Shrine Inside Santa Maria della Consolazione

photograph of a shrine inside Santa Maria della Consolazione in Rome, Italy

By Roman standards this small shrine inside Santa Maria della Consolazione is pretty unimpressive but when we peeked inside the church the lighting on the statue gave it a truly holy feel.

Inside Saint Ignazio’s

HDR photograph of the inside of Saint Ignazio Church in Rome, ItalyIf you are ever in Rome I recommend visiting Saint Iganzio’s Church.  From the outside it doesn’t look very exciting but once you walk through the door you will be amazed.  I’m sure some art history buffs will argue but I thought the ceiling was better than the Sistine Chapel’s and there was no waiting in line and no admission.  What you can’t see in the picture is all of the amazing sculpture that decorates both sides of the church.

The lighting in these churches ranges from very dark to extremely bright.  To create this image I had to blend 5 different exposures together.
