  1. Exciting to see this... beautiful photo!

    This is where I proposed to my wife on Gaudete Sunday 2003.

  2. Mark -- whence the beautiful blue? Paint? Windows? Or did you doctor the image a bit?

  3. The color of all the paint here, if I recall, is a single shade of off-white, somewhat yellowish in color, probably best reproduced here above the altar in the ceiling of the apse. The church is illuminated by incandescent lighting, which is yellow in color, and the blue that you see comes from the blue stained-glass windows.

    The camera picks up color variations that are usually not noticeable by the eye at the location. But if I enlarged this photo to wall-size, and you were to look at it closely, you wouldn't see as much color difference between the blue and the yellow, for your eye would adjust for the color of the lighting.
