View from inside of Sta. Barbara church in Kutna Hora an historical town.

The church construction began in 1388 and was interrupted several times (by money reason) before it was completed in 1903.

Sta Barbara is the Patron Saint of miners, and Kutna Hora was famous precisely because it's silver mines.

I've cropped a little, used brightness & contrast and at last a litlle of colour balance.

Hello Jose

I like the POV here. Really good sharpness and dramatic tones.


Hi Jose,

WOW...this is exceptional work!! I love the perspective!! You have done a great job focusing o the heightof the cathedral!! Looking at the photo fast, it looks to have a slight fish eye filter to it but I think it is mainly the height.

Very well done my friend!

Hi Jose
Fantastic ground to the heavens point of view!
Great architectural details in this well-balanced composition
I wish you've had a better light distribution across the shot specially in the underside
Best wishes

Ciao Jose

Você nos mostra aqui um quadro muito difícil para tomar.
Você fez isso maravilhoso, excelente jogo de luz e sombra.
Luz e cores são soberba, a boa imagem no interior.
O teto da Catedral é fabuloso, marvilhosa apresentação!
Nice apresentação e com composição muito boa.

Tenha um bom fim de semana,


Bonjour José
Great use of low angle which gives the height of this church, with a perfect symetry and low point of view to have the altar
On my computer it looks a little too dark, but if it is, I think it was your choice .
Best regards

Hi Jose,
The strong wide angle view, the symmetrical placement of your subject and the progression of the light from the floor of nave until the dome enhance the greatness of this magnificent church.
Very impressive use of the colors balance. Superb work! Annie
