Notre Dame Basilica, Ottawa ON

No tripods allowed. Had to be super still. There was prayer going on at the time, so had to include the people. Wish it could have been a little more bare.

Congrats on the ribbon!

Beautiful pic! One detail though... Notre-Dame basilica is located in Montreal, QC, and not Ottawa ON...

Beautiful church, wonderfully done especially considering all the restrictions! I actually like the inclusion of the pews and people - makes the space feel all the warmer, more appreciated, more loved. Congratulations on the ribbon.

Congratulations on your ribbon and PB. The architecture is fabulous and it's a beautiful shot. I actually like the inclusion of the people as they give it a living context rather than the sterile images of cathedral interiors we are often presented with. It's great that several congregants obliged by wearing blue.

There is a depth here that is effectively 3D. Amazing detail and color. Very nicely imaged and captured. Well done.

I think I would have preferred a photo without the lower part with the people, that just concentrated on the architecture.
