I photographed the year 2011’s Christmas Eve ( kerstnachtdienst, kerstnacht in Dutch ) St. Peter and Paul ( ST. Petrus and Paulus ) Cathedral in Paramaribo, Suriname at 24th December 2011.
The mass started at 10:00 PM and served by Bishop of Paramaribo Monseigneur Wilhelmus Adrianus Josephus Maria de Bekker and Father Estaban Kross. The nativity scene animated with young ballerinas.
I used sort of lenses with my Nikon D2Xs ;
- AF-S NIKKOR 24-70mm f/2.8G ED
- AF Nikkor 35mm f/2.0D
- Nikkor 50mm f/1.4D AF
- Zeiss Makro-Planar T* f/2 100mm ZF.2 manual focus lens
All photos captured in NEF (RAW) and converted to JPG with Capture NX2 in batch process without any manual touch.
As you know the St. Peter and Paul Cathedral is World’s largest wooden cathedral and re-opened again in 2010 after its renovation completed. You may see some more photos from ;
I wish Merry Christmas and Happy Holiday Season you to all
Hope you like it. All the best,
