On that day when I was to Astrakhan, I had to visit Astrakhan Kremlin several times till the sun appeared and I was able to capture these two architectural monuments of 21 of them there.
The two buildings are the Assumption Cathedral built in 1698 – 1710 and the cathedral's bell tower with Prechistinsky Gate built in 1908 – 1912.

A great use of colors and light. The deep depth of field is perfect. A well presented crop allows eyes to remain fixed on the kremlin. This is a really excellent photo, and is a good example of architectural mode. The great light on the kremlin and the blue-gray sky color in the background also lends a lovely contrast to the scene. Have a nice weekend.

I like very much the way you have composed this lovely, deep and comprehensive view. Your several visits there surely helped you find the best light but also study well the place, the architecture and the perspectives. Your composition is very confident and pleasing, you are presenting the impressive architecture from a very effective point of view, with excellent sharpness and lighting that highlight the details having tamed the shining white surfaces. A wonderful picture, congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great day,

I would never have guessed this photo was taken in Russia. I was going to guess Romania or something similar.
what a strange clock tower on the left! so tall and yet the bottom portion seems so out of size!
but i love it for what it is and how it presents in the photo. very interesting architecture in russia.
thanks for this post
adramad (38509) 2012-10-14 10:58
A great composition of stunning beauty, the two buildings are very beautiful and POV is great, the whiteness of the walls creates a nice chromaticism with green domes, is a magnificent work, with good sharpness and brightness. I love is style buildings.

Hi Sergiy !
Good shot of this wonderful church.

mkamionka (30694) 2012-10-14 11:42
wow, this is very impressive architecture. I have heard the name of the town but never imagined what is there to see. The churches are so beautiful. You captured them in perfect light.
nikkitta (14858) 2012-10-17 13:24
And finally a church with tower, domes and golden cupolas
all presented with a superb light from a perfect POV
A great architectural capture that deserved your visits
Greetings and TFS
holmertz (41695) 2012-10-18 7:28
This is an exceptionally beautiful building and a very well composed picture. The white, green and gold looks fantastic against the dark sky, especially with the very good light shining on the façades. The lawn in the foreground matches the cupolas nicely and the benches underscore the diagonal emphasis of the composition. Even the yellow car is important for the composition, just for once, and I also appreciate the two persons to the left in red shirts. They are small but still add something.
sacavem (18610) 2012-11-08 11:49

I am able to appreciate the volume architectre
But the wide angle gave a little distortion on the belltower

Спасибо за презентацию. Никогда не думал, что там такая красота. Классно! Отличное фото, детализация великолепная. Еще более удивительно, что все это при помощи велосипеда, а не как большинство- самолеты, поезда... Буду ждать продолжения репортажа. Успехов!
