so ornate

a lot of craftsmanship
Tom Wilson: It certainly is!
> I like your choice of angle with the viewer's eyes moving up to the clouds.
Tom Wilson: It was pretty well forced on my, Jacquelyn, because the street is so narrow smile
Amazing details, Tom
Tom Wilson: A lot of work involved here!

Plain and simple it most definitely is not
Tom Wilson: Flamboyant might be the word!
Quelles magnifiques sculptures.
Tom Wilson: Bon travail!
Excellent POV, Tom.
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Ginnie - welcome back smile
Looks a bit like the front of a town hall rather than a church Tom
Tom Wilson: Yes, I see what you mean, Bill.

Looking up like this really makes this church appear to tower over one.
Tom Wilson: The street is so narrow, this was just about the only option, Chad.

When I see pictures like this, I often think of the skill, work and sheer toil that went into it
Tom Wilson: Enormous work and skill - and there are still stonemasons around who can do this kind of thing.

Nice perspective!
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Bonnie.
It is certainly a very impressive building.
Tom Wilson: Inside and outside!
I can just imagine the number of craftsmen and number of hours it took to create this masterpiece, Tom. Don't see building like this being constructed today.
Tom Wilson: The cost of doing so would be enormous!
It is certainly ornate.
Tom Wilson: That's the word, Mary smile
i like this angle against the backdrop of the sky, Tom. quite a lot to see here.
It's grand!
