This is the impressive Taal Church, or more commonly known as the Basilica Minore of St. Martin of Tours, built between 1858 and 1878. It stands 95 meters long and 45 meters wide on a plateau in the heart of Taal, and is considered to be the biggest in all of Southeast Asia. Atop its bell tower, it presents a panoramic view of the town plaza and Taal Lake from a distance.

Nice view of this church. the colors are very bright and we can see how old this church is looking at the different colors of the walls. TFS.

Hi Alford. Look at that great contrast between the deep blue sky and the white church. You retained the highlights info of the bright church very well. Nice catch Alford!

Hi Alford, nice upward perspective and very nice colours; The bright tones of the church stand out very nice against the beautiful deep blue sky. Nice to have included some people to get an idea about the size of the church. Well done!

Again, they've said it all. In addition, your right choice of focal length has produced good perspective to this huge structure.

Nice perspective and view of this white Basilica. Good enquadrement of this building contrasting this great blue sky. Possible a little bright but negliciable. Good colors, contrast and fine sharpness.
Well seen and well composed.

I think you did a good job here. Great atmosphere. Very good tonal range. Colors are very well saturated and defined. The central composition is very well framed by the blue sky.
We got to see the rich details of the façade because of the good sharpness. Thanks for sharing, Gabriel.
