Halfway between Moscow and Tula, in the midst of fields and hills above the river Oka in the Kokino village Bogoyavlenskaya (Epiphany) church (1794) stands. It was restored from ruins recently and the church-actions are provided now.
The shot was taken in the shafts of sunset. It was unusully warm day and evening so I've got the autumnal colours during the summer weather. Happy New Year and good shots to all!

simple compo yet beautiful, nice light on the church, and the yellow tree in the corner adds a little bit of color, well done.

Nice, simple composition, which works very well. Lovely colours on the orange/yellow leaves and the church is well positioned in the frame. The effect of the blue sky is great and adds impact.

I really love this one ! Superb autumn sunny sky. The blue of the sky contrasts with the brown / yellow of the tree leaves.
Beautiful pure architecture, these domes seem to merge with the sky. Well done !
A very happy new year 2006 !
Best regards. Christian

выдающийся !!! Hi Tatiana, this is superb :))!! In particular, I like the very small gap of sky that you left between the tree and the upper part of the belfry in the right tower

une composition vraiment dans le style que je aime.
Des couleurs chaudes, un cadrage qui inclut de la nature, cet arbre à droite.
Un paysage calme inondé de lumières acceuilantes créant des contrastes toujours interessants.
Le choix du format horizontal parfaitement bien adapté ici.
rabani (9645) 2006-04-18 0:39
The choice of exposure is good here. The church is well defined and the autumnal colors just make the total sum of this photo, warm and friendly. Your framing on right side, is a good idea. It kinda balanced the photo.
nyquist (66) 2006-04-20 23:12
Very nice picture. As other said, I like very much the contrast between the sky, the tree and the white house. The tree also gives some deepness to the picture.
Thanks for your work,
repaulson (607) 2006-04-25 15:47
Tatiana, Well framed and the colors are great. Cheers - Ross

This is a beautiful composition!
The colour combination is wonderful... the white church really stands out on the blue sky, framed by the yellow leaves...
The image is very well composed, with good details!
waseemkhan (1099) 2007-04-10 5:27

daddo (24404) 2007-12-24 0:58
Zdravo Tatiana Pavlova. Beautiful church made even more eye-catching because of the sun's light and the lovely golden touches in its windows which echo the colour of the leaves. Excellent pov. Happy New Year. Klaudio.
npecanhuk (66276) 2009-07-11 3:19
In addition to the inherent simple beauty of the church, what mostly calls my attention in this one is the autumnal colors and lights! They were perfectly captured here and they please me so much!
TFS - congratulations!
