The magnificent Church of St. Estevem in Goa lights up the eponymous village along the River Mandovi. It was founded in 1575, and destroyed twice by the Marathas, before the current structure assumed its final form in 1759. The church features a “cupoliform façade with prominent drum and lantern” and is built in the “Mannerist style with Baroque features.” (vide The Parish Churches of Goa by José Lourenço, Amazing Goa Publications, 2006.)
The village of St. Estevem also goes by the name Jua.
The details on this picture are something else. It almost takes you back to a different time…..
Something about the architecture of the building leaves me a little cold.
Photographically, the 24-105 doesn’t seem to have any of its usual distortion. Have you done any distortion corrections in post-processing?
