Originally coming from an orphanage in Eupen, some excellent historistic found their way to this church. They beautifully illuminate the hall and have great colours.

Phil David Alexander Morris from Saskatoon, Canada

Superb window, and who better than to make it look its best than you. You really have a gift working in churches.

@Phil David Alexander Morris: You should see me with my shivering hands, taking four, five, six shots of the same scene / window, hoping that at least one will be good enough for further processing. Really, it's no witchcraft, but a matter of slow breathing. :-)

Philip from South Wales, United Kingdom

I like a good stain glass windows. This one is very good and nice processing.

Ted from South Wales, United Kingdom

crisp and beautifully coloured make this, in difficult light, look very easy!!

@Ted: A steady hand will help, but taking this shot, correcting the perspective and adjusting the brightness was no witchcraft! :-)

Steven from Chicagoland, United States

Great color (particularly the blues) and detail that you've captured in this tall composition. Defines the window's shape nicely with the white borders.

@Steven: This was an extremely lucky situation, as the light from outside was perfect for this kind of shot!

JoeB from Brampton, Canada

A beautiful piece, is this where the praying is done for a victorious German football outcome, like a 4-0 outcome. :)

@JoeB: Well, everything else would have been embarrasing, wouldn't it!
