A few with E-PL1

Not strictly "inside": above the leftmost entrance of St.Mark in Venice, the arrival of his body taken from Alexandria. Above in the mosaic, you can see the four horses "borrowed" from Costantinople in 1204...

Not too far from Philly
you should be able to figure it out...
Ray, if you wouldn't mind editing to let us know which camera you were using...no doubt it's a PEN. Of course, I can click on it and see it's an E-P2.:biggrin:
Actually, 3 of the 4 were taken with the epl1, with the 9-18, all at 9mm I believe. The exif reads ep2 because of the workaround I used to do to get epl1 files into Aperture by fooling the program into thinking they were ep2 files. This was before Aperture was reading epl1 files. The one with the organ pipes was with the ep2 and the 20mm.

Pictor, you have to give me the location and artist - stunning shot of this scene!
This picture is taken in the Minoritenkiche in Linz (Austria), which is a small, but very beautiful church. It was originally built during the 1200s in the early Gothic style. The interior of the church as it can be seen today is from late Baroque (Rococo). I don't know the artist of this pietà. It is a very beautiful piece of art, but not the greatest masterpiece, which is the high altar by Bartolomeo Altomonte:

Thank you so much Pictor for all the background. I would love to be able to see these places in the flesh, but for now will be happy being an armchair traveler.

Glorious blues! Amazing what a little camera can do - and thanks for the wires explanation photo, I like it, too! What an incredibly beautiful interior.

Next time, I'm going to have a camera that won't blow out the windows....

Where I really wanted a faster lens? The Aya Sofya, also in Istanbul. It was the largest cathedral in Christendom for nearly a thousand years, and then a mosque for nearly five centuries. It became a museum in 1935.

Most of my shots didn't turn out. I have some that are more interesting than this one, but none that show the scale of the place, especially given the extensive scaffolding in the center....



Here's a detail:

Wow, thanks for these - and thank goodness you got that one that shows the incredible expanse - amazing, blown out highlights or not!

Thanks Bill for starting this thread.
Wow, great images ! I really must post a few images of nearby churches shot recently. Before taking pictures I always ask permission.
My images will be posted soon.
