Rita Crane Photography: Prague / Baroque church / St. Nicholas church / pipe organ / interior / Angels Playing Heavenly Music, Prague

I didn't have a tripod but did my best to capture this astonishing interior ... leaning my Fuji Finepix S7000 on a friend's shoulder. I no longer use this camera but wanted to upload this amazing scene anyway ..... ! One could almost hear the angels 'rocking out' in the etheric realms ... and their joy was palpable.


I highly recommend visiting the interior of the baroque St. Nicholas Cathedral. It's located in the Malastrana district of Prague, at the base of the hill where the Castle is. A stunning interior that rivals any Hollywood extravaganza! Just every square inch of this church is decorated with stunning craftsmanship dedicated to a higher purpose. Not everyone's style, of course, and for those of us who love the simplicity of the Romanesque architecture, this might feel suffocating, but truly, it is full of joy, artistry, and wonderful details. This organ was one of my favorite parts of this amazing interior. I just wish I'd had a tripod!! :0)


I just bought Nik Sharpener Pro 3.0 and can now improve the quality of my images taken a few years ago with a Fuji Finepix S7000 that didn't quite look as good as I wanted them to. But Nik Sharpener Pro 3.0 really helped bring the best out of them. I no longer shoot with the Finepix, but I still love this shot of Prague taken with that trusty little camera, especially now that I can process them a bit more to bring out the true beauty of this wondrous fairyland of a city!
