Since January 19, 2010, the city of Pyatigorsk is the administrative center of the North Caucasian Federal District of Russia. Since March 22, 2011, the city also is the cathedral city of Pyatigorsk-and-Cherkesk Eparchy comprising Orthodox churches of the Caucasian Mineral Waters Region, Kabardino-Balkaria and Karachay-Cherkessia. In the picture you can see Mikhailo-Arkhangelskiy Sobor, the main cathedral of this eparchy. It was built at the end of XIX century.
At Soviet times the cathedral was used as a warehouse. Now it is fully reconstructed. But the cathedral is surrounded by commercial buildings, and there is little space around it. It was impossible to find a point of view, from where the entire church went in a single shot. I had to make two shots and stitch them.

A very impressive cathedral and a very good picture where the church is symmetrical position and filling the view in a pleasant way. The white building looks good against the blue sky, with the green roofs as accents. Perfect sharpnes and an interesting note!

You chose a good POV to show us the volumes and shape of this church. Interesting story about it being used as a warehouse... quite strange, but I won't comment on politics!
Quality colours and textures too.

A nice view of the main cathedral of Pyatigorsk region.
The beautiful architecture, but it is always so difficult in urban areas framed building that does not spoil the environment.
Stunning architecture of this beautiful church.
Excellent photo work in nice sunny old times.
All the best, dear friend.

a great idea and an excellent job to stitch two pictures in order to present this magnificent cathedral more efficiently. I like very much the angle from which we are looking at two sides of the building getting a lot of captivating details and a delightful play of light and shadow. Your exposure and lighting are superb, sharpness and contrasts are excellent and the lit parts have a very appealing luminosity. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely month,

A superb composition, with a superb POV, which shows two of the facades of the cathedral, very beautiful and varied volumes, this elegant building, where the vast dome gives charm to the whole.
A fantastic brightness and clarity, enhancing every detail of the construction.
Have a nice day.
