Yet another Russian Orthodox Church, in Irkutsk, this one, not far from the bus station. I liked the unusual pink & green colour combination here.
Some of these churches date back to the mid Eighteenth century, & earlier.

Hi Chris! Good shot of the Orthodox Church. I like the perspective. Also strong and lively colors looks brilliant. Very well captured. :-)

Indeed the colour combination is very interesting. The church itself is very pretty with its round dome and pinnacle very close to each other. Nice framing and sharpness for this image. Cheers :-)

Certainly an out of the ordinary colour combination and not what you would expect to see in a traditional Western church. Well composed with good tones and clarity. I like the long perspective and the framing from the grass. Thanks for sharing.

These colors are very unique. the roofs are sharing color with the grass. The pink is so unusual and works so well with the green. Very interesting.

Une belle papagolfade. Le ciel gris donne une allure un peu triste à l'image mais les couleurs de l'église réhaussent le tout. Le cadrage et la compo sont bien pensés.

I'm always impressed by the bright colours of Russian churches, and this is a great example of that. The pink and green exterior really catches the imagination, and seems totally at odds with churches in western Europe. Thanks for sharing!

Lovely colours of the church, especially the contrast with pink & green. A good perspective with fine depth in this diagonal compo. Well done!

yes, the colors of the building are very interesting here. I liked this pov and the light is soft and shows nicely the church. It is sad the sky so cloudy
