Dear All,

Hope everybody got started peacefully and safe in 2013!

I have posted a shot of a painted stained glasses in a church located in the heart of the city. I like the artwork done on those glasses with different forms. The light passing through them even enhances the overall charm and beauty of them.

Hope you enjoy the mood in this shot.

Best regards,



Hand-held shot with ISO=800, Focal length=58 mm, no changes except cropped and resized for TL.

Bom dia Paras,
Besides being a beautiful photo carries a simple but profound message of peace and contrition.
Feliz ano novo.

Hi Paras,

the colours' vividness of stained glass windows is an irresistible attraction for many photographers, but unfortunately sometimes it's difficult to handle the contrast amongst light, colours and shadow.This is not the case.The image is clean and crisp, colours are well made without overdoing.In these cases, personally, i prefer to darken more the stone part to bring out better the jazzy colours of glass.But actually this picture is really eye-catching.

I wish you a happy 2013.


Happy New year Paras
A good capture: good sharpness, good colours and excelent work of this painted glasses.
Be happy with your family
um abraço

Bom dia Paras,
Simplesmente fantástico. Parabéns!!!

Hi Paras,
I think I would've prefered to see a vertical image where the entire arch was in view. Now it feels constrained and my eyes are wanting to move upward. Still you've captured the light in the stained glass perfectly and still kept good details in most of the shadow areas.

Ciao Paras, great view of fantastic stained glasses, superb light, splendid sharpness, fine details and wonderful colors, very well done, my friend, Happy New Year 2013, ciao Silvio

Hi Paras,
Perfect exposure to obtain perfect lighting from these stained glass windows. I like the details both in the colored glass and the architecture.
Perfect light management and such a neat presentation.

Hi Paras,
a good capture of the stain glass windows of the church. The European stain glass works from the middle of last millennia are incredible to see and this is a good example.

Well seen and captured.

Hi Paras.

I like the subtle detail, the way the arches conceal the light thus enhancing the effect with the coloured glass. Good semetry also.

stv ;o))

Hi Paras,
Nice presentation of this of this glasses with different forms,
good contrast and light in a sharp details,
Excellent point of view , mood and colors..
My compliments

Hi Paras,
The painted art windows are always good for a tight fitting image,which you have done here very artistically, well seen MF.

Hi Paras,

The arch is framing well the glass. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the stained glasses. The surrounding light is bringing out the colors. Have a nice day.
