A simple chapel

by Berckmans Peter July. 07, 2020 289 views

We visited the city of Mechelen today . One of the highlights there is the St Rombouts Cathedral. This cathedral is old big and full of treasure. This chapel caught my eye because it was a very simple chapel, between the other more wealthy chapels.

In this case my preference goes to the color version, the colors go so well together.

I'll vote the other way--I prefer the B&W image.  I do like the colors, but the reflection of the color banners dominate the image and for me detract from the rest of the photo. If the banners were not there, I would go for the color image.

I'll make it unanimous, so far......... color for me too!
Like the side-by-side comparison....
Looks like that chapel has seen many worshipers, over the years.....

It was a chapel for the rich and famous. I believe it is one of the older one

I agree. I like the color version better, especially the fireplace.

Glad you do. I believe it is a small altar

Colour for me too, I'm loving desaturated tones at the moment. Putting these versions together you have inadvertently recreated a famous optical illusion.
