hello Serghei ,
No more snow in your country , but not yet leaves in the tree . That is the moment to take the picture of this superb orange Church , contrasting with the blue sky .

Serghei my friend, how are you this evening? Based on these last couple of pictures, I hope this means you've been out scouting for locations...as you can imagine, I'm even more interested now in the Ural region. :))
A beautiful church with a color that works in perfect harmony with the blue sky...and best part of it, no snow. lol
Good thing you've taken this picture now, the barren tree branches allow for a line of sight which would otherwise be completely obstructed once in full foliage. Bright, clear and sharply focused to expose all of the fine detail and lovely architecture. Hope you've had a nice weekend. Take good care.
Cheers from the U.S.,

questa foto è bellissima.
Mi piace sia la composizione con la chiesa che appare dietro i rami dell'albero, sia i fantastici colori che esaltano la straordinaria architettura messa a confronto con un bel cielo blu.
Nitidezza, contrasto, colori e composizione eccellenti.
Ciao e buon inizio di settimana

dopo tanto girovagare vediamo anche le bellezze di casa tua.
Molto bella questa chiesa, il suo colore colpisce l'attenzione e la tua composizione con i rami senza foglie, la rende ancora più fotograficamente interessante.

Прямо так и называется - Оса?
Давно я тут не был, забросил солнечный ТЕ совсем. Хорошая, добротная фотка, как всегда, и наши краснокирпичные всегда хороши.
Как оно все, и как все прочее? Мои западноукраинские родственники совсем по ту сторону добра и зла переместились, на фоне происходящих событий, и изъясняются мифологемами.

Great colours of another sunny day, and the snow seems to be gone already. You composed this nicely with the branches of the birch trees partly covering the upper half of the view. The light and contrasts are really superb. Did a fine church like this actually function as a church, so far away from Moscow, during Soviet times? Or was this another grain store or archives building or lecture hall?

Attractive Victorian style church, elaborate art works, rose windows, and those dramatic gold towers. And interesting positioning seen through the tree branches and tombstone foreground.
Thanks for sharing,
PS: I have taken numerous photography classes, and a consensus opinion is to avoid too much sky, even if it has clouds. Which is why I often crop the sky out of my photos.

I think Russian architectures are distinctive and beautiful especially the towers. Awesome capture of this church and I like the branches in the foreground. Good details and wonderful colors. Well done, tfs.

The intricate lace work of the bare branches nicely frame the church but do not obscure the delightful architecture. The image is very well lit and has excellent colours and clarity. The saturated blue sky makes a superb backdrop for the rich red tones of the brickwork and the golden domes.

Ce que j'aime dans cette photo, c'est qu'elle me ressemble, dans ce sens que j'aurais certainement aimé la prendre moi-même. J'aurais recherché le même point de vue ainsi que la même lumière.

A very elegant and interesting presentation of one of the most beautiful churches I've ever seen. I like very much the graphical layout and the contrast between the splendid view of red church and the blue sky.
Very well done.

well taken picture and interesting architecture presented. I love the orthodox style and its decorative details. The white ornaments of the church contrast nicely with the red bricks and create eye catching effect. Good use of the delicate branches to add some foreground and frame the picture in natural way.
Pretty colors and well given sharpness.
Thanks for sharing

Superb POV of this beautiful church, seen through the branches of the tree, which give a good graphics, I love the volumes and shapes of domes and towers, its red color on the front, makes the most striking image.
Very good brightness and sharpness, with beautiful colors.
Well seen and done better. I Like
Have a good day.

What an incredible building. The combination of the colors blue red and gold look perfect. Although this church does not look huge in size, the wonderful detail and the gold turrets make it seems a lot more impressive than its size belies. Beautiful place and image, thanks again for sharing.

You chose to shoot through the tree branches and had brought us a picture of lovely composition and a bit of mystery. A beautiful old building in lovely colours.

Impressive church, I recognize the specific Russian architecture. Well taken, great colors.
Have a fine evening.

amazing Orthodox church in this Osa. Striking colours - domes made of pure gold, red walls and deep blue sky. Interesting including of the graveyard. Soon this view will be covered by leaves, here the bare branches give nice framing. Excellent composition.

Très jolie église orthodoxe dont la couleur contraste beaucoup avec le bleu du ciel. Bien fait.

The branches are helping to frame the church. The point of view is showing the details and the colors of the architecture of the Holy Mother of God church. The good luminosity is making the colors to stand out. Have a nice day.
