Hello and congratulations on 8 yrs.
Very nice picture postcard of the old church especially the way you placed the flowering tree on the left as a frame.
This is a special site unlike the others because there is such a wonderful sense of camaraderie here.
Hoping to see more photos from you in the future.

Happy 8 years here on TE! I like this photo because the blue and yellow colors of the church are matched by the colors of the sky and leaves surrounding it. It's nice that you chose one dome to include in this composition.

Une belle photo pour fêter l'évenement. Une bonne harmonie des couleurs avec le clocher jaune qui se découpe sur un beau ciel bleu.
Amitiés et bonne journée.

Congratulations on 8 years of sharing fine pics, for the short time I have been here it has been a pleasure to see the world through your eyes. And this is no exception, vivid colors and enticing detail of this church, combined with the vivid lively green of the tree make this a very beautiful scene.
Thanks as always for sharing, and I raise a glass to eight years more :)

I like it!

Congratulations on your 8th year on TE.
You chose a nice shot to celebrate this milestone. The vertical format is nice emphasizing the height of the tower and including the tree. The yellow leaves on the tree compliments the tower nicely. The lighting and colors are great as is the photo's sharpness and DOF.

Good morning my dear friend,
Congratulations on the benchmark! Wow, 8 years...you've become one of the old timers. :) A fine ambassador for TE, and you've certainly left an impression with many wonderful pictures and comments over the years. And for me personally, my very first TE meeting. :))
It's been a true pleasure getting to know your work and sharing many of the same interests. Maybe I will bring a cake to celebrate?? lol
Love the idea to mark the occasion with a picture from your hometown, striking that personal connection. The three distinct colors are simple and strong, an instance where the "less is more" concept works wonderfully. Cheers to another 8+ years and many more pictures to come!! Have a great day ahead. All the very best.
Friendliest wishes from the U.S.,

Serghei, congratulations on 8 years on TE. That's a long time! Interesting church, particularly the steeple, with yellows framed by the yellow leaves on the tree. Thanks.

Wow, colours are really intense on this one! And they come nicely in pairs. Blue sky and church. Yellowish foliage and the dome and cross.
Nicou (143272) 2014-07-30 18:55
Merveilleuse vue et compo cet arbre aux feuilles jaunes et ce clocher avec le doré au sommet et la forme et la croix dans un ciel bleu pur superbe.
Bravo et amitié

What a lovely colorful image to celebrate your 8th years with the TE! Bravo! This is a fantastic anniversary and I wish you another years with this fantastic community:)
Bravo for the spectacular color management of that image! TFS!
Have a nice weekend!

Belated congratulations on your anniversary. I missed lots of pictures while I was cut off from the net for several days after a thunder storm. This is a stunning composition with very good colours and light. It seems to capture something essentially Russian, although the blue and yellow also for some strange reason make me think of Ukraine :-).

Greetings from Istanbul

gratuliere dir zu dieser langen Zeit, andere, so wie ich brauchten einelange Pause, weil sie mit den Endscheidungen nicht einverstanden waren (Exekutionen von Fotos!!!)
Ich dachte zuerst, OMG = OH MY GOT
Dein Foto ist großartig, gratuliere dir herzlich

Hello Mr. Itchy Feet, Congratulations for your 8th TE birthday! Impressive numbers, and difficult to count the hours spent by computer, writing notes and choosing photos. Many meetings and soon will be the next one :). And marvelous photo to celebrate this occasion. Just two colours, strong blue and yellow, amazing that the walls and sky have the same colour. The tree also brings a lot to the composition. Hope to see this lovely church.

bellissimi contrasti di colore su questo splendido taglio verticale.
Molto bella la luce che colpisce le foglie dell'albero e le rende gialle come la cupola della torre.
Bello scatto per festeggiare 8 anni di presenza e di continuo rinnovamento di foto e soggetti.
adores (45643) 2014-08-07 16:31
Hope this is just the beginning:)! Beautiful shot, I like the combination of blue, white and yellow. Well framed!
ChrisJ (114799) 2014-08-08 3:52
Thankyou for staying at TE for 8 years too! Love the warm cold color contrast here between the yellow cupolas of the church, the yellow gren leaves of the tree at left, and the blue sky. Good sharpness and a wise choice of a vertical frame. Good sharpness and shadow detail. Tfs!

A belated congratulations on your 8 years on TE! You celebrated the occasion with a magnificent photo, I love the different shades of blue represented in the frame with the lovely golden onion dome.
