St. James Cathedral, Santiago de Compostela, Spain

Discussion in 'Landscapes, Architecture, and Cityscapes' started by Frank, Sep 17, 2008.

  1. It's been about two and a half months since I gave away my Sony point & shoot and had my new gear sent from London. So I guess it's about time I shared some of the results of my efforts.
    The first obvious target for photographers in Santiago is the cathedral which was built around the Apostle's tomb and which receives over a hundred thousand pilgrims and more than a million visitors each year.
    Please let me know what you think. Any advice for progress is kindly requested and greatly appreciated.:smile:

    I'd posted this one in the screen-saver thread before.

    Thanks for looking.

    The thought of and the beauty of a great cathedral was great, but somehow as it fills in the back ground for a lighted wheel distracts from the grandeur of an awesome building.
    I like 1,2,& 3.
     
  8. Beautiful shots! This is on our travel list. What a gorgeous cathedral!

    Thanks, Rich
     
  9. Thanks, jadlh. I see your point. The truth is I was far too busy trying to figure out how to shoot a Ferris wheel to consider posible meanings of combining the wheel with the cathedral. However the Ferris wheel is part of the anual celebration of the day of the Apostle St. James around July 25. So there is a relation between the basilica and the wheel.
     
  10. Thank you, Rich. I will be posting more shots of the cathedral.

    Let me know if you come over. I'd be happy to show you around.
