Show us your views of magnificent Cathedrals, and beautiful Churches, Mosques, and Temples anywhere in the world. Or even a local neighborhood church, or a chapel of ease. Any religious structure is welcomed here.
Photographs ONLY! Interiors, exteriors, color, black and white. Show us the size and splendor of the world's Cathedrals, and the beauty of the preserved or forgotten Church, and the intimacy of the small, neighborhood church.
Three images per day, please. If you see work here you think is worthy of comment, then let's help promote it!
1- This group is intended for photographic images of cathedrals and churches only - other religious iconography, individual statues, cemeteries, etc. are not the subject, and must unfortunately be removed unless they're really intrinsic to the architecture. Paintings or non-photographic media will be removed.
2- This group is architectural in theme. The cathedral or church must be the subject of the image, not just a background element. It should be identifiable as religious architecture - not simply a wall, door, or window. NO superimposed text or graphics. NO collages will be accepted.
3- No Spamming the Group. That is, adding work that is not suitable for the group as per our rules. If you do this, your membership from the group will be terminated without warning
4- All work must be that of the photographer. Submitting work of others, even if it is in the public domain, is not allowed.
Some photos may be declined due to basic photographic issues - especially if out of focus or blurred throughout the image. Photos scanned or copied from slides or prints are acceptable as long as the quality is there (e.g. sharp focus, good composition, etc.) Please include a description with your photo, at a minimum the location and denomination of the church. The more information you include, the more likely your photos will show up in search results.
*Photographs of churchyards, lone statues, and items that are not specifically architectural in nature will be removed.* No close-up stained glass details, free-standing crosses, isolated statuary, or iconography. Thanks for understanding.
