Conspiracy by andreasrocha Conspiracy by andreasrocha
Inspired by a visit to the beautiful church of "São Domingos" in Lisbon.
The church suffered a big fire in 1959 which completely destroyed the inner decoration. It was decided not to hide the marks of the fire and to my eyes it only makes the church more beautiful. I was told the orange painted ceiling is a reminiscence to the fire. Here is a photo:

Dedicated to Paula Bottas for showing me this beautiful church.

The perspective in the seams of that pillar in the right-hand foreground converge a bit too fast and too low. The pillar is also maybe lit too much, since the bright stone contrasts with the shadows and draws attention away from the figures and the background, which is a shame because those parts of the image are really nice. So my crticism is to straighten that pillar out and tone it down so it doesn't take away from everything else :-)

I agree with the seams but from an outsiders opinion I first noticed the bright background, the figures, and then the pillar.

I love how this is fairly simple, composition-wise, but yet still so filled with a sense of scale, atmosphere, and purpose. Brilliant.

I think there's actually a perspective problem here, and it took me a sec to figure it out, but I think I caught it.

I'm pretty sure this is done in 1-point perspective, but the thing is, 1-point only exists in nature if you are staring straight down the vanishing point. The very fact that you can see the side of the pillar means that you are now dealing with 2-point perspective. Certainly there wouldn't be a huge difference, but it's enough that it seems a bit off.

Your camera actually might be far enough away that you'd start to notice 3-point perspective too, come to think of it.
