My reading for ToM: up in the air, but inside. A ceiling scape.
I did some trials of panorama, in HDR to get architecture view inside some cathedral.
This shot is one of those trials.
It is inside view of Tréguier's cathedral, one of the most interesting church in Brittany, also having some relics of St Yves.
To do the assembly I was using ICE freeware from Microsoft which is working much better than the tools embedded in Photoshop or Lightroom.
Wow, your pp is absolutely monumental, this is really an art work on its own, besides the obvious beauty of this cathedral and how you managed to photograph this in such an amazing quality. It's such a beautiful ceiling, the yellow is very eye-catching too. Visiting your name-giver, the holy St. Yves :-) Great TOM, I wouldn't have thought about this, churches do have something "above".
Wow and I can only imagine the large version of this image. words are not enough to explain. All those details and I feel like I have eyes on the side of my head and not just in the front. Beautiful panoramic effect and a very unusual one, we tend to only see panoramic on a landscape image. This is a good one for the theme also as the ceiling is high up in the air.
Welcome back, we can use some more activity here this last few weeks has been a ghost town here on the site.
Woowww! A really impressive photo which actually deserves a large version. What an architecture - from the choir to the oorgan! This upward view simply is amazing and fascinating. I like this "panorama" very very much!
Greetings from cool and rainy Germany!
This is really a great perspective and a bit out of the ordinary. I really like this. Did you get any grief from the cathedral staff or the tourists by getting on the floor and shooting up? I see you used a tripod did you have to get a permit? Anyway whatever the you had to go through was worth the effort. Excellent image!

You can do what you want as long as you are respectful.
I was visiting this Church in early afternoon, in working days. There were not some much people.
Discussing with Kath, I understood it is not working in the same way in Great Britain.
From the thumbnail I was expecting the Sagrada Familia for some reason. I see it's nothing like it after all.
Your HDR experiment was successful. This looks extremely well exposed and more importantly natural and not like a Disney cartoon. I also love the symmetry of the framing.
I hope you didn't hurt your neck! 😛
sevy (2016/07/17 15:50:01): Tripod and liveview,mode: my neck survived to the job :-)
I could get lost in the depth and perfect balance of this image. It is like lying on my back looking up at ceiling with no obstructions. Just setting up each image for this panorama seems incomprehensible to me, let alone putting it together perfectly. the image is perfect for the theme.
Tu sais attirer le regard! Combien d'images assemblées pour obtenir cet époustouflante vue de l'intérieur de TA cathédrale, Yves!?
sevy (2016/07/22 17:29:58): Seulement 2, mais à 11mm chacune, ça cadre donc très large.
J'ai fait quelques essais pour faire aussi un panorama à 180° qui demande bien plus de photos (autour de 7-8) mais je trouve le résultat plus équilibré sur celle-ci: le plafond est mieux mis en valeur.
J'utilise aussi une réglette qui permet de décaler le boitier en arrière de l'axe de la rotule pour que la rotation se fasse autour de la pupille d'entrée du zoom: ça facilite beaucoup l'assemblage en très grand angle.
Tu n'as jamais essayé ? De mémoire la cathédrale de Bordeaux est assez jolie.
