  • It was three images taken at 10mm, handheld, at 1/4, 1/15, 1/60th. The most impressive interior of a church I have or likely will ever see. It blows your mind to see it in person. – dpollitt Nov 1 '11 at 14:53

    It is indeed quite impressive. Damn good HDR job too...not an artifact to be seen, and tonality is great! – jrista Nov 2 '11 at 3:22

Just to make it clear, this is a real photo and not a computer generated image. Check this other two photos where you can see the entire building. overview | inside view ;)

I went to visit a friend and couldn't look past those shoes on a shelf. Turns out that's exactly how she had bought them.
