These are photographs of the Cathedral of St. Matthew the Apostle (aka "St. Matthew's Cathedral"). It is the seat of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Washington DC. Its style is Romaneseque with Byzantine elements. I had been there earlier this year, but that was prior to my discovery of high dynamic range photography, so I visited it again. A handful of shots are just straightforward photos with my Canon EOS 40D but most are HDR. The lenses I used were my Canon L-series 24-105mm lens and my Tokina 12-24mm wide angle lens. I touched them up in Adobe Photoshop Elements 6.0 and used Photomatix Pro to create the HDR pictures. The music is a Gregorian chant "Gradualia: Dirigatur" by Alberto Turco and Nova Schola Gregoriana.

I was a young woodworker in the mid and late 1980's and worked for the organ company that began the construction of the pipe organ in the pictures - we built it up to the first level above the collar and it was then taken over by another company to complete. Interestingly enough - a couple of years earlier, I worked for a custom woodworking company in Dallas, TX that was only a few blocks from where JFK was shot. I drove by there every day on my way to work. 
non sono d'accordo... credo sia un'ottima esecuzione a regola d'arte e con grande spiritualità. E' solo un mio umile parere.... a presto. Alessandro
