Église Saint-Germain l'Auxerrois



The tall columns topped with garlands
give way to the brilliantly-colored windows.

Great colors in that window.

Julie said...

Agreed. Not easy to capture this level of colour AND not have the column in silhouette.

Brava!

Oh, that's beautiful, Genie! You managed to show the skills and inspired talents of both the stone masons and the stained glass artists. Each supports the other.

Framing the bright stained glass window with the dark column is an excellent way to present the scene.

That's a lovely composition. Photographing stained glass windows in dark interiors is pretty hard, but you did a good job on this one!

You certainly have made me realise that absolutely every Parisian church has gifts for us.
