Photographer's Note

The cathedral of Reims.
The outstanding handling of new architectural techniques in the 13th century, and the harmonious marriage of sculptural decoration with architecture, has made Notre-Dame in Reims one of the masterpieces of Gothic art. The former abbey still has its beautiful 9th-century nave, in which lie the remains of Archbishop St Rémi (440–533), who instituted the Holy Anointing of the kings of France. The former archiepiscopal palace known as the Tau Palace, which played an important role in religious ceremonies, was almost entirely rebuilt in the 17th century.
It's also on the list of the World Heritage Committee UNESCO.

In this photo you can see the windows behind the altar, the same cross can bee seen twice. They are created by Chagall who also created the largest windows in the world in the cathedral of Metz.

A very nice web about all the monuments in France that also includes this cathedral
See :

Technical aspects: It was rather dark so I used a tripod. Measured my light at the window.

Postprocessing: PhotoShop, rotated until strait, finaly some L, CB and a bit USM.

Conditions: cloudy day, lightspot on the window

My Goal: Capture the scene with both main objects, altar and glass, in composition with the same atmosphere.
