Is this a light efect? L1

Avulso, the vault design consist of real three dimensional chamfers. One architect told me, they are nearly impossible to describe mathematically, e.g. in a 3D modelling program. So must be difficult to craft manually, too

Hi Zerega, I'm sure the craftsmen needed many hours to do such a wonderful job. What I meant, are the white stains in the ceiling caused by light entering the building? Cheers from Portugal, Jean-Marie.

Yep, that are sun-lit spots. I measured the exposure on the shadows.

It seems to me that camera film has a narrower range when compared to digital sensors. Do you have that impression? JM

Maybe, but the main limitation is the scanning process. Sometimes you have to scan twice with different exposure settings to get evreything out of the slide. Sort of HDR-scanning.
