St. Elisabeth, Bonn, Altar

Posted by MadScientist (Düsseldorf, Germany) on 15 November 2008 in Art & Design.

A Jesus altar in a side aisle of my favourite dark church. There were only two weak spotlights above the altar. I kneeled down, stopped breathing and took three shots. At original resolution this image more resembles an oil painting than a photograph, but after a bit of processing I think the result is acceptable.

Great shot - nice framing with the arch, good interior exposure, and the alter is really set off with the lighter brighter color than the rest.

@PD: I'm rather experienced in tremble-free usage of my camera even at longer exposures. :-)

It does resemble something else, more dreamlike.

@Observing: I have one more (but only from outside). Maybe something I should shoot more often.

@JustShenn: You would like it, it's a nice, quiet place.

I think this is my favorite of all the altar pieces you've posted.
