While this church is currently closed for renovations, I was able to see its lovely interior with Frank in 2015. The church, history of which goes back to 235 AD when two Christian Roman soldiers, Cassius and Florentius, were martyred for their faith. It was first built in the 4th century and has been demolished and then rebuilt and later reconstructed several times. It bears quite a number of names: Bonn Münster; Bonn Cathedral; Bonn Basilica; St. Martin's Basilica; Collegiate Church of St. Cassius and St. Florentius. Formerly it was a seat of Cologne archbishop, now it is only minor basilica. The Ci is an image of our guide under a pink Chestnut tree
IMHO the side light makes this image. Usually we are looking at the stained glass and trying to figure out how to capture with without clipping and leaving the church details in silhouette but with your POV and the extra light we now have beautiful light on the church details. Bravo! Well done.
The quality of the photo is amazing considering the distance to these wonderful windows in the apse of the chhurch - and the rather poor light conditions. Also the rich colours are beautiful. In combination with your excellent note an exemplary contribution. Well, I do not comment the CI ... ;-)
Greetings to you both, this time from Potsdam near Berlin!

Excellent how you got so much of the altar and windows into the frame. It gives us a very good feeling of the place. I am sure this was not an easy task, on one hand it is pretty somber inside a church and on the other hand the daylight is bright. A challenge. It seems like you had a great time touring the place with your personal guide :-)
