    The interior of the Igreja Matriz De São Lourenço.

    From a scan of a postcard sold at Igreja Matriz De São Lourenço, which does not allow photos of the interior. This scan has been color adjusted and levels balanced with Photoshop.

      This is a very beautiful place. Great job with the levels. A shame they don't allow photography there.

      I saw this in CHURCHES & HOUSES OF WORSHIP (5 Daily Limit - Please Comment) (?)

      I agree that it is a shame that they don't allow photography, but I suspect it is a ploy to push the postcards. I had entered the church alone after paying the small admission fee just outside the entrance, and being told not to take any photos, which I respected. A group of two other people came in after me, and started snapping away. The matronly lady who was manning the admissions desk, quickly stepped in saying "NO PHOTOS!" and pointing to various parts of the ceiling to indicate we were being watched by video cameras which was funny, as it was clearly not true.

      I do feel a little of a cheat posting something that is not my own work here, but the interior of this church was just too beautiful to not share. I rationalize by saying I did SOME work on the post card!
