Nikolskoe (5234 inhabitants) is the largest settlement in the separated northwestern third part of Yenotayevskiy District and the second largest settlement in the whole district, after its administrative center, Yenotayevka (7616 inhabitants). Although the village of Nikolskoe is old enough (its history began in the XVIII century), it is not considered as a cultural-heritage settlement, as Astrakhan, for example, but in the village there are two cultural-heritage architectural objects, including this church in the name of Rozhdestva Presvyatoy Bogoroditsi (the Nativity of the Theotokos) build at the end of the XIX century.
Being a cultural-heritage object, the church is restoring very carefully, with comprehensive study of all archive documents about its original architectural and decorative designs. Amid delivering religious services, its exterior walls is still under reconstruction and renovation, while the interior and cupolas are fully completed.

Доброе утро, Сергей,
красивая архитектура, хорошая детализация. Напоминает церковь из деревни, откуда тянутся мои корни. Была реконструирована под клуб в свое время.

A splendid POV, which captures this impressive church, from a low point, raising the prospect of building all this wonderful variety of volumes and domes of the building, a nice touch those bushes we see in the lower.
It's a very beautiful composition, with high quality, both in its sharpness, brightness and perfect, giving us a rich picture of nuances to enjoy.
Have a nice day.

The view up is excellent. The composition is well chosen, with excellent combination of light and colors and perfect deep depth of field. I like the clear blue sky because it contrasts nicely with the white-beige church. Great photo!!
nikkitta (17068) 2012-11-15 15:11
You are quite good in shooting with good POV , light and clearness all these very nice orthodox churches
I am learning from your post that they are mainly white with color domes and topped by golden crosses
Good to restore them
Greetings and congrats

jmdias (68691) 2012-12-02 1:06
very beautiful the shapes of this church, in some aspects ortodox churches in my state try to imitate this style using modern materials, I guess you should have seen one I posted few days ago.
very beautiful light and sharpness.
