Default What you can find in your neighborhood.

It's strange what you can find in your neighborhood. Ok, 50km is not really close but...

my only defense is that in another country, and that's a silly excuse as there are no borders and even the language is te same.
Luckily enough I am not the only one who never heard about this small St. Peter. (this is something you normally don't see in my area, and to make it even more incredible is that it is located in a small village)

Quote:
Wikipedia:The Oudenbosch Basilica is a Roman Catholic basilica in the Dutch village of Oudenbosch. It was built under the initiative of father Willem Hellemons who was parish priest between 1842 and 1884. Its nave and interior were modeled after St. Peter's Basilica in Rome; while the facade is a replica of the Basilica of St. John Lateran also in Rome. The Basilica was designed by architect Dr. P. Cuijpers. Construction began in 1865 but was not fully completed until 1982. The basilica is unique in the region in that it is quite large with classical Italian appearance that is atypical for most of northern Europe, let alone a small village in North Brabant in the Netherlands

Wow....you live in a different neighborhood than I do .....but essentially your right. I take many walks around my neighborhood ...say within 5 kms or so.

I live on the Canadian Prairies...miles and miles of flat land. But I'm always amazed what I can find of interest , to photograph ....in and around where I live.

Absolutely stunning pictures and what a subject.

That a gorgeous set Ronny - and the HDR works really well, very natural but has brought out all the shadows and pulled the highlights back in.

Great shots Ronny and nice use of hdr, I really like #2&3, you make me wish I had a DSLR for my trip to Europe on 2004, I looked back at some of my cathedral, my P&S without a wide lens didn't do them justice.

Well done, HDR that is subtle and accurate rather than overbearing and cartoony. Very very well done.

What every one else said. The HDR is perfect, not over-done at all. Very natural. Get the program, you are handling it very well, these are great!

Nothing that great in my neighborhood - at least architecturally. You really did that spectacular old structure justice. Well done1
