The tight frame is putting the bell towers in evidence. The point of view is showing the détails and colours of the architecture of the bell towers. The good luminosity is bringing out the colours. Have a nice day.

Beautiful sky and very interesting lines and colors on the spires. Not seemingly to be typical Indian architecture. I am sure they must look wonderful from the inside. Overall, nice composition. I very much like seeing unusual images of India !@!

Looks like a scene from Belgium, and not from Calcutta. Serene atmosphere! so difficult to get in Calcutta.
I like the soft focus here, which goes well with the beautiful contrast of red against the blue sky.

J'aime beaucoup ce cadrage serré sur les deux clochers jumeaux qui pointent bien droits dans un ciel superbe.Elles ont l'air assises sur un nid de verdure.
Cricri (92167) 2013-08-30 7:22
Belle présentation de ces deux clochers jumeaux, bon cadrage et couleurs
ourania (18616) 2013-08-30 7:58
a lovely composition graced by wonderful lighting and colours. Your title is very apt, there's a fine rhythm in the frame and the unusual details of the architecture stand out and have great impact. I also like very much the sense of depth and the contrast between the stronger colours of the spires and the pale hues of the sky. The moderate warmth of the light is very attractive. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely weekend,

nice capture of this two colorful towers of St. James Church. I like the point of view, with the spires coming from the trees.
Romano46 (11461) 2013-08-30 10:53
bella foto per un bel soggetto!
La composizione è perfetta ed idonea a valorizzarlo al massimo, grazie anche all'aiuto dEi colori particolarmente belli e significativi della bella architettura.
Un ottimo contributo è venuto inoltre dal cielo che con il suo azzurro, macchiato di bianco va a costituire un bellissimo sfondo.
Ciao e buona serata

Lep pogled na tornjeve Crkve ...
Dobar trenutak snimka, kontrast, lepe boje.
Dobar rad, lepo pokazani tornjevi.

An interesting article about the school, with the given data ...
Nice view of the twin towers of the Church ...
A good time recording, contrast, beautiful colors.
Good work, beautiful towers shown.
All the best for the weekend.

Very nice church spires here, they look like rather like the spires of a fairy tale castle in Disneyworld than belonging to a real church.
I like your framing with the line of trees from where the towers emerge in the nice sky.
have a great weekend
ChrisJ (91276) 2013-08-30 16:19
Wonderful warm vs cold color contrasts between the red spires and blue sky with good sharpness and nice symmetry in the composition. Excellent shadow detail and density. The blue sky and white clouds make a fine backdrop. Tfs!
chrisvek (6995) 2013-08-30 17:47
Very wonderful photo with excellent architectural details and awesome colors and contrasts.Very good lightning usage and nice framework.Nice details too.
Have a nice weekend
mcmtanyel (5219) 2013-08-30 18:35
They are very vibrant indeed, so vibrant that you could have convince me this was from Disney World! I like the color combination, green buffered from the red by beige and the deep red of the spires against the blue skies - very nice.
ikeharel (43975) 2013-08-31 0:54
A perfect take on the duble turrets in red.
Fine clear shot, contrast is immaculate, the church seemto rise within the surrounding grteen.
Enjoy your weekend,
dip (22130) 2013-08-31 3:18
nice shot of twin church towers,
I like the contrast of warm red tones against the 'cold' blue of the sky,
well seen and composed!
holmertz (31260) 2013-08-31 8:00
I don't remember this church, but maybe I just never found this excellent POV where the towers are seen like growing out of the trees. The light is excellent and has given the colours a wonderful natural saturation. I like have you have plaecd the towers diagonally.
UlfE (14132) 2013-08-31 11:28
An excllent photo the two spires of the church. The colours are beautiful especially the red colour. Even if the style is gothic my general feeling is that style of the church is influnced of the architecture of India. But maybe I am misstaken. TFS and have a nice day!
adramad (30905) 2013-08-31 11:46
Certainly these two towers with his shot of these needles is very striking as colored.
A nice harmony in the picture with that beautiful sky as background and the tops of the trees, on which stand the towers.
Magnificent light and good sharpness.
Enjoy the weekend.

You're capturing well this church by a good angle and excellent tone/clarity, it's interesting and impressive to see church's two towers with red spire. It looks like colorful and tasteful design. And, it harmonizes well with greenery and blue sky.

Nice photo of tween towers. Not very often we can see two church towers. I cannot remember a church in Switzerland with two towers. Nice view up, excellent light & clarity. Well done. Greetings, Miro

Awesome capture of those spires! I like your pov and the use of the tree to anchor the composition. Good lighting and nice details. Wonderful colors. Well done, tfs.
jacquest (16388) 2013-09-07 4:23
The spires look like floating on the trees. I like the two contrasting colors and the angle of shot which gives a elle balanced composition.
mkamionka (27069) 2013-09-10 8:41
lovely composition I like the towers, they seem freshly painted. It is always ee catching to have a repeated element in the frame.
Very well spotted,
serp2000 (33099) 2013-09-14 21:04
