the pressure to produce heirs.
That first shot is quite stunning, Jose. Not just the clarity but the tones that you have been able to render. Fancy living to just 9 years, when you should have had the world at your feet.Bravo!
It's so pretty and again a very nice composition with the light, shapes and symmetry.
JM, your photos are both wonderful. The church is so interesting that it just begs the observer to continue looking . . .
wow! Both pictures are awesome!
This is too beautiful for words. Your photos are lovely.
I just add my name on the list of people who really like this superb shot!:)Have a nice weekend!(I bought some colorful "Primula"plants this week.My thoughts went to you in Portugal;)
Beautiful church, inside and out. Beautiful images.
How sad about the little prince. But at least he can be remembered by this beautiful house of worship.The lighting is beautiful.
Linda basilica só entrei lá uma vez , funeral, vou ter que voltar lá!
I just love seeing the insides of such magnificent churches! I'm catching up on your blog this morning! I've missed some great postings of yours lately....Bon weekend
