What a window! What a shot!!! PERFECT!!! Sincere compliments, Manfred! This is STUNNING!!!! I simply cannot stop rolling it up and down!

@Japanalia: Many thanks, Gabriela! The architecture of this cathedral (rather wide) made this shot relatively easy.

António Pires from Lisbon, Portugal

Perfectly photographed.

@António Pires: Thank you very much, António!

Phil David Alexander Morris from Canada

The scale of this window must be as awesome as it is beautiful. What a perfect
image you have secured here. The scene here evokes a great painting.

@Phil David Alexander Morris: Thanks, Phil! I've got many more (in fact, I've taken a shot from each window there), and will present them all maybe on another site.

Olivier from Manage, Belgium

great shot, this is not easy for capture.

@Olivier: It was not so bad, the architecture was supporting (I had enough place and could step back for a suitable distance from the window) and the light was good, too.

Must surely be one of your very finest images - exceptional clarity and, of course, exquisite work in itself.

@Ronnie 2¢: Many thanks, much appreciated! I've taken a lot of window photos like this one and will probably present them on a separate site.

Michael from Chester, United Kingdom

This has to be one of the best windows ever, the details and exact colours are stunning. A wonderful shot.

I agree with Michael...the detail and quality is incredible!

@Ted: Many thanks, Ted!

Philip from South Wales, United Kingdom

A truly wonderful window. It is not your normal church stain glass window. The scene depicted is like a painting and you can only wonder at the skill and dedication in realising something like this. Oh and also your capture does justice to its beauty.

@Philip: Thanks, Philip! The artist reinvented the art of glass painting and many of his works can be seen at this fine Cathedral.

John Maslowski from Dallas, PA, United States

This is absolutely a magnificent capture of this exquisite window. Beautiful details, design and colors.

@Steven: Thanks a lot, Steven!

Christine Walsh from Astoria, NY, United States

I don't know how i missed this one...anyway, the colors are beautiful and there is so much depth considering it is glass.

@Christine Walsh: Many thanks! More about this, soon.

Bill Jennings from (Bay Area Northern Calif), United States
