The Assumption Cathedral
Constructed by the order of Ivan the Terrible. Austere and monumental, it follows the forms of the Assumption Cathedral of Moscow Kremlin which was a symbol of the state power. The narrow high windows in two rows underline the impressively thick walls.
The Assumption Cathedral is the church that is visited by pilgrims and tourists alike and unfortunately you are not allowed to flash there. All of the columns and walls are decorated with beautiful and ornate paintings and frescos and the giant iconostasis is also worth to take a closer look at.

Zdravo Sasko. Your series of Russian edifices is wonderful whether taken from inside or outside. it is the inside shots that offer the greater challenges which you have mastered beautifully, retaining the atmosphere of such sanctified spaces.Marvelous details and sublime light. Pozdrav. Klaudio.

beautiful decoration of wall. I like most the light and colours most. Astonished how you can get this type of clarity with only with exposer 3.5. Great composition with vertical framing. Excellent. Tfs.

I see the interior is not less impressive and you are as good in presenting it. The richness of detail is amazing. Your perspective is very original here.
I like the bright lights coming from windows, they introduce an interesting atmosphere here.
Have a good weekend,

Hi dear Sasko, what a mystical photo of a very mystical place. The light is almost supernatural. i love the vertical frame which elongates the already tall walls and vertical lines. The colours are unusual and very beautiful. Great shot, really unique. TFS and I wish you a beautiful weekend, Lisa
