Artesonado

Got a thin skin? Then look elsewhere. Post a link to an image that you've made, and invite others to offer their critiques. Honesty is encouraged, but please be positive in your constructive criticism. Flaming and just plain nastiness will not be tolerated. Please note that this is not an area for you to showcase your images, nor is this a place for you to show-off where you have been. This is an area for you to post images so that you may share with us a technique that you have mastered, or are trying to master. Typically, no more than about four images should be posted in any one post or thread, and the maximum size of any side of any image should not exceed 950 px.

Forum rules
Please note that image critiquing is a matter of give and take: if you post images for critique, and you then expect to receive criticism, then it is also reasonable, fair and appropriate that, in return, you post your critique of the images of other members here as a matter of courtesy. So please do offer your critique of the images of others; your opinion is important, and will help everyone here enjoy their visit to far greater extent.

Also please note that, unless you state something to the contrary, other members might attempt to repost your image with their own post processing applied. We see this as an acceptable form of critique, but should you prefer that others not modify your work, this is perfectly ok, and you should state this, either within your post, or within your signature.

Images posted here should conform with the general forum guidelines. Image sizes should not exceed 950 pixels along the largest side (height or width) and typically no more than four images per post or thread.

Please also ensure that you have a meaningful location included in your profile. Please refer to the FAQ for details of what "meaningful" is.

I know the picture is slightly of center, but sometimes when you look up with a camera there are obstacles in your way that do not allow you to position yourself where you want to be. Artesonado (Carved wooden ceiling) is a type of intricately joined wooden ceiling in which supplementary laths are interlaced into the rafters supporting the roof to form decorative geometric patterns. The pattern reminds you of Jewish and Moorish decorative elements and it is found in Spanish architecture of the Middle Ages.

Thank you Tony. It's laborious work for sure, but in those days the workers worked for very little.

I wasn't aware of the word "artesonado" but yes it's amazing and found all over Europe I imagine.

The word "artesonado" refers to this type of woodwork found in medieval Spanish buildings. In this case, it looks like a synagogue or mosque. However, you may find this intricate wood-workmanship also in some European buildings - maybe not with the same motifs. :up:

Maybe, just maybe one day I could travel to Europe without work schedules and just enjoy it's people and architecture for a few months? One can only dream!

In my case it's family. I love every one of them but they take so much time of your holiday. But, without my family and friends we would never had seen or visited so many places.
