The gilded window screen at St Vitus' southern tower (J. Schmidthammer, 1568-1573).

Phil D. Morris from Saskatoon, Canada

Magnificent detail and very beautiful in black and white.
The detail is astonishing.

@Phil D. Morris: Black and White saved my day. :-)

Ronnie 2¢ from Atlantic Shores, United Kingdom

The contrast and sharpness here make me feel we are seeing this like never before . . almost forensic.

@Ronnie 2¢: This makes me smile - the forensic photography of Mad Scientist. :-D

Andrea from Regina, Canada

Great detail, and love the processing.

@Andrea: Many thanks, Andrea!

Ted from South Wales, United Kingdom

fantastically detailed MS...how did it look in colour?

@Ted: Golden! But it was a rather dull day and contrast was meagre.

Jen from Alpharetta, United States

Gorgeous

@Jen: And big: 10m huge at least.

Steven from Chicagoland, United States

What ornate filigree that you've captured here! Really stands out against the stone.

@Steven: Only through B/W: the original shot looks much more flat.

Japanalia from Yokohama, Japan

Excellent processing! I think you gave new life to the walls and the filigreed window!

@Japanalia: I had to - it was a cloudy day and contrasts were lousy! :-)

Two Shoot from Salt Lake City, United States

Great capture. Strong image.

@Two Shoot: Thank you very much, Two Shoot!

Beautiful contrast, the BW goes very well on those old stones.
