Have you printed this big? Probably could decorate an entire wall on its own.

I like the strong feeling of symmetry and the tactility of the metalic surfaces of the organ.

Very nice indeed! I also love the symmetry and the lovely colours of the stained glass window.

The customer received a print in 50x75 as proof. I love to shoot the D600 as Digiback.

Haarlem Holland St. Bavo

The natural perspective is blocked by Chandeliers. Lots of them.

So you have to take her from the right side.

These and two detail shots for the time being

omg I really can hear the organ playing. dont ask me the tune - but its the first one that immediately comes to mind when looking at the images - so beautiful.
And here I was expecting human organs - till I saw who posted the thread  :P

If you dare to set foot into a church in CapeTown please contribute to this thread. Organs are a very interesting
Photographic subject.

Nicely captured Frank. I, like Elsa, can hear the music echoing across the empty chambers. (Organ music is best heard in an empty church.)

Wow, I am neither a church goer nor do I know anything about organs, but this thread is amazing. My favourite shot so far is from the Franziskanerkirche. Impressive!

Thank you Mike Susane and Gary. You do not have to believe in anything to value the art of building and playing the organ.

To participate here go into the next church. Take the best shot you can get of the organ.
Collect as much info as you can get about who built it when and you got a caption too.
