"The Beauty Of Sainte-Chapelle"

I made this image while we were touring France a few years ago.  La Sainte-Chapelle in Paris is one of the most beautiful church interiors I have ever seen.  Point the camera anywhere, and it seems you capture a stunningly beautiful image.  The color contrasts, the soaring architecture, the rich detail of the stain glass windows leaves one breathless when standing in the astounding magnificence of this location. I chose a very wide angle lens, pointed the camera towards the ceiling, opted for a very symmetrical composition, and fired away.  Camera specs: Canon 5D fitted with Sigma 12-24mm lens at 12mm, F4.5 @ 1/4 second 9handheld), ISO 1600.  Enjoy!  -David
