Photographer's Note

The famous St Basil`s Cathedral is a delightful array of swirling colors and redbrick towers. Its design comprises nine individual chapels, each topped with a unique onion dome and each commemorating a victorious assault on the city of Kazan. The church's design is based on deep religious symbolism and was meant to be an architectural representation of the New Jerusalem - the Heavenly Kingdom described in the Book of Revelation of St. John the Divine. It was built in the 16th century (1555-1561) on Red Square by Ivan the Terrible.
My Corrections: perspective distortion (slightly), removing lamposts, cropping image, new signature... Thank you for your critiques!
