5 kilometers from Moscow there is the less known monastery of Saint Nikolas which is named Nikolo-Ugreshsky. During the Soviet era in was closed and the labor commune was esteblished on its place. Nowadays it was reopened and restored. Here on the shot you can see two main churches of monastery. The big one is Transfiguration Cathedral (1866-80) while the red construction is Assuption church, the oldest church of monastery (built in 1763). Hope you enjoy it.

anaines (827) 2006-03-08 15:26
Lovely. I like very much the white scene, with the little touch of colors. The contrast between background and foreground. Excellent!

this is nice photo I like the contrast between the white snow and the nice warm colors of the church in the back.

beautiful capture of that winter-scene .... so colourful, helps a little bit to forget about the cold winter ... well done!
Bianconeri78 (701) 2006-03-09 7:34
Another very picture! However I would have tried to leave a bit more space next to the blue cupola on the left. It is too close to the edge. You were unlucky to have a white sky in my view, but there's not much you can do about that!
JanP (1705) 2006-03-10 6:13
Crystal clear sharpness and lots of contrast - both in the picture and in the subjects! The church is caught from the right angle.
osse (2808) 2006-03-10 19:03
Great foto of this monastery.Like this color difference.
pastadog (13111) 2006-03-11 3:37
Hi Tanya, what a beauty! the white tree in the foreground is IMO running the show here, and the golden and blue domes are majestic. The composition, colors and sharpness are excellent. Amazing shot. TFS, Daniel
PixelTerror (0) 2006-03-11 4:39
A lovely vertical framing that focuses on the domes, certainly the most spectacular part of this monestery, the snow covered branches add the winter fairy to this view, I'm just wondering considering the dull sky why you did not frame lower to get less sky and include the entrance ?
Have a nice week end,
mbhhas (307) 2006-03-12 3:10
Very nice shot! you have a greate eye for Churches. And for story telling in pictures you do this very well.

Hello Tatiana (beautiful name...),
This photo is very attractive. A nice and different point of view of this landmark. The icy three on the forefront gives a romantic setting to this winter scene. Excellent!
PDP (439) 2006-03-13 16:15
Hi Tanya, this is lovley! Very nice composition and the buildings are superb. I'd like to visit Russia one day...it has to be snowing though! Well done.

Очень приятная фотография, чувствуется опытный глаз. Композиция выстроена четко: никаких лишних деталей. В то же время рамки фотографии не обрезают никаких важных фрагментов. Возможно, было бы неплохо с более синим небом, но тогда, есть шанс, что потерялись бы купола. Также складывается впечатление, что у камеры выставлена на максимум резкость. В целом, очень хорошая фотография.
Fis2 (103832) 2006-03-15 13:26
Piêkne miejsce, super pokazane. Wspania³a "rosyjska" zima! Kapitalne kolory. Dobry kadr i kompozycja. Szkoda, ¿e niebo nie dopisa³o ;-).
mikhalych (1319) 2006-03-21 2:38
Nikolo-Ugreshsky Monastery is a beautiful place in any weather and you managed to show this beauty very well. Maybe I'll post an autumn photo taken almost from the same point :)
capthaddock (28790) 2006-03-21 12:45
Hi Tanya - beautiful architecture combined with wintry conditions make an irresistably attractive photo, I like how the golden dome stands out. I think this monastery was on the cover of the guidebook I used, made me want to visit it but I didn't have time.
tinamunk3 (6408) 2006-03-21 14:51
What a beautiful view of this old church. I love those traditional domes. Nice colours and very well composed. And the snow on the trees looks amazing - I bet it was freezing cold when you took this shot :O)

Hello, Tatiana, I can't even imagine how cold it can get there in Russia. In this picture you show well the beauty of this weather, with a good composition of the tops of the churches and the branches - the shapes are really well explored, and the whites are well mixed with the other colors. Congratulations on your work and best regards from Brazil!
