Stiftskirche, Bonn: Altar

Posted by

Altar in a side aisle of Bonn's Stiftskirche. I don't have any data on it, but I find its similar style to the Neo-Gothic high altar of St. Remigius (right) quite remarkable.

This is a WONDERFUL presentation! What I'm not sure of is.....did you work on it to create that light effect OR this is the way it was shot? Please, enlighten me!

@Japanalia: It's the original light that came in when I took this shot. I was lucky, this was done on a sunny September day.
