I cannot imagine a better photograph could be produced of this magnificent edifice — especially as it is illuminated by direct sunlight, and set against an overcast sky. I remember seeing a very beautiful church that reminds me of this one. Restored to its original glory, it is reminiscent of a similar architectural gem in Yalta.

Lepa stara crkva ...
Lepo izgleda obnovljena crkva sa kupolama i krstovima koji idu u nebo.
Dobra ostrina snimka i kontrast kojim ste istakli detalje na fasadi crkve, lepa fotografija.
Dobar rad i kompozicija, lepe boje.
Beautiful old church ...
Looks nice renovated church with domes and crosses that are in heaven.
Good length and severity, which have emphasized the contrast detail on the facade of the church, beautiful images.
Good work and composition, beautiful colors.
Have a nice day.
All the best.

Good Morning Sergiy,
What a beautiful church, perfectly sharp and surprisingly distinct against that cloudy sky.
What are those blue shapes infront of the church? Are they memorials?
Have a good day,

This is a wonderful picture with excellent light, subdued by the dark sky. The fine church is well placed to the right with its colours nicely complemented by the blue and white crosses and tombstones to the left. An ideal composition.

Hello Sergiy - The blues, white and gold of this church are almost luminous under the sunlight. The building seems to glow. Beautifully captured against the soft grey sky and nicely placed within the frame. The greens add a very good contrast both in colour and texture. What a lovely place. Best regards Rosemary
axiotea (21647) 2011-12-13 8:38
Perfect light which illuminates so well the church revealing its lovely architectural details. Really nice colours as well, especially the "pale" blue. The menacing sky is also great!
lakshmip1949 (19110) 2011-12-13 8:41

Mon regard a tout d'abord été attiré par ce ciel qui est souvent l'élément que je regarde en premier lieu.Il y a bien longtemps que je n'avais plus critiqué une de ces merveilleuse église au dôme doré. Cette super production me donne l'occasion d'exprimer toute mon admiration face à ce genre d'édifice.

Ciao dear Sergiy,
this church is right to consider an architectural monument, because it's really beautiful. A photo absolutely perfect, characterized by the incredible sharpness and clarity of the lines, with a wonderful brightness. The soft turquoise tones and the white contrasts nicely with the cloudy sky. Another example of your photographic skills. Congratulations!
Ciao, have a nice Thursday!

Quelle merveilleuse église bien plantée dans ce paysage. L'architecture est de toute beauté et bien mise en valeur par le bel éclairage même sous un ciel nuageux. Excellente qualité d'image et parfait rendu des couleurs.
Toutes mes félicitations!...
pablominto (53744) 2011-12-15 23:16
The golden onion shaped domes seem to be characteristic for the church architecture here, together with the pastel colours!
A fine piece of architecture indeed, lovely location in rural surroundings...
And the composition does justice to the church, a well balanced presentation with good details!
jhm (128325) 2011-12-17 0:45

beautiful architecture! It is another treasure in your collection of orthodox churches, they are all so pretty and colorful. This one here seems again to have a very different charm and character. You have captured in a great light with an interesting sky.
nikkitta (9205) 2011-12-17 11:40
So you return to the Russia churches ?
This is a very beautiful one, like the soft blue color of the wall combined with white and the fabulous golden domes
Great POV to show the contrast with the vegetation
Also like the blue crosses of what must be the cemetery
Well done TFS
jlbrthnn (79789) 2011-12-19 10:25
Again, one of these magnificent Orthodox churches in fantastic shapes and colors. the cemetery is also colored. The off-center composition is very pleasing to see that way. Light, color and clarity are excellent. Bravo.
Have a nice evening

What a beautiful local church from the village, very nice with wall painted in blue, borders in white and finally domes in golden color, tidy shot to frame it, nice greenery environment too, distinct image, good shoot.
skippy007 (12504) 2011-12-28 22:59
Hello Sergiy, beautiful church, magnificent colour & clarity as always. This church really stands out I think it is because of the direct soft sunlight & the grey sky in BG, beautiful image, well done.
Regards & a Happy New Year.
jmdias (48515) 2012-01-14 16:10
I liked the curious tower painted in a darker blue, it created a nice visual effect with the other shapes ond colors of this impressive church. TFS.

kennyblack (4207) 2012-04-04 10:19
It does not seem real this beautiful church in an outline so simple and modest. The contrast is fabulous as well as the detail and colors. You did a great job Sergiy, congratulations and thanks for the post.
Greetings and best wishes for good evening ... Marino
