Eita, que eu fui até Floripa enão tive a oportunidade de ver esta igreja...agora,e stousentindo que perdi algo...
Gostei da sensação de profundidade e perspectiva, o azul tbm ficou tão bem. A cor ficou nítida e clara.

the shadows indeed helped you a lot. effective triangles! the overall vibe is very peacefull. the blue -orange colour contrast is tight. the window especially has a nice "it looks like a painting" illusion.
a critical note can be that the perspective is too stereotypical lineair but since this is a real life photo.. you could maybe smash and rebuild the walls.. haha.
i will use this colourcombi somewhere in one of my comics.. that means that you inspired me. nice.

I thought the peak of art was to make paintings that looked like photographs... you've just done the reverse and yet you've topped the peak of all arts.
This is simply great.
fascinating. seems like a dream. maybe I will paint this

truly wondeful stuff. took me a minute to figure out it was a shot, not painted. Very surreal with the warm colors in the middle of the cool. I love it. cant say much more. Please look at my gallery :P
