Photographer's Note

La Zona Colonial de Santo Domingo es el m嫳 antiguo asentamiento europeo en las Am廨icas. Los primeros caballeros en Santo Domingo se preciaban de ser muy religiosos y forzaron a los nativos locales (llamados Los Ta璯os) a ayudar en la construcci鏮 de muchas iglesias y capillas a lo largo de la nueva ciudad. La de Santa B嫫bara est entre las m嫳 viejas iglesias de Am廨ica y sin dudas es una de las m嫳 hermosas. Est localizada en la parte norte de la vieja colonia, en la cima de una colina que sol燰 dominar la vista del pueblo y el r甐 Ozama. Sin embargo, hoy d燰 Santa B嫫bara est cerrada (los vecinos del sector me dijeron que est嫕 remodelando su interior desde hace varios a隳s). Al frente de Santa B嫫bara encontrar嫕 un bello parquecito. El lugar est rodeado de polvo y basura, por lo que trat de capturar un poco del ambiente.

Esta es una foto panor嫥ica creada a partir de tres tomas, una de las hojas, la del medio con el cuerpo de la iglesia y la superior con el campanario y el cielo. Utilizando la herramienta de Clone en Photoshop elimin una serie de alambres de electricidad que se encuentran frente a la Iglesia.

Santo Domingo's Zona Colonial is the oldest european settlement in the Americas. The early "hidalgos" in Santo Domingo claimed to be very religious, and forced the local natives (called the Ta璯os) to help build many churches and capels along the newly founded city. Santa B嫫bara is among the oldest churches in America, and one of the more beautiful indeed. It's located in the northern part of the old Colony, on top of a hill that once dominated the view of the town and the river Ozama. But despite this, nowdays Santa B嫫bara is closed (people in the neighborhood told me they are remodeling inside for several years now). In front of Santa B嫫bara you'll find a very nice park. The place is surrounded by dust and garbage, so I tried to capture a little of the "ambience".

This is a panorama stitch made from three shots, one of the leaves, middle of the church and top of the belltower and sky. I cloned out a bunch of electrical wires that ran in front of the Church.
